This is part 2 of my LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 Review. If you haven't read part one click here . To pick up where we left off, we are going to go into the levels.
LEGO beautifully displays the levels in many ways. Below is the Battle of the Department of Mysteries scene.
In this game there is a duel format in which you tap certain parts of the screen to block and shoot spells. Spells are made more effective when you hold down on the screen. This is the scene when Draco and Harry face off in the bathroom.
As you can see, LEGO does a great job at capturing the story with cutscenes. Sometimes, there are levels that could be easily skipped over cutscenes and vice versa. Cutscenes for this game can be viewed here
This is an example of how LEGO doesn't use words but uses these types of things to tell the story instead of talking like some of the recent games.
Here is the spell wheel. You can change spells here unless it automatically does. Some of the spells are Reducto, Immobilus, Aguamenti, Wingardium Leviosa, Stupefy, Expecto Patronum, and many more
What I like:
*Variety of characters
What I don't like:
*Some unnecesarry levels
*Cutscenes that could be levels
It is worth it. It's not the same exact thing, but it's great.
