Review: Hogwarts Legacy is coming at the right time
After all these years with Hogwarts Legacy, it looks like it's time to finally feel like a true wizard at Hogwarts.
Since 2011, we have been able to watch the last Harry Potter movie with Harry Potter and his friends at the cinema. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows completed the wizard’s story, and since then, fans have had to look at other types of content from this universe. Although it’s really been a while, it doesn’t seem like its popularity has really waned.
Amusement parks, supplement books, movies, and other forms of entertainment have all benefited from this franchise, of course, and will continue to do so for a while, or so it seems. The Fantastic Beasts series will receive a new chapter, called Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets, around April 8 this year, allowing Harry Potter fans to now enjoy the vast universe more.
There used to be Harry Potter as a game on PlayStation 1 and 2, for example, do we still remember Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone? You have seen the locations in Hogwarts in each level and you can fight against creatures, solve puzzles and fight against all kinds of monsters with your magic wand. But graphically today it can be called a minor disaster. The follow-ups didn’t make it any better either.
The Harry Potter license has often found its way into play through LEGO. A number of games have been released from it, but as a Potter lover, yearning for a true wizarding experience on console or PC. You will be given the option to join Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slitherin or Griffondor and complete your high school career. Of course, there is much more that we were able to see at State of Play last Thursday night.
Which brings us to this week’s announcement: Hogwarts Legacy comes at the right time. A new movie is on its way in the universe, fans are constantly craving more Potter content, and the game has a good standard of graphics in games. The footage we saw was very good (let’s not take the performance into account) and the atmosphere speaks volumes.
It definitely took a while for us to really have fun with Flipendo, but we say it’s better late than never. Also, you wouldn’t want to see a game like this on the PlayStation 2, for example, let alone technically possible at this scale. Therefore, the game will come out in a much better period. What are you thinking? Did it take too long or are we really ready to duel and send someone to the afterlife with the words ‘Avada Kedavra’?
Let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to Hogwarts Legacy, but you can also tell us if you have some business with this franchise.
