Harry Potter games used to be quite good. No, really. Offering up Hogwarts as a kind of open world sandbox was an excellent idea. For tie-in games, they were actually fun to play, offered up a fair amount of different gameplay styles and truly rewarded exploration. I'll readily admit to buying Order of the Phoenix for a fiver just for the Achievements (I was going through a difficult time), but I actually really enjoyed the game.
Sadly, as Neil found out with the first instalment to the series finale, someone decided that making above-average movie tie-ins was anathema to the status quo and must have demanded a return to the mediocre and the risible. I don't know whose idea it was to turn Harry's last stand into a third-person shooter, botch it with rusting mechanics, insufferable lag, woeful pacing, dreary graphics and about as much excitement as a brown paper bag...but something went wrong.Don't buy this game.
