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.

  • 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.

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...
  • Pros: Brick-for-brick Hogwarts, Tossing couches at children, Orchestral anthems, Weak pacing & sloppy action, Rushed, anticlimactic writing, Mundane magic, Patchwork graphics

5.0

The video game version of Order of the Phoenix captures none of the magic in the <em>Harry Potter</em> books or films.

  • Summary: 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.
  • 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
