4-0 out of 5 stars Good game
I was a little worried about buying this for my 4yr old because of all the computer problems people have reported here, but it works just fine. My son loves everything Cat in the Hat, so he adores this game. Overall, a pleasant game. (The background music gets a little annoying, so that's why I gave it 4 stars.)

1-0 out of 5 stars Does Not Work
I installed this game on both of my computers. Both of them are new and far exceed the minimum requirements to run the game. The game will not run on either machine. I can install the program but the game will not start at all. Very disappointing for my 5 year old who was so excited and has been waiting forever to play this game. I sealed the box back up and returned it to WalMart, even though I didn't buy it there. I got store credit which was fine with me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cat in the Hat
The game Cat in the Hat has been a very challenging game for my 4 year old son. He has made it to level 6 and now he is stuck. I wish they gave you some game pointers for all the different aspects of the games. The area we are stuck on the the broiler room. (trying to get the crablock) My son loves this game and has had a great time playing it. We have experienced no crashes on our computer.

4-0 out of 5 stars No troubles at all...
The low ratings listed here, before myself ,are mostly based on the installation issues. However, i had not trouble one installing this. It ran beautifully and never crashed. It seems like their issues may be with their own computers. As far as the game itself is concerned, the gameplay is terrific for the 3-9 year old area. Beautiful Seussian landscapes follow you throughout the game while you 'Side-scroll' your way through a mostly 'Platform' style game. Overall, very nicely done. However, the cut scenes lack enough sound effects to fill strangely quiet times within the game. Mike Myers throws his two cents in, though it is mostly cut right out of the movie. Those points are not important enough to get in the way of the good points of the game. My 5 year old son is absorbed by this game. I actually enjoy it, myself. Truly, as this game lowers in price and the mediocre movie leaves our memory, this game will stand out as one of the better movie-based games made to date. Very enjoyable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cat to the Rescue
My husband bought this game for our 4 year old daughter's Christmas gift. She loves to play it, and actually goes to level 4 , with a little help from her father, by herself. Whenever she starts getting cranky, we always call on Cat's help, as she loves to play this game...She also loves it as she spends quality time playing with her father. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

RollerCoaster Tycoon will go down in history as one of the most popular games of all time. It lets novices have fun creating theme parks out of precreated objects and challenges more experienced players by letting them design their own wild rides. It was only a matter of time before both groups began clamoring for more, and Hasbro Interactive has answered those demands with the release of the Corkscrew Follies expansion pack.

Corkscrew Follies will keep fans of the original game busy for some time with over two dozen new and challenging scenarios, the inclusion of eight additional types of roller coasters to build, and new themes like Jungle that you can use to decorate your park. Minor additions such as new concessions stalls can be used both to generate extra revenue and to spice up the in-game graphics as visitors interact with the new objects. Follies also features new games such as miniature golf that you can use to entertain park guests.

There still is no option to build the park of your dreams with unlimited funds, but the cheat codes available on the Web will take care of that. Still, there are enough new thrills here that the few faults really don't add up to much. Fans of the original game will definitely want to step right up. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • New roller coaster types, games, and stalls
  • Scenarios are more challenging than ever
Cons:
  • Still no mode that lets players create the park of their dreams with no monetary worries

5-0 out of 5 stars roller coaster tycoon
This game is awesome!The first time i played it i was totally addicted!Icouldn't stop playing it ,it's my favorite computer game i ever played.The rides you can make are unbelieveable!You can make, roller coasters,water slides,go karts,graviton,bumper cars,and I can not name the rest of the rides there's so much of them.The best part is trying to beat your obbgective, some are easy and some are hard and even funner!The coolest part is building a huge park with tons of great rides and the custermers and the money kipes on rollin into your park.The only bad part is kiping your park clean,safe,under controle, and kiping it really fun.If you like simulating games you will love this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's like a whole other game
This expansion is more than an addition to the original Rollercoaster Tycoon game, it's like a whole other game. Besides the original features (see my review for RCT) this game includes 25 new scenarios, new roller coaster types, new attractions (rides, ride enhancements, stalls, and shops), new colors and painting techniques, new landscaping items, new landscaping themes, more entertainers, and more.

That may seem like a lot of new things, but it's less than it seems. That's why I gave it four stars. Another game: almost all of those things have to be earned in one way or another. Like you have to get the rest of the scenarios by starting with the first five new ones (like the original game), and you have to research the attractions, themes, entertainers, etc.

Another cool feature is that you can have almost all the rides play music. There are a lot of them too (like rock, techno, gentlle, horror...) and it really adds a lot of life to the park, to you and your guests. As a whole (the RCT and the expansion) this game is a sure winner. But Corkscrew Follies alone is not the best or the biggest expansion for RCT, but it's sure worth a hard-earned twenty bucks.

3-0 out of 5 stars This game is...
This game is honestly a good try but it sort of falls short. The rides are rather mediocre and even the new coasters aren't all that new or exciting. And this one came first. Three months later Loopy Landscapes was released and included this pack. If you bought this originally, before Loopy, than you'll be mad but they don't sell this by itself readily now. Your more likely to find The Loopy/Follies pack. Anyway.

The game plays just like the original RCT 1. This is the first expansion and takes a good stab, but really dosen't do exactly the best. The landscaping still looks blocky to me. The scenery is limited. I think the mechanics are very unnerving because they may be right outside of the ride they need to fix and they get called for it, wander the park aimlessely for about twenty minutes than finally return.

There's also a few new Gentle & Thrill rides, nothing to be excited over. Circus Show, etc.

I must admit that this is a good try. Probably worth a buy with the better Loopy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Game Ever!!!!
Rollercoaster Tycoon is the best game EVER. If you like to build stuff or just love Themeparks this is the game for you. You can custom build rollercoasters, car rides, or even Go Karts. You can paint your rides and give them your own names. The only thing I don't like about the game is that there is no night time and you can't make hotels and let your guests stay over night. Other than that it is the BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Simulated Games I've played!!
In my opinion, if you are thinking of buying Corkscrew Follies, you should. I think it has good graphics and sounds. The game never gets boring! There are so many different types of rollercoasters and desings are unlimited. You could build the rollercoaster of your dreams!

There could be a little more shops though, and different styles of bathrooms besides the same plain bathroom.

The scenarios can be a little challenging I have found. I think the ones where you have to get x amount of people in your park before october year 3 or so on to complete is easier than having to get a park value of 17k by then.

All in all, I think it is a pretty good game, I haven't played RCT2 so, all I know is that this is the best sim. game I've ever played! ... Read more

Each character has their own unique weapon, and the ability to pick up items, such as keys, weights, TNT, cherry bombs, plus more. As you progress, you get the oppertunaty to rescue squad members, and do missions. I like this game a lot. GO BUY IT! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Rediscover the fun of a treasured childhood board game with Clue: Murder at Boddy Mansion. With network play options and an animated "accusation screen" that incorporates your suspicions into an incriminating video, Clue is more mysterious and fun than ever.

There are two different ways to play: Classic and No Die Roll. Both include play with up to six human or computer opponents, three being the minimum. Computer players are offered to make up for missing challengers, and they can even play by themselves (which is almost worth it just to watch all the animated videos of the accused). Players must choose their character--Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard, Professor Green, and the rest from the original board game--receive the appropriate amount of cards dealt from ghostly hands, and step into Boddy Mansion.

The difference between the two types of gameplay lies in the title of No Die Roll. This version takes you beyond the dice of chance and provides a standard nine options for each turn. Be wary that some actions cost more options than others. Making a suggestion or taking a secret passage each costs three options, while steps to each room cost one.

The newfound enjoyment of the game lies in the graphics. You can view the board as a 3-D mansion, seeing the furniture, looking through the walls and the hidden passageways; or view it as the traditional playing board--which is not as snazzy, but is easier to navigate. Characters are well animated, whether they're walking through the mansion or displaying their prowess with candlesticks and ropes in the accusation screen (don't worry parents, it is more exciting than morbid). The only drawback in this new version is that you may have to ask your noncomputer opponents to close their eyes when you peek at your cards, but reverting to the pen and paper system won't hurt, and the game will be just as suspenseful as you remembered. --Madeleine Miller ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Complicated Clue
I really like this game, with all the fun features it is the best! I really like how it keeps the game quality but remains real! I love it. Although it would be only fun for kids 10 and older. It can be hard to understand at times but it is oh so much fun!!!!! Have a Clue of a Time!

3-0 out of 5 stars Clue is 3D!!
This clue game is fun but they could have done a better job. It is hard to move. I always get stuck on the corners. But there are some good things. It follows the game clue very well. The graffics are also great. At the sound of the game you would think you see someone murdering someone. This is not true. All you see is a person, holding [something]. Then you hear a scream. That's all.

5-0 out of 5 stars A spectacular Clue computer game finally made for the PC.
All Clue fans remember the debacle of the previous incarnation of Clue for the PC. This version more than makes up for the last version. Go to Hasbro Interactive's web site first to download a patch after installing this. The graphics are breathtaking, the music gets you in the mood immediately, giving the feel of an old-fashioned murder mystery movie (sometimes it almost feels like a movie too!) and never becomes annoying. Top-down view and angled view are two of many choices you have in customizing the game to your liking. Little mini-clips of your "suggestion" in action play as you make them, giving a small sense of "re-enactment" of the crime. Animated nuances such as wind-blown curtains, wind howling outside and clicking on various ornaments in the room make for some nice surprises. I don't get to play with my friends on the board game so playing on this CD version is a delight. Rich, full graphics, beautiful music, customizability and its strong adherence to Clue's game rules makes a fabulous game you'll want to play over and over.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Like When You Played It As A Kid...
The graphics and music for this game are excellent! I particulary like the fact that you have several different choices about how you play the game. You can choose the classic die roll version or a version in which every player gets the same # of moves. The computer will keep up with your checklist if you want it to. You can also choose to view the playing board two ways: like the standard board game or in 3-D. If you choose the 3-D version, be sure to make your character walk around in the rooms and touch the pictures, the pool table in the Billiard Room, the armor, etc. If you choose to view the game in the standard boardgame set-up, the secret passages are the little yellowish boxes. All-in-all, a fun game, but reading the directions before you start is helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars great game
I played this game with a relative of mine and we both love the graphics, jazz music, and the '20-'30 design on the page. It's easy to load and take the time to read the instructions carefully otherwise you have to start the game again just when it's getting good. I'm purchasing the game myself so that we can play via internet.We are clue lovers since way back. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A good starter
Very easy to figure out and use, the tools are basic but well chosen. It is showing its age and price range in a few places; only 32 tracks supported, audio not supported, quantize is either full or none (no percent quantize or beat quantization). The biggest reason I continue using it is because the "piano roll" display mode is capable of showing all tracks on the same representational keyboard. Wonderful for figuring out those interlocking horn parts. The biggest flaw (for me) is a poorly thought out and even more poorly documented patch naming system that forces me to go through screen after screen of unintuative choices if I change so much as one MIDI channel assignment on one piece in a session that week. I'd give it four stars, but the lack of audio makes it a poor contender in today's market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for writing music!

Amazon.com Review

Tiger, Kevin, Katy, and Grunter are the TKKG gang, a group of crime-solving British teenagers. Using their favorite gelati store as a base of operations, this intrepid quartet sifts through clues and examines suspects, all in service of bringing evildoers to justice. Their current mystery strikes close to home--someone is blackmailing Grunter's father, threatening to poison the chocolate his factory produces unless he pays out an enormous sum of money.

Deadly Chocolate allows players to join the TKKG gang, touring the young detectives through a number of sites in the city and gathering information about the crime. Coming face to face with all the prime suspects, as well as incidental and expert witnesses, players are given an opportunity to ask each individual one of two questions. Choosing questions carefully is key to advancing the story and unlocking the puzzle. Fortunately, each of the TKKG teens can visit a suspect individually, maximizing the opportunities to gather clues and critical data.

TKKG mystery games are aimed at players ages 8 and older who are interested in mysteries and enjoy having active play interrupted by medium-length animated sequences. Deadly Chocolate leans much closer to the interactive book end of the game spectrum than, say, the action-adventure end. There is a great deal of emphasis on the characters of the four young detectives, their relationships with the witnesses, and the unfolding blackmail story. Patience, observation skills, and deductive reasoning are the keys to saving the day.

Deadly Chocolate has educational moments too, giving players insight into the processes by which chocolates are made, as well as information about drugs and poisons. Its primary focus, though, is the same as the TKKG gang's--solving the crime.

Can you identify the blackmailer, or will he poison the chocolates and push Grunter's family over the brink to financial ruin? --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars So So for a Real Gamer
This WWI era plane sim is unbelivibly hard to control.The planes don't have rear gunners.Also, the game gets repeditive.On the good side it has good graphics for its time and realistic planes and iterface.Overall 3 Stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but needs improvements
This game is a good flight combat sim, but there are a few things thatcould be changed.First of all, it is very difficult to control the planeif you do not have a joystick.Second, it is also hard to get the enemyinto view in order to shoot him down.Overall, i thought this game to bemore frustrating than fun, and it also does not incorporate with the restof the Red Baron series.It tells you nothing of how to control the planewhich is difficult in the 1st place.Being a long time player of Red Barongames, my personal favorite is "Hunt for the Red Baron".You canfind it at www.fiendishgames.com and it is VERY VERY fun.Curse you RedBaron, however, is not at all worth the money and I do not recommend anyoneto waste their cash on it.Save yourself the frustration!Do not buy thisgame!

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Addictive!
This is a completely enjoyable game. There is nothing like taking a break from headache inducing homework for a quick game of Red Baron (though don't be surprised if a "quick game" turns into an hour!). If you clickonto this selection, buy it! You'll love it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

"This is more than a travelogue, more than a checklist of natural wonders," says Kwame Anthony Appiah in the introductory video to Microsoft Encarta Africana 2000. True, but what an understatement. What he and fellow scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. have created is an enormously rich interactive journey into the last 500 years of African cultures, both in Africa and around the world.

It's difficult to overstate how thorough and beautifully crafted this software is. The graphics are modern and inviting, and the inclusion of the Microsoft Research Organizer means that students can bookmark important areas to visit later (and cite them correctly). Certain aspects shine particularly strongly; the "Africana on Camera" section is one. For example, Maya Angelou, on video with an image overlay behind her shoulder, poetically and rhythmically explains the meaning of the word diaspora.

At the same time, the amount of information on these two CDs can be overwhelming, so we recommend clicking on the "Introduction" and "Tour This Product" options right after installation. This will be time well spent in knowing the goals the creators had for this software, and in how best to negotiate its vast offerings. You'll also want to rely heavily on the "Find" function, which is somewhat hidden in the upper left corner of every page. "Find" delivers a list of results, including mentions of a subject in magazine articles and placements--when you're searching for a person--of that person in a video or photograph.

Of course, not every element is equally successful. The time lines are somewhat static and contain little information, even when you click through to expand a given date. The music time line, in particular, seemed an afterthought of sorts and somewhat unbalanced. In over a century's worth of jazz, blues, rap, gospel, and vocals, only two women were pictured, and only one was identified within the captions (Bessie Smith was the unnamed figure, Lauryn Hill identified within the later years). The music time line also contained too few video clips; can a child really understand Jimi Hendrix without video or sound? In fact, the video clips were generally limited to interviews, little-known movies, and public-domain footage. Was this a way of managing the cost of such an all-encompassing project?

The incorporation of history and visual elements is stronger in the "Virtual Tour" option, where you can click on pinpoints in a 360-degree shot of a cityscape to get additional historical facts. For example, when you view the streets of Paris, a pop-up click option lets you learn about opera singer Jessye Norman's command performance in a French national celebration. Excellent narrated video tours let you learn cultural context while seeing sweeping vistas of the Slave Coast and Tombouctou.

While African-American culture is strongly represented, it is not at the expense of other nations and cultures. Africa itself--its geography, political developments, and cultural celebrations--has many showcases too. As Kofi Annan, secretary-general of the United Nations, outlines, Africana shows not only the place of "too much poverty [and] too many conflicts" but also a continent of "legendary cities and kingdoms." In addition, the cross-continental connections are some of the strongest narrative pieces found in this software. The barbarism of the transatlantic slave trade is strongly documented, as is the worldwide struggle ever since for human rights in the face of slavery.

Be prepared to be surprised by Encarta Africana. Whether it's a contemplative 1966 essay from James Baldwin in The Nation or an article explaining the complexity of theater in the Caribbean, Africana will have something to say. Filling a void too long neglected, Encarta Africana is a potent package of vivid life seen through the computer screen. --Jennifer Buckendorff ... Read more
