    It's a sport with seven players per side, and four balls. All players are on broomsticks.

    There is one Keeper per side, who defends the hoops.
    There are three chasers per side. who try to put the Quaffle (non-magical ball) through the hoops for ten points.
    There are two Beaters per side, they are armed with clubs to whack Bludgers (two magical balls which seek and attempt to injure players) away from their players and toeards the opponents.
    There is one Seeker per side (Harry Potter is a Seeker), whose only job is to catch the Golden Snitch (Tiny golden ball with wings which zooms around the field extremely fast) . If the Seeker succeeds, his/her team gets one hundred and fifty points(thanks stDeaReG), and the game ends. This is the only way to end a game of Quidditch.

    almost correct Daimos, the snitch is worth 150 points.

    Pretty good game actually, nice control and not too hard for the little ones (and not to easy for some fun for the older people).

    I haven't tried yet but perhaps you play the role as one type of player such as beaters only.

    the controls are just like the average soccer game, where the closest one to the red ball thing is the active plave and then u can pass it on to another player and that player becomes your active character...simple but effective

    as far as I know Quiditch is based on Soccer (AKA Foot Ball in England [​IMG]) and Rugby, combined with the Wizard and Witch stereotype of flying on a Broom...its quite a cool game

    Since it's EA, just think if they changed the name if this ever got famous:

    Quidditch 2004
    Quidditch 2005
    Quidditch 2006
