  • Summary: In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community has been denied the truth about the teenager’s recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable Headmaster,In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community has been denied the truth about the teenager’s recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, is lying about Voldemort's return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students. But Professor Dolores Umbridge's Ministry-approved course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces threatening them and the entire wizarding community, so at the prompting of his friends Hermione and Ron, Harry takes matters into his own hands. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves "Dumbledore’s Army," Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead. With the ability to play multiple characters, including Harry Potter, Dumbledore and Sirius Black, the videogame of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix offers fans the opportunity to wield a wand, explore all around Hogwarts, and experience one of the most exciting and dangerous years in the life of the Boy Who Lived.

    Excellent recreation of Hogwarts. [Sept 2007, p.80]

    A surprisingly entertaining and rewarding experience. Amazing, I know. [Sept 2007, p.54]
  3. It almost seems as if those virtual barriers we often find in video games have disappeared in this game, as if magic had taken over and made this game endless.
  4. Order of the Phoenix is the first movie game of the year that would be considered solid for a game, period. For a movie tie-in, it's spectacular.

    Die-hard Potter fans will thrill throughout to checking Hogwarts' huge and detailed environs, but Order of the Phoenix's repetitive gameplay will make many wish someone would cast an Avada Kedavara spell in their direction and put them out of their misery already. [Oct 2007, p.66]
  6. PC Gamer UK
    51
    Hacky port that bleongs on consoles. [Sept 2007, p.80]
  7. It's a shame really as EA could have done a whole lot better. The control system could be a lot better, the animation could be better and the cut-scenes could be better.

    Качество игр после третьей части упало, но в целом, добавилось огромное количество новых механик, за это можно и "8" влепить.Качество игр после третьей части упало, но в целом, добавилось огромное количество новых механик, за это можно и "8" влепить.

    I'm a Wizarding World fan. When the game was released, I loved it for the Hogwarts design. If you've just watched movies and love them. Get this game to see Hogwarts.

    If you're a book fan, and hate movies then don't get it. Or maybe get it for the music.

    Graphics is quite ok.

    Spell casting is solved in very interesting way that I like - BUT!. However the problem is that camera is totally broken thanks to this casting solution, because you can not control that (I do not really know why, when you have to press left or right button).

    AI is really dumb and you fight with characters that are blocking your way pretty often (and they have no real impact on the game).

    I am not even talking about a movement itself. "You will totally love doors" (end of sarcasm). Let's talk about targeting - you move by wasd, cast by mouse and target by arrows - so if you have 3 arms you will have no problem with that.

    And a last and the worst thing about this game - linear and repetitive story telling (producers never saw that book) with broken navigation system. 3/10
