Did You Know?

This video game is actually the final installment of the traditional Harry Potter role-playing games of the early noughties. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and it's prequel Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, like this one, follow their own canon separate from the book and it's film adaptions. The characters have models based on their book descriptions and Hogwarts layout appears very much to be an original interpretation. Starting with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the video games based itself entirely on the film canon, removing spell challenges, chests, inventories etc.See more »
Miscellaneous: On the Murauder's Map level on the Playstation 2 and X-Box versions, if the player is caught by Snape for unknown reasons Snape will just continuously cough and splutter.See more »

Highly Addicting, High Replay Value, VERY GOOD Game!, 22 June 2004
Author: immaturemonkey from Somewhere Southeast of the Arabian Peninsula

There's no need to be the world's best videogamer or a big fan of the Harry Potter series to like this game. Highly addictive, quite amusing and some good voice-acting and soundtracks in this game only enhance it further. 3-Character scrolling (You could switch from Harry to Ron to Hermione) was very well done. Overall Rating: 3 - 4 *'s

RATING SCALE:5 *'s = Superb 4*'s = Excellent 3's = Pretty Good 2 *'s So-So 1 * = Bleh!! :( -1 * = Sucked like a bucket of ticks

Graphics: Most of the characters were modeled very closely to their movie counterparts, with a couple of exceptions because the 3-D thing just didn't pan out very well with their "look". The landscaping of the castle and grounds was nice. 3 *'s

Ease of Gameplay: Since I rented it & it was only a 3 day rental, I was hoping that the controls would be fairly easy to pick up. (I am not the best gameplayer and cannot usually beat a game within 3 days.) Surprisingly, I had NO problem whatsoever in playing; very nice, no mad button-mashing skills required. Even a beginner videogamer could get the hang of this. 5 *'s

Plot line & Flow of Gameplay: Loved the book, the movie was quite well done, and so going in with the hopes that the video game was just as well done as the latter, all I can say is that my hopes were not dashed. The gameplay was nice and smooth, flowy and at a relaxed pace. The cut scenes were excellently done. 4*'s

Re-Play Value: If you played it once, you will probably want to play it again. I myself found it highly amusing and addictive (I put off studying for all my exams to play the game for all the days that I had it) and since I have returned the game to the rental outlet, I am going to buy myself a personal copy. Therefore, the re-play value would be pretty high.

Disappointments: The only thing that I felt a little bit miffed about was how the game resolved the conflict. Maybe a little bit more of a real RPG-style should have been granted to some pieces. (IE- Exploring Hogsmeade & the Shrieking Shack since there was practically nothing to do with them.)
