Hogwarts Legacy Review


Пікірлер • 5 403

    IGN  Ай бұрын +9989

    The elephant in the room with Hogwarts Legacy is Harry Potter’s creator, J.K. Rowling, whose comments about transgender people in recent years have left a sour taste in the mouths of many current and former Potter fans, both at IGN and in the world at large. This has driven some to call for a boycott of the Wizarding World altogether - including Hogwarts Legacy, though Rowling was not directly involved and there are good reasons (both in-game and out) to believe the developers at Avalanche don’t necessarily share her views. Regardless, IGN has always and will continue to champion human rights causes and support people speaking with their wallets in whatever manner they choose.
    As critics, our job is to answer the question of whether or not we find Hogwarts Legacy to be fun to play and why; whether it’s ethical to play is a separate but still very important question. So just as in virtually all cases, we’re choosing to expose and address the views of the franchise creator separately from our consideration of the work of the hundreds of game developers and evaluate Hogwarts Legacy as it stands, leaving behind-the-scenes context to be considered in addition to that evaluation, rather than in place of it, so that it can be weighted according to your own values.

      Why are you even mentioning J.K. Rowling? who asked? Also, it's her personal opinion and Harry Potter it's her creation and no one else's.

    Several hours in and so far finding it a wonderful game that truly delivers on the promise of the concept. Filled with affectionate detail and polished like a gem. It also should not be discounted how much better the game probably is because it's a single player experience without all of the baggage and technical challenge of it being an MMO-style game. A very wise design choice that obviously raised the ceiling for quality + experience.

    This is one of those cases where you can see it's more of a labor of love than anything else. The attention to detail, the amount of things that we're lacking from previous experiences, the original storyline that completely fits to the universe, the gameplay mechanics that visibly takes advantage of the potential within the world. This is a game that was clearly made by Harry Potter fans who knew exactly what was lacking elsewhere

    About 17 hours in and I'm having a lot of fun. I've been a harry potter fan since the first movie came out. It really captures the Harry Potter and Hogwarts vibe. The crazy spell combos you can cast if you're fast at switching spell sets is insane. 9.5/10 for me. If it had Quiditch, it'd be a 10/10

      Exactly. THis is the way a lot of franchises should be going forward.
      Not by making overly bloated stories that often end up distorting the origional legacy. But just making new stories set in the same world.
      Not only does this make the story less burdened outside of just conforming to basic world building, but if it flops ... it's easier to just pretend it never happened. No established character or event was ruined. Just let the failure fade away

      It's the best approach. Fantastic beasts have shown the franchise gets easily bloated once it gets too large

      What do you mean?
      Aside from just showing a 9 at the end for some reason, the review said it has a lot of boring exposition, a bland main story, embarrassing enemy variety, bad inventory management, and that it suffers from every technical bug you can think of.
      What about that makes it sound great?
