Easy for the most part

The hippogriff ride is too difficult for anyone, so don't tell your kids to finish the challenge before you buy the next game in the series. I'm 20 and I couldn't do it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (8 ):

Not only will kids have a great time reliving the events in the book, but the spectacular graphics of this game make the world come alive. Water flows, fabrics billow, and the Hogwarts castle is presented in amazing detail as kids turn the camera 360 degrees to view vaulted ceilings or mosaic floors. This PC game is less complicated and easier to play than the console version, making it the ideal choice for families with kids ages 8 and up. The two previous Harry Potter PC games were great, and this one is even better - this game is a fabulous way to continue the magic of going to the movie or reading the book.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
