My kids are totally frustrated with the lack of a save system!

Summary: My kids really like this game , but it is ridiculous to make a game these days without a save system. Poor execution here. One child plays for a long time and closes the cover of the DS to hold their place in the game and the next sibling mistakenly turns the DS off resulting in lost games, tears and fights. Completely stupid system!
Summary: I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books, movies and games. I have enjoyed playing all the games made so far except for this one. I'm not sure how well it plays on other consoles besides the DS but it really sucks on this one. 1. It seems that the majority of the time you have to run from the Gryffindor common room all the way down 7 or 8 flights of stairs. This has to be done almost every time you begin a "mission." Its more running around than actual fun stuff.
Just as disappointing as this game on every other platform!

Excerpt: A handheld version of a game of a film of a book. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that the odds of this game being anything beyond mediocre are slim to say the least. As a big DS gamer and a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, I thought that in spite of this I'd better give the game a go. When I got this, I had already played the Order of the Phoenix on the Wii. Now, I don't think I've put a review up for that yet...
Excerpt: What Is It? Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DS is the Nintendo DS game to accompany the film (and book) of Harry Potters 5th year at Hogwarts. This will take you through different adventures and challenges that roughly follows the events from the book. The Story (Based On The Games View) You start out as Harry in Grimald Place (where Harry's godfather Sirius lives) and you have to find different characters and speak to them.
Conclusion: when i got my ds this was the 1st game i tried and now i wish i left it sealed!!! most of the time you are just walking round the school which isnt fun for example it will take you 15 minutes to actually get a misson started and it isnt worth the wait. the camera angles are terrible and that slows you down even more. as i love the books and films i found this a big let down.
