    It's cool to see how the character models and graphics have changed through the years, and makes the entire series feel less like a movie game cash-in, and more like a separate journey for Harry that went alongside the films and books. It was touching in an odd way and a nice farewell to the game franchise. After all is said and done though, I'm still glad to see it end. It's still a way to sell a video game with Daniel Radcliffe on the cover, and unfortunately no touching montage is going to change that.

    It is a shame that the game is not as good as the movie it is based on. This is a simple and repetitive shooter that offers little incentive for those players who don't follow the adventures of the young wizard.

    Part II has new characters and new enchantments, but overall the game falls short of all expectations.

    The Harry Potter film tie-ins end on a low note with this short, tedious, and conceptually vapid cover shooter.

    Offers little variation and hardly requires strategic input, which leaves a mindless third-person shooter. The well-executed story and great looking characters make it a tad more interesting, but these elements can't hide the fact that the four-eyed magician often turns to his wands for simple and selfish needs.

    For fans of gaming, stay well clear. Even as far as movie-tie-ins go, this title is the biggest crime to the Harry Potter franchise since Emma Watson decided looking like a public schoolboy is sexy.

    What a sad ending for the Harry Potter videogame saga this part 2 is. Solely focused on action, in order to give meaning to the PS Move but failing in doing so, this PS3 title a simple port of the Wii version. Visually below average, too linear and too short, this adaptation of Harry's adventures will only have appeal in the eyes of the yonger and most Potter-addicted gamers.

    I REALLY don't understand all the criticism for this game. Maybe I'm just too much of a Harry Potter fan to look for any flaws in this game. Some people complain that it was too repetitive, but what they don't understand is that its a war game. Of course its going to be repetitive. Expand

    Fun but repetitive. Shoot, advance, shoot, advance.. It follows the story of the movie, but it's not nearly as god as the movie it is based on. If you want an enjoyable, cheap shooter you can get this. Expand

    It follows the story of the film. It may be repetitive and slightly inaccurate, but if you want a cheap 3rd person shooter gaming experience that is still fun, then this game is right for you. Expand

    The game is bad, gameplay is awful, and it's ridiculously short, not worth spending money on this game. Part 2 is not better than the first, but the game can be quite fun to play, but the gameplay is poor and the game is short. Expand

    While fun and it does follow (loosely) the story of the final book and film, The Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a flawed repetitive game, that somehow is still fun. I would give it a lower score, but I'm too big a Potter fan to do so. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I think this game is not wroth £40.00 because its to short and you do not play as much charter's. So if you are in to harry potter games then I suggest you watch the movie first and then wait at like new years or Christmas time and get because you will save a hell of a lot of money Expand
