Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 :: DS Game Review

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 :: DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 22, 2010
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Fight enemies, cast spells and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 for DS. Read the review here.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 for DS follows in the same spirit and tone as the new Harry Potter movie. Basically, there is lots of magic, tons of action and a much darker storyline than in the past.


Fight Enemies, Cast Spells

Players are placed in a third-person shooter game that follows Harry, Ron and Hermione as they step up to their latest task: destroying Voldemort’s Horcruxes. In order to successfully complete a challenge and advance in the game, players need to either fight enemies or sneak past them. There is a collection of basic moves players need to master in order to accomplish this.

Throughout the game Harry will need to cast spells (ie. Protego, which protects the player from an attack), make potions (ie. Wiggenweld Potion, which restores the player’s health) and collect magical items in order to survive. Creating potions can be time consuming but fun. The game leads the player through the process, but the player must be quick as the potion-making process is timed. If you don’t complete it in time you need to go back and try again.


Puzzled?

While the game is certainly more grown up than past versions, the shooting and potion making quickly gets repetitive. While the first 20 minutes of gameplay are great, the rest is just more of the same. There is a noticeable lack of puzzles and mini games, which are usually used as brief interludes between long combat scenes. If you’re a Harry Potter fan the game is worth checking out, but it doesn’t hold much appeal for anyone else.

If one were to journey across the stars , far beyond anything imaginable to a human, then you would find the great race of Unicorns . They are not the cutesy, pink-maned ponies for little girls, no, they are the most powerful beings in this world. It is said they can hold a thousand stars in their bellies, that their eyes are darker than the anomalies which devour light, and that they can destroy a solar system with a blast from their jagged horns. They are truly to be feared. A magician from with ill intentions towards his own kind began to research a certain kind of forbidden magic that sprung from the most primordial part of the human brain... he had to sacrifice thousands of humans subjects to destructive testing before finally understanding and being able to harness the strength this magic held. He named it... memes. Using the power of memes, the magician constructed a bridge across space which he named the Bifrost, after the Rainbow Bridge of Norse mythology, and used it to travel to the realm of the Unicorns. He revealed the secret of memes to the Unicorn King, and made a deal with this insane ruler.  Now, with an army of Unicorns at his beck and call, the magician returns to destroy the planet he once called home, and it will take everything Earth has to stop him. (Replace 'memes' with anything else, and it almost sounds cool.) Wolves Insane Eternity Tree
