The story of Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction — the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.
Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort… alive.
Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale — the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
After the cutscene with you know who, we will be flying with Hagrid. Looks like everyone has drank the Polyjuice potion (Polyjuice potion allows people to transform into someone else).
You might have noticed that this Harry Potter is a bit different to all the other Harry Potters. This Harry Potter is more of a third person cover shooter! Firstly you will learn how to aim, and learn that locking on is a very important part of this section. Once you find a death eater, you can use your left trigger to lock on.
After shooting at the death eaters Harry Potter will have to take control of the motorbike as the death eaters have performed a sleeping spell on Hagrid, you don’t need to stress to much since the game will take over most of the control.
Once Hagrid wakes up you will once again face the death eaters!
You will then come to a cutscene with Voldemort where he wants to take out Harry Potter. Harry will need to lock on to Voldemort and perform the Stupefy spell to knock Voldemort out just like the death eaters.
It’s time to visit a wizard wedding.
After speaking to Xenophilius Lovegood, you will have to speak to Mr Weasley if you’re having trouble finding him cast your Four-points spell, this will guide you to the next objective.
Firstly we will enter a cutscene with Harry, Ron and Hermione (they are all off to a wedding).
In this first part of the level Harry will be roaming around talking to people. We will also be learning some combat moves in this level.
After the cutscene showing us where Xenophilius is located we will learn how to perform the Four-Point spell, this allows Harry’s wand to act like a compass giving you the direct route to your destination.
Xenophilius will then tell Harry Mr Weasly is looking for him, this will allow you to practise your Four-Point spell to locate him.
Remember, to lock onto your enemies you will need to use your left trigger button.
You can use the barrels for protection in the first battle pressing the square button will allow you to take shelter.
Once again in this battle we will need to attack the death eaters, Using your R2 button will let you cast the Stupefy spell.
Note: As you use your spells they will eventually become more powerful.
After moving out of the shelter you will learn how to use your protective spell, follow the on-screen instructions to learn how.
As you defeat your enemies (the death eaters) they will drop potions, make sure you pick these up!
Using your cloak you will have to investigate the streets of London, Ron has some idea’s about some suspicious looking muggles, so go and check them out.
In this mission you must try and stay undetected! As you can see in the video, using the invisibility cloak is an excellent advantage since it allows you to walk around while staying undetected.
You will notice an object in the right hand corner of your screen, when this turns completely red you will be visible to everyone. To recharge your coat you will need to hide, places like buildings are the best as you will not be detected by the passersby.
Once you reach the café you’ll come into contact with the death eaters!
Use the tables as cover.
Remember lock onto your enemies for a more accurate shot.
Investigate Grimauld place to find the next clue that will lead Harry and friends to the Gryfindor sword.
You will also have your first encounter with pixies in the kitchen, use the Doxycide potion to slow them down completely, so you can get rid of them quickly.
As you search Grimmaud Place you will come across some pixies, remember to use your Doxiside potion as it will be a great advantage whilst you are trying to take on those pesky pixies.
Your next mission is to locate Kreacher and find where the Horcrust is. You must head down to the basement of the house where Kreacher is located.
Once you have found Kreacher, he will tell you that he could not destroy the locket. He will tell you that Mundungus Fletcher actually look the locket. Harry will then give Kreacher the fake locket to help him track down the real locket.
After defeating the death eater — who is located up the stairs to the room on the left hand side in the cupboard — make your way back down to the basement where there is a crashing sound. Here you will find the Kreacher has returned with Dobby and they have captured Mundungus Fletcher. Mundungus Fletcher will then tell you Umbridge has the locket.
The abandoned substation is where 5 unfortunate muggle born witches and wizards are being held by the Death Eaters and Snatchers, use your cloak to sneak up on unsuspecting enemies.
At the start of this mission you will be given 3 encounters to defeat. You can do these encounters in any order (we have started at the top). They’re being held captured by the death eaters and snatchers.
Use your cloak to sneak up on the enemies to try and free your friends. When you’re sneaking up on the enemy to free your captured friends make sure to stay undercover and use your spells to take them on. You can hide behind the rocks and crates for shelter.
Remember to go and have a look around where you defeated the death eaters, as there will be potions to pick up.
Use your Four-Point spell to find where your next muggle friends are located.
This is a survival mission, make sure that the witches and wizards who are fighting by your side don’t get hurt, otherwise the level will end.
This is the second part of the three missions Harry has to complete.
In this level you must once again save the witches and wizards from the snatchers. This level is a bit harder than the last level, it does have a large battle later on in the level.
This level has a lot of rocks that stick out. So take advantage of them and use them for cover.
You will notice there are some Wizards and Witches helping out, you must also protect them as they can be snatched by the snatchers.
As you proceed further on in the level use the crates as cover whilst you defeat the snatchers. (Remember to watch out for potions the snatchers might leave behind once they have been defeated.)
