Based on the 2009 summer movie blockbuster of the same name, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince transports fans both old and new to the beloved and action-filled video game universe of Harry Potter. In this most recent adventure players return to the famous Hogwarts school for wizards, as well as other surrounding parts of the wizarding world, to help Harry survive a difficult and danger filled sixth year.

The Story
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince the Video Game, Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.

Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different, but equally unavoidable adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates. And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealously, but determined not to show her feelings. Yet as romance blossoms throughout Hogwarts, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Gameplay
Like earlier video game releases in the Harry Potter franchise, the action in Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince the Video Game revolves around the exploration of Hogwarts and the action that results from what you uncover. The game features both an engrossing single player mode as well as local multiplayer modes for up to two players. During their adventures, players will have a chance to engage in exciting wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory. Players may even get sidetracked by Ron’s romantic entanglements as they journey towards a dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.

Key Features

  • Compete for Gryffindor in the Hogwarts Quidditch Cup as you take on Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin in the most exciting wizarding sport.
  • Perfect your Quidditch skills and prove you can dodge a Bludger and can catch the Snitch.
  • Take part in thrilling wizard duels, battling against Death Eaters in Hogwarts, Inferi in the Horcrux cave and much more.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Hello, need reader canary talented really.

The above mess is a Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince video game experience. And I know despite what I write, if you're here you will end up playing the game anyway, hoping I'm mistaken. I will continue if only to persuade you to rent the game at best or wait for the inevitable, monstrous price drop.

To Begin - The Story, Characters, and Sound:
If you needed to write a report on the Half-Blood Prince film, this video game wouldn't even be acceptable as cliff notes. Scenes cut in and out, not caring about anything silly like making sense.

The video game starts with a random brush up with Quidditch at the Burrow and then bipolars you straight to the scene in Diagon Alley with Draco Malfoy. Why? That question should be read as a scream.

And from there you jump from moment to moment like a mental patient, who isn't improving.

As far as the characters in this cliff note of cliff notes, everyone is at least acceptable or great. Great, as in the case of when the film actors lend their voice (the focus being on Rupert Grint-Ron). The acceptable being characters like Snape and generally the look of everyone. There is one huge exception: Hermione. The actress who lends her voice is fine, but the rendered character looks nothing like Emma Watson. She looks more like Mema Witson, and while she's a great girl and all, Mema isnt in Harry Potter. The real problem is that Harry and Ron look reasonably similar to Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint (having gone through the work in the previous game, whereas Emma Watson did not, to my knowledge) so Hermione, aka Mema Witson, stands out.

The music of the games is always either nice or fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and easy game for just about everyone July 2, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start by saying that I did not like the Order of the Phoenix video games - they were a lot of running around for nothing. If you did enjoy that game, you will love this improved game which incorporates what seems to be a completely explorable Hogwarts. As you wander you collect school crests. There is a storyline that sort of follows the book and you can wander off from the storyline to do other things.
There are three main game types incorporated into the storyline that you must participate in: making potions (like Cooking Mama); Duelling club (wand dueling); an Quidditch skills (mostly fly through hoops at high speeds). None of the games are particularly difficult which is a good thing for younger players. The game is rated 10+ and that certainly is appropriate as a 10 year old could play this without a problem. Advanced gamers may find everything a bit too easy, but it is still fun and visually interesting.

PROS: free-roam Hogwarts which feels very accurate; character voices/acting is decent; duelling is a lot of fun especially with the Death Eaters; multi-player.

CONS: potions is like Cooking Mama - it is a big part of this game; still lots of wandering the castle but with a great guide Nearly Headless Nick and many portrait shortcuts; Characters don't look exactly like the actors but close enough where you will forget this after a few minutes.

Overall it is a must for an HP fan even if you did not enjoy the prevous games. The XBox controls are great. The music adds to the experience though I'm not sure if it's from the film. Replay is available in Potions, Quidditch and Duelling. Also, once the storyline is complete you can wander Hogwarts in Endless Day mode to find all of the crests.

3.0 out of 5 stars the millionth mediocre game in a row July 2, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
in my endless optimism that someone will finally make a really great game i had a flash of hope for this one. i think it was maybe sometime last fall or late last summer, and it was because it had two things going for it. first, the previous game, order of the phoenix, created a big, thorough, really well done, hogwarts. i mean the game was rather bland and sometimes tedious, but in my fantasy of optimism i could say "hey, they've invested all their effort in the basics of this world then ran out of time and money, but next time they have all their groundwork already laid down for themselves!" then, second, the movie got delayed and so must follow a delay on the game, giving them a half year free time to work on this.
enter reality; small companies might put it all on the line with mild resources, but, when they succeed they get bought up by large corporations whose pure and overwhelming interest is wringing money out of everything they touch. they're not even that great at doing that, just powerful and remorseless. this game was made by a very large corporation. you can feel it. everything in it is just good enough and not an inch more. you got your nice environment that you can explore and collect crests. a bit thin, but at least it's some reason for exploration. the crests unlock, well, useless junk as far as i'm concerned (unlockable rpg ish skills would have been great here, but, oh, thats too much effort and the movie book connection here will sell most of the games).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not at all OOTP
Could have been great if the castle was still as interactive as OOTP. The change resulted in a much less entertaining game despite several improvements with activitites.
