Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7…
I’ve done it! After nearly a year of having Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 I finally got all the achievements and completed the game to 100 percent. It was a bit trying to get back in the game after not having touched it for months, but in about 20 minutes it all came rushing back to me. At times I almost started over from nothing, but then I found out I was nearly done, so I just stuck with it until the end. There are something in it that confused me, such as the 200 gold bricks. I was short one and operating under the assumption that the old rules of the other game applied. In this instance, however, the Bonus Level can be completed as soon as all the spells are unlocked,without all the bricks and it is that level that gives you the final brick, that allows you to build a Hogwarts Castle replica in gold. Then nothing else, other than an achievement you can only get once. So it’s a sort of a blink and miss. I know, not so impressive.
Another thing that could have been made simpler is the Hogwarts Crest in the level titled “Magic is Might”. You have to play through the whole level at least once and the second time you must have Fang with you. As you near the end you must run like all hell and remember to keep to your left and jump at the exact time to get a Crest Piece; which is hidden behind a statue. If what’s chasing you catches up to you, you will need to start over. Such a pain if you ask me.
It’s not all bad though, I mean now they have ghosts telling you what you are missing in each area, however helpful that is, it’s also a distress since I found a spot known as the Wisley Garden where there is a Student in Peril yet he is nowhere to be found, but he is there according to the ghost. I suppose is one of many game glitches, but still the game can be conquered and all achievements can be gotten.
Other than those three cons against the game. It’s still enjoyable to play and try to figure out. The game still has humor and a certain level of difficulty but nothing to horrible as to make it unplayable. I look forward to the next installment by the Lego Franchise. I am sure it will be better than their work so far.
