2.0 out of 5 stars Good game - but it's not finished !, 20 Nov 2001
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (PS) (Video Game)
Unfortunately in the rush to release this game to co-incide with the release of the film, I think the results show that they hurried it a bit.
The game 'hangs' the music can also 'hang' and there are parts of the game where you cannnot proceed unless you complete the 'task' i.e in Gringotts Bank where you are collecting knuts,which is 'a particulaly tiresome task' unfortunately you need the tenacity of Harry Potter himself, and if you can't collect a sufficient amount of money, there is no way to progress through the game.
There are also very few save points, and if this is really aimed at younger players, that becomes very frustrating if you only have a certain amount of time to play the game each time.
My boys age 9 and 7, are nevertheless still enjoying it (because its HP)but I can see it has been dissapointing, when they would normally play a new PS game to death , they have already become frustrated and have gone back to other favourite games.
Sorry, it doesnt live up to the quality of the books/film. Shame on you Electronic Arts.
