Better in detail than gameplay
26 February 2008
Summary: If there is anything good to say about this game it would be the amount of detail the designers have put into it, you don't just have what was the framework of the previous PS2 Incarnations of the Harry Potter franchise but also true-to-life visualiations of the movie sets, plus each playable room...
Summary: This game has loads of plus points but is let down by the boring gameplay. You have free reign of Hogwarts castle and can wander around completing tasks; these include plot related ones like completing chores for DA members to encourage them to come to meetings, and finding items to do homework...
Summary: This game finally releases the player from the constraints of its forebears, where the emphasis is to try and save the Wizarding World between classes, but that you get reminded every few steps that "Its Transfiguration next Harry!".
Summary: The graphics and scenery is absolutely fanstatic and it is very realistic and much like the films. However I found the game to be very slow. You spend the entire game doing tasks for other students with no real threat or duel or excitement.
Summary: I have played all the prior Harry Potter games and have enjoyed them all besides perhaps The Goblet Of Fire. I loved how they combined aspects of the books with the films to create new adventures.
Summary: When I first started playing this game, I was captivated by the clear amount of work that's gone into the scenery. Now I've finished it, I've realised that that work was what saved the game. I feel like about 50% of the actual gameplay was spent finding members of the DA around the castle!
