Being a fan of Lego games since I was very little, and being a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, it only made sense to buy this game. Going through all the levels, may be a little boring at times, but if you like the Potter series, I would definitely buy this. It is very amusing to be able to fly on brooms, explore Hogwarts, and use magic along the way. Overall, I thought it was an amazing game, and a great buy.

The Lego formula is perfected in Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7. These games are fun puzzle games which can be enjoyed by adults or kids alike. If you're even the slightest bit familiar with the world of Harry Potter, you will delight in seeing familiar characters and settings brought to life through the humorous whimsy of Lego. The game isn't very difficult to complete, but the real joy in the game is in the playful nature of the Lego setting. You can smash things in the environment to pieces to collect Lego studs, or assemble bricks and pieces to solve puzzles or navigate the environment. There is a lot to see and do, and completing everything will take dozens of hours. A very enjoyable experience.

This game is what is great about lego. Every single moment involved in this beautiful homage to the Harry Potter books and films is filled with brilliant humor and absolutely jaw droppingly great moments. Fans of the Harry Potter franchise will find plenty to both like and love in this game which follows harry and his friends (an enemies) from years 5-7 and overall the game is a good improvement on the first game. There are much less bugs and the control system is much improved as well as the graphics which shine and bring the world to life in an impressive style. if you enjoy adventure games this Lego Harry Potter game is a must purchase and great for any fans of either lego or harry potter
A lot less bugs than in Years 1-4 makes it a lot more fun.sergebelanger22 | Aug. 6, 2013 | See all sergebelanger22's reviews »
I have to say that I have played about every LEGO games so far, and this one contains about all the fixes that should have been included in the previous ones.
There is no more glitches about the cauldrons, where you cannot complete the game unless you start a new game from scratch. The only bug I encountered is that my character was stuck behing a staircase. Since I played local multiplayer, I just had to abandon and get back into the game and that was fix. We did not lose anything since the other player was still in the game.
I still love the fact that the screen splits so the 2 players can mostly go on their own way. Also, it splits in a way that it is easy to find your partner when you need to help him.
As usual, there is plenty of stuff to find for the completionists. It takes a good 25 hours if you want your 100% completion. There are 200 characters to find and buy (with in game coins), there are 200 golden bricks to gather and 24 levels +1 where you have to get 1 000 000 coins.
Graphics look as nice as a LEGO game can be in my opinion. The sound needs to be cranked up a bit, but nothing major.
I recommend you to play this game with your kids or girlfriend/boyfriend. It is a lot more fun with a person beside you and who can help you when you are stuck on a puzzle or want to get somewhere and it just seems impossible from your point of view.
At around 20$ in regular price, it sure worths every penny.

I've only played one other LEGO game, LEGO star wars, which was one of my favourite games on the ps2. If you're looking for something similar, then I would definitely suggest buying this.
