    [​IMG]DSOG reviewed Hogwarts Legacy:


    Hogwarts Legacy PC Review

    I'll be honest here, I've never had much of an interest in the Harry Potter series. I didn't read the books, and in fact, I hadn't watched most of the movies until recently (and that was to specifically prepare for the launch of the game, so I can write a more extensive review).

    I also had a healthy dose of skepticism, especially given Avalanche Software's previous record. This team has never done anything even close to this scale, so I was a bit cautious about this game.

    So, after finishing the campaign, along with a large number of side activities that took me around 65 hours in total, here are my thoughts.



    If one were to remove the Harry Potter-themed coat of paint, Hogwarts Legacy would be a pretty standard open-world game that doesn't venture to try anything particularly new. However, while the individual parts of Hogwarts Legacy don't stand out as deep or particularly groundbreaking, this is one of those cases where I actually found the sum of its parts to be far more enjoyable than I would ever have expected it to be. The game also supports mods, of which there are already plenty which is a great start.

    If I do have another criticism, it's that it's not very repayable. What I mean by that is a second playthrough would not be all that different if that is something you are expecting. There are little to no changes based on the choices you make overall, and even trying new builds wouldn't offer a significantly different experience. That said, I'll likely revisit it several months from now, unless there is some new content before that.

    If you are looking for a relaxing and enjoyable open-world game to sink your teeth into, Hogwarts Legacy will likely scratch that itch. Coming from a non-Harry Potter fan, I think it's actually a competent and well-made game, has a decent amount of content, and is definitely worth playing if you haven't already. Avalanche Software has surprised me, and I'm excited to see what they do next.
