I enjoyed the dialog in the game, graphics especially. But, the faces of the characters sometimes gets fuzzy and barley resmeble those in the movie, so sometimes you'll have to guess or learn who someone is.
I also have seen when turning the right stick to levitate an object, it changes targets so you can't cast the spell.
However, I do Like the story and how closely it is to the book and the movie. The new feature of free roming the castle really lets you get the full harry potter experience. it seems like they took everything from the books and movies and put it together into one, while also adding a few new parts of the castle such as a secret cave (not the chanber of secrets).
So, taking all i enjoyed and didn't i'd give this game 9/10

For it's time, this is an incredible movie experience game. I tend to like these movie franchise games, and I am a HUGE fan of the books and movies so this game kept me entertained, and I actually enjoyed the simple collection tasks. I gave it a 9 because it's not perfect, but I had so much fun wondering around Hogwarts!!!

Allow me to start out by saying that I am not your average Harry Potter fan. I have "read" all the books on Audio CD, and when the movies come out my wife and I leave the three kids at home and take a weekend trip to Chicago to see the movies at the Navy Pier IMAX theater (we take them to the local theatre after we get back, so they can see it too). With that said, I have played all the harry potter games, too. All the previous editions were your average movie-game and the gameplay had very little to do with the plot of the movie. That has changed... the graphics are pretty, the Hogwarts castle is fully 3D and explorable. And in that world, allot of the achievements and gameplay value lies in exploring every little inch of it. Finding all sorts of hidden items and treasures.

So... if you are a fan, you will be absolutely thrilled, and if you are just interested in the game, you will not be disappointed.

I however recommend that you see all the movies before you play the game, as the plots all build on themselves, and to know the story will help make the game make more sense.
