Summary

Fun game to play, but there were a few problems.

The Good

The storyline was great! It was pretty accurate to the movie.

Christmas and Halloween are in the game.

The graphics are good for a game made in its time.

The sounds and music are great. I like the music in the game.

When you pick up beans, you hear what the flavor is.

The Bad

The game has signs that it was rushed. One time, I was walking through the Grand Staircase and the walls looked funny.

The only prefects I saw in the game were Gryffindor prefects.

The only place you see the inside of in Diagon Alley is Ollivander's Wand Shop.

I have no clue what this was, but it was WEIRD! I was walking in the dungeons and decided to go inside the potions classroom. Well, I went inside and I was in another room besides the potions classroom! The room had a bunch of lit torches on one side of it, and I tried to go over to them, but some invisible wall held me back, I also went another direction, but another invisible wall held me back. This is what really freaked me out: The door to the rest of the dungeon was TRANSPARENT. I could see through it and into the rest of the dungeon. Well I went back into the Dungeon Corridor and then back into the room and it was still there. Then i went out and back into the room and the potions classroom was there again.

The Bottom Line

It is a really enjoyable game, but I recommend it only to hardcore Potter fans.
