Just as the Harry Potter movies seem to be getting better with each sequel, so to the games have been improving with every new release. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire shows every sign of being the best yet with a greater emphasis on playing all the characters and not just Harry.
Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all playable (and they look like the actors from the film too) and each has their own special abilities, strengths and weakness. These can be augmented by collecting and using Collector's and Creature Cards as well, almost like a proper role-playing game.
Perhaps the games greatest draw though, other than much improved graphics, is the co-operative mode which allows you to play all the way through the game with up to two friends joining in. Therell be no arguments over who gets to be Harry either as everyone has to work together with the most powerful spells only being possible by everyone combining their powers. The spell casting itself works in a different way than before with the analogue controllers being used to move your wand around on screen--you can even feel it shake as the rumble pack of your controller kicks in.
Harry haters still wont enjoy this on principle, and to be honest its neither the most original or difficult game ever made, but for fans of the films and books it looks absolutely wizard. -- Harrison Dent

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are back! The Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire videogame will release in November in conjunction with the Warner Bros. Pictures film based on J.K. Rowling's fourth book. Experience the thrilling moments of the movie and put your magic to the ultimate test in co-operative play with up to two friends.
In the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire videogame, licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Harry is mysteriously selected as the fourth contestant in the dangerous Triwizard Tournament. Each competitor in the international competition must confront a fire-breathing dragon, rescue friends from the icy depths of the Black Lake, and navigate the twisting mysteries of a vast, dangerous maze. Players can experience the thrills of the movie from the Quidditch World Cup campsite to a heart-stopping duel with Lord Voldemort himself!
Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all playable characters, modeled after their big-screen counterparts. An all-new spell-casting system allows players to really feel the magic for the first time as the controller shakes and reacts with every flick of the wand. Gamers can team up with friends in co-operative play to combine magic and produce more powerful spells than ever before!

If you liked running around the castle, finding secret places, talking to other students and buying things from Fred and George in the other games, you will also be dissapointed.
The levels are also strange.You have to finish a level, then go back to it to collect shields, but each time you find one it will go back to the main menu and you start it again.
This game just seemed to have been rushed. you cant get into the story and you don't really have a clue whats going on.
Please, the makers of this game, bring it out again but with the game play of the last three games.
As mentioned before, theres none of the fun from the first three of exploring Hogwarts - all you get is a level select screen, of which you need to keep selecting the same one till you have enough shields to unlock the next level.
Too short, rushed, and just generally not as fun as the first 3. Take heed EA!!!
Please, please bring back hogwarts fort he next game!
