the game has gotten a lot better sice the terrible part 1. it was kicked off by the graphics being better and the spell wheel is not there so the combat is better. however it still has that call of duty feeling like petrtificous totalus is a zap spell and its like sniping. expulso is like a machine gun and stupify is like a rifle.this time the plot and settings remain where there supposed be instead of a huge mix up. but overall its a good game and is right for the plot.

Needed Multi Player to Justify $50 Price Tag

This game does feel like a sequel to Part 1 – the controls, level design, and style of gameplay are almost the same as the original Deathly Hallows.
In this game, you go through 12 levels, battling Death Eaters, evil wizards, and Voldemort himself.
But this time around, you get six spells, and each one of them is vastly different from the others – and most of them can be compared with a gun in real life.
There’s a spell that fires magical bullets like a pistol, and one like a semi automatic rifle. There’s one that acts like a grenade launcher and sniper rifle.
And the last two spells don’t have a real life equivalent – one lets you blast through a magical shield and the other lets you hit several targets at once.
I like the varied weapons this game offers, and I had a lot of fun going through the levels, blasting the bad guys and collecting the hidden items.
But this game is not worthy of a $50 price tag. The main mode features a 3-5 hour single player adventure. After that, all you can do is either play through that mode again, or play through one level in Challenge Mode to see how fast you can get through that level. And the Challenge levels are locked; you have to unlock them by finding icons hidden through the levels in the main mode.
I wanted some multi player features – features like on line death match, split screen death match (like in Goldeneye), and I really wanted a co-op mode.
The fifth level is tailor made for two-player co-op mode. Here, one player can play as Neville, picking off the bad guys while the other plays as Seamus, planting bombs on the bridge. This would make the game so much more fun.
But there are no such features available. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 just doesn’t live up to the premium price tag it carries. RENT IT.

Weak

Boring

I loved the old Harry Potter games (1 and 2 for PS1), but this one sucks. It has no creativity in the tasks it asks you to perform. It has nothing but shooting Death Eaters the entire game. The dragon scene (which could've been a pretty cool obstacle to defeat) was just passed by as part of the story line. Overall not worth getting, even for a die-hard Harry Potter fan.
