Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

 

I love adventure games. It makes me happy to know that I shouldn't eat the blueberry pie in King's Quest V. It wouldn't have shown up in my inventory if I was supposed to eat it. Figuring out which item to present to which character is oddly satisfying...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

 

If there is one game that had the potential to dazzle people with its unique use of the Wii Remote, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix should have earned that title. Sadly, what could have been a wand waving good time ended up skirting the line...

For Harry Potter fanatics, OotP is one of the better Potter games out there. To be able to walk all over the grounds of Hogwarts and interact with tons of characters and locations from the books is a very enjoyable experience. Sadly, the fetch quests...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

 

Wizards, Muggles, and Voldemort... oh my!

Game play for each version is similar, but systems such as the Wii and PS3 utilize their motion controls to imitate wand movements which will allow gamers to immerse themselves in the experience a bit deeper. The DS version uses its touch screen...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix review for the WII

 

Nobody Likes Summer School Anyway

Brick-for-brick Hogwarts; Tossing couches at children; Orchestral anthems

Weak pacing & sloppy action; Rushed, anticlimactic writing; Mundane magic; Patchwork graphics

Potter fans may enjoy this sightseeing tour around Hogwarts, but it's going to take better, deeper stuff to innovate in the Grand Theft Auto genre. Order of the Pheonix is all about homework and chores, and feels harder to take in than a whole book -...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

 

Potter and friends return in their best adventure yet. Does that mean the game is actually good or just a little less awful?

Great remote-enhanced spellcasting ; Giant 3D Hogwarts with no load times ; Um, magic is awesome

Movement control is unwieldy ; Fetch quests ad nauseum</i ; Graphics are beautiful, but blurry and drab

As you may have heard, this is the best Harry Potter videogame yet. But that's like saying "Bloodrayne" is the best Uwe Boll movie yet -- it might be true, but it doesn't mean much. The previous Potter games ranged from average to dreadful. Still, this...

My grandmother loves the harry potter games >.< And I will soon be purchasing this one when i have the dolla dolla to do as such. Post a Comment

Order of the Phoenix is the first movie game of the year that would be considered solid for a game, period. For a movie tie-in, it's spectacular.

Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix Review

 

Potter and his band of wizarding chums return for their fifth year at Hogwarts - but does it capture the magic of the school years...

Intuitive and immersive Wii-remote controls ; Good looking Wii title ; Fully explorable Hogwarts

Dull mission structure ; Clunky camera system ; Slow paced gameplay

It may play more immersively on Wii, but Harry's fifth year at Hogwarts is ultimately let down by unexciting quests and miles of wandering around the famous school of magic. Then again, even the initial fun of relentless wrist flicking ebbs away after...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

 

It's the next best thing to having a half-giant burst through your door and tell you that you're a wizard.

Does a fantastic job of recreating Hogwarts; world is large and easy to navigate; lots of secrets to discover; spell casting is great fun

Combat is boring; still a few rough edges that need smoothing; bland voice acting; graphically inferior to the other console versions

For a Harry Potter fan this is easily the ZOMGBESTSUMMEREVER! Not only did the videogame based on the upcoming 5th movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, just come out this past week, ...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

NiGHTS: Journey of Dr..

The best Harry Potter game to date; amazing atmosphere that let's you go anywhere within Hogwarts; magic casting is easy and fun to use

Tasks can become repetitive; no desire for people who have not read the books or seen the films
