Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

It was no surprise that the first Harry Potter games were a huge success, but what was unusual was that they were actually pretty good. Millions of fans will be pleased to hear that the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets game is even better.

Taking its visual and audio cues from the movies but sticking closer to the book than a two-hour film ever could, the PS2 game begins as Harry starts his second year at Hogwarts despite an ominous warning from Dobby the House Elf. At its heart Chamber of Secrets is a 3-D platform game, similar to Super Mario or Jak & Daxter, with the same basic controls being used for the majority of the game. However, the nature of the story means the game is peppered with various mini-games and side quests, including Quidditch and Wizard duels.

In between the major quests you get a chance to explore Hogwarts, which is impressively massive and filled with hidden secrets--the collecting of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans being of particular importance since they can then be traded with Ron's brother for everything from Famous Witches and Wizards Cards to upgrades for your Quidditch kit.

If the game has only one fault it's the extremely long and unusually frequent loading screens that keep popping up, and which you soon get very tired of seeing. It's not nearly enough to ruin the game though, which must go down as one of the best book/movie conversions of all time. --David Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent action adventure/platform game 2 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This is an action adventure in the Tomb Raider/Indiana Jones mould albeit based on the Harry Potter book/film.
My wife and I have not seen the films or read the books yet though this game has prompted us to read the books and no doubt we will watch the films too.
I have been playing computer games for about 20 years wheras my wife has not played for many years and is very much a novice. Nevertheless we have both been captivated by this game. It is not a hugely difficult game although there are some demanding parts,
The graphics are excellent as is the atmospheric music & effects.
It isn't perfect (there are few games which are). The camera angles can be a bit disorientating sometimes especially when you are frantically shooting spells at poisonous spiders! Also the save points are few and far between which in some ways is good because you are not able to save every few seconds (which is very lazy gaming indeed!) but on the other hand there is a long way to go before you can turn your x-box off!! Having said that, if you do get killed, you only get put back to the start of the particular room you are in, not the last save, and also anything you achieved before you were killed remains done.
A splendid family game and the best and most enjoyable movie tie in I have seen since Ghostbusters!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game but..... 22 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This IS a good game for the Xbox, graphics are nice, ambience is good, backgrounds excellent. Gameplay ok, puzzles are not too bad to solve but here is the but! THE CAMERA ANGLES STINK! I bought this for my daughter and she has given up in disgust, there is no jump control you just jump automatically when needed, usually this happens when you are not directly following Harry and you miss the target of your jump, this can be extremely frustrating when you have to do the same puzzle so many times when the reason for you having to repeat the task is completely out of your control.

1.0 out of 5 stars bad quality of the disc 29 May 2014
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
As soon as the game started, everything on the game was too slow! Every time a character speaks, i have to wait about 5 minutes so everything can catch up with itself. Also, a message keeps appearing saying the disk is dirty or damaged and ive only just had it delivered! Was looking forward to playing this game, and the quality of the disc has ruined it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Game did not work 16 Dec 2012
By Phe90
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Game worked when I first popped it in to check it was working so put it to one side to finish playing another game, but when I went to play this game, it froze about 10 mins into gameplay. Which is a shame because I bought the philosopher's stone from zoverstocks and it worked fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only Buy for the ORIGINAL console. 7 Dec 2012
By Hayden
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game because I already have it for the game cube. I liked it before but wanted a nostalgia trip so i bought it
knowing it would would on my xbox 360, though it's laggy, really slow, the levels don't load and the graphics are awful.
I think I'll stick to my game cube version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cm Wright 14 Feb 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I just finished this game and after loving the 3rd harry potter game for the xbox, I was really suprised to find that i enjoyed this one a whole lot more. The graphics were so much better! I really liked it because of the consistency with the graphics. I would really recommend it. The Quidditch especially is fun but still at the same time challenging. It's kinda scarey at some bits but that could just be me!

Being a game based on the best selling book and the film of the same name, it just a shame that the graphics are not upto the par of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Read more
