Nothing to be exited about

Summary: I recently started playing the Harry Potter games; CoS and PoA were pretty fun, but Goblet of Fire was kind of boring and confusing. You don't get to run around Hogwarts like you usually do, you're just set to do tasks like seeking spell books, looking for things to complete a collection and mini-games. There are very few mini-scene movies, which makes the game even more of a bore.
Excerpt: I got this game as a birthday present a couple of years back and I only played it the other day for the first time. As the title states, it's entertaining but then it gets tricky. Gameplay/Playability Like with most games, it starts off simple and gets more difficult as the game progresses. The problem with this game is it goes from easy to difficult without much warning. The game is split up into different sections which are in order of what happens in the film.
Excerpt: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is an action game for the Playstation 2 This game is based on the fourth novel in J.K Rowlings Harry Potter series and follows Harry on his fourth year through Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. The game covers the basic plot of the film as it see's Harrys name come out from the Goblet of Fire so he is required to participate in the epic wizarding event which is called the Tri Wizard Tournament.
Excerpt: I have played a range of games and have an open mind about each genre of game. However I bought this game for five pounds not that long ago and I though that was a good deal however I was wrong. The graphics are fairly good for this rubbish game but that's all that's good about it. The voices are not done by that cast the levels are pointless and it seams it only takes days to complete.
Excerpt: Rating: 7+ The Game: It follows the events of the fourth book in J.K Rowling's Harry Potter series. Though only some of the events are shown in the game, there are only a handfull of levels. You can play as either Harry, Hermione or Ron and the only way to level up is to cast alot of spells and complete the mini quests. To get to the next level you need to collect a certain amount of tri wizard shields.
Excerpt: Its always nice to act out movies and this game was no exception. TRUTH TO MOVIE The game was very true to the movie and only added those extra bits of action and sub missions needed to pad out a game to make it long enough to be playable, most of which could easily have taken place within the plot of the movie.
Pros: Good gameplay, harmless fun .
Cons: Too easy to complete, doesn't last too long .
Sub-standard Sequel to the Previous Harry Potter Games
12 December 2006
Summary: I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I loved playing the previous games. However, the Goblet of Fire game was disappointing to say the least. It wasn't as fun or as challenging as the other games in the franchise. This game might be better suited to younger children as it would be an unsatisfactory experience for teenagers and adults. I'm not one to allow reviews to influence my stance on anything before I try it myself (especially when it comes to Harry Potter!!
Excerpt: The forth harry potter game is rubbish. Wheres the action, the exploration and wheres the good backround music. I mean, the other games were brilliant but this one seems like a one level mission. You can't explore hogwarts like you used to. You can't collect wizard cards, you can't play qudditch and the backround music is at a bear minimum. The voices are quite good but not that good. I hate the missions because their all the same.
Excerpt: Another book release will inevitably be followed by a film and the simultaneous release of a game featuring the world famous character Harry Potter. I must admit that this platform game was a welcome addition to my collection, it is not perfect but it is an entertaining and challenging game with a decent amount of life in it to keep you wanting to come back for more.
Excerpt: INTRO Game adaptations of films are, as a rule, never particularly good. In the production of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", for example, there was never going to be a boss leaning over the developers shoulders saying, "Wow! The world of Harry Potter where anything is possible? We could really create something special with this! We could make it a free roaming RPG! The characters could level up, and use 100s of magical items!
Pros: Looks good in places . Good spell casting system . Co - op mode .
Cons: Too hard for target audience . Terrible AI . Dull most of the time .
