Summary: My family has the Prisoner of Azkaban for PC, Goblet of Fire for PC, and Order of the Phoenix for Wii. We like the Prisoner of Azkaban a lot, possibly more than the OotP. Goblet of Fire is TERRIBLE. Order of the Phoenix would be much better if it had a multi-player capacity.
Summary: I'm a huge Harry Potter fan so I thought the this game would be fun! When I had finally finished the instructions, which were long and detailed, I thought I'd be prepared for playing the game. I was very confused at times by which tasks to do first, and how to remember all the spell motions.
Summary: I'm a newcomer to the Harry Potter game franchise, so I can't compare this game to the previous entries in the series. I'm a fan of adventure games in general, especially the classic titles from Sierra and LucasArts, so it was a great treat to have such a large and immersive environment to explore.
Summary: Last weekend, I went and saw the recently released fifth Harry Potter film. Even though I would categorize myself as a casual fan, I am getting more interested with the release of the final book in the series and will probably try to read them all when I have time.
Good game but instructions leave a lot to be desired.

Summary: I think I respresent the target audience that Nintendo is going after with the Wii. I have not liked video games much even though I am technically savy (programmer)--though I was fond of pong! I just purchased the Wii and this is my first game purchase (other than Wii Play).
Summary: That's what they should have titled this game, because that's practically all you do--float things around, with a few brief duels thrown in. Oh, and a lot of wandering back and forth to different parts of Hogwarts, looking for people.
Summary: I so wanted to really like this game. Really. The production values are, overall, excellent; obviously, a great deal of care has gone into the experience and presentation. Finally, we have a Harry Potter game that does a decent job (not perfect) of capturing the 'feel' presented through the movies.
Summary: I love the Potter series, but if I was incharge of a brand this big, I would make sure it was perfect before releasing it. I understand they have to release it before the movie comes out, won't make sense if they delay it to spend more time in production. But it would of helped.
