Harry Potter is known to many as a production aimed at young audiences. Can younger players experience the adventure in Hogwarts Legacy? What does this game have to offer and what should you pay special attention to?
Hogwarts Legacy not for the youngest
The universe created by J. K. Rowling is quite dark, although at times it is also fairy-tale-like and colorful. However, it should be borne in mind that the game’s plot is about the struggle between darkness and light, and the fantastic world is full of various creatures and magic, which makes the age requirements of Hogwarts Legacy a bit higher.
As for the language, it is quite calm and is not saturated with vulgarities, so in this regard there is no cause for concern.
Many locations are beautiful, such as much of Hogwarts and the village of Hogsmeade. However, there are also such locations as the Forbidden Forest. They arouse anxiety, are extremely dark and hide quite disturbing images.
In the game you can also encounter such creatures as trolls, goblins and ghosts. A considerable number of them can prove quite scary for a child.
There remains the question of magic itself. The battles are dynamic and allow you to freeze, knock back, repel and stun opponents. There is also access to Unforgivable Spells. These are used to torture (Cruciatus), take control (Imperius), and kill another person (Avada Kedavra).
For these reasons, slightly older players should dive into the Hogwarts Legacy adventure.
According to the PEGI classification, Hogwarts Legacy is intended for players over the age of 12. In some countries, the game has been rated unsuitable for players under 16.
