    If you were ever looking for a Harry Potter-themed shooter, this is your game. Otherwise, it's just too different from the other games: No more riddles, no more sneaking, and only four hours of gameplay. Ouch.

    The Harry Potter videogames saga comes to an end with a fun third person shooter in which you'll use your magic wand in a lot of different ways. The game is sincerely enjoyable, but it's also way too short and simple.
  3. Fun while it lasts, but you can finish the whole game before your bottle of Butterbeer gets flat.

    This third person shooter is a pure action game, with no adventure or exploration elements like in previous Harry Potter games. No problem about that, but the result is still very repetitive and short (about 4 hours of gameplay). The fans will still be glad to find the young sorcerer and his friends well modeled in 3D. It is a faithful adaptation, but not a good game.

    The Harry Potter film tie-ins end on a low note with this short, tedious, and conceptually vapid cover shooter.

    Another lazy cash-in. [Sept 2011, p.64]

    Its is too different from the other games. Ever since DH P1, this game did not deserve to have any critical acclaim. Moving on to a tps isIts is too different from the other games. Ever since DH P1, this game did not deserve to have any critical acclaim. Moving on to a tps is just dumb and boring. I loved Harry potter for the way it was (g ame) but this was just too shocking. The developers though "Oh people love shooting so let's make one for Harry potter!" Most disappointing game ever. Don't buy this if you loved previous games. Expand
