Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix (PS2)

Harry Potter is a prodigy among thousands all over the world. The story revolves around this character who attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This simple boy (or so he thinks) is overwhelmed with the responsibility and legacy that he has to live up to. The books follow his life as he learns more about magic and himself. There are very few who haven't read the books or heard his name. I haven't read all the books, but I'm still a big fan of the series, and the movies as well. You don't have to be a genius to realize that Harry Potter as a part of interactive media is a great idea; basically a game on Harry Potter makes a lot of sense. But sadly, the past games based on the various movies have been a major disappointment, with none of them even remotely representing the Harry Potter universe in its full glory. This time around, although the game looks a little better, it plays just the same. You will enjoy the game for the first 1 hour or so, but then the rest is just plain. But I would recommend every Harry Potter enthusiasts to try the game; you never know, you might like it. Let's read more about the game.
