Copy recieved in Dutch
12 January 2013
Summary: i was very disappointed as the copy I received was in Dutch. When I contacted the 3rd party seller through Amazon to see if I could get a copy in English they said they hadn't any in stock. As it was close to Xmas and it was a gift I had to keep it. The game plays in english but all the associated booklets etc my son can't read. It was just as well that it wasn't a gift for a friend.
Excerpt: "I really love Harry Potter (as my reviews seem to tell!), so it seemed right to buy the game to my favourite film. I already had the DS version of this which was a massive let down but however found in the HMV sale, the PS2 version. I've never actually played a 'bad' PS2 game so thought it would be interesting to see if this version would be any better than the terrible Nintendo DS version. ==A Bit About Harry Potter == Harry Potter is the exceptionally ...
Pros: Get To Explore Hogwarts, Slightly better than the DS version
Cons: Really Boring, A Huge Let Down For Fans, BORING !
Summary: Having played previous Potter games, and loving them (until the 4th one) i was looking forward to playing the game, especially after all the good reviews. However, the game had none of the action and adventure of it's predecessors. No class challenges or puzzle solving. No sneaking around at night or flying around on your broomstick playing Quidditch.
Harry Potter 5 - Great Book, Great Film, Shame about the game
17 November 2007
Excerpt: "== Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix == === Introduction === Don't get me wrong, this game was entertaining, even if only for a day. But its such a shame, such a waste of potential, and it had GREAT potential. === The Game === This game, brought to you buy Warner Bro Interactive Entertainment and EA games, is based on the book Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoniex. Harry is now in his 5th year of hogwarts, after ending his 4th ...
Pros: Beautiful graphics and alot to do for people obssesed with 100% a game
Cons: Boring, Tedious and sense of . . . "this could have been so much more"
Summary: Well, when I first bought this game, it was great fun, but being the caretaker for the school soon starts to get boring. The gameplay is not the greatest at all, you just run around doing spells on broken objects and making things float and just helping Hogwarts get clean and tidy really. All main gameplay is collecting DA members and doing their chores, then you get to be sirius and dumbledore which is very dissapointing.
Summary: I liked the first three games of the series. They were sweet, with plenty of fun puzzels to solve. Unfortunately, in this game, the puzzels have been replaced with what amounts to housework and chores. I thought that Goblet of Fire was a disaster and I'm sorry to say this game is even worse. It doesn't bode well for the future. The Game feels small and undeveloped.
