The most famous boy wizard's first-year adventure gets a next generation update as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone comes to PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube in this reissue of the title. The updated release features presentational enhancements designed to make use of the power of the 128-bit generation systems. The gameplay and story remain true to the initial release (which was designed for home computers and the original PlayStation): a third-person 3D action-adventure based on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the first novel in J.K. Rowling's explosively popular series.
Players take the role of the prodigious young magician as he begins his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, joined by other favorite characters such as Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and even Draco Malfoy. Harry Potter can explore the grounds at Hogwarts, spend time with Hagrid, and even join a quick game of quidditch. However as in the novel, Harry's special gifts are noticed not only by his instructors but by darker forces as well, and he may even come face-to-face with "You-Know-Who" himself before this adventure is over. ~ T.J.
