Summary: rent it see how you like it, i would say that its not worth the money. The game has nice graphics but thats about it. The gameplay is simple but the camera is always off slightly making Harry hard to control, it is next to nothing like the book, don't expect it to be like the book or the movie the game is completley different. it's also far to easy, the game tells you exactly what to do. I would recommend the game for younger gamers 6-13.

Summary: This is bad. The graphics are almost the same as the PS2 version but the gameplay is bad. The Graphics are glitchy, you can see through walls in many locations & the targetting is way off.

Then theres the content (or I should say lack of content) The PS2 has massive amounts of sub games/tasks such as Broom Racing & Gnome Tossing to name just 2 but the XBox doesn't have (I know you can toss Gnomes at the burrow & fly through hoops above...
Summary: Other reviews on this page are spot on and I can only concur: the game is visually impressive and will appeal to Harry Potter fans (of which do not count myself) BUT the game falls down utterly on several crucial counts. The underlying storyline of the game simply does not hang together: at no point did I really get the feel that what I was doing: defeating a character, searching for a spellbook, was working towards some ultimate end.
