From the opening scene on the Hogwarts Express to the climactic finale on the shore of the great lake at Hogwarts, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will immerse players in the magical world of Harry Potter. Players will unravel the mystery surrounding Sirius Black and his escape from the infamous wizard prison Azkaban. Gamers will encounter a host of new characters and creatures, engage in a variety of sub-quests, fly on a Hippogriff, reveal the secrets of the Marauder's Map and take on their friends in multiple two-player challenges.

My son and I play the game alternately to see how far we can get against each other , fighting all the different monsters and trying to get each of the three characters, Harry, Hermione and Ron to increase their spell powers so they can beat the ever stronger and more powerful super monsters which are scattered throughout the game.
The graphics are not too bad and the music is far better and much less annoying than some of the other games.
The game has different slots, so should you get stuck in a part that you cannot escape from (after the shreiking shack, trying to get past a mountain troll is my personal hurdle) then you can start a fresh game rectifying all your mistakes and finding another way out of trouble.
So far the game has lived up to my expectations and I recommend it to all for a way to enjoy something that the kids will love as much as the adults.
Graphics: 5/10, worse than the first one by far. There was no difference between this and the gameboy colour versions in the past. If anything, they are worse.
Sound:2/10 Annoying tingles and tinkling jingles, for health and safety reasons regarding the public, buy some headphones.
Gameplay:6.5/10 Monotonous after an outstanding start.
Lifetime: 4/10 Actual game lasts around 3 hours, lame mini games to keep a goldfish occupied. However there is a link with the gamecube, to raise and owl.
All i can say is preorder it know before there all gone!! Read more
