The First 10 Minutes: <br>Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows 1

After the excellent Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, another EA game is getting the Gamersyde video treatment. Unfortunately for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, it is far from being a good title, as proven by these two exclusive videos showing the beginning of the game. Graphics wise, this new adventure is barely average, which would probably be ok if the playability was not so awkward on top of it. In the end, it is really difficult to find any incentive to keep playing, even for fans. The only positive thing would have to be the voice work, thanks to the original cast but it is not much, even when you are addicted to J.K. Rowling's work. Therefore, we strongly recommend you go see the movie instead of spending your money on what is another poor blockbuster adaptation.

Is the aiming really that bad and laggy... seeing those vids its now more a rail shooter then a exploration adventure, let me guess we should blame Kinect for that as it is a kinect game

Nope blame the devs, I was using the standard controller and aiming is a pain in the ass.

The kinect parts are just challange packs and nothing to do with the main game.

    GriftGFX That doesn't make sense. Wouldn't a bottom dweller have all the time in the world to watch movies? Don't you? (10 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus as confirmed from a native of one of the two supposed languages, if it weren't for one being referenced and put aside. but i guess a bottom dweller wouldn't have the time to see foreign movies. (11 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: I'm not sure that "better than Geralt's VA" is much of an achievement, lol. (13 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX As confirmed by a verified weebo. (30 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus as stupid as the language "white washing" is in Silence, the Japanese take is very much authentic. (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I just really recommend the books, because they're really bloody great. Also, I recommend people listen to the audiobboks, the voice actor is really great. Some even say he's better than Geralt's VA. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts also angry that he missed out on so much money. And of course, the lack of ownership and direction of the characters' and story's path. Which I'm sure no author likes loosing control over something. (2 Hours ago)
