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...
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.
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.
Summary: Sadly this is a very boring game and certainly not worth the money. My daughter (10) and I have a number of gripes, the main ones being: 1. The game consists mostly of moving your character through corridors and scenes in order to find other characters, which is so dull!

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.
Summary: This is the first Harry Potter game I've played. I thought the film was the best so far and it's a very good book. This game starts quite well and I found it interesting to use the stylus to cast spells, but it quickly got very repetitive.
Summary: I was looking forward to playing this game, after just finishing The Goblet of Fire, which was not brilliant but took me over a week to finish and had some difficult tasks especially towards the end, but this took me one day to finish and was boring to the extreme.
Summary: I bought the Goblet of Fire DS game a while ago and loved it, so thought I would get the Order of the Phoenix game for more of the same. How wrong I was! It takes some effort to make a Harry Potter game tedious, as there is so much scope for exploring amazing settings, casting spells, battling...
