Is It Any Good?

Between the two full games, extra downloadable content packs, and upgraded visuals for the PlayStation 4, there's a lot of bang for the buck here. Especially for fans of Harry Potter books and movies, this bundled collection will appeal to casual players and hard-core gamers alike, for its charming presentation, engaging gameplay with high replayability, and exhaustive lineup of familiar and not-so-familiar characters from all the books and movies. But if you've already played one or both games on an older console, you may not need to pick up this disc.

Along with the story mode, it's great to be able to free-play any level you complete, at any time. Plus, with purchases made in Diagon Alley, whatever you've acquired can be used in the main solo campaign, including disguises, studs collected by ghosts who dropped them, and more. These old games look great on the PS4, but it's too bad Warner Bros. couldn't offer voice acting over the years -- whether it was for the original cast from the movies or soundalikes. But overall, Lego Harry Potter Collection is great for kids and kids at heart -- especially if they haven't played the originals.
