Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Wii Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix features the best digital rendition of Hogwarts Castle yet, it’s both huge and true to the films. Fans are sure to be delighted with getting the chance to explore, seeing all the familiar rooms and characters, and just generally having a jolly good time. EA have used this vast area efficiently, crafting an exploration based game out of it.

  • Conclusion: I wish they could have done more with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but it feels rushed an uninspired. That's just the type of game it is.

  • Conclusion: The Remote does offer a bright future for the remaining two (or more?) games in the Potter franchise on Nintendo Wii. Simple tweaks to the spell controls and even a new exclusive wand accessory shaped like a wand could take the series to another level. That is, assuming EA can cast Incendio on the rampant cut-scenes and build in more compelling gameplay elements. Think of Phoenix as a solid launching pad to something not necessarily bigger, but greater.
  • Pros: Hogwarts is HUGE!, Wii Remote mostly a success, Real actor likenesses, voices
  • Cons: Boring gameplay beyond the wand, Some Wii Remote spell-casting quirks

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Review

VideoGamer.com
22 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Harry Potter seems to be loved by everyone and it's easy to see why. The story of a young wizard in training who takes on enemies well above his status, only to get in trouble over and over again is something kids can relate to and parents can read/sit through without too much pain. You'd think video games of Harry would be a no brainer then. Boy with magic takes on evil doers with the help of his friends - sounds simple enough.

  • Summary: Though there are other versions of this game available such as the beautiful Xbox 360 version, on the Nintendo Wii is the only place where you'll get immersed into the experience and world of Harry Potter. This is the definitive version for any fan out there and even for non-fans it’s a world you'll want to visit if you own a Wii.

  • Summary: It looks great, and some elements of the book are handled well. But the extended periods of wandering ruin it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix review

Wii's World
11 October 2007
  • Conclusion: This is probably the best Potter game yet, as it takes full advantage of the magic and wonder of the Harry Potter universe. While most casual gamers would be pleased with a rental, hardcore potter fans will be very satisfied. So while we enjoy Harry's final moments before the worst comes to him, this game will make us enjoy his presence before the final book is released.

  • Excerpt: If there is one game that had the potential to dazzle people with its unique use of the Wii Remote, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix should have earned that title. Sadly, what could have been a wand waving good time ended up skirting the line of mediocrity due to a seemingly endless barrage of fetch quests.
