Given how merciless modern pop culture is in its exploitation of childhood nostalgia, it’s remarkable there’s been no credible attempt at a big-budget Harry Potter video game before now. Hogwarts Legacy has so much to work with: it is the product of millions of childhood dreams. Donning the Sorting Hat and setting foot inside the Gryffindor common room, manipulating the world effortlessly with a wand and fighting dark wizards are all fantasies that it can easily fulfil.
I’m not one who, when hyped for a game will excuse negative to average reviews as bias but it’s clear that this review has a bias given the author.
Story seems kinda...mid-ish from streamers I've been watching. Not a HP fan but I'm quite interested in the exploration, visuals looks to be the best it has and gameplay seems fine.
Many games I have more interest in are also releasing soon so I'll have to wait and keep my eyes out for a sale. No way I can dive into this 30+ hr game atm. Good that it's getting mostly positive reviews so I'll be looking forward to it down the line.
What do you expect from a rag like the Guardian
