NOT an Awful Game, Sorry!
on 20 July 2007
I had to do a follow up to the 'awful review' because i dont think its deserved. Okay, its not the greatest game ever made and its no Resident Evil, but if you dont want to go around hanging up paintings, fixing things, etc. you dont have to! These are just sub missions to the game which increases its life span. Otherwise the game probably would be over quite quickly. There is alot of running about in the game when you have to build up Dumbledor's army and get 28 people to the room of requirments, which can get quite boring (hence the little sub-missions of repairing things and actually doing something rather than just running around) but with most of the kids, you have to do a little mini quest, so i found it entertaining enough.
Plus, there are bonuses to doing these pointless tasks, because you become a stronger wizard level and also unlock special bonus videos of the makers and some of the film cast talking about the game. Then again it is quite fun using your wii-mote as a wand anyway
I think its a good game to buy if your a younger gamer or really enjoy harry potter because i think this is the best film-to-game made so far for the wii, especially when you consider Spider Man 3, POTC 3, Silver Surfer were all pretty poor.
Its received good reviews of around 75% from gamespot and similar websites so it isn't a pile of crap.
If your debating whether to buy it, just give it a quick rent or borrow if from a mate.
+ Good Voice Acting
+ No Loading Screen, Just 1 Constant Flow
+ Graphics are good (for wii anyway)
+ The Castle is exactly like from the film
+ Best Game based on a film on the WII
+ Use your remote as a wand!
+ The Camera Angle comes back on you so you may be finding yourself running the wrong way.
+ Lots of running around
+ Quite short if you do not do the sub missions
