Well i just finished HPOTP and i have to admits it's a great game. Now the cons: the right stick spells aren't that responsive at times and sometimes give you the wrong spell which can be frustrating, also the footprints are hard to follow so half the time you don't know where your going, also the cutscens need better graphics. And the pro: THE GRAPHICS(enough said), the School(Hogwarts like you've never seen it), also the the achievements are a + too. Now what should have been but wasn't, there should have been the broomstick and quidditch matches, there should have been classes instead of the quests, and there should have been a longer story that resembles the book not the game.

This is a game rated E. This is also a game based on a children's story (regardless of the fact that quite a few adults like the series too). As an adult, this game is way too easy. Any wizard duel you engage in can be lost at almost no expense, save the inconvenience of walking back to wherever it was you lost. As a kid between 7 and 12 years of age, this is a fantastic game.

If you're looking for some mindless fun as an adult, this is a nice game to pick up. The chess matches are pretty fun and truly, one can never get tired of zapping random students as they run by you.

If you're an adult looking to give the niece or nephew something to do that doesn't involve nagging you when they come over, this is a good game to have on hand.

I rated this game as a 5 since being an adult, it doesn't present a challenge, but the content was not poorly done. The music is enjoyable, the environments are excellently crafted, and if you don't get everything you can the first time you go through a game, the ability to run about and collect all those things after completing the main story is quite handy.
