5-0 out of 5 stars Very fun and flexible
This was a blast for my 6 year-old niece. She was able to start using the basic functions right away, building castles with no help from us. With a tiny bit of help she learned how to move things around and color the castles. It really held her attention and she wanted to play with it again the next day. I like the fact that she can really grow with it, as she learns to use the 3-D aspects and move around the areas and explore the castles and use some of the learning functions. I was impressed with the amount of detail and accuracy in the castle pieces and variety of options involved. The program can be as simple or as complicated as the child wishes. Overall,we were both very pleased with the purchase.

4-0 out of 5 stars My kids loved this!
Believe it or not this program had sat in my collection for several months before we installed it! The kids have been fighting over the computer ever since. You can 'virtually' put together castles and you can then walk through both the inside and the outside. You can ALSO print out these castles and make them again out of paper. My children are 7, 8, and 10 and all of them have loved this program. On the computing side of things, the kids can easily wander the program on their own, it is very friendly. The reason for the four stars is that the instructions for the paper-version castles really need adult guidance. BUT, it turned out to be rewarding, quality time. Make the castles, get a green poster board as a piece of land and VOILA! your kids will have an awesome time. ... Read more

There is trouble in Townsville. Mojo Jojo has devised a terrible plan: he has successfully created robot clones of himself that contain knowledge from his own brain, and he has sent them into the streets and to the underground in Townsville to destroy the town. The clones, however, are capable of being overthrown. Help the Powerpuff girls capture and defeat the clones using learning power to unlock rewards by completing activities and collecting the clones' memory chips, and ultimately saving Townsville from Mojo Jojo's evil and villainous plans.

By completing the five learning activities, children will develop their math and reading skills, logic and problem-solving abilities, critical thinking and analysis skills, and their ability to follow directions. The CD-ROM is aimed at children ages 6 to 10, which covers a large range of abilities. To accommodate this range, five levels of difficulty have been built into the program. Progress is automatically remembered, and can be monitored. There are also printouts available: choose from 25 activities including crossword puzzles, colouring, word searches, and more. On hand throughout the learning and fun is Professor Utonium, who will provide help if necessary.

Let your children participate in Skyscraper Chaser (a high-altitude hopscotch), Letter Bugs (a street-cleaning exercise), and Zap the Map, (an exciting map-reading exercise) so they learn and have fun at the same time. Lively, fun, and modern, this package may appeal to young girls who find more traditional computer games less interesting, and it is a good way to involve them with the PC. --Susan Naylor, Amazon.co.uk ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Academic!
My four-year-old daughter loves the Powerpuff Girls but so far it has just been for entertainment purposes. I assumed this would just teach hand-eye coordination but I was wrong. This has plenty of action and hand-eye coordination fun, and then it also teaches north, south, east, west with map navigation and several other academic chunks as well. She is not yet finished playing it after about three hours so far and she is learning new material. It really teaches her--leaving me time to read a book without too many interruptions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good
I bought this product for my 5-year old daughter who loves the Powerpuff girls. She loved it and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had successfully blended drilling exercises in math and spelling with a truly fun and interactive game. The only drawback to this CD is that it's a bit limited with only 4 games but it is definitely still worth the money and will provide hours of fun for young children.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not so entertaining
My 5-year old doesn't spend the same amount of time on it as she does w/Reader Rabbit, Madeline, or Dr. Seuss. It doesn't offer a lot places to visit...Basically just 4 games and that's it.

5-0 out of 5 stars fun for kids
Both of my kids love "The Powerpuff Girls: Mojo's Clone Zone". I have a 4 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. It's their favorite computer game.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a surprise!
I thought this was going to be another mindless game, that would only hold my five year old's attention for a few seconds. But, this software has truly engaged my daughter in educational games and held her attention for hours, and has her coming back for more. The key WORD is "Educational". It's not just a game it is a learning tool. So if your child likes the "Power Puff Girls" and your want them to learn, I high suggest this software. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

"Thank you, thank you, Sam-I-Am! How we love Green Eggs and Ham!" Whether you prefer the straight read-aloud storybook or the silly games hidden throughout, your children will enjoy the software version of Dr. Seuss's classic Green Eggs and Ham as much as you enjoyed the book.

While Sam's story is best suited for toddlers and preschoolers, older siblings can still enjoy playing the included games for a time or two as well. Required mouse skills are basic, so even younger users should be able to play on their own. Clear, bright images are nearly identical to the original book illustrations, with the simple animations providing new excitement as the story builds to its "surprising" climax.

With Dr. Seuss's excellent combination of phonics and word repetition, your children will receive a great introduction to crucial early-reading skills. --Jill Lightner ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Green Eggs and Ham!
My 3.5 year old loves this game. It enabled him to master the mouse and now we leave him alone to play at his own pace and length of time. He constantly is calling me or my husband in to see some funny or fascinating tid-bit that is hidden in the picture. The memory game is his favorite and he's up to level 3! I now am looking into getting the Cat in the Hat for him.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Learning Tool!
My 2 1/2 year old son learned how to use the mouse by using this program. He loves the "Let Me Play" option. It keeps him entertained for a long time and is an alternative to watching TV. When we first got Green Eggs and Ham I even enjoyed playing with it for awhile. There are so many different things to click on that it could literally keep a kid entertained for hours (if they could sit still that long!) I highly recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars superb motivator
This was the third cd-rom my three year old son was exposed to, and for the last four weeks, far and away his favourite (first two were Thomas Festival Adventure and Blue's ABC). This is the CD-rom that taught him to use the mouse independently - to go to the next page at his own pace, after he had had his fill of seemingly endless repetition of favourite click points. He now spontaneously recites entire passages of the story, himself or to get us to do it in dialogue with him. He spends longish periods of time looking at the book, and then either asking to play again (sort of like the book looking is a preparation to the computer screen activity), or else comes to point out to me what happens on the computer when he clicks on X aspecct. The part I liked the best were the clever, non-disruptive additions that have been added to the original Suess text (the ending is especially humourous - won't give it away).

It doesn't matter what parents or educators think will be an engaging piece of software - the crunch is what the child wants to spend time with. This was worth every penny. The only quibble I have (and which made me withhold that last review star) was that it sometimes takes a long time in the "play" (as opposed to "read to me") mode for the child to be able to actually play. The program always goes through the whole text on that page before they can get down to business. This should be more of an option.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for toddlers!
My son (2 1/2) adores this game. He giggles out loud at the silly antics on the screen. He especially enjoys playing the rhyming game. I was surprised at how much he learned about rhyming in such a short period of time. My 5 year old daughter also enjoyed it, but once she played a couple of times she was done with it. I would highly recommend it for ages 2 - 4, but 5 is probably too old.

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.

AND ITS REALLY HER VOICE, SALEMS VOICE AND HER SISTERS VOICE.

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

Amazon.com Review

Though it may not appeal to many adult gamers, Disney's Toy Story 2 Action Game is a solid arcade game. The title combines the style and humor of the movie with 3-D platform-game elements you would normally find in a video game. In fact, the exact same game is also available for the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 game consoles, and its video-game roots are often clearly visible.

Players take control of Buzz Lightyear in his quest to rescue Woody from the evil clutches of Al, the toy collector. The game is played from a third-person perspective and is more like Super Mario 64 than Tomb Raider. Many of the 15 levels--most of which revolve around actual locations from the movie--are straightforward, but offer numerous bonus items and secret areas to explore. In order to make it through the entire game, Buzz has to perform many difficult jumps, climb trees, zap evil toys with his laser, and interact with all of his toy pals to get clues.

Much like the movie, the game's primary audience is kids (ages 8 and older); adults may tire of the arcade-style jumping and climbing action in short order. Still, for parents searching for a family-friendly computer game--and one that wonderfully re-creates the environments and characters of a great Disney movie--Toy Story 2 Action Game is a great bet. --Michael E. Ryan

Pros:

  • Includes video clips from the movie
  • Lots of fun for fans of the movie, especially kids
  • Good graphics
Cons:
  • Graphics are good, but they are not cutting-edge
  • May be too simplistic for older players

3-0 out of 5 stars Disney Toy Story 2 -Pc version
The 3 D action is similar to other games of the same genre, e.g croc and croc2, except the play area is much larger. Better graphics than Mario 3D, by far. Bright color schemes are top notch. Play is initially difficult, but improves as one learns what is improtant and what is not.

Some small annoyances:

1) 3D rendering is not done as well as in other games: Edges appear in walls, and far obects are partially rendered until you get close to them

2) Non-standard controller movement for reverse. In the game the main character does not back up, but instead turns around when the down arrow is pressed, and then the viewpoint then rotates behind the player. Very annoying when one just wants to move back a slight bit. This is very non-standard as all other 3d games just have the character backup slightly when the reverse button is pressed.

3) The gamepad direction movement is coarse. Hard to line up the player for a specfic jump using the buttonpad or joystick. Luckily, there are additional keys on the gamepad to allow you to rotate slightly to the left or the right. I've switched to using these buttons for turning around rather than the reverse button as the change in perspective (see above) is annoying.

4) Documentation/menu selection is negligible. This is the worst part of the game. There is apparently no way to pull up a menu to charge computer game settings. It's also not clear how to save the game; many times the only way to exit the game was to reboot the computer. The documentation supplied with the game is useless in this regards; it says to press the `start' button' which does not do anything. A series of pop-up menus linked to the ESC key is definitely missing here, and is a fatal flaw in the program.

Overall the idea is good, the game is enjoyable, the play situation and puzzles are intersting and challenging, but not excessively difficult to make it impossible for younger players. The main problem with the game that not enough attention has been paid to the details of game management and the interface to the rest of Windows. Perhaps this was just automatically translated from the playstation by a computer program, where one doesn't really care if one just hits the system reset button to exit the game. This game type of programming is about 10 years behind the times, and really shouldn't be have to be tolerated by windows game users anymore.

4-0 out of 5 stars Programming for Playstation doesn't play well on PC
This is a great looking game with beautiful colors, graphics, and backgrounds. The levels are challenging and extensive. Our favorite Toy Story characters are all here (although Woody doesn't show up until near the end). The puzzles vary in difficulty from kindergarten to adult.

The problem with the PC version is it's extreme awkwardness to control. The controls operate relative to where the character is, not the angle the the player is watching from. With a constantly adjusting camera angle, this makes for difficult navigation. Another tricky thing is the 3-D rendering. Most objects aren't visable until you are right next to them, which made finding them difficult.

This game is suggested for ages 8 and up. Some of the puzzles are appropriate for this age group, but I can't imagine an 8-year old getting past some of the levels. Some of the "missions" are so difficult that even an adult has to try them over and over and over to finish them. (Perhaps this is a plus for adults, though?)

Although this game was hard to get used to in terms of maneuvering (one never does "get used" to it exactly), and it was obviously created for use on a game system, and not on PC, it was a great-looking game with plenty of challenge to keep even adults busy for days. The bonus movies are a treat, and the hilarious clips make you WISH the movie was out on DVD already.

5-0 out of 5 stars an ok game
toy story 2 is ok but it's kind of hard for me.
i'm still stuck on alleys and gulleys!

4-0 out of 5 stars Made for PlayStation, not PC
I saw one review here that said" buzz is extremly hard to control" and "I can't see an 8 year old getting past it." I agree! Buzz IS extremly hard to control, it's probably easier on a PlayStation, and I'm 13 and this game is even hard for ME! I usually get used to a new game in no time, but this was real hard.
Other than that, pleasant music, good graphics and fun levels. Get it if you like unbelivably hard games.
Oh, PS. I noticed most of you give it one star because"it keeps shutting down". IT'S NOT THE GAME! IT'S YOUR COMPUTER! You need to update it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Same as the N64 game
I bought this at a 'going out of business' sale at a local store. My kids were about to upgrade to Gamecube and this was one of the games they didn't want to lose, but would. I was pleasantly suprised that this is the exact same game! I was only hoping to kind of fill the gap, not completely! It is difficult to play on the computer without a gamepad controller though, not a big deal. ... Read more

Rugrats Munchiin Land rules! I love the Rugrats episode No Place Like Home which is the Rugrats' way of telling the story The Wizard of OZ. Susie is sick in the hospital. While her tonsils get removed, she dreams a story like The Wizard of OZ. That's an episode summary. Here's a game summary. The kids are at the park. Anjelica starts spinning them really fast. Then, in her spinning the force pulls her on too. Tommy asks,"Anjelica, if your'e not pushing us, who is?" Suddenly the merry-go-round flies up in the sky and falls in the land of Odd.... This is the perfect fun for anyone.

Younger children can find learning through multimedia softwaredifficult, but ClueFinders 4th Grade Adventures wraps its educationalmaterial up in an adventure game, the idea being that you hardly notice theeducational parts. To that end, our clue-finding heroes get into all sorts ofscrapes during their adventures. In this CD-ROM they--and Socrates the dog--findthemselves on an archaeological dig in Egypt. While there, they discover an evilarchaeologist's plot to unleash chaos on the world. Needless to say, theClueFinders set out to foil his plans.

ClueFinders 4th Grade Adventures incorporates challenges that test skillsin logical thinking, math, science, geography, and language. There is a documentfor parents explaining how these skills are addressed in each of the activities,and the effects achieved by switching between the four difficulty levels in eachof them.

A bonus CD, the ClueFinders Adventure Kit, comes with ClueFinders 4th GradeAdventures, offering various fun activities, such as an adventure logbookwith which to record your own escapades. --Sandra Vogel ... Read more

This is a great software! I bought this in June 2000. I didn't get some of it. Now I got older and smarter. And understand this better! The location is better. Egypt is very ancient. I also did these other ClueFinders software, 3rd Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade, Math, Reading, Search & Solve, Incredible Toy Store Adventure!, and the second CD-Rom Mystery Mansion Arcade!
And I'm not even in 4th, 5th or 6th.

5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun you forget you're learning!
This is a great program. I got it for my 3rd grade daughter and we both thought it was a lot of fun. It covers areas such as fractions, logic, sentence structure and geography. You have to collect different items that let you progress through the games. This is all done by completing the various puzzles and activities. The game progresses like an adventure story. You have to complete one activity before having the option to go on to others. She used the various JumpStart and Reader Rabbit programs when she was younger, and I wanted something fun to teach those basic skills now that she's older. This is JUST what I was looking for. We both highly recommend this series!

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.

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 Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!
I bought this game for my 4 year old and he loves it! It's his first game and I was afraid that it might be too hard for him. As it turns out, he really likes the game and does pretty good with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars STOP!!!!!
This game is very easy and BORING!! I don't recommend this game for anyone!! Don't waist your money on this, you might as well just sell it at a yard-sale for all it's worth!! Save your money for a better game! Trust me it stinks horribly!!!

(BOO HISS)

4-0 out of 5 stars good game
I rented this game at movie gallery and it was preety good the plot is great the graphics are great and te reason I gave it four stars the control is very slugish, but I really do encourage you to rent it first and go to the password and put jjww to get to the last level

4-0 out of 5 stars A fun game for small children!
My 5 year old has this game...he loves it. It's perfect for him. There are a lot of games out there that are too hard for a kid his age, but Toy Story 2 is great! If you have a young child, this game is perfect! But for the older ones...it may be just a bit too easy.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sub-Par graphics and hard controls make this not a fun game!
Ok, i rented this game a while ago and im glad i didnt buy it. The world Buzz was in was too large, making him too small and he seemed drowned. Also, it was very difficult to get him to move the right way. The premise is good and the levels ok, but its the movment that really kills it, causing A LOT of frustration... ... Read more
