Trivia

This game was re-released for the PS2 in 2003, after the next title in the series (Chamber) had already got a PS2 release. This is because when the game for the PS1 proved a massive success (as had the film), it was decided that rather than do a straight forward port to the next console, a whole new game would be created from scratch, coinciding with releases on other then new consoles, Xbox and Gamecube. In the meantime the second film in the series was released, which made it necessary to finish its accompanying game first. See more »

Goofs

When opening all doors, they swing away from Harry no matter if he is on the outside or inside of the doors. See more »

Alternate Versions

Depending on which audio language you choose, Harry reacts differently to some of the bean flavours. This is particularly apparent in the case of coffee, which he seems to like in English & french but dislikes in Swedish & German, and spinach, where the exact opposite is true. See more »

Potter casts the magic to gamers
15 August 2015 | by peb1999See all my reviews

The best version of the first Potter game is definitely on the GBA, which has the most RPG elements of all the systems. It truly captures the feel of being at Hogwarts with a grand sense of adventure and exploring and it never lags all the while GBA: 8/10 The PC version is the most easy, most basic version of the game and takes no more than 3 hours to beat. And yet it's super fun! And it really is, well, magical. PC: 8/10 The Play Station port is certainly where the graphics are at their lowest point, but they are easy to forgive, as the game play presents itself as a fun and challenging experience worth playing, making this one the best of the console versions. Play Station: 7/10 Later on in 2003, they decided to release Sorcerer's Stone on next gen consoles which brought in better graphics, but also a lesser quality. The Game Cube and Xbox ports were at least decent, you could tell they put in some effort and tried here. But they didn't have the sense of wonder and magic the other versions before had. They aren't great, but they end up alright. Game Cube and Xbox: 6/10 The Play Station 2 is the worst port of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It is dull, boring and ever so predictable. I had very little fun and I had enjoyment, but not enough to call this game a good one. It's just a forgettable, mediocre button-masher. Play Station 2: 5/10 But I'm sure you've noticed at the top of this review, there is an 8/10. Yes, I am a ridiculously huge Harry Potter fan. Yes, I probably added an extra star for nostalgia. But the PC and GBA versions are done so well, proving there can be good licensed games every once in a while. Magical they are indeed. And for that reason, I think Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone video game deserves an overall rating of an 8/10.
