Lego Harry Potter: Years 57 Gameplay

Lego Harry Potter's gameplay is similar to that of most previous Lego games, with an emphasis on collecting and exploring. Casting spells is an integral part of the gameplay, with a wide range of spells available for unlocking as the player progresses. As there are many spells available in the game, the player can use the spell wheel to select the spell. Potion-making is another integral feature; potions can help the player complete levels or, if created incorrectly, have adverse side effects such as turning the player into a frog. The game covers a wide range of characters, as well as locations, of the last three books and four films. The game employs the two player split-screen technique introduced in Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues. The online play feature that appeared in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is absent from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7.

The game received generally positive reviews.

IGN gave Lego Harry Potter: Years 57 an 8 out of 10. They praised its funny cutscenes, the excellent use of the film's music tracks, how much there is to do after the main adventure is cleared, and that the game is simple enough for anyone to pick up and play.
