Game graphics pretty good, story line a key for the most part. Constant wand waving, never a dull moment. Now to the cons: constantly up and down the stairs, not knowing where you need to go is nice but when you have to ask EVERYBODY in Hogwarts to find the next key item gets rather boring real quick. Some things require a walkthrough, try IGN....

This year at Hogwarts was plain and simple. Too many ridiculous run around quests with poor play mechanics, and sluggish gameply. There is little else to this game other than slow repetitive quests which require the same basic concept each time. If you have a little brother or sister that just love Potter, it may be ok for a young age, but the more experienced gamer will find little to no challenge, especially in minigames. The room of rewards offers little more than a few cast interviews, which also are bland and offer little insight. Pass on this one, unless you are a dedicated Potter fan who just has to play it just to play through a sub-par video game.
Based on the Movie allows alot of free roaming. Also the Endless day at the end allows you to complete side quests. Fights are chaotic, and some quests will drive you insane, but the only real flaw is the Camera view.
