Walking around my local area with Wizard Unite reminded me of those first few weeks of Pokémon Go fever, when you’d see children and adults alike out on the streets at all times of day, catching monsters. I was the only one playing the game that I saw, but
I experienced some slowness and unreliability when I first tried the game, recalling the server issues that marred the launch of Pokemon Go, but by this morning it was zippy and stable.
The novelty will no doubt wear off, leaving Wizards Unite to Rowling mega-fans and the kinds of people who obsess over location-based gaming. In the meantime, get out this summer and give it a go.
