I got an email about preordering Lego Harry Potter the other day. Didn't even know they were working on it. I'm stoked now. I've really enjoyed the Lego games I've played thus far. That would be both Star Wars games and Indiana Jones. I think that means Batman is the only one I haven't played. I'd be interested by my kids aren't.
Being a big fan of the Harry Potter stories, I was pretty excited when I saw that this game will be coming out. The ars review has me hopeful in my anticipation. It sounds like they may have fixed one of the biggest issues with the other games, the need to not get too far apart when playing co-op.
Game play aside, I'm betting the cut scenes alone will be worth it, just like in the other games.
I will most likely let the kids use some of their recently acquired Christmas and birthday money to buy it for the wii.
