Amazon.com Review

Combining one of childhood's most enduring toys with the current craze for Harry Potter, this game has a capacity for entertaining young players that is almost magical. LEGO Creator: Harry Potter lets you use standard LEGO blocks to construct a world for Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Then you get to turn them loose in it! Whether setting up a postal route for Harry's owl, practicing spells with the kids of Hogwarts, or using the workshop to configure the LEGO buildings and structures, players will find this game thoroughly absorbing.

LEGO Creator: Harry Potter is atypical of children's programs, which usually run players through a fixed set of activities or educational challenges. Instead, game designers have made a serious effort to leave things wide open and flexible, sticking close to the reason why kids enjoy LEGO in the first place. Players can place LEGO units--animals, characters, blocks, doors, chests--around the landscape of Hogwarts. But this is no mere simulation of a real-life play experience--this LEGO world is animated! With a single mouse click, players bring their creations to life. Place a LEGO snake onscreen in this game, and it will promptly slither for cover. Likewise, the Harry Potter characters--who are incredibly charming when rendered as standard LEGO people--will move around the environment created for them, even interacting when they come together!

While the complexity of this package makes it tougher to master than many games, a series of tutorials disguised as challenges can smooth out the learning curve. Users explore the school, build LEGO trains, and find lost animals, and as they do, they learn the lay of the land. The challenges have another motivator built in: without them, you can't cast all the magical spells otherwise available to Harry and the others.

LEGO Creator: Harry Potter frees you to build a stage and place upon it the well-known characters from J.K. Rowling's novels. What happens next is limited only by your imagination. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not for ADD kids
Important to read the title of this software before you buy. This is a design or creator software. The word 'game' is not in the tilte, ..., doesn't mean that it will do everything $500.00 worth of legos will. Although, Lego (durable, expesive, children, and well known), Harry Potter (exciting, British, pagan, children, and well known), and Electronic Arts (software distributor, low cost, lacking patches / support, and well known) are well known, you should concern yourself with the audience before you buy. It is rated for everyone. This means no one will die, explode, or present shocking or contraversial graphics. It is a good product. It runs on my XP system, so I'm impressed. It says it comes with awards, but I didn't see them. This is not a first person shooter game. ... The visuals are a little hard to master. But if you pay attention, you can control the movement of the characters and zoom around like anyone else. Building is more difficult, yes. They could have done a better job developing and play testing the product, ... so you win some and lose some. Is it the best thing on the face of the planet, no. Could they have put some more time into this, oh yes. But for what you pay for, you cannot find this anywhere else.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Kindergartner Mom
The software was a gift for my son. He was so excited about it given that it is Harry Potter and Legos. He was not able to do anything in the software except type his name. When my husband and I tried to use it with him we had similar difficulty. We have not been able to advance from the initial screens. What a disappointment. Lego usually represents Quality to me. Perhaps they should have just stayed in the Block business.

1-0 out of 5 stars HIDEOUS GAME for a Great Theme
This product has two solid names behind it -- Lego and Harry Potter, and it SHOULD be a GREAT game.
In fact, this is a game released on schedule, but before being finished. Its controls are contra-intuitive, clumsy, and v-e-r-y s-l-o-w. It locks up and freezes, some times coming back and executing your mouse click up to a minute after you've thought it didn't take, and have moved on. When it's running, it's sensitve and twitchy. Those who have said the controls are bad or frustrating are being quite kind. It takes hours to get the simplest things set up.

Then, when you're finished, you can't actually DO much with your creations.

Lego has a variety of software titles and should include good products; perhaps the second title, "LEGO Creator: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" will be usable and fun.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Hard
Ok I made a person now what? I read the manual and that made it more complicated. It takes an hour to finish building a walkway. You need to be VERY paitent to play this game. I bought it and it was horrible.I hated it! So PLEASE listen and save your money! I can think of at least 20 other things to buy with the money I paid for it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea......but too complex.
I love the Harry Potter Series when i saw Harry Potter And The Sorcors's Stone (the PC game) i bought it and loved it when i saw this game i got it but the contents of the game was disappointing. The Lego people can't do anything but bump in to stuff and annoy the stuffing out of you. This game seems like it would be easier for adults,but i'm not sure i do know this though,this game is WAY to hard so for ages 13 and up anyone younger would surly die of being bored. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A good program, but could be better
I've been a Lego fan for as long as I can remember, but no matter how many Legos I had it was never enough to satisfy all my creative urges, so the idea of a computer program with unlimited Legos got me very excited. And it's almost as good as I hoped.

I've had quite a few issues with it, though. The controls aren't the best, but I got used to them. The biggest problem I have is the same one I had with my real Legos--my imagination is too big for the game to handle! The "play area" is large enough to satisfy me (although the ceiling could be higher), but once I had built a hotel, and a restaurant, and a video store, and was working on a bike shop, the game crashed! If I wanted to build anything with major detail, the game would crash after a while because there were too many pieces involved. So as long as you can handle only building one thing at a time it'll be doable, but don't try any serious city-building.

4-0 out of 5 stars Time and patience yield fun
I received Lego Creator as a gift. The program at first was overwhelming, but after using the tutorial things became much clearer.

The use of the program becomes tedious, the camera is difficult to master at first but you can soon become accustomed to how it works. While you can't do everything in this program that you can do in reality, there's a lot more that you can do to expand yoru creativity and enjoyment with this program. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

At first acquaintance, the basic "gaming environment" wherein LEGOCreator's players build their virtual bikes, choppers, cranes, and so on,and direct their dinky, cutesy, usually prebuilt minifigures, seems a little bitodd and unsettling--even bleak. Bleak enough to confirm the prejudices ofparents and others who would consider computerized LEGO a travesty of thehands-on, real-world ethos of the original construction game.

However, after a while, the cleverness of this CD-ROM comes to the fore. In thevirtual LEGO Creator world you don't just build things and then take them apart;you can make them fly at the touch of a button, give them apposite or ludicroussounds, change their color with a single mouse click--even blow them up(flamboyantly) using the special DESTRUCTA bricks.

You're then able to pilot your figures and vehicles through the very world youhave created, guided by an integral LEGO Creator Wizard--who is a bit like apermanently untiring, megabrainy parent. All in all, then, a rather fine andintelligent toy, albeit not one for the very young, or very active, or veryeasily dismayed. --Sean Thomas ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not XP compliant
This software will NOT work on XP operating system in any compatibility mode. There is no patch anywhere I could find.

1-0 out of 5 stars "Complex", "NOT User-Friendly", and "A Real Drag"
This software takes forever to load and once loaded it is painful to use. My son and I, both thought the program is overly complex and not intuitive. Time passed quickly while trying to build simple structures, which made the user loose interest and become bored. It also appeared to limit the users imagination & creativity that you typically have when using the real blocks. It definitely did not meet our expectations.

3-0 out of 5 stars Complex, Slow, and Realistic
This is good for people who like to build Legos, but don't have the pieces, but has some significant downsides. The creation inevitably takes long and is fairly complex. It's difficult to get a good view of your creations with the tools provided. It's slow and choppy for outdated computers (mine's 200 megahertz). On the plus side, this is realistic (compared to actually making a lego creation) and has some neat fun things (like dynamite). Ultimately, I only recommend this for people who like to build and have a computer with at least 500 megahertz.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun game for kids, not really THAT complicated
We just got this CD-ROM, and my 5 year old son LOVES it! We've had it for 4 days, and already he has mastered it. He only plays for about 45 min - 1 hr a day. I've not tinkered with it much, but my 5 yr. old seems to really know his way around it. I did read some of the other reviews, and while the game is obviously on a computer screen and not "real life", it is easy enough for my 5 yr. old to navigate after only a short time. Maybe us adults are too logical, and this is one of those games that children do better at than we do! Anyway, I would recommend this game - and did tonight to a mom for her son!

1-0 out of 5 stars not worth it
i got this game a while ago and i rarley play it anymore. this game doesent deserve half a star. there are no boats or planes, only helicopters. the only good part was playing. it's slow and the graphics and sound are bad for a PC game. Ther are very few good parts to this game, it is only worth about 7 dollars. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GET IT.
This game is the best Lego game I have played yet (and I've played a lot of them), and, in my opinion, one of the best PC games ever. If you're wondering which Lego racing game to get, buy this one. It's better than Lego Racers 2. When I received this game, I could never come away from the computer. That is, until I got sick from it. One great thing about it is the wonderful graphics. They set this game apart from even LR2!

Your big mission is this: to outrace Rocket Racer (the fastest racer in the galaxy) and Veronica Voltage (RR's friend who owns a record-breaking car). This is easier said than done.

Starting out, you have 3 choices: build a new racer (and his car), play in a 'Time Trial' (which I will talk about later), or try out one of the first four races (in 'Single Race' mode). In each one, you will have 6 racers to deal with. Once you think you're ready, you can go through all four of those races in a 'Circuit Race'. At the end of a given race, you receive a certain amount of points, depending on what place you got. At the end of the Circuit Race each racer's points are added up. If you are in the top three, you unlock the next four races. If you get 1st in the Circuit Race, you unlock a car set. It gives you more pieces to build with while making a racer.

There are four sets of four races, plus one big race, the showdown. It adds up to 17 great racetracks in all. And, unlike Lego Racers 2, each race is very different. You will go through tropical beaches, medieval castles, evil palaces, weird planets, and pirate territory. Also, each race has a shortcut hidden in a certain place on the track.

To make racing even more exciting, LEGO has laid power-ups on the track for you to pick up. They'll give you the ability to: shoot missiles, grappling hooks, and laser beams at your opponents; lay traps for them with explosives, oil, and 'mind traps'; protect yourself with four levels of laser shielding; or catch up with single, double, and triple turbo jets as well as a time warp (the best power-up of all).

This game also has a great multiplayer mode. Race against a family member or a friend and it'll split the screen in half. But this mode is only available when you own a keyboard and a game controller, joystick, or steering wheel.

Once you've won each of the Circuit Races and beaten Rocket Racer himself, there is still Veronica Voltage to beat. You might think, 'I've beaten RR, it couldn't be too hard to beat VV.' But you're wrong. You need to beat her on every track except for the one in Rocket Racer's world. No matter how much you practice, you can never seem to win. Here's an important tip: study exactly how she (VV) races on each track and copy her. One of those days you'll cross the finish line before she does.

After that, you've won. You'll probably feel like throwing a party with all your friends! This game is incredible. It's well worth the money. GET IT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lego Racers Is A Great Game
Steering wheel recommended for maximum fun. Any wheel will do. At first it seems hard, but with just a little practice, you'll be challengine the best the game has to offer. Some circuits are extreemly difficult to defeat, but none are impossible. What a ride!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game for a PC
This is a great game. It has four different racing modes, Circuit Race, Single Race, Versus Race(and that would make one of the few PC games that has multiplayer), and Time Trial.
This game also gives you the ability to create your own cars by clicking on the Build button in the main menu. Every time you get First in a Circuit Race you get the Champion's Car Set, and that lets you use all the pieces from his car to make your own.
After you have beaten every track, you try and beat Vernica Voltage in the time trial. All along the way you can pickup power ups to help you, from giving you a boost to giving you a weapon. This is just an overall good Game. ... Read more
