rubbish but the kids will like it
what can you say, it is just like the other games - different maps, beterre graphics but it targeted at the kids and they get the parents to pay, so from a profit point of view the game works but from a game point of view it is very boring.
Harry potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban - Good or Bad?
I received this game for christmas 4 days ago, and I've already completed it. The gameplay is too short really, and could have been better with a couple of comprehensable side games (i.e. like the gnome throwing in the HP2 PS2 game). The graphics are spectacular, especially in the cut scenes. The lip-sync is spot on, and at some points it was hard to tell whether Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson were voicing them themselves.
Instead of just having cut scenes play through the end Whomping Willow - Shreiking Shack parts was dissapointing. A nice long battle with an enraged super-natural tree would have rounded off the bank holiday weekend nicely.
There also should have been time spent with free time to explore the castle without the 3 main characters moaning they're tired all of the time. This only occurs at the end, and then there's people all over the place getting in your way.
Also, no visit to Hogsmeade (Into the actual village) which was a pity because I really wanted to see how EA games interpreted the preety village shown in the film
Overall, not a bad effort. HP2 was a little more expansive, but HP3 exells the prliminary episodes in graphics, sound and surroundings. There really is nothing like seeing poisonous Doxys from the back of an airbourne Hippogriff.
Maybe a rent before buy title though, if you play games with the motive to complete them as fast as possible.
