Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince Review (Xbox 360) 2

            Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince Review (Xbox 360)                                             Is The Trip Back to Hogwarts Worth It?The latest Harry Potter installment, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a very simple game.  The game essentally consists of three "souped up" mini games.   All of them are fun, but stomaching each one for more than 45 minutes is painful.  It's a good thing that the main storyline does a really good job of rotating the three games and split...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review 0

'The Boy Who Lived' has started his sixth year at Hogwarts Academy for Witchcraft and Wizardry, and such Electronic Arts has brought this latest endeavor to the small screen on every current platform.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: A Review 0

What made the last Harry Potter game relatively enjoyable (for a movie tie-in) were the solid visuals and exploration.

Not bad, but suffers from a self-inflicted Catch-22. 0

Since the days of E.T. movie-based video games have been known for one thing above all others: sucking. Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince is not without merit, but given the nature of interactive entertainment and the fact that it is not uncommon for a game to provide 40+ hours of gameplay, it is baffling that Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince doesn't borrow more from the 800 page novel on which it is based (to legitimately pad the game’s length) while using the visuals from the fi...

Not terrible, but unforgivably short. Decent rental. 0

ProsThe games environments, Hogwarts specifically looks great.Theres a decent enough variety of stuff to do.The games generous with achievements.ConsBut the game is over before you know it.The character models for the most part look alright, save their cold dead eyes.. Also Draco's head looks like it was whacked in with a shovel. Perhaps he had some kind of accident since the last movie and this is actually accurate, I don't know. But he looks like a freak.The voice acting is quite dreadful. If ...
