We were a little disappointed with the kinect part of the game. We thought you would get to go through the story line as the kinect harry potter, but the kinect portion is just challenges and the actual game is a bit complicated. Great graphics and effects though, just was hoping for more kinect play. When entering story mode the game moves along very slowly as you have to watch every intro movie and storyline movie.
I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, which is the only reason I'm giving this game a high enough score. If I weren't, I would probably give this game a 2. There are so many problems in this game, whether if it's the so-called cover scheme, or the pointless side missions, this game is bad. While in cover in this game the spells rebound at you and hit you in the face. The other spells are cool, but pretty much pointless. Stupefy is your best bet. It is not at all powerful, but it's quick which you will pretty much only need. In some levels, you have wear the invisibility cloak, and your in this weird first person point of view. The bad thing is that you cant see anybody in this point of view if they are right next to you, and you can get caught fairly easily. All in all, a bad game and im very disappointed. The best HP game for me was the chamber of secrets. In this game, the boy who lived might wish he hadn't.
