A Wizard Game!,

This review is from: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (PS) (Video Game)
Hi I'm Jamie and I have watched the film yesterday, so i wanted to play the game as soon as possible. I think the game is very replayable. The game dosnt follow the story of the film or the book. It is however based on the characters and all the scenery. Any true Harry Potter would enjoy it. I started playing it, and could not put it down. I was on it for 5 hours.
Harry runs about shouting 'Flipendo', which is the standard attack against small baddies.The spells are very cool. and there are several ones you have to do yourself, and they are from the books. You learn the spells from lessons.
It isnt particluarly hard or frustrating, unlike sone other games. It is a real pleasure to play.
There are many different challengers and no real levels. You collect cards and house points. You have to explore Hogwarts, looking out for some nasty suits of armpour and yellow conquer creatures. Many creatures that havent been seen so far in the books, appear in the game. They are in the magical creatures book.
The game revovles around collecting several flavours of Berti Bots every flavour beans. Including some bogey and earwax flavour!!!
Draco malfoy is much more evil in the game. In the books hes just an annoying bully but in the games he is a key force of evil.
As usual there is alot of platform jumping, but its not very hard to do.
If you buy this game you will have a great time.
This game never gets boring.. and you don't have to the same jump a thousand times"!!
As Ron said to Harry "Just you wait, its the best game in the world!"
