Good but disapointing

Summary: I got this game thinking that it was the story of the movie... but it has a lot of missions that are not included in the movie neither the book. if you want a good game for someone older than 12, don't buy this game.
Summary: Once and awhile in the past, I would succumb to the guilty pleasure of wanting to play a video game based on this great series of books and movies. That pleasure would be short lived immediately when you realized that the game consisted of little "cute" mini-games that had no bearing on the movie or the book it had chosen to represent, and came off feeling that it was meant for a much younger crowd.
Summary: I rarely get video games based on movies. They never seem to work. The controls are undefined, the side quests are a waste of time and you end up feeling cheated afterwise realizing you just gave up your free time on it. Although the game mechanics seemed to work the game play seemed repetitive. When a death eater comes around kids remember, "duck and cover". That is what this game was duck, cover, point, shoot, duck, cover, point shoot.
Summary: I have owned and played every Harry Potter game except the one about Quidditch. I even have the Lego Harry Potter game on console and PSP. I am a huge Potter fan. This game is not very good. I know they tried, but EA Bright Light has failed, failed, failed on every HP game since Prisoner of Azkaban. Goblet of Fire was ok, but it was the transition into failure. I know where they went wrong.
Summary: I will begin this review by stating that the first video game I ever purchased myself was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the original PlayStation. I absolutely loved it! Granted, I was 11 when the game was released and, so, more easily amused. But what was fantastic about the first three Harry Potter video games was the amount of exploration available to the player and the puzzle-solving platforms.

Summary: I loathed Part 1 with a passion. The controls were clunky and largely unresponsive, the graphics, save for a few character models, were muddy and poorly textured, and the gameplay was rudimentary at best with ridiculous and repetitious side missions that did nothing more than to give the player the illusion it was more varied than it really was.
