FGTV Tests the 3DS and Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7

Family Gamer TV Geek Culture

This week on Family Gamer TV, with a little help from Warner, we equipped our families with Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 on the 3DS and Xbox 360 to see how they would get on. This was not only their first experience of the 3DS but also of this type of Lego game.

There is, perhaps, no more popular series of video games for families than the Lego adventure games. These combine some great franchises like Harry Potter, Batman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Pirates of the Caribbean with miniature Lego action and story telling.

Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 follows up the original Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 game and completes the story. On the 3DS it also offers some multi-player features in the form of a StreetPass mode where you get to battle passers by.
