Rated 1 out of 10 by Crossout22 Dont buy this game
Even if you're a hardcore Harry Potter fan yo will be disappointed at the horridness of the game for one the graphics are horrible. Also the game sends you on these boring and repetitive missions. In the game Ron and Hermoine follow you all around and if you stop and try to backtrack they stay there which in my opinion is an unnecessary challenge. Also the dueling system or fighting system is poor. Locking on to a target in the game is a challenge in itself and also there is no life bar you just fight until the player gets on his knee and if you get hit you die and when he's on the floor you sit there helpless. Also its almost utterly impossible to remember the movements made necessary to do spells and on top of that its separated into two classes of spell attack and everyday spells in which both classes have the same motions. So I say that you shouldn't buy this it's a waste of your money.
Rated 3 out of 10 by alacey6 really that is the best you can do
If this isn't the quickest game ever made than I don't know which game was. The story line was follow very well by the makers but that is really the only thing they have going for them. The game doesn't have much variety to it and becomes very repetitive after about ten minutes of game play. You are asked to do things for various students to convince them to join your army and the tasks the students ask are barely challenging. Some ask you to simply run to another point in the castle grab something and bring it back (ZZZZZZZ). Others ask you to show them a spell and are convinced. The game attempted to bring in dueling but missed the mark by a mile there is no challenge to the duels simply cast you spell until the other one falls down. I would not recommend this game to anyone if you really want to play it go out and rent it for an hour and you've should bat it in said time.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ViperK Very Nice
For a Harry Potter game I am very impressed. I used to dislike the games until I played this one. the graphics were good and the storyline is very good. The price is cheap and worth the little money you put into it. Overall this is a very good game. For all you people giving this a low score if you don't like this game then you must not like ANY of the cheaper games. this is the best of all of them. I mean seriously people. Graphics: Very good for a Potter game. I was very impressed. Storyline: Was suprised on how good the graphics were. I mean for a cheap game these are very impressive. Challenge: The wasn't much of a challenge. In some parts it will take you a few tries. Overall I like the game. You can interact with alot of things. This game is recommended to anybody that wants a good cheap game.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Johanson First Bad Game in a While
Gamestop had accidentally sent me this game instead of the half blood prince about a week ago so i decided to give it a try before the rest of my games i ordered. I was immidiately turned off by the terrible graphics and speech that they have to match the characters. The gameplay with free roam and wand use was too complicating and it was just not a good match for a free roam game. Not to mention, about 5 minutes from beating the game, this terrible thing bugged out on me and everyone in hogworts dissapeared and there was nothing for me to do to proceed. Save your cashhhh!!!!
Rated 7 out of 10 by FreshKrisKreash Not The Best HP Game
Definitely not the best Harry Potter game I've ever played but still fun. And for the price, it's worth buying if you love HP in general.
Rated 5 out of 10 by PantherFang Decent Game
Harry Potter is a popular book and movie series, so i figured the game would be somewhat good, unlike some movie licensed games I've played, like E.T., Oh god it makes me sick to my stomach to say the name of that game....... anyways Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix is a decent game, I liked it, but there were some parts I found a bit confusing, such as recruiting students for Dumbledore's Army. The Spell system works good, I love how you can use spells in duels, and i like the marble mini-game (I forget what it's called). So overall, I liked it, 5/10.
Rated 9 out of 10 by avatar12345 not so well potter
i said i was getting harry potter and the deathly hallows part 1 videogame because it is better then part 2 and it has dobby,patrounus charm,3rd person shooter,etc ok were done i am getting harry potter and the deathly hallows part 1. now the order of the Phoenix is a fair game but he game ply is not good it is the worstttt ever . i wanted to get it but then i changed my mind . why? thanks for asking because you use your right analog stick to cast a spell and the story is different from the movie.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Marquise Not The Best
Sorry to let you down, but this is not the best Harry Potter game out to date! There is not much you can do except 3 additional task from teachers, find about 6 portraits and clean hogwarts with reparo, depulso, accio, and wingardrium leviosa. The real missions are to recruit about 30 people for the D.A. (about an hour) and help them. ( another 1hr). Seriously, not the best.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DragonSlayer Great game
This game takes you through what harry did in the 5th book. they also add some things just to make the game more interesting. there are some parts that can get kida hard. in one part you have to find all of the members of Dumbledore's Army and tell them about the meeting. one thing that i would change is that i wish that you didnt have to play as Harry the whole time.
Rated 6 out of 10 by fellow its not that good
ah, not really a good game, this game is for kid gamers, ya know, i think this game isn't that fun i guess, so, if you like harry potter a little bit, then maybe i guess you sohuld get this game.
