As Lord Voldemort’s grip on the Wizarding’s World tightens, Harry, Ron and Hermione are more determined than ever to continue Dumbledore’s work and defeat the Dark Lord. But where are his Horcruxes, what are the Deathly Hallows and how will they discover more about them while on the run?
This will all become clear in this 7th Harry Potter Game where Harry and his friends are faced with numerous objectives throughout their adventure. In fact this Game is more a Shooter than an adventure Game where bullets and guns are replaced by castings Spells and throwing Potions.
The Game is also very dark, it is playing mainly at dawn and night.
Installation and becoming familiar with the Controls
You can either play the Game with the Keyboard/Mouse or with the XBOX 360 Controller for Windows. If you play with the Gamepad first activate and then start the Game.

For your convenience, Electronic Arts has included DirectX 9.0c, EA Download Manager, Microsoft Visual C++ SP1 2005 Redistributable package and Adobe® AIR® on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ - Part 1 disc.
Please have these installed.
Saving and Loading
The Game automatically saves your progress as you play. An Autosave Icon will appear on the bottom right of the screen.
So you can’t backtrack to previous Save Blocks unless you prepare a folder with the Saved Games (like I explained with the previous Harry Potter Games).
If you like to play it safe make a separate folder where you copy Save Blocks per Level. Save Blocks are indicated in the Walkthrough in blue (like 3.2 meaning Level 3, Save Block 2). You can always store your latest Saved Game (two files) and copy any Save Block in case you want to replay a part of the Game.
The Saved Games path (in Windows 7) is:
\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Electronic Arts\Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows(TM) - Part 1.
To continue with your saved adventure, choose Continue Game in the main Menu.
Playing the Game
Before beginning a brand new Game, choose your Preferences.
Since the Game is quite dark you may adjust the brightness (you can change that any time)
Adjusting the Brightness
Subtitles on is a good option too.
Select your Sound setting. If you have a Surround system select Surround.
Select the Audio setting
You may have gotten a Bonus Pack if you pre-ordered the Game as a Limited Edition. If so, open the Unlock Menu and type the code you have received. In my case that were Super Strength Potions.
The Unlock Menu
Enter Unlock Code
Super Strength Potions (special pre-order Bonus)
Finally, select New Game in the main Menu and Choose a Difficulty Level.
Select your Difficulty level.
“Medium” is a good choice
While the Game is loading you’ll get some good advice:
Tap and hold LB whilst Dementors are in the area to cast Expecto Patronum
[0.1] Someone enters the Gates to a Castle.
A Python-like big snake also enters the premises where Lord Voldemort is residing. Some companions are with him in the room.
The Gates to a Castle
These are Dark Times. Our world has faced no greater threat than it does today. There have been disappearances, murders, but I say this, your Ministry remains strong... we will keep the people safe.
Someone is suspended in a bag. Voldemort:
I believe you know our guest? ... Miss Charity Burbage, lover of Muggles and all their ways...
(to the snake) Enough, Nagini. What news?
The Order has learned that they have infiltrated the Ministry, they are moving him tonight. There have been too many mistakes where Harry Potter is concerned. Tonight I will kill Harry Potter in Person.
