Excerpt: City management games are generally divided into two camps; Sim City and everything else. There are plenty of these games on the App store so what does Virtual City do to make it stand out? Firstly, its not quite a city management game. In Virtual City you are given control of your late Uncle’s transport company and it is up to you to grow it into the best transport company in the country.
Summary: The most disappointing thing about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is that it fails to capture the essence of the story it's trying to tell. While the revamped third-person shooter gameplay stays engaging throughout most of the campaign, the context that it's framed around is paper-thin.
Pros: Gameplay is fun for the most part
Cons: Fragmented, confusing story, Bad character models and voice acting, Occasional bad camera and bugs, Little attempt to capture spirit of source material
