Summary: Since I somewhat enjoyed Order of the Pheonix when I played it in 2008, I had my hopes up for this game. After owning this game for 3 days, my expectations were surpassed. I love the gameplay and one of the things I LOVE about this game is that Hogwarts is right there in all of its glory. Almost every place and detail is included in this game, from the Boathouse, Hagrid's Hut, Hogwarts itself, etc.
Summary: The story mode for the game is very short, only took me about 4 hours to finish. The dueling club added very little challenge to the game as it was very easy. Potions and flying were also fairly easy but trying to get a five star rating for your potions making or flying ability, in my opinion, made the game more fun by adding just the right amount of difficulty without becoming frustrating for a casual gamer game.
Summary: Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince is a simple, straightforward game that provides several hours of fun and as a potential to provide even longer lasting (if somewhat frustrating) fun. First of all, the film's plot is propelled by cut scenes that are connected by the game's play (as usual). The game play usually as little to do with the book/film's plot.
Summary: One of the things that I most loved about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was being able to wander around Hogwarts at will, visiting classrooms, Hagrid's Hut, the Owlery, even to Harry's bedroom above the Gryffindor Common Room. Based heavily on the sets from the movie, the immersive three dimension atmosphere charmed and made for a truly fun experience.
Excerpt: The game seems to start of well and was impressed with the graphics,but when it came to doing the spells it was really hard controlling the wand. So gave up after endless tries at doing one spell.Overall the game seems fine but lost heart over the wand..
