Raiden is a massive Harry potter fan, he loves playing the Harry potter Lego game. Warner brothers have brought out a fab game for the Kinect, I didn't realise the game was 12+. Raiden is only 5 and has found it pretty tough, he isn't that used to the Kinect really. So it's been a tough one to review. We have loved the effects and visuals on the game. The only bug bearing thing is you can't switch players, so it would of made it easier to help Raiden if you could just jump in and help then let him play again.
The all-new Harry Potter for Kinect video game exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 allows players to experience Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the wizarding world like never before! Through the innovative Kinect capability, each player can scan their face to create a wizard avatar in their likeness – and then play as their avatar in the game. Using controller-free and voice recognition technology available only on KINECT, players will attend Hogwarts, interact with professors, students and friends, call out spells to cast against opponents, brew potions, and even fly as they race on broomsticks to be the first to catch the Golden Snitch in a Quidditch match.
Based on all eight Harry Potter films, Harry Potter For Kinect allows players to join Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as they embark on an unforgettable journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and beyond. With Kinect's scanning technology, for the first time ever in a Harry Potter game, players will be able to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to journey through the adventures of the film.
Harry Potter For Kinect gives players the opportunity to experience some of the films' most memorable moments, both as the relevant characters or as their own avatars, including visiting Olivanders, choosing a house at Hogwarts, and confronting He Who Must Not Be Named in a climactic final battle. Players who master their lessons can also take on their opponents in competitive mini-games, or join forces with family and friends in co-op gameplay.
