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.
Summary: If you're a fan of the books and movies, you'll probably like Quidditch World Cup. The gameplay is fairly challenging, the visuals are stunning, and some of the special moves are pretty spectacular. However, the game is not without flaws. It's wayyyy too easy at the lower levels, especially at the Hogwarts games. It's all too easy to score goals, and it can be annoyingly easy to control the results of the match.
Summary: Dude, this game be el-crapo. I would rather play donkey kong a billion times then look at the cover of this game. First of all in Harry Potter #4 in the 6th chapter you will note that harry has changed his uniform from a brown to a royal blue. That just infuriates me that they didn't change it in the game too!!!! The game was sweet but I couldn't get past the color palette.
Summary: i saw a review say "this game sucks" 12 times in all caps, I just wish I knew why this game sucked so much,especially since he later wrote it is a bad game even for "tue" (i believe he ment true) harry potter fan, try reading the books, just don't stop on the first two pages. I'm one and 12 have more common sense then this guy. Not quite sure what to rate game, it made me rate so I put in the middle.
Summary: This game is only good for Harry Potter fans. I bought it a while ago, and have found it extremely playable and fun. The multiplayer action is also good. The only downside is that it is hard to collect quidditch cards after you have collected the first twenty or so, the matches themselves are quite long, even with combos, and its very topical. You also need to know the rules of quidditch, or learn them, to play this game.
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 ...
