The most action-oriented installment in a decade of “Harry Potter” games based on the film series, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” is a pretty decent third-person cover-based shooter, à la “Gears of War.” Does that make this “Gears of Wizarding War?” More or less, though there’ll be no chainsawing enemy wizards in half here; Death Eaters fall in a cloud of black smoke, not a spray of blood.

The game starts off with the robbery of Gringotts bank and moves quickly from there to the town Hogsmeade and Hogwarts school as Harry and his friends search for Lord Voldemort’s horcruxes. The magic bolts fly fast and furious throughout, ranging from precise single-shot spells like Expelliarmus, which can break an opponent’s Protego shield spell, to the rapid-fire Expulso, which delivers a hail of fire whose accuracy decreases greatly the longer it’s used. New spells are introduced periodically, and ducking behind objects for cover is a necessity.
