A Bit of a Let Down
I am a huge fan of the Lego games and have played every one but this one is my least favourite by far. Sure, it looks fantastic and the characters are great but the actual game is seriously flawed. I have had to re-do about four levels so far because characters I need to defeat haven't appeared, I've gotten wedged/ disappeared into scenery etc and I'm only on the second part.
There are also a few levels where there are about five characters all following you around the level which grows extremely irritating when they start to get in your way. I found myself in the second level cheering on a crocodile every time it ate one of my crew mates just so I had one less character in my way.
Overall I think if you are a Lego game fan like myself then you'll probably buy this game regardless but I definitely would not recommend it to a serious gamer because the flaws will drive you insane. Let's hope the Lego Game Programmers get their act together before Lego Harry Potter 2 is released!!
