Why Harry Potter Should Not Use the Torture Spell in the Deathly Hallows Video Game

Gamervision reports: "At E3 last month, I was able to spend some time playing EA’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. As I stated in my preview, I had some issues with the gameplay, but was also concerned about the use of the Cruciatus Curse as a standard attack. One of three Unforgivable Curses, the Cruciatus Curse, or Crucio, is used to torture people; if used long enough, it can make them lose consciousness, or even become permanently catatonic or insane. Like the other Unforgivable Curses, Crucio’s effects are devastating, and it is commonly used by Lord Voldemort and his followers, the evil Death Eaters. However, one person who does not commonly use Unforgivable Curses is Harry Potter, and including its use in Deathly Hallows is not only completely out of character, but goes against everything that Harry has always stood for."

Well, most game devs and major corporations are into some very occult practices that can`t help but leak through their work. Harry Potter is filled with very mature dark occultic symbolism through out the entire series. It`s done a great job portraying these concepts consiously and subconsiously to viewers. Beginning with Harry being marked with a lightning bolt above his eye and being recognized by that mark as special. Harry Potter has alot of references to Satanic practices, check into it.

Someone's a conspiracy theorist...

It`s not a conspiracy, Satanism exists, just like Christians exist. If what they believe is real I have no clue, but they do definitely believe in it. You see it everyday.

Harry Potter is nothing but a battle of good and evil... all evil has parts of hell in them anyone can take that view easily...

You need help... the story is about Choice and making the right choice growing up... even growing old...

The books are great everyone should read them and they will not turn you into one of the devils minions...

Sweet... that will shut her up....

Yea I agree. A lot of it, especially practices are easily shown within the Entertainment media. Music is the bigest of all. From visuals within music videos to interesting clothes like the one you've shown, to the very lyrics themselves. If you know what to look for and listen carefully, you will find what you are looking for.


You've your mind to the possibility of truth. Just because something is shown to you as it is does not mean it is exactly what you see. The best way for me to let you in on this possibility of w/e you want to call it, satanism in this case, is to show you what Im sure many should know by now. The subliminal messages of Disney. Just a vid i found quickly.
Also i cant find this other vid, but it showed how drawings of both the male and femal genitals can be changed into a chartoon character. The outcome of the images is amazing, no one would ever make it out fromt he drawing it self. It can be used to create the body or it can be a peice of clothing like a hat.

I never said it`ll turn you into the devils minions don`t be so insecure, and you should read it since it is a great series like you said. I said they are based of off concepts of these matters, which it heavily is. If you want to take it for face value go ahead but it doesn`t change anything of what I said. And you are correct it is a story about choice I`m glad you see that.

**Also just for reference, You could take the saying "the birds and the bees" at face value (learning about sex) but it doesn`t change the much deeper meaning it has that has probably never crossed your mind.

Man this article writer needs to get over himself - its not the first time that books are taken out of context in games/movies its just the way it is and adds to the gameplay.

There are no spoilers if you've read all the books.

I was under the impression there are no spells, just fast, medium strong attacks. Isn't this game a shooter now?

iheartdestr0y3086d ago

It isn't a spoiler. The article has some, but not until it says it does.

dominicm3086d ago

wtf ea, it looked good but COME ON.

dizzleK3086d ago

the only "unforgivable curses" here are ones made against sony. :p

WetN00dle693086d ago

lol, let all the death eaters die!!!!
By the way isnt this part of the series suppose to be darker than the others? Let him use the Unforgivable Curses all he wants! Its about time to be honest. This is not a Disney movie you want happy magic go and watch Cinderella or something.
