This game was not what I expected it to be.

Summary: This game sucks, the makers of the game did a poor job on explaining on what the mission was and how to use things. Now I know why that a lot of these games were being sold used. If I would of known ahead of time I wouldn't have bought this or the second game. I liked the other games versions on ps2. The game had good graphics, on the other hand, the words didn't match what the person was saying the whole time.
Summary: Parents, don't be fooled. This game is a monumental joke. Kids are our future. And you will crush their spirits if you give them this nightmare. In all honesty, this is the worst game I've played in the last two generations of gaming. It's a sham on so many levels. A Harry Potter 3rd person shooter? What a wonderful idea! Just wrap your head around the absurdity of this. Harry Potter defeating hordes of enemies (I defeated over 1000 in my first playthrough!
Summary: I have purchased, played and had loads of fun with all the Harry Potter games. I always get mine for Playstation 2. I have games 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 all for playstation 2. WHY would they make all these games for playstation 2 and suddenly not make the last two for it?! Yea, I get it. Playstation 3 is the new thing. But the 5th and 6th games were for BOTH playstation 2 and 3. Number one, playstation 3 is too pricey and I can't afford it.
Summary: Let me get straight to the point. This game blows and is in my estimation, an early candidate for worst game of the year. The history of Harry Potter hasn't always been a good one. They have ranged from fair to acceptable, but have never really reached the heights of imagination from the rich source material that they came from. However, you could not deny that they were each good, solid efforts with the next iteration improving from the one before it.
Conclusion: Before I start I am a massive Potter fan, (read the books a lot, seen all the films, paying out a small fotune to go to orlando...etc) but I have to say this game is awful, repetitive, and thrown together. I have played the two previous on PS3 and they seem to be gradually getting worse. I am unusure what game some of you have been playing but the beginning part was repetitive and by the time I got to Grimmauld place I had lost the will!!
Conclusion: If you are thinking of buying this game, don't waste your money. The graphics are awful, the mini-scenes are disgraceful, and the game play is shockingly stupid. Considering this is one of the most profitable movie franchises going, there is certainly no evidence to show that any of the profit has gone into this appalling game. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME!! IT'S NOT WORTH THE DISAPPOINTMENT!!
Excerpt: After several years of average to good Harry Potter games Warner comes out with this tragic waste of time. The mechanics are annoying, the camera is inconvenient, those two things make dueling tedious and dueling is all the game is. Each level is walking through an area zapping all the death eaters that apparate into your path. There are collectables but they're not fun to find and you must find them all in one play-through if you want to get the trophies.
