    The shooting mechanics and levels are getting better but the encounters themselves are too repetitive. I hope someone takes the basic idea and does something more with it. The absence of basic storytelling and scene transitions make it hard to enjoy on its own.

    A mere add-on to the previous game, short and without any improvements to the first game, even losing features like Kinect support.

    The game still falls far short of modern shooters, and the boss battles often fail to add new gameplay tactics to the mix. But when the game rises to the occasion - like during the battle against giants, and in a sniping section set on a bridge - it's a fine conclusion to the franchise.

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

    EA's Harry Potter series unceremoniously bows out in this final game. While the previous games were also disappointments, this one sinks even lower to full-on cash-in status. What you're left with is a confused mess parading around as a barely-competent third-person shooter.

    Harry Potter's latest adventure is basically a nice try to fix everything that didn't worked at Deadly Hallow's first chapter. The shooting scheme is nothing more than a waste of the original atmosphere, but nevertheless, it's still a worth-try-for-rental game if you're looking for something connected to the movies.

    The short development cycle still hurt the end product. Shooting can be fun, but it gets old when you realize that the game doesn't offer interesting level designs.

    Gamers will be bored by the mechanics and fans of the lore will be disappointed by the ham-fisted depiction of the series' climax. While saying goodbye to Harry in the final book was bittersweet, I felt nothing but joy as my time with this tedious exercise finished.

    It's all just very basic and uninspiring. [Issue#75, p.78]

Fans of the movies (or worse, books) will be terrified by the unimaginative execution. Lifeless characters go through the motions but the game is lost somewhere between "shoot stuff with magic" and "connect the dots, follow the movie". All muggles will struggle to understand if there's actually more to the story of the Deathly Hallows than the simple arcadey sequences set up for this game. There is but not here. Watch the movie again, read the book, avoid this game. Full Review »

    WHY THE HECK ARE PEOPLE GIVEING THIS GAME A 10? This terrible. Its rubbish, the gameplay is slightly better then the first game but guessWHY THE HECK ARE PEOPLE GIVEING THIS GAME A 10? This terrible. Its rubbish, the gameplay is slightly better then the first game but guess what. I rented this game and finished it in just under 4 hrs. ARE U KIDDIN ME!? The stupid dim-witted developers abominated the book and movie with Call of Duty, Gears of War style shooting game. The only positive thing I can say about this game is it follows with the movie other than that, this is just a cheap, rushed, knock off.â Full Review »
