Summary: Both me and my partner are retro gamers and have no want or need for the "collectors" value.. I brought this with the intention of playing it! Game works perfectly... Came well packaged and arrived in good time! Nothing like a good throwback!
Summary: Fun, but can be repetitive. Quite challenging in places. Good value. Doesn't really follow the story of the Harry Potter book or film. I did enjoy the game because it's the kind of puzzle adventure game that I like. My brother, who prefers a more action packed game, found it boring and frustrating. It's a matter of opinion. The 'retro' graphics were fun.
Summary: Whilst having a quiet browse of amazon the other day, this item appeared on my suggested buys list. Having already played it when it was first released a good few years ago I couldn't resist trying again, particularly at that bargain price. The game is amazingly original, and a big leap forwards both in graphics and technical skills from most other gameboy advanced games I've played.
Summary: The game is visually really good, with characters looking noticeably alike their realities, and it's also great that you can wander up to any student when roaming the grounds and they have a comment. However, I have barely progressed in the game. This is because there is one challenge where you have to get to Hagrid's Hut in order to fulfil one of Snape's challenges. I can get past the trolls etc, but there is one final bush to get past before reaching the Hut.
Summary: When I ordered this game from Amazon, I thought it was going to be an okay average games. Too wrong I was: you begin the came by attending your first defence against the dark arts lesson and then once your spell is learnt you do a tricky challenge. Over 10 amazing challenges requiring alot of brainpower. Includes everything a gameboy game requires: skill, patience and determination. It took me a month to get past the prefects but well worth the wait!
Excerpt: "...speech in the game when Harry casts his spells, eg. Flippendo, etc. In the game whilst walking around, you must avoid the prefects at night or you have to restart the level, a bit of a drag! lol. Meet Ron and Hadgrid etc. they help you along the way. It's quite a challenging game but you know you will complete each level eventually, once you have done the in game puzzles. Particularly the graphics were excellent, as was the sound. I would ...
Excerpt: "...When I first played on Harry Potter on the GBA I was overwelmed by the enormous variety of places to explore and magical items to search for, along with the extremely realistic graphics. SETTING The game is set in Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The school itself is huge with a large number of classrooms to visit and secret passageways to explore. Also there is a large explorable area outside of the school in which lives deadly gnomes ...

Summary: I wasn't expticing to much when I read some reviews for harry potter but I fancied it. Now I have got it I have found it amazing. It never gets boring it's always a puzzle or a race against time. you won't go rong with Harry potter on the G.B.A.
Excerpt: "...haven’t already) ~ My History with Harry ~ At first I hated anything to do with Harry potter. I hated him, his books, J.K Rowling, His merchandise and other stuff. I thought that the books were childish and stupid. I'd always hated Sci-Fi stuff and I especially hated children’s books about witchcraft. They were always stupid like 'the worst witch' etc. (for those of you who don't know about the worst witch, I shall tell you how bad it was in ...
