Summary: I expected better. The controls are terrible. Also, for as big as the Harry Potter Franchise is, it seemed like they put very little time and effort into this game. I guess it is technically a free-roaming game, but it's not a very good one.
Summary: This game is too hard. Several people in the household tried and and we can't figure it out. We walked around and around and still didn't know what to do. I don't understand why this had to be so hard.
Summary: In short, this is a sub par video game. For a Harry Potter fan, it is exciting for the first few hours of gameplay, but quickly becomes repetitive and boring. The story line is short and take only a few hours to complete. This is NOT a game that you will be hooked playing for several weeks.
Summary: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for Nintendo DS looks great on the game website. Being a huge HP fan, I purchased this game for my 11 year-old son. He was looking forward to playing the game. Unfortunately, it does not live up to his expectations.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Nintendo DS)

Summary: I have enjoyed all the Harry Potter games, but this one is at the bottom of the list. The concept of your stylist moving like a wand was fun and a new twist, however the game was lacking in adventure. Not as many tasks to complete and by far not challenging.
