Summary: This game may seem appealing at first, but once you play for a while, it's really not. Basically, you just fly around on a stupid broomstick and shoot, which is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too easy. Make the game HARDER!!!!!!!!!!
The idea was cool, but the game just doesn't live up to anything.

Summary: This game looked like a great idea at first and I was exciting to get it. But after the first Quidditch game, I realized that the game didn't live up to the hype. The controls are bad, too simple, and sloppy. There are barely any modes to play other than a game, a game, a game, and yet another game. All you do in World Cup mode is play games and games. No customizable features at all. BORING.
Excerpt: "Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup is an okay game. At first, it can be very fun to play. The graphics are good and the game is fun for the most part, once you learn the controls. However it is one of those games that gets very boring after a while. It is very easy to beat which makes it not really worth buying it. After you have beaten the World Cup, it gets boring, and it only takes a week or two to beat the World Cup. Because you have basically ...
Pros: good graphics, fairly fun
Cons: somewhat difficult to learn the controls, is too simple to beat
Excerpt: "...simple. Quidditch is the Harry Potter version of football. There are 3 hoops at either end of an oval field. Your aim is to get the ball (Quaffle) through your opponents hoops while stopping them getting it through yours. To do this, you have several players on each team who fly around and pass the ball before shooting. After a certain time, something called a 'snitch' will appear, with a long yellow line behind it. You then have to chase and catch ...
Pros: Great gameplay, good for kids and big kids too
Cons: A little repetitive . . . ok, a lot repetitive . . .
Excerpt: "...reviews. Being a bit of a Harry Potter nerd, I'd been meaning to buy this game for a while, mainly as I like 'extreme' sports games, and if riding a broomstick isn't extreme, then I don't know what is. WHAT SORT OF GAME IS IT? If you don't know anything else about Harry Potter, then you should know he plays Quidditch, a basketball like game played on a flying broomstick. It's one of the most amazing things I think Rowling has invented - it's ...
Pros: Feels like playing Quidditch, looks nice
Cons: Gets repetitive, almost impossible to collect all the cards
Excerpt: "This is an easy to master game with easy controls. The matches are simple to play and it’s quite hard to lose. You start off as a Hogwarts house in the Hogwarts Quidditch, if you win you can then play as an international team and try to get the Quidditch world cup. The matches have no time limit, they finish when the golden snitch appears. When the golden snitch appears you become the seeker and have to follow the golden snitches golden path to get ...
Summary: Nice concept, good graphics and entertaining for a while but...it is extremely easy to beat the other teams and playing match after match after match (and whooping the opposition) does get tedious after a while. I've had this since Christmas, played many matches, and I still haven't reached the end! This game is probably better for young children who wouldn't find it so easy.
Summary: Harry Potter is a great film and a great book. But are you wondering if the game's as good. Well, before you can enter the World Cup. You have to win the school cup. THis game is bit to easy as you practically always win the snitch chase. It is a very good game, though if you play it multi-player as it is then not so easy. My reccommendation is to rent it, see if you like it, and then buy it.
Excerpt: "...that anyone who’s interested in Harry Potter would like this but don’t be so sure. Every Harry Potter game that has come out, I have either on playstation 2 or playstation. I love Quidditch, seeing it in the films and reading about the matches in the books and I was really excited to play the game! So I went out and bought for PS2 although I’m sure it comes for every other console out there! ***WHAT IS QUIDDITCH?*** Quidditch ...
Pros: Great for Quidditch fans !
Cons: Repetitive, not very challenging, easy to play
