Hogwarts Legacy Metacritic score revealed as initial reviews roll in

Hogwarts legacy isn’t out for a few more days on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, but ahead of its highly anticipated release, reviews have gone live for the Harry Potter game. And so far, critical reception has been positive for the game, which comes as a surprise to some who thought the controversy surrounding the title might weigh heavily on Metacritic. Meanwhile, since the game’s reveal, there have been questions about whether Avalanche Software could live up to the hype given its rather mediocre release history. That said, it looks like the Utah-based has delivered. The game was always going to be a huge commercial success, but it’s also getting positive reviews so far.

At the time of writing, the Xbox Series X version has an 89 on Metacritic. If this rating is accurate, it means the game will likely be among the top rated games of 2023 in December. However, this is the highest rating for the game. The PS5 version currently sits at a slightly less impressive score of 86. Meanwhile, the PC version sits at an 83, with some reviewers citing PC-specific performance issues, something not very uncommon in the PC space. In fact, the recent remake of Empty spacewhich has established itself as a critically acclaimed one also has serious performance issues on PC.

As for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One versions, they won’t be out until April 4, so there are no reviews for these versions, at least not yet. It’s safe to assume these versions won’t be as good, but it remains to be seen how much downgrade they’ll take.

“While it doesn’t do everything perfectly, Hogwarts legacy stimulates the imagination with a rich world to explore and gameplay that empowers and thrills the player,” reads an excerpt from our official review-in-progress for the game. Harry Potter movies had the arduous task of taking words on a page and creating a visual language for them. Hogwarts legacy had the even more difficult task of taking that visual language and making it interactive, eventually expanding it all into something that’s fun to play and immerse yourself in. , Hogwarts Legacy is already one of the best games of 2023.”
