This game was very repetitive, very short, and with the story behind they really could have done so much better with this game. It took me 5 hours to beat it, if that tells you anthing!! Waste of a game, would not have kept it even if it was free!!

I'll say this before anything else; i didn't expect much. The first Deathly Hallows game wasn't much to chew on and either was this, even IF the developers tried to make a third-person-shooter-esque type gameplay. But i'll break it down for all of you.
Storyline/Gameplay: Well it turns out Harry's adventures are coming to an end and as the series closes up, we play as Harry during the dire days of his seventh year as a wizard. The gameplay isn't much and if you've already read the books, neither is the storyline. I'm hoping the movie isn't this bad. The gameplay pretty much mirrors the last game's style; take cover from enemy attack, pop out, shoot some spell, do little damage... repeat until Death Eater is dead.
Visual/Grapics: I didnt give this game a poor rating 'cuz of its sucky gameplay. Its because of the graphics! (the sound didnt really prove any problem, except in cutscenes where the voice didn't quite match the movement of a character's mouth). Textures and enviroments often felt patched together badly and didn't quite appeal to the eye.
Controls: Very clunky and oddly placed. Although bearable, i think the Developers should've re-mapped a few.
Multiplayer/Online: Ooh so if we collect enough tokens in the Single Player Mode, we can play as Voldemort (Oh no, i said his name! xD). But it doesnt bring any new spells or features to the not-so-bad Multiplayer modes, in fact, its more of a small little easter egg to show to your friends for fun.
Well, here we have it. Enough poorly-done "movie game" that is marred by bad graphics, terrible voice-overs, clunky controls, and many other faults. Believe it or not, all of the Harry Potter games have great potential, like the "Order of the Phoenix" game, which was brilliant. This game fits in with Transformers: Dark of the Moon and many other bargain big titles.
Thank you again, my people, for checking out ARAGORN on GAMEFLY! (And yes, this next bit is nessecary.....)
