For a gamecube game this was loads better then I expected! I played it on my Wii using the gamecube controller. The game closely follows the DVD and book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It starts off in the Burrow with Ron Weasley and his family, where there are various exercise to do to get used to the game and the various movements on the control pad.
The game then starts to mirror the film in that Harry and Ron have to fly back to Hogwarts using the enchanted Ford Anglia, before bumping into the Whomping Willow. The rest of theschool year doesn't get much better, as increasingly vicious attack on the students start to happen. To try and find out who is behind the attacks, Harry must learn about a dark chapter in Hogwart's past involving a previous student of Hogwarts known as Tom Riddle and defeat his enemies.
Not as geared towards children as the fist game was.
