New LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Trailer

They even guarantees release day delivery if you so choose it at checkout (delivery fee applies and varies). Game is available for Xbox360, PS3, Wii, PSP, DS, and PC. On to the video:

This game looks really funny! :D

I hope the way you choose levels is better than in LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues...it was a creative approach, but I thought it was kind of a mess.

I'll buy the game when it comes out and post the system requirements from the manual in the forums.

The system requirements are listed on Amazon.com. Unless those are just grabbed from the last LEGO game they sold, since they are identical to the system requirements for LEGO Indiana Jones 2. Of course they didn't LIST the requirements on that one (at least not before it came out). I checked.

I think the XBOX demo came out earlier this month, but the PC demo just arrived yesterday, too:

(PS3 demo should be sometime this week, I think?)

Thanks for the link! That gives one the chance to test if it runs on the PC... not like with Indy 2, which I bought for realising that it did NOT work on my PC.

Not gonna lie...if you can't run a LEGO game on you're computer, that's pretty sad, :lol:

Sorry, I don't want to sonud like an sarlacc pit or anything, but they usually have pretty low requirements. :P

Hey!... well, Lego Star Wars runs fine, even the Complete Saga. Indy 1 too. But Indy 2 had graphical problems.

Really? That's wierd. Whatever, I still need to beat that game, I've had it for so long and haven't even beaten the Crystal Skull stuff haha. I just really didn't like how they set up the hub.

For UK buyers, Sainsbury's have this for £24.99 ... around £10 cheaper than anywhere else :)

Not really. At least, anybody that doesn't have either a PC designed for games, or a decent graphics card added on, isn't going to be able to play them.

Yeah, if you are into the latest and greatest games, your PC is easily going to be able to handle it, but if you are somebody that doesn't have a computer set up for gaming, and just thought, "Hey, a LEGO game! That looks cool." you will most likely be out of luck.

My computer meets or exceeds all the requirements for Indy 2, but I still had to turn down the graphics settings from the defaults to get the performance to an acceptable level. I expect I'll have to do the same for Potter, but I can't spring for a new computer at this point, and my graphics card is already WELL over the required minimum.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Before I bought my iMac, I just played the games on my family computer which dated back to 354 BC. :lol: I always thought "A LEGO game for the computer? It can't be graphically demanding." I guess not.

Played the demo. I'm liking this game. It seems they have learned lessons from past games and applied them here. Some of the best features of previous games have been combined, and some of the more annoying ones have been minimized (of course this is only a demo, so that could be different for other levels, but the one review I read seemed to think this was the case for the game as a whole).

And yes, I did have to turn down the graphics settings, but when I did, it played great.

Is the demo not working for anyone else?
I went to the site and clicked on the download link. I had to wait 35 minutes until the run button finally came up, then the download screen kept loading at 1 second.
I do have a pretty fast computer, and this doesn't usually happen. Anyone else?

Nope, it's working fine for me here– both when I first posted the demo link and just a second ago when I tried again.

I appreciate your enthusiasm to help, but you could have posted it in this thread. You even commented, and were aware of the question of the pc requirements.

Yes I know, but this thread was titled "New LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Trailer" so I thought I would make a new thread...whatever it's been placed here.

Despite not having a graphics card that is quite up to snuff, I decided to give the demo a try. After downloading and installing, I started the demo and got to the first room. Everything is there BUT the playable characters!! I can move them and interact with the game environment, switch characters, but I can't see them at all. In fact, I have no idea which character I was even playing! Adds a new dimension to the game! :lol:

Well, I got the game, and it is the best one yet, IMHO. However, it does have a few nasty glitches that can prevent one from finishing it. I didn't encounter the worst one, which gets your character stuck in a loop in one room, unable to progress. This one caught several people, playing on different platforms, too, which surprised me a bit. So far all they get from tech support is a "we're looking into it". In the meantime all they can do is start over.

My glitch was both more and less frustrating than that one. Less, because it didn't interfere with completing any of the levels, but more because, since it wasn't obvious, I got to about 98% complete on the game before, in search of the few items I was missing, I gave up and resorted to the internet walkthroughs, only to find that there was an area that I was SUPPOSED to be able to access, but which, after I opened the door, still had an invisible wall in the doorway preventing me from entering. At the time, I had just thoought that maybe it wasn't supposed to be accessible outside of the story level that it was in, but no, I'm probably going to have to start from scratch if I want to complete the game and HOPE that this time the glitch doesn't happen. Grrrr!!!!

If the Demo works, the real game should work too, shouldn't it?
