Macsimum News recently 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. Macsimum gave the game a score of 6.5 out of 10.
From the review:
Thankfully, EA has included a Mauraders Map, which you can summon to help you find directions to places or people. As you explore, you may come across other students playing games such as wizard chess or Gobstones. You can play them, as well as complete other tasks, to earn points that can beef up your spellcasting abilities. The graphics of The Order of the Phoenix are very good, capturing the spirit of the movies. The full reivew is available at the link below.

However, the game’s voices are uneven. Harry sounds pretty much like actor Daniel Radcliffe, but other voices, such as Professor McGonagall, sound very different than their cinematic equivalents, which is a bit disappointing. But that’s not the main problem with The Order of the Phoenix.
The magical duels—which make use of wizard spells from the story—are fun at first, but seem repetitious after a while. Also, while Hogwart’s offers what feels like an almost limitless world to explore, your chores between duels (helping classmates with their homework in order to pass the O.W.L. exams, stopping Slytherin bullies from picking on other students, etc.) are pretty mundane and grow a bit tiresome as the impact of the graphics wears off.
