There are some things in this world that were just destined to be together. On their own, they’re good; together, they’re great. Take peanut butter & chocolate. Chocolate pie & fluffy meringue. Cake & frosting. Lego & video games.
I got hooked on the Lego Star Wars franchise when the first video game released several years ago. The quirky take Lego puts on the saga, the team play that’s encouraged, the problem solving, it’s all genius!
When I finally discovered the world of Harry Potter last year (I’m a late bloomer), I was ecstatic to get the Lego take on it as well. I’ve just started Years 1-4 and it’s just as fun and satisfying as I would’ve thought…with a caveat. The game processing is sluggish. I’ve not noticed it on other games with my platform of choice—PS3. This one, though, seems to take forever to transition between segments. Honestly, I’m getting a little sick of seeing the cauldron spin while it’s loading. Here’s hoping this flaw is improved on Years 5-7.
And just for fun, here are a couple of pictures from LEGOLAND California last December.
