  1. Played at leisure, though, this remains a bewitching adventure, and one that true Harry-maniacs will want to return to again and again.
  2. 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]
  4. While not as great as the console version, relatively speaking, Chamber of Secrets will certainly keep you interested - for a spell.
  5. Nearly every aspect of the game impresses, except for the airborne Quidditch matches. [Dec 2002, p.272]
  6. 78
    It is a long adventure, though, with plenty to do.
  7. 60
    While Potter fans will enjoy seeing Gilderoy Lockhart on their GBAs, uncompelling gameplay makes him just another pretty face.

    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. Expand

    It is a good game but it could be more realistic because if you sneak past someone and then walk through a door they are standing there.but overall it is a good game! Expand

    It's one of the most challenging game that anyone can play. Will keep your interested for hours. But can someone give some codes to help with some of the hard parts? Expand
