In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts. The wizarding community is in denial about his recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. The Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students. The young wizards are woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces threatening them, leaving Harry, Ron and Hermione to handles things themselves. Harry prepares a group of young wizards calling themselves "Dumbledore's Army" for the extraordinary battle against Voldemort and his Death Eaters that lies ahead.

The game itself tends to cut scenes quickly moving through the story really quick but performing spells as Harry Potter and interacting with Hogwarts and its students never gets old. My favorite thing about this game is what the background characters say such as "-at least Professor Snape can see how much of a moron Harry is" or "Gryffindors suck-" it adds to Harry's anger which he has the right to be in this game with a lot of students against him in this game.
Graphics wise well the game came out in 2007 so that should give you a little heads up that the graphics aren't going to be amazing.
Fun game for a Harry Potter fan. Even remembering all the speed are easy and my controller corresponds well with the motions (just a basic PS3 controller)
However the number of spells is limited to about 6 normal spells and 6 battle spells, and the battle spells don't get used much. Also the goals/puzzles are relatively simplistic and local. And each puzzle has one solution that you either find/perform or don't. For example, there's no such thing as an inventory. You can't carry things from place to place. Most of what you're doing is casting specific spells at a particular location to get points, and many of the "puzzles" don't really even involve much thought (although there is one "aha" puzzle in the game that I had to think a moment about). You just get points for seeing things that you can manipulate and manipulating them. I think the most sophisticated puzzle involves stacking things in order to climb on top of them and reach something. The rest of the points are awarded for trying the right spell on the right target, and often times they make very little sense.
You are free to explore the entire landscape pretty much as you like, which is nice. But that kind of freedom isn't sufficient for me. The number of locations to explore is limited. They are visually deep, but there's just not that much to explore and do at these locations. I expect a little more from a PS3 game in that regard. I prefer something deeper with more exploration, and a greater variety of mechanics and interactions with other characters and objects.
The game lives up to my mild expectations given the background and price, but it's nothing spectacular.
