My sister and I have been playing this video game since it came out (she on PC and I on Xbox), and it has been INCREDIBLE to say the least. While playing you really do feel like you’re a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While you won’t see the likes of Harry Potter or Hermione Granger wandering the halls alongside you, you’ll meet all kinds of new characters that have their own lovable (and not so lovable) quirks. In addition to the storyline of the game, there’s tons of side quests to keep you busy. It’s really a fantastic game that’ll keep anyone entertained for many (MANY!) hours.
Promising review: “Enchanting, mesmerizing, captivating, bewitching, whimsical, fantastic. These are all magical words, and they’re some of the few words I’d use to describe Hogwarts Legacy, so make of that what you will, or read the rest of my thoughts on this incredible game. Hogwarts Legacy has been, to me at least, a magical journey in the full meaning of the word. It has taken me back to my childhood, where my obsession with Harry Potter was a bittersweet escape from reality. It is a hard thing to pull off to centralize this kind of fantasy, and it has been a thing millions of people always dreamed of for decades; it’s understandably hard for any game developer to satisfy the immense scope of the expectations for a game that promises more or less an adventure as a student in Hogwarts. I had always been highly skeptical of this game as a result, point of fact, when I saw the first gameplay showcases late last year, I wrote this game off. I was like, “Yep, this is trash.” Suffice to say that I have swallowed my words since then, and I have been proven thoroughly wrong and now count the game as one of my most treasured experiences in video games.” —sul
