This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PS2) (Video Game)
The first thing i thought when i loaded up this game was 'wow'. the visuals are stunning, and the sound is even better. i was unsure whether to buy the game or not, as the 1st installment of the series was aimed too much at young children. however, i'm glad i did, as not only have the developers made the game challenging for more experienced gamers, they have also kept the fun, and the magical experience of the game in. the PSone version is a completely differnet game, and made easier for the young children.
the game follows both the book and the film almost perfectly. there's new spells to be learnt, more people to see, a much wider game area, and there is even time to explore the massive castle between lessons.
the game is 5 times bigger, badder, and better than the Philosophers Stone, and goes into much more depth, including side stories, and a whole new improved quidditch game. finnaly you get to do more than just fly through hoops and tap the X button, there is more skill involved now, and harder opponants.
where the first game was for die-hard fans only, this one is a must for all gamers. even if you have never read the books, or saw the films, still buy the game, it follows the story beautifully. it is so magical, you will really believe that you are harry at some moments, it is that good.
you also wont be able to complete this game in a couple of hours, unlike the first one. it takes a good solid week with non-stop playing to tackle this, and it will be the best week of your life.
order now! it is quite easily the best game to wipe its feet on Playstations doormat, and rightly so.
