The LEGO games now have more to do and collect. From only being able to collect red and gold bricks to characters and lastly mini-kits the games have somewhat come a long way since the PlayStation 2. The games now consist of collecting red and gold bricks, characters, mini-kits and lastly characters/random LEGO mini-figures in peril.
What I really enjoyed about the two games was the faithfulness to the books, Rita Skeeter turns into a beetle in the game and it was the little snippets like this that made me enjoy the game even more. I really enjoy games like the Harry Potter series that have remained true and faithful to its original source. Not to mention the Easter Eggs in the background and how the game is brimming with everything that J.K Rowling has come up with in her brilliant imaginative mind. Not to mention the dancing skeletons that didn’t last long in the LEGO videogame universe.
The simplicity of the cut-scenes were enjoyable also due to the characters at the time not having any dialogue provided by voice actors. The simplicity of the scenes made them more humorous and enjoyable. The other good fact about this instalment was Hogwarts was very much bigger which meant that there was more to explore in-and-around the castle grounds. The levels were also much bigger which meant there was more to do and collect.
I would highly recommend this game for any gamer out there, as it’s easy to get into and it’s targeted to a much wider audience of all ages.
