The game is a sequel to the Harry Potter Hogwarts Challenge game. The player is back at Hogwarts, attending years four, five and six, and engaging in activities incorporating elements from the fourth, fifth, and sixth films. This sequel would feature classroom gameplay and activities which take place in Harry's world outside Hogwarts.
As with the previous game, the player must successfully complete the activities associated with a particular year before moving on to the next, and each gameplay activity will be set up through establishing shots/location clips from the films, with narration providing any instructions or other information relevant to that activity. Students must finish each year and advance to the next by completing a year End Challenge inspired by a pivotal event from each of films four, five, and six, respectively.
The first player to complete each activity for all three years will be allowed to play a bonus activity, and will win the game.
To play the game, all you need is a DVD player and DVD remote control. No game board required. Can be played by one to four players. Fourteen activities are featured in this DVD game.
