Review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 for Xbox 360

Another movie tie-in game means another angry review. Why does this game do worse than Ron Weasley in Potions class? Read on to find out!

Sound: No matter how bad the actual game is, the orchestra and voice acting are great on their own. Sound: 8/10

Presentation: The graphics are very detailed although character models look stiff and awkward. On the bright side, the game performs well on the Xbox 360 with no lag throughout it’s entirety. Presentation: 8.5/10

Gameplay: As usual, this is where the quality of the game drops considerably. All the gameplay of this third-person shooter is summed up with four spells, three of which you rarely use. You run, hide behind cover, shoot some enemies and then repeat. There is literally no variety whatsoever. No puzzles, no RPG mechanics, no nothing other than run n’ shoot everything in sight. Even worse, this game doesn’t support Kinect. Gameplay: 2/10

Multiplayer: N/A

Length: This is literally the shortest game I’ve ever played, as the campaign times out at two and a half hours. I… I don’t even know what to say. That time repulses me to a new degree. Length: 1/10

Overall: This latest outing for Potter gets 4.8 horcruxes out of 10. Between uninteresting gameplay and a disgustingly short campaign, this game is for diehard Harry Potter fans only, and is only worth a rent even then.
