Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince game review

Boys' Life magazine
25 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Could the new Harry Potter game use more magic? There’s some good news and some bad news, depending on which version you play. I’m afraid I have to tell you to stay away from the handheld versions. Both the PSP and DS games are pretty similar.

  • Conclusion: In the end, the Harry Potter video game curse still hasn’t been lifted. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is still as poor as any of the past titles have been and the future doesn’t look any better with only one book left.

1 February 2010
  • Excerpt: When you've created an entire virtual Hogwarts school, it makes sense that you'll want to get the most out of it, but in the case of EA's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, it means the game is incredibly similar to the publisher's previous effort.

  • Summary: Harry Potter has yet another movie based video game, with improved controls and a sand box environment to boot. It is also badly written and suffers from a lack of decent challenge.

PSX Extreme
20 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Harry Potter has become a legitimate modern-day phenomenon and J.K. Rowling now has enough money to purchase a small assortment of countries. The latest book and movie, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” have performed as expected and raked in more cash, although once again, we’re left with a...

  • Conclusion: Again, I like what EA has done here. I think they have put their development team to work and asked for something that is better than The Order of the Phoenix. What EA has delivered is definitely an improvement, but it still needs a lot more work to make it solid.

2 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Harry Potter video games should complement the other media, providing gleeful interaction to match the excellent story from the books and the visual splendor of the films. But Half-Blood Prince isn't much fun to play once you've gotten a taste of the few simple activities.
  • Pros: Lots of references to the original Harry Potter fiction.
  • Cons: Gameplay consists of only three different activities that get old fast, Story is difficult to follow if you haven't read the book, Character models and voice acting are subpar.
