  1. A very entertaining game and an extremely good effort from Electronic Arts. Unfortunately, the problems such as the jerky camera, Ron and Hermione getting in the way and nonsensical lack of save points between missions do bring the gameplay down somewhat.
  2. The game might look and feel right but thanks to some glitches and gameplay features that just don’t work, this is not Harry’s finest moment.
  3. If you're fully under Potter's spell, though, a few dodgy viewpoints won't ruin the magic. [Sept 2007, p.116]
  4. If you want to try the game rent it first and see if you like it before you buy it. Then again, if you’re a hardcore Potter fan with a PSP then this game is definitely worth picking up.
  5. 55
    This is strictly for Potter fans that love the source material so much they can overlook glaring problems, such as dull fetch quests, in order to get some extra face time with their hero.
  6. Dogsbody fetch-and-carry wizardry that will only appeal to forgiving Potter fans. Hogwash for the rest of us.
  7. The video game version of Order of the Phoenix captures none of the magic of the Harry Potter books or films.
  8. There's no magic in this Harry Potter game.
  9. The terrible frame rate, frustrating navigation, and bland gameplay result in a title that only the most diehard fans of Harry Potter should play. If you’ve got another system besides PSP, do yourself a favor and pick up the far superior home console version instead.
  10. 40
    That rushed feeling permeates through the entire game.
  11. If you're a huge fan of Harry Potter and desperate for the latest game in the series, you're best going with the Wii version and avoid this mess.

    This is game will appeal most to Harry Potter fans wanting to experience another adventure from the series. For people wanting a challenging game with lots of action should look elsewhere. The loading time and camera faults will be outweighed by a brilliant Hogwarts campus that fans of the books will enjoy. Potter addicts could spend hours simply wandering around the Castle and grounds. A must for Potter fans. Full Review »
