Summary: Although not a relatively long game, it is pretty fun to play for couple hours if you're into Harry Potter. Unfortuantly the only good thing is the story line, with the "challenges" being just specific points from the campaign that you have to compete in online(rather worthless). Overall, an okay game if your a Potter head.
Summary: A better game than the last one. Camera and controls are great. Lots of spells to use. However, the game is way too short. I wish it was a bit longer. A nice ending to the Harry Potter gaming series.
Summary: This game is good overall, but whether is comes to the graphics and the repetitive gameplay, the game gets 3 stars. The graphics are as if someone rubbed mud textured paint on the faces of the characters. Though, the game closely resembles the movie. The game is a mix of Call of Duty and The Harry Potter Franchise. Every turn there is spells coming your way, it got quite annoying. You should look forward to Ginny's level, very Fun. Possibly the best part in this game.

Summary: I loathed Part 1 with a passion. The controls were clunky and largely unresponsive, the graphics, save for a few character models, were muddy and poorly textured, and the gameplay was rudimentary at best with ridiculous and repetitious side missions that did nothing more than to give the player the illusion it was more varied than it really was.
Summary: I must admit I was more pleased with this game than DH Part 1, simply because it's not a constant round of attacks from Death Eaters. This does feel like you're part of the story and the graphics are great. My only problem with this game is that it was over far too quickly. I'd finished it within 3 hours. All in all though it was a good game and not too taxing.
Summary: I thought this game was going to be great because I am a huge fan of Harry Potter but when it came (it came in an okay time) I found that your not really playing Harry Potter and it has meaningless and quite boring battles where enemies randomly appear. I also found it really annoying because sometimes the characters voices would sound like the real ones and other times they sound nothing like them.
Excerpt: The novelty factor of running around a stunning castle, listening to a sweeping and engaging soundtrack and casting spells like there's no tomorrow are the only things saving this game from being genuinely bad. It's far too short, for one thing. I kid you not, it took me about four hours to complete this game - and I collected "all" the collectables. It's also very repetitive.
Despite the samey gameplay this is an experience that any Harry Potter fan will enjoy

Summary: When I bought this game I didn't expect too much after the abomination that was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Admittedly there have been a number of improvements but this game is still far from perfect. The gameplay is a third-person style shooter where you get to play as not just Harry but as other key characters in the story. However, the lack of variety is a major downfall as all of levels have a samey feel.
