Harry Potter is one of the most recognized and loved book and movie series of all time and to make a video game that lives up to the expectations is a tough task. Lego Harry Potter is one of the rare movie based games that are actually a lot of fun. The magic of the movies is kept alive while being retold from inside the world of Legos.
The game’s flow is a bit different than other lego games in terms of how you progress through the story. In other lego games you would be shown a cut scene, play through a level, watch another cutscene and be dumped into the hub or continue directly into the next level. In Lego harry potter, the flow of the story and levels feels much more natural. In between levels you explore Hogwarts collecting items and learning new spells. The main hub is Diagon Alley in which you have level select, character purchases, etc. and is never forced upon you in the gameplay. Each mission flows naturally into the next with various mini quests and cutscenes in between.
