Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1: The Videogame
could have been better
This new Harry Potter game is not nearly as good as some of the previous games. This time around it is really just fighting fighting fighting with occasional cut scenes that don't really look to good, with non flowing conversations and faces that look robotic.
Well, the game play depends on which system you are playing it on... Wii? Great. ps3? good. Xbox? Not to good with kinect, not too much movement, and controller just doesn't feel natural. PC? Also good. All together though, the game play wasn't the best it could be. The spells were annoying to switch from, causing you to have to take cover just to change a spell if you are in battle,and you will often find the new taking cover button rather annoying, for example, your character doing it automatically.
The story line is nothing like the movie, making every little part of the movie into a major fighting seen, or an annoying stealth level where if a muggle sees you you have to start over. But over all, this game can follow the story mode at times, but it doesn't urge you onward to find out what happened next.
ps. I will be making a youtube account very shortly for those who are interested, though I do not know what my account will be or an exact date, so pay attention to my newer reviews to see news on it.

Fantastical, whimsical, and surprisingly in-depth.
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part One is, at first glance, a Gears of War ripoff. The chest high walls, the weapon wheel, the spells that resemble guns... it's all there and very apparent. However, that doesn't mean it is what it looks like. These features are executed so well that the atmosphere of the game blends with reality to create a vastly superior experience to any previous Harry Potter title. Harry's Dynamic Cover system is useful for evading incoming attacks from threatening Death Eaters and he one other enemy in the game. The variety of spells at his disposal keep things fresh and interesting, with a machine gun spell, a sniper rifle spell, and shield spell, and claymore mine spell, a grenade spell, and many more. These and the other things packed with Modern Warfare- I mean Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows make it intuitive, exciting, and an overall breath of fresh air in the stagnant pool of first and third person shooters that pollute our era of gaming.
One of the Best Harry Potter's Yet.
First I wanted to say that there is only one bad thing about this game. Between storyline parts of the game which are quite accurate and very enjoyable, you must complete about three minigame sequences. They aren't completely horrid, but can get boring after awhile. The transition from movie to video game was done better than any yet, and the shooter style wand combat was really cool in comparison to the previous style. The game also is the perfect level for casual gaming, not too hard but definitely a challenge at some points the first round through. Secondly, the Kinect Feature is actually quite brilliant and funny to watch, (All you see is your friends flailing their arms wildly in midair). The hand movements work pretty well with the Kinect and are sure to be a hit with the little ones. As a True Harry Potter Fan I can honestly say this game didn't suck.
One of The Better HP Games
This game is more of a shooter came compared to the other games. It did a beautiful job of translating the movie into a game. The only bad thing about not only this game but all of the other HP games is that for some reason the sound gets really loud during some parts and really quiet during others. So it gets irritating having to keep changing the volume on the tv up and down.
aweome for anyone
best harry potter yet i got ityesterday and ive played for20 hr
I got this game today and I am very impressed. I thought the only good ones where the 1st and 2nd because they were original. I didnt like any of the others because the storyline kind of, well, wasnt very good. The game isnt much of a Harry Potter rpg style game. It is more a first person shooter. I think it can compete with some of the more popular games, like Conduit and other shooters like that, but it is not a game that is ground breaking like Call of Duty or Halo. I would recommend this game to anybody that likes shooters and Harry Potter. This game is $50 well spent.
A EPIC FAILURE
I got this game for Christmas and was really excited to play it so I put it in and within the next 30 mins of playing I realize.. THIS GAME IS A FAILURE! There are more cons than pros. The very few pros are: Great Graphics and a bigger selection of spells... The cons: this game just can't keep momentum because when your in the middle of a battle and you need to switch spells you have to stop the game and pick a spell I don't know about you but for me a MAJOR shooter game player it kills your momentum big time! Next the quest away from the main story line are just plain pointless and the Kinect feature all I can say about it is "Stupid" all you play do is play mini-games. I would not buy this game maybe worth a rental at most
DONT BELIEVE ThE OTHER CRITICS
Being a harry potter fan and the last movie coming out after reading all the books. I decided to purchase games 5 6 7 and 7.5. This one is by far the best game. The graphics are really some cutting edge stuff. The sound is awesome if you have a nice theature system, it would be great to crank up the volume with this game. I did manage to beat the game in one day after about 10 hours of play invested into it. The overally story is great too and the gameplay is as well. The story is quite accurate with the movie in terms of speech and stage setting and the gameplay was best for me i think because, although this was a linear game (not a free roam the castle game) the action was great. I highly recomend this game.
Very Well Executed
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is definitely a first for me. In a long line of violent and gory M-rated games, it is my one and only T-rated game. I was very hesitant on whether or not I should buy it, and in the end, being a Hardcore Harry Potter fan, I did. Let me say I was NOT disappointed. The game throws you right into the action from the moment you start, until the moment you end. The graphics are very good, better than I had expected, and shooting death eaters and snatchers was very fun. The spells work great for the way it was set up (which was kind of like a 3rd person shooter, only with spells). Also, they adapted the movie to the game really well, but I think they followed the movie more than the book, and if they followed the book, it would have made the game a bit more longer. Overall, I really enjoyed the game, and recommend it to HP fans, hardcore gamers, and casual gamers. Can't wait till part 2!
