IGN: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

Reviewers like to say that bad licensed games are for hardcore fans only, but that's a load of crap. Fans should be pissed about this game. IGN tried to think of the positive parts of the Half-Blood Prince, so they could write a balanced review, and all they could come up with was the fact that they like Harry Potter (not like that, shut up). When the only positive part of your game is that it has a trademark attached to it, then you've made a bad game. It's not that Harry Potter is broken, it's that EA has managed to take a world brimming with magic and turn it into the most tedious, mundane game possible.

The console version actually got a quite good score. dont see why people post the DS review here.

Yeah, according to the link IGN UK gave the PS3 version a 7.7, which is not bad at all for a movie-game.

I wonder why the portable versions of the game got to the front page, but not the console versions.

micro_invader3398d ago

I do. Although not so much for the more recent but I really did enjoy the first and second ones. This one looks to be alright on consoles, maybe I'll give it a rent if I'm really bored and really hot (damn you British Summer!.)

eamon just shut up, there are harry potter fans all over the world ( not me), and they would like this game anyway ;)
