KINECTaku review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I (Xbox 360 / Kinect)

Quoting KINECTaku's Damien McFerran:

"Deathly Hallows: Part 1 continues the tradition of poor Potter video games. There are very small moments of brilliance during the third-person shooter sections, but even these feel stale when placed next to the likes of Uncharted 2 or Gears of War. In fact, much of their appeal comes from the fact that they feel so out of place in Harry’s wizarding world. The Kinect element of the game – which is essentially what EA is using to push the title on Xbox 360 – is hilariously busted and wastes whatever potential there was for a controller-free spell casting mode. With just one more movie left in the pipeline, time is running out for EA to prove that it has what it takes to do the Potter license justice, but after experiencing this disappointingly average title, our hopes couldn’t be any lower. Stick with the light-hearted Lego instalments, as they’re likely to be your best hope of a truly decent Potter game." (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Kinect, Xbox 360) 4/10

Tried the game. Not sure it will be something that I will buy, but I'm sure a couple of members in my family who love Harry Potter will like it.
