Harry Potter fans had a lot to be excited for in 2021 – namely, the upcoming release of Hogwarts Legacy. The action role-playing video game, set in the magical world of Hogwarts, had been one of the most talked about titles early in the year. Now six months after its launch, is the magic still alive?
The reviews for Hogwarts Legacy have been largely positive for both critics and fans. Players get to explore an open-world version of Hogwarts and build their own custom character from the ground up, discovering all of the secrets that the game has to offer. The game is visually stunning, with beautifully crafted environment and characters that stay true to the beloved books and films.
The game features an engaging story and plenty of side-quests to complete, although it’s far from perfect. Complaints of repetitive tasks and game-play elements have led to some frustration, as has the limited customization in character creation. Despite this, the game has remained popular since its release.
The real success of Hogwarts Legacy, however lies in the world it has created for players to explore. Expansive environments, filled with mystery and surprises, draw players further in and make them want more. Fans have been clamouring for the many potential expansion packs that could be included in subsequent updates, all of which would further immerse the player into the world of Harry Potter.
Six months after the launch of Hogwarts Legacy, it looks like the magic is still alive, even if the game does have its flaws. With plenty of room to grow and develop, Harry Potter fans can continue to look forward to experiencing a wonderful world of wizardry.
