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.

           The best HP game to date!

          Free roam has returned to the Harry Potter game universe and I must say that it's better then it's ever been! The school is just a huge place to explore and without any load times at all (this is due to the streaming capabilities of the game engine). Sometimes Harry can't run due while the game is preloading the area you are about to explore, but this isn't something to worry about.

          A lot has changed in this new title. For one all the characters actually resemble their movie counterparts and 22 of the actors have actually been able to lend their voice to the game as well (Rupert Grint people). A really nice thing to have in a mostly movie based game. When walking the halls you can actually hear Fred & George calling Harry's name!

          The gameplay is very open ended and this adds a lot to the overall experience. The music and sounds are done nicely in combination with the voices. This being the first game to be released on the nextgen consoles (X360 &PS3) the quality has gone up a whole lot compared to the previous titles. Textures look great, the magic effects are really well done. My only note is that sometimes the characters may look flat in the emotional department. Don't expect the graphical quality of a Gears of War or a GRAW2 (not a lot of games have that yet) but it's good enough.

          Did I mention that Hogwarts is just huge in this game, it will take you a lot of time to discover all of the secrets and extra's. You now have a rewardsroom in the castle where you can go to view everything you've unlocked in the game including behind the scenes interviews with the actors and the development team.

          In short it's a must have for Potter fans and is totally worth it!

           Really Very Good !

          This game is very addictive and the graphics are very good. You have to recruit dumbledores army which is fun. Then you can duel any miserable slytherin that walks past and explore all the way down to hagrids hut. Great !

           harry fans rejoice

          I love harry potter the books and the films, so I had to give this a go. I was not disapointed, the detail at hogwarts is otstanding, the game plays a little slow but there is so much to do it will take hours to finish so at this price buy it. familly fun!!!!!

           Good game, but it seems unfinish

          I believe this to be a good game. I enjoyed it, but it has terrible problems, and seems to be bugged. Nothing a patch wouldn't be able to fix. Bring it on...

           Looks amazing but.....

          I bought this game on friday and by sunday i had completed the story and i didnt actually play it that much because i worked the weekend!! The game is visualy amazing. Hogwarts it very detailed and the fact that there are no loading times is awesome. You can go all round the castle and the grounds in all the rooms and everthing without any loading. The characters looks really good and a lot of the voices were done by the actual actorsAnother positive is the wand controls as on the 360 you use the analog stick rather than buttons so you get the feeling of moving the wand a lot better (obviously on the Wii this would be even better). However on the downside there are precious few combat situations in the game, no creatures ever attack you like in the other games and you only have a few battles a couple with some slytherin and a few at the end. You dont even have a health bar in the game thats how little combat there is. The game is mostly "go find this" "go talk to this person". Also it advertised that you can play as sirius and dumbledore which was crap as you play as each of them for like two minutes. The game was way too easy especially the end when you fight Voldemort it takes no effort. Overall its an ok game but doesnt last long enough its like they put all thier effort into just making it LOOK good but as a massive Harry Potter fan i kinda enjoyed it.
