Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harry Potter RPG ========= Gameplay ========= Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban uses a turn-based combat system but doesn't include random encounters. You'll be able to see enemies on screen and be able to avoid them and at certain points in the game you may very well want to do so as well. Though, I will admit that the battle system suffers from a few flaws such as animations taking way too long and making the game feel unnecessarily slow. I'll also admit that as you increase the level of your spells through use the cost goes up rather quickly but not at the same rate as damage output. Though, the combat system does offer once saving grace through its skill system. Each of the three playable characters offers a different set of skills. Harry uses the chocolate frog cards to achieve various effects such as distracting the enemy or recovering stamina points. Hermoine's abilities allow you to buff a character's stats or to give yourself a 50% boost to your experience gain after a battle, and Ron uses various stink pellets to distract the enemy. ========= Graphics ========= Graphically this game is a bit of a mess to be honest. A few of the character portraits have a more realistic feel to them while all of the character and monster design around them has a more cartoon flavor. I also find some dissonance between the character models and the battlefield backgrounds in some places as well. Outside of the lack of a consistent style the game is alright in terms of visuals. ========= Sound ========= The soundtracks are all rather nice, but the limited number of them is sort of disappointing, but the game itself is rather short as well. My biggest issue with the soundtrack is just how jarring a shift it is between the battle theme and the victory theme. It's honestly enough to make me play with the sound off just so I can't hear it since you'll spend a lot of time grinding out levels so you can be competitive in combat. ========= Lasting Appeal ========= The game does offer a New Game+ system and you'll need to play the game at least twice to collect all of the chocolate frog cards since some of them can only be obtained on certain missions which are usually comprised of split paths in this game between teaming up with Ron or Hermoine. ========= Scores ========= Gameplay: 7 Graphics: 7 Sound: 6 Lasting Appeal: 8 Overall: 7

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Fun Game Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is one of my favorite games to play on the Gameboy Advanced. I've been playing this game since I was 4 or 5 and just love the story line. If you like Harry Potter, you'll like this game! I've enjoyed it my whole child hood and still play it as a teen. The music is very moving and sounds good. The graphics are pretty good. Especially when dueling. The gameplay in this game, is very intriguing. And I what I mean by that is, sometimes, you can't put it down. I picked this game for the first time, and played for hours. Getting stuck here and there, because I didn't level up enough to defeat the Womping Willow. It's a great game and very fun for anyone who is a gamer and anyone who loves Harry Potter.
