Don't talk to me about Quidditch...,
This review is from: Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Much of the game is walking around Hogwarts, finding objects and swapping them for other objects, such as swapping wizard cards for gobstones, then gobstones for Ginny's game, then taking the game to Ginny. There's also potion making, which is fun, and mini-games of exploding snap, gobstones and wizard skittles, all great fun too. The graphics are fantastic, very clear and detailed, and this makes the wandering around looking for various things very enjoyable. As you progress, more of Hogwarts opens up to you and you can explore further, so there's always something new coming up to look forward to as previously off limits doorways open up to reveal other parts of the castle. What really spoils it is the Quidditch, it's just too hard,it moves too fast and the the touch screen doesn't quite seem to respond fast enough to catch the snitch, and it gets really frustrating because you can't progress until you win the game... Games need to be challenging but they're still meant to be fun, right? The Quidditch lets down a game that's otherwise quite good fun, very engaging and atmospheric.
