Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4

August 8th, 2010 by Wii Game Reviews

Taking the template successfully used in previous LEGO games like Star Wars, Indian Jones and Batman, and then fine tuning it and applying it to JK Rowling’s rich fantasy universe, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is one the best family titles we’ve ever played. Based on the first four Harry Potter books and films, it lets you experience the young apprentice’s early years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, an ever evolving playground full to the brim with puzzles and secret locations.

As if Harry Potter’s adventures weren’t magical enough now you can experience his first four years at Hogwarts through the medium of Lego. Similar to the popular Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman games you can now control Harry and dozens of other famous characters.

Each character has their own specialities and abilities, from broomstick riding to a wide range of magic. The most important spell though, which nearly every character can cast, is Wingardium Leviosa which allows you to magically move Lego bricks and build them up into different objects like a wall or a set of stairs.

You’ll learn new spells and abilities as you go, mirroring Harry’s rise from muggle to master wizard, but the game’s a lot less about fighting than the earlier Lego games. Instead the focus is much more on exploration and puzzle-solving, with Hogwarts and the other levels filled with an almost endless supply of secrets to uncover and mysteries to solve.
