While I’ve had my Xbox 360 for a little over three years, I’ve never once picked up a sports title, not because they’re too different from the adventure gameplay that I like, but because I’ll be damned if I paid for a game only to see a bigger number slapped on the title year after year with a different roster. I’ve also never purchased a Harry Potter game, but I should think the reason for that would be more obvious: Until now they’ve never made one I felt remotely interested in playing. This week I’m trying my hands at both!
