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

    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (12 Hours ago)
