Several new LEGO Games are now available in Europe. One of the ones getting the most buzz is the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Game (£24.99 — around $33 US) but there are three more games that look equally fun and haven’t gotten nearly enough notice. If you are interested in seeing an in-depth review of the Harry Potter Hogwarts game you can read it on Eurobricks.
The Orient Bazaar looks particularly interesting both for gameplay and as an excellent parts pack. The Belville perfume bottles have only been available in a handful of sets and only in three different colors. The last time it was available at all was in the 2007 Hogwarts Castle
Then there are the corner slopes, the 2×2 gold round tiles, and the 2×2 brown tiles with one knob. All very desirable parts. It retails for £17.99 which will most likely go for $25 in the US.
Launch satellites deep into space to seize these valuable cosmic rocks and sabotage your opponents lunar mission with laser blasts in the new LEGO Games Meteor Strike!
The classic space tiles and the dark red and blue elements make this one to look out for though. Also £17.99 — $24 US.
Atlantis Treasure looks fun and interesting.
I like the tiny micro subs that are the game pieces and I see lots of potential from the fun tiles included with this one. The long dark blue plates are also a definite selling point to me. The price is £19.99 — probably $30 US.
On a related note, for those of you in the States, there is a LEGO Games Truck Tour going on right now through September 6th. The weekend of August 14th at LEGOLAND California and the Chicago LEGO Discovery Center they are also having a LEGO Games Weekend
With both the prior wave yet to be released here in the States and this one to look forward to, I can see lots of LEGO games in my future. :)
