Awesome entertainment value, great for kids and adults who play along with them


My 7 year old daughter and I have been searching for a good computer game to play ever since we finished up 101 Dalmations on the PC more than a year ago. I’ve read her the first three Harry Potter books, and then discovered this collection. It is a big winner.

You get four different games (which each originally sold for the cost of this collection, or more). We finished the Sorcerers Stone in about two weeks of evening play.

It has plenty of play value to get us to go back, mainly to find the hidden secrets we did not find the first time, and to play some better games of Quiddich.

We have just begun playing the Chamber of Secrets. Everything about this one is an upgrade from Sorcerer’s Stone: smoother play, more spells, more hidden areas, new activities, new features. We are enjoying it immensely.

Some kids are game fanatics, and can handle the controls alone. Another reviewer was correct, a game controller makes these much easier.

My daughter and I share the controls when we play together. In these games, she takes the mouse to cast spells and direct Harry’s point of view, I work the arrow keys to move us around. We have quite a lot of fun together this way.

The games feature the same story line and content as the books. Expect the same (very low) violence level as the books.

So I’m giving this bundle 5 stars based on just games. Heck, I would have given it 4 stars for the Sorcerer’s Stone alone, or 5 stars for the Chamber of Secrets alone. This is a super value.

Great Games in a Great Set at a Great Price!, December 17, 2005

This set includes the first 4 Potter games for PC: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and Quidditch World Cup.

This is a cool deal! This set cost less than more stores sell Prisoner of Azkaban alone.

The Games (1-3) are model closely after the stories including much that the movies skip or alter. Like tje Hagrid’s gift of a flute in Sorcerer’s Stone. They also include Peeves the Poltergeist.

The Hogwarts Castle is styled after the film and the books and a great deal of effort went into capturing the feel of the famous school of witchcraft and wizardry. It is loaded with secret passages, candy and wizard cards.

The graphic are pretty good (on all platforms) and the actors used create their own interpretation of the chief characters.

Game 3, Prisoner of Azkaban is much more in the spirit of the movies rather than the books, the faces of the characters more closely resemble their Warner Brother counterparts, and the Hogwart’s students wear school uniforms (instead of robes with crests over street clothes). This isn’t a complaint, either way.

I enjoyed both versions of the series.

The fourth game in this set:The Quidditch World Cup is not an adventure game, but a sports game, using elements from basketball, soccer and football to recreate Quidditch game play more elaborately than in the other 3 games.

THIS GAME WAS NOT BASED ON THE NEWLY RELEASED MOVIE, but came out based solely on the fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

You can play proffessional Quidditch play for the World Cup as a team in the Quidditch League using players like Krum, playing the country of your choice (including playing for the States). This leads me to my one complaint: YOU CAN’T PLAY IRELAND. You can’t play as, or against Ireland’s Quidditch team. But, QWC is still the best game of the set.

If don’t want to play in the league for the World Cup, there is also the option of Hogwarts house play.

All 4 games come in a single-4 disc jewel case, not individually packaged within the 12″ box.
