  1. If you want to truly experience the Harry Potter universe I can't image having better access to it than this game. It's almost magic.
  2. With a great story and plenty to do, the replay value makes this a game worthy of a purchase.
  3. 87
    A very well done 3D adventure game filled with a fun quest, challenging puzzles and an intuitive control scheme and magic system.
  4. For Quidditch fans, there's a thrilling version of the aerial sport. [15 Nov 2002, p.144]
  5. A great game, it just doesn't break any new ground.
  6. It captures the environments of Hogwarts well and I had a blast knocking Draco Malfoy on his butt in the duel in Defence Against the Dark Arts class.
  7. Of all three games, the Xbox version is the clear winner, with perfect frame rates, the lowest load times, the best resolution and the best textures, but the 'Cube game runs a close second, a refreshing turn of events. [Jan 2003, p.76]
  8. Controlling Harry is easy enough - however, the in-game camera can be a bit rough. [Feb 2003, p.75]
  9. The game's impressive visuals on the Xbox coupled with its rich gameplay definitely make it one of the better platform games on the system.
  10. Despite little replay value, Chamber nonetheless provides a gratifying ride. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.84]
  11. 70
    If you’re a Harry Potter fan with Buddha-like patience, you’ll likely love this game.
  12. There are similarities to last year’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone game on PC, but the gameplay and environments are more refined and enjoyable.
  13. As a game for adults who have little interest in Harry's mythology and hype, The Chamber of Secret is a nice looking game which is too linear and far too easy to follow to offer any real challenge.
