Newt Scamander and his Beasts
Newt Scamander is a Magizoologist who has been traveling the world to find and document magical creatures, hoping to educate the wizarding world about why they are important and need to be protected. In his travels, he has rescued a wide variety of beasts, great and small, which he keeps in a case that magically provides more than enough room for the menagerie he cares for and protects. Newt is an outsider, a bit awkward, and more comfortable with creatures than his fellow wizards and witches. Hailing from England, he was once a student at Hogwarts but was expelled for endangering human life with a beast. Yet there was one professor who fought for him, a certain Albus Dumbledore. No one could have imagined then that Newt would someday write one of Hogwarts’ most important textbooks: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The mischievous Niffler is small, furry and black with a long, rounded snout, making it look like a cross between a mole and a duck-billed platypus. With an irrepressible predilection for anything glittery, this burrowing but remarkably fast and agile little beast will snatch or steal whatever shiny object catches its eye. The Niffler stores its treasures in the pouch on its belly, which holds considerably more than seems possible. Though gentle and even affectionate, the Niffler can be quite destructive in its pursuit of sparkly things, so, word to the wise: they do not make good house pets.
The sprig-like Bowtruckle can be immensely difficult to spot in a natural environment as it is not only very small but also can easily blend into any foliage. It is a maximum of eight inches in height and appears to be made out of a tree stem with roots, tiny leafy _branches and two brown eyes. Newt has at least six of these little beasts—named Pickett, Titus, Finn, Poppy, Marlow and Tom—though he can’t help but play favorites with Pickett, whom he keeps safe in his breast pocket. The Bowtruckle, which eats only insects, is a peaceable and intensely shy creature.
The Thunderbird is a large, regal avian creature native to the arid climate of Arizona. Its head is similar to that of an eagle or, in the wizarding world, a Hippogriff. Its multiple powerful wings shimmer with cloud- and sun-like patterns and their flapping can create storms. Thunderbirds can also sense danger. After rescuing a Thunderbird from traffickers in Egypt, Newt named him Frank and promised to return him to his natural habitat in Arizona. Sadly, one of Frank’s legs bears the wounds of having been chained, but his gratitude to Newt for having rescued him is evident.

Years 5-7 on the other hand, is brilliant. There are so many things you have to do in order to complete each level. Being able to use the pets for example, or the spectrespecs... The characters on screen are bit bigger too, so you can actually see who you're playing with, a delight when it comes to custom characters. They also added a "duelling club" which gives you the opportunity to duel against all the characters from the game.
I saw some negative reviews focusing on the lack of proper "DS" interaction. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the touch screen, so I'm glad that the developers decided to put that aside and instead give us a more complete experience of the game. I can understand why people who already have the console version would find this annoying, but it's great for those who only have the DS one.
The only downside is the dreadful quality of the cutscenes, but apart from that I am very happy with this game.
Don't get me wrong, I completely loved the 1-4 yrs version I very almost completed the game (just missing a couple characters), the controls were simples, spells made sense and things were reasonably difficult but never impossible.
Just buy the first one and forget this one existed, it's a waste of time and money.
Years 5 - 7 is a superb game, however, my son (now 6 years) struggles with it. It is much trickier and moving through the levels is not as easy, with lots of problems to be worked out. As soon as he gives up, I continue and I think it is brilliant but even I have had to try and find out how to do certain things on the internet.
I would say that this game is better for the older Harry Potter fan and leave the younger ones to the years 1 - 4.
The game is accurate to the books/movies but could've done with more detail. What really set me back, however, was the quality of the cutscenes. Half the time I couldn't see what was going on which was really disappointing. I'm also not a huge fan of the control system in the DS version; that's just my opinion, though, and I know many others probably like it. I, however, just couldn't get used to it.
I also miss the inclusion of a 'base'. In Years 1-4 on Wii you had The Leaky Cauldron, and you could even go out into Diagon Alley. In this DS version, however, all you have is a small version of Hogwarts with limited things to do, and a small 'shop' for buying all your extras and characters.
Although I enjoyed the game I think I'll find myself replaying the Wii Years 1-4 before I replay this. I'm even considering buying the Wii version of this, too, and just finding a way around the glitch. From what I've seen the Wii version includes much more detail, bigger levels and much better quality in the cutscenes.
I personally also found the duels a bit boring, but my son likes them, so I guess that's just personal preference (or age) talking.

Great games my daughter loved years 1-4 and says these games are better than she thought and she liked the Lego games so this combies both her interests.Published 16 months ago by joey
