Product Description

Product Description

Great Games and Accessories for the Playstation 2 (PS2) from Gamesbuyer.

Manufacturer's Description

Continuing the game design style first used in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the graphics and gameplay for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone--previously available for the PlayStation, PC, Game Boy Advance, and Game Boy Color--are updated for next-generation consoles for an even richer experience in Hogwarts year one. Making the most of new technology, the locations in and around Hogwarts and Diagon Alley are displayed in 3-D.

Players take the role of Harry Potter as he arrives for his first year at Hogwarts and embarks on a journey to unravel the mystery of the Philosopher's Stone. An adventure full of fun and magic, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone allows players to explore a variety of multi-layered 3-D environments. The game includes encounters with many of the characters familiar to readers of the fiction, including Harry's best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, Rubeus Hagrid, Professor Dumbledore, and his nemesis Draco Malfoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely the best Potter game to date 3 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase
This was a very enjoyable game. It is based on the same castle as used in Chamber of Secrets, but with some differences. For example, you no longer need any special spells to use the main secret passages, allowing you to explore/use these from the beginning. Also, instead of simply going into a classroom and seeing what chests are there, there is a puzzle element to relealing these chests - different in each room, which is quite nice.
The variety of spells is quite good, if slightly samey to players of previous games, and the puzzle element is excellent.
On the negative side, you have no access to the Quidditch pitch in this game (although you do have to play a single game of Quidditch) - there is a disappointing lack of flying challenges available. On the other hand the flying sim seems much better, and you can go through archways, and through passages without banging your head on the ceiling! You can also fly at night, once you (eventually) get your broom.
Another minus point is that there is still no mechanism for skipping cut scenes - not so much a problem first time through the story, but very irritating when you have returned to a save.
There are one or two tedious bits, but nothing in comparison to the previous Potter games. On the whole, this is a good game, but if you already have Chamber of Secrets, it's not worth the money atm - wait till the price drops, or buy it second-hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 18 Dec. 2003
By A Customer
If you've read the description on Amazon (as of 18 December this was unchanged) have no fear: they're wrong. This game is not the PS1 version upgraded, it's a completely different game and worth the money.
Using the same background as Chamber of Secrets, the graphics are crisp and clear and the game enjoyably playable. The spell challenges are challenging enough without being too complicated for younger players, and the monsters are suitably monstrous, and some quite difficult to defeat. The story is, of course, essentially the one from the book, adapted to a game, but it is only in this that the new game resembles the PS1 version.
In short, it's lots of fun for HP fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars harry potter 26 Oct. 2008
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i played this on the ps2 and it was brilliant.the game gets harder and harder but it shows you hints along the way.it is very fun and you can explore numerous locations in or out of hogwarts.you even get to meet the charecters from the harry potter books and movies but look out for prefects,trolls,gremlins and more or they will hunt you down.the game features a great plot and the levels are well made.you can also collect and trade wizard cards and compete in broom levels where you have to get past rings.you can explore places like hogwarts,gardens,forests and find mysterious jelly beans to buy things with.this has got to be harry potters best game ever.

Despite an overhaul, and very nice graphics, I found this game frustrating, where it should have been fun. Control was very sporadic and showed signs that not enough play-testing was done before releasing this. Harry is infuriating when he struggles to target monsters in the middle of combat and flings spells at the horizon rather than where you wanted them. Sometimes you just can't spell-cast because an enemy is attacking first, leaving you helpless. Interestingly, play-throughs on YouTube cite similar opinions. I hear the sequels are a vast improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Larger and Better than before!!! 2 Nov. 2003
By A Customer
With bigger and better graphics, Harry Potter relives his succsessful first year at Hogwarts. Completely remodeled with 3D graphics and even more chances to interact with over 20 characters from the hit novel and movie by J.K. Rowling. In this game you can relive the story with exciting and edge of the seat graphics. You will be gripped and emotionally involved due to the well put together gameplay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple 16 Nov. 2011
By Pen
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good game for kids (maybe 14 and under) I bought it mostly as a collector piece but I have played it a little, it's mostly quite simple and repetitive. Not as slick and sophisticated as some of the later games but then it is about a decade old so I'll forgive it.

All in all, a decent game, but not one to rave about.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is a great play, haven't spent too much time on it as my playstation isn't at my house however when I have played it I have liked it a lot. It follows the story but at the same time there are things that make it a little more challenging!
