Making its GameCube debut, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets continues the adventures of the bespectacled boy wizard as he returns to Hogwarts to begin a second year of studies. Things do not go smoothly, however, as the game closely follows the events found within J.K. Rowling's second book in the international best-selling fantasy series. Harry Potter and friends Hermione and Ron must investigate a terrible danger: students are mysteriously turning to stone.
Assuming the role of the Boy Who Lived, players explore Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and the Forbidden Forest from a third-person perspective. To help them in their quest, players can attend classes to learn a variety of spells. These spells are then used on enemies, but if they are not cast correctly, a comical or hazardous misfire may result. As players try to solve the mystery of the petrified pupils, they will fly around Hogwarts on the Nimbus 2000, participate in a 3D game of Quidditch, and converse with fantastical creatures such as Moaning Myrtle.
In addition to the main adventure, players can participate in a number of mini-games, such as removing the gnomes from Mrs. Weasley's garden, collecting Wizard Cards, or battling others in Dueling Club. Game Boy Advance owners can also link the handheld to the GameCube to access extra features. A Harry Potter sliding puzzle game is available for their handheld as well as an exclusive GameCube level in Gringotts Bank. While the Game Boy Advance version of Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets is required in order to unlock Gringotts, players will also be able to unlock an additional level for the handheld game: the Forbidden Forest. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
