In “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defences’ and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.
Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Firstly, the duelling is great. In fact, I would give it 5/5. But the rest of the game is not as much fun. The activities are very similar (brewing potions begins to get annoying after you've done a few). A lot of the time you just watch cut scenes as the story unfolds and then you are told exactly what to do and when. They are clubs you can join but you seem to spend most of the time following other people. Hardly captures the character of Harry does it?
The graphics are very good and it has a polished if slightly rushed feel. I think a little more time could have gone into the storyline side - give Harry more freedom and choice.
Overall, not a disaster. Great bit of fun, but over priced I think. Try to spend less that £20 and you might enjoy it.
It is very boring, you spend most of your time trying to find your way around the incredible complicated castle. There is no map to help you all that you can do is summon Nearly Headless Nick to lead you to wherever you want to be - which is annoying as this means you either opt to attempt to explore the castle and find your own way only to find yourself completely lost or you get led by the hand to the door of the place you need to be.
The gameplay is very dull just leading you from one simple task to the next. Whenever there is an interesting bit it cuts to video and you just get to sit and watch the action unfold.
The duelling requires no skill and the game can be completed simply by clicking manically whenever a duel is required.
There are no side tasks whatsoever except for collecting shields which isn't half as much fun as collecting Bertie Bott's Beans was. Playing this game just made me yearn for the fun, excitement and challenge of the earlier games in the series.
A complete waste of money. Instead watch the film and then buy either Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (PC CD) or Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PC CD)which were both excellent.
Besides the excellent scenery graphics there are other good things to do. Even when the story is finished you can still make potions, duel and collect shields. Having finished the game I only have 43 out of 150 shields so I guess I should soldier on. It would however have been more of a challenge I think if moving on to the next stage of the story required a certain level of achievement in these side tasks.
Harry Potter fans will enjoy this but it could have been so much better.
I'll tell you why! Why does everyone love Harry Potter? Well for me it's the fact it's a completely different world from our own. You know, quidditch, potions, spells, a huge archaic looking school! Well, in this videogame you get to experience all of that. You can walk around Hogwarts - even in classrooms you will not even have any use with, you can go to potions class, cast spells and have duels - all with the actual story running through too!
Why this beats all the others:
Let's face it. No matter how much we love the first one for it's nostalgic value - the graphics cannot be compared to this. In this Hogwarts looks as it appears in the films unlike the first videogame (this is natural, as this type of graphic technology had not advanced). And instead of little random challenges you got in the first few - the challenges here have all actually been seen in the films! Now why is it better than the seventh and eighth? Well...the graphics get even BETTER in those even though the graphics in here and still outstanding, but the truth is - they are dull. They don't stick to the actual story and both videogames just entail fighting death eaters. So you're basically just clicking the mouse button (for P.C.) again, and again, and again, and again. I think I read somewhere before that what's actually ironic is that J.K. Rowling states that Harry always fights for a reason and the fact he is just attacking death eaters continously (although they are the baddies) - the story is lost and it just becomes a Hollywood-ised sham.
So if you want to feel part of the Harry Potter world - you know what to click. Although I don't know why it's so expensive right now. Hmm...
I really enjoyed the last harry potter game, even when you'd finished the story part of the game, there was still enough fun left through mini-quests and exploring to keep you entertained. In this game however, once you've finished the story part, all you have left is walking around hogwats collecting mini-crests and crests (... lets just say that its boring and there is no point in doing so!) or you can go and duel or make potions, which sounds pretty cool yeah? well, both of which you will be SO extremelly bored of doing seeing as though that's what the main story part of the game had you doing over and over and over again until you'd rather pull your eyes out.
EA, seriously, what were you thinking? this game should never have been released, its not even half finished and you know it!
This game is basically a few repetitive mini-games stretched out into 4 hours (if that) of game play. Lost around hogwarts? you dont even have the fun of looking at a map, nearly headless nick will guide you through the castle, (sounds fun, but just makes the whole things EVEN easier)
This game is NOT worth the money, at all.....
