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!
Update: The video is back.

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 The 360 was great though.. but I even if Spencer is comparing XB1's performance to the 360's... that seems like yuge spin when you compare it to the PS4. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Some of those games are not Xbox exclusives. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MikeManiac61: Hold on, no memorable games? Halo 3, Reach and 4?,Gears 1-3? Forza Motorsport and Horizon? Lost odyssey? Condemned? Crackdown? Alan Wake? Come on now :) (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the first game reminds me a lot of the souls series. doing dungeons/bosses in different orders, cryptic messages and hard to find areas. (3 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: That's true. I can't remember any memorable IP's from the 360 days lol. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (4 Hours ago)
