Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Game Over Online
30 August 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.
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.
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).
Pros: Extremely playable and easy to finish., Riding Buckbeak is fun., Nice graphics., Some neat co-operative puzzles., Excellent sound & music.

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.
