    In the game you can play for Most of the characters and it is worth noting. The authors have removed the side jobs that were getting in the last part. In general, this is a cool game with a gripping storyline.

    A nice little game. It may be short, but really captures the feeling of the film. Spell-casting feels fluid and exciting. Yes, it may be a far cry from earlier Harry Potter games, but then, the books and films at this point are much darker. Finally, we get to play as other characters from the fiction, and it really adds something special. No longer can you spam one spell and get away withA nice little game. It may be short, but really captures the feeling of the film. Spell-casting feels fluid and exciting. Yes, it may be a far cry from earlier Harry Potter games, but then, the books and films at this point are much darker. Finally, we get to play as other characters from the fiction, and it really adds something special. No longer can you spam one spell and get away with it. Having to switch spells whilst others 'recharge' makes you feel a sense of danger, and a sense of how scared Harry must be. All in all, I'd have preferred a longer game, but with the possibility of replaying sections of the game to earn more points and some beautiful world art EA have created something pretty close to the movie and fun to play.

    Rather than end with a big bang, this videogame series goes out like a damp squib. [Oct 2011, p.92]

    It's all just very basic and uninspiring. [Issue#75, p.78]
