  • Summary: In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the finalIn Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! And then there's Hermione, simmering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again. In the game, players return to Hogwarts to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year. They also have a chance to engage in exciting wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory. Players may even get sidetracked by Ron's romantic entanglements as they journey towards a dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. Harry Potter and Half-Blood Prince is a half-baked game that is almost certain to leave you with a sour taste.

    It's not that Harry Potter is broken, it's that EA has managed to take a world brimming with magic and turn it into the most tedious, mundane game possible.

    the game was well done, it follows the movie, BUT it is really a short game, this is shorter than buying a game from game fish. i finishedthe game was well done, it follows the movie, BUT it is really a short game, this is shorter than buying a game from game fish. i finished this game withinn 4 hours, could have done it faster had i not stopped. again well made fun, but not worth the money!

    A disappointing game for the psp. The console game might be better but man has EA been neglecting the psp with let downs on NBA live 09 and A disappointing game for the psp. The console game might be better but man has EA been neglecting the psp with let downs on NBA live 09 and now this. A good title let down by poor and rushed gameplay. I'm even generous enough to give this a 5. Expand

    I hoped that this game would be at least as good as the HP OOTP. BUT.. what were EA really thinking about making this game? Did they even I hoped that this game would be at least as good as the HP OOTP. BUT.. what were EA really thinking about making this game? Did they even tried? I don't think so. I do NOT recommend you to buy this game! I hope that the last sequel would be much better! Expand
