Summary

Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover fantastic beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents, and become the wizard you want to be. Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.

[Aside from the Hype biased reviews and Harry Poter fans, yes, Hogwarts legacy is an exquisite adaptation but also a Failed RPG Open-world game.]
(7.5/10)


▪︎Hype gradually fades after the first hours to the game, especially when it starts introducing the open world elements outside of Hogwarts school. (-)

▪︎Regardless of the enormous amount of details in Hogwarts School, this phenomenal attention to detail is sadly limited to the indoor environment of Hogwarts school.(+) (-)

▪︎The outdoor environment is a massive dispersive, soulless landscape. With few areas that are lively. (-)

▪︎NPC movesets or Ai intelligence in general is of extreme basic level of development. That adds up to the soullessness in its open-world. (-)

▪︎Story content from writing quality to lore, is too average with seemingly minimal efforts exerted in trying to come up with a good plot. (-)

▪︎The mediocre writing quality overly focused on the protagonist, making it a superior figure. And that did cost the narrative being negelctive of side-characters and poorly presenting them. (-)

▪︎Game direction and concept execution were probably the only positive sides that can overweight the negatives. It has well captured Harry poter and wizardry atmospheres. (+)

▪︎Gameplay gets tedious overtime feels like as if it doesn't grow on you even with upgrades! (-)

▪︎Combat system has almost nothing to offer for both lacking in variety and also the bad AI intelligence for enemies. (-)

▪︎Quests are too repetitive with random encounters of enemies.
Without further notice or hints, you'll suddenly find yourself in a boss fight! (-)

▪︎Dialogues are boring and mostly are pointless lore for the average player. (-)

▪︎Some exploration elements and puzzles were fun to navigate and solve. (+)

▪︎World architecture is remarkably beautiful. (+)


Overall..
Hogwarts Legacy, while it did well to Harry Poter fans, it failed to properly present it in an Open-world direction, with poor investment in RPG elements. Might would've been better experienced in a Semi-open linear world.

(+) Positive
(-) Negative

I really don't care about the trans discourse but one thing about this game has to be said... This might be the most overrated game of all time. Most mechanics in this game are mediocre at best, the performance on PC is weeks after release dogshit and the game just does not even look good. If you are willing to give this game a 10/10 rating, you are most likely extremely retarded.

A great looking game, but with not much going on beneath the surface and repetitive gameplay.

The voice acting is terrible, why are you allowed to just wander around at night, why are you allowed to break into people's houses and why does no one acknowledge you when you walk past them on a path.

I'd have personally preferred a more linear experience, but with more classic HP sites to explore for this era. Outside of Hogwarts and Hogsmeade the landscape is pretty boring.

The story and side quests seem stretched out. But there is some ambition at least and not just a simple cash in

A dream come true for any Harry Potter fan. This game is the Batman Arkham game of the HP series in the sense that it is an open world game that is extremely close to the source material and is full of details everywhere that the fans will appreciate. This game is truly made by fans of the franchise.

The gameplay is a mix of exploration, puzzle solving and combat, all done impressively well. The visuals are stunning and I'll be shocked to see how they're gonna run this on last gen consoles, especially the switch.

The story is serviceable but nothing to write home about. However the characters and dialogue are great.

This is game is almost a 10/10 however it's brought down by a point due to some obvious missing features such as Quidditch and Wizard Chess, a lack of enemy variety and some performance issues here and there. Regardless of this, I've spent 55 hours to platinum this game and I enjoyed it all the way through. Hoping for a NG+ update or expansion sometime soon.
