I don't care what people are saying about it - this is a GREAT game! (DS Version)
I got this game as a birthday present for my Nintendo DS. OK, I know people might say its lame and boring, but actually for me, I found it rather fun.
Lets start off with the graphics. Sure its a bit blurry and cartoony but hey! Do you expect game platforms such as the GBA, DS to just whip up outstanding graphics when its Harry Potter? Come on guys, its not a big deal and it's the gameplay that matters!
Secondly I LOVE the mini-games. My favourite are the classrooms games (Charms, Potions, Herbology especially!) and I also like the After-School Games. Exploding Snap was cool, I love Gobstones but Quiddtich was the best! Well, I started off as a poor player but ended up completing all the levels and winning every match against Slytherin! Boooooooooo Slytherin!
And the missions! I know sometimes you just run around Hogwarts but isn't it fun to just explore and plus there's Wizards Cards, Gobstones etc. which are scattered around Hogwarts to be found! Besides some of the missions were awesome! Like retrieving members of DA, making potions to cure creatures, exploring the OoTP Headquarters and duelling! Speaking off duelling the climax of the game is really cool! I got past the Death Eathers, Bellatrix and You-Know-Who... Voldermort! (Actually I was stuck for ages at the part when Sirius and Harry are duelling against 3 death eaters, but I found you just had to cast Flipendo trio at them!)
Now I completed 86% of the game. And I'm on the final and hardest mission! You have to retrieve all the Wizard cards, gobstones and Berti Box Beans in order to finish the game! I practically looked EVERYWHERE but I still need to find 5 more - it's VERY hard!
Overall, one of the best games I've ever played! And if you're put down what everybody is saying about it don't be! Just take it from me, a person who nearly finished the game and I say, its awesome!
Thanks game creators! I love it!
