  Yet another chore running Potter Game

| | See all Darkstorm's reviews (9)

Yes yes, I know - yet another Potter game.

But wait, this one promises to be different! But hang on, it isn't... It is yet another chore running game - with very poor standards. If you want to get a password to a portraight, and you are already on a quest then to get the password you'll have to do the portraits quest before carrying on with the original quest - because Potter and co DO NOT REMEMBER anything they find out - i.e. a Portrait on the second floor requires you to find out from a 1st yr Ravenclaw where R. Ravenclaw came from (answer is the Glens) - and when you meet this portrait you are already on a quest, but to give the portrait the answer you must find a 1st yr. R/claw and ask them, then go back and tell the portrait, and then carry on with your quest.

Total shambles of a game - the graphics are mediocre for a new game considering the quality of modern graphics cards. I have 2 7950 GT cards (total 1Gb of Sli Graphics memory) and the game looks the same is would on a lower spec PC. The characters still look a little odd (even though they had their noggins scanned and pasted into the game) and the controls for the PC game are BLOOMING AWEFUL!

Only consider this if you are REALLY into Potter - for me, I prefer the books and then the films - I hope the next game will be better!

By the way, the room of rewards is a little bit of a let down, as there aren't any rewards that seem to do much to make the game more interesting - most of the "rewards" are unlockable clips from the actors and actresses.

So, all in all, this game is pretty average.

This game is brilliant. There is no waiting time and the graphics are fab. By far my fave game so far in the Harry Potter series.
