Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Gameplay Movie 2

  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!
  2. A good one despite its dated appearance and wonky handling of the character's movement...captures the magical nature of its license quite well.

    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.

    Plenty playable, even for more experienced gamers. [Feb 2002, p.118]
  5. A PlayStation game that will disappoint Potter fans around the world with its bland graphics, blocky characters, lifeless locales, frustrating challenges, and uninspiring gameplay.
  6. Next-gen games notwithstanding, HP's graphics are well below average. The textures are of the absolutely flat, glued-to-the-wall variety, there's tons of pixilation, and everything is generally ugly.
  7. A lesson in boredom. Without a jump command, the platforming elements are all but wasted, while the spell-flinging portions of the game are equally forgettable.

    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. Expand

Besides that, it was a dream come true for every Harry Potter fan. Hogwarts is well designed and the graphics are really nice for PS standards! It´s maybe not the best Harry Potter game ever released, but especially for fans worth a look! Expand

If you don't like Harry Potter or do not know a damn about him, opt for something more serious and bloody!! Expand

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer?s Stone was not a good game. It was not very fun. It has no replay value. It does not have good controls. It Harry Potter and the Sorcerer?s Stone was not a good game. It was not very fun. It has no replay value. It does not have good controls. It made Quiddich a chore. Most importantly, it butchered the original storyline. Simply put, more time should have been spent on it (it is obvious that they rushed the game as there is a room in the game which is impossible to use. . .among other glitches). One of the only good things about the game is that there are several mini-games. Unfortunately, most of these are easy and/or tedious. The voiceovers are classic though. Easily the best part about the game, the voiceovers are quite nice. Expand
