ActionTrip has posted a new review of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the latest game incarnation of the popular book and movie series. In Order of the Phoenix players must help Harry and his friends prepare for battle against the villain Voldemort. ActionTrip gave the game a score of 68 out of 100.

From the review:

As far as the gameplay itself is concerned, there's quite a lot to experience in terms of content. Fans, in particular, are sure to get immersed into the adventure, as they explore the vast setting that is Hogwarts. Secret passageways can be discovered everywhere, while casting certain spells throughout the school may bring additional bonuses, which are used to unlock behind-the-scenes footage and similar extras.

That's all very well. Unfortunately, a majority of gamers are likely to expect greater depth than what this game has to offer. It does provide a more than satisfying amount of content, but it eases down on story elements, failing to offer a satisfying explanation on what's actually going on. Hence, things might be a bit confusing for those who are new to the whole universe. Furthermore, the missions and tasks rarely go beyond solving a vast range of mundane puzzles or fetching a specific item for someone. Occasionally, the game throws a few nice moments such as using the Cloak of Invisibility to sneak past Dolores Umbridge, but that's about it. Quite simply, the game needs more challenges and a more dynamic gameplay, involving a lot more action.
