Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt.2 is a strange game in many ways. For one, itís Gameloft and not EA Mobile behind this latest title, despite the latter having been the driving force behind all previous Potter games.
The transition to arch-rivals Gameloft hasnít lost any of the strong presentation the series is famed for on Java, but it has lost a little of its magic. The French publisher has had to opt for a far more action-based title this time around, thanks in no small part to the plot itself, which means pt.2 lacks the variety and clever pacing of the original game.
The plot is absolute gibberish to anyone who hasnít memorised the books, so itís only really something that fans will enjoy. Even then, the combatís reliance on backing away and auto-firing doesnít exactly thrill.
As a movie tie-in goes, itís well made. But only the most committed Potter fan will get much out of it.
