It feels just like yesterday since most of us picked up and read through J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, not knowing when and how the series would end. But as all good things should come to their conclusion, so does Harry Potter's adventures,
which have become the part of modern folklore. Let's step into this mythical, magical world one last time to see how EA's video game matches up to the climax narrated in the books.
No surprises here, the final installment of the Harry Potter video game stays true to the narrative in the books - if you haven't read them, we're not going to spoil it for you. The storyline is linear, as straight as an arrow, with very little diversion from the the theatrical narrative of the movie with the same name - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Harry is out to find and destroy the horcruxes and ultimately defeat Voldemort and the Death Eaters he keeps encountering in his quest ably supported by his two best chums, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
other playable characters keep moving in and out depending on the track You can playas any of the three characters, but most of the action in the game revolves around Harry. At times, and I'm just nit-picking here, the central story does become a little too predictable - how I'd have loved some branches of creative liberties embedded in the game! But EA has played it safe here, trying to stay loyal to the book and script and try and win over the fans. I guess that's good, but it could've been a whole lot better, spectacular even but no such joy.
