Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire

The good:

The graphics are really good compared to the other harry potter games I've seen and has more detail and depth to it. The voices are done really well in my opinion and controls are fairly simple but with a few faults.

Some of the enemies are pretty difficult because they start to swarm you later in the game but start off pretty easy and in small numbers. The triwizard tasks mix things up and it's not just wandering the same four or five levels looking for triwizard Shields but this search is what the game seems to revolve around.

If you have played any of the previous HP games you will be familiar with the bean currency which you will use to buy cards that will help you throughout the game. You can play as Ron and Hermione as well as Harry, with each having their own cards, abilities and dialogue.

The bad:

The game is really short and really repetitive so it gets boring fast and then I beat it in nearly a few hours. You cannot roam Hogwarts and the game is extremely lacking in characters and enemies - there are only three different enemies to fight against and get really boring and irritating.

The artificial intelligence is kind of lacking too. For example, when I move a rock to cover a mosp entrance they move it back allowing more enemies to come and kill us and when you go to levitate a rock out of the way only one member of your team will help when you may need all three.

The movement in the game can be really irritating as sometimes you get stuck against a wall or in the middle of the level and have to cast random spells to try and free yourself.

They were really lazy with the cut scenes they are like comics, still pictures with little movement. I'd say the only good thing about this game are graphics, audio and the fact it's harry potter. I didn't think it was fun and would encourage you to really read about the game before purchasing.

Summary:

I prefer sticking with the book, as the game does not quite live up to the book or the movie and I think they could have done a better job making this more fun, creative and challenging.

More characters and enemies would have been an improvement as would a more creative stage setup and more light as the entire game is so dark it can be difficult to play in a well lit room.

Overall play time could be longer; it should probably take about fifteen to thirty hours to complete the game and find everything. I recommend this more as a novelty or display item than a game and would recommend looking i...

Maybe Not The Best Idea?

The good:

~The graphics are better than before.
~You can switch around players in your party.

The bad:

~The gameplay doesn't allow for wandering around, as in past games.
~The cutscenes aren't interesting to watch.
~The camera angle is often awkward.

Summary:

Well, here we are again, with another Harry Potter game, which is, of course, part of the larger Harry Potter enterprise. What makes this game different from the others? Well, in my opinion, it's about the worst one yet. I admit that this is the first game I reviewed that I just could not finish. Why, you may ask? Well, let's discuss this.

Basically, all you have to do in this game is run around and defeat monsters. Also, you're on the lookout for 'Triwizard Shields', which are used to get you to the Triwizard challenges (if you've read the book or seen the movies, you know what those ...

Harry Potter on two screens? Cool!

Summary:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire shall be released for many different consoles and portables, but the DS version is unique. The developers have thought up new ways to utilize the touch screen to create a game that is both challenging and fun to play. The ability to play as Harry, as well as Ron and Hermione, adds an interesting element to game play, in that you need to choose the character that has the best strengths in the situations you'll be in. Pick Harry for the best attack power, pick Ron for the fastest player, and pick Hermione for the best defence stats.

The GRAPHICS-
