Product Description

Product Description

Be the young wizard in training Harry Potter, learning to master all things magical in a world filled with fun and danger. Overcome adversity and challenges, and encounter unforgettable characters from J.K. Rowling's worldwide bestseller. You take the role of Harry Potter as he enrolls in Hogwarts and embarks on a journey to unlock the secrets of his own magical abilities. Harry will have to complete and solve tasks and puzzles, learn how to use spells, gather potions and collect items in order to wear down the stamina of his opponents and defeat them, as well as battle creatures and occasionally face off against evil characters. As you gain information and successfully complete confrontations, they will receive Experience Points (EXP). As you collect EXP, you effectively increase in strength and abilities, and will be able to upgrade spells you have learned and engage in more physical challenges.

What if you could leave the nonmagical world of the Muggles behind and enroll in Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft? Now you can find out in the PlayStation release Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Play as Harry, the precocious wizard, and adventure with him and amazing characters from the J.K. Rowling book that started it all.

Climb, jump, and sneak as you explore 3-D environments faithful to Hogwarts and its grounds. Master your wizardry skills, such as piloting a broomstick, casting spells, gathering items to mix potions, scoring points for Gryffindor, and more. Learn your lessons and uncover wizard sweets, broomsticks, chocolate frogs, famous wizard cards, and even the invisibility cloak.

Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Rubeus Hagrid, Albus Dumbledore, and many of the book's other characters join Harry as he masters the sport of Quidditch, takes a 3-D roller coaster ride through Gringotts, and shops at Diagon Alley. Explore Hogwarts, its grounds, the Forbidden Forest, and more as you play through puzzles and minigames and battle evil creatures.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone uses colorful 3-D graphics to capture the daring and enchantment of Harry's world, rendering it in spirited detail. And as Harry, you'll experience the adventure and thrill of a young wizard's first year at Hogwarts, as well as the awesome responsibility of finding the Sorcerer's Stone and challenging He-Who-Cannot-Be-Named. But first you'll have to complete your courses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what i expected! March 11, 2002
By Teco
Many games based on movies are just bad. For example, the game of Tarzan for psx [stunk] big time, or the Emperor's New Groove, or the Fifth Element. When i heard of Harry Potter coming out for the psx, i tought it was going to be as bad as any game based on a movie. I was a bit wrong. This game is very fun...while it lasts! Check out the good and bad things about it below:
The Good Things:
-Somethings are based on the book
-The characters are just the same as in the movie
-Hogwarts is huge, there is plenty to explore
-You assist all classes including the quidditch practice
-You fight against Voldermort and Quirell
-The magic spells are amazing: Incendio, Alohamora, Wigardium Leviosa, etc.
The Bad Things:
-There are too many things that are not in the book
-Harry Potter doesn't talk
-The conversations between characters are briefly
-The battle against Voldemort is quite pathetic
-The end is very bad
-Many things are briefly described by the narrator in a book
-The forbidden forest is not scary
-Voldemort appears frequently using a green magic
-All the magic used by Harry is basically following the order of bottoms. Example: Press X then O and finally X again: very simple
-Very short and easy
Overall, the game is a worth buying game for any Harry Potter fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a masterpiece, but fun November 10, 2001
By A Customer
The main action of the game is a lot like Tomb Raider, but simplified and with more variety. You control Harry in a 3-D world (Hogwarts) and explore and collect items. You also interact with lots of characters from the books, who will often give you little quests to do. You can attend classes to learn spells. There are also parts where you have to fly on a broomstick, and so far these have been the hardest parts for me. It's tough to get the hang of contolling the broomstick. The game moves along really quickly, roughly following the book. It's fun enough to play - they certainly could have done far worse with this game. But don't expect the same kind of experience (or quality level) as the books give you or you will be dissapointed. I didn't expect this game to be very good, and it's better than I expected. Exploring Hogwarts is fun. The graphics and voices are a little weak (the graphic of Harry in the hospital wing after you get a game over, for example... if you showed that one to me without telling me who it was supposed to be, I'd never guess it was Harry Potter!), but at least the Brittish accents don't sound fake. :) The gameplay is pretty easy, but once in a while a mini-game (like flying) will be frustratingly hard. If you're a Harry Potter fan then give this game a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the Kiddies November 25, 2001
I recieved this game about four days ago. I opened the package and began playing it for about three hours. After that time I was about 40% done with the game. The next day, I played a total of three hours, and I was about 75% done. On the third day I played about two hours and completed it. Do you catch my drift?
Now, I would classify myself as a very experienced gamer and have played a number of very difficult games. I would classify this as the easiest game I have ever played on the Playstation console(next to Ridge Racer). I will give it credit, however, the castle and the surrounding area was very well designed, the interactions with other characters is very good, and the levels are fun and interesting.
If you parents are looking for a good game for your 7-12 year old, I would suggest this game. If you are looking to buy for 13+, I would continue my search elsewhere. Overall, this was a very fun and interesting game, but it wasn't very challenging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't disappoint September 29, 2001
I played a short demo of this game at E3, and it's a 3-D action-adventure game with its setting in Hogwarts. You enter different classrooms to learn spells, then put those spells to use to solve puzzles. I didn't see what Quidditch looks like, but it'll be in there, too. One of the developers told me the PS version has about 10 times the content of the PC version, since the latter is intended for a younger audience. The Game boy and GBA versions are also completely different games, so that should be interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars "One more minute ..." November 29, 2001
That's what I kept telling my 7-year-old ... "your turn in just one more minute!" Very good game! Downright addicting. Like it very much, at least the 50% that I've played (in our house we rent before we buy). I especially liked the graphics, very creepy! Voices are really good too. One rather irritating thing about the game was that the choices given were small ... actually there was only one choice. Only one way, one path through the game and if you can't complete the task at hand, you are stuck. And if your 7-year-old doesn't have a grown-up nearby to help and get them "unstuck", this game can frustrate him! Sometimes frustrated me! But that goes with the nature of any game ... if it was too easy, it wouldn't be any fun!
I noticed in a previous review that someone complained about the directional flying controls. I noticed the same thing, that they were reversed and it made Quidditch darn near impossible to do. Easy fix: go to control options! There's a category for "flying controls" with "normal" and "reverse" options. Makes playing whole lot easier.
