Sinister Reviews #02: LEGO Harry Potter – Years 1-4

Genre: Third-Person Adventure, Brick-’em-Up

Release Date: June 2010
I was slightly apprehensive at first about delving into LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4‘s comfortable, warm wizard’s sleeve robe. My previous experience of the LEGO video game series had been the staggeringly-awesome LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, which still ranks as quite possibly the best Star Wars game there’s ever been (give or take a few BioWare and Dark Forces outings). However, it came with the ever-so- slightest twinge that it hit a sweet spot that was entirely unique to the novelty of combining the Star Wars saga with a bunch of kids’ toys, and that its sparkle couldn’t last forever. Still, along came the boy wizard in the form of a cheap pre-owned sale, and here we are; back building bricks and saving the world yet again.
