Disappointing

Nat, Amazon

  • 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. You spend the majority of the game walking to your destination in the castle. After hp4, it is a massive improvement, however it's excitement lags way behind that of 1,2 and 3.

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

Jen13, Amazon
29 December 2008
  • 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.
