Great game, way better than the first!

  • Nov 11, 2002
Picked up a copy of this game for PS2, and while I can't comment on the other platforms, I can say that this game is a lot of fun.

It does play similar to Legend of Zelda in that you acquire things and spells as you move through the game to help out.. lots of side games and other tasks included to give you a breather from regular gameplay and rack up points for Griffindor.

The only downside to this game (and the reason it gets 4 instead of 5 stars) is the frequent and lengthy load times as you move between parts of Hogwarts.. sometimes 15-20 seconds of loading for every couple minutes of moving around. A "warp" feature similar to Zelda would have helped out here and taken away the need to always go back and forth through frequently-used parts of the castle.

Great graphics, good level of difficulty and LOTS of fun.. highly recommended!
