    Potter fans will love this game and anyone hankering for a decent action/adventure that we haven't seen since American McGee's "Alice" may just find this will hold them over until Mr. McGee's next big release.
  2. The console games have more detail and are curiously a little more humorous than the PC version with some additional activities taking place, but even after all that, we enjoyed it immensely.
  3. Clare (aged 10) says: I like the game a lot. Jumping over big gaps or on to moving things is a bit hard so I turned on auto jump, which made it a lot easier. Learning spells is pretty easy.

    A greater challenge wouldn't have hurt, but this is a fun game.
  5. Whether roaming the halls of Hogwarts, or stepping into the options to play a Quidditch match, the game does have entertainment at its heart.
  6. It may be a little short for some - you'll probably finish it in under 10 hours - but god kows there are worse licensed games. [Feb 2003, p.77]
  7. For the child around you, or the child within you, and any fan of the Potter series, Chamber comes highly recommended.
  8. Harry Potter may posses a certain charm that transcends the generation gap, but don’t expect this game to weave the same magic.

    The greatest game of all time. No exceptions. While the game isn't as long and the castle not as extensive as in the console versions, the PC version makes up for this with mood, atmosphere and sheer fun. You want to finish the game, which I did not find to be the case in the console versions. Not only do you want top finish the game, but play it again and again and again... superb. 14 stars.
