Today is the day that LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 goes on sale. Checking out the scores on for the game on GameRankings.com, they show a solid 80% average score for the game an all major consoles. More reviews are sure to come but this is a good start. Considering the amount of replay value one gets with the LEGO games by Traveler’s Tales, it’s a worthy investment if you’re a fan of Harry Potter, LEGO games, or both. The following is an excerpt from the review on Gamespot.com:
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is easily the best Harry Potter game to date, though if that sounds like a backhanded compliment, consider this: It’s one of the finest Lego adventures to date as well, which is no faint praise. By minimizing the repetitive combat and inconsistent platforming, Traveller’s Tales has also minimized the frustrations, making this excursion to Hogwarts enjoyable for the whole family. Minor flaws, old and new alike, keep Lego Harry Potter from becoming a family-friendly classic, but it’s charming and funny, and most importantly, it’s fun. And that kind of magic is all too uncommon, even in Harry’s world.
