Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
6 July 2004
Excerpt: games themselves. That's not to say they don't do the movies and/or books justice, it's just that they don't exactly break new ground. In this grand tradition, the third game, surprisingly based on the movie it shares a name with, manages to mirror events from the book and the movie well, but does little else. refers to a certain Sirius Black, recently liberated from his incarceration and making a beeline for our wizardly hero.
Excerpt: Based on the movie of the same name currently storming the box office, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for PS2 and Xbox allows players to control all three heroes-in-training through the same environments seen in the film.
Summary: This could really be classed as a "safe" game. Electronic Arts haven't taken any risks but they know their audience and have modified the game to suit them. Easily the best Harry Potter game to date.
