  1. The PC version of the game was changed for the worse; the console versions are recommended due to their more accurate control scheme and level variety.
  2. Parents of these children will also enjoy this game--I laughed out loud more than once--but any experienced gamer will find it a transient challenge that is over much too quickly.

You can play as all three characters, it is a standard 3D action adventure where you gather items to create new inventions to overcome obstacles. It is basically really similar to the Harry Potter games, at least the first three ones. You run around, collect items, get new skills, explore surroundings to find secrets, fight bad guys ...
    The game is quite short, it is quite enjoyable, but not memorable in any way. The only slightly unique thing is the item-collecting as you actually always have a list of items that you have to gather which resembles some traditional point-and-click adventure games, making this game a real 3D action ADVENTURE game. :D

    If it actually followed the books and told the whole story, that would have been a completely different case. Unfortunately, it is just a game version of the movie. The movie was good, I liked it, even though I was not the fan of the mixing of the first three books into one story. The same goes for the game. It's a mix of everything that's quite good ... but because we've seen it many times already, it is not spectacular.

    Good game, but it has a lot of problems. It's not even comparable to the book.
    4.75 out of 10, for me.
