ZeroTolerance writes: The Harry Potter games have always been something of a conundrum. You see licensed games, especially ones based on movies tend to be on the far side of entertaining. However, the shenanigans of the Hogwarts crew have somehow managed to be fun and appealing to anyone interested in the books or movies, and even to some that are not. I fall into the latter category. I have never been a fan of the series, and honestly when I fired up Half-Blood Prince I expected a world of disappointment. As it turns out these games are actually crafted surprisingly well, giving players excellent control, and a faithful recreation of their favorite characters and locations to play around in. This latest chapter also explores the darker side of the esteemed series, giving gamers another solid outing with Harry, Ron and Hermione.
