A game by fans for fans: MuggleNet reviews “LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7”

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 was released roughly two weeks ago on all major gaming consoles. It was timed perfectly with Deathly Hallows – Part 2 on DVD and Blu-ray.

MuggleNet received a copy of the game for review and you can now read our report on the highly-anticipated sequel to LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4.

“The crew over at TT Games bring a touch to the Harry Potter series that previously hasn’t been seen on gaming consoles. While Electronic Arts has created a corporate carbon copy of the movie adaptations, it is evident that you have true Potter fans behind-the-scenes of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Yes, the LEGO games follow the movie storyline closely, but they also pull things from the books that fans of the series can and will appreciate.”

The review gives you a general rundown of the game, a detailed look at Year 5 and what you can expect over the final two years of the series.

This is a game by fans for fans. So, if you’re thinking of giving or asking for a Potter-related gift for the holiday season, this one should be at the top of your list!
