Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix :: Wii Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 25, 2007
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Explore Hogwarts, battle Voldemort as Dumbledore and wave your Wiimote like a want to cast spells in this new game from EA. Here’s our Harry Potter game review.

As Harry returns to Hogwarts for another year, suddenly nobody believes that Voldemort has returned and Dolores Umbridge, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, has a favorite spell - Harrypotterdetentionus! EA's new Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix game drops before the movie and lets you play as Harry, Hermione, Ron and more as you train Dumbledore's Army to battle Voldemort, explore Hogwarts and more. Is this new game for Wii any fun? Find out with our Harry Potter game review!

Back to Hogwarts

If you've played the other Harry Potter games from EA - like the Goblet of Fire or Prisoner of Azkaban, then you know how this game works. You control Harry or one of his friends and run around a 3D Hogwarts solving puzzles, completing quests and battling wizards - all by using magic spells that you learn as you play. You can also go on dozens of extra quests to find items and unlock more stuff.

Big, Bigger, Biggest!

If you're a Harry Potter fan, this game is a dream come true! The folks at EA have rebuilt Hogwarts to let you go anywhere. Plus, with all of Harry's new spells you can go crazy - tossing rocks around, blowing stuff up and more. But, the coolest part of the whole game is waving your Wiimote like a wand to cast spells - it's incredible!

Too Big for the Wii!

It's a huge game, but that's the problem - it's too big for the Wii! Nintendo's little white box can do a lot of cool stuff, but it doesn't have the power of an Xbox 360 or PS3. This makes the graphics a little choppy and a few parts of the game slow down as you're playing.

Magic or Monstrous?

This new Harry Potter game has everything a fan could wish for, including a great way to cast spells. But, it's too big for Nintendo's little box - the game stutters and crawls just enough to make it a bit frustrating. It's still a terrific game with hours and hours of awesome Harry Potter fun, but it's not quite perfect.

Thumbs Up:

  • Casting spells by waving your Wiimote = awesome!
  • You can explore all of Hogwarts.
  • Lots of spells to learn.
  • The Marauder Map helps you get around.
  • Play as Harry, Hermione, Ron, Sirius Black and even Dumbledore as you battle Voldemort!
  • Thumbs Down:

  • Too big for the Wii - it slows down and lags.
  • Lots of running around, not much wizard dueling.
  • Game Rating:
    4

    Available for: Wii.
