Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (360): COMPLETED!

Well, that was an anticlimax. The end of game sequence was a rather rubbish level with a virtually non-existent fight with Voldemort. At least other fights in the game required you to fling things at the baddie, or do a wand duel or something – in this you just wander round as other characters doing normal Lego things, and then it flicks back to Harry and Hairless and you just hammer A or X. You don’t even have to select the spell.

In fact, it was such a simple final level that I didn’t even realise it was the final level, being certain something more suitably epic was just around the corner. After all, Little Boy Scarface has just spent the entirety of his formative years building up to this point – you’d have thought some massive battle would ensue or something. But no. Hammer A, Win, Credits. Tch!

Not that it matters, of course. I didn’t play for the story (and none of it makes any sense to me anyway) – I played for the Lego and smashing things. Which I got right back on, going back and doing the first few levels in Free Play as well as wander round Hogwarts and Diagon Alley unlocking some more characters and red bricks. Now the real game begins!
