The Harry Potter saga wraps up with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2! How good is the finale? Read the game review right here on Kidzworld to find out!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 1 took the Harry Potter video game series in a different direction. Instead of adventuring and discovery, it focused on action and lots of it. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2 continues working the action genre. Check out Kidzworld's review of the game right here, right now!

Action Shooter: Part 2

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2 is more or less a third person cover shooter. You move through a level, take cover around corners or behind walls and pop out to cast your spells quickly at enemies before ducking back into cover. The game follows the movie plot, mostly through cutscenes. Throughout the game, you will get to play as several key characters, including Harry Potter, Neville Longbottom, and even Ron's mom, Molly Weasley.

As you progress through the game, you will learn lots of new spells. Each spell has a different function: some break Protego spells, some causes big explosions, while others have long range potential. You can also combine some spells to great effect, such as petrifying your enemies before making them explode and shatter. The button control for the spells is great and easy to use.

All Action, All the Time

No matter what character you are playing, you will almost always be in an action pack cover and shoot situation. This is not necessarily a good thing, as it gets repetitive and you will soon wish that the Death Eaters would stop appearing so that you can continue on with the game. There are a few neat sequences that are similar to the movie where you run towards the camera and cast spells at enemies behind you, but these get old fast as well.

Apparition is really cool and fun, but you will only get to use it at the very end, which is too bad as it is the easily the best feature in the game. Overall, the game is good for one play through if you are fan enough.
