Summary: For Potter fans, this one doesn't disappoint. The spellcasting interface is a nice touch. It takes some getting used to, of course, but it feels like you're actually CASTING the spells, rather than pushing a button. It's probably more like that on the Wii, but us PS2 adherents will take what we can get.
Summary: i got into the harry potter books when the fourth movie came to theatres, from then on i have read the entire series 1 - 7 3x over, then this game came out, i was already a gamer. so i tryed it and loved it from the first second i played. not only can you cast spells in corridors at students to start a fight, then theres the portable swamps you set off, then the best sidequests for book fans. alltogether its a good game, a re-explorable game for harry potter fans.
Summary: This isn't a game for someone not too into the books or the movies. **PROS** Hogwarts is a sandbox. You have free-reign to roam all over the castle and some of the grounds, and they are extensive and extremely detailed. They made it from sketches and maps made by set directors and Rowling herself. It can take a while to get to places you need to go - even with the numerous secret passageways you'll uncover. But it's not a bad thing for a HP fanatic such as myself.
Summary: I'm a casual gamer, playing games that might interest me only, not really on the lookout for the latest and greatest. I'm also a big Harry Potter fan. In past years, I avoided the Harry Potter games merely because of some of the other movie tie-in games that I've played were basically on the intelligence level of an eight year old and rather silly indeed.
Summary: We bought this product at a really good price and delivery was very quick. I would have given 5 stars but the product didn't come with an instruction booklet, so wasn't perfect. However, this was easily remedied by going online and looking for the info we needed which was readily available. Thanks for a very good transaction.
