Summary: Overall, the game is fun, but it gets repetitive and lacks excitement. Since the plot is almost exactly the same as the movie, there are almost no surprises. Movement is primitive, and Ron and Hermione often get in your way when you're trying to walk around. Hermione appears fatter than she looked in the movie... >> Potions class is probably the most fun--you add ingredients, stir your pot and blow on the fire--but herbology is extremely boring.
Summary: I will start with the positives, of which there are several. The game is gorgeous! I really felt like I was in the HP movie. Voice acting is done by the actors who play the characters in the movie, which adds a lot to the feeling. In addition, characters are modeled on the actors, which adds a lot as well. The game itself does not take too long to play, though going for 100% (I didn't) adds considerable time.
Summary: This was a pretty good game. Better than the last HP game. But still not much replay value to it. I played it through and then sold it on ebay, I got my money back so I can't complain too much. IMO the last fun and really good HP game was Chamber of Secrets.
Summary: If you've played any Harry Potter game before, essentially the same thing. Follows a different book, but basically, learn spells, cast them, fight badguys, blahblah. Fun for a break from any mindless violence but not a great game really. 5/10, its all bland, bland music, bland graphics, bland blandness.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Xbox 360)
11 August 2009
Summary: This game was a decent game. Not overly great, but it had some good qualities to it. It held strongly to the movie's storyline and the character voices and qualities were realistic. I would recommend this game to any Harry Potter fan. I enjoyed it.
Summary: Harry Potter is back again for another adventure. Beginning of game sucked, I was like these are the graphics. This game would suck if it was based on the graphics. Luckly enough there's more to graphics. Cool little mini games to do each spell, is fun at first but may get repeative. There's also "Wizard Duels" which I think are pretty cool. I'm 30% complete with the game and I've been playing it for about 5 hours.
Summary: It's by far the best one yet but, I HATE THE CAMERA!! When you walk into a room sometimes the camera doesn't follow you right away so, you have to stop and wait for the camera to catch up with you. I don't like going through some of the same rooms over and over again. So, it's good but, try and rent it first. And on a good note...there are a lot of extras to collect and find. And I mean a lot!!!!!
Summary: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is just like walking through the movie. There's little to no Heads-up displays like health bars or whatever to get in the way of the beautiful visuals. You can do all sorts of side-quests with people like Nearly-Headless Nick and earn points to make your spells stronger. The DS controls seemed a little tacked-on, but didn't hurt the game in any way. If you love Harry Potter you HAVE to get this game!
