Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
26 April 2004
Excerpt: You've probably all heard the talk about games based on another licence. In short, they suck. The games based on books or movies are usually just clever marketing ploys used to make a few quick bucks with not much work put in.
Conclusion: The best solution is probably for Mum/Dad/Big Brother/Sister to play along with Kid, which is a nice idea but seldom works in practice. With some better testing (dodgy cameras on the stealth bits and a tricky difficulty setting for the kiddies), more freedom (there are lots of blocked off doors) and...
Pros: Great, authentic looks, Smart spells, It's a nice, relatively non-violent game, The Nimbus 2000 rox man!, It'll keep the kiddies quiet for a while.
Cons: Iffy difficulty, it seems to be either simplistic and repetitive or tricky and taxing, No multiplayer, Harry can't punch anyone's face off, It'll only keep the kiddies quiet until they need your help.
Summary: Spill som er basert på bok- eller film-lisenser er man naturligvis svært skeptiske mot før man begynner å spille, men til Harry Potters fordel ble jeg positivt overrasket over hvor tro spillet er til lisensen, samt hvor mye god dynamikk og gameplay det hadde å by på.
