    8.0 Presentation
    Nearly the complete Potter package. Gorgeous menus and the most immersive Hogwarts yet. Impressive variety and dozens of unlockables. Some cinematics look great, but the transitions are jarring.

    8.0 Graphics
    One of the prettier games on Wii. Huge, detailed world with unsurpassed variety. Loads of characters. More detail than the norm. Runs in 480p and 16:9 widescreen. Framerate suffers, though.

    9.5 Sound
    Outstanding. Orchestrated music and great voice dialog by many of the real movie actors. The sound effects are top notch, too.

    7.5 Gameplay
    Fun, but with some flaws. Epic universe to explore. You will marvel at Hogwarts. Using the Wii remote to cast spells feels great. But Harry handles heavily and there are too many fetch quests.

    8.0 Lasting Appeal
    The Order of the Phoenix delivers a satisfyingly long single-player adventure with lots of unlockables and mini-games.

    7.8
    Good OVERALL

    As a huge Harry Potter fan im most defintely picking this up when it comes out. :smilewinkgrin:

    I'm glad you can explore Hogwarts thats why I hated the Goblet of Fire exploring was my favorite part of the older ones.

    Hmmmm sound pretty good, especially the roaming around bit and the casting spells with the wiimote. May decide to get this. Hope you guys have pre ordered your books, though im sure WHsmiths wont sell out if you live in england >.>

    I guess thats your opinion but ever since the Wii's been released I think they've only given about 5 or less games over 8....

    Well your right :p , but I've still really enjoyed the games they've given high scores. A review is very subjective and every one will give a different score, if IGN Wii really enjoyed a game they'll give it a high score, some, like you may not agree but others will agree :)
