5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the Philosopher's Stone, 2 Jan. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PC CD) (Video Game)
This is the follow-up to the first game, Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone. Although there are some similarities to the first game, the Chamber of Secrets is much improved. Harry remains to know the spells from the first game and the controls are ultimately the same. The changes that have been made include making quidditch easier (thankyou, i was never very good at it!), making the spells easier to learn (you now have to press corresponding arrow keys as they appear over the spell symbol) and giving Harry alot more freedom in Hogwarts, enabling you to explore more.
The game follows the story of the book closely, which I think adds to the enjoyment of the game as a whole. Because of the added freedom, as you play this game, it really feels as though you are at the school. the time you have to explore results in being able to discover a lot more secret rooms and Wizard Cards than the original. It is due to this freedom that made me realise just how much bigger this game is than the first; I have got to the end of my first loaded game and I haven't been able to find any of the gold Wizard Cards yet, proving there is a lot I still have to discover.
A few other points of advice; this game includes a Wizard trading system for the Bertie Botts Beans, a great feature which you should make good use of. Look out for students trading Wiggentree Bark and Flobbeworm Mucous (you need these for Wiggenweld Potion - you'll lots of this for the end). Also, take part in the duelling competition and quidditch competition. On my first go, I neglected these and because of that my House Point score wasn't very high.
I have really enjoyed this game, it is very addictive, for people of all ages. Even if the first one disappointed you slightly, buy this and try it - I doubt you'll be disappointed with this one.
