Harry Potter hits a home run,
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PC CD) (Video Game)
The PC game of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is radically different from, and vastly more enjoyable than, the game console versions of the game. Whilst the game isn't as big as the PS2 version, its gameplay is superior.
The emphasis is on exploration and problem solving, rather than the tedious prefect-avoiding, spell-confusing nonsense of the console game.
The controls and general set up are similar to the Philosopher's Stone game but generally better (although I'm one of the few who preferred the "learn the spell" version in Philosopher's Stone). Quidditch is better - it's actually fun! Wizard duelling is also a nice addition although too easy (the console version is equally too easy to become Number 1)
There's a stronger narrative from the film version than the last game, so those who've seen the film (or read the book) will recognise what's coming.
All in all a very highly recommended PC game. well done EA!
