    The quickly changing gameplay, short length, and active tiring controls seem to be built for someone with a lot of energy and a short attention span. It's probably great for a younger child who is really into the series, but any older fan who is looking for a deep and involved Harry Potter gameplay experience should probably look elsewhere.

    At the end of the day, Harry Potter Kinect provides a fun but short main campaign that is great in small bursts.

    Overall I found that the game has some Kinect related issues that can take away from the fun, but many fans will forgive the shortcomings these present, whereas casual fans will not. With this in mind, the game is really for those who love everything about Harry Potter and the final score reflects that.

    Looks like Potter has lost its magic. [Jan 2013, p.97]

    Kinect-powered arcade is intended to entertain you only in the case that you are six years old and/or you have a naked Hermione poster in your room. [Dec 2012]

    It's a shame Harry Potter for Kinect doesn't quite pay proper homage to the series: the game has plenty of moments that would've been enjoyable if they weren't fettered by uneven difficulty and broken combat. As a game not matched up with a movie release, it should've been held back until it felt more magical.

    Harry Potter for Kinect is really cool, but that's good.

    The game is not what I expected the gameplay is repetitive, but cool. The graphic is bad, control is good The game is fun, the world of Harry Potter is immense and creative and it seems that they can not see it when they were creating the game, it is very short.

    The game is cool for when boredom falls or when rain hits, it'll amuse for a few hours If you're a Potterhead is immensely cool, I achie fun because I'm a big fan of Harry Potter, but if not do not recommend buying
