Harry Potter trailer

Harry Potter trailer

Electronic Arts released this trailer of the game adapted from the movie adapted from the fifth Harry Potter's book. And I still can't believe how good this look. Best looking adaptation until now? Could be!

the charcter models look great, for the first next-gen Harry potter it looks amazing.

Agree. Colour looks a little washed out, but the models actually look like their counterparts.Well done.....EA! Hope it plays better than a kiddie collect the token style affair.

Actually I thought the enviorments looked better, the character models looked way to fake and undetailed.

The game looks really nice, I don't know how it looks anything like a PS2 game at all, but people on this board always seem to manage to complain about the graphics in some way.

But yeah, I still have my doubts on this game truthfully even though the polish and graphics look really worked
It has been my experience that pretty much all EA's movie adaptations have had great look to them but lack a real fun/intuitive gameplay. IE the Bond franchise, and I am sure there are others.
It seems like they spend all their time on these games just trying to mimic the movies as best they can.

I have a feeling there should maybe be a spoiler warning on this trailer? Maybe that is a bit extreme though

About the game

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (1 Hour ago)
