Summary: I am a huge harry potter fan, yet this game is the worst game I have ever played in my entire life. Graphics: Of course because it's on the wii the graphics are worse than the other systems and made me wish that I had bought the 360 version. Gameplay: Horrible, absolutely horrible, you don't have control after you cast the spells, targeting the item you want to cast a spell on is impossible because the targeting system auto-locks on the first thing it sees and wont let...
Summary: I owned the first two harry potter games for a PC, and after remembering having so much fun with those I was really excited for the 5th game. How disappointing. You basically spend most of the game running around looking for things. its tedious and uninteresting. with a figure like harry potter you expect there to be more action, he doesnt even have a heath gage. there is no excitement in this game at all, no challenge, just irritation and let down.
Good God, J.K. Rowling must be turning in her enormous pile of money.

Summary: This game is ridden with faults; the camera seems to have a life of it's own, its near impossible to aim properly with the wii remote in some of the cramped environments as the cross hair leaps about from object to object without ever seeming to land on the item you're aiming at. On top of that the character AI is horrendous and the characters who tag along with Harry throughout the game seem to be drawn to him like a bee to a flower and as such it gets most infuriating...
Excerpt: "...played any of the other harry potter games but if they are dont buy them.... it was a good idea to have to shake your wii controler in certain ways to cast a spell but you can never cast the right one, you always end up killing draco when you try to disarm him. another horrible thing about the game is that you have to go around helping people do their homewrok before you can get on with any interesting parts of the game. i think you have to ...
Summary: Great graphics and a huge amount of Hogwarts to explore however the clumsy way the Wii remote responds to spell casting is enough to make you throw the remote at the screen! Basic gameplay seems to be one of trying to maneuver past Ron and Hermione who tail you around and always get in your way whilst on the way to do some mundane task. Dueling could be fun but trying to get 'Expeliarmus' to actually work is a nightmare and soon drains the game of fun.
Summary: Before i start this review, i'd just like to say that i bought this game solely because it received a decent 82% in Official nintendo magazine, i usually trust them for their reviews, but truth be told, this game is truly awful. First of all, the controls for the whole game game has been very clumsily done, you'll continually find yourself, running into walls and getting bashed against Ron and Hermione, who EA seem to think need to follow you every where you go.
Summary: Lets be clear... this game isn't just bad its PAINFULLY bad! Don't be fooled into thinking this a game that even closely follows the plot of the book/film. Its like a very bad version of Challenge Anneka but with stupid housework tasks like finding lost things, hanging up paintings and mending broken statues; if this is what I wanted to do in my spare time I am sure my wife and I would have a better marriage!
Summary: Wenn ebay wirklich und ernsthaft so großen Wert darauf legt, dass die Mitglieder Ihren vermeintlichen Ebaypartner besser einschätzen können, sollten sie von diesem Schwachsin des "Testberichtes" Abstand nehmen und dafür sorgen, dass auch ein Verkäufer einen Käufer wieder negativ oder neutral bewerten kann. Denn so, wie sich mein Geschäftspartner verhält, will ich ihn auch bewerten. Und davon haben auch alle anderen Mitglieder etwas.
Excerpt: Su falta de diversión, falta de lucha, vida infinita,su aucencia de la chispa de emoción que provocan los buenos juegos son los que me impulsan para poner la peor calificación a este juego. Tal vez eh sido un poco extremista con tan mala calificación, pero este juego me decepcionó bastante. Básicamente se trata de hacer tareas inútiles... solo hay un par de luchas sin emoción por la falta de medidor de vida.
Summary: Je regrette beaucoup d'avoir acheté ce jeu, les décors sont corrects mais le jeu en lui-même est ennuyeux au possible, avec des quêtes à faire un peu partout dans Poudlard, tout cela pour gagner des 'récompenses'qui sont seulement des videos sur le tournage du film! Nul! On ne s'amuse pas vraiment, les secrets à découvrir ne sont pas intéressants, ce jeu n'arrive pas à la cheville des 3 opus précédents!
