If you enjoyed years 1-4 then you're going to buy this anyway. You won't be disappointed. It's the same concept, as expected, with the added extra of duels which at times become a little tedious. I'm no video game expert, to fully complete at 100% took me 17 hours. I'm guessing that's about average for a part time gamer. Seemed a little shorter than 1-4 but maybe that's just my gaming has improved since 1-4. Overall I enjoyed the game. I'm a big fan of the Lego game franchise. We have this game for the Wii and the Xbox but they're staying tucked away till Christmas.

This is the second in the HP series of LEGO games, and is a decent attempt at encapsulating the film version into a game. We have every LEGO game going, for the PS2, the DS and the PSP, they all get played on a very regular basis but the HP ones lack a bit of the fun and humour of the other franchise games. Indiana Jones and Star Wars add a bit of fun to the games, with occasional in-jokes or effects but the HP games seem a bit less entertaining in this way.
The challenges are good, but it feels as if this set of games is not geared towards adults as much, making it less fun for our teenage son too.
Bought for Birthday present for my son who is 11. He has Years 1-4 so this is a great continuation of the entire game. He is thoroughly enjoying unlocking all the different levels etc and I think this is perfect for his age group or a little younger. Any Harry Potter fan will love it.
