Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire
Review
J.K. Rowling’s fourth Potter novel adopted more adult themes to hook readers growing up with Harry, Ron and Hermione. Ironically, though, the console spin-off dumbs down Harry’s moody, magical adventure.

Unlike the free-roaming worlds of earlier Potter quests, Goblet opts for linear levels that steer players down a narrow route, preventing fans from exploring the worlds they grew to love in the books.

Worse, the clever puzzles of other Potter games have been ditched in favour of kid-friendly hack-and-slash combat and shallow broomstick-flying missions, and the spell casting — surely a crucial element of any game featuring wizards — is now context-sensitive, only allowing players to weave magic when the situation dictates it.
