Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup is a title that is good enough to be in the collections of children or Potterheads, but doesn’t satisfy in enough areas to be a smart buy for the rest of us. If the game was a little more difficult and the players weren’t limited to one controllable plane, then I would say take a serious look at this one.
Summary: Split/Second is a pure adrenaline rush, that will have you saying ?Just one more quick game? repeatedly. It borrows from other racing games like Burnout, but manages to chip away its own identity. Though certain elements may feel repetitive, the whole package is crafted so sweet like junk food that you won?t care.
Conclusion: Harry Potter Quidditch is a decent attempt at creating a game out of this oddball fantasy sport. It is very squarely aimed at the kids market, which is hardly surprising considering that is the franchise's main audience. The game is a let down for older players as it is too easy and too slow.
Pros: easy controls for children and casual gamers, ties in nicely with the movies, utilises all aspects of quidditch in a neat fashion, it's HARRY POTTER!!
Cons: sluggish gameplay offers little challenge, no option to play same-team multiplayer or online play, misses out on the charm that has made Harry Potter such a hit
