Lego Harry Potter is probably one of those games I remember fondly and so why not look back at this game but do I still have the love for the likes of this?
Well very simply put of course I do
So onto all things Lego.
Like most PC titles most have slowly made their way onto steam and some also have made it onto GOG. The GOG version is pretty expensive sitting at £14.00 for both years 1-4 and 5-7.
But it can be grabbed off steam for £10.00 (when it’s not on sale) and if you are an Internet hunter you can find people will sell you a download key for this even cheaper than that for both games.
Gameplay & Graphics
Even if you have completed both years in the past like I have on the PS3 it’s not too difficult to adapt to the pc version of the game. There are 4 different save slots available so more than one game can be saved here.
The only graphics glitch I could find the original screen tear issue which can be fixed in the graphics settings. Apart from that it’s pretty good from there on.
The only gripe I have with the gameplay is the keyboard layout. Lego: Harry Potter does not have the greatest keymapping. I found myself quickly hooking up my Xbox One controller as its just so much easier.
To be honest it’s so much easier with a controller. Despite the niggles as I say this game is still highly enjoyable. The graphics are really colourful and very sharp. Of course there is loads of the charm you would expect from a Lego endorsed product.
Install time and space needed
Lego Harry Potter is now around 8 years old. Lego: Harry Potter takes a pretty respectable 5.6GB for both years 1-4 and 1-7. You need around 11GB in total to install both games to a Hard Drive.
