Each level of the game concentrates on a different aspect of the story: attending classes (such as charms, herbology, defence against the dark arts, potions with the evil Snape); visiting Hagrid; having to collect Bertie Botts beans so that Fred & George Weasley will give you Wizard's cards which you need to beat He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named; win points for your house and, of course, learn and play Quidditch.
The graphics look pretty good, but the real winner is the sound, the music is just perfect and the eerie sound effects makes you believe that you really are at Hogwarts School. The only criticism is that the game is very short and even younger kids will complete it relatively quickly. If you are a Harry P fan then you won't be disappointed, if you are looking for a challenging game action adventure game then you might want to look elsewhere. --Jenny Fisher
Players 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. Along the way, Harry will explore the halls of Hogwarts and its surrounding grounds, study to be a wizard, learn Quidditch, collect objects to solve puzzles, become skilled at spells and potions, discover secret passages and locations, and interact with memorable characters from J.K. Rowling's magical world.
The PC version features an array of stealth-based gameplay as well as traditional encounters as players guide Harry through the halls of Hogwarts, sneaking around to avoid confrontations with nosey characters like Filch and Peeves. Many of the adventures in the PC version are dynamic, leading to environments that change over time, such as moving stairs and relocating classrooms. The PC version also features a fast, arcade-style Quidditch game to further immerse players in the magical world of Harry Potter. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone will be developed for the PC with ease of play in mind. The simple interface will consist of just the mouse and one key on the keyboard. The required system specifications will be minimal, ensuring that Harry Potter's biggest fans can easily install and play his latest interactive adventure.
