    Very poor game, there is no magic in doing chores and homework.

    The game itself was OK and the features with the wand were cool, but it was way too short and VERY predictable. Since I am a Harry Potter fan and have read the books I always knew what was coming next which ruined the game for me. Also the wii remote reacted too slow, it would be three moves behind me in a battle. Overall...not worth the time or money.

    This game was really boring when you do things for different people and just walking around.There was no magic in doing chores and homework.The good things about this game was that you can almost go anywhere in the school and that describes it more in the game than the movie.This was a very poor game and i didn't enjoy it as much as i thought it would be like.

    THIS GAME IS BAD : HARRY IS VERY STIFF TO CONTROL AND ONLY 2 OF THE BATTLE/DUELING SPELLS ACTUALLY WORK THIS GAME IS 70% FINDING AND DOING MONOTONOUS TASKS FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE D.A. 30% FIGHTING IN BROKEN DUELS YOU CANNOT WIN!! DO NOT RENT OR BUY THIS GAME!

    It is by far the most immersive journey to Hogwarts to date thanks to the realization of a truly enormous, often-beautiful world that is wholly connected without any load times and also thanks to new Wii remote controls that effectively enable you to use Nintendo's controllers as Harry's wand.

    For diehard Potter fans and those who walk away from the movie with stars in their eyes, the game will hold some value, especially in the unlockable videos and interviews with the cast and staff members of the movie and games. However, the rest of you Muggles should definitely stick to the novels and the power of your imagination to get you in a magical state of mind.

    Does the motion control work? Absolutely. Granted, casting spells with the Wii Remote isn't a perfect affair, but the interactive nature easily pushes the Wii version above the others, despite its higher-resolution console brothers.
