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

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (47 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (48 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (50 minutes ago)
