"A Dissapointment To Harry Potter Fans"

While this game still may be good, it is a very big disappointment to thoes who find Harry Potter an idol, and being Harry Potter fans, like me, go out and buy this game to be disapointed the most you will ever be about a Harry Potter product. Unless you like pulling your hair out, read the books, and watch the movie!

Sound: 2/10

The sound could have been alot better. The music was OK, but the voices sound like someone who was bad at English attempted a British accent.

Graphics: 3/10

The background and others weren't that bad, but the whole game was pixilated. You can barely make out the detail on a characters face! The bodies are OK.

Challenge: 8/10

Your going to pull your hair out. This game is a fun challenge, but some challenges are so hard you'll want to use Avada Kedrava on your TV.

Replay Value: 3/10

This game will only allow you to lose your sanity from doing the tiresome puzzles OVER and OVER, or you will grow insanely bored if you've mastered it. A good game the first time through, but after, you might as well sell it if you didn't rent it.

Controls: 4/10

The controls are horrible. Especially in Quidditch! They don't have any balance and are somewhat hard to control.

Fun: 8/10

If you ignore all the hair pulling and bad sound/graphics and just experience the real purpous of the game, you will realize that this game is a really fun game.

Lastability: 3/10

For thoes who like short games, this will be a 10/10 for you. However, this game is EXTREMELY short and shouldn't take you more than 6 hours to beat, unless thats how long it takes you to complete one puzzle.

Difficulty: 5/10

This game isn't that hard, which makes it an OK game. This does not include the puzzles, or else it would be 8/10.

Hidden Objects: 4/10
While you can collect Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans, and Famous Witches & Wizard cards, it could have had more. There are secret passages, but they only lead to Wizard and Witches cards. What about that cupboard, you say? Well, No one has opened it yet.

Puzzles: 5/10

They're a bit too challenging, but they are fun. Some can take forever, and others might be no sweat. Still, they're just something else that adds to the game.

Overall: 6/10

I think you will agree with me, that this game could have been a whole lot better. Why I dont think of it as the worst game on earth, it isn't that good either.
