Summary: this is a very fun game for fans of the series.. its a very short game i mean ull prolly finish it in like 6-8 hrs. the achievements/trophies are easy to get and the only complaint i have about it is when u turn around to go back the other way ron and hermione are standing right behind you and they wont move and are blocking your way.
Summary: this game is very awesome, i would recommend anyone who is a fan of harry potter to play this game, on any of the platforms it is available on, the story isn't the longest, however after you beet the game you can still have fun starting fights in the courtyards or climbing/discovering things, and unlike others instead of using: Square,Triangle, and Circle to cast spells you actually move the thumb-stick in order to cast the spell, it is quite inventive as well as...

Excerpt: "...really getting into the whole Harry Potter thing, yes, shame on me! For some strange reason, when EA released 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' for the Sony PS3, I was drawn to it like a magnet and just had to take a look. Previous incarnations of the Harry Potter games seemed to lack something in the magic department, they just seemed to try and do too much magic. In this latest offering EA have nailed it right on the head, the atmosphere ...
Conclusion: Oh dear what can the matter be, Harry potter is stuck in a 360 port travisty. The storyline has been taken right down and does not have the feel of the films or the books. They have opted not to use clips from the film but to keep it to rendered graphics which would not have been a problem for the PS3 until you see that this is another EA lazy port of a XBOX360 game which can't touch the graphical power of the PS3, I have both machines and paid the extra for the PS3...
Conclusion: i must say that Harry potter was a very weak game, it hardly made me keep with it as it is very boring. The Harry Potter series is all about exploring like in Harry Poter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Conclusion: I brought this the other day for my little boy who cannot get enough of playing (surprising really when all he normally is interested in is FIFA!!!). The open ended way you can walk around Hogwarts really opens the game up, but at times this can be more of a hinderence as it can take ages to get from one place to another. Nether the less, if a game can keep a young boy happy for a long time and at a cheap price, then who am I to complain....
