  1. AceGamez

    Adds real depth to familiar characters and locations.
  2. The greatest test of a licensed game is to ask yourself if the game would still be compelling without the license and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban passes with flying colors.
  3. It entertains, it excites and it's easy to follow so no need for cheats, and sometimes that is all that matters.
  4. Derivative but fun and the EyeToy support is a great bonus. Won't win over Harry-haters but fans will be willy, er, wand-waving into the wee small hours.
  5. A genuinely good third-year romp for Harry. Accomplished and absorbing, it's not quite magical but it's certainly no muggle either. [GamesMaster]
  6. 75
    Being able to explore Hogwarts as not one, but all three of your favorite characters is, as Ron would put it, brilliant. But older gamers will find little challenge in the game's simplistic block puzzles.
  7. Some scenes do not look quite right — the scale of the characters against the width of the Hogwarts Express clearly do not tally. But these minor disappointments are quickly outweighed by stunning visuals in the later levels.

    8 / 8 / 7 / 7 - 30 silver [Vol 811; 2 July 2004]
  9. It is by far the best Harry Potter game made to date.
  10. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    80
    Offers a deeper, more mature experience than the previous titles. [July 2004, p.94]
