Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizard community is in denial about his encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. Dolores Umbridge, an official from the Ministry of Magic, teaches courses in defensive magic, but this leaves the young wizards unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces that threaten them. Harry teaches other students, in secret, how to defend themselves.
Harry and his friends are back again for another year at Hogwarts, but thing are about to change in Hogwarts for the worst. Previously, Harry had an encounter with Lord Voldemort in the graveyard in front of Riddle Manor. The people are worried now that Voldemort will once again rise to power. The Ministry of Magic is condemning the idea and is in denial that he is back. The Ministry sends Dolores Umbridge to Hogwarts as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to inform the students that there is no need to use such powerful spells because there is nothing to harm you. Wrong! Since Hogwarts is now under the control of the Ministry, Harry decides to build a secret society to learn with fellow classmates what they need to know to defend them against Voldemort once he attacks with his army. The Order of the Phoenix is a secret society of wizards that fight against Voldemort and his death eaters to prevent harm in the world. Will Harry and his friends come together to defeat Voldemort once and for all?
The games graphics have become better tramautically since the first games of the saga. Since the release of the Xbox 360 and PS3, the standards for game graphics are so high. The game is filled will amazing adventures that Harry and his friends have to go through such as flying through London being chased by Deatheaters or fighting off the Battle off the Dementors in an alley near Harrys home. One of the best story lines I believe in the whole series of games.
