Newt Scamander and his Beasts
Newt Scamander is a Magizoologist who has been traveling the world to find and document magical creatures, hoping to educate the wizarding world about why they are important and need to be protected. In his travels, he has rescued a wide variety of beasts, great and small, which he keeps in a case that magically provides more than enough room for the menagerie he cares for and protects. Newt is an outsider, a bit awkward, and more comfortable with creatures than his fellow wizards and witches. Hailing from England, he was once a student at Hogwarts but was expelled for endangering human life with a beast. Yet there was one professor who fought for him, a certain Albus Dumbledore. No one could have imagined then that Newt would someday write one of Hogwarts’ most important textbooks: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The mischievous Niffler is small, furry and black with a long, rounded snout, making it look like a cross between a mole and a duck-billed platypus. With an irrepressible predilection for anything glittery, this burrowing but remarkably fast and agile little beast will snatch or steal whatever shiny object catches its eye. The Niffler stores its treasures in the pouch on its belly, which holds considerably more than seems possible. Though gentle and even affectionate, the Niffler can be quite destructive in its pursuit of sparkly things, so, word to the wise: they do not make good house pets.
The sprig-like Bowtruckle can be immensely difficult to spot in a natural environment as it is not only very small but also can easily blend into any foliage. It is a maximum of eight inches in height and appears to be made out of a tree stem with roots, tiny leafy _branches and two brown eyes. Newt has at least six of these little beasts—named Pickett, Titus, Finn, Poppy, Marlow and Tom—though he can’t help but play favorites with Pickett, whom he keeps safe in his breast pocket. The Bowtruckle, which eats only insects, is a peaceable and intensely shy creature.
The Thunderbird is a large, regal avian creature native to the arid climate of Arizona. Its head is similar to that of an eagle or, in the wizarding world, a Hippogriff. Its multiple powerful wings shimmer with cloud- and sun-like patterns and their flapping can create storms. Thunderbirds can also sense danger. After rescuing a Thunderbird from traffickers in Egypt, Newt named him Frank and promised to return him to his natural habitat in Arizona. Sadly, one of Frank’s legs bears the wounds of having been chained, but his gratitude to Newt for having rescued him is evident.

Also, it is very easy on Nintendo DS, so you might be able to complete it in a short time.
The game also contains fun mini-games and a little feature called 'Care of Magical Creatures' where you get to look after one of Hagrid's Nifflers, a bit like the game Nintendogs!
My favourite level, however, has to be the Yule Ball. It's a bit like a dance mat, but when the picture of a button passes the green bar in the middle, you have to press that button PERFECTLY in time. It is quite hard, but it's still very fun.
Also there are 10 other VERY long levels which are a tiny bit challenging sometimes but you get the hang of what you have to do quickly.
Here is what I think the ratings of the parts of the game are:
You might think why I gave the graphics 8/10. This is because sometimes, you might have what the game calls a '3-D Magical Encounter'. When this happens, the graphics immediately become A LOT more sharp and you get to use the Touch Screen.
Basically, I think you should get this game as quick as possible. It always throws away my boredom and puts me in a high mood. Buy it.
I was pleasantly therefore surprised by this Nintendo DS game. It was enjoyable and I didn't spend all my time completely frustrated by a lack of progress in the game. You can play as any of the three characters for each section though once you've made your choice for the level you can't change your mind part way through. The controls are easy to use and understand and it does some justice to JK Rowling's creation.
Obviously no game ever gets it completely right but this has lots of little side games that you can unlock along the way and you can help care for your very own Niffler. Again the objective of each level is to win Wizard cards and in this game the Triwizard Shields.
I have to say that this is a good game for anyone wanting something fun but not too challenging or furstrating.
Good entertainment and one that I would heartily recommend!
I have never found a game which is full of bugs and glitches, but this takes the biscuit! The story jumps and having seen and read all the harry potter films and books, i felt lost. The opening was okay as it showed you what to do, but the touch screen, unless facing a creature or checking out wizarding cards, is not really used which is a shame. The friend call is useless because when i was in the forest and trying to lift heavy objects, the others would simply stand around as if ignoring me, no matter what character i was,but would eventually answer my call or do it without being asked, and sometimes did it when they wern't needed! When facing the first fire crab, i had to do it loads of times because when a spell had to be cast by the three of them, the first time, it wouldn't work, so i had to switch it off. Next, my "friends" wouldn't help which meant i had to turn it off again, third time it worked and when the shell was used as a bridge, i thought you had to put it on the three coloured stones, so we cast a spell together. Well, i say we, because it wasn't all of us. Infact, ron got in the way and refused to budge of it, and when trying to break the spell, i couldn't, so off it went again. The next two times, the spell wouldn't work on the fire crab and my "friends" abandoned me, then the spell worked, got to the coloured stones, where it went to a cut scene, but nothing happened. So when i finally got out of the forest, another cut seen, which jumped again, and suddenly, you're playing the first tri-wizard challenge! I am curently on the this and after five minutes of jumping the same logs and going past the same scenery, i switched it off and have not played it since!
I'm so glad i played it before giving it to my sister because i would not want her to be dissapointed christmas morning. The music is the same as the fifth but in my opinion, it sounds worse, the enemies are easy to beat (after facing the same creature for the fifth time, i knew what spell to use in battle and knew their attacks, which means the other spells go to waste as their not as effective), and nothing seems to work. Usually, i wouldn't stop playing a game, but this is one of the first games i don't ever want to go back to (even though the fifth was bad, it still had some replay factor) and i will be trading it in the next time i go to town for something i know my sister will love. I'm dissapointed with this game and recommend you not to get it!
