Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Game Over Online
7 June 2004
  • Excerpt: With so much excitement building up in anticipation of the third feature film release, Electronic Arts presents Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban a day before the story hits the silver screens. Like previous movie tie-ins, Prisoner of Azkaban allows you to interactively help Harry, Ron and Hermione as they uncover Sirius Black and his plot to kill Harry Potter. The game begins with the gang returning by rail to Hogwarts.

Game Over Online
7 June 2004
  • Excerpt: The game begins with the gang returning by rail to Hogwarts. Right from the beginning, something is amiss and a crazed Dementor comes on to the train knocking Harry unconscious. This introduces one of the new features: Prisoner of Azkaban lets you assume the role of the three principal characters. As Ron, you will be able to save your pal Harry but Ron's specialty is finding and opening secret doors.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

  • Conclusion: There is a selection of mini games: Duelling Club (three-on-three team battle with spells), Owl Racing (A choice of four owls, checkpoint race through rings right around Hogwarts) and the Hippogriff Flight Challenge (ride one of four Hippogriffs to catch 20 bats as quickly as possible). Sadly these games also don't feature any multiplayer options (although you can obviously take it in turns to see who can get the best score/time).
  • Pros: Extremely playable and easy to finish., Riding Buckbeak is fun., Nice graphics., Some neat co-operative puzzles., Excellent sound & music.
  • Cons: No multiplayer., No Quidditch.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Xbox Review

  • Conclusion: People expecting another poor movie-to-video game conversion look again; this game really does move out of that territory and actually offers a decent gaming experience. While sadly short and sometimes shallow, what there is to this game is quite enjoyable; though whether this enjoyability will only appeal to Potter fans is another questions.

  • Conclusion: There are some nice ideas here that will really appeal to fans of the franchise. However, some credit must be given to the apparent effort that has been made with this particular title; while all of these aspects are well-used conventions pilfered from other sources, they do add a great dimension to this game that makes it seem less shallow and unimpressive than the other games of the series.

Harry Potter und der Gefangene von Askaban

  • Conclusion: Man wird eben einfach das Gefühl nicht los, dass das Spiel unbedingt zum Filmstart fertig werden musste. Auf die Dauer besonders nervend sind vor allem sporadische Abstürze beim sowieso schon viel zu häufig auftretenden Laden neuer Bereiche. Da EA keine Quicksave oder Autosave-Funktion eingebaut hat, ist man mehr als gut damit beraten, in regelmäßigen Abständen in einem der maximal drei Slots zwischenzuspeichern.

  • Summary: Das Flugmodell ist - wie in den Vorgängermodellen - sehr realistisch und bietet sowohl für den Profi als auch für den Anfänger ein gutes Fluggefühl. Apropos Anfänger, hier gibt es nun zahlreiche Tutorials und Missionen, die gerade dem Anfänger den Einstieg in das Programm erleichtern. Alles in allem hat Microsoft nachgelegt und überholt in fast jedem Punkt seine Mitbewerber.

Harry Potter und der Gefangene von Askaban

14 August 2004
  • Summary: Sicherlich ist "Harry Potter - Der Gefangene von Askaban" seinen beiden Vorgängern sehr ähnlich. Du besorgst Zauberbücher, bewältigst den Schulalltag eines jungen Zauberschülers und bekämpfst ganz nebenbei noch die bösen Mächte der Welt. Doch eines hat sich grundlegend geändert oder auch vielmehr verbessert. Dieses Mal steuerst du nicht nur den berühmten Zauberlehrling Harry sondern eben auch seine beiden Freunde Ron und Hermine.
