Dont you remember the old games? Being able to hop on you broom whenever and fly around. Having full access to the castle and grounds. Casting Spells at will. What Happened? The Next installment in the Harry Potter game series was quite depressing. Good Gameplay is replaced with extremely cheesy and annoying video clips. I spent the first half of the game annoyed because I had to watch these stupid clips and I couldn't even play. The "levels" are quite set. Very little freedom. When will they make an free,exciting Harry Potter game?...... Here you are at Hogwarts. Here is your wand. Here is your class schedule. Go get um'.
I rent from Gamefly for my boys but occasionally I do order one for myself. Needless to same I am a novice player, but I have played all of the HPs for xbox. This game is fun but there is not enough to do. And even though I am a novice it was extremenly easy to beat/finish. Its definitely worth playing but don't expect to play it long.
I was soooo excited for this game to come out. I played the last game, Order of the Phoenix, four different times completely. So I even went out and bought this new game. That was a big mistake. This game doesn't have half of the content that the last one had. I found it incredibly boring and tedious. The best part of the game was watching the movie clips and finding out more about what will be in the new movie. Yes, the movie clips are far superior to actual game play. Hopefully the next game will step back up to the level of OOTP. Because this one was an obviously huge step backwards. Poor Harry!
