The Outfit Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The vehicle controls are a sticking point. Many of the maps in The Outfit are big, so vehicles are the main means of transportation. It’s so easy to zig in vehicles when you meant to zag - a major no-no with enemy A.I. this tough. The rest of The Outfit is a superfine romp that any action gamer should experience. There are high production values plastered throughout, and months of gameplay if all modes are utilized to their fullest.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The Armchair Empire
11 January 2006
  • Conclusion: four young wizards in the tourney have to square off against a fire-breathing dragon, dive into the icy Black Lake on a search-and-rescue mission, and traverse through a dangerous maze. It all culminates in a final duel against Lord Voldemort, the requisite bad guy. You can play as Harry, Ron and Hermione or all three in the very good co-op mode if you have two friends or family willing to partake in some Harry Potter gaming.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Review

GameSpot
23 November 2005
  • Excerpt: As Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger enter their fourth year at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, new challenges await them, both "professional" and personal. The Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire video game sticks strictly to the adventure aspects of the story, never touching upon the sticky relationship drama that makes up key subplots in the novel and the film.
  • Pros: Three-player cooperative play, Card system of upgrades adds depth, Triwizard Tournament levels mix up the gameplay style
  • Cons: Relies a little too much on replaying levels, Reward for finishing a collection quest isn't always clear, Could have leveraged more media from the film

  • Summary: The Goblet of Fire, offers some fun co-op play but is a let down for Harry fans in many other areas.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

DarkStation
11 November 2005
  • Conclusion: Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire is, like I have said several times through this review, a capable but average action adventure game that could have been a lot better than the final product. If you are a huge Harry Potter fan, you will still find it neat to play as the trio of characters, but there just isn’t enough in this game to warrant this as anything more than a rental.

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire

Gamecell
27 September 2006
  • Conclusion: In both games you can obtain new skills and much more powerful attacks based on points earned through your attack rating, so the better you are at the game, the more quickly you become a powerful wizard. The more powerful the spell, the more the controller will vibrate in your hand – you can feel every movement of the wand.
  • Pros: Loads of spells, Smart graphics and excellent likenesses, Co-op mode is fun
  • Cons: A bit too linear, Some sluggish controls, No LOTR-style movie clips or extras, Where’s the Xbox Live co-op mode?

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Gameplayer
30 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Nu läste jag någonstans att författaren JK Rowling funderar på att ha ihjäl Harry i nästa bok. Inte mig emot. Då kanske vi slipper mer obefogat skryt från Manning och halvtaskiga licens-spel från Electronic Arts.
  • Pros: Bra stämning och ganska kul till en början…
  • Cons: men det blir snabbt enformigt. Bara för HP hardcore-fans.

Harry Potter und der Feuerkelch

GameCaptain
9 December 2005
  • Conclusion: Harry Potter und der Feuerkelch lebt fast ausschließlich vom Potterbonus, ohne diesen hätte das uninspirierte Gameplay wohl überhaupt keine Chance vom Spieler beachtet zu werden. Die Präsentation des vierten Aufgusses ist den Kinderschuhen entwachsen, die Anforderungen und Aufgabenstellungen nicht. Die teilweise gelungene Präsentation lehnt sich stark an den Film an, es fehlt dem Spiel jedoch an Seele.
