3.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter - Ordre du Phoenix - Wii July 30 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Amusant dans l'ensemble, Contrôles un peu difficiles, la manette ne réagit pas toujours très bien... Ce jeux a la facheuse manie de nous coincer dans des tableaux malgré nous, par exemple, lorsqu'on est pris pour jouer au jeux d'échecs des sorciers, il n'y a pas moyen de s'en sortir sans terminer la partie! Reste à souhaiter que vous aimez jouer aux échecs...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the WII July 23 2007
By Elizabeth Sathre - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My family rented this game for a week and My boyfriend who's 30 and myself love it. It's a perfect game for the WII since you actually get to use the remote as a wand and perform spells. You get really in to it. The only con is that there is a lot of walking around to find things and to do your tasks. There's some little bugs with the remote in doing spells, sometimes it will do a different spell than the one you want. My 9 year old LOVES it. He likes how it's interactive and how the characters are more real. He did have a little trouble with some spells but after practicing he did good. I would recomend this game for anyone who has a WII and likes Harry Potter

3.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous to look at, but can be very tedious Aug. 8 2007
By Martin Quiazon - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a newcomer to the Harry Potter game franchise, so I can't compare this game to the previous entries in the series.

I'm a fan of adventure games in general, especially the classic titles from Sierra and LucasArts, so it was a great treat to have such a large and immersive environment to explore.

Hogwarts looks gorgeous, and the game designers have done a magnificent job making it look every bit like the sets from the Harry Potter films. The castle is HUGE, and you'll spend quite a bit of time discovering all sorts of hidden goodies. The voice acting is top-notch, using some of the actual actors from the film, and the character models do resemble their movie counterparts.

All that being said, the actual gameplay is tedious. Most of your time will be spent running errands. Advancing through the game consists of talking to a character only to discover that he/she needs an item in a wholly different area of the castle. Puzzles are sparse and not terribly challenging -- all you really need to do is figure out which of the spells in your repertoire need to be cast on the available items. For the most part, you'll be using Wingardium Leviosa to move objects around.

The Wii-specific wand controls are fun in their own way, and add to the feeling of "being there" but in the end the actual game isn't that deep or challenging. Replay value is limited, as there's really no deviating from the main tasks, besides hunting down every last hidden chess statue or broken masonry in need of a Reparo spell.

I can only really recommend this to hard-core fans of the Harry Potter books and films. As a game it's not that great, but it's a beautiful presentation of Hogwarts that you'll spend hours exploring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hogwarts simulator w/ a little OOTP Story & Chess Aug. 25 2007
By Phantasmagoria - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The previous Harry Potter Games all have their highs and lows as far as gameplay meets the Potterverse goes. This time around the focus is around the storyline of Order of The Phoenix specifically the film adaptation. The castle is a fully realized vision full of all the things you would expect and a few surprises. The Marauders map figures large into gameplay as well with black padfeet leading your way from destination to destination. This is all wonderfully implemented, the real issues here are a slighty subpar graphical quality at times (jaggy) and characters that look like lifeless CG versions of themselves. The wand controls can be problematic but if you use sublte hand movements versus big grand gestures you'll find that you can get spells to fire in a reliable fashion. The game is fairly short with the first 50% being made up of the search for members of the DA.. The voice acting is above average and the spell duels are engaging but there are too few. Overall EA has brought a respectable digital version of OOTP to the table, but in the end my favorite part of this game was the minigames. Chess and Gobstones which add some much needed fun diversion to a fairly straightforward game.

5.0 out of 5 stars More puzzle/adventure than action March 19 2008
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm the mom in the family and I bought this primarily for my Harry-crazy kids, but I've played through it myself and enjoy it quite a bit. I think it will appeal to casual gamers like me who like to think through situations. For example, you level-up in power by collecting points throughout Hogwarts. My kids didn't notice that the beds in the dormitories and the hospital wings all needed to be made. Poof! 200 points right there for tidying up. All the torches throughout the castle need to be lit, and there are clever nods to the previous books (hint: you can open the Chamber of Secrets in Myrtle's bathroom). When the story line is complete, you can enter "endless day" mode and try to figure out the hidden points you haven't discovered yet. Some are quite challenging.

I recommend this, along with "Endless Ocean" to those parents out there who bought a Wii system primarily for their kids and want to enjoy it without a lot of frenzied shot-em-up action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally immersion April 12 2008
By L. Hawthorne - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I borrowed my friend's Wii for a month when he went away and I bought this game because I felt that the Wii controllers would be fantastic for all the spell making. I was not disappointed! Exploring the grounds of Hogwarts was amazing and the the graphics were extremely detailed. It totally brought the story to life. Bear in mind that most of my gaming experience has been with the old NES and SNES so perhaps the graphics would not be so impressive to gamers today. My only complaint is that sometimes the controller would get a bit confused about my movements when casting spells, but apart from that I absolutely loved it!
