I just dont think that this game was developed the way it should have been. The entire game is just minigames that will take you through Harry and his friends' stay at Hogwarts. The Kinect does work very well for the game and the game is extremely easy. The graphics are not the best, and the story is just read out to you and then you ill play a minigame on what ever part you are at. As a huge Harry Potter fan and a Kinect fan I can honestly say I was disappointed. There might be some fun here to be had for a while and if you are a huge Harry Potter fan then why not just rent it? Thats the beauty of Gamefly.
i was so exited to get my harry potter for Kinect. but then I was sadly disappointed. first, im a child and I could not do custom story. I want a child custom story option or something for it. and second, everything was a mini game. third, the game is too short! fourth, the mandrakes were just to noisy. and that is why I don't like this game. I don't suggest it for anyone. but this is my opinion. you can buy the game if you want, im not saying you cant. but this is not that good. if you wanna buy this game, then go ahead. this is just my opinion.
I love Harry Potter. I grew up reading them since I was 5 and I picked up that first book. When I play this game I found it very easy to get into it. I was completing everything one after the next with 5 stars using my created character. I was shouting all the spells I could to attack the oncoming death eaters, and pushing back the inferi and the dementors. The only real problem I had with it was the way my character looked. the face was all spotted, and couldnt really see my glasses. Also the kinect lost sight of me on the times when I had to turn, but not as many times as the first series of kinect games would. You could really see how they tried their best to improve on the kinects functionality. I would reccomend this game to anybody whon is a major harry potter fan, or just anyone who loves a good kinect game.
