Really Bad

Barely Tolerable

I am so disappointed in this game.

1) The controls are aggravating. I had to hold the remote in basically one position for so long that my wrist started hurting. If I moved the position of my wrist, I couldn't control the way Harry was looking. Not that I could control it with any amount of accuracy anyway. As has been said previously, the turning is deplorable.

2) The plot is terribly weak. Usually when you have a game that is based on a book or movie, it's a bit different. Some Harry Potter games went much more along with the book, which was nice, and some with the movie, which was also nice, but this was neither. In other games, I might say to myself "Well, I know this didn't actually happen in the book/movie, but hey, I get to fight a dragon!" (Or whatever.) This game I was like, "Oh, more death eaters. Oh. More snatchers."

3) The graphics are bad. It reminds me of PC games from the late 90s.

Conclusion: If you enjoy mashing buttons and hate a challenge, but also have not seen HP7p1 or read the book, this may be the game for you.

Really Bad

The gameplay is slow - too many long cut scenes. Controller response is slow as well. Changed batteries on controller because I thought it was the machine. Nope, just the game (and possibly the console - Wii isn't exactly high end processing or graphics). Extremely frustrating to play. Quit and sent back after 15 mins.
