Magical much?

This game, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, is intended to follow the storyline of the movie of the same name. Does it? No, not really. Its more of a "Dungeon Crawler" in which you run around little levels that make you take that certain direction with no freedom to run around casting magical spells in every direction. If that is why you brought the game for, then think again.

Storyline 3/10

The storyline to Goblet of Fire isn't the best, only covering 11 levels, which it could have covered more. The levels are quite straight-forward, with usually only one direction to go, or two directions, but one more obvious to follow than the other. The levels aren't the hardest levels to beat, with most requiring brains and chocolate frogs than brawn and magical power.

Graphics 3/10

The graphics aren't the flashest for the Harry Potter games, but besides the technical glitch every so often, and the height of enemies, you can always tell which character you are, and the spells you are casting.

Replay Value 10/10

In this game, I'd give the replay value a 10/10. There is something in every level that you must go back and do with other spells you collect, and abilities that you gain throughout the game.

Music 3/10

Music in this game is that classic, boring music that you end up ignoring after five minutes. Except for the Yule Ball beginner level music, which is quite catchy, all the rest is quite annoying in my opinion. I give it a 3/10

Now, with every Harry potter game, everyone wants to know the spells and the main question "Are they really good?" The answer to this is "sort of." They could have used the more common spells like the ones they used in the movie and in the book, but they came up with some pretty clever spells in this game.

Overall, this game gets a 5/10. Its not the most enjoyable game, but it is good for killing the boredom...

Rating:   2.5 - Playable
