Lego Harry Potter Episodes 1-4 PSP Review.

If you haven't ever played a Lego game you might find this game a little different than the console games that would be on Wii or PS3. But, aside from that it is still a solid looking game with pretty decent game play and playability. First and foremost, I want to say that if you don't like previous Lego games then you will certainly not like this one on PSP. So if you are a fan; you will like this game.

So judging from the title "Lego Harry Potter 1-4" it should be noted that this game covers stories from the series in the first four books. I have read them all :). You will be playing through different adventures like the Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire.

The game does rely on a linear game format so you can't just jump into the Goblet of Fire. There is a storyline which you will have to follow, there is also not going to be a ton of cut scenes or a ton of voice overs, but that is nothing different that any other Lego game out there.

The game play does seem to be a little different than other Lego games, but you will get your fair share of quest, combats, and of course puzzle solving. Throughout the game you will collect Lego bits, which are called studs, you will also be able to collect until you can't collect anymore.

The camera angle will be from the top looking down. You will be able to take Harry and friends on an assortment of adventures. The controls are pretty straight forward and you will be able to control them by using the analog nub or the directional pad, There is a single action button which will allow you to cast spells. You will learn a number of different spells in which you will have to do in a sequence to use it, I didn't find it to be that hard though. Also, if you want to change between your characters you can do so easily in the game.

As far as the storyline goes, it does seem to follow the books for the most part, but I am sure there are a couple errors in there. You will die from time to time, but since it is geared for the youth it is not that frustrating and you will be able to try again and again.

You do have the option to play levels over and over again. If you really want to collect everything you will find yourself doing it over and over again. But, there are parts that actually require that you go back and complete a certain task. I found it to be quite enjoyable and discovered stuff I didn't even see the first time.

I would recommend this game to anyone and you will get about 20 hours of solid gameplay out of it. I have gotten more than that out of it though, and plan on getting lots more! Past Lego fans will certainly eat this game up as it is a lot of fun.
