    This is Harry Potter and the Deadly Shallows. It's only six hours long, but just as boring and confusing as the book and just as bad as the console versions.

    You'd have to be a very indiscriminate person to willingly step into this… game.

    Unfortunately there are too many mundane missions and not enough variety throughout the game to make this an exciting shooter and the distinct lack of collectibles (something that the previous games prided themselves on) is also disappointing and makes exploring the bland levels pointless.

    Grievous and almost unplayable attempt to create an action shooter has ended in a disaster. Spit to the faces of Potter fans and all gamers which deserve just this: Avada Kedavra. [Issue#199]

    It's a shooter for people who don't shoot and have the initiative of a house elf. [Feb 2011, p.97]

It would always be difficult to adapt the first part of a book/movie such as Deathly Hallows. Therefore I think this is a good game, for what it tries to achieve, but could aspire to do better and more with the source material it had. Expand

Truly a spectacle and a treat to all Harry Potter gaming fans! This instalment in the EA series involves actual 1st person interaction whereas up until now all Harry did was run around Hogwarts, make potions and collect cards. If you have read the series you will be amazed as i was to see how accurate the story timeline of the game actually is. A lot of strategy and creativity literally come into play when defeating death eaters, snatchers and all the magical monsters of the woods. If you, like me can experience this game on a 27" full HD monitor with an ATI Radeon HD series GPU then you will know that you can finally compare this game to the highest ranking, graphics intensive games on the current market, which is a lot to say for EA since they never worried to much about the High Definition gaming environment. Overall, i give this game an 9/10, purely from a HP fans perspective but as a games tester with an objective approach i give it 6/10 for story, 8/10 for the environments, 9.5/10 for the realistic action packed sequences and a healthy 8/10 for the general dark atmosphere of the game in terms of movies, menus etc. Final Comment: Buy the game, do the fancy 3D thingy mabobby with the cover online with a webcam and murder a good nights sleep with this phenomenal addition to the HP arsenal because as of yet, it truly is the best game in its class.

    No entiendo como una empresa como EA junto con un potencial tan alto como la saga de Harry Potter pudieron hacer un juego simplemente tanNo entiendo como una empresa como EA junto con un potencial tan alto como la saga de Harry Potter pudieron hacer un juego simplemente tan pesimo... Fuera de LEGO Harry Potter y los clásicos de PS1, no han podido sacar un buen producto de algo con tanto potencial como HP...
    Pésimos controles, bugs, HUD molesto, gráficos mediocres y molestos, jugabilidad repetitiva, aburrida y tediosa... Y todo en general es simplemente incómodo, una experiencia totalmente tediosa
