In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community has been denied the truth about the teenager's recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, is lying about Voldemort's return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students. But Professor Dolores Umbridge's Ministry-approved course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces threatening them and the entire wizarding community, so at the prompting of his friends Hermione and Ron, Harry takes matters into his own hands. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves "Dumbledore's Army," Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead.

Talk to the portraits, complete their missions and gain passwords for shortcuts around Hogwarts. The player can interact with virtually everything they come across, gain discovery points and unlock secrets in the Room of Rewards.

Recruit Dumbledore's Army: Find and recruit the members of Dumbledore's Army. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix's nonlinear gameplay allow the player to choose where they go, what they do and when they do it, within the magical surroundings of Hogwarts.

Actual movie assets were referenced to create a more authentic feel.

           Magical (I know very cheesy)

          I have really enjoyed playing this game. Yeah the story is short, but we knew about that from the reviews. But what the game is lacking in story line, it makes up for with controls and experience. There is not one load screen making travelling about Hogwarts a seamless adventure. Controls are very respondant, always recognising the spell i wanted to cast, and are very easy to use and remember. Actually performing the action in real life when for example levitating is so satisfying, really is something everybody should feel at least once. Yeah graphics arn't 'blow me away' but who bought the Wii for that reason? All in all i think EA have done a very good job with this game and i can't wait for the next game in the series. Will they be able to improve on 5 stars, lets hope so.

           The Sorting hat would put it into pre-owned basket house.

          The Good;
          -A lot of the characters are voiced by the original actors from the film.
          -Getting to wander freely around Hogwarts is nice.
          -Some of the mini games are actually fun, especially Wizard chess. ( Though the AI on this game is laughable.)

          The Bad;
          -No quidditch, there is only one point where you get to ride a broom and even then you are indoors and the broom just zooms around in a circle that you have no control over.
          -Nearly every task in the game seems to involve walking from one end of Hogwarts to the other just to talk to someone.
          -To pull off a spell you make a gesture with the Wii remote. This is fun at first but sometimes, especially when in a battle, you can feel like you're just suggesting to Harry what spell to pull of and it's up to him whether he feels like doing it or not. Keep suggesting and he'll do it eventually.
          -Lastly and this is my biggest complaint. For a game that is called Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the game play has almost nothing to do with that story. Most of the time you're just doing random generic tasks. Don't expect to go riding the Thestrals to the Ministry or explore the forbidden forest and look after Grawp, because none of it is in there.

          Overall, I'd say this game has a lifespan of one weekend tops. At times it can be entertaining but ultimately it's an unfulfilling experence.

           EXCELLENT GAME!!

          Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is an excellent game for Nintendo Wii. I would strongly recommend it to anyone that is a fan of the Harry Potter series. Someone that has never read the books or has never seen the movies may still have fun with the game - but not to the same degree as a Harry Potter fanatic would.

          First off, I must say - the entire castle and grounds are absolutely beautiful. You can spend hours just wandering around and admiring Hogwarts. The cool thing about this game is that you can actually do that. You have tasks to do, but you can pretty much get them done whenever you feel like it. I think they refer to these types of games as "sandbox" games.

          I've read some horrible reviews about this game. If you're a diehard Harry Potter fan, ignore those reviews - you will love this game. The frame rate is fine, I know a lot of critics and players have had issues with that.

          There are a few problems that I have with the game, but they are not really that big of a deal. First off, the motion controls are not always the best. Sometimes I'll do one spell and it'll do a different one (whichever is best for the object). For example, if you need to 'Reparo' something and do the spell for 'Reducto' instead - it will, most of the time, 'Reparo' that object. Another small problem I have is that, for whatever reason, it has a hard time picking up the 'Stupefy' spell. To do the spell, you are supposed to push both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk forward towards the screen. Sometimes it works when I do that, other times it does not. That ends up not being that big of a deal though, because there really aren't as many duels in the game as one would want/expect. When there are duels, I usually just use the other spells, (especially 'Protego' to deflect a spell back at the caster) and I'm fine. It also says in the game that if you hold 'B' while targeted on a person, they will either run away or duel you. I've actually never encountered a time when they challenged me to a duel - they always run away.

          Though Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has a few flaws for Nintendo Wii, it is an amazing game nonetheless. The pros that the game brings far outweigh the cons. If you are a Harry Potter fan, or just enjoy games where you can wander around and do whatever you want - this game is a must have

           good for the price

          | | See all suyo11's reviews (4)

          for a starter if u want tips for the game u will have 2 ask a friend who has got the game or surf the net as ron and hermione give really naf tips. when u first get it it is really good but gets worse and worse as it goes on until u fight voldemort as dumbledore which will probably be the best experience of ur life. after a couple of fights including sirius and other popular characters it gets really boring as u have 2 gather up all of dumbledors army 4 a second time doing harder and harder chores 4 them. it gets 2 a point where it is almost impossible to complete. i had it since it first came out and i still haven't completed it. all in all i say it is a must have 4 the price.

          ps:the events at the ministry deserve 4 star all by themselves.
          pps:after u have a fight with the slytherin in the transfiguration courtyard u can challenge any slytherin to a fight by keeping hold of the b button and doing a spell on them.

           Brillant but hard

          This is agreat game but it's hard and i don't go on it that much. At first it was a bit hard then i starded to really love it. It was really good. I love going round the school grounds but i have got to a bit that i can't do. It's a good game but not the best.
