Okay. Harry Potter. The book, the movie, the video game...blah blah blah. I Love the book series and I thought some of the movies were good. so now that you know I just don't hate the series...lets talk about this game.
Well... it's a fun game, but it doesn't really stick to the story to well. But lets be fair... it wouldn't be as fun if they did! The spell list is limited, but still entertaining. the interaction with your surroundings was very well done (have harry walk on a staircase next to a handrail and he will rest his hand on the rail). I think I would have rated this game a 9, if it wasn't for two flaws. one: the camera!! it gets stuck around things all the time! sometimes it is easier to walk out of a room and back in to get the angle you would like. you have no camera control. they could have fixed this easily by giving a button that would switch the right thumbstick to camera control. Two: item selection! when you are trying to cast a spell...selecting the correct target can be a pain.
Other than that: great game. fun, not to hard, not to simple. It also has a large amount of side quests and tasks to keep you busy.
Definitely worth renting off Gamefly, but I would not go buying this just yet...

Hello Harry Potter fans... I can honestly say that this game is a good game the only thing that bothered me was controlling the character but even then you get use to controlling it after awhile. Their is enough of a gripping story to keep one interested until the very end... enjoy it.

Pretty Decent Game

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....
