    This new Harry Potter game isn't terrible, (like the others) but it's just below average. Graphics range from very good to quite ugly, and the story is just non-existent. The different characters seem fun at first, but then you realise they all function the SAME! However, the gameplay is good, with a fun shooting mechanic, but having to do basically the same game OVER and OVER again!

    tbh i didnt like this one as much as the others but i still thought that this was an alright game i missed wondering around the castle and all the side missions that gave you something to do if you got bored of the storyline

    WHY 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.

    Horrible game, yeah you can switch characters but there is no f* difference. It's a Call of Potter: Duty Hallows. Too short, Kinect and side missions were dropped. Don't waste your gaming dollar in this.

    In the game you can play for Most of the characters and it is worth noting. The authors have removed the side jobs that were getting in the last part. In general, this is a cool game with a gripping storyline.

    A nice little game. It may be short, but really captures the feeling of the film. Spell-casting feels fluid and exciting. Yes, it may be a far cry from earlier Harry Potter games, but then, the books and films at this point are much darker. Finally, we get to play as other characters from the fiction, and it really adds something special. No longer can you spam one spell and get away withA nice little game.

Finally, we get to play as other characters from the fiction, and it really adds something special. No longer can you spam one spell and get away with it. Having to switch spells whilst others 'recharge' makes you feel a sense of danger, and a sense of how scared Harry must be. All in all, I'd have preferred a longer game, but with the possibility of replaying sections of the game to earn more points and some beautiful world art EA have created something pretty close to the movie and fun to play.

    Like almost all previous HP games, this one is barely playable. 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 DeathlyLike almost all previous HP games, this one is barely playable.

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. Collapse

    Rather than end with a big bang, this videogame series goes out like a damp squib. [Oct 2011, p.92]

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