Yea!

The one that can't be named.

I bet that kid with the scary still face is the new villain.

This looks surprisingly decent. I'm sure it won't work most of the time but still, could be worse.

I can't wait to see Vinny Caravella of Hufflepuff stupifying his way to Lord Voldemort.

Waaaait a second. That shot where you're fighting Draco in the defence against the dark arts classroom looks REALLY familiar. Is this just that other Harry Potter game they already quicklooked, just with Kinect support? And they're calling it a new game?

Or am I just crazy here?

So it models your face, but keeps it the same expression all the time. With Kinect tracking errors and the same facial expression at all times, I can't see this being terribly immersive for kids... or adults.

Edited by JamesJeux007

Wait... So it's exactly like the previous Harry Potter games... but with the Kinect ?

What could go wrong ?

Posted by boxoflawls

oh it's just like that time in the harry potter books, where harry's riding a broom and decks a dude.

Posted by fazzle

Also, I just noticed the girl in the screen grab is doing the people's eyebrow.

I love the part when they scan the kid's face into the game. His regular head is just replaced with a blurry mess.

We have a winner here

This isn't the Quick Look...why isn't this is the Quick Look!?

Posted by Ghostiet

Oh my fucking God, that face. THAT FUCKING FACE.

This QL is going to be amazing

Posted by 014

For its target audience, I think that commercial looks really good.

I cannot wait to see how Kinect handles Ryan's beard.

Posted by Vexxan

This Quick Look will have endless potential.

Have we moved on to Casual Vacancy jokes now?

Posted by roguehallow

All the magic of the Harry Potter universe... has been meticulously squeezed out and replaced with plastic, lifeless visages loosely based on the actors from the mediocre films. And it's a Kinect game. I'm sad now.

The soccer seems pointless haha! This game looks really dumb!

Posted by Krakn3Dfx

Real life response to kid running out onto the soccer field dressed like a Quidditch player:

"Dammit Joey, how many times do I have to tell you, leave that Harry Potter cosplay shit at home."

Posted by Blitz_Kill

Awesome! More perfectly polished, perfectly executed, HD graphics and tech brought to you by the Kinect? Am i right, guys???!!!

Posted by Abendlaender

Woa, did you see how the ad for the game flew off the bus? MAGIC!

Posted by DougCL

we must be done with "YOU CAN CAST MAGIC SPELLS WITH YOUR HANDS JUST LIKE A REAL ACTUAL WIZARD" games soon, right? this is like the 6th one on kinect and move.

Posted by Rawson

But I'm already a wizard, Harry Potter Kinect.

Posted by sprode

Well, Fable wasn't enough "waving your hands around like a mental patient pretending to be a wizard" gameplay. You've got to BE the game!

Posted by Sevenout

All British people sounds ridiculous all the time. Especially kids.

Also, this quick look is going to be AMAZING!

Posted by wsowen02

Why do the graphics look like a Wii game?

Posted by TehJedicake

I'm a hufflepuff!

Posted by VibratingDonkey

Quick Look's gonna be terrifying.

Posted by cavemantom

It's fascinating how the most profitable non-game intellectual properties are translated in to games with no conceptual consideration. I guess making shovelware for unconcerned parents or naive kids is more profitable than making a good game, or at least less risky.

Posted by Hogans_Hotdogs

OOOOOOH 'ARRY POTTAH!!!! Griffindorfs and muggles and pippas all round.

Posted by Rainbowkisses

These kids are far too British.

Posted by brokenpilot

@cavemantom: Wow, you seemed to have learned a lot more about this game in a minute and a half trailer than I did, unless you somehow already played this enough to develop such insight into the quality of it.

Posted by Dr_Acula

Please do a Quick Look of this, it will be comedy gold.

I don't know how to respond to this kindly, so get fucked. This looks like hot garbage.

My point was that licensed properties, particularly Harry Potter, could translate well in to a substantial video game. The LEGO adaptations are the only ones to take any steps in that direction, though.

It's probably pretty hard to see the decade-out-of-date graphics and obvious mishmash of hackneyed Kinect mini-games from up on your high horse, though.

Posted by Camsampbell

That looks so intuitive and fun. I would know because I am a coregamer after all.

This video looked great on my Nokia Lumia 920 by the way.

The crap peripheral who lived.

Posted by wisdumcube

The scanned-in face looks like ass.

Posted by NapTimeSleeper

This is beautiful.

why does Draco look like a baby nicolas cage

HARRY POTTER 4: KINECT

That's not even Harry Potter music...

Posted by MeatSim

I'm a wizard and Kinect looks fucked up.

They're probably recycling a lot of it. The Quidditch chunk was probably from the Xbox/PS2 Quidditch game. Same basic gameplay engine with different models or something, most likely.

Posted by CannibalFerox

Got suck?

Posted by vinsanityv22

Thank god. I thought, with the movie series ending, and the last LEGO Harry Potter done, Giantbomb would never get another Harry Potter to quick look. But after this, I demand more!

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Wait, so if I'm understanding this correctly... you replace Harry Potter? Like, does he never show up and the game acts like you're the important one? Because that's fucking terrifying.
