Wizards Unite has been a fun, small dose of magic in my daily life for a week, and I plan to continue dipping into the wizarding world each day for the foreseeable future, but other than throwing a bubble around a troll, I’m not sure how engaging all of these mechanics will remain in the long run.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite mobile game is exactly what you’d expect it to be – an awesome way of integrating augmented reality with the HP verse. It uses its lore and targeted audience to its advantage and brings a location-based delightful play with motifs from the universe. It is free-to-play, which only adds more points to it and so far it hasn’t disappointed.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a very good GPS based AR game, but it borrows so much from the likes of Pokémon GO that it is left without a distinctive hook or personality of its own. It feels like a Pokémon GO reskin. A damn good reskin, with a lot of effort put into it, but a reskin nonetheless. This is unlikely to inspire the fans of other GPS AR games to jump on board, but if you're a Harry Potter fan that likes to go on walks, there is no reason not to try it out.
