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
    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)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (12 Hours ago)
