HBP - Pretty Good!

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I've read the books (multiple times), watched the movies, and played the video games. I loved the first 3 games... Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favorite. Goblet of Fire was REALLY bad in my personal opinion, and after that game, I stopped buying them. I felt like I completely wasted my money on that one. Order of the Phoenix was OK... I didn't like it as much as PoA, but ALOT better than GoF...

HBP was waaaaaay better than GoF or OotP! I gave it a 9 out of 10. Only problem I had with it was that it was perhaps a bit too easy. I enjoyed it, and will probably buy it soon so that my son and I can enjoy it together. (Multiplayer dueling sounds like fun to me!)

Harry Potter 6 is horrible

The 6th harry potter game was the worst of all the games. this game was so bad it made me feel like i never wanted to play another game. And they made it so short i was able to beat it in 4 hours. the only good thing about this game was the fighting but it was still hard and you don't get to learn a lot of spells. Making potions and playing their sport was the hardest part. This about the only thing you do in the game beside getting attacked all the time by the same 2 people which are malfoys freinds and running around all the time. I am harry potter fan and when i got this game i was very happy but when i began playing it i got very angry and i was disappointed. You only get to see the headmaster 4 times before he in 2 second battle. You never get to see nevile or the rest of harrys friends except for his 2 main freinds and luna and ginny. So don't play this game because its a waste and a big disappointment.

The game overall was enjoyable, if short. My biggest complaint is that in some areas the lack of camera control makes getting certain crests almost impossible. Such as the one on the wall near the bridge to the stone circle. The camera simply will not allow you to look at the crest you are supposed to be casting Incendio on and then flinging something at via Wingardium Leviosa.
