If you are a collector of harry potter memorabilia, Go ahead and get the game. Other than that, spend your money on a good game like Metroid Zero Mission or Super dodge ball advance
The GBA cut of Quidditch World Cup is much better. Since the play is almost entirely two-dimensional (it's side-scrolling with you controlling movement across the field), it's pretty easy to follow, and scoring is challenging enough even on the easy levels to make an interesting game.
You have a lot more control over your special moves and beaters in the GBA version than in on the PC. Instead of waiting for the game to award you a chance at a special move or beaters, you just build up enough energy in your energy bar and then do it. It makes it a lot more interesting and unpredictable.
The international stadiums are just as cool as they are on the PC, and the games are much more challenging even on the lower levels.
The downside, though, is that it's very difficult to win on goals alone, the way Ireland did in Goblet of Fire. The Snitch race typically happens well before either team scores more than 150 points, so it makes the Quaffle a bit superfluous.
All in all, a worthy effort at simulating an extremely difficult sport. I bought it for my daughter a few days ago and she hasn't stopped playing it yet.
