A limited play game for only one person

Kmal, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this game for my 7 and 9 year old kids for Christmas because they love all things Harry Potter. However, this game has been a pretty big dud around the house. Some reasons include: (1) It's only one player so they can't play with each other or with friends. (2) You have to follow the game script throughout. There is no free play, exploring or creativity allowed. (3) The game was super easy for them to win and since there's no free play then it is basically over.

Unlike Book of Spells

  • Summary: Book of Spells is great. This however, is less so. Unfortunately the formula from the original game seems to of been thrown out of the window here. The controls are buggy with the Move, having to change 'tool' every few minutes gets tiring real quickly too.

Entertaining for brief moments but tedious in the longer run

Feanor, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: My seven-year-old has been practising his wandwork with this for a while now and keeps himself reasonably entertained for half an hour or so, before the tedium of repeating spells brings him to his knees. Also, there seems to be a requirement to remember all the wand movements for spells previously learnt. So if one takes a break between playing the game, one often finds oneself having to relearn them. (Or maybe that's just me.

Cool tech; poor game design

M. Green "Cook and reader", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Fascinating use of the technology but how they managed to make magic lessons this boring is beyond me. It's like a dull tutorial of a good game that isn't there.

Don't bother, spend your money on something else.

ChristineCol, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I followed the hype, is my son playing this since Christmas Day? Nope. Got to say, even I am sick of hearing Robbie Coltrane droning on as we await something to happen. Spent ages aligning the web cam bit to show the room on the screen, had to have all the lights on in the room so it lit up too. It's a gimmick and the kids got bored very quickly (aged 11). One for the charity shop, waste of £50.

  • Summary: 5-6 timer var sønnen på 11 år, om at gennemføre hele book of spells, wonderbook Der er kun 5 forskellige baner, så de er hurtig overstået. Der skal dog siges, han hyggede sig med spillet, sålænge det varede.
