Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part’s One and Two (Short Review)
Just a very brief summery of how the game plays.
Well, how can I put this, we all stereotypically assume that all movie video games are going to be truly dire, but hold on, let’s now put our assumptions aside. Okay, part one of the two part deathly hallows wasn’t exactly good. Brightlight studios adapted the film into a game with minimal success. Granted part one has KINECT compatibility but forget that because KINECT works as well as I can water ski on custard. Hmmm the storyline is very good; the game covers some aspects of the book that even the movie didn’t which is impressive. The game play is terribly repetitive, the spells can become very boring and certain spells such as expelliarmus do not do what they are supposed to do I.E. expelliarmus is a disarming spell, in part one the spell is simply a slow overcharged offensive spell. Part two deals with this a lot better using the spell to disarm enemy shields. Let’s move away from the slow monstrosities of part one onto part two. Part two is a much better gaming experience combining elements of darkness and fear with exploration, beauty and brotherhood. Part two enables the player to switch between spells very quickly, hot keying spells quickly using the Y B X and A buttons, at points Harry can even apperate. Just to tie this review up… Part two is a much better gaming experience, although the challenge isn’t present, I didn’t die once on easy difficulty, perhaps that is how it is supposed to be. I’ll try expert for the challenge because there is very little here to criticise.
