i was surprised at the graphics for this game. they are pretty good. the missions are very fun, and you have freedom around the castle (which is pretty large). at night, though, you have to be careful not to get caught by the prefects or the knights. its not that big a deal though, because you just end p back where you started. there are tons of collectables that can increase your endurance and you can buy new spells or supplies at fred and george's shop. you can also switch between the three friends. each has their own special abilities. harry is athletic, so he can jump to places ron and hermione cant reach. also, harry is the only one who was produce a patronus. ron is the only one who was cast the lumos spell, and he can search in bookcases to find bertie botts beans, dungbombs,and stink pellets, and he can find secret passages in walls with the help of harry's maruader's map. hermione knows the most spells which is fun in its own way. also, you have the choice to fly buckbeak all around outside, even going to the top of the highest tower and over the lake. but only harry and hermione can ride him.

I'm a big fan of the movies and an even bigger fan of the books, but the games never fail to disappoint every time.

Pros:
Dueling is fun.
Unique day by day approach that is refreshing.

Cons:
Doesn't really follow the movie or book.
Very limited number of spells.
Gameplay is overly simple and slow.
