Great fun, but blink and you'll miss it...

Summary: On the upside, this is great fun, the levels aren't too challenging but require a certain element of skill, the grounds are very explorable and the side quests and items to collect will keep you very much entertained. On the downside, the similarities to the book or film are tangeable, the graphics aren't groundbreaking (particularly now) and it is much, much too short.
Summary: I didn't have high hopes for this game - in my experience, games based on films are usually dreadful but i actually found this quite fun! The graphics are good and the gameplay (although not hard) kept me entertained! It is however, really short and takes hardly any time at all to complete. This aside, the only thing which really annoyed me where the repeated phrases from the people you talk to....next time try getting a few more voice overs!
Summary: Well, I was put off this title by the decidedly iffy reviews; but I bought it in the end anyway! And, suprisingly, this game is actually GOOD! Yes, that's right, it is a good game. Best for young 'uns I would think, tho'. Saves aren't too frequent / too sparse, gameplay challenges graduate up in difficulty quite evenly, voices are authentic. Controls are intuitive & become second nature quickly.
Summary: The first Harry potter games were a slight disapointment, but still I enjoyed it. As soon as I saw Harry Potter 2 for gamecube I instantly preordeared it. I couldn't wait for it to come. I few weeks before it arrived I also bought Super Mario Sunshine. An excellent game worth 5 stars but I think the young wizard has nearly lived up to Mario and Princess peach.
Summary: Personaly, I never buy a movie liscence game without first reading several great reviews. This is because developers are liable to bung any old crud on a disk and still sell it by the thousands, simply because the film was so succesful (until, of course, everyone finds out how bad the game is). However, this game could just be an exception. Of course, it is very much a matter of taste.
