    I actually remember this game. It took me three weeks to beat it. Even the final boss was just a dumbed down "shoot your spell through The Mirror of Erised!" match.

    I remember getting this game at a school flee market in 3rd grade. I think that was the first game I didn’t like.

    I thought it would be like the CoS on GBA. I consider that one the best of all the portable games in the series.

    Just…bear with the lack of save points during the 20 minute stealth sections of CoS GBA and you’ll (probably) stay sane

    I am excited to see your video on GBA year 2. I grew up playing that version and still play it to this day when I remember it exists. Thanks for the videos.

    The worm mission was the worst bad enough you can’t jump but getting them over the platform just no. Also the chess game sucked in this version what a joke

    being your fan must be torturous as they have to wait almost a year each for your HP reviews. Checking your uploads I see that you have finished college and that this is more of a side-gig for you but damn, finding you and knowing I have to wait almost a year to see the next one kinda sucks. regardless, keep up the fine work.

    I was surprised to find out the GBC and A versions were made by the same developer considering the different genres.

    I don't mind the spell casting in battle situations much, or the repetitive obstacle course gameplay. I find this game has lovely Potter world feel which helps balance out the repetitive stuff for me or rather makes it still enjoyable enough. But what I absolutely hate is the fact that you can't jump. The endless pit death give me a headache, especially in Hagrid's garden when fetching something for him. If Harry was able to jump I think this game would be okay. Well, I do also wish this wasn't so linear and had more fred exploration. I agree the Chamber is better in many ways, I just wish its graphics were more colourful likd the first game's and that there were other students to interract withbecause as is it feels like Harry, Ron and Hermione and Malfoy are the only students there.

    The music being just bearable on GBA can be because both it and GBC use Factor 5's MusyX. That does mean you have easy compatibility between platforms, but… Griptonite tried, I guess. Guess they didn't find reason to allow interactive music, or couldn't do it, and that's also the case in the sequel.

    Hey dude just found this vid, my immersive media teacher actually worked on the game. Apparently the marketing team at ea asked the devs to make the harry game. They decided to base it off zombie ate my neighbors but apparently that didn't work for the marketing as they wanted a puzzle game. It took them 3 months to put the puzzle thing before it was released. THANKS EA
