* A Potter game to buy?

Gamecube/Nintendo
It's no secret I find the crop of Harry Potter video games to be incredibly lame - but perhaps, just perhaps, the Wii could do something nice for the franchise.

The Wii-specific controls for the game seem remarkably well put together. Once Harry's wand is drawn, the Wiimote can be used to directly control the spells you cast. Everything is handled through accelerometers; there is no pointing in the game whatsoever. Any of the game's spells can be cast quickly and easily, merely by a flick of the wrist. Thrust the Wiimote forward, and Harry will propel an object away from himself. Motion upward with both the Wiimote and nunchuk, and Harry will cause an object to levitate in the air.
That has real possibilities.
