The Chamber of Secrets game follows Harry in his second year at Hogwarts as he attends classes, duels, and plays quidditch. The game opens with Harry meeting Ginny and Mr. Malfoy at Flourish and Botts where Malfoy puts the Diary in Ginny's bag. Ron and Harry fly their car to school and land in the Whomping Willow. Then, it's off to class where we get to meet Gilderoy Lockhart. We also meet a lot of tiresome fire crabs and orange snails, which we can knock out and push around and we get wizard cards and beans all the time.

Some nice improvements over Game I are: The character's mouths move when they talk, Harry turns around when you back him up, and you're told if doors aren't going to open so that saves trying again and again. Best of all, you can press Enter to bypass the cutscenes!

I don't like that you get a Loading Game screen every ten minutes or so. You can wander all over the school at any time, which, while fun, can get you off-track if you want to complete a challenge. The Save Game books are still too far apart. There are also long periods without music, and the music isn't as eerie as in Game I. But these are all minor things compared to the overall excitement of the game. (Hint: You'll need to trade beans to make lots of potions to complete the Aragog and Basilisk scenes.)

It's definitely addicting and lots of fun for all Harry Potter fans, especially if you liked Game I. Have fun. (P.S. I hope you're not afraid of spiders!)

This game is one of the best PC games I have played so far! Harry Potter and the chamber of secerts Starts out with the narriotor guy from Game 1, only insted of the still pictures it has moving pictures. The narratior narrotars until the womping williow sence, were you must resuce Ron.
Then from there you go to classes! Your first class is with Lockhart but this time instead of having to trace the spell with your mouse you use your arrows to the places the hit!
In this game you also get to mix potians and explore the grounds as long and as far as you like. You can go to the Grand Hall and the Quidditch Picth and the Forbiden forest as much as you please as long as it isn't during class.
There also is a Weekly House Point ceriomony! The house with the most points can go to the bean room and collect as many beans as you'd like but you will be put on a timer...
Now, Fred and Geogre have also set up a bean trading post! This allows you to trade beans with potion ingreadants or a Nimbus 2001 or Wizard cards or all kinds of things!
HOPE YOU ENJOY!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is now a computer game that's out for the PC as well as PS2 and other platforms. While they could have sold millions even with an awful game, this one is pretty good.
The game starts out with a reasonably good 3D model of Harry being rescued in a flying car by his friends. They fly back to Ron's house, where their mom promptly scolds them for their hijinks.
They're sent out into the yard where Harry (i.e. you, the player) start to learn how to use your controls. You're shown how to use your want, how to gather up beans. You move along to degnoming the property, which is great fun! You have to knock over the gnome and then whirl and fling him as far as possible.
You get Wizard cards, chocolate frogs, you play Quidditch, and try to earn house points. There's some button-pressing games which are quite fun, but there are also a lot of puzzles for you to reason through. While the game is one player, other people get involved in trying to figure out the riddles and offer advice. Even when the puzzles are figured out and the game is won, it's still a great deal of fun to go back and play again, to try to get an even better score.
This is sure to be a hit with any Potter fans, and is great for all ages of gamer.

I'm not a gigantic Harry Potter maniac ...but I must say the game is good. The 3d graphics are very impressive, good music and easy-to-remember-controls: ctrl, alt, and arrow keys. But the end of the game is sort of shocking; the end shows Harry in the Great Hall with lots of other people clapping, and then the credits start rolling. And you think, "Oh. It's over." And then you just sit there and stare at the screen.
But the game is SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE. The mouths move, Harry automaticlly follows the Snitch, the spells are easier to learn and there is more of Hogwarts to explore.
You can also use your beans once you find them. You can trade them for cool stuff. The characters are humorus and fit in with the game. But Snape wasn't mean at all. He was actually helping Harry make a Wiggenweld potion.
The spiders were awesome. The Aragog level was fun, too(I was the only one brave enough to do that level; my brothers and my mom were hiding in the kitchen)and a little hard.
There are more spells to learn too. But good ol' Flipendo is still alive and kickn'. But in the first game you used Flipendo ALL THE TIME. You even used it to defeat Voldemort(and it's supposed to be a FLIPPING spell!). But now you use Ritusempra, Diffindo, Skurge and Spongify(a REALLY fun spell!!!).
Hermione isn't folding her arms all the time in this game. It was really annoying in the first game. Ron is funnier and they wait for you when they are leading you somewhere(instead of letting you get lost in the castle).
This is great game. Get it!!!
