Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Nintendo Wii, 2007)
About this product
|In the Wii edition of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, players must flick their Wii Remote to cast the initial spell and then maneuver the controller in different directions to produce several outcomes. For example, pushing the remote forward causes the enchanted item onscreen to be thrust away from the character. Gamers may take the role of Harry Potter, Sirius Black, and Professor Dumbledore as they explore the areas in and around Hogwarts. The teachers and officials in the magic community refuse to acknowledge the return of Voldemort, and so Harry and his friends have started training other students how to defend themselves against the Dark arts. Other aspects of gameplay include attending Herbology, Charms, Transfiguration, and Potions classes as well as completing side-missions for professors.|

It's like you're in the movie!
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is just like walking through the movie. There's little to no Heads-up displays like health bars or whatever to get in the way of the beautiful visuals. You can do all sorts of side-quests with people like Nearly-Headless Nick and earn points to make your spells stronger. I like the way the Wii controls get you waving your wand like you're Harry. If you love Harry Potter you HAVE to get this game! Happy Gaming ^_^

I like this movie so decided to buy this game for my kids. They were very happy. The game is pre-owned but it's working perfect.

Great for Harry Potter fans; decent otherwise.
Myself, I am a Harry Potter freak. I can most certainly understand why this makes the game appeal tremendously to me, whereas it might not do the same for a casual fan or anyone else.<br>The greatest part of the game to me is the massive castle grounds, which can provide loads of entertainment without you requiring to even do anything in the game. Running from the Gryffindor common room out to the owlery in real time is just a lot of fun.<br>The graphics are rendered beautifully, and even the characters themselves don't look all together horrible. The only problem I could see was framerate issues, and it would get jagged and slow at times for no real reason. This isn't that huge of a problem, but I was disappointed with it.<br>The game itself is also quite fun. The mechanics of using the wand to cast spells is really intuitive and you will have yourself lifting chairs in the air and repairing broken vases almost instantly. This is also a bad thing, in that the difficulty in this game is basically near zero. I switched it up to "very difficult" immediately upon starting the game, and it still feels like an easy level game to me. I suppose that is because it is primarily made for children, and I am a grown man who likes to play Harry Potter video games.<br>Overall, it was well worth my purchase. Being a huge fan, I can see the appeal of owning the game and running around Hogwarts Castle whenever I choose, and perhaps having a playthrough of it in the future if I were to get bored or something. To anyone who is not a huge fan, however, you can easily complete it during a rental period, so I would not advise you to buy at full price.Read full review

Great game if you love Harry Potter. It is difficult to figure out at first, but after awhile you start to get the hang of it. I am not very good at video games and I love this game.

Always a fan
I cant get enough of anything HP. I just love it all. HP on the Wii just makes sense. Once you try any HP game on the Wii you will never use a controller again.
