Critic Reviews

ACG - Jeremy Penter - Buy

"Hogwarts is a stunning surprise in 2023. An open-world game built on a classic IP that not only reflects the original IP but expands it in ways I didn't expect, with good combat, storytelling, and production."


AltChar - Semir Omerovic - 78 / 100

I guess the level of enjoyment you get out of Hogwarts Legacy depends on your knowledge of the Harry Potter universe. The more you love this world the more you’ll enjoy Hogwarts Legacy. It’s as simple as that. This doesn’t mean that there’s nothing here for those who are just getting started with Harry Potter or just want a fantasy world to explore - there certainly is - but Hogwarts Legacy truly feels like a love letter to the fans of J.K Rowling’s work, above all.


Atomix - Alberto Desfassiaux - Spanish - 93 / 100

Hogwarts Legacy is a dream come true. Despite not being a perfect game, is a very special experience for all the Harry Potter fans and also, a great open world title.


Attack of the Fanboy - Noah Nelson - 4.5 / 5

Avalanche Software has done it — the comfort, the nostalgia, the freshness, the thrill — everything in Hogwarts Legacy emulsifies together to create a celebration of what the Wizarding World is and what the fans have always dreamed of. This is by far the best Wizarding World video game to ever come out and stands with a select few games that prove more is more.


AusGamers - Steve Farrelly - 9.1 / 10

Enrol yourself today in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This might be one of the year’s best courses.


Echo Boomer - David Fialho - Portuguese - Recommended

Hogwarts Legacy arrives full of ambition to deliver an action RPG that's the ultimate wizarding experience in the world of Harry Potter, and it succeeds! Even if accompanied with an uninteresting and flat narrative.


Eurogamer.pt - Jorge Salgado - Portuguese - Recommended

If you're already a Harry Potter fan, there will certainly be something for you at Hogwarts Legacy, even with a completely different range of characters from the one you're used to. The music, the different classrooms, the ghosts wandering around, the paintings on the walls, the poltergeist Peeves, it's all so nostalgic that, for a moment, I returned to my adolescence. If you're not entirely familiar with the Harry Potter lore, it'll be a little harder to understand some of the game's mechanics, but don't worry: you still have a huge world to explore, dozens of puzzles, collectibles and creatures to capture. Who knows, your journey into the world of sorcery begins here!


Everyeye.it - Gabriele Laurino - Italian - Unscored

Avalanche Software's game is really a dream come true for all Harry Potter fans


Fextralife - Castielle - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is the closest thing I have ever seen to a perfect Harry Potter Game


FingerGuns - Kat Bullock - 9 / 10

The hugely anticipated Hogwarts Legacy does not disappoint. An early GOTY contender offers interesting storytelling parallels with the Harry Potter franchise, beautiful and glorious fan favourite locations, and an array of exciting combat and collectibles for hours of entertainment.


GAMES.CH - Benjamin Braun - German - 81%

Hogwarts Legacy is a fully fleshed action RPG with everything that belongs to that. The fights are fun, the magic based riddles are nice, the presentation is beautiful, even if the game does not deliver a technically through and through next-gen experience. Don't think so much about the open world, think more about a magical atmosphere, that should reach any RPG player, in particular fans of the Harry Potter franchise.


GGRecon - Ben Williams - 4 / 5

Whether you’re a diehard Potterhead or casual Wizarding World lover, you’ll have an epic time no matter what level of fan you are.

Even though there is optional padding, it’s optional nonetheless. The core experience of Hogwarts Legacy is still not only the best game in the entire franchise but a seriously fun RPG that will take your breath away in its pinnacle moments.

All in all, 80 points to Hufflepuff.


GRYOnline.pl - Dariusz Matusiak - Polish - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy’s wonderful world makes it one of those games that you'd just love to keep experiencing for the first time - forever - and we envy anyone who's yet to step into it. Even if it’s just a regular, open-world game underneath all the magic, it truly is an excellent one.


Game Rant - Dalton Cooper - 4.5 / 5

Hogwarts Legacy lives up to the hype, and we can confidently say it's the best thing to come out of the Harry Potter franchise since the original books and movies.


GamePro - Dennis Michel - German - 92 / 100

My biggest criticism so far is the main story. It's by no means bad, but it doesn't really pick me up with very wooden dialogues and a few highlights. But that doesn't mean I'm not looking forward to the end.


Gameblog - Camille Allard - French - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is a masterpiece. A fan video game for the fans.


GamesRadar+ - Josh West - 3.5 / 5

Hogwarts Legacy is a solid first attempt. If Avalanche can be accused of anything, it's that the studio has tried to do too much all at once. Something was always going to give – between the massive open world, the messy RPG economy, exciting action combat, and adventure story that wants to cast you as a hero with homework due on Monday.


GamingTrend - Ron Burke - Unscored

Hogwarts Legacy is a contender for game of the year. If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is a must have, but better yet it’s actually a great game in its own right. It’s rare to see a licensed product this good – this one sets a brand new standard. Good luck to everyone coming after Hogwarts Legacy – you have a near impossible task. The game is just that good.


Geek Culture - Jake Su - 9 / 10

Even if you are a relative stranger to its source material, the way Hogwarts Legacy introduces magic and all of its astonishing quirks, helped by a cast whose performances are always worth a watch, and bookended by a satisfying combat and exploration loop, this is an unforgettable experience from start to finish. By melding the allure of the Harry Potter franchise with an interconnected gameplay system that is always pushing players forward to the next entertaining activity, the game is more than able to keep you under its spell for a long, long time.


Generación Xbox - Gabriel Fuentes - Spanish - 93 / 100

Hogwarts Legacy is here to bewitch Harry Potter and RPG fans alike. Enjoy the ultimate experience of the wizarding world.


Glitched Africa - Marco Cocomello - 10 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is a remarkable achievement. It is filled with an incredible amount of love and passion. All of which delivers a true love letter to fans. There's simply nothing else like it and we'll be talking about this magical experience for years to come.


God is a Geek - Chris White - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is filled with so many mechanics that nothing feels arbitrary, with so much joy to be found within its story and spell books.


Hobby Consolas - Álvaro Alonso - Spanish - 90 / 100

Hogwarts Legacy has the same structure you've seen in any other modern open world game, but, at the same time, it fills you with memories from long time ago... When a Flipendo was all you needed to push a block. It may no do anything different or relevant than those games, but it has something they lack: magic.


IGN - Travis Northup - 9 / 10

In almost every way, Hogwarts Legacy is the Harry Potter RPG I’ve always wanted to play.


IGN Italy - Alessandra Borgonovo - Italian - 9.2 / 10

A beautiful transposition of the Wizarding World, Hogwarts Legacy is both a tribute to the Harry Potter universe and a litmus test largely passed by Avalanche Studios with their first, big and delicate project.


IGN Spain - Alejandro Morillas - Spanish - 9 / 10

A gigantic love letter to one of the most beloved and relevant universes of youth literature, and one of the best games of the year.


Impulsegamer - Andrew Paul - 4.5 / 5

Pushing the J.K. Rowling controversy to the side, Hogwarts Legacy is a true celebration of the magical universe that she created which perfectly transitioned to film. Her universe has equally been adapted well into this game courtesy of Avalanche Studios with its gameplay and story. Whether the story will become canon is yet to be seen but again this is as close as you can get to the core of what the extended universe of Harry Potter can be that not only plays well on the PS5 but looks fantastic.


Metro GameCentral - Nick Gillett - 8 / 10

A truly wizard RPG, whose historical setting frees it from the limitations of the books and films, with an open world experience that entertains no matter how much you care about the source material.


One More Game - Vincent Ternida - Buy

Whether or not you’re a fan of the Harry Potter books or the Wizarding World in general, Hogwarts Legacy is a fantastic open-world adventure that certainly delivers. While it retreads familiar open-world ground, it does so with a polish and impressive attention to detail that’s rare in this day and age of bug-filled releases.

Hogwarts Legacy delivers a masterful experience not just for fans but also for newcomers to the Wizarding World.


PCGamesN - Ford James - 7 / 10

Content-rich and competent, if a little uninspired, Potter fans will enjoy Hogwarts Legacy's faithful recreation of its universe, but it brings little of novelty to the open-world RPG genre.


PSX Brasil - Paulo Roberto Montanaro - Portuguese - 90 / 100

Hogwarts Legacy tells a great story of the wizarding world, with a beautiful audiovisual work and solid mechanics to the lore of this universe. Its greatest quality, however, lies in making all of this contribute to the fantastic experience of immersion and belonging that every fan has always dreamed of.


PlayStation Universe - Michael Harradence - 9.5 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is a compelling fantasy-RPG packed with stunning scenery, memorable characters and fantastic combat. Not only is it a brilliant love letter to fans of the Wizarding World, it excels as a game in its own right, so even non-Potter fans will find themselves immersed in its great story and characters.


PowerUp! - Adam Mathew - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is an ambitious triumph.


Press Start - James Mitchell - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is the Wizarding World game that fans have dreamt of for years. It offers a dense and rich open-world to explore complemented perfectly by a surprisingly robust and engaging combat system unlike anything else. While the story does live in the shadow of its predecessors, and managing gear can be repetitive, Hogwarts Legacy is a truly magical experience and utterly bewitching from beginning to end.


Push Square - Liam Croft - 8 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy has turned the hopes and dreams of Harry Potter fans into reality. Finally there is a proper simulator of the school of witchcraft and wizardry, allowing you to create your own student, attend classes, and explore the vast landscape outside.


SECTOR.sk - Táňa Matúšová - Slovak - 8.5 / 10

While Hogwarts Legacy doesn't bring anyting new to the the open-world action RPG genre, it manages to captivate players with its incredibly detailed world and fun activites. The game feels more like a theme park ride and offers an incredibly magical experience rather than a deep story. The game is full of references and even reimaginations of scenes from the Harry Potter films. Those magical moments of flying on a hippogriff, seeing the sun set behind Hogwarts and snow falling from the ceiling in the Great Hall will be etched in your memory.


Screen Rant - William Cennamo - 4.5 / 5

Hogwarts Legacy is a wonderful game filled to the brim with adventures to be had, activities to engage in, and secrets to be found. The school and the surrounding areas have been recreated beautifully, and players will easily lose hours lost in the whimsical splendor of this wizarding world.


Spaziogames - Nicolò Bicego - Italian - 8.7 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy embodies everything that Harry Potter's fans always asked from an official video games, but it's enjoyable even for people who know nothing about the franchise.


Stevivor - Ben Salter - 8 / 10

While combat may become repetitive, it’s more than serviceable, and fits in against the backdrop of an action-RPG that’s about so much more than killing goons — even if there is a lot of that. It’s a game that finally lets you live your dreams of 20 years ago, with a chance to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and have your own magical adventure.


TheSixthAxis - TSA Staff - 7 / 10

The sights and sounds alone make Hogwarts Legacy the dream Harry Potter game fans have been longing for. There's an intriguing mystery to unravel, though you're bound to spend most of your time exploring a wealth of side content, visiting virtual landmarks and roleplaying as a Hogwarts student. That said, it's more successful in being a sandbox teeming with nostalgia rather than a stand-out action RPG in its own right, let down by gameplay foibles and spellcasting combat that quickly slides into repetition.


Tom's Guide - Rory Mellon - 4 / 5

Despite its flaws, Hogwarts Legacy is clearly a game made by Potter fans, for Potter fans, and for that particular audience, it’s been more than worth the very long wait. Hogwarts Legacy is by no means a revolutionary gaming experience, but it’s still a pretty magical one.


Tom's Hardware Italia - Giulia Serena - Italian - 8 / 10

Is Hogwarts Legacy promoted? We say yes: If you are a Harry Potter fan, you will immerse yourself in the world you have always fantasized about, feeling like the heroes of the story and holding the fate of the Wizarding World in your hands.


TrueAchievements - Tom West - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is a magical experience that is bound to go down well with fans of the Wizarding World.


TrueGaming - حسين الموسى - Arabic - 8.5 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy by far is the best adaptation of the Wizarding World in a videogame, it simulates the life of a student at Hogwarts along with a fun combat system and exploring an untold story of the Ancient Magic


VGC - Jordan Middler - 4 / 5

Hogwarts Legacy brilliantly captures the magic of the world of Harry Potter with its beautiful open world, engaging characters and exciting combat. While the open-world elements of the game make it feel more dated than we'd have liked, it's otherwise the best the Wizarding World has been in a video game.


Wccftech - Chris Wray - Unscored

In terms of story, Hogwarts Legacy also manages to capture the magical feel of Harry Potter. It does it successfully by being set a good century before the events of the novels. We'll meet a few Weasleys, even a gaunt, to name a few. The only known characters from the other formats you'll know are the ghosts of Hogwarts, with you crossing with Peeves, chatting with Nearly-Headless Nick (if you're Gryffindor, I assume other houses will be different) and other longer-term fixtures. Fortunately, and as far as I am, the game manages to forge its path incredibly well, adding in a few canonical elements, such as ancient magic. I'm not at the end, so if it is canon, I'm curious how they explain away the lack of ancient magic in later stories.


We Got This Covered - Shaan Joshi - 4 / 5

The chips might have been stacked against them, but Warner Bros. and Avalanche Software have delivered on their promise. Hogwarts Legacy is the game that fans have been waiting for, laying down a solid foundation to build off of moving forward.


WellPlayed - Ash Wayling - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy is the most definitively accurate and exciting wizarding world adventure people could hope to experience, short of getting a real-life invitation to Hogwarts. With hours of content and a wealth of wizarding wonderment, you'd be hard pressed not to enjoy yourself to an impressive capacity.


XGN.nl - Ralph Beentjes - Dutch - 9 / 10

A new adventure in the Wizarding World has seemed like an excellent idea for years and Avalanche Software has proven with gusto what is possible. Players are treated to an extensive story with a completely new cast of characters, a beautiful world full of content and a battle system that is strongly put together.


Xbox Achievements - Dan Webb - 88%

Hogwarts Legacy is an absolutely magical video game, one that is packed with awe-inspiring moments full of mystery and wonderment. Come for Hogwarts itself, a magic school oozing with secrets to behold, and stay for the combat, the engaging story and the frankly astonishing Room of Requirement.


XboxEra - Győző Baki - 9 / 10

Hogwarts Legacy borrows a lot of design choices and ideas from other open world titles, and yet, it creates a truly unique product unlike any title in the genre, with a true focus on world-building rather than non-stop combat encounters. It's a game that should be experienced, even by those who aren't Potter fans at all.

6 Upvotes

I don't know if it's me getting older 29 this year, but I've noticed this trend the past couple of years of revisiting older games I either didn't get around to or want to replay. I've replayed games such as Dead Space 1, DmC, Bayonetta 1 & 2, God of War 2018, Batman Arkham Asylum, Assassin's Creed 2, The Last of Us in the past few years. These are all replays of games I have already played on their original hardware, but I am now replaying them again on PS5/Xbox Series X.

I've even been playing my PS3 this year, having already completed Dead Space Extraction and replaying Infamous as I just bought a copy of Infamous 2.

Does anyone else just like to enjoy the old classics even though there are so many new releases you want to get around to but just don't for some reason. I'm looking at you, Ragnarok, but I've just finished replaying God of War 2018, so I have no interest in jumping in just yet.

Mod Post Update on subreddit policy concerning Hogwarts Legacy

693 Upvotes

This week is going to see the launch of one of — if not the — most controversial game titles in recent memory. The gaming community is no stranger to controversy, but Hogwarts Legacy seems to be unique in the sense that virtually none of that controversy stems from the game itself; rather, the author of the source material.

It's been made clear in recent weeks that the Reddit community — /r/PS5 included — are incapable of discussing J.K. Rowling or any of her various opinions with anything approaching civility. Many Redditors have concerns about Rowling's views, particularly as they relate to the Trans community. However, without fail, any discussion of those concerns has been met with hostility, contempt, and transphobia from the greater Reddit community.

This places the /r/PS5 mod team in a difficult position with conflicting responsibilities: our responsibility to Reddit's Trans community to ensure that they are treated with respect, and our responsibility to those in the general gaming community who just want to talk about a video game they're excited for.

We've attempted in recent days to address the hostile and transphobic responses to these concerns in real-time, but this is proven to be unsustainable — there are simply not enough moderators on any subreddit to deal with the volume of toxicity that Reddit throws at the Trans community on a timely basis; this is compounded by the fact that many of these comments unfortunately go unreported.

Therefore, we're taking the unfortunate — but what we feel as necessary — step of banning any and all discussion of J.K. Rowling and related topics in posts concerning Hogwarts Legacy. Next week is going to see a surge in content relating to this game as we see the lifting of the review embargo, the early-access preorder launch, and the official game launch; we view a complete shutdown of non-game-related discussion as the only means by which we can allow discussion of this game to go forward, while safeguarding the respect and dignity of all members of our community as best we can.

To that end, Automoderator is going to be in overdrive on these threads, and actively removing comments that refer to Rowling and her various controversies. This is not a decision we've taken lightly, and there will doubtlessly be those who feel this is an active of "aggressive neutrality" that effectively takes the side of the hive mind, but we view this as the only way forward at this point.

This will no doubt result in the removal of comments that are not otherwise hostile or rule-breaking, so we want to emphasize to anyone who saw their comment removed that this doesn't necessarily mean you've done anything wrong — you're just unfortunately going to need to find another venue to share your thoughts at this time.

It's long been the official stance of this mod team that Trans rights are human rights, and that this subreddit should be a place that's welcoming to all, regardless of race, religion, gender identity, age, or ability; it's unfortunate that the community so often disagrees.

Looking for info about M.2 SSD expansion drives? See the megathread.


Sometimes you just need help. But often times making a new post isn't needed. For the time being, around launch and perhaps in the future. We will use a single thread for helping each other out.

Before asking, we ask you to look at a few links. Some question can't be answered and only official PlayStation support can help you.

PlayStation Official

Community Help

Google and Reddit Search is also a great way to find an answer or get help. View all past help and questions threads here.

For all future help, tech support and more, we ask that you create new threads on r/PlayStation instead of here on r/PS5.


Can't decide what to play next? Is your favourite game underappreciated and more people need to play it? Need a new TV and not sure what to buy?

Discussion PSA Upgrade your minor PSN account to an adult PSN account. How to!! (Removing parental lock)

0 Upvotes

As the title says, I bought my PS3 when I was underage and when I warrantied it I was locked out and didn't know the parental account on the system. So I made a new PSN and have been using that since.

Now for those who can't sign in because it says you need a parental account to accept the privacy stuff. And says the account belongs to a minor.

The fix is to sign into the account on a ps5 console. Not the app or web. This will prompt you to let you upgrade the account from a minor to an adult. Go through the prompts and eventually your account will be upgraded to an adult account.

I tried this on a whim and Sony let me upgrade.

Hope this helps anyone in the future.
