Previewing “LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7”: a game by “Potter” fans for “Potter” fans

After attending E3 2011 last week, has posted a preview of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 and it is overwhelmingly positive.

“Hogwarts is now a much more expansive place as you’re able to just wander around and attend lessons. You can even walk out the front door and visit other places in the Harry Potter universe, such as King’s Cross station.”

The game will be based on the films from Order of the Phoenix through Deathly Hallows – Part 2, with six levels to complete per film.

“Aside from the campaign levels, there will be plenty of other things to occupy players, with around 16 extra lessons to undertake in order to learn some extra stuff. There will also be plenty of side-missions and hidden tasks to get Gold Bricks.”

You also get the chance to play as the bad guys this time. For everything we have on LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, check out our Video Games section.
