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.
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
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: Harry Potter is a multi billion-dollar franchise that began as a little, unknown book and then blossomed into one of the biggest cult phenomena since Pokemon over a decade ago. The original series of seven books (the seventh to be released on the 21st of July) has spawned five movies, several more games and an array of merchandise that would make any parent quiver at the knees.
Excerpt: Avis à tous les Moldus, Celui-Dont-Le-Front-Est-Zébré-Par-Un-Eclair s'apprête à revenir sur le devant de la scène pour une aventure que se partagent toutes les consoles de salon de la galaxie, conformément à la politique multi plates-formes d'Electronic Arts. Harry Potter Et L'Ordre Du Phénix, un jeu basé sur le film du même nom plus que sur le roman de la richissime J.K.
