I dont know about you guys But this game was a childhood dream for me. I grew up watching those movies reading those books and playing those games. First few games was okay/great but later games were actual Garbage. Potterhead fans like me, we never actually get a chance to roam those castle’s like we wanted. you know i always wondered when i was kid, how it would actually feel to walk in those castle’s, sorted in a house in a RPG Game. And when i saw the first gameplay trailer i was convinced. Since now the reviews are coming in i am actually so much happy that at least its not going to be a garbage game. i actually went through all the reviews out there. and i think i can some up the pros and cons for you guys.
I actually went through all these reviews. And this is what i think about the game (without playing it :3)
For every Potterhead out there this game will actually fulfill our expectations. its basically a childhood dream came true situation here and there will be many biased fans too which is also justified xD
I think side quest’s are gonna be extremely repetitive.
Just like any other modern games this game will have stability issue. it already has huge stutters on PS5
I think Story is nothing too fancy. Just a generic story to defeat evil.
But i think there will be enough content, puzzles to solve, Many many companions to do side activities and reveal their stories and roam around in Hogwarts, Hogsmeade & nearby villages. So its gonna be a pretty big for sure.
We never get to fight with wands properly in a third person view, for us gamers its a totally new thing but what I checked so far i think combat is going to be good and polished enough and lets just hope its not repetitive.
All I’m gonna say is that I care waaaaaay more about Atomic Heart launch than the Hogwarts one. To me Hogwarts Legacy is no different than any other open world RPG game out there and the reviews show that.
That doesn’t mean I’m not gonna play it though. I’ll just wait until it’s on a fat sale. There are way too many open world games and it’s getting repetitive to play the same thing over and over.
By the way, is it just me or can no one run this game in true Fullscreen? It only gives me windowed and windowed Fullscreen options, which means no HDR, etc. I didn’t notice when I was on my steam deck but on my PC I was looking at the settings and realized it.
