Do not be put off by the old-fashioned look of the book. This is one of the best books for children ever written. The language is of its time but easily understood by six and seven year olds.

Plenty of laughter and plenty of tears are guarenteed for the reader as they emerse themselves in the conclusion (and my definite favourite) of the Harry Potter series.

You can also use the various radios as seen in the original to call in troops, locate allies etc, and of course use the other soldiers to aid you.
I bought this game expecting to get a game like Half-Life in which you enter the facility with the rest of your squad to kill aliens, scientists, security guards and possibly Freeman if you see him. I expected a feeling less like Half-Life’s ‘you against the world’ and apocalyptic storyline, instead I got the exact same… Read more
