New Trailer for LEGO Harry Potter Video Game, Reviews Coming OnlineVideo Games
WB and TT Games let us know that a new trailer has been released online for the LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1 -4 video game. This launch trailer, which contains looks at all four years of the game, can be found right here in our Video Galleries.
Unlike Star Wars, Batman or Indiana Jones, Harry's adventures don't take him around the world, across a city or to other planets. Pretty much everything that happens to him happens in Hogwarts. Rather than allow this restriction to hold things back, TT Games has instead turned it to the game's advantage.
You no longer retreat to a hub area and dip into key set-pieces one by one. Instead, Hogwarts is a gigantic, continuous gameplay area full of living detail. When it's Christmas in the story, everyone wears Santa hats. When the Dementors arrive, looking for Sirius Black, students huddle in corners, terrified. When Gilderoy Lockhart arrives at the school, gaggles of cooing girls follow him around. It's lovely and hilarious.
