  1. It's a shame really as EA could have done a whole lot better. The control system could be a lot better, the animation could be better and the cut-scenes could be better.

    I have to say that this game has probably the second best designed Hogwarts in the whole series with the castle being really large and faithful to the movies but on the other hand it is WAY too large and it is not fun to search for every hidden secret like it was in the first three games because it takes forever in this game.
    Also, the major part of the game play revolves around doing fetch quests to gain members for the Dumbledore Army. These quests are all pretty boring and because they require you to run from one place to another, doing some sort of a short jumping sequence or something else that's largely unimaginative and then running back, followed by running somewhere else again, doing something little and running back and repeating this for like 28 times or so, you can imagine the level of BOREDOM yourself.
    Summary: Great looking castle, super repetitive and boring gameplay.

    An exellent exellent game that perfectly recreates Hogwarts. It's also faithful to the book, you can play as Sirius and Dumbledore in theAn exellent exellent game that perfectly recreates Hogwarts. It's also faithful to the book, you can play as Sirius and Dumbledore in the ministry level that's another 2 points for it, the exploring and the free roam in this game are the best of the series, maybe a little repetitive but not boring at all, pure fun, good graphics, the only thing that i don't like is that Snape's worst memory is not shown, overally it deserves a 9/10, but i think i can give it 10/10, AMAZING WORK.
