Harry Potter Video Games

Is it just me or do the Harry Potter video games seem a bit easy? In my opinion they need to be far more intricate and need to include tougher challenges. A little more plot would also enhance the games. I know the games are meant for children but they are really disappointing the older readers and appreciators that still play video games. As pathetic as that sounds, I think something needs to be done. Feel free to share your opinions and beliefs.

Re: Harry Potter Video Games

I think the ga,mes are just right because I know if they are too hard I'll just set them aside and not complete them, I liked the difficulty of #3 best because it seemed to be a bit harder but number 4 was unbelievibly easy, that game was a major dissapointment to me

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

The first two were OK, a bit easy, but they were fun for what they were.

POA I loved. Again it was a bit easy, but I loved the atmosphere and I loved that I was able to roam around the school and school grounds, ride on the Hippogryph's and so on. It was not only a fun game to play, but it felt like I was playing a online gaming/MMOG a bit...but without the other people.

I have GOF but I have yet to play it, but I hear bad things (not as fun as POA)

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I thought they were all pretty easy. And they just seem crappy in some ways. Poorly done, maybe rushed...

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I think I'd enjoy them more if I were younger. I've only played the ones for gameboy advance and I didn't really care for the first two but POA was pretty cool. I went through it sort of quickly but it had a cool feel to it.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I played the first two Harry Potter games on playstation, terrible graphics but it was fun and challenging in parts.

I have PoA on computer and I love it. Just like Neptune I love the atmosphere, how you can explore and how their are lots of students walking around the school (so it doesn't just feel the trio are the only students). The graphics are also stunning.

I have GoF and it definetly is not as fun as PoA. It's broken into levels and you can't explore the castle at all. The graphics are alright though.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I got the POA game for summer entertainment for my 10 yr old brother and he finished it the same day. so much for a summer full of easy babysitting.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

The HP videogames are pretty pointless. The only one worth playing is CoS.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

Chamber of Secrets for the PC is indubitoubly the best Harry Potter game out there. It really has no equal. It has a lot of freedom, which is one of the things that makes it the best of the series.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I think more plot is needed. It would be best to follow the story of another wizard or witch besides Harry & Co., and be able to create whole new plots without worrying too much about the book's story line.

They are also very linear. To have a Harry Potter world version of the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, I would gladly pay upwards of three hundred bucks. People who've played Oblivion will know what I'm talking about!

Or better yet, a Harry Potter MMORPG! (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) (Like Everquest, Asheron's Call, Star Wars Galaxies, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Dark Age of Camelot, etc.)

*shiver*

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

Game 3 was cool. It took me freakin forever to beat that last scene wear the patronu had to cross the lake. I am really not a fan of 4. It wasn't too difficult. I liked the idea that you really got to explore the castle in three. That would have been cool if you could do that in four.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

i like the hp games to a point. sometimes they are fun to play because some of the things that you do are interesting but after awhile it can get boring. if i had to choose a favorite it would probably CoS.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I really don't like any of the games at all. They are definitely targeted to children. I wish everyone would realize that not all HP fans are children. It actually seems to me that there are more teen and adult fans than children fans. I hear Warner Brothers is planning to target an older audience with the HP merchandise they will release around the time of the OotP movie release, so maybe they'll also make the OotP video game for an older audience as well.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

I wished ever since the HP games were out that they would allow the license to be handed to Square Enix, the makers of the Final Fantasy games. Given their attention to detailed plot lines, fantastic graphics and amazing opening sequences I always felt that an RPG Harry Potter game from that company could be simply amazing. Given how the Japanese also love to add heaps of side quests, secret characters and longetivity into their games and make them for ALL AGES, ala FF VII on the Playstation, if they wanted a truly great RPG based in the HP world they could look no further than Square.
Damn, I'm already salivating at the thought of how big and explorable they could make Hogwarts castle and it's grounds be, given their vast villages and dungeons in the final fantasy games. 20 plus hours spent completing those sections alone I'd wager.

Re: What do you think of the Harry Potter Video Games

i think they're really easy and i hated GOF because you couldnt walk around Hogwarts and do whatever you wanted.
My favourate is POA because i really enjoyed walking around the grounds and inside Hogwarts- i love doing that.
Im hoping OOTP will be alot harder and be able to walk around again.
