  1. It’s not perfect, but Harry Potter is a sterling, fun play wrapped up in the magic of Hogwarts and it’s enchantments, making it a must have for muggles and wizarding folk alike!

    Potter fans will probably enjoy this more than others, but judging by the slim pickings of good games on the PS one these days, anyone who enjoys a little adventure probably could have some fun with this one.
  3. A good one despite its dated appearance and wonky handling of the character's movement...captures the magical nature of its license quite well.
  4. It opens a world of enchantment for younger players and delivers an interactive version, albeit scaled down, of the film.

    Pretty enjoyable game for what it is and when it was made. Although, I do have to say, the bank part in the cart can burn lol Not responsivePretty enjoyable game for what it is and when it was made. Although, I do have to say, the bank part in the cart can burn lol Not responsive enough to make the maneuvers. I'd remember having this game as a lad but never finishing it because of that part, so I booted my emulator up, maxed out all graphical and audio improvements and had a good time with it. Would recommend emulating it (long as you own it in some form) because with the improvements you can apply with emulation, the game isn't too much of an eye sore. Full Review »

    Well it is pretty faithful adaptation of book, which is not very common in games based on books/movies of that era. Gameplay however isWell it is pretty faithful adaptation of book, which is not very common in games based on books/movies of that era. Gameplay however is completely standard. Controls are horrible, I wish there was strafing and more fluent mouse handling. However minigames like chasing Malfoy and idea of many secret across castle was pretty fun. Full Review »
