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. Its almost a sort of Grand Theft Auto: Hogwarts (or a variation on The Simpsons: Hit & Run for those that are too young to know about Rockstars naughty blockbusters).
What this means in practical terms is that youve 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 isnt as simple as just pressing a button though, as youre 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. Theres also a range of similarly controlled mini-games, including wizard chess and gobstones, which you can play either in or out of the game. Its 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.

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)
Lots to do.
TONS of exploration of the amazing Hogwarts castle.
Lots of characters
Nothing too impossible to do.
It isn't scary.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
