Summary: As a Harry Potter fan I love owning the games the books and other merchandise and what I was missing was this game the PS2 version. I got it yesterday and it was good fun however there was no booklet. Luckily I know my way around Harry Potter games by now and for people who don't theres as always an ingame tutorial getting you used to the game.
Summary: My Aunt bought me this game as a birthday present. I really like it, but it has just a few things wrong with it: * It misses lots of parts out of the book/movie. * Ron and Lockhart don't even go into the chamber with Harry. * The loading screens take ages. * When duelling, when you cast Expelliarmus, it sometimes dosen't do anything. * Dobby is absent from the game. This game is good, but needs improving a bit.
Summary: This game is definitely enjoyable and kept me from being bored. But only for two days, whereas another game I have recently been playing has kept me going for a few weeks. I admit, that for some things I did use a walk through but only because sometimes the way to complete a task is not obvious. Once you find out how to do it however, it is probably too easy. As the other reviews have said, the loading screen did get annoying, as did the voices of Hermione and Ron.
Summary: The good: Exploring Hogwarts Casting Spells Long story with plenty of side-quests Captures the atmosphere of Potter perfectly The castle at night, sneaking past prefects The bad: Not being able to explore ALL of the places from the book (going inside knockturn alley shops, going inside the Burrow, Dumbledores office) Getting caught by prefects Voice-overs for certain characters Overall: A fantastic game for Harry Potter fans.
Summary: One thing's for sure you will not get bored because i just finished the game yesterday so it has taken me 4 years to finish.The graphics are not perfect because it is quite old.This game is very addictive and there is a very big area to explore. The whole story is exactly the same as the book and movie so you know were you are.After the credits at the end you are given the chance to stay in the common room and browse through 'Colin's Photo Album' so you can re-visit...
Summary: This was a pretty good game. I thought the graphics were okay, but Harry lookd and sounded like a three-year-old. Other than that the controls are pretty smooth and the gameplay is okay. You don't see much of Ron and Hermione... but it's fine. Rent this, rent one, buy three.
Summary: Well, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is not the most exciting game you will ever play. Its definitly not the most complex. If you want a game the will last for ever this is not for you. Saying that, my daughter loved it, my wife loved it and I loved it. Its very easy to get into. There are loads of extra things to find away from the central plot (all hidden away somewhere).
Summary: This game is ridiculously cool. My whole family has bonded over it, which is truely amazing, knowing my family. My Dad is opposed to video games because they're "making American youth lazy," my older brother is a video game hound who at first thought it would be too easy, but then found himself cussing and starting over, and I usually have a hard time with video games because I can't seem to remember all the buttons you have to be able to push at the same time in the...
Summary: I bought this on a whim - being a bit sick of the first person shooter gorefests that I was playing. I'm a 25 year old hardened gamer but I'm glad I got this. The Chamber of Secrets is magical escapism and I found it nice and relaxing. Harry can't die (only faint) so that immediately takes the pressure off allowing you to take your time and enjoy exploring the environment.
