Description official descriptions

Two years after versions on other platforms, the then-current consoles got their own adaptation of the first Harry Potter book and film. Like in the computer and PlayStation versions, Harry Potter's first year at school of magic Hogwarts is presented as a 3D action-adventure title.

After a tutorial at Ollivander's Wand Shop and an introductory first night at Hogwarts, the game is organized into distinct days and nights. Days mostly consist of lessons, where usually Harry will learn new spells. The more interesting stuff happens at night, of course, when Harry sneaks around the castle to do things like meeting Draco Malfoy for a duel, fighting a troll in the dungeons, and other important scenes from the film and book.

Most tasks involve platform sections, where Harry has to jump over chasms and balance along edges. Often, creatures will be in the way that have to be fought using the correct spells, and magic must also be used to solve the occasional puzzle. At night, Harry must watch out for prefects patrolling the floors of the castle to avoid getting sent back to the common room. There's also broomstick flying in the game, including a Quidditch match against Slytherin.

After classes, Hogwarts can be freely explored. At any time, it is possible to revisit school lessons to get better grades, often only possible after some more advanced spells have been learned. Also, lots of collectibles can be found both in the open and hidden areas: collecting 20 wizard cards increases Harry's health and Every Flavour Beans can be traded in Fred and George's shop for more cards and some other useful items.

Fun game to play, but there were a few problems.

The Good
The storyline was great! It was pretty accurate to the movie.

Christmas and Halloween are in the game.

The graphics are good for a game made in its time.

The sounds and music are great. I like the music in the game.

When you pick up beans, you hear what the flavor is.



The Bad
The game has signs that it was rushed. One time, I was walking through the Grand Staircase and the walls looked funny.

The only prefects I saw in the game were Gryffindor prefects.

The only place you see the inside of in Diagon Alley is Ollivander's Wand Shop.

I have no clue what this was, but it was WEIRD! I was walking in the dungeons and decided to go inside the potions classroom. Well, I went inside and I was in another room besides the potions classroom! The room had a bunch of lit torches on one side of it, and I tried to go over to them, but some invisible wall held me back, I also went another direction, but another invisible wall held me back. This is what really freaked me out: The door to the rest of the dungeon was TRANSPARENT. I could see through it and into the rest of the dungeon. Well I went back into the Dungeon Corridor and then back into the room and it was still there. Then i went out and back into the room and the potions classroom was there again.

The Bottom Line
It is a really enjoyable game, but I recommend it only to hardcore Potter fans.
