    1 star1 starNo starNo starNo star    Not a Wizard Game

    So the long awaited 16th November arrived, with the release of the Harry Potter film and in the post, our pre-ordered Harry Potter ™ PC Game. Sadly, the game is a disappointment after the wonderful books and the highly acclaimed film.
    I installed it on 450MHz AMD with a Voodoo 3000 video card. The installation took a whopping 430Mb of disc space (the CD is referenced only at startup) and there is no option to run components from CD to save on disc space. Starting a new game gives a lengthy spoken introduction with elements of the Harry Potter story, lasting about three and a half minutes. Great the first time you start, but there is no way to skip the intro the next time a new game is started.
    The controls are simple - keyboard and mouse, okay for running and jumping, but not easy for flying a broomstick, even a Nimbus 2000. The linear nature of the game with stages that cannot be skipped; the limitation of saving only at pre-designated save points and the keyboard controls made it very frustrating to use. That said, the graphics are okay and add to the atmosphere. It includes easily identifiable characters from the book (that seem to be based on the actors from the film).
    I had some technical problems with Direct 3D not being selected by default, and the mouse/graphics behaved badly at first so that the initial spell-casting test was impossible, effectively blocking further progress. A reinstall fixed the latter problem.
    First impressions are that this is not a great game and likely to prove frustrating to use.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Fantastic Game - very true to the book and the film

    This is quite simply a magical game.
    I have been a big fan of Harry Potter for some time and I had been looking forward to getting the game.
    The characters and plot are based on the movie rather than the book, and the soundbytes are often then actual actors from the movie.
    The tasks set are not too difficult so as to frustrate but are sufficiently exciting and hard so as to keep you motivated throughout.
    The Quidditch is brilliant, and there is also a spin-off Quidditch league from the main menu that you can participate in if Quidditch is your preference. It takes a little getting used to being the seeker and chasing down the snitch but once you are used to it it is brilliant.
    I would recommend this to anyone who is either a fan of Harry or a fan of Tomb Raider, Indiana Jones type adventure games.
    From casting perfect spells to wheezing with the Weasley twins and avoiding Filch and Norris this game is absolutely 100%.
    I am 27 by the way, and know that kids and adults will love it alike.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Challenging and addicting

    This game is a must for Harry Potter fans. We follow Harry as he starts his first school year at Hogwarts; he meets his friends and teachers, learns spells, and fights Lord Voldemort for possession of the Philosopher's Stone.

    As this was the first computer game I'd played, it took me quite a while to figure out what to do, but it was well worth it. The scenes were all challenging and fun; although some of the speedy areas were very hard and frustrating (chasing Malfoy on broomstick and throwing crackers at him.) I enjoyed taking my time exploring every direction and talking to each character many times. The 3-D graphics are simply amazing and the characters are just like the movie and book.

    Whatever your age or gaming ability, if you're a Harry Potter fan, you'll find this game fascinating!
