Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Wii Review
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.
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.
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.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Wii) Review
8 October 2007
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.
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.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It's not a Grand Theft game, no matter how many wit machines out there say otherwise. Myself included. But Order of the Pheonix is, naturally, recommended to all Potter fans with any sort of modern-day games machine.
