Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: This year's Harry Potter game engulfs the player in a cinematic and movie like experience that past versions have lacked. Although it has a couple of graphical and gameplay hitches, this immersive experience is something for all Harry Potter fans to try.
  • Pros: Bonus features and many extras to unlock., No HUD immerses players., Environments are direct adaptations from the film.
  • Cons: Mediocre animations., Graphical issues such as tearing., Dull cut scenes.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Review

VideoGamer.com
2 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Harry Potter seems to be loved by everyone and it's easy to see why. The story of a young wizard in training who takes on enemies well above his status, only to get in trouble over and over again is something kids can relate to and parents can read/sit through without too much pain. You'd think video games of Harry would be a no brainer then. Boy with magic takes on evil doers with the help of his friends - sounds simple enough.

PS3 Review - 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'

WorthPlaying
28 September 2007
  • Summary: In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community is in denial about the teenager's recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort, preferring to turn a blind eye to the news that Voldemort has returned.

  • Excerpt: Well, another summer comes and brings with it a wealth of game and movie tie-ins. Some we have already seen, like the terrible Transformers game and the fantastically frightful Fantastic Four. Could this new incarnation of the young wizard make a turnaround for the genre? Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix takes you back to the fifth year at Hogwarts School.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It's not a Grand Theft game, no matter how many wit machines out there say otherwise. Myself included. But Order of the Pheonix is, naturally, recommended to all Potter fans with any sort of modern-day games machine.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Game Revolution
17 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Nobody Likes Summer School Anyway I don't understand why we need an open world fantasy game like Harry Potter , because the world is already made of fantasy: We live in a time when Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello can decry the lack of innovation in games , in the same week EA spits out this mediocre chapter in its Harry Potter franchise. Want to see a magic trick? My eyes just rolled all the way into the back of my skull.
  • Pros: Brick-for-brick Hogwarts, Tossing couches at children, Orchestral anthems, Weak pacing & sloppy action, Rushed, anticlimactic writing, Mundane magic, Patchwork graphics

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Review

GameSpot
3 July 2007
  • Excerpt: The Harry Potter series of books has captured both the minds of children and adults alike. The movies haven't disappointed either and are amongst the highest grossing films of all time. For some reason, the video games that have been released haven't been able to reach the same level of quality that the movies and books have achieved. The latest game, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, continues that trend.
  • Pros: Hogwarts is re-created in all its glory for you to explore, Minigames are a pleasant diversion, Voice acting and music are good
  • Cons: The game is little more than a virtual reality chore simulator, Endless backtracking makes the game even more dull, Cutscenes are glitchy and feel unfinished, Nearly everything about the game is tedious, Story is impossible to follow if you haven't read the book

  • Excerpt: Once again J.K. Rowling's world comes alive in EA's latest adventure game epic entitled Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which follows the freshly released movie of this amazing series. Amazingly enough, EA have used actual blueprints from the movie to recreate all the wonders of this amazing universe that not only features the actual scenes from the movie but even some of the original cast and authentic motion picture soundtrack for a totally thrilling and...
