Like most games that are based on movies this game was terrible. The graphics were bad and the game play was weak. The music was great because it was from harry potter which is wonderful music. The story which is excellent in the movie is changed just enough in the game to make it terrible. I was unable to get past the first two "training" missions because they were so boring. Don't waste your time with this one. Rent the movie or read the book and you will have a better experience.

Ok. So I am a huge HP fan and couldn't wait to try this game. Maybe my expectations were too high. I made it through about 20 minutes of playing and sent the game back. The controls were really difficult to use, I couldn't control the wand to save my life! Maybe its me, but I'm glad I tried it before buying it for 30 bucks. I'm bummed.

Those of you who are blessed with a big screen TV to play your video games on may not have a problem with this at all. Others who have average size TV's may find that it is difficult to see at certain times within the game. Also not being able to change the angle of the camera view at most points in the game is frustrating as well. Also while you are in the map, the names and the places to visit are hard to read. On top of that most of the controls are not responsive 100% of the time. At best they are sluggish if they respond at all.
