I am a big Harry Potter fan. I've read all the books and own all the movies but this game was really, really bad. If you want to play this game, just watch the movie but that is what half the game is story and not playing. The only positive thing I would say would be being able to run around Hogwarts. They really did a great job on the architectural aspect. Besides that, I have nothing good to say.

This game is really bad.Based on every harry Potter game that has come out this one has to be the worst.the spells are too hard to cast and the storyline is worse than the movie.Also when you play the game you can just click on your map and it shows you exactly where to go so basicly the game is run around,do something that has nothing to do with the book/movie and run around again.If youre looking for am magical adventure you would probaly have more fun playing with youre blind,deaf aunt in a game of marco polo

If you're a big Harry Potter fan, as I am, this is the game for you. It's pretty basic so it's good for kids and new Wii users. The game goes along with the movie, not the book, and can be frustrating because most of the interesting parts are cut scenes and you can't do anything. The castle is pretty confusing if you try not to use the Maurader's Map all the time. Some parts don't give enough information about the task you're trying to accomplish so you end up wandering around the castle lost until you figure it out.
Movement is pretty basic using the nunchuk and pointing your wand (wiimote) to cast spells. The camera angle gets annoying because it changes automatically and you have to quickly switch the way you're running or you'll end up going back and forth.
There is no life-bar for you or your enemies so you never really know when you're in trouble, or when you are getting close to winning a duel. There aren't very many fight scenes but you do get to explore the castle in depth.
As I said, over all okay, because I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, but rather boring. Mostly just running around looking for different people or items for those people.
