For me the Harry Potter video games haven’t been the best and I personally don’t like them. But I absolutely love the Harry Potter books. It all depends on whether you know this is fantasy or not. If you or your child can’t tell the difference between fantasy and what’s real then you shouldn’t be doing anything Harry Potter (reading, playing, watching). I totally agree with you Kaikuro.

Some christians don't have too much of a problem with it and some do. So I think the review was comprimising on the two sides of the spectrum. Me, I'm on neither side. I don't care. I have friends who like Harry Potter and I have friends who despise it. Harry Potter is fantasy, though the witchcraft themes are evident, its more about friendship then anything else. Then, of course, it is 'witchcraft', and that is something God tells us to stay far away from. So I'm on neither side and I don't really care about harry potter. So yes, it is good to say this game should be given a 0 out of 5. I think its also okay to say it is a 2 or 3 out of 5. Just throwing that out...

To me it would be more fit 0 of 5 in the worst occasion 1of 5. Because I believe that Christians should stay away from games, stories and movies of that type. I speak like this for this is a web site where people come to see what the ratings are for christians. So I don't think that the game should even be mentioned there are a lot of other games to get reviews upon than this.

Same here. I like the more neutral way this article was written, although I'm not at all pro-HP, it's always good to look at things from a neutral stand-point. Helps you learn things. ““I highly recommend reading the book or watching the movie (or both) before playing OotP, due to the fact that the plot isn’t explained all that well.”

But if you're going to play the game, then you obviously don't have a problem with HP, and you should read or watch it.
