The Boy Who Lived becomes The Boy Who Builds in Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7.
Everything you've enjoyed about both Harry Potter and the wonderful Lego series of games can be found here: the exploration, the intricate puzzles built into the very fabric of the world, and a chance to savour the world of Potter and friends just one more time. It may not be the best use of the brand, but there's still plenty to be had for existing fans.
I’m happy to see that the Lego Harry Potter series finally completed on iOS. However, I’m not sure why it took so long for this port to land on the platform. Sure, Years 5-7 looks good visually, but the switch to a virtual gamepad along with the issues mentioned above deter the game from being better. As it is, the Lego gameplay is intact, meaning that fans of the series should continue to enjoy it. However, you can do better if you’re simply looking for the next great action/platform game.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is a weird experience where the great intuitive controls of the predecessor have been replaced with unresponsive buttons. Furthermore the graphics don’t look that good on the iPad, and especially not on the New iPad. The game plays a bit better on the iPad if you can manage to hold it without too much strain, as the buttons get too small on the iPhone. What you do get however is a bargain version of a massive console game, and if you are a fan of Lego, Lego games or Harry Potter you will still get a lot of game for your bucks.
