In addition to the xBox 360 demo video we told you about two days ago, we now have a review of the game from Ray Willmott, which provides an overall assessment of the demo:

"Might, magic and majesty. That’s one way to describe Travellers Tales’ Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. The demo was launched on Xbox 360 on June 7th, giving players the chance to experiment with Wingardium Leviosa in Professor Flitwick’s Charms class and enter the depths of the Forbidden Forest for detention with Hagrid, where he, Ron, Hermione and Fang then have to save an endangered Harry. While the playtime is only a glimpse into the finished product, it is clear to see that the game is polished and has maintained TT’s sense of humour from previous Lego games. When Harry, Ron and Hermione enter Hagrid’s hut during a cut scene before they enter the Forest, they see Hagrid tending to a white unicorn, tucked up under his bed sheets with a thermometer in its mouth. However, don’t mistake this for TT cheapening the Harry Potter franchise with stupidity, as it’s clear that people with an understanding and passion for the source material worked on this game, and have kept the experience as authentic as possible. It maintains the same melodic soundtrack of the movies and recreates some of the scenes that fans of both the movies and books will be familiar with, while adding some light hearted humour.
If early indications are anything to go by, this is going to please Harry Potter fans no end, and is actually on track to becoming one of the best video gaming experiences of the Harry Potter franchise. We will find out one way or another in just a few short weeks when the full game is released."
We also have an article from GameSpot which goes into a little bit of detail of what playing the game is like:

"In your first year, you'll spend your time going to class to learn the basic spells needed to get by. You'll find yourself taking a potions class with Professor Snape, as well as an herbology class to learn the dos and don'ts when it comes to harmful plants. Each class gives you a brief exercise on how to use a particular spell so that once you've completed the task, you'll gain the new spell."


The LEGO Harry Potter Years 1 - 4 game will be available June 25th.

Tried to get this on the XBox but it’s only available to XBox Live subscribers or something. So unfair.
