- Summary: In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry is mysteriously selected as the fourth competitor in the dangerous Triwizard Tournament. Each contestant in this international competition must confront a fire-breathing dragon, rescue friends from the icy depths of the Black Lake, and navigate the twisting mysteries of a vast, dangerous maze. Players experience all the thrills of the movie - from the Quidditch World Cup campsite to a heart-stopping duel with Lord Voldemort himself. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all playable characters, modeled after their big-screen counterparts. In this game, an all-new spell-casting system allows players to feel the magic for the first time as the controller shakes and reacts with every flick of the wand. Players can also team up with friends in co-operative play to combine their magic and produce more powerful spells than ever before. [Electronic Arts]… Collapse
ArtherB.Aug 4, 2006A good solid game. I really enjoyed it :-)
SeanC.Jan 20, 2006Once again, EA is the unfortunate sole holder of a license that actually has fans. And these fans CARE. Now, in the DS, we have the unique advantage of *two* input devices *perfect* for casting spells. Please, dear reader, humor me so that I may not seem so clever. How does one cast a spell in the world of Harry Potter? Yes, that is correct, wand motion and magic words. How might one capture such input and use it in the game? Correct again, a stylus, and a microphone. By no mere coincidence, and in fact, by *design* the DS has both devices. The potential for this game is truly squandered by being a port of the GBA game and not an adventure in which one might actually learn spells and employ them. In fact, crude voice recognition is perhaps better than perfect voice recognition, because of the sensitivity of magic in the books. If you say it wrong, the spell fizzles. While this might annoy a casual player, fans of the books, a group that numbers in the millions, would be thrilled at such an accurate recreation of that aspect. Finally, why does running and jumping have ANYTHING to do with the game? The only part of the game that ought to revolve around anything other than solving puzzles with magic (somewhat like a Myst-style adventure) would be the Broomstick-flying. Oh well, did anyone else expect EA to actually deliver on the potential of this franchise? What was JK Rowling thinking, other than $$$?… Expand
BarryF.Dec 1, 2005There is nothing great about this game compared to the GBA version. Why waste money, you buy the GBA version and can play the game on GBA and NDS!
