  1. Played at leisure, though, this remains a bewitching adventure, and one that true Harry-maniacs will want to return to again and again.

    Visually, it's among the best games available on the GBA, with superb animation and attractive environs. [Spring 2003, p.33]
  3. Looks great and, while it can be a bit easy, the new sneaking skills, Quidditch and card collecting make Hogwarts a fun place to be. [GamesMaster]

    The best reason to get this is the ability to link with the Gamecube version to transfer items and spells. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  5. Nintendo Power
    80
    New spells, a compelling story and tons of action-oriented puzzles. [Dec 2002, p.220]
  6. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    80
    Nearly every aspect of the game impresses, except for the airborne Quidditch matches. [Dec 2002, p.272]
  7. Cheat Code Central

    While not as great as the console version, relatively speaking, Chamber of Secrets will certainly keep you interested - for a spell.
  8. 78
    It is a long adventure, though, with plenty to do.

    Its evenly better than the movie, I didn't have to profind the idea and excellence of the game, it is fantastic from begining to end. I Its evenly better than the movie, I didn't have to profind the idea and excellence of the game, it is fantastic from begining to end. I can beat it many times and never get bored of it. As it should, it does flow with the film's and games, J.K. Rowling should be proud of this. Full Review »
