This review is from: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - PC (Video Game)
This game is pretty good, but it pales in comparison to the first game. In the first game, the music had a definate magical twist, but the music in this game just sounds like a normal platform game. Madam Pomfrey's room is a specific example of this. When the music is reused, however, it sounds great.
There are some improvements in this game, like the fact that the characters' mouths move, and that the spells now chase down hte object it's being cast upon. Even so, it wasn't really fun to play like the first game, when something new was added to make it harder, like sneaking past Filch, or having to catch the flying key like a Snitch. but the second game doesn't do anything like that. It just adds spiders or Fire Crabs to make that part harder. Even the baskilisk was ridiculously easy to beat. Even the cheat codes aren't fun anymore; on the first game, my sister and I had hours of fun playing with a Super Jump code, but there isn't any such thing here.
Harry Potter II is an okay game, and I would definetely recommend it to play, but compared to it's prequel, it just doesn't work.
