Summary: I haven't had any slow-downs or glitches so far playing this game on my laptop. Some people said they could not get it to work on their Windows 7 computer. But all computers are a little different and I took a gamble and it turned out working fine.
Summary: I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I bought it to see how it is. Quidditch was the only fun I had on this game. What I didn't like: The game lagged for a while. Hufflepuff is purple and not yellow. It doesn't have most of the story plot (people petrified, no writing on the walls, etc). Not much games or time lapses. Not much is in the Chamber of Secrets (not like the book/movie). Polyjuice potion isn't like the book/movie.
Summary: I don't know what it is about this game, but ever since we bought it ten years ago i've been going back to it again and again and the fun hasn't worn off yet. It's not based entirely off of the movie like the later ones so there is lots of room for originality. You have to go through obstacles to learn new spells, collect beans in order to trade with students for Wiggenweld potion ingredients and Quidditch equipment, and search for collectable wizard cards in order to...
Summary: My little brother says "Axel, this game is for 8-year-olds" and I respond "Hush, lil' bro. I'm having MAGICK!". This game charms with awesome adventure/action first-person spell-casting, it's absolutely engrossing and magical. Explore Hogwarts in this engaging game of wizardry and fantasy beyond your daily-living dreams. Also this game provides great escapism.
Summary: Although I liked the PC version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone, I admit without hesitation that Chamber of Secrets on PC is definitely better than its predecessor. It has better graphics, better models and characters that have a mouth that moves when they talk than the first game. Also, it is, among all the games based on the movies, the one I prefer the most. And for several reasons.
Summary: I bought this for my 6-year-old son. He enjoys playing but some of the tasks are a little complicated for him. There are a few spots that even my husband and I have had trouble getting through. There is a good amount of variety and it manages to stay engaging. It took a few weeks of play before one of us won the game. Second time through was easier but also more fun since I was able to locate more of the hidden items.
Summary: I want to start off by saying that I love this game to bits. It's one of my favorite games to play despite some cheesy moments and the just-okay graphics. But this game has also traumatized me because: OMGFIRESNAILS In the first game they just went back and forth. Now they rush at you super fast. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME NIGHTMARES. I can never let someone else play the game when the fire snails show up because I'm always like "NO THEY'RE RIGHT BEHIND YOU RUN!
Summary: This is the first and only Harry Potter video game I've played. I loved exploring the castle and the school grounds and playing Quidditch (once I got used to the controls), and the music throughout was appropriately creepy and uplifting when it needed to be. Some of the dialogue in the cut scenes was cheesy and oftentimes I felt like there were too many cut scenes back-to-back (to-back-to-back...
