5-0 out of 5 stars Good product; lots of fun
My 7 year old just loves this game. He plays for hours at a time. It's a Movie Set Stunt Crash theme. You get a 'set' and then try to earn points with the most destructive crash. Once you earn the maximum for a particular Movie Set, you build up a 'crash' car. It took a few weeks for my son (and I) to learn all the Movie Sets, and progress through the different levels.

You can also download new Movie Sets from hotwheels.com, though I wish there were even more there! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Lame
This game is lame. I had no technical problems whatsoever, the game is simply boring. I agree with the other review that says it's hard to figure out what you are supposed to do. The game doesn't make any sense. It's counter intuitive - a very bad thing for a kid game. I got it as part of a suite of kids software, and I'm thankful that I didn't buy it separately. But, I have to live with the never-ending cycle of my 2 year old wanting to hear the song and see the characters (she cried until I load the CD) like it's a cartoon. Then, she gets frustrated and cries when she has no idea what to do. And, my 4 year old became almost immediately bored with the game when it's pointless nature became evident to her as well. She went back to the Scooby Doo mysteries (which are really good). I think I'm going to uninstall it and throw it in the garbage just to get away from it. It's that bad.

2-0 out of 5 stars Buggy and brief
My son loves Rolie Polie Olie and I really enjoy reading the books to him, but I've been pretty disappointed in this software title.

In short, consistent with what some others have reported, it just doesn't work very well. Despite my system meeting the minimum requirements easily, the software only works sporadically, and when it does it's often herky-jerky with pixelated graphics.

It's also not at all clear what you're supposed to do, which makes it a tough slog. But even once you've figured it out, there's just not much to it. When it's working, it looks cool, but the 3 or 4 games it contains aren't anything to get exciteed about.

I'm giving 2 stars only because my kid is an RPO fan and because of that has still managed to enjoy the game some. I suspect that won't last past the novelty.

1-0 out of 5 stars Slow, buggy and badly designed
The CD claims it works on 95/98/Me/XP. having XP I can tell it's _not_ true for XP. For starters, it will tell you "no disc inserted" unless you run the game as administrator. It defeats the purpose of creating accounts if your 2 year old son has to log on or run stuff as administrator. I can't understand why it's so slow on a 2.6Ghz computer with 1Gb of memory.
Then when you exit the game, your desktop colors become messed up. You need to log off and back on to retrieve correct colors.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent fun, a bit repetitive
My 3yr old really likes this game. I have spent several months taking him through the games and house since he didn't know how to use a mouse click yet. He recently picked it up and now uses the game on his own much to my relief. I still have to help him out since he sometimes gets stuck.
I find the scripts/lines that the characters say will overrun the other sounds that are being made and it can get very annoying at how many times it will repeat wanting you to play whichever game you are in the room for. It isn't clear, at least to me, that you have to play all 3 games before you can find Spot and activate the 4th game. I wish there were more games in the software. A bit limiting there.

1-0 out of 5 stars Messed Up My Computer ! !
After first loading and playing this awhile, the images got all fuzzy.
This problem was then passed on to anything my child tried to do on her computer - all games, even the opening screen.
The problem did not go away until I uninstalled Rolie.
My daughter loves the show but found the play value very disappointing.
The computer has a 333MHz Pentium, Windows 98 Plus, 128Mb ram, 1Gb available on hard drive, and an 8Mb graphics accelerator card - so well exceeds the system requirements called for by this game. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Hard Drive Eater
My Grandson, age 6, didn't like the load time, nor the grapics, and the slow loading and game resonse.
Beware this game claims to use 120 megabytes of your harddrive...That is just to load the game. After you play it a couple times (5x for my spawn) it creeps up exponentially! I removed it when it hit 5,419 MB. That's 5 gigabytes out of my 13 gig harddrive. Most games average 500 mb (ie spongebob,harry potter,etc. I could fit 11 of those games on this computer. The graphics are sickly compared to tying up resources.

3-0 out of 5 stars 3-D yeah right but still good!
First of all people. On the box it says that some of the game is in 3-D. Yeah right. When you put on the 3-D glasses it is not in 3-D. It does not even come out of the screen like in the real movie!
Well their is one 3-D PICTURE AND THAT'S IT! THE REST IS NOT EVEN IN 3-D!!!!!!!!
But oh well. The game is really chalenging. NOt FOR KIDS UNDER 9! OR EVEN HIGHER!!!!
It is still fun though. You play as Juni looking for his sister Carmen who is stuck in a video game. If you saw the movie then you will get this. If you didnot then forget it.
This game is really confusing and challenging. MABEY THAT'S WHY THERE ARE ONLY 3 LEVELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG, lol.
I was really hoping it would be in 3-D! But I guess that was a Big let down. I beat the game though. It was okay. Nothing special.

5-0 out of 5 stars Could be more....
This has a nice interface with very smooth gameplay. ... Installation was perfect. Also, i checked the system requirements on the bottom of the box and it clearly stated all requrements. ... I have had this game since day 3 of release and can tell you there is not one missing requirement on the box. It's all there. This game is great for everyone in the family and 'almost' follows the ideals of the movie. Also, you don't have to play it in 3d. However, that's what gives this game its' cheesy fun value. Good game with not quite enough to do. But, what there is to do, is worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars How about an actual review?
Hey slothmo,
This is a place for actual reviews not your rants about pc versus dedicated game boxes. I saw that the product got one star, and if I hadn't taken the time to read your ramblings I might not have purchased the game. Don't give something one star and have the nerve to not actually have used the title.
I'll send a real review after I've had a chance to play it on my SCREAMING FAST PC!

Amazon.com Review

Thomas and his friends are getting ready for a festival. They have to prepare the rides, sort the goods coming in for the event, and even catch up with some runaway cows before the festival can take place. What's more, they can't move a piston until they're cleaned up in the engine shop.

Thomas & Friends: The Great Festival Adventure offers a series of games to very young computer users starting from the age of 2. As Thomas, Harold, and the other trains and tractors prepare for the festival, they enlist player aid to do everything from keeping track of the number of passengers who can fit in a passenger car to conducting the festival band. Early sorting, color matching, and shape-recognition skills are given a workout in the process. The game also seeks to keep its young target audience engaged by including long animated sequences of Thomas going about his business, interacting with his various friends as he does.

This program makes an excellent introduction to educational computer gaming for kids and parents alike. With bright, simple graphics and easy-to-run activities, it is both simple to use and varied enough to maintain player interest. Thomas fans will be delighted with the opportunity to polish up and oil the various locomotives, and the animations will provoke laughter and delight among train-loving kids. The end result is a package that will please early learners immensely. (Ages 2 to 6) --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GRAPHICS, MOUSE MAY BE HARD TO CONTROL FOR TODDLERSS
I recently purchased this for my son who is 32 months, just a little over 2 1/2. He loved the festival car and loves playing with it since it is colored differetly than his other trains. There are a lot of good points to this CD. First, it really has great graphics and helps the kids to use their immaginations. Several days after playing with the CD, my son was oiling and washing Thomas and acting out many of the scenes from the CD. It also helps to teach matching, plus its just all around fun for Thomas fanatics like my son. But, it does have some problems. The graphics for the matching for cranky the crane are too small. You can hardly see them. My son knows all his shapes and colors, but had a hard time matching them during this activity. The shapes cranky picks up are very small. Also, the mouse control changes with different scenes and it is very confusing for little ones. I have to control the mouse most times, except during the tractor scenes. Despite this, it is very entertaining and if allowed my son would play with this 24 hours a day. I think it really has some good points. I bought it because my son loves anything Thomas so this really has been such fun for him. It can help teach colors etc, but mostly it is just good old fun. My son has so many learning toys and I thought he just needed some "good old fun".

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice graphics, unchallenging gameplay
This game is great to look at--the trains, fields, and other graphics are beutifully rendered, as are a few video "cut-scenes." The games themselves are not very challenging and left my Thomas-crazed four-year old bored after a few times through--but he still plays it once it a while to hear the music and watch the characters. Better for smaller kids.

2-0 out of 5 stars both too much and not enough
My 2 1/2 year old got this for Christmas and I want to make sure anyone that buys it for their toddler realizes that it is definitely "lapware," unless your toddler is already pretty adept at using the mouse. The changing cursor is somewhat confusing and hard for rookies to aim accurately. One difficulty is that it is used differently in the different areas of the game. For example, it steers Terrance the tractor without clicking in the cow chasing area, you don't click Harold to pick up the rocks in the rock fall area, but you do click Harold in the festival games area. This is not a good game to teach mouse use as a result, and does require assistance. I was not terribly excited about the skills taught in the games area, and felt that it was rushing through. For example, in the Cranky the crane area, the first level is supposed to be colors, the second, which looks identical, is color and shape, and the third is more complex wooden box shapes. I have no objection to the game promoting the advancement from easier to harder skills, but most pre-school games give more opportunities for practice before moving on. I also was irritated that the music game was not more obvious in the sounds each instrument played - it takes a keen ear to discern the banjo, for example, over the background music. My son loved the included train car and does enjoy the game - I'm the one with a problem with it. He is also used to being more independent with his games - for example, Fisher Price Toddler, and he can't be as independent with this one, which frustrates both of us.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor compatibility
Be careful. When they say Windows 95/98, they mean it. It doesn't run on Win2k. My son is very disappointed. He loves Thomas.

Other Hasbro games, including Barney, run well on win2k, so we expected this one to work as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome game for my 2 1/2 year old son.
We bought it yesterday. It was suppose to be a Christmas present but my son would not let go of the box. We put it in and he LOVES it. There are seven games but each game has 3 different ways to play it. I think it was worth it. PLUS there are ALOT of pages to print out for the little ones to color on. If your child is a Thomas fan this is a must! Plus he loved the free train car that came with it. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
This game is really boring. My son plays the Peter Pan game, along with others, and this game has him dropping packages into mail slots. You also don't see any monsters (at least I haven't seen any yet). Would not recommend this game at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars a MONSTER-oscity of MONSTER-liscious cool stuff
what a cool game. It was fun. I bought it initially for my daughter...she obvioulsy loved it- but then I sat down to play it too. There are 10 games inside - all start off pretty easy - but on the harder levels, its hard even for me.

My favorite is the flag-map game...its a hoot.

Of all the MONSTERS games out there....this is the one to buy -

Characters looks great - voices are great - its fun

so what are you doing??....stop reading this and BUY IT!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun game, good replay value...
Disney at least has a good idea behind "Monsters, Inc. Scream Team Training": an activity center including ten different games each with 30 levels of gameplay. The result is a fun and replay freindly game with only a few problems.

Even though there are 10 games, they are very different from each other. While many of them are somewhat repeatitive, most of them are quite fun, from a game in "The Lunch Room", to the "Tetrus"-style "Cannister Storage".

The best game in "Scream Team Training" is the "Door Vault". Players must help Sully jump across the many rows of swinging doors to rescue Boo! Entering doors will move Sully to another row, but he must watch out for that sneaky Randall Boggs. He'll also need to avoid falling "Toxic" socks, but if one of these gets on Randall, he can rush to the emergencey button to call the CDA!

Another great game is one that takes place in a parking lot. Players must carefully park cars in open spaces before time runs out. Some cars, such as ones for disabled monsters, need to go in special spaces, and parking a car in the red zone at the wrong time could cause serious trouble.

The other games are a mixed bag. While the "Day Care center" game is never as good as some of the others, "Paperwork" is surprisingly engaging, with players racing to staple colored paper in the correct order in a race against the clock!

On the whole, "Scream Team Training" is a fun game. After all, with 300 levels, it'll take a long time for this game to go back on the shelf.

5-0 out of 5 stars A lot of Fun!
My 4yr old niece received this for her birthday and loves it! For a computer toy, it really encourages creativity. It includes seasonal activities, birthday, tea party, decorating a room and many others. There are enough options that she will not accomplish the skill, then be bored with the game. Her favorites are decorating the birthday cake and then watching the candles light; and also with Halloween approaching she can decorate her own Jack O'Lantern. My 3 yr old is able to do many of the activities also. I would really recommend this as a fun computer game. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Fun simple game...
There is not too much interaction with the characters from the movie. The game begins with a fun clip with the characters and proceeds to a bumper pool game which Sully(invisible to the eye) narrates. He makes little comments about your shots and tells you whose turn it is. If you want a simple game of pool, go for it. If you want a game full of monsters, it might be disappointing. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Be Aware.
We recently purchased this software game for our children. They played & enjoyed it. The next day, when I went to boot up the PC, I had this error message waiting for me on the screen:

"ERROR: error loading explorer.exe
You MUST reinstall windows"

What a headache. I had no windows. I had no data. All was lost! I spent hours just trying to get the PC back to normal. I didn't know why or what had happened....until my daughter reinstalled this software again, so she could play it, and the exact same thing happened all over again.

A real bad glitch is in this software! Be careful & be aware that this could happen to your PC.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
I bought this game since I'm a big fan of pinball and a huge fan of the movie Lilo and Stitch. I loaded the game and it was entertaining for about 10 minutes. There are three levels of the same table, one for kids, adults and pinball wizards, which translates to easy, medium and tough difficulty levels. My disappointment with the game is it only contains one table and no content. I expected multiple levels or maybe even a cut sceen or two. This software title is extreemly lacking in development, content and is a disappointment from other Disney Interactive titles. This would have been better as a freebee of Disney's website or even an extra on the DVD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun
It's a fun little game that's easy to play. I bought this as a gift for my nephew and now that's all he talks about. I wish they bundled this with the movie because playing it makes you want to watch the movie all over again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value
Fun pinball game for parents and the kids. Several levels, lots of powerups and the characters are right out of the movie.

Santa gave this game to my 5 year old son. My son loves Batman, so this game was a perfect fit. The graphics are great and very entertaining. There is NO violence of any kind. In order to complete the entire game, you must solve several task which require listening, observation and thinking skills. There are 3 different levels to vary the difficulty of the challenges.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not So Good
This game was frustrating. Most of the missions were hard. The one I`m on is mission 9. And it`s so hard! When I completed the maze in mission 8, I thought running from Carnotaurs was going to be easy, but boy, I was wrong! Knocking away those rocks while running from those Cheetahs was hard enougth, but when I cleared them all away (I did that only twice), I had to make Aladar go up a ramp, knock down a pillar, go down and go up the other ramp, and knock down the other pillar to block the Carnotaurs. How is that possible? Another really hard one was mission 6. Running against the clock, dodging asteroids, and getting rid of that Quetzocoatlus( good thing you can kill him in one screech with a power stone) was extremly tough, and nearly as hard as mission 9!

Another thing was the violence. Not much gore, but you did hack up those enemies until they are dead and sometimes all bloody. The dying was pretty realistic( the Champsosaurus suffocates when he dies), and that`s not a compliment. Next, it is not based on the movie much. There is no Bruton in it, and most of the missions were not in the movie, either. And the enemies (Champsosaurus? Dryptosaurus? Quetzocoatlus?) were DEFINITLY not in the movie. I`ve seen the movie, believe me. Oh, and it`s a big space hog. I mean, almost 150 MB hard disk space for the space saver???!!! And you need a 3-D accelerated video card, unless you want bad graphics! I play it on my dad`s power machine (it`s an ME) instead of my own computer!

One of the good missions were 4&5. You had to play either the next mission or the one you just completed, so I had to start a new game usually, and play 1,2 & 3 to get to 4&5. Sometimes, the enviroments and music is a bit unfriendly. Unless your very experienced with action games, I wouldn`t reccomend it to you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Embark on a Prehistoric Adventure!
Another wonderful title from the folks at Disney Interactive. The Dinosaur Action Game combines outstanding graphics with voice talent from the film to provide a solid game experience. The ability to choose different protagonists greatly enhances the gameplay. I must admit that some of the game environments are a little dark (Toy Story 2 Action Game is more visually appealing), but if you're a fan of the film or of Disney Interactive games, this will be an excellent addition. ...

Amazon.com Review

Fight for control of the living room! Green army men are attacking the television right during cartoon hour, and only another toy--in this case a souped-up jet--can ensure the safety of the viewing family.

Put simply, Hot Wheels Jetz is a game that allows players to fly combat missions that pit toy against toy inside a simulated home. Taking off from a child's bedroom, players blow up rogue dump trucks and missile launchers, and attack blimps, tanks, and other hostiles. Along the way, they dodge couches and kitchen furniture, working ever closer to their targets and homing in on bonus rings. Flying through a ring can earn players a plane repair, a brace of missiles, or even new aircraft for use in later missions.

With only 10 missions in its gaming campaign, Hot Wheels Jetz is a game that adept flyers will finish quickly. It stresses simplicity over variety--the house never changes, and once gamers have the mechanics of flight worked out, the milieu is very forgiving. Hitting a wall or other impediment causes the plane to bounce rather than to crash outright, and targeting enemies does not require pinpoint accuracy so much as a willingness to expend lots of ammunition. In these respects, it makes an excellent game for kids interested in an introduction to combat flight simulators: it is easy to play and moderately paced. Even so, players already familiar with this type of game will find it too simple, and experienced pilots should look for their next combat fix elsewhere.

Flight simulator newbies and kids especially fond of action toy stories will enjoy Hot Wheels Jetz, though, with its combat-inside-the-home concept, clean graphics, and straightforward battle premises. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Jetz trouble
This game has a lot of potential for entertaining kids. However, I've had the same trouble as the other listings. We can never move on to another mission because the system always fails and I have to physically reboot time and time again! It's very frustrating for my 5 year old son who just loves the game. Too bad that THQ doesn't have much of a customer support program. Maybe they know the troubles and don't wish to accept responsibility.

1-0 out of 5 stars More installation problems
The earlier review had it right -- I also can't get this game to run, with the same symptoms he/she described. I have tried it on 2 different systems, Win98 and Win XP, with the same results. This is the only game so far that has failed to work on these systems.
There is no troubleshooting information provided with the product. Mattel's and THQ's web sites have absolutely NO support information for this game.

If/when I hear from THQ support (they predict a 2-business day turnaround for email support requests), I'll add another review.

Save your money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fly, fire, fun!
This game rocks. After a very simple installation, it ran quite well. Best when used with a Joystick, it takes a bit of getting used to as far as control goes, but once you have it down, it's a lot of fun! There could be more levels, but the free-fly mode lets you wander around shooting little army men, and you can go through the levels again and again. At the price, it's well worth the money, and I'm sure I'll keep coming back to play it again and again! (If you like Toy Commander, this is an exceptional game to satisfy your 'needs' on the PC!)

1-0 out of 5 stars Usual waste of time money and effort
This should be so simple: write a game for the Windows PC, make sure it works, sell it, provide basic support. THQ (the game authors) fail miserably at each step. The game attempts to run in 640x480 resolution (remember that?) and gets totally confused in the process, ending up with the screen settings and exit buttons hidden way off the screen and inaccessible. Being a poorly written application it does not allow the user to switch (escape?) out of it to another Windows application nor do a ctl-alt-del boot. No, THQ is special, they require a hard reset please if you dare leave their application. Finding nothing works is compounded by zero support on the web for this product (despite copious promises of such) and the usual minimal interest M-F 9-5 toll call phone support rings unanswered.

Avoid this game (Hot Wheels Stunt Driver is pretty lousy though that kind of worked) - but especially avoid amateur software house, THQ. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Driving on obstacle-strewn courses, crushing improbably large objectsunder your tires, and speeding up huge ramps in order to blast off into the airare just a few of the stunts you can perform in Tonka Monster Trucks.Along the way, players with a bent for vehicular destruction can not only smasheverything in their path, but also earn tokens that will help them build evenmore powerful vehicles.

Tonka Joe is the host as you enter the world of monster trucks, explaining yourplay options and offering advice to new drivers. Square jawed, deep voiced, andbrawny, he enthusiastically guides players through the complexities of getting adriver's license, customizing a vehicle, and learning to operate it--at maximumvelocity, naturally. Those players wishing to skip the preliminaries can getright behind the wheel, stunting, racing, and zooming around on freestylecourses. Every course comes with a hoard of screaming fans who evaluate driverperformance on a scale from one to five. Keep the crowd cheering, and you'resure to score big.

Though its software is a little prone to crashing and other glitches, TonkaMonster Trucks is otherwise a reasonably appealing game. It has three levelsof difficulty, and offers over 15 driving courses to big-truck aficionados. Aswith adult driving games, it takes some practice and finesse to operate theTonka trucks, a factor that will reward patient players. The tutorials arethorough and well designed, and the courses themselves are inventive, loadedwith items no real-life monster-truck operator could ever hope to crush, smash,or otherwise flatten.

A satisfyingly noisy soundtrack and the ability to leave muddy tire tracks allover the racecourse more than complete the gaming fun. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars LOADS of fun!
My son got this 2 1/2 months ago for his birthday and he LOVES it so much! He hasn't lost interest and plays it constantly! He loves the Tonka series and it was a great addition to our collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works with Digs N Rigs console! FUN FUN FUN!
Santa brought my 4yo this program for Christmas. It installed easily on Win98 and ran first time. I installed the whole disk to the hard drive hoping to improve performance. The program still does take about a minute between games to prepare itself. But this is understandable considering the incredible graphics and sound in the game.

Santa had previously brought the Tonka DigsNRigs game last year. I was hoping to use the control console from that with Monster Trucks. ...- however the software's printed manual inside the box says that it is compatible, but gives no instructions on how to make it work. The DigsNRigs console is not the default input device, the keyboard arrows are. The manual refers you to the readme file, which also gives no specifics.

DigsNRigs Solution: In the game itself, there is a building which lights up red when selected, called "Options." Click in there and you will see the setting for input device. Keyboard, DigsNRigs, or game controller can be used. I have not tried my Microsoft Game Controller with this game. Once selected, just "go back" and you are done. Digs and Rigs will now work well.

Problems: On my P3, 450MHz Gateway, 128MBRAM, W98SE, The program will freeze and lockup the PC if you try to exit gracefully. I have found that "End Task" (Ctrl+Alt+Del) works better, but is still not always effective in preventing a hard power off to recover. Using Win2000 or XP should solve this. Also, we frequently get a blue screen error message saying too many stacks, suggesting increasing the 'MinSPs' variable in System.ini. WIN98 System.ini does not have this variable to change! I added it at the bottom of the file and still got the error message, so that will require contacting the company for tech support. It happens after about 2 hours of solid play, so it is not a big problem.

The online help at the company's website seems helpful and thorough, but there were not specific solutions to these problems. I followed the guidelines they suggested to improve performance and prevent lockups in general (reduce video acceleration) with slight improvement.

Despite the fact that the game requires P2 250MHz with 30MB RAM, I am fairly sure that these problems would not occur on more modern PC than my P3, or while running an NT based OS, like W2K or XP. And so, based largely on the fun factor of this game for both my 4yo and 2yo, I have to say 4 stars. I am a computer professional, so an extra hour debugging this program is no big deal for me. If you are not computer savvy, you may not enjoy configuring this on your older computer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Program!
This program works great. Be advised though that it is VERY graphics intensive. If you have an old system, it won't run very well. We are running Windows XP on a P4 1.9Ghz and it hasn't skipped a beat. The graphics really are decent. My five year old loves to play it, and dad even sneaks in from time to time to blast the nitrous over a row of cars...

3-0 out of 5 stars tonka monster trucks
I liked the game and so does my son, but I was disappointed to find out that the dig and rigs playset does not work with the monster trucks.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nothing but trouble
We have all the other Tonka titles and have loved them all. However, this game has been nothing but trouble for me. I installed it on Win 98 where it ran once, nicely, enough to get my boys excited. It never ran again. Countless uninstall/reinstalls have not fixed the problem. It's dead to Win 98. No problem, I'll install it on my Win2000 machine. Wrong! The warning says this game was not designed for 2000. I ran it anyway and it starts but is choppy and unplayable (1.5 GHz machine). I hope Tonka goes back to their original software developer. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars My son loves it!
My 6 year old loves this game. We haven't bought the first one to compare this to, but I sometimes have to make him take a break from playing. There are a variety of cars and tracks to chose from, for many rainy days of fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Stunts!
If you like games with driving cars off of cliffs and into giant trash cans, or going off of ramps and doing front, back, and side-flips, then this game is your choice! Here's what I think:

Category------realism

Graphics 97%
Stunts 74% (that's what makes it so great!!)
Sound effects 100%
joystic compatability 45%
Gameplay 100%
Overall grade 100%

DO NOT use ANY kind of joystick for this game. You can't set the joystick sensitivity, and when you use it, your car turns WAY TO FAST! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Another great Disney action game
When we purchased the "Tarzan" DVD, there was a free demo of the PC game included. We figured our son was having so much fun with this, he wouldn't need the full version. Maybe he didn't, but I did! I got so addicted to this little teaser that I wanted the entire game. For under ten bucks, it's a steal.

Level one begins with Tarzan as a child. Gather bananas and other fruits to power up your "lives", throw coconuts to abolish dangerous animals, swing from vine to vine, collect the letters that spell "Tarzan", and "tree surf" (slide down a tree, duck under and hop over branches, collect tokens). For parents concerned with violence, the only possible objection might be that Tarzan (young and old version) carries a knife he can use to swipe at and abolish animals- the plus side is that once they're dead, they dissipate into a spray of butterflies. On level 8, Tarzan fights Sabor, the leopard that killed his family in the movie. Here, Tarzan uses a spear in a thrusting stab motion, and when he wins, Sabor merely runs off- I must stress that there is no blood or graphic violence. But if you're someone who's sensistive to even the implication of violence, you should know this before purchasing the game. We love it, and so does our son. Lots of fun stuff, even some more difficult challenges to keep your kids interested. A great pick.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good First Action Game
We picked this title up at a garage sale, and it is now my girl's favorite. I suspect more sophisticated gamers would scoff, but that isn't where we are at. We've only had more educational stuff like 3rd grade adventures and some lightweight activity centers like Toy Story. This game is pure fun - surfing down the trees, throwing dirt at animals that have the gall to get in the way, and 'ground pounding' to break into caves. Aside from start-up difficulties, there was none of this "Dad, I can't get this to work" so common with kid's titles.

We did have trouble on first trying to use it - the CD insert is simply wrong, and it is not at all obvious how to get to the online help. Deep in the online help you will find the actual keyboard mapping, and things start working much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Build it, Race it, then Blow it up!!
Tonka Raceway is a challenge, yet a 'blast' to play! I have 2 young girls, ages 4 & 5, and they enjoy selecting one of the Tonka vehicles - designing their own race course - racing on it - then blowing it all up & starting over from scratch!!

I say it is a challenge, as it makes kids really think while creating their own courses. You cannot build a course that a car couldn't race through - you must align the track correctly - and you can put in obstacles too! Of course if you make a mistake - just lay some dynamite down & blow it up!! There are 30 vehicles to choose from and 4 pre-designed courses; desert, jungle, countryside, and the frozen tundra, if you prefer not to build your own.

I recommend this to all parents of young kids - girls or boys. They'll spend hours building, racing and blowing it up!

4-0 out of 5 stars Tonka Raceway - 4 year old loves it!
I bought this for my 4 year old son. It is one of his favorites. He can design his own automobile, help customers at the service station, and even do crash tests for cars. There are other features of this game, but these are the ones he seems to enjoy the most. We couldn't figure out how the service station worked at first. We would go to the station and the attendant would scratch and look around, but nothing would happen. We finally figured out that while you are doing other activities in the program and hear a bell, then you go to the station because you have a customer. There you can change oil, fill up with gasoline, and other repairs. I would recommend this game for children between 3 and 8, although my 13 year old nephew enjoyed it for a little while himself. ...
