In the way

Summary: My main complaint about this game is that the other two characters that you are not playing as are constantly getting in the way or walking about and getting caught by trolls and ruining everything. Many times the ones helping me were the reason I died in the game. It was a very fun game especially as a novice gamer but very simple and sometimes frustrating.
Summary: Too many side quests that had nothing to do with the story, when will one come out when the story is involved in every quest? When will we be able to visit Hogsmeade? It was ok, but the voices were obvious fakes, the camera angles were pretty bad and the audio was faulty. That being said, it is Harry Potter and it was freaking sweet to explore the castle, learn about the other things not in the movies.
Summary: I rented this game, my almost 4 year old son wanted it so I decided we'd rent it first and try it. It was too scary to play around him. I even got a little creeped out by the dementors sucking Harry Potters soul out of his body. If you have small children don't buy this game.
Good looking, true to the story, but definitely a rental.

Summary: I'm going to start off by coming right out and saying that I played the first two titles in this franchise, and enjoyed them both. I've read the books, seen the movies, and have enjoyed (for the most part) the games. So as you read this review, appreciate that I'm not coming down on Harry Potter himself, nor am I slighting the world that Rowling has created in the books, and Warner Bros. have put to the screen.
Summary: I had high expectations for this game, having been told by several people how excellent it was and that it was tailor made for an X-box virgin such as myself. I haven't played a video game in about ten years now, yet I completed this one in three days which is a little disappointing as I hoped it would be more of a challenge.
Summary: Having received this game on the day of release, we finished it the next day! The game itself is very good and being able to play with all three characters makes a nice change from the other games. However players may find that it gets very irritating when the other two characters continually get in the way or shoot you accidentally when your trying to do something.
