Beautiful but basic

  • 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! It seemed like anything you did was just a task for someone else, and nothing had anything to do with furthering the story. However, if you're mental on Potter (as I am ...

  • Summary: The gameplay is fun but it takes too long to go from one objective to another. The visual effects are good better than the film.

  • Summary: After reading reviews for all the later Harry Potter games, I decided to go for Order of the Phoenix due to the open world. I'm a great fan of GTA and I heard it was somewhat like that... The scenery and detail they put into the game was excellent, I liked the open world although I had to keep checking the map all the time. The game play was not so good though.

A game based on the film rather than the book.

  • 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. For example in the third game the creatures you face are all featured in the book but most not seen in the film, which I actually loved, as I get quite annoyed with the films and how much is missed out that it's nice to see some things in the game.

Harry Potter and the Endless Housework

  • 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 assignments. You can also uncover bonus interviews with HP actors by completing chores round the castle.

Better in detail than gameplay

  • 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 is closer to the book than to the film.

Harry Potter and the Labyrinth of the Hogwarts

  • 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!". Harry, now in his fifth year, finally seems to be allowed to choose his own path around the school... its probably something to do with "study periods" for his OWLS exams and, like the book, you don't really spend much time revising hehe.

Whats with all the hype, it wasn't great

Bahlob, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This game was alright but it's extremely overrated. It is better than the Goblet Of Fire video game which was very bad. Although in the game the graphics are good and there is a lot of Hogwarts to explore, I still think the first three games are far superior. When I first played this game I was delighted with how big Hogwarts was but after about an hour going around Hogwarts, it was like a pointless and dull chore.
