To add it, you can now play against Slythrein, Huffelpuff and Ravenclaw in Qudditch...and you can lose. When you sneak out if you're caught you can get house points taken making the game more realistic.
Now you can interact with Ron, Hermione and the newest student Ginny. This game was so much fun overall the only hard part I can point is the Incendio challenge.
Battling the Basilisk with the sword is not too hard but at the same time addicting.
The problem with this fantastic game is EA or whoever failed to make enough Silver Discs. It is mostly Blue discs. Blue discs do not work in older Playstation 2s, even with the Scotch tape trick.
The Scotch tape trick I believe only works for younger Playstations. Because not enough silver discs were made, its ridiculously difficult to find one.
It's a fantastic game, one of the best Harry potter ones...but unfortunately EA or whoever made a big mistake when they made too many blue discs.
I'm a huge "Harry Potter" fan, so bought the COS game on Amazon after buying a used PlayStation2 from a cousin. I had already played the PC game, and was looking forward to seeing if there were any or many differences in the same game, different platforms.
Really, they are completely different games.
As I am unable to judge as a gamer, I will explain it as a "Harry Potter" fan, and compare it to the COS PC game.
It's analog controlled, meaning you use the left joystick control to move the characters. Harry can use several spells by the end of the game, however, you have to switch them out if you want to use them. It can be annoying to go to the Remembrall (menu) to do it each time, but it really doesn't take that long.
The loading times on the game aren't terrible. In my experience, it beats the terrible loading times of the PC game. The graphics are all right - the characters don't look how they should in the books, and do not resemble the film actors very closely, but they are easily recognisable. There being little to no autosave was quite annoying - having to save it every few minutes, fearing Harry "fainting" and starting over, was quite annoying, but does quickly become habit, and shouldn't be too time consuming, over all. The PC game autosaves, and the characters look identical to the ones in the PS2 game - go figure.
You can't skip cutscenes. That would get really old upon playing it a second or third time. I cannot imagine playing this game having never read the books, or seen the films - it barely covers the plot at all. People who haven't a clue of what COS is about would find themselves lost - the PC game is much better in both of these aspects.
You get to go to the Burrow and Diagon Alley. If you cannot go to Universal, this is probably the next best thing. You get to go into the Leaky Cauldron, Gambol and Jabes, and a couple other places. You get to go into Knockturn Alley! In the PC game, the gameplay itself begins at Hogwarts.
Hogwarts is beautiful in this game. Easy to navigate, but much bigger than it is in the PC game. The thrill of being able to take Harry on his broomstick and soar over the castle is too much for words. That experience alone was worth buying the game. That said, there are many doors in the castle that are locked. Just that - locked. Even the 'Alohamora' spell doesn't unlock them, so they are just there for decoration - it is very annoying. The PC game does not have that at all, I'm pretty sure.
The PC game does not let you fly out of the Quidditch stadium.
Quidditch plays a pretty big part in the game. I had terrible trouble with it, as the gameplay basically has you fly through hoops. Flying isn't terribly easy if you don't have good hand-eye coordination, but you can practise all you want with Madame Hooch at the flying pitch. You can, however, replay matches until you win, but you cannot go back and replay a match once you've left the Quidditch stadium. In the PC game, you can.
The collecting of the beans is more important in PS2 than in PC - in the PC game, you can really only buy wizard cards and Quidditch gear. In the PS2, you can buy a spell, vials, stink pellets, wizard cards, etc. The collecting of the wizard cards is pretty pointless in both games, but seems to have more of a point in the PC game, as you can win a special challenge.
Overall, I think I prefer the PC game - it's richer when it comes plot, and I prefer the Hogwarts interior. Quidditch is easier for me, but it could be because I am more comfortable with the controls. The plot for the PS2 game is very bare-boned, but the Hogwarts exterior is priceless. It's fun to play this sort of scavenger hunt game Gryffindor Tower has set up - dodging the prefects can get old. It's fun to run around the Burrow and Diagon Alley. Overall, I would recommend this game as a must-have for any HP fan, but if you have a PC, also buy the PC one, as the COS experience simply isn't justified by the PS2 game.Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets
