Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix features the best digital rendition of Hogwarts Castle yet, it’s both huge and true to the films. Fans are sure to be delighted with getting the chance to explore, seeing all the familiar rooms and characters, and just generally having a jolly good time. EA have used this vast area efficiently, crafting an exploration based game out of it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix game review

Boys' Life magazine
10 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Welcome to Harry Potter’s fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Things have changed around campus. Mean old Delores Umbridge from the Ministry of Magic has taken over the Defense Against the Dark Arts classes and isn’t teaching the students how to properly defend themselves. Snape is his nasty old self, but Dumbledore is hard to find.
  • Pros: The game brings the book and movie to life with an amazingly accurate 3D Hogwarts, good likenesses of the actors, many original actors’ voices and situations from the book and movie.
  • Cons: Gameplay often feels more like a scavenger hunt on Hogwarts grounds than an adventure.

Cast magic with a Wii remote in best Potter yet.

Common Sense Media
27 September 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is available across all platforms, but is truly spectacular when played on the Wii. The always-scary Dementors do appear at the beginning of the game. Later, you duel the Death Eaters and Voldemort: Both are long, intense battles, thus triggering the E+10 rating. But the fantasy violence is a small part of this game. Instead the focus is on exploration, solving fetch tasks, and immersing yourself in the world of Harry Potter.

  • Conclusion: That said, there is enough content here to keep any Potter fan happy, and at times the game exudes enough character and charm to suggest something grander. It is good to see EA at least making the effort to provide proper fan-service this time around, and the technical merits of the game are pronounced (especially the full physics implementation in the PSP version).

  • Conclusion: Shortcuts are provided but they are of limited use and never really reduce the time taken to traipse across Hogwarts for the 100th time. The game clearly has great potential and the core elements are there. If EA can integrate the story into the game and reduce the pointless school treking, the next installment could be a real winner.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The Gamers Temple
20 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Date: 7/16/2007 One of the many faults of most games based on movies is that they stick too closely to the script. You jump from one scene in the movie to the next, always knowing what’s around each corner, without ever experiencing any of the movie magic the film generated when you saw it for the first time.

Xbox 360 Review - 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'

WorthPlaying
27 August 2007
  • Summary: In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community is in denial about the teenager's recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort, preferring to turn a blind eye to the news that Voldemort has returned.

  • Conclusion: A fun, kid oriented game about a popular book/movie. We know that the game we get is not going to be perfect, at least with this title the attempt was made to give the consumer more quality for what we pay.
