Let’s be real most articles coming out say that the main story is roughly 20 hours and most regular players are about 30-35 hours.
I am 45 hours in as of my last save and just now about to finish the main story. I have my list of things to still do. Such as finding all Shiney Magical Beasts, finishing landing platforms and my field guide as a whole.
I’ll admit I find the start of the game the most exciting. Getting your house sorted, finding your wand and the dueling club just a total blast.
It is nice that the game as you continue your story opens up for more freedom and what you can do with your free time between quests and classes but at times I struggle wanting to do the platforms, or the ancient wells of power. I would rather find another class to do as a side quest, not just left to find something to do on my own
It’s an odd complaint for sure. I think it is just that too much of an open world can, for me as a gamer, be super overwhelming.
Hey Dear Readers,
I thought I posted earlier in 2023 but nope. So my bad.
Hogwarts Legacy has been out for a little over a week and it is amazing. Yes there are bugs, no it is not perfect but this wild leap away from anything having to do with the boy who lived and allowing us to create our own witch or wizard is amazing and a long time coming.
The battle system is fun and fluid. I truly feel as if I am in a duel with a dark wizard as spells fly. When you fight the animal enemies, mainly spiders it is still fun but not the same.
The field guide we get is a great way to chronicle our progress in the game and easy to use. However it is not perfect. Such as upon completing a challenge we have to go in and collect the reward. If the game can tell us we completed something it can also give us the reward at the same time.
Though I love the game for me when it comes to the story there are to many unknowns about the character we make that I still have questions on and I feel the developers missed an opportunity in fleshing out our story and background more.
Example. We are a 5th year student coming to Hogwarts. Where has our character been the 4 years prior that they have not attended Hogwarts.
When it comes to our background, who are we? Are we pureblood, half blood, do we have muggle parents. These are all things I want to know or feel should have been involved in the process of making the character.
All of that being said this game for so many Potter fans is a dream come true and my hope is that they continue to run with this moving forward.
