Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow easily, one of the best games i have ever played. I started one night, and didnt stop playing it till the next day and i beat it. My favorite part of this game was making potions. The story is great. I highly reccomend this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Amazing Harry Potter Game Since I somewhat enjoyed Order of the Pheonix when I played it in 2008, I had my hopes up for this game. After owning this game for 3 days, my expectations were surpassed. I love the gameplay and one of the things I LOVE about this game is that Hogwarts is right there in all of its glory. Almost every place and detail is included in this game, from the Boathouse, Hagrid's Hut, Hogwarts itself, etc. In the game you go through the story line based off of the movie (which will only take you about 4-5 hours to beat) and you look for 150 Hogwarts Crests that give you rewards. My favorite activities in order are Dueling, making Potions, and Quidditch. Dueling is fun and great to play with a friend, the Potions is everything a Muggle can ask for, but all you do for Quidditch is fly through stars, which is somewhat of a let down for Potter fans. The sound for this game is alright, some of the actors of the movie supported their voices while horrible voice overs gave their voices to memorable characters, such as Dumbledore and Hermionie. Each spell sound has a unique sound, which I love. You can either love or hate the graphics for Half-Blood Prince. Harry looks even more detailed than Order of the Phoenix, especially the hair and the reflection of his glasses, and so do a couple characters too, but there are also smudgy, zombie looking characters such as Hermionie. Sometimes Hermionie's hair would go through her shoulder or Dumbledore's beard goes through his chest, but on the plus side, Hogwarts is created in great detail and a lot of characters look better than the previous game. Overall, you can probably beat the main story in 4-5 hours, but even after the story is complete, there is still so much to do, like duel with other students, make potions, explore Hogwarts, collect Hogwarts Crests for rewards, and so much more. True Harry Potter fans will enjoy this game as much as I have and it will be a great game to add to your collection.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from harry potter thbp this game is not worth the money. it only took me about three or four hours to get through the story part of the game and now im looking for all of the crest that hidden throughout the game and i have about one hundred twenty out of one hundred fifty. this game has much more that is bad about this game than good. the only good part of the game is that the game has these clubs that you can make potions thats the funest part of the game, a dueling club thats ok but to fun, and a flying club thats boring. the flying controls are so much worse than the earlier games in this franchise. the game follows the book and the movie but it has stuff that happened in the book that was not put in the movie. its game that if you really want to buy it wait until it gets cheeaper, buy it used, just dont buy it at full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good,but not great. I have had my ups and downs with this game. This game wasn't much of a challenge if you tried your hardest. The controls are great,one of the best i have used. The graphics were excellent because everything was detailed from Harry's broom to the surroundings of Hogwarts. The interaction was great and really addicting. The length was one of the worst parts of the game. I was very disappointed with the length in this game because if you played this game all the way without stopping, it would probably take about 1-2 hours.The sound was also great because say when you were brewing a potion and did something right,"POOOF" at full sound.The storyline was good because most of it was directly from the movie.Overall, this game is a good game for the fan but not for the person who just wants to get a challenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a fun harry potter game I am about half way through this game, trying to pace myself until movie comes out, and I am having a fun. The controls are easy to use, sometimes the potion part of game is difficult only because it's easy to miss the cauldron. Out of all the harry potter games I have had and played then sold back, this one is fun, a lot of different side activities and exploring of hogwarts you can do. Also flying and dueling is always good after a stressful day! I will probably keep this one and replay it often. Good animation in the cut scenes, character voices are not original actors but they are close enough. So far I have only been able to control Harry, I am hoping that the other characters become available at some point. Finally after 6 movies and even more video games they got it right. I would recommend this game to any harry potter fan! For those who just like adventure, rent it at least to try it out.
