  • Summary: Harry, Ron, and Hermione are back in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a game based on J.K. Rowling's fourth book. The game follows Harry, the wizard-in-training, as he confronts a fire-breathing dragon, rescues friends from the icy depths of the Black Lake, and navigates the twisting corridors of a maze. As Harry, Ron, or Hermione, you can cast a variety of spells in both single-player and cooperative modes. Expand

  1. A great leap forward for the Potter franchise, and a fun and inclusive gaming experience. [Jan 2006, p.107]
  2. Series fans will find a lot to love in this title, which offers an attractive, immersive, and most importantly, fun excursion into the world of J.K. Rowling's imaginative works.
  3. While it could have had more movie/book elements tied into the gaming experience, the existing game is fun enough.
  4. Nothing more than a bunch of minigames that suffer from an awkward camera system. [Dec 2005]
  5. In the end, GoF is an action game aimed specifically at younger players. There's simply not enough diversity to keep a more seasoned gamer entertained for long periods of time.
  6. Somewhat annoyingly, the game often requires you to tackle each level a multiple number of times in order to collect items such as shields before the next area is unlocked.
  7. An unbelievably lazy title that just feels cheap. It has poor gameplay that the target audience will just fall asleep at, which only adds to the infuriating realisation that it will still sell thanks to the lightning scarred teen's name.
