Potter loses some magic

Ok one huge mistake the developers made with this game...no Hogwarts. I know it does not coincide with the story but a video game is meant to stretch those lines. Lord of the Rings did it successfully, EA did not even try.

The free roam in previous games was gold for me. Being able to explore Hogwarts and talk to everyone is what fans want, we want to be immersed in all that is Potter. EA bright light went with the third person aspect and failed miserably. The spells are monotonous and switching between more than two or three is a chore.

The enemies are extremely laughable and miss their mark in almost every aspect. When the stealth missions pop and you have the cloak, you still get spotted and possibly destroyed, its no fun at all.

Like I said, not having Hogwarts is a huge fail which is sad, I was really beginning to fall in love with the series. Taking a lot of steps back is a huge slap in the face to fans as well as Potter's legacy in folklore. Maybe hardcore Harry fans will get their come-uppin's, but most will feel as if they have been hit with a CRUCIO!!!....ouch

I totally agree 100% with everything that was said by Skennedy! Camera angles suck really bad making the game extremely difficult to play much less enjoy. Played all the other Harry Pottr games in the past and loved them but this one I will not recommend to anyone. Not worth the buy/rent.

Don't rent

Terrible game, every level feels the same, a lot of running around, every bad guy looks the same and a lot of reused levels. Doesn't match the movie very well either.
