  1. The overall design and presentation is the game’s strong point and helps to make up for the fact that there isn’t a whole lot of substance underneath.

    Fans looking for a quick ride through the events of teh book and movie will be pleased with Potter GBA, because that's all it is. [Feb 2002, p.172]

    Pottermaniacs will love exploring even a 2D version of Hogwarts, but be prepared for challenging and sometimes frustrating gameplay.
  4. While visually and aurally sound, and at times impressive, Harry Potter's GBA debut is neither innovative nor particularly compelling from a gameplay perspective.
  5. 60
    The actual game design lacks the plot's originality, as it depends on basic ideas to drive the adventure for hours.

    The GBA version is less than enchanting. [Spring 2002, p.34]

    Too short, too annoying, too frustrating and repetitive. Strictly for fans of the books and movies.

Although it is addicting its effects are cartoon and un-trying. It is poorly letdown that way. I think harry Potter deserves more, but I got what I got. And for some reason, ignoring its flaws, its a great game. It flows with the Harry Potter movies and games, it carefully portrays the way Hogwarts would look like animatedly. Its excellence is profound by just enjoying it by playing it. Its one of the best games to be playing on the road. Full Review »
