Summary: I just have to give my 2 cents here. This game is awful. Buying something like this just encourages the production of more bad games. I don't find any fault with producing a movie based game, but the programmers/designers need to have some time to make a decent and playable video game. We've gotten to the point where any game based on a movie is EXPECTED to be bad just because this has become status quo. It doesn't have to be this way.
Summary: I have only started playing this game. It looks great on the screen, but it has some obvious and annoying bugs. Sometimes dialogue appears on the screen, but there's no voice for it. At one point, I heard a continuous clop-clopping sound and it turned out to be Hermione stuck on the stairs, walking but not moving. My guess is that the game had to meet a target date, ready or not. Too bad there's no updating a game that's on a disc.
Summary: "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is probably the worst Potter game I have played. There are many bugs that make the game just way too frustrating. The camera angle is horrible- it shifts at the worst moments and one finds oneself going in the same direction one came from. There's something wrong with the sound- sometimes you hear the characters voices and sometimes you don't.
Conclusion: This game is quite fun to play, the concept is anyway. You have no indication of what to do on main tasks other than your nitwitt best pals advice when they are stating the obvious. The graphics are my biggest hang up they are dreadfull I cant tell Dumbledore from Ron its appauling. Also when characters are talking you get sort of a picture to represent them honestly, some of the pictures make them look like fish absiloutly a joke.
Conclusion: the harry potter games are unique and fun games and if you want a game that makes you think this is the game for you. gameplay:4/5 grapics:4/5 sound:4/5 lifespan:5/5 if you ever get stuck on a part in this game my advice is that you keep trying because you will complete it.
