    Somewhere between a 4 and a 5!

    This game is an absolute blast to play! I originally played this on the Nintendo DS, and remember some parts of it being infuriating. I am here to tell you that this is a completely different game! Fans of the books AND movies will appreciate this, even folks that think that they've outgrown the series. While playing this, I had such joy for much of it, and was happy to share that joy with others while streaming on Twitch! There are only a few things, thus far, that keep me from giving it a 5 (though MAN its so close!) The game crashed the first time I played it, but that has NOT happened again since, so i'm writing it off as a fluke. The other part that can be kinda infuriating is trying to trigger the spell that you want on the item that you want every time. SO MANY SPELLS/ACTIONS require you to use the same button, and although you think that you're casting "Wingardium Leviosa" on a certain object, another one responds OR something else happens entirely (or, you're trying to use the Triangle button to use one of the vehicles and you end up trading characters- which is ALSO what the triangle button does). For the most part, though, its not THAT hard to strugglebus through those difficulties. The gameplay is refreshingly easy most of the time, so its fun just to sit back, relax and explore Hogwarts again and again. The game has high replayability for me, as a completionist, once I finish the game and unlock all of the spells/enchantments/powers that each character has to offer, I can then replay the whole game and get all of the extras I couldn't get the first time. SO Fun, delightful and refreshing!

    I love that this was a dual collection as it gives me the opportunity to play both. I also like the older LEGO titles that were a little more user friendly as far as what could be manipulated and where to go. My husband and I enjoy playing this co-op and each having a role to play insomuch as we each see what our character needs to do and we do it (or point out to the other - theres your color!! do somethingto it!). It is a much more relaxed fun game to play while sipping a glass of wine :) I would recommend to all ages as the world is also superbly done and instantly recognizable!

    For all Harry Potter fans, I think this is the best that any Harry Potter game gets. There were some EA Harry Potter games before that were based realistically, but they were kind of pathetic excuses. This game is far more faithful to the books/movies, and despite lack of voice acting, it has a lot of charm. Fans of the series will love the ability to plop into the LEGO-ized Harry Potter world and just play through the story seeing it unfold before you. It's been awhile since I revisited the series, but this was a nice way to step back into it.

    This is a great game for those who love Harry Potter and Lego or just one of the two. It has a lot of things to keep you playing even after you've beaten the game. I enjoy going back and playing levels as different characters. It takes the darker side of Harry Potter and makes it to more of a light grey. I love that if you don't complete 1-4 it doesn't hinder your ability to enjoy 5-7. You can see how they learned from some of the clunkier mechanics in 1-4 and streamlined them in 5-7. As an adult, I had just as much fun playing as my younger cousins.

    The LEGO video games are all very dear to me. Harry Potter, in particular, holds a place in my heart, because it allows me to relieve my time as a fan of the franchise while I play an incredible game. When I bought this remastered version I shared it with my children, and they immediately took it over and played it all over again. They didn't even wait for me to join. I couldn't recommend it more. I just hope they do the same for LEGO Star Wars.

    Fun, but not as good as some other lego games.

    I've played through a little more than half of this game so far, and overall I do enjoy it. My only complaint is that the missions seem a big short/too easy and cut scenes can't be skipped. Added to that the characters don't have any actual dialogue in the cut scenes, they just make weird groaning noises. This may be due to licensing rights or something along those lines, but after playing Lego Jurassic World it just leaves a little bit to be desired. Still fun, just not as good as other lego games.

    My grandson is 8 years old and has just begun to read the harry Potter books and watch the Harry Potter movies. He has a PS4 system which he enjoys. It is hard to find appropriate games for young boys (no violence or inappropriate language). However these games clearly met that criteria and he has enjoyed playing them very much. It is a good gift for a young boy, especially one who likes Harry Potter.

    Legos who can go wrong. A match up like this harry potter and lego go together very well. it is a blast to play and very funny at times. wile it dose not give you a new potter and friends story it fallows and show you the books story in a whole new and intractive way. you will not get voice acting sadly. well worth the buy in my mind. 8.5/10

    I played both of these games when they were release individually years ago. Taking both of these older titles and converging them into a single title that plays on the PS4 is something I am glad to see they will be doing for the Xbox One soon! The short story is that, if you like the Harry Potter universe and Lego games, this a must-own title for your PS4.

    I've never seen the movies nor read the books. I really have no desire to, but I love the LEGO games and this was a great deal so I picked it up to play with the wife. I'm really enjoying it thus far. Not really sure what's going on in parts because it's the old-school LEGO game style where the characters don't speak, but I'm enjoying the gameplay. Definitely worth a playthrough. Tons of content!

    Not LEGO's best effort, but still Fun

    My kids and I have played several LEGO games and this is probably our least favorite. Even with that said, it was still fun. Levels are more complicated than a lot of the other LEGO games (Dimensions, Batman, MARVEL Super Heroes). My kids (ages 4 and 7) needed my help more on this one than the others. As a fan of the Harry Potter series though, this was still a fun experience.

    I love this game. My husband isn't a Harry Potter fan but he loves this game. It's good for all ages. The story is slightly different from the movies and there is a lot of humor sprinkled throughout. You get to play different characters who have access to different spells.

    Amazing game, but co-op can be disorienting

    My boyfriend and I love playing all of the Lego games together. Once we saw that the Lego Harry Potter collection was coming out for PS4, we knew we had to get it. We're currently playing it and having a great time, however, there's no option to turn the rotating split-screen off. It's disorienting and makes us a bit sick. All of the last few Lego games had that option, so why not this one?

    OKAY HEAR ME OUT, THIS GAME IS SO COOL. I've played it before years ago with my cousin on his PS3 and loved it. When I found out that this released in a collectors edition I knew I just had to get it for myself. It's so fun and humorous and almost exactly like the movies! Great game for anyone. Lego's are amazing.

    This is as good as any of the other Lego games that are out there. My son loves them all. He spent hours on this game and then the game glitched out and now it is telling us that the saved game is corrupt and we have to delete it. That is multiple hours wasted in my opinion. I am not sure that I would recommend this.

    My boyfriend loves playing on his ps4 and he wanted me to play with him so we got an easier game that I would enjoy playing with him that’s not very complicated. You have to figure a lot by yourself but it’s really fun! You can go back in the story once you collected specific characters so it lasts a while

    If you’re familiar with the LEGO game series, you know what to expect: fun, but occasionally frustrating, especially when your companion character gets in your way or knocks you into the abyss costing you studs. Seems to follow the storyline of the books/movies, but I’m not a HP fan, just a LEGO game series aficionado.

    This game is really good! If you haven't played the Lego Harry Potter games in the past. This would be the collection to get since you get both of them together. Plus, both games are in HD so even in the darkest of areas. You can see much better than the previous versions. Still fun and enjoyable to play the second time around!

    Lego Harry Potter remake for PS4.

    I am a huge Lego games fan and have the PS3 version and I love the remake. It's so much easier to maneuver and move. I've gotten so used to the new games being at a faster pace that when I go back to PS3 games they seem so slow and clunky. That's why I always get the PS4 remakes. Much faster and smoother gameplay.

    I bought this game for my 4yr old grandson thinking it was going to be like Lego Batman or Lego Indiana Jones but it turned out to be a little more difficult for him to control. He's pretty much getting the hang of it. Any who he likes his game. I like the game. It's Lego. :)
