Product Description

‘The boy who lived’ is another movie hero whose video game adventures never seem to have matched up to the quality of his films (or books). Rather than simply repeat the predictable third person action of previous games though, this is something a bit different. It’s almost a sort of Grand Theft Auto: Hogwarts (or a variation on The Simpson’s: Hit & Run for those that are too young to know about Rockstar’s naughty blockbusters).

What this means in practical terms is that you’ve got almost the whole of Hogwarts school to explore from the off, with different missions of varying degrees of importance available from different locations. You now control only Harry, with Hermione or Ron reduced to supporting roles, although there are some short sections where you can play as Fred and George Weasley instead. The re-focus on Harry is a result of the sheer number of magical spells available to him now, from standard offensive and defensive magic to summons and levitation spells that help you uncover and unlock the hidden secret of Hogwarts.

Casting spells isn’t as simple as just pressing a button though, as you’re made to actually trace out a magical symbol using the controller (something that works particularly well on the Wii), which adds greatly to the sense of immersion. There’s also a range of similarly controlled mini-games, including wizard chess and gobstones, which you can play either in or out of the game. It’s all a vast improvement on the previous titles, with similarly superior graphics and a general air of effort not usually associated with film tie-ins.

I'm 20 playing this game and female if it makes much of a difference.
This game has lots of little challenges, it does fly through the story fairly quickly as the challenges are in collective chunks. After learning a couple of spells in Grimmauld place from Sirius you go on to get the 28 DA members in the Room of Requirement but many of them require something before you do this, some of them are easy some of them are challenging in the sense you end up running all over the ENORMOUS castle.
There are teacher mini quests, not like the PoA ones but where you have to complete a potion quickly without a time limit and correctly to get a grade, cast the correct spells (which I find difficult as the controller has a completely different idea thanks to the casting being so similar it's easy to slip and cast the wrong one)

Pros:
Lots to do.
TONS of exploration of the amazing Hogwarts castle.
Lots of characters
Nothing too impossible to do.
It isn't scary.

Cons:
The MASSIVE con for me is the fact the people get in the way, you can be trying to get past the bridge into the grounds but people will be standing talking and you can't get past even when talking to them they sometimes don't move for ages. Hermione and Ron who follow you throughout the entire game are the same and they stand in the way (not on purpose to block things) these people are standing there because they follow approx 5 steps behind you which is extremely annoying!

The game doesn't have much structure.
I didn't earn any trophies no matter what I did for PS3.
The spell casting is terrible, Reparo and Reducto are similar, Protego is the same as Depulso but you can only use attack spells in a duel.

Compared to the Harry potter games on playstation 2 i think that this one has a lot more to do and you have more freedom to find things which you want to do. The graphics are excellent too. The only down side is that ron and Hermione follow your around the whole game and sometimes get in your way and you have to sort of push them out of the way, and Hermione constantly reminding you of everything which you have not completed yet! Some fun bits in the game though and all in all its definitely worth a play!!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix the video game is based on the fifth movie of the critically and commercially successful movie franchise Harry Potter. The game is quite different from the previous video game instalments. The developers have given us a different, more grounded and deep world to explore with a more realistic approach to it resulting the most faithful video game adaptation of the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

STORY

The game follows the story of the movie through cut scenes. They are not many of them and are far between giving you a short impression of how the story is progressing. A new defence against the dark arts teacher is slowly taking over Hogwarts with the help of the Ministry of Magic setting new rules of a better non magical education. The ministry of magic doesn’t believe that Voldemort has returned and fought Harry Potter. Harry gets in charge of the situation with his friends and a rebellion is formed under the name of ‘Dumbledore’s Army’ where students are learning how to use magic for attack and defence against a possible attack of the evil forces of Voldemort.

GAMEPLAY

The gameplay consists of mainly running around the castle, exploring it and casting a small variety of spells. The spells come in to two categories: Interaction with the environment like making specific objects to fly, move, ignite or destroy and combat. Fortunately, the spells in each category are performed easily. Each spell has a specific movement of the thumb button. The movements being performed are the same in each category. However, locking into the objects you want to interact with can be difficult and frustrating at times.
The combat is the weakest part of this game.

The first ever Harry Potter game for the PS3, and it rocks! :D Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a great game. The game is based upon the 5th Harry Potter film of the franchise. The game is great it negates what made The Goblet of Fire game so bad and returns back to that classic formula. The game has a lot of freedom which is nice. The graphics are good and Hogwarts looks good too, you are able to explore for hours at a time and when you're bored just cast a spell at a random group of students and you can start fights its hilarious to do xD Anyway the campaign is well translated from the movie, it does condense the story quite a bit but it is still fun to play through because there are some scenes from the book as well that have made it here, in a different sort of context mind, but yes its great to see some of these scenes back here. The controls are okay, they could be better, they lack fluidity. You have to constantly hold down X to run otherwise Harry walks everywhere and this is far too slow. The music is fantastic, its completely original and really captures the spirit of Potter and the magic. I often imagine myself when playing this game, thinking I'm inside my old school doing magic. The voice acting is pretty abysmal, its atrocious. This is only a minor element, but even so it does become annoying after a while. The game does add a nice nuonce at the end when you can play as Sirius and Dumbledore, which is rather nice. Overall its a great fun game, plenty of thrills and spills. A nice Potter PS3 adventure and miles better than The Goblet of Fire game. 8/10
