Harry Potter und der Gefangene von Askaban ist ein klassisches Action-Adventure, an dem gerade die Jüngeren ob des einsteigerfreundlichen Gameplays ihren Spaß haben werden. Allerdings erspart das Spiel nicht das Lesen des Buches, da die Handlung hier nur bruchstückhaft wiedergegeben wird. Eingefleischte Potter-Fans können aber ohne zu zögern zugreifen. In Hogwarts gibt es wirklich viel zu entdecken und durch die Trading Crads wird man auch schnell von Sammelfieber gepackt. Potter-Hasser werden dagegen anspruchsvollere Spielekost bevorzugen.

All in all, Harrpy Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban is a very nice game with which the fans especially will enjoy themselves. The sublime graphics, fun gameplay and beautiful sound may well get you to play the game more than once. EA has completed its mission to make the game harder than the previous ones but don't expect a difficult one, only the younger gamers will face some problems. It's also a pitty that it's so short.

En plus de bénéficier du scénario passionnant imaginé par J.K.Rowling pour son troisième chapitre de la saga d'Harry Potter, ce jeu profite d'une réalisation soignée et d'un gameplay difficilement critiquable pour offrir une progression variée, très bien mise en scène et passionnante à jouer. Le tout manque encore un peu d'éclat pour nous impressionner, mais la recette fonctionnera parfaitement auprès des nombreux fans de Potter.

With so much excitement building up in anticipation of the third feature film release, Electronic Arts presents Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban a day before the story hits the silver screens. Like previous movie tie-ins, Prisoner of Azkaban allows you to interactively help Harry, Ron and Hermione as they uncover Sirius Black and his plot to kill Harry Potter.

Nintendo Difference
Un petit jeu d’aventure qui vise clairement les jeunes et très jeunes. Ceux qui sont vite rebuté devant la complexité d’un Zelda ou la difficulté d’un BGE trouveront leur plaisir ici. Idem pour les accros de l’univers « Harry potter » qui auront droit à une adaptation fidèle et réussie. Quant aux autres, Harry 3 reste un jeu d’aventure correct mais sans envergure.

Game Informer Magazine
Harry Potter has probably been one of the biggest video game disappointments of recent years. Electronic Arts usually comes through with top quality games to match their big licenses, as has been shown in its generally excellent work with The Lord of the Rings and James Bond franchises. However, the Hogwarts gang never seemed to warrant much more than a half-hearted effort at Zelda-style adventuring, minus all the genius parts. I wish I could say that Prisoner of Azkaban was a bold new start for the series. It’s not, but this is a significantly better game than either of the previous entries (Quidditch World Cup notwithstanding).

It's not clear what happened, but somewhere between last fall's pitiful Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and the new Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban only seven months later, a lot has changed, and the end result is the best Harry Potter game yet seen on consoles.

Harry's older, the story is darker and the execution is sloppier. Click here to find out if there's any magic left at Hogwarts.

I have been a fan of the Harry Potter books for almost five years. Naturally, this affinity extends to some of the other Harry Potter products such as Lego sets and video games. I have already been disappointed twice by mediocre Harry Potter games, but I was sure that Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban would be different from its predecessors.

The Harry Potter franchise is something of a rarity, a fantasy book series that successfully transitioned into an equally popular series of films. Hand it to J.K. Rowling she did a great job ensuring that her initial vision didn’t turn into, well, this.
