    This game is simply just MEH. It's fun sometimes but most of the time it is just a big fetch job. It's mostly just you as Harry Potter running around trying to obtain items for your next task. The graphics of this game are good when not in motion but when Harry walks around they get blurry and hard to look at. Also the touch screen isn't all that good either.

    Blegh. Boring. It's basically Harry being the fetchdog of everyone in the castle and a couple of minigames. The bad doesn't stop there either. The controls are iffy at best and the loading times are such that you hesitate to check your inventory because it takes too long. The games is very short, but that isn't a bad thing in this case.

    t's not that Harry Potter is broken, it's that EA has managed to take a world brimming with magic and turn it into the most tedious, mundane game possible.
  2. With a tight release schedule, developing a game based on a movie will inevitably involve a degree of compromise, but creating a game that feels unfinished and distinctly rushed isn't acceptable.
  3. It's monotonous and lacking the exciting moments of the book and film, but you do get to play as Harry and act like a wizard in Hogwarts.
