    Between the occasionally spotty controls, the linear quest, and the highly repetitive mini-games, only the most dedicated Potter fans need enroll this term. Oh, and it was very disappointing to find out that the final boss battle doesn't have you playing as Professor Snape. Very disappointing.
  2. There's a real lack of magic in what is essentially Harry Potter And The Half-Hearted Mini-Game Collection.
  3. The sixth movie in the Harry Potter series was a great and entertaining experience - something that can't be said about it's videogame adaptation. The core premise of the game is built around three monotonous minigames that are repeated throughout the game. The one saving grace is that the adventuring and exploring are somewhat interesting and the musical score is great.

    Kind of exciting and fun the first time, but it gets really boring after some time. I still think it is pretty good, but not worth getting unless you're a crazy harry potter fan. Full Review »

    I wasn't expecting much because of mediocre games in the past and it turned out to be maybe the worst in the series so far. The game can be explained in three words: Dueling, Potions, Quidditch. And that's it. Sure, you can explore a very authentic Hogwarts (the most enjoyable thing about the game) but these three minigames is everything else. Dueling is in it the most but it isn't very enjoyable, as you will find yourself just flailing the WIi Remote around. Also, it is pretty much impossible to die. Potions is the most fun because you actually get to add ingredients and stuff! Quidditch is just flying through hoops (in the earlier levels I just put the Wii Remote on my lap and made it through almost every ring). The game does a very bad job of translating the story and the whole experience boils down to annoying. The game has absolutely no challenge and the only multiplayer option is to duel. Go watch the movie instead of playing. Full Review »
