I was extremely excited for this game. The graphics looked amazing, the gameplay looked good, and the action was superb, It looked as though EA had gotten HP out of its rut (Harry Potter 5: and the Endless Hallways). Little did I know that the Wii version wasn't going to be like other console versions. The graphics were still pretty good (for a Wii game), the gameplay was.... ok, and the action was interesting. Instead of your wand, you have Harry using his repeat action spell rifle to take-down enemies. The controls weren't all that great, being that to look in a different direction, you had to tilt the remote a certain way, and then the game seemed as if it was really meant for Die-hard HP fans. Now I'm not saying other people won't like it, but you really have to love Harry a lot to be able to tolerate the controls and spell-rifle action. My family couldn't stand to play it, let alone watch me play it. The game itself is somewhat short. It didn't take me long, even with short times when I was stuck in a corner of the Ministry of Magic, or trying to get past the snatchers. I think it waz a good try, but it could've been better.
yes: I recommend this product
