Amazon.co.uk Review

Just as the Harry Potter movies seem to be getting better with each sequel, so to the games have been improving with every new release. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire shows every sign of being the best yet with a greater emphasis on playing all the characters and not just Harry.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all playable (and they look like the actors from the film too) and each has their own special abilities, strengths and weakness. These can be augmented by collecting and using Collector's and Creature Cards as well, almost like a proper role-playing game.

Perhaps the games greatest draw though, other than much improved graphics, is the co-operative mode which allows you to play all the way through the game with up to two friends joining in. There’ll be no arguments over who gets to be Harry either as everyone has to work together with the most powerful spells only being possible by everyone combining their powers. The spell casting itself works in a different way than before with the analogue controllers being used to move your wand around on screen--you can even feel it shake as the rumble pack of your controller kicks in.

Harry haters still won’t enjoy this on principle, and to be honest it’s neither the most original or difficult game ever made, but for fans of the films and books it looks absolutely wizard. -- Harrison Dent

OK, let's face it, the two previous Harry Potter games, the Chamber of Secrets and the Prisoner of Azkaban, weren't the best games ever. However, I enjoyed them very much because they were different to most games and, in my opinion, really captured a lot of the atmosphere and magic of the Harry Potter world that has become so beloved since I received the first book for Christmas eight years ago. This instalment, I'm sorry to say, lacks that.
The last two games followed the style of Harry and his friends' school year at Hogwarts, comprised of levels that were in fact school days. Although the whole year only added up to about 6 or 7 days, I thought it was a great idea. On each day you would have different things to do, which were often linked to the plot of the story but were also often lessons where you could learn new spells or extra plot strands that bear no resemblance to anything in the books, but were added to increase the games' lengths. Once you'd finished your lessons, you were free to explore the whole of Hogwarts and its grounds to find secret areas and rewards. Unfortunately, this new game appears to have scrapped all that.
Now, the game comprises of separate levels that are accessed by a main menu, each of which generally consist of Harry, Ron and Hermione fighting magical monsters to find stuff that will unlock the next level. Once you've got to the end, you go back to the menu, but if you haven't got enough rewards, you have to go back and replay the level so you can progress.
The game-makers have called this a 'compelling rewards-system', but I call it a waste of time. This isn't Harry Potter!

I got this game this week having enjoyed playing the previous two Harry Potter games, and if you want my advice is keep your money in your pocket!! This is awful!! Boring, un-inspiring. When you play this you kind of think "What is the point?".
One of the worst games I have ever bought!!

I am refusing to even complete it as i really do not enjoy gameplay! I loved exploring and being able to work things out but this game is frustrating. It takes a while to get used to the card things your supposed to collect and use and the set timeline means you cannot choose where to go or how to get there. Also whilst finding the shields if you pick up the large one before all the little ones your taken out of the level which is really annoying as you have to redo it. You have no control really over which spells to use so its not a challenge trying to work it out. Overall a terrible game for people who liked the other hp games. Definately would not recommend it!

In a word Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for the PS2 is a disappointment.
The basic idea of the game is to complete several levels and collect 'shields' to enter the Triwizard Tournaments. You access these levels by a 'pensieve' which works as a menu. Harry, Ron and Hermione go through these levels defeating monsters and collecting beans.
There is no exploring Hogwarts and the Grounds between levels collecting wizard cards and finding secrets. There are no lessons, there is very little story and no side-quests.
The loading screen seems to take forever just to enter a level, when you know you'll have to leave and redo it again ten minutes later to get the shields you missed.
The multi-player is a nice addition, allowing you to play with up to two friends and you can spend beans to buy cards which you equip to your characters to make them stronger. However, playing with friends during the game can be troublesome, particularly when they get stuck around a corner and you have to backtrack to help them out and if you don't play with friends, the AI characters that follow you around do more damage to your progress then help.
Most of the cards you buy have duplicates, so that you might have five Stamina +10 cards for one character, when there are only three slots for equipping cards.
The graphics have improved considerably, which is probably why it takes so long to load, but the overall look is very rushed.
The length of the game is incredibly short, compared to most games and HPCoS and HPPoA for PS2. It is also very easy, which makes the game twice as short as it could be. The end task against Voldemort is finished within minutes, afterwards you see the ending and think, 'Was that it?'.

I loved the first Harry Potter games, but this has the feel of something rushed out to cash in on the film release dates. Considering that book 4 should be the most exciting in terms of action and visual design this is shameful. Boring levels, glitchy camera angles, and far too linear in it's game play. The strength of the earlier games was the ability to explore the castle and grounds, this is just far too repetitive. You can finish the game in less than a day, if you ignore the frankly rubbish mini games. It's a shame, because the characters look better, now matching the actors from the films, but the graphics in general should have been better developed. Save your hard-earned. I wouldn't even buy this on Platinum.
