4.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter and the School of many Secret places, 12 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PC CD) (Video Game)
When I played Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone I was somewhat disappointed by the difficult spell casting and frankly fairly confusing game play and the incessant clips and chats with other pupils. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was surprisingly refreshing. The spell casting is much easier, there are HUNDREDS of hidden places and things to find, the graphics are much fresher and brighter and, most importantly the Quidditch playing is MUCH more fun. It is far easier to control Harry than in the first game and so playing Quidditch was a most enjoyable experience. There is also optional chats with other pupils and often you can learn a great deal from them which I found to be handy on several occasions.
The castle itself is bigger and better with more places to explore in between 'lessons', more floors and more interactive features. The more lessons you attend the more parts of the castle you have access to since many require spells to be cast to access them. I loved every second of playing this game - I was thouroughly entertained the whole time, especially when I could wander where I liked instead of being MADE to go places. Of course you have to attend lessons but that is the whole point of the game and they are often much more fun. The wizard cards are WONDERFUL, and the duelling club is excellent (although you have to have learnt a certain number of spells in order to access it).
If you are browsing to buy a Harry Potter game I would thoroughly recommend this one. For more experienced game players this is light relief and reasonably entertaining with good graphics and something for everyone, for younger Harry Potter fans this is neither so difficult that they will lose interest, or too easy that they will become bored. With so much to see and do it will keep them quiet for HOURS.
Buy this game. You won't be disappointed.
