1-0 out of 5 stars Starship Crash Creator
This game is a stinking pile of crap. The best part about this game is the name it doesn't deserve- Starship Creator Deluxe. And the fun pretty much ends there. This CD features what Simon and Schuster call customisation options (an add-on disk that is a re-rendering of ships that you wouldn't care to see anyway), which also wastes your time creating variations of 10 ships that are not that much different (or any more fun) than what's already in the game. While you can supposedly interact with your customisable crew (um...well by selecting them from a list), and design the most heavily armed ship in starfleet (keep in mind, you choose all of this from a very limited list of parts and it is more like an interactive encyclopedia than anything creative), your choices are controlled by a budget (which completely ignores the ST universe). Then participate in missions with your new ship to see what it feels like to pay good money just to find out you're an idiot for buying this game. It begins with an insult to the name "Star Trek" featuring a graphic display that is NOT 3D, NOT 2D, NOT REALTIME, NOT CONTROLLED, AND NOT FUN!!! I urge any and all individuals who have possession of this game to burn it at their first opportunity. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a -1. If you are a gaming masochist, then by all means, be my guest and observe what has to be the worst ST game/simulator I have ever seen. I've downloaded free ST games that were better than this worthless piece of trash. Please heed my words, "SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!" I would rate this game with "0" Stars but the rating system doesn't allow that. This game sucks.

1-0 out of 5 stars Really Really Bad
This game is BAAAAD. I gave it one star because it is somewhat entertaining building your ship, but after that what do you really do with it? The missions are a joke, they look like a really crappy Flash website.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
Jeez, I couldn't even get the pictures to show after i had created the ship. The computer lets the ship run through and see how many problems it can run into. No interaction. A few bugs, no fun. Don't buy it guys.

1-0 out of 5 stars looks are deceiving!
I'm 8 years old and I love Star Trek. It's one of my favorite movies. But this game is REALLY bad. All you do is chose the crew, add onto the ship... then sit around and watch the computer do the rest. To have any fun, I guess you have to know computers really well, and be a programer. But for me, this was a waste of (hard earned) money.

4-0 out of 5 stars As good as I expected - no real complaints here.
I did a minimum amount of research before buying this game, so there were really no unpleasent surprises. It works just as the promotional information says it does.

I was aware that the game was out for a while before I got it. The newest version, "Warp II", is already out, but it doesn't offer as many ships, so I decided on the older version.

I am an on-line gamer, too, and a big Star Trek fan, but I bought this mostly for the "make your own starship" aspect and not the "gaming" aspect. As far as I am concerned, the starship creation part rocks and the gaming portion is a bonus way to see how your ship performs. If you buy, though, don't forget to get the patch on-line.

This version of the game allows you to import a digital picture of anyone you want and create a character out of them to crew your ships. That is very cool, and the only thing I really would want out of the new "Warp II" version is the ability to edit those pictures so that your subject appears to be in a Starfleet uniform -- if it works well. Not enough to make me want to run out and get it, so in the meantime I will enjoy "Creator Deluxe" and wait for "Warp II" to go to the bargain bin.

The only reason I did not give this game 5 stars is because I thought the producers could have put a little more into the graphics and animation. Maybe even a little more than "a little more", but all in all, I really liked it. ... Read more

Help your favorite teenage witch recover the Beanie of Ultimate Power in Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Brat Attack, a magical adventure game. It all starts with a package that should have been delivered to someone else. In it is the all-powerful propeller beanie, and Sabrina's cat, Salem, gets locked in a cage when her cousin Amanda decides she simply must have that hat. It's Sabrina's job to recover the cat and the hat from the Other Realm and defeat Amanda and her brat pack.

The "Labtop" contains all of Sabrina's spells, and throughout the game, you can store new magical ingredients and spells for later use. Also, make sure to stock up on plenty of energy along the way or you could get sent back to Limbo in the linen closet!

There's five different worlds to explore: Sabrina's house, the Spelleria, Amanda's Arena, Mars, and Sabrina's high school. If your own teenage (or preteen) witch enjoys the television show and has fun solving mysteries, this game should be right up her alley. It's not every day a girl gets to blast her enemies away merely by pointing a finger. With Sabrina at her side, we bet she'll find this problem-solving adventure game truly... spellbinding. --Jill Lightner ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A bit difficult for that age group
The box says 8-12 years old but I personally feel this game may be too challenging. I'm a 20 year old college student who got this game for x-mas and I had major problems getting through the levels with all the "bad guys" swarming around. It took me a few days to complete and I always ended the game that day very frustrated. If you need a hint, Aunt Louisa in the Labtop can be of great help. The graphics are pretty good but the instructions are lacking. Good luck with this game!

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but.....
It is really fun and challenging the first time you play, but once you beat it, it doesn't change. It becomes non challenging and boring, because it's too easy. If you like playing a game over and over again, and still be challenged, don't buy this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sabrina The Teenage Witch CD Rom Review.
It was very enjoyable and fun to try to find all the ingredients for the potion. I was on the edge of my computer.It wasn't very hard once you had figured out how to do it.I enjoyed finding Amanda and going into the other realm. Salem was funny especially by the remarks and jokes he made. I played this game over and over again and I never got bored. Out of all the computer games I have played this is by far the best.I would give it five stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars SABBY IS THE BOMB
tHIS IS A COOL GAME U GET TO MAKE SPELLS AND FIND SALEM
AND ITS REALLY HER VOICE, SALEMS VOICE AND HER SISTERS VOICE.
IT IS HARD TO ZAP THEM IN TIME THOUGH.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice game, but buggy
My nine year-old daughter liked playing this game, but the program is filled with too many bugs & glitches. We called the software support help-line and talked to a perfectly nice guy who had no idea how to help us (it turned out that he knew next to nothing about the Sabrina software). In the end, we finally gave up and left the software on a shelf, where it sits today. Very frustrating! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Okay game
This game isn't that hard to master, but it's best to watch the help movies before you decide to try and write a play yourself. It's hard to navigate the characters and the voices are very unrealistic (experiment with the different kinds you can have- if you have a lot of characters it's easier to understand who's talking). This is a good game for kids who like to write, and it helps because you have visual aids.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected!
I purchased this game when I was eight years old, and even then I was skeptical of how good this game could be. I assumed limited speech and set possibilities, but I was proved wrong. Today I am fifteen, and I have to admit I still can enjoy this game. There are infinite storyline possibilities, and even though the computer generated voices are not realistic, they are ammusing. I have spent many hours thinking and creating plot lines that range from the normal to the bizarre. There really is no limit in how you're play will turn out. The one problem I have with this game is that sometimes the it skips over dialouge, but that is rare. All in all this is a fun and easy to use game, and I would recomend it from the ages 6 to 12.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Cool
Fun if you want to do an American Girl play, but don't know how to write it. It's fun to direct stuff, and you can put in a microphone to do voices. At least you can in AG Premeire 2. This is fun! I got mine a few years ago; I still like it.

2-0 out of 5 stars American Girls Premiere
The American Girls Premiere had bad graphics and was not very exciting.The voices to choose from for your play were unrealistic.A small child would be very frustrated with this game because some of the instructions are unclear.Older children would probably enjoy this game,though. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The release of the classic side-scrolling platform game Prince of Persia changed computer games forever. Designer Jordan Mechner expertly wove elements of sword-fighting action and adventure game puzzles to create an addiction that was both easy to learn and fun to play.

Over 10 years have passed since Prince of Persia's debut, and computer game technology has improved exponentially. Red Orb Entertainment puts that technology to good use in the attractive Prince of Persia 3D, the third--and hopefully not last--title in the popular series.

Players assume the role of the Prince of Persia, who's once again forced to fight through an increasingly difficult set of areas to track down the kidnapped Princess. During the adventure, you'll battle guards, bandits, and other evil henchman while utilizing a varied selection of melee and bow weaponry. Crafty level design ensures plenty of familiar lever, floor panel, and rope-swinging puzzles. (Watch out for those spike traps!) Maneuvering the Prince within the new 3-D environment is perhaps the only minor gripe; lining up jumps and navigating tunnels with the sometimes too-fast Prince can become a tricky endeavor. Boasting startling 3-D graphics, dazzling levels, and familiar, easy-to-learn gameplay, Prince of Persia 3D should both delight old fans and collect many new ones. --Doug Radcliffe ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Horrible gameplay
I loved the original Prince of Persia, but I've hated this 3D version. The visuals are good, and I'm sure there are some great puzzles in the game, but I'll never get there. I've installed this game twice and each time I've removed it within an hour.

If you loved Tomb Raider's gameplay, you'll probably love this game. If (like me), you thought it was awkward, you'll hate this game.

Controlling the prince feels like parallel parking an 18-wheeler by remote control given only a randomly changing camera angle.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ahead of it's time
This game has been around for some time, but the PC graphic quality and gameplay stack up against anything new out there. Very simple to play, but extremely challenges as the game progresses, this will keep you occupied for quite some time. There are those who will complain that "It's not as good as" but if you want some inexpensive fun, this is a very good platform adventure game, that is better in many ways than a lot of it's rival titles

5-0 out of 5 stars This is one of my favorites
I've played and finished all three games in this series. Several times! The story line and puzzles keep you in suspense with good action too! I would love to see another entry in this series. I would have liked to see a more exciting cinematic on game completion but I thought the rest where really good. The puzzles are challenging and the sword fighting is excellent. The graphics are very good.

One of the great things about the first two games in this series was that the character's motion was much more natural and realistic than anything else on the market at that time. This game might be a drop below others of its time in the graphics and motion department but the graphics are still very good. To complain about the graphics is like complaining about a new Ford because there is a BMW available on the market. A Ford might not match a BMW but it's still a great car!

I've noticed that some people have complained about controlling the prince. My advice, use the number pad on your keyboard and you shouldn't have a problem. With a little practice you should not have a problem. If the camera angle is in a bad place, use the Enter key on your number pad to get a good look around (see the game instructions).

If the game seems slow or choppy, lower the resolution and gamma. Play this game in a dark room so you can keep the gamma pretty low.

The gore level (or lack of) was something that disappointed me a bit. When a wall blade killed the prince in POP2 you would see blood on the blade and the wall. The only blood you see in this game is in some of the background scenery and it's not much. High gore just means that the head is actually separated from the body if the prince walks through a blade. In low gore the head stays attached. There is no blood at all. I don't really call that gore. I don't play games just to see gore though so that doesn't reduce my overall opinion of the game.

One more note, there IS enough time in the last stage to finish. You just have to know how to use your weapons! By the time you get there you should have had enough practice for that. You cannot save in the middle of that level. If you don't make it you have to start that level over. I've done it more than once though so it has to be possible!

In short, great game! Highly recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars Prince of Persia 3D
Prince of Persia 3D is a third person game with a very long and hard single player gameplay. It is a platform jumper and the third sequal to the side scrolling pop games. Set in the 12th century persia the plot is the usual, villan captures princess, prince is in jail, prince escapes from the jail, fights baddies, get's through deadly obstacles, kills the villan and rescuses the princess. Only this time all the action is in third person 3D. Pop3D lives upto the other pop games in level design. The level design is very good and the puzzles are very well done. All of the levels are very long from prisons, castles, docks, snowy mountains, castle in the air and floating ruins, The levels are very hard and very fun to get through. You have to get through deadly spikes, run through a door before it shuts, grab a rope in mid air ect. Third person prespective is a good choice for the game but the view is very badly done. It is hard to control the prince. You have to do a lot of tedious jumping but it is very hard to do so because of the way the prince moves, he moves as if he is walking on a slippary floor. The combat is the most problem in the game, because after the prince draws his weapon he cannot move and it is hard to fight gaurds. The review at game center said that if the player keeps on hitting the Q,W,E key which is the default left, right, center attack keys the other person can be defeated easily, armed with the sword weapon it worked well and was very helpfull in fighting the gaurds.

Prince of Persia 3D is built on an ugly engine. The graphics are very bad graphics, charecter animation is very ugly, box-of-rocks enemy AI and many clipping problems. I dont mind if the graphics are bad if the gameplay is great and the gameplay here is great and fun, but the game runs very unsmooth, the framerates are bad. The load times are also very long, but thankfully the quick loading is almost instant as you will die a lot of times. Pop3D was a very fun game, I loved playing through all the levels and solving puzzles. I did not face any crashes or hangs too, I did face save game errors but the patch fixed it. The biggest and only problem with the game is the unsmooth built engine. Alas! if only the created a better engine or used an established quake3 or unreal engine.

2-0 out of 5 stars good intentions, but they did not live to the game
The promise for this game was awesome. However, even with a very good PC specifically loaded with hardware for games, the Prince of Persia 3D was an unfulfilled promise. That is, the flaws make the game not worth it. I guess the engine game is the one to blame. Interestingly that, designed in 1999, and it could not live to Quake III. The price is extremely hard to control, it does not respond to commands immediately, the camera moves wildly and very difficult to see in enclosed traps, etc. The end, with timed 150 seconds for battling the bad guy is definitely not enough unless you are a master. You work against the controlling of the prince as well as the bad guy. More work could be done to the betterment of this game, but I think the company has discontinued. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

From December 30, 1862, to January 1, 1863, the battle at Murfreesboro, fought over a three-day period along the Stones River near Nashville, was one of the costliest engagements of the American Civil War. In the end, William Rosecrans's Army of the Cubmberland overpowered Braxton Bragg's Confederates, forcing them to retreat ingloriously toward Chattanooga.During the following summer (September 19-20, 1863), Rosecrans's high-spirited Federals continued pushing back the ragtag Rebel army beyond Chattanooga, until they reached the wooded banks of Chickamauga Creek. There, Bragg's Confederates, now reinforced by James Longstreet's corps from the Army of Northern Virginia, surprised their now-outnumbered foe along the banks of this "River of Blood." The resulting two-day melee (Chickamauga) was one of the fiercest-fought and deadliest battles of the war, resulting in one of the few Confederate victories for Bragg's Army of the Tennessee. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Murfreesboro & Chicamauga. Ist Impressions
As this was the first of the Battleground series that I acquired, I was impressed with the ease at which you could enter into the ambience of the Civil War and move to the business end of the game. The videos and music were initially welcome and the graphics clean and quick to refresh. The toolbars are excellent and everything about the game made the length that I spent playing it most enjoyable. The only drawback is that Battleground 9 is so good it made 'Antietam' and 'Shiloh ' both very feeble is comparison. This is especially true for changing formations and artillery positions and the use of all enveloping red X's for visual targetting.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Civil War Games Extant
The Talonsoft games are, in my opinion, simply the best Civil War games available, despite sporting a six-year-old game engine. Every regiment and battery and every leader at brigade level and above is represented in the game. The terrain is accurately depicted and colorfully drawn, at about 125 yds per hexagon. The reason for four stars instead of five is the criteria; How much fun is this game? In quality it rates five stars, but in the longer scenarios, moving and firing all of those units can become a bit tedious. For a challenging game, you must have a human opponent, but there are clubs on the net where you can find opponents of every level of experience and ability, and the game plays well through email.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than Sid's RTS titles
I own all 5 civil war titles from Talonsoft, and I also own one of Sid's RTS titles. I can say without reservation that the turn-based talonsoft engine, however dated, plays far better and feels to me to be more realistic for the civil war battles. The detail in terms of commanders and units (quality, titles, placement, movement) is far better in the Talonsoft games of old. The best way to play the Talonsoft games is against another human player though, as the AI is only effective in the early stages of the games.

I would also like to see some middle ground between these two types of game, I wonder if someone will ever publish an effective campaign-style civil war title. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A "must-buy" for Pursuit fans; an "okay-buy" for trivia fans
If you like the original board game, you'll no doubt love this surprisingly expanded computer version. Though traditional play is well-emulated, two other forms of the game are included here, which are different enough to be considered unique. In "Party Play", contestants huddle around a keyboard, trying to buzz in before their competitors, rewarding not just the smart, but the quick as well. "Point Pursuit" also gives the possibility of multiple player action, but is perhaps most fun for single players looking for a quick, 20 question version that involves a bit of strategy.

With 2000 different questions, and several game play options, you'll no doubt be playing this game for a long time. To be sure, the low selling price makes this game an excellent value for money.

Having said that, there are problems.

First, as another reviewer has pointed out, it DOES crash a lot if you do anything less than a full install--an operation that takes half a gigabyte of hard disk space. And, unlike other software titles where a full install puts a lot of rarely-used cinematics on your hard drive, you pretty much need everything in the full install to play the game. There is, therefore, a noticeable slowdown during normal play if you haven't done a full-install. So even if Hasbro comes out with patches that'll fix the crash problem, you're still stuck needing a pretty big chunk of free hard disk space to play the game at its best. People with limited hard disk space might therefore find themselves in a frustrating position.

Second, Macintosh users are completely left out of the fun. Though the game appears to use technology easily enough converted to Macintosh use, there's not currently a version catering to that market.

Third, if you're a fan of computer trivia games, there's a sense of "too little too late" about this product. While it arguably has the most trivia questions of any major trivia brand, its use of multimedia technology isn't terribly innovative. It's all been done before, and better, by You Don't Know Jack and its many brand name cousins.

Ultimately, then, your potential enjoyment of this game depends largely on whether you're looking for a good trivia game or looking for Trivial Pursuit. If you love Trivial Pursuit (and have a lot of hard drive space) you'll be surprised at how much more playable this CD is than the board game. But if you love trivia in general--and want a game that's totally different from any other trivia game you know--you'll probably be happier with the You Don't Know Jack series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Educational, Challenging and Fun!
Whether you want trivia just for a fun challenge or are simply wanting to expand your mind to things you're unaware of, this game is perfect for it! My favorite feature is that many questions are supplemented with "additional" information after a question is answered by using visuals and audio to further enhance your knowledge and understanding. There are 2000 questions which do not repeat until all have been used, and you can play solo. The questions are fun, interesting, challenging and quite diverse within the categories. The game design and graphics are great, and the game moves quickly from question to question. The music is fun as well with different music for each category. Overall? A very enjoyable, high-quality game that has education and entertainment all wrapped up together!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Game for Non-Gamers
My girlfriend's favorite computer games are Pandora's Box and a shareware version of Pac-Man. She's also a big fan of Regis' Millionaire TV game show. When I wanted to buy her a present, I wasn't sure which between Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and this Trivial Pursuit game would be easy to for her to get in to without a lot of set-up. Turns out this was absolutely the best choice between the two. We love playing against each other, and with the 2,000 non-repeating questions (see the great review below) we don't have to worry about the problems all the reviewers of the Regis game seem to have. Not to mention that the questions are pretty tough, too-no Millionaire-like throw-aways. There are three different ways to play this Trivial Pursuit, depending on how long you want to play, and fans of You Don't Know Jack will love the option of having three friends compete at once. But YDKJ fans might miss the acerbic voice acting-Trivial Pursuit is a little hammy but keeps a comparatively straight face. Finally, I recommend doing a full install, since the game crashed a few times when reading from the disc. A big thank you to the reviewer below-since their comments made the choice so much easier. My non-gaming girlfriend is happy, so brownie-points for you and me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Graphics, very versitile, challenging questions fun
I had the old version of Trivial Pursuit and didn't like it. This one is a huge improvement. You can play alone, to beat your scores, or with friends or online. You can choose multiple choice or type in answers and the questions won't repeat till all 2000 have been asked. The graphics are very good on this game as well. It is a winner all around. ...

Amazon.com Review

After a brutal storm wrecks his ship, a bedraggled Robinson Crusoesuccessfully manages to drag himself ashore--he's the sole survivor and it'syour task to help him escape in this animated story CD-ROM.

From the start, Robinson Crusoe is a gripping game, brilliantly narratedby Martin Jarvis. It opens with stirring dramatic music as Crusoe talks of hisdesire to travel the oceans of the world despite the strong opposition of hisfather. Unfortunately, lightning strikes his ship, and from the moment you seeCrusoe arrive alone on the beach, you have to take on his role. Stranded aloneon the Island of Despair, you must keep your spirits up and carry out varioustasks to prevent yourself from starving or becoming the victim of a savage wildanimal.

Your first task is to get on board the shipwreck. Using your mouse button, youhave to collect all the pieces you need to build a raft, which will thenhopefully take you and the remaining food and water ashore. The scenes are veryatmospheric and well illustrated, and you even need to wait for a low tidebefore you head for the wreck.

This game comes with clear instructions on how to navigate through theadventure. By clicking on a book icon, you can find tools or objects to makelife on the island easier. When you hold down the mouse button, you can enjoypanoramic views of the island as if you were actually standing there. And, likeCrusoe, you have to constantly beware of the cannibals. --Justin Hunt ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Is this supposed to be fun?
If you are looking for a fun game to play with your kids, keep looking. My 8 year old and I could not navigate through the game even after reading the instructions several times. The play is not in 3D animation.

We're not quitters, so we read the same "book" in the story and wandered around the ship trying to pick up objects, but there is no place to keep an inventory and no way to "grab" the objects.

This game is not like Harry Potter or even Nancy Drew, where you can go different places or follow a path. Its based on a 2D drawing that doesn't "do" anything! It is frustrating, useless and not entertaining. Save your money, even if it's only $!

5-0 out of 5 stars A fun game
This game is fun because its not like normal games.You have to survive without your parents.The game is a lot of fun.You have to find food,shelter and water in order to play farther in the game. The graphics in this game are wonderful. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The Narration NEVER stops
This is one of the most annoying Princess games ever. It loads fine on my computer but when your in the game the narration is slow, obnoxious and never stops. 2 mins to explain each game! You can't by pass it! My child got this for Christmas was excited and now..hates it. She's 7 and thinks this is the stupidest game.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not truely XP compatible.
I also should have read the reviews on this however, my Daughter loves this game. I do not have the problems with sound or graphics as they are very clear on our system. However, my 4 year old now has to have Administrator rights on the system in order to play this game. I bought XP so I could allow the kids functionality on the computer without me hovering over them. I studied how to set the system up for limited users and Administrators (which can do everything), but now all that work and the money for the product are gone. I have made my complaint with Disney as they are the ones that informed me that they have no intention on changing this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars I should have read the reviews here first!
I purchased the game for my 4 year old daughter and was extremely disappointed in the quality. I should have read the reviews first as they sum up the CD-ROM perfectly. Slow to load, confusing, a mumbling narrator and terrible graphics. This is the first and last Disney CD-ROM that I will purchase. The Vivendi Universal games that distribute all of the Barbie titles could definitely teach Disney a thing or two about designing age appropriate, amazing software for kids. Don't waste your money on this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars mom of a 5 year old
This game is terrible. I have just purchased my computer and the game is so slow. A grown person can barely place the furniture much less my 5 year old. The introduction to the game and instructions are way to long for a childs attention span.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment!
We bought this cd for our 7-year-old daughter. The cd seems to slow down the speed of the drive so that it can't be installed at all. Nothing we try works, and our computer is only about a year old and surpasses all of the system requirements. We have never had this much trouble from a cd before. Overall, it has been a waste of money and time, not to mention a disappointment to a small girl who thought it looked fun. We expected more from a big money company like Disney to put out better quality products. This is our first Disney Interactive CD, and most definitely our last. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Game
This game is great and i think that the graphics are pretty good
but the only reason that i give it five stars is because on my computer i have expereianced many problems and then found that there are many people who have expereianced the same thing, i cant get mine to work any more but i do have C1 and C3 and they work great!!!!! if u go through any problems though you can go to their official site and they will help you by supplying you with patches and other stuff like that and if you go to a search engine, type in norn or C2 then you are going to be in for a heck of a lot of stuff:)

5-0 out of 5 stars Creatures 2: Lots of Fun !
I love Creatures so much that one reason I got a PC is because they stopped making updated versions for Macintosh ! LOL. Creatures 2 is a lot like the first version, except the world is much bigger, the norns look slightly different but are still cute as can be, and there are more types of norns, which is fun ! You can even convert your Creatures One Norns into Creatures 2 norns using the 'nornverter' in your Creatures 2 folder ! So if you had any favorite norns you can update them into this new 'world'. It's great relaxation caring for the norns, and it's great for kids I think, it uses the imagination. The norns reproduce but not visibly... you just hear Pop ! (while one norn walks near another) and an egg soon appears from which hatches a brand new norn. The grendel is the 'bad guy' but all he can do is spread germs or hit them, and he mostly stays underground by the volcano.

Creatures 2 has a lot of fun things with it, especially if you get the Deluxe version with Lifekit #1. Even a helicopter ! Watching the look on the Norns' faces when flying around in the helicopter is hilarious ! You can even click on 'view' to see what they are thinking about or seeing. It's fun to think that they are actually 'looking' at something -- sometimes it's offscreen and until you click on 'view' you wouldn't even have known they were eyeing a carrot or toy in the distance. Hard to explain but this game is really unique.

A lot of people online are obsessed by this game, and invent new things for it and everything. Net search on Norns to see what I mean ! There is even a Creatures newsgroup. Anyway Creatures 2 is even more fun than Creatures One. I didn't like Creatures 3 as much, for various reasons. But if you liked Creatures (One), you'll love this one also ! There are lots of additions and improvements. Night falls, weather and seasons change, norns can even drown; but there are safeguards against that (i.e. PUFFER FISH rescue !). Their facial expressions are priceless. And when a new little baby 'nornlet' hatches -- all I can say is, awww ! (The norns have life stages even, such as infant, youth, adult, and 'pensioner' and their gait, and appearance, change accordingly). Well, now, I'll let you search online and check it out for yourself ! Have fun !

5-0 out of 5 stars Creatures 2 reveiw
This is a really neat game, if you already have this game and are interested in games that have something in common there are also the creatures 1 and 3 series. They are equally as good, although I must admit, that creatures 3 has much better graphics and came out in November.( If your Looking for other interesting games, try myst ( pronounced Mist, but Spelled Myst) and It's sequel Riven, they are very interesting too! It's all about exploring an island, although you don't save furry little animals. Good Luck! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Congo drums beat out a feverish tattoo, someone just kidnapped Gary the snail, and your cursor is a spatula. Welcome to the world of SpongeBob SquarePants: Operation Krabby Patty, an underwater realm that manages to combine retro hawaiiana and watery weirdness into five games that vary slightly depending on whether you cause SpongeBob to get up on the right or the wrong side of his bed.

The five games are all basic "cruise around and get things or shoot things" activities, with that surreal SpongeBob touch. For example, you'll find yourself seeking hooks baited with chunks of cheese in "Who Cut the Cheese?" and assembling Krabby Patty sandwiches in "Invasion of the Patty Snatchers." Rounding up jellyfish is the aim of "Hide N' Go Jellyfishing," learning to navigate a little speedboat through a maze is the object of "Boating School 101," and "Save Me Money" involves firing a bubble cannon at ghost pirates to defend a pile of loot. One game must be mastered to move on to the next, and completion of each reveals a long cartoon sequence that advances one of the two plots.

In the "wrong side of the bed" scenario, the evil Plankton has captured SpongeBob's pet snail Gary, and our square-panted hero must accomplish random tasks (complete the games in a certain order) to rescue his mollusk friend. In the "right side of the bed" scenario, a robotic Mr. Krabs (invented by, yes, Plankton) has stolen the secret Krabby Patty recipe, and it's up to SpongeBob to foil the plot by playing the above-mentioned games, with different characters, in a different order. Basically, this is a device to pack in more animated sequences without developing a whole new set of games. Players eventually end up building a couple of short episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants that they can view from the main menu.

The games aren't challenging, but they have a certain wacky tropical charm, thanks entirely to the fact that they're set in the wet underworld this cartoon inhabits. Fans will find Patrick the starfish, Squidward, the Chum Bucket Restaurant--every invertebrate, tiki hut, and odd exclamation ("Oh, tartar sauce!!") that makes Bikini Bottom such an oddly memorable place. No age rating given; we recommend ages 8 and older. --Anne Erickson ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Spell BORING!
I played this at my friends house and she is 8 years old. She loves it and said it was the best game! So she begs me to play it. First of all there isn't really a challenge put to this game. Its really just a bunch of mini games that have no meaning to it. Although I didn't give it 1 star because There are 2 "mini" games that I adore! The boating school one and the who cut the cheese. But the rest are BORING! There really isn't a selection of "mini" games to choose from. It could just be that my friend was a hog and woulden't give her guest a turn. But from what I saw and the little I played it was boring. I do have Spongebob Battle for Bikini Bottom on my Playstation 2 and that is what I call a fun game! Get Battle for Bikini Bottom its way cooler!

3-0 out of 5 stars IT'S FUN FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
I play this game alot. It's pretty fun for children to play , but when you play it for a long time it starts to get kind of boreing. You start with not many mini games because in order to get more you have to get really high scores on the other mini games. I enjoy play operation krabby patty , but not so much that I could give it five or four stars. So I gave it three.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game for younger kids
If your kids (like mine) are getting to an age where they've outgrown all there Elmo and Teletubbies CD-Rom games, "Operation Krabby Patty" is a good step up.

There are 2 "sides" to this game (think A side, B side). Plankton is up to his old (and predictable) tricks again, trying to steal all the ingredients for a Krabby Patty. Your first mission is to use the "Robot Krabs" to retrieve patty items, avoiding jelly fish (they reduce your time allotment)and ants (-10 points). After you'v completed three levels, you move onto the next game. Each level must be completed before moving on to the next; help Spongebob pass his driving test to receive his boating license, catch jellyfish with Sandy and SB, ride the fishing lures to collect cheese with Patrick, and help Mr. Krabs by shooting would-be thieving pirates with bubbles in "Save Me Money!". Then, the "B" side offers the same games, it just switches aroung the characters playing it. With each level you complete, you can watch a little "movie"- that is, a 3 minute cartoon about Plankton's plot.

I've read other people's comments that this CD ruined their computer system, but ours was fine. The only complaint I have is that certain visuals that appeared for the first 5-6 games no longer show up now, which makes no sense. Also, if you have a joystick connected to your PC, remove it before playing OKP. When ours was plugged in, the spatula pointer kept floating to the top and was impossible to control. After we removed the joystick, it was fine. Fun game for younger kids, perhaps not challenging enough for teens.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok game...not sure if it's worth it.
A friend let my siblings and I borrow this game. I was so excited because SpongeBob is one of my fave shows! I started playing it and it was kinda fun, but then it got pretty boring. The levels were kinda hard to beat, even though I did beat one so far, and it was kinda zzzzzzzz after a while. I wouldn't recommend it, although some kids 10 and under may enjoy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sponge cleans things up.
As cartoons become more perverted, (adult oriented) it's refreshing to see sponge bob, safe for kids and quite funny. I loved cartoons as a kid, but cartoons seem to have become the domain of tacky adult entertainment of late. Rarely a gem in the rough like sponge bob on t.v., or Dewdboy.com on the internet can be found, but they are losing to the corporate sex industry.
We can do better for kids, people, support the good things, please! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as easy as it looks
This game is fun if you like a challenge but if you like something easier and fun you better exit this page and go and buy something like Dogz 4 or Catz4 because this game is not as easy as it looks. It's a great game with a lot of adventure and fun. But in my opinion you have to remember these four things 1. When you first start the game you have the option to bake a cake for your norns you can only bake a cake when you first open the game ( I haven't gotten the chance since they can never stay still) 2. Wherever the norms want to go you follow ( you'll know what I mean if you get the game)you don't get to what you want alot of times in the game if you can't agree on the same things. 3. If the norms don't get there way they'll get upset , angry or they will cry , depending on what kind of norm you have hatched. 4. In you creatures adventure's ( the one you get one you buy the game) guide under Feeding your norm it dayd " To feed your Norn, try to drop the food near it ; hopefully it will seee the food and want to know what it is. If the norn is hungry it will pick it up and eat it " IF IT DOES NOT SEE IT IT CAN BE VERY ANNOYING it will sit there and ask for food I try as much as possible to give it food and it willeither stand there crying or get angry. If it is raining it will get sick and you will have to go through the trouble of getting it better. If the norm does not see the food so repeats the process. If ALL OF THESE THINGS ANNOY YOU YOU SHOULD NOT GET THE GAME YOU THEN WOULD HAVE MADE A BIG MISTAKE. If these things don't annoy get the game !!! It's cool and there's alot to explore . Hope this review has helped you to descide to whether to purchase the item or not. BYE!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun but Simple
Creatures Adventures is so much fun to play! The norns are so cute! I do wish the game was a little more complicated. If you like simple and happy games, this game is for you. But if you like hard games that have lots of violance, don't buy this game. I would recommend it to kids 6-10.

5-0 out of 5 stars child's dream
This is a vertiual pet game and it is cute. It was bought for my seven year old daughter who absoulutly adores it. The game is simple and doesn't have alot of tecnical stuff to confuse her. The graffics of the world and the creatures are beyond compare. I do think We should get the expansion world though(Creatures Play Ground)mainly becausse the area of play is so small. But even alone it is a great game.

Worst Creaturest game..
This game isn't the best of Creatures. You can't teach norns to speak. There are no other species than norns(there were grendels and ettins in the another C-games) And, norns age too fast! They live only one game year! And you can have only 4 norns at a time...there's nothing exciting about the game...Well, I know that this game is meant to younger children(I'm 14), but still, this is a too dull version of Creatures games. The game has no actual story, like the other norn games had. There are not even any addons aviable for this in the net!
So, only 1 stars from me!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Creatures Adventures

3-0 out of 5 stars Boggle
Boggle is a cool game. You try to find words in a puzzle. It's kind of like a word search. It has awesome music that you can choose and neat graphics. You can choose from Battle, Classic, and Space Boggle. You can play by yourself or have up to 4 friends play with you. I like to play this game at home with my friends and family.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, two player stuff could be better
I really have fun with boggle. The only thing I wish was that it would have better games for two people to play. I still think it worth it and it can be fun as a solitary game.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun for Wordmeisters
I've had a lot of fun with this game, though admittedly, I have not used it for more than just solitary "Boggling". I started out playing Classic Boggle, and was having fun with that til I discovered "In Your Face Boggle"! This is infinitely more challenging, as the cubes are coming up at you as if they were in a well rising to the top, and you are looking down at them from the top. You form as many words as you can before any of them reach the very "top", thus timing you out. I have the most fun just trying to beat my own best score.

There are 3 other variations also, besides the two I've mentioned. I've tried them all, and each one is unique. Way beyond the "Boggle in a Box" that you've known for years!

This CD also allows you to play against other players remotely, by modem or network, though I have not tried that yet.

My biggest complaint about this game is the frequency with which it crashes. Now, that is an exercise in frustration! That being said, I would still buy it again though. I've had many hours of fun with it! ... Read more
