As the saga of Harry Potter looms towards a conclusion at the cinema it's time for video games fans to get the game they've always wished for. Based on the blockbusting movie and the original novel, the first part of the Deathly Hallows finds Harry and his friends fighting for their lives in a much more action-orientated adventure than usual.
Take on the Death Eaters in amazing third person action
|Battle with a friend in the exclusive Kinect levels|
|Spells can be used for defence as well as attack|
|He may be a wizard but Harry still needs to take cover|
The time for exploring Hogwarts and solving puzzles is over, as the young wizards battle Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort himself. The game is designed like a third person action title, complete with an intuitive cover system but with a wand as your only weapon.
Not all of the spells are purely for attack though, with Leviosa allowing you to create and destroy cover and Confundo giving you the power to turn enemies into allies for a brief period. There's never been a Harry Potter game like this before, with enough action and intrigue to suit every fan.Key Features
- Action Hero: The most action-packed Harry Potter game ever with intense third person combat, stunning graphics and a huge range of new spells to learn.
- Wizards' Armoury: Use a range of authentic attacking spells from the simple Stupefy to more powerful but difficult to use magic such as Crucio and Expelliarmus.
- Dark Arts: Use non-lethal spells such as Leviosa to move objects, Confundo to bewitch enemies, and Expecto Patronum to rescue allies from Dementors.
- Levelling Up: Gain experience as you fight and you can unlock and upgrade Harry's abilities and magic, with up to six different spells available at any one time.
- Kinecting Fans: A unique co-operative two-player mode for the Xbox 360 version features support for the new Kinect motion control system.
This developer was founded in 2007 by Electronic Arts, after they bought Burnout developer Criterion Games. Also based in Guildford, Bright Light specialises in family games and has worked on the Harry Potter tie-ins as well as original titles such as Create and non-game projects like Flips.

none of these exist in this game! all you do is walk around boring un-original, un-inspired maps shooting!! with absolutely nothing else but repeatedly pull the right trigger, you will soon grow very tired and bored of this game!
This game is also a rubbish representation of the story at at points i feel parts of the story are ruined by this games 'lets make this as cheap as possible approach'.
you can use kinect with this game which i cannot personally review as i dont have the hardware although it just sounds like a couple of mini-games to try stop you feeling as mugged as a muggle!
game-play graphics are not bad however expect to get many close ups of rocks with the awful camera, and the cutscenes are probably amongst the worst quality i've seen.
Please dont make the same mistake as i did and purchase this game !
For such a short game it feels such a long dull effort !
I, like most of the others on here have played and completed all the previous HP games and loved them for their diversity of game play, through the use of puzzles, applying logic and having knowledge of the plot in order to complete tasks and challenges. This game however seems to have ditched everything that set HP games apart and has followed the same old "let's just get bad guys cropping up here, there and everywhere that you need to shoot,/find cover/throw things at!"
I know the film has taken a darker turn than it's predecessors but was that really a sound enough reason to change the format of these games so drastically! Surely, just make the challenges harder make cut scenes more sinister, but if it ain't broke don't fix it! Yes, Call of Duty might be one of the best games in history... But if I wanted to play CoD I'd have bought CoD! bad move EA... Bad move!
Also... Tried the Kinect game out too... It just gave me severe arm ache after 4 minutes of solid flicking of the arm/wrist... I failed the first challenge... Mainly cos it was not truly responsive to your movements and you just had to do the same thing over and over and over and over... Get the idea!
Overall... I am terribly disappointed! Just hoping Lego Harry Potter years 5-7 are worth the wait! Boo hiss EA... You've ruined my evening and my bank balance to the tune of £40! Thanks a bunch
Like in the film Harry is no longer at Hogwarts and therefore the levels are set in the wider world, including large chunks of forest. Gone is the exploration of a larger map, replaced instead with a series of linear levels that see you cover and shoot enemies in a way that feels like the poorest of men's `Gears of War'. The levels look very similar and feel completely the same - spamming the fire button as yet another 20 death eaters walk around the corner. The game is dull to the extreme and the 8 spells on offer mean little as you spend your time using the most powerful and direct, or face instant death.
To try and extend the game beyond the meagre locales of the film there are some additional missions where Harry must save Muggle born wizards from Voldemort's cronies. These levels are even worse than the core gameplay as they are ridiculous stealth based missions, or overly complex defence missions. When you do get back to the main storyline you are forced to watch poorly pre-rendered cut scenes taken from the film.Read more ›
