Dawlish and the Archies, I’m actually going to look for my GB colour which has been gathering dust somewhere and buy those 2 games. I love FF VI (I assume it’s this one you mean), I’m actually replaying it right now. And that bit about Lockhart is hilarious :D I’ll give them a go.
To the person who said the music is from the films, um, no it’s not. It’s written by James Hannigan and this is well deserved IMO. But I can’t find the soundtrack for sale anywhere. Could have sworn it used to be on sale!!!
Oooops, my mistake, even though the games music was very similar to the movies, I did not know it was indeed original. And Dawlish and the Archies, are you seriously asking legitimate Harry Potter video gamers to find a game boy color and track down a harry potter game boy game older than time just so we can have a decent Harry Potter video game? That’s a ridiculous task to fulfill. And why can’t I have a good HP game on a next generation console? And a HP game has not received a higher score from Gamespot than a 7.5, and that was a long time ago, in fact that was on the HP GBA game you mentioned; and recent HP game have scored even lower.
Do they seriously deserve an award? I like the look of the games and the way Hogwarts is shown, but they tend to get boring after a few hours due to the look of things to do and because lots of areas cannot be explored
