  • Very fun, but could use some tweaks Aug 4, 2019

    By Tamillee
    I really enjoy playing this game...it’s fun, I enjoy the story line, picking a profession, and all that stuff. However, there are a few things that I think would make the game significantly better. 1) It’s been said by many already—spell energy. Can their be other ways to obtain this? Specifically for people in rural areas where inns and greenhouse and few and far between. Can we earn like 1 spell energy every 30 minutes or something? It would be awesome to be able to wake up with a full energy bank each day, and would also make me want to play the game more frequently because I know that I could. 2) Can Masterful casts actually mean something? It’s pretty stupid that a low level threat can resist a masterful cast. What’s the point in trying to get a masterful cast if all you get is XP? There is literally no other perk, as it doesn’t at all seem to affect your likelihood of capturing a foundable. I have defeated a high level threat on a “good” cast, but had a low level threat depart after a masterful cast? Seems stupid and pointless to have casting ability only count toward XP. 3) Storage. I know this has been said by others as well, but it’s annoying to constantly have to delete ingredients/potions...particularly if you’re trying to stock up for a Wizard battle. I realize this is to make people spend actual money buying coin to increase their storage, but it really makes me want to play the game less...not more.

  • Really 3.5, but there’s no half option Sep 1, 2019

    By Vixen497
    I agree that it’s a lot of fun for Harry Potter fans, and there are a lot of fun features. But in the American version, it’s hard to find inns unless they’re literally right there (within a mile) because you can’t zoom out on the map in game to find an inn nearby (I.e. within 5 mi) (and the online maps don’t work well either). I also don’t like that the game isn’t as intuitive as Pokémon Go—there’s a learning curve, and right now I’m not sure what I’m doing or how to work things. It would be nice if here was somewhere to go to review the storyline as well, because there’s a lot of moving pieces and it’s a little hard to follow. Also, the graphics are shoddy in some places (especially the people—Ginny was very slender in the movies, yet she looks overweight in the graphics, Luna is only recognizable because she’s he only one that wears that hat, Neville does not look all there, etc.). and the profile pictures will update on our personal app, but our friends can’t see it (my husband and I play together, and we will have to show each other our phones to show each other our profile pics). I realize it’s like this in Pokémon Go too, but I also don’t like that you would regularly have to travel to different countries to get everything (e.g. that awesome opal eye dragon in about a week). So you would have to be incredibly rich to get everything. BUT there’s a lot to do and explore, and I am mostly having fun with it.

    Liked it but yeah, recent upgrades not fun anymore. Gone crazy with tasks in different catagories. Wizarding in highest chambers to complete tasks are too frustrating. Adventure sync hasnt been working while app is opened. No personal assistance from support...just comment and wait and wait ...Too many between sds and combat training tasks..to complete in reasonable effort.

  • These are the real issues with the Game Aug 7, 2019

    By Need boxes
    I’ve been playing daily since it’s release. Almost all reviews complain about the amount of energy. That is only a temporary issue. As you get more coins you increase your vault and can store more energy. The real issues are 1) play is tedious. You must tap on every single foundable just to see if it something you need or not. Frustrating and slows down play. 2) greenhouses are next to useless. Very awkward timing for harvesting ingredients after you plant them. I’ve only successfully accomplished this once. And most ingredients you need you can find anyway. If you play a lot remembering where you planted and when they are ready for harvest gets confusing. 3) about 50% of foundables disappear when you cast. Makes is difficult to get what you need and makes all the tapping on foundables that much more tedious. Wastes energy and potions. 4) Collecting the foundables actually feels a little pointless. So you get all your stickers then what? You can’t use them for anything or even show them off to friends. Since no one that you friend is privy to anything you do in the game. Makes having friends in the game kind of pointless. On the good side, the graphics are great, the casting of spells is fun and I love how intricate the game is. Brewing potions is also fun. I like that you can pick your house, profession and design your wand. I will keep playing but there are improvements needed to keep me in the game long term.

  • Fun, but frustrating if you live outside the city Jul 10, 2019

    By Pope Nucci
    Overall, I like the concept of the game. But I have to agree with others who live in suburban or rural areas: it is extremely difficult to regain energy because the nearest greenhouses/inns are too far away to visit on a regular basis. There needs to be other ways to gain energy. Same goes for Spell Books that can only be gained through Wizarding Challenges- I can’t get them because I don’t live near Fortresses. And the greenhouse is basically useless for growing things I need, because they are all too far away to plant things and then revisit 15 hrs later. Also, potions. If a potion is good for say, 5 spell casts in one battle, but I win the battle in one spell cast, the remaining spell casts should carry over to future battles. Otherwise spending hours brewing a single potion is a waste of time and ingredients. It would also be nice to know (on screen) when entering a battle, whether or not I already have that complete item in Registry. It’s extremely difficult to remember each item, especially because some items are gained in fragments. For example if I need 12 fragments of Buckbeak but can’t remember if I completed him or not, I have to exit the battle and open my Registry to look up the information. I don’t always want to collect extras simply for experience points, because it wastes spell energy that I can’t replenish because the inns/greenhouses are too far away.

    Another 1 star for the updates. Used to be fun but is now just frustrating to play. The step tracking is my main issue with the game. I've waited weeks to see if they would fix it but it looks like they will not. Everyday I contemplate deleting the app but I keep hoping they will fix it. Time will tell.

I used to enjoy this game, but now it just makes me angry.

    Updated to 1 star: Good concepts, even more glitchy than before. Adventure Sync was great but it hasn't worked for months for Android - the developers "know" but are doing nothing to fix it. So I tried having the app open when I go for a run, to turn the key for Portkey Portmanteaus. The game can't even track how far I travel on foot while it's open. I probably ran a quarter mile with my screen and game on - the game told me I traveled 0.04 kilometres. Absolutely terrible programming.

  • Beware: Big Power Drain Jun 29, 2019

    By The Domestic
    As much as this game has potential, the biggest reason I uninstalled it is due to the massive amount of data and energy required to run it on any device. I currently have an iPhone 8 with 256GB and loads of unused storage (most of the gigs are free), and not only would my battery drain super fast, but my phone would heat up almost instantly as the processor too was working overtime to compensate. Even with the app entirely closed, the issues would continue even when my phone was sitting idle! Now, I have had Pokemon GO, FaceBook, Discord, and Safari all running and open at the same time and never once did my battery drain that fast nor did my phone run hotter than the interior of an active volcano. I checked my battery usage in Settings for the past 24 hours after deleting this game. A few minutes of running this game, as per my phone’s battery logs, used up 18% battery life in that time. Pokemon GO barely reach 1% for much longer. PoGO, even back in the day of the memory and data leaks when it was first introduced never hit the level this game has. Ever since deleting the app and rebooting my phone, the issues have disappeared and everything has gone back to normal. Again, this game has potential, and despite the glaring gameplay problems, the need for enormous energy to even run is absurd and disheartening to say the least. Maybe when Niantic sorts everything out will I make another at playing.

    Great game with nostalgic game play and canon references. I've been playing for well over a year and a half and have only paid roughly $20 to enjoy the entire game experience. Everything is free just get out there and explore. Great game.

  • Awesome but I would like a new feature May 5, 2020

    By piggy2.0
    On your ministry ID it would be cool if a profession was professional quidditch player. it would be really cool if you added that. This game is good right now because it gets players moving during quarantine. Also I would like to say that the energy And coins gets annoying. If you don’t have enough you have to buy some and no one wants to keep buying stuff for a game over and over. I read in the other reviews that others were having that issue to. Also In the vault you can delete items. I would like it to ask twice instead of once to delete an item because I accidentally deleted a very useful potion. In the chambers In Hogwarts it doesn’t let me switch back to AR so can u make that easier please. Since we are in quarantine I would like it if more objects came closer to me because we can’t leave the house as much as before. Also I live in a small community and I have to ride my bike half a mile to town hall to visit an inn and find traces. Also you have to spend money to fill energy. Other than that whole paragraph this game is great. You should try adding a hogsmeade. Thank You for taking your time to read my Review and I hope you take my suggestions into consideration. -Addicted Player

  • Great Game But... Jun 27, 2019

    By jackinthebox1234
    This is a great game and it has definitely motivated me to go outside and walk more. It is a lot of fun to play and very immersive. There are only a couple of issues I have with the game. First, it is very difficult to refill energy since the best way is to go to an inn. The nearest inn to my house is across an interstate, which is nearly impossible to cross for me. So, the only way for me to refill my energy is to pay which I don’t want to, since I don’t have the money to do so. Also, since inns, greenhouses, and fortresses are located in real-life locations, they are inaccessible to me since I live in a very suburban neighborhood and the only way for me to reach these places is by crossing a very busy and dangerous interstate or by driving there, which I can’t often do since I don’t have a car. I feel as though inns, greenhouses, and fortresses should be placed in other areas apart from real-life places, which would be much more accessible for me and possibly for many other players. I also feel like there should be a different way to fully refill the energy since me, and possibly other people, are unable to access an inn. I really hope this is taken into consideration because I thoroughly enjoy this game and the entire concept and I have a great time playing it.

  • I’m greatly enjoying the game, however Jul 12, 2019

    By Bsb_lvr
    It is too difficult to get energy. In Pokémon go I never had an issue getting poke balls, In fact I often maxed out. There are too many greenhouses in my town. They are everywhere and pretty useless imo. I attempted to use one once but as I’ve never had an issue getting ingredients I really don’t need to waste my time with them. Inns are a completely different story however. I have to drive across town to find a good selection of inns. They are so spread out and having to use my car to get to them defeats the purpose of the game. There is only one park so far that I have found that have multiple inns within walking distance of each other, a green house, and a fortress which is nice because I enjoy the fortresses but can’t play too often as it takes too much of my energy. The only issue tho is this park isn’t exactly close to me. I think if you’re going to have so few inns, they need to give more energy. Very rarely do I get 5 or 10. It’s mostly 3 and I don’t have time to sit for 5 mins for it to refresh for another 3 energy that’s typically gone with one battle and I don’t want to drive 10 blocks back and forth between inns every 5 mins as that’s a huge waste of my gas. Please fix this inn issue and the game will be perfect.

  • Good but… Jun 23, 2019

    By Veinexes Videos
    It’s a great game though uses the developers strengths and ideas that they learn from Pokémon go to help them make an enjoyable experience. However, in my main argument is with the wizarding energy. For those who don’t know this is the energy that is required to cast spells, think of it like polka balls in Pokémon go you need to visit inns to recharge your energy by eating meals. You recharge is based on what meal you eat and can be anywhere from 2 to 10 points of energy, And can re-charge again every five minutes. You use up one energy every time you cast a spell whether it succeeds or not in capturing the confoundable. Your energy has a maximum amount of 75 so you can gain over this amount the part that I I’m slightly annoyed at is that energy does not re-charge normally even at a rate of say one per hour. Neither does it re-charge upon leveling up where as in Pokémon go you could be given at least maybe 10 to 20 balls when you level this sometimes forces you to either re-charge with the limited gold that you’re given or to camp outside in this until you’ve reached a good amount of energy. It’s more of a small annoyance than a dealbreaker but with the amount of times you have to sometimes cast at one target you can end up running very low on energy very quickly

    I used to love this game and all the fun things you can do with it, but after all the recent updates this year it's become almost impossible to play and level up and I'm beginning to dislike how long it takes to improve yourself. I also dislike that I keep finding all the same collectables and rarely find any new ones, and I frequently travel all over. Reading others' reviews about recent updates shows me I'm not the only one who's upset with this game now.

  • Good idea on paper Jun 27, 2019

    By FakeChris hardwick
    I was one of the many who were extremely excited for the prospect and idea of this game. Even before it was officially announced I remember theorizing and pretending in my head what a game like this could be. Ultimately thought it’s interesting on the first hour maybe two hours but once you get to the nitty gritty it’s fairly rinse and repeat. This game is good on paper but somehow they failed the execution. With an overload of bugs and lag that has still not been fixed since launch. Not to mention after using your wand to get confoundables you run out of energy and the game either requires you to go to a inn or buy coins with real money which in turn gets you energy. Assuming you like most people would prefer the free option it’s still not practical. It restores very small amounts of energy per visit to inn and that’s only 10% of the time you visit them. The other 90% is broken and freezes upon entering the inn and requires you to completely restart the game over and over until you are lucky enough to have the inn work. This goes for green houses and the castles you find in the world as well. Speaking of castles those are pretty fun but the combat is a bit tedious and repetitive at the same time if that’s even possible. Overall it’s fun at first but I strongly advise you wait a few months until patches are rolled out and maybe they listen to objective criticism. 2/5 go back to Pokémon go.

  • Could Be Better Jun 27, 2019

    By whoknows7
    It’s ok. A lack of available spell energy is really the worst part of the entire game. Sure it is massively overcomplicated and under explained at the beginning. And most of the motivation for what you are doing doesn’t actually make a bit of sense, but all that could be overlooked if the game’s main lifeblood, spell energy, was easier to obtain. There just aren’t enough Inns, and the energy you get from the Inns isn’t enough. The greenhouses honestly seem mostly worthless, there is no way they should be as plentiful as they are. And you should be able to have the option to “dine” at a greenhouse (eat a vegetable, etc). The greenhouses plus the fact that you can’t dine/spin at the fortresses really makes it difficult. Another small annoyance is the map resetting to a zoomed in position facing north whenever you exit back to the map from somewhere else. Why? It drives me nuts. Overall, it feels like this will be far more repetitive than Pokémon Go due to the limited amount of items you are trying to collect. This is only exacerbated by the fact that you have to click on everything just to see if it’s one you need, unlike being able to see what Pokémon it is on the map so you don’t have to waste time repeatedly doing this. This game could be fun, but companies have a tendency not to listen to their customers, so it will probably stay the way it is.
