    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    This is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    this is a really good game for hp fans and non hp fans there bare great 3d effects around hogwarts and when you are fighting the troll it is real hard and I mean it.



    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Definitely the best Potter game to date

    This was a very enjoyable game. It is based on the same castle as used in Chamber of Secrets, but with some differences. For example, you no longer need any special spells to use the main secret passages, allowing you to explore/use these from the beginning. Also, instead of simply going into a classroom and seeing what chests are there, there is a puzzle element to relealing these chests - different in each room, which is quite nice.

    The variety of spells is quite good, if slightly samey to players of previous games, and the puzzle element is excellent.

    On the negative side, you have no access to the Quidditch pitch in this game (although you do have to play a single game of Quidditch) - there is a disappointing lack of flying challenges available. On the other hand the flying sim seems much better, and you can go through archways, and through passages without banging your head on the ceiling! You can also fly at night, once you (eventually) get your broom.

    Another minus point is that there is still no mechanism for skipping cut scenes - not so much a problem first time through the story, but very irritating when you have returned to a save.

    There are one or two tedious bits, but nothing in comparison to the previous Potter games. On the whole, this is a good game, but if you already have Chamber of Secrets, it's not worth the money atm - wait till the price drops, or buy it second-hand.



    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Surprisingly good

    If you've read the description on Amazon (as of 18 December this was unchanged) have no fear: they're wrong. This game is not the PS1 version upgraded, it's a completely different game and worth the money.

    Using the same background as Chamber of Secrets, the graphics are crisp and clear and the game enjoyably playable. The spell challenges are challenging enough without being too complicated for younger players, and the monsters are suitably monstrous, and some quite difficult to defeat. The story is, of course, essentially the one from the book, adapted to a game, but it is only in this that the new game resembles the PS1 version.

    In short, it's lots of fun for HP fans.
