Excerpt: I am going to be perfectly honest; I am not what you would consider a huge fan of the Harry Potter franchise, but my 8-year-old son is. I enjoyed the first movie, but for some reason I totally lost interest.
Conclusion: Harry Potter for Kinect slaagt waar zijn Better With Kinect -voorgangers faalden: het is een bewegings-gevoelige game geworden waar effectief plezier uit te puren valt. De toverduels vallen nog steeds in het water door een slordige besturing , maar op andere vlakken is een erg grote verbetering...
