Is Lega Harry Potter the only decent HP game?

#1 Posted by RainVillain (706 posts) -

I've never played an HP game and I'm trying to find one that isn't terrible.

Frankly, all I want is Rockstar's Bully set in Hogwarts.. but since that doesn't exist, it seems like Lego is the best.. right?

The half blood prince wasn't a bad game per se. It had some ok mini games. 
Lego Harry is pretty decent though.

It might be childhood nostalgia, but because I loved the first few books when I was younger, I also liked the first two games. If I remember correctly, it was actually a bit open-worldy, as you could walk around the school and had classes to attend, where you learned new spells. Again, it's been a long time, so maybe (or probably) the gameplay was broken, and I just liked the recreation of Hogwarts.

I loved the first three games, but I was about ten at the time. They aren't very good.

I like the rpg ones on the GBC.

The first 3 games for PC were okay, and 2 and 3 on the PS2 were okay as well.

As said, the first 3 games are pretty good if you want to walk around hogwarts and stuff. It's a pretty neat recreation.

I actually really liked the Order of the Phoenix game, for some reason.

I've played the two GBC harry potter games and they surprised me that they weren't bad.  They are turn based RPGs with random battles that are pretty forgiving and the mechanics aren't bad.  Also the second one is the last game released on the GBC in the US and I got it cheap and new on Amazon a few months back to keep shrink wrapped as a collectors item.

I liked the first PC games but other than that the LEGO game's pretty darn good.

I really liked the first three.

I probably wouldn't think they were that great if I were to go back to them now, but I really enjoyed them when I was younger.

I remember a game based on the first book/movie on the GBA. It took up a lot of my time, so I guess it had to be some kind of enjoyable.

It's also possible I might of just been on..uh, a Potter high.

yeah, Chamber of Secrets ( nr 2 ) on the original xbox was great ( if nostalgia serves me right ). Or.. remembering not hating it atleast.

Lego HP is allright enough. But my nitpicky thing about all Lego games are those times when YOU don't remember what happend in the movies, but that is the thing that the game wants you to do. But you don't get any help from the game either.

Lego Indy 1, at the boss fight with that huge russian guy near the plane. I actually forgot that that guy dies because of the plane. So i tried to kick his ass for like 15 minutes, before he suddenly happend to come into contact with the planes engine.

But, Lego HP is fun enough, if you'r a fan
