Summary: Vastly inferior to the HBP game. Tough to even move or inspect anything with Ron and Hermione constantly in the way. Constant nagging to complete the current task makes the mute button your best friend. Only the Gobstone and Wizard Chess games are truly fun.
Summary: I bought this for my 10 year old grandson who plays a lot on the WII and is a Harry Potter fan.....He was easily distracted and changed to something else rather quickly. This may be OK for an older player but I tried it and didn't like it either!
Summary: In addition to all the other comments already posted, I'd like to add a few of my own: 1. Frame rate issues everywhere. The poor little Wii doesn't seem to be able to keep up with the game engine's insane level of detail, leading to really choppy scenes and movement.
Summary: Ok, I am an older gamer. Played Zork 1 when it came out (the original), anyway. My wife and I love the Harry Potter series. I bought this for her for Christmas to play on our Wii. The controls were difficult often impossible. Some areas the camera blocked the view of where you were supposed to go.
Summary: First of all, my 7 year-old was VERY revved up about this! She is a complete Potter-nut, and was looking forward to trying this on her brand new Wii. Well, it was hard. The game starts with the death-eater attack in the underground walkway from the movie, before you have any clue how to fight them.
Hogwarts accurately recreated in video game form... but terrible game play

Summary: The only interesting thing about this game is that it you can explore Hogwarts and the grounds. It seemed very realistic to me and the graphics are pretty cool. But as far as game play goes - it's absolutely the worst game I have ever played. 90% of the game is performing menial tasks.
Summary: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for the Wii is, in my opinion, a very bad game. The bad parts of this game are that the view is annoying and random, it skips over major parts of the story, teleports you at random points (for example I was in Occlumency class and then less than a second...
Summary: A bit of a missed opportunity this game. I LOVE Harry Potter, and I LOVED the idea of using the wii remote to do magic, but the controls are a little off, and the movements a little unimaginative.
Summary: I really liked this game, but, there are an AWFULL! lot of bugs in it, for instance you will randomly appear on the roof, and not be able to get down and stuff... it reminds me a lot of the early 3D GTA games... apart from that it is a really good games, it makes you think, etc,
