Based on the last three Harry Potter books and final four films, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 takes players through Harry Potter’s heroic adventures in the Muggle and wizarding worlds. From Privet Drive in Little Whinging to Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade and Hogwarts – plus new locations including Grimmauld Place, the Ministry of Magic, and Godric’s Hollow – players will encounter new faces, new challenges and new magic, preparing them for the ultimate face-off against Lord Voldemort.
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 builds upon the magical gameplay, lessons and potion-making skills learned in LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 to equip gamers with the tools necessary to challenge a host of new foes and some familiar ones (including He Who Must Not Be Named). The upcoming title is action-packed from start to finish, including loads of new lessons, spells, and bonus content for hours of family friendly gaming.
My son Jordan is mad about LEGO, and rather likes Harry Potter too! So the combination of the two together is perfect for him!
Starting the game up, it was easy to navigate and get into game play. It is a platform game where you play as a LEGO character. You go straight into the game as one of two characters, which you can change between easily to use different skills. As you move along in the game it gives you explanations about how to use different tools, and how to get about.
The idea is that you navigate through the levels, collecting the coins as you go. You need to use different equipment you may find on your way, as well as other characters. Jordan found this really fun to play, it was easy enough that he didn’t get frustrated, but also wasn’t too easy that he got bored, it got his mind working about how to best go about completing tasks.
The detail that has gone into this game is amazing, right down to the background which are made out of LEGO!
This is a brilliant game that Harry Potter and LEGO fans will both love, and of course if they like both, this is bound to be a hit!
You can buy LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 from shops such as Amazon, Play.com and other retailers.
