It’s been a long time since fans had Harry potter game for consoles and, while the story is not based on its own adventures, it will be quite special to return to Hogwarts. So with Hogwarts Legacy Now announced and unveiled, it’s time to take a look at how the Potter movie games have fared with Gamespot reviews in previous years.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (4/10)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

The last Potter movie game in the EA series (which does not include LEGO titles) was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. It loosely followed the film of the same name, with players able to take control of Harry, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger as they barged into Gringotts, escaped the Death Eaters in Hogsmeade, and then faced Lord Voldemort in the Battle of Hogwarts.

It sounds pretty exciting, but its gameplay left a lot to be desired and the graphics weren’t up to par either. Gamespot gave it a low 4/10, calling it “short and tedious.” It’s pretty brutal and puts him last on this list.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (5/10)

that of harry potter The fifth year at Hogwarts is a difficult year. No one believes him about Lord Voldemort’s return, Rita Skeeter and Cornelius Fudge want to discredit him, Dolores Umbridge deals him terrible treatment and Sirius Black dies in the end, leaving Harry heartbroken.

Still, video gaming wastes the potential and, in truth, is a pretty dull and boring business. It’s repetitive, with fans having to continually rally members of Dumbledore’s army before engaging in tame battles. As a result, he received 5/10 – and that’s not the only one …

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (5/10)

Rinse and repeat. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a fascinating book, especially since it delves into the history of Lord Voldemort. Fans learn that he was raised in an orphanage, had a horrible grandfather, and that his mother bewitched his father to fall in love with her via a love potion.

But the game, again, did not reach the same heights. This is roughly a carbon copy of the The order of the Phoenix and doesn’t take long to play through at all.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (5/10)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Another Potter game to get only 5/10 is the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The film is rather slow, which means that the game still had its work cut out for it to try and produce a brilliant title. But, even so, he certainly did not realize his potential.

Combat has been tweaked, with fans using wands as guns – like something from Call of Duty itself. The character models and vocal dialogue weren’t impressive and it was all repetitive again, with fans having to play through a slew of similar missions that always end with waves of Death Eaters being defeated. A rather boring affair.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (6.1 / 10)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Video Game

In 2001, Harry potter makes its debut on game consoles for the first time. The the sorcerer’s stone The movie meant loyal fans flocked to their local Blockbuster and other retailers for their own chance to break into the stone walls of Hogwarts and become a wizard. And the game performed pretty well, scoring 6.1 / 10 with Gamespot.

It’s fun to walk around the castle and its gardens, solve puzzles and soak up the magical atmosphere. It’s described as a “run-of-the-mill game that diehard fans can enjoy,” but it certainly has its flaws, which is why it doesn’t rank higher.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (7.2 / 10)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Video Game

In 2004, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in cinemas around the world. And the video game of the same name has also been released.

It followed the same free roaming model of the previous two titles, but the graphics were considerably better than anything that came before. The title was also the first that allowed people to play as Harry, Ron, and Hermione, while you could also explore the lands of Hogwarts on Buckbeak the Hippogriff. There’s plenty to do and plenty of secrets to uncover along the way as you seek to keep the Dementors of Azkaban at bay.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (7.3 / 10)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Video Game

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was the second game in the series to be released, released in 2002. It follows the same pattern as the the sorcerer’s stone but is nonetheless nice and gets higher scores due to its brighter graphics, which are obvious.

An excerpt from the Gamespot review reads: “Offering a refined blend of solid graphics and solid gameplay, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a marked improvement over its predecessor. Our favorite part is sneaking around, with the game’s stealth missions both fun and scary.

Goblet of Fire (7.3 / 10)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire video game

The goblet of fire is one of the strongest films in the Potter series. Harry endures a typically tough year at Hogwarts, thrown into the Triwizard Tournament despite being considerably younger than other contestants Cedric Diggory, Fleur Delacour and Viktor Krum. And then he has a showdown with Lord Voldemort at the end.

The game does a good job of making the three tasks fun and different. It’s a shame that there aren’t any free roaming elements and there are a lot of rollbacks, but the format change was a refreshing change back then.

Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 (8/10)

Lego Harry Potter years 1-4

LEGO games have always been well received by fans. Their first try, LEGO Star Wars: Episodes 1-3, set the tone for what was to follow. And Harry Potter received the plastic treatment in the summer of 2010, so fans could replay Harry’s adventures in a format noticeably different from anything before.

It’s pretty awesome, although it’s a bit too childish for many older players. And he fully deserves his score of 8/10 as a result, with the ability to roam freely around Hogwarts particularly enjoyable.

Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 (8/10)

Lego Harry Potter years 5-7

A score of 8/10 is also Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7. This allows fans to play through the events of the The order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince and both Deathly Hallows movies.

It’s not too different from his previous installment, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The graphics are better, the puzzles a bit more interesting, and the title, although plastic, is darker than before. There is a whole load of things to do and collectibles and GameSpot expresses the belief that the series came out on a “fun” note.
