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: This was one of the very first games I played on GBA, it was amazing! The graphics were clear and crisp with many things to find out and do. Catching the quiditch is especially fun, once you get the hang of how to do it! However, finding all the cards turned out to be a bit of a problem. I still haven't found them all. You get to find chocolate frogs, then you recieve a card. Learning the spells was an excellent part of the game. I couldn't wait to learn the next one!
Excerpt: Although this game was quite entertaining it was not at all accurate to either the book or film, except of course for the characters. I appreciate that for entertainment value there has to be some variation as otherwise the player would know exactly what to expect, but it seemed to me that there was a lot missing, and a lot added. The game was also extremely dark in some parts, although this might be improved upon by the new game boy advance console.
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.

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: Hi, I have re-done this opinion, so please rate it (if you 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.
