"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" is a computer and
video gamethat was released on 11 November 2005, a few days before the movie release of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (the fourth in the " Harry Potter" series). Both the game and the movie are based on J. K. Rowling's " Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", the fourth novel in the "Harry Potter" series.
The game follows the three main characters of the movie — namely Harry Potter,
Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley— and there is an entirely new spell-casting system that will allow for collaborative spells. The characters themselves will more closely resemble their movie counterparts than in previous games. It also has higher-quality graphics than the rest of the "Harry Potter" video games. However, the game play in the fourth video game is much more action-oriented, which is a change from the previous games.
In addition, players can play the game with friends, and can combine their magic and spells to make them more powerful. Players can also capture moving beans using "Accio" and increase their power with collectors, creature, and character, cards.
There is no RPG iteration of the game, unlike with previous titles. In addition, it was pointed out that unlike the previous instalments, there was not much room to "run around" such as in the second game where you were allowed to move freely within the castle and on the grounds. It also should be noted that it was decided to not include a different version for the PC, unlike previous versions.
The game is divided into several non-consecutive levels, some of which are locked at the beginning of the game until the player collects enough Triwizard Shields to unlock it.
It should also be noted, that even though the PSP version is a port, it is missing the level Prefect's Bathroom.
