So Hard and Frustrating. Waste of Money Because it's unplayable for an average kid.

I had this as a kid and it was incredibly hard. I had the Nintendo ds version so it might be a bit different from Xbox or ps4 but generally I know that it's going to be the same. Couldn't get past the first level. I remember learning that tons of other kids could not finish Lego Harry Potter. I found this recently and gave it to my little brother. He is way more of a 'gamer' than me and skilled with fast reflexes. He hated it and couldn't do it. Yah, it's a Lego game, you think it is for little kids, right? Wrong, Lego games may be less scary than video games for an older audience, but lego games are damn hard. I also had lego avengers and only got two levels in before getting utterly stuck. This game might frustrate your Harry Potter loving kids and hurt their confidence. There is nothing inappropriate abput this game, but it is unnecessarily difficult and not a high quality game.
