Product Description

In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter fans can experience the magic and peril of Harry's third year at Hogwarts. For the first time gamers will play as friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as well as Harry Potter, switching between characters and utilizing their key attributes and skills to resolve challenges and overcome enemies. The three friends will need to combine their strengths and master a variety of new spells as they face Harry's most terrifying opponents yet: the escaped convict Sirius Black and the sinister guards of Azkaban prison, the Dementors.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2 Jun 2004
By A Customer
I pre-ordered the new Harry Potter game and so far I am very pleased with the level of difficulty in the game, which makes it quite challenging in parts. For hardened gamers it may seem a bit underacheiving for a Potter title, but for ordinary people who love the series, this is a sure fire hit.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Azkabang 7 Mar 2013

This is an awesome little RPG for the GBA. My girlfriend had played the Gameboy Colour equivalents of The Philosopher's Stone and The Chamber of Secrets, so when she learnt that the developers had made a third for the GBA, she got excited and I decided to get it for her. It's actually really enjoyable and I've had a play, myself. It's an underrated gem, in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars quick n easy but fun 25 Oct 2004
I dont often complete games- usualy i get bored and move on to the next one when im half way through. I managed to finish this game in a little over 6 hours- it was that easy. i wont argue that the gameplay itself wasnt fun, it just felt like you were rushed through the game without having much of a chance to just explore. You also level up so quickly that by the time you're half way through the battles are so easy that u never need to use potions to restore health- just wait til you level again.
on the plus side- and this is a big plus, i was addicted for the whole 6 hours i played (spread over 2 days), the plot stays pretty much to the book and the graphics are great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, but far too short. 28 May 2004
By A Customer
I was very excited about this new release and so rushed to the shops and purchased a copy as soon as it was released. I returned home and i was engrossed for over an hour.
The begining of the game starts when harry gets to diagon alley and this part of the game is a refreshing new start, away from the all too similiar hogwarts in the other 2 games.
However, after an hour of great fun and satifaction it begins to wear out. There is much repetetiveness in the game play, every 10 minutes you are asked to search an enviroment for 5 missing items and you are always fighting the same monsters.
The game remains faithful to the book however and this pleased me whilst playing, however it is for this reason that you soon begin to realise you are at the end of the game in a matter of 3 hours. After a tough final boss you feel disatisfied, as if EA games spent the first month or so working extremely hard, and then got lazy towards the end.
Overall, if you are looking for a bit of Potter, buy this game from somewhere where you can return it if you are not pleased with the bland mini games that are meant keep you playing longer, wait till it's in the summer sales, when the Harry Potter rush, surrounding the movie has died down, and get a good price.
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.
