Harry Potter’s innocent days are over. The boarding school antics have trickled to a halt, classrooms have gone silent, and even Quidditch matches–once the mark of happier times–have fallen by the wayside. In their place, a much darker picture has taken shape, marked by isolation, unpredictability, and the ever-increasing fear of death. As far as stories go, it’s not exactly a walk in the park, but it’s nothing that a good Lego sense of humor can’t handle. Like its predecessor, Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 excels at finding the true heart of the story it is trying to tell, layering this otherwise bleak premise with its own particular brand of cheekiness without sacrificing the essence of J.K. Rowling’s world.
