Mother Nature is lashing out again! Fisher Price Rescue Heroes: Lava Landslide takes Billy Blazes, Ariel Flyer, Sandy Beach, and the other Rescue Heroes on a mission to faraway Volcano Island, a nature preserve and tourist resort threatened by a coming eruption of fiery-hot lava!

The action starts out in space, where a broken satellite makes it impossible for the Rescue Heroes to properly assess Volcano Island's danger. Players ages 4 to 7 begin this game by retrieving lost satellite parts from the moon and then making the appropriate repairs. Only then can they see the extent of the coming volcanic activity, and the tourists and rain forest animals who need to be rescued from the island before time runs out.

Like other Rescue Heroes games, Lava Landslide offers a series of two-part activities, each featuring excitement and action but no violence. Players pilot various vehicles--from powered spacesuits to dune buggies--through a maze of obstacles, desired items, and power-ups. The vehicles are always on the edge of running out of power and ending the game, which is where the second activity comes in. Additional power-ups are available to players who complete a matching game or maze challenge hidden within each game level.

With a boisterous soundtrack and a limited range of activities, Lava Landslide is definitely a game that falls more on the arcade end of the software spectrum than on its educational side. It does have some shape identification and memory exercises, but this is primarily an offering for children who like their games loud, fast, and laced with comparatively simple obstacles. Racing along the beach, threading through collapsing lava caves, and hoping the next power-up comes along in time are the essence of this program.

Lava Landslide unfolds in linear fashion, like a story: you must fix the satellite before going on to the island, for example. It is a perfect choice for any young child who likes a beginning, middle, and end structure integrated into their gameplay.--Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars mediocre software for avid Rescue Heroes fans only
Meteors have hit the planet, resulting in a series of widely scattered emergencies that require the Rescue Heroes to intervene -- and they need your help!!

The graphics are good, the intro is exciting .... but after that the game is totally mediocre. Four activities have three levels of difficulty, but they are quite tedious no matter what level you play. (1) Move around a water maze to rescue people in a flooded movie studio, and shoot a life preserver over a moving line of floating objects. (2) Navigate a maze on a rock face as you rescue stranded climbers while avoiding vicious eagles and snakes. (3) Aim a hose at brush fires so you can find and rescue animals on an African preserve. (4) Snowboard down a ski slope without hitting the shrubbery so you can dig people out from under an avalanche.

The hype is here, but the games are very boring. Your child has little flexibility or independence when performing tasks, and those tasks probably use only 2% of your child's brain power. For example, in order to dig people out of the avalanche, you click on the snow cave over and over, it doesn't matter where, until the person trapped within tells you how great you are -- and every time it's the same person in the snow cave. Each game is rather mindless in this way. There is little reasoning required and no skills acquired.

This is lame software that has neither educational value nor excitement. When there are so many worthwhile children's software titles out there, don't waste your money or your child's time on this lazy stuff. It may be worthwhile for the truly avid Rescue Heroes fan, but even that is doubtful. This was our first Rescue Heroes title. It is also our last.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lava Landslide
I gave this game to my son as an early birthday present. He's almost four and loves the Rescue Heroes. The reviews I read were mixed so I decided to buy it anyway. I'm really glad I did. Sure it's challenging, but it's a good excuse for the parents to get involved. First I did the hard parts for him, to show him what needed to be done. Then I guided him through them and finally he ended up doing it all by himself. He was so proud when he accomplished the hard tasks that he couldn't do at first!

Unlike most computer games this one requires the use of the arrow keys instead of the mouse. Well, it's always nice to learn new skills.
I can't wait to give my son the two other RH games I baught for his birthday. I have no doubt he'll love them too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Inaginext Pirate Raider
I gave it a 1 because they did not have a 0, to give. I bought this game for my son and I try to install it and it tells me that it has encountered an error. I go to the web site and it tells me what to do with that error, but after I do what it told me it does the same error thing again. My son and I both got so frustrated and finally gave up. I am returning it to the place where I purchased it for a full refund. Good luck for those of you that also bought this Horrible Game.

1-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating game for my almost 5 yr. old
I agree with other reviews that the mouse clicking is very difficult. It's difficult to maneuver the men around. My son tried for a few minutes, became so frustrated, I finished the one mission, but couldn't get him to do any more. Would recommend the I Spy software - ages 6-10, but he loves it! Don't have to know how to read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Yeah Pirate Raider!
My 7-year-old LOVES this game. He'd play from sun up to sun down if I let him. I hear him cheering and clapping in the other room and he's having so much fun!
I'm VERY anti-violence, so when he got this game I was concerned. I was pleased to discover that although the ships sometimes fire on each other, no people are ever involved. This makes it so much more abstract and less about killing. When you capture forts, you fire on canons only and never see people. When you capture other ships, your knife is used only to chop up fruit that's thrown at you by skeletons. Once you capture their gold, you're on your way to fulfill another mission.
Frankly, this game is so much fun I have to admit to playing it myself! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Expensive, moderately fun and poor graphics
Disney continues to market games with graphics that would have been considered to be poor over 10 years ago. It's amazing to me how they can charge so much for such a terrible product. The only recent game that I've seen that was worse than this is Disney's Lilo & Stitch Trouble in Paradise!

5-0 out of 5 stars My daughter's favorite game!
Definitely one of the most entertaining games I've ever seen. My daughter loves this game- and we have many to compare...

3-0 out of 5 stars tinkerbell
I found that the this was quite a difficult game in a number of areas. All the games have to be completed to get to the end which gives you a lot of different games many with a similar theme. There are five areas each containing three games and five jewels to find, two of which are easy to spot, one is hidden and the last two you win in the games. You must have five jewels to complete the third game. The games vary in difficulty with the children finding that dropping the boulders on the boats hard as they drop them over the boat not understanding that you must drop the boulder well ahead of the boat otherwise it will miss as when you drop the boulder the boat is moving and the boulder has a long way to fall.
Catching shaddows is also hard as you have to get rid of the pirates and then run out of time.
Catching coconuts is also difficult as you have to realise that you must move closer to the trees in order to catch them and can therfore not see all the trees that the coconuts may be in.
Using the keyboard in the simon says game is quite difficult as it is not easy to remember the up and down keys.
Yet there are games the kids really enjoyed like catching the gems and lighting the lanterns
The graphics are poor as the people are not done very well yet the backgrounds are quite lovely.
I also found there was quite a buildup for the end as you get the map and then you go to that spot watch a short animation complete a single puzzle and the game is finished, it was very disappointing a quite a letdown.
The advantages are in the number of minigames available, the disappontments are in the difficulty in control in some of the minigames and in the rather abrumpt end. Not something I would recomend for a 5 year old as there are a number of minigames they would find frustrating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love This Game
This is a wonderful game to play. My 3 1/2 year old and my 6 year old have both played this game and they love it! It does take a parent's help, explanation, and guidance to get them started in the beginning on mastering the controls in order to fly. This being that almost all of the manuvers are made by utilizing various keys on the keyboard, not the mouse. They also need a parent's help with getting started on each of the various games, but once they get the nack of it...they have a ball! I, myself, have played this game and have had a blast! The graphics on this game are awesome and the games are a lot of fun too. After having this game in our household 6 months now, they have not yet become bored with it!

Discover Atlantis for yourself! The lost city may be sunk deep beneaththe ocean, but quick-witted explorers can unlock its secrets--and rescue Princess Kida--in the process. With Disney's Atlantis: The LostEmpire--The Lost Games, this vanished realm is within your grasp.

TheLost Games offers preschool gamers a choice of five activities, all thematically tied, naturally, to Disney's newest animated feature film. The simplest of these is Atlantis Captured, which allows players to viewand print images from the movie. A trio of transport-related games--Submergency Emergency, Unroadblock That! and Air Escapade--focus on simple arcade challenges in the sea, land, and air. Finally, Machine Arena allows you to construct customized attack vehicles and then pit them in a one-on-one smashup derby against either the computer or another player.

Thegames in this package are typical of Disney arcade-style games for young players, and share many of the same drawbacks. The ships in all but one of the vehicle-based activities are tiny and difficult to operate, a ready source of frustration for newer players. Children old and sophisticated enough to master their navigation, on the other hand, will find themselves driving through obstacle courses that are fundamentally repetitive and offer few surprises.

Machine Arena is a particulardisappointment. There are few customization options for the vehicles players are building. And when crunch time comes, the game shrinks your creation down to a minuscule size in the combat arena and then limits you to an overhead view of the carnage. After personalizing your own fighting machine, you can barely see it in action!

That is not to saythat The Lost Games is a lost cause. It features clean graphic design and appealing characters. The arcade games offer players a healthy number of levels that genuinely increase in difficulty. For users who have missed out on seeing similar games elsewhere, the activities may be enjoyable and fresh.

What's more--and perhaps most importantfor Disney fans--children intrigued by the movie will enjoy interacting with Audrey, Vinnie, Mrs. Packard, and Milo as they probe the depths of the lost oceanic empire. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars shortlived fun and frustrating
My kids got this for Christmas. While they enjoy it for very short periods of time, they also get frustrated easily and call for help especially my 6 year old. The comments made by the movie characters are cute the first couple times but after that they are annoying and you can't avoid them or stop them. As you progress through the game's higher levels the game changes so little it's boring. The longest they play is about 15 minutes maybe once a week and that's pushing it. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Kids run out before the timer does
This isn't the most exciting game in my kids' collection but it's probably worth the ten bucks. The games are about as good as flash games you'd find at Nick Jr. or PBSKids online: kind of fun but very repetitive. In fact, before we finished any of the 5 games, my kids were asking to move on to the next one.

Silly Songs with Robots is probably the best activity, although not really a game. It only has a handful of songs, though, so you're probably better off buying an audio CD.

The egg timer feature (lets parents set a time limit) is something I'd like to see in other games for children, but to tell the truth my kids were done before the 20 minutes were up.

I was amused by the game's attempts to console parents who might be concerned that one of the activities involves ramming a car into other players (one character says something like, "There are lots of ways to have fun without hurting anyone!") and another is a shooting game (again, something like "These are rubber darts so no one will get hurt!")

2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
I was disappointed. I had hoped this game would mean some of our son's computer time would teach him about the Bible and religion, but there's nothing really eduational or religion-oriented about this. It's just games, one of which is bumper cars (try to bump others) and one is target shooting, two activities that seem a little contrary to the morals I wanted encouraged. Also, the game is pretty short. It also requires a much better system than the minimum recommended - we have to play it on my computer instead of my son's. Still, it's fun to play and my son loves it.

5-0 out of 5 stars good game
This game is actually really good. It is a great game for young gamers with the basic controls (arrow keys, spacebar, enter). The graphics are great. It is awesome to young gamers that you get a certificate for beating a level. It is better than those Elmo games with no rewards. This is the best game I have ever seen for computer that is easy for young children. If it had more levels, it would be better. It would also be cool if you could explore other places on a certain level. It is great for older gamers too, because of the difficulty levels.

Amazon.com Review

A first-person shooter game for kids isn't a brand-new concept. But it'snew enough--and tricky to make--given many parents' concerns about violentgames. Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Trial by Fire is a prettysuccessful attempt to create a fun FPS that stays kid friendly.

Two games come on the CD-ROM: a short introductory game called Search for theJournal, and the longer main game, Trial by Fire. The introductorygame can also be downloaded from Disney's Web site if you're interested insampling before you buy.

Trial by Fire can be played solo or multiplayer online. The solo gameisn't all about shooting the bad guys--it features several short, challenginglevels that involve varied tasks such as exploring caves, solving ancientAtlantean puzzles, and racing against rising lava. Some levels were very hard,but not unbeatable.

Unfortunately, short describes the whole solo game. If you sit down and playhard, you'll be done in three or four hours, wanting more. That's when you'llprobably be ready for the multiplayer game.

In the online multiplayer game, you choose to play either capture the flag ortournament games ("tournament" appears to be parent-friendly code for "shoot theother team"). The boards are fairly simple, and players used to more complex FPSgames will probably get done with them quickly. Play is smooth however, and lagdidn't seem to be a problem on the GameSpy servers that the game steers youtoward.

If you (or your child) already enjoy faster-paced FPS games, such asQuake or Unreal, this might seem slow and simple by comparison.But for younger kids and parents concerned about gruesome violence, Trial byFire is fun and challenging, using all the characters and locations from themovie. It's a great intro to the first-person shooter style of games, and a goodfollow-up to the movie. --Jeff Quick ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A steady climb of gaming goodness, then it's over.
After finding this game hidden in the bowels of the local dollar store for a buck, I took a chance and got it. I got it home, had 2 hours of fun, and that was it. It was all gone. This game is fun, but extremely short and easy. The only hard part is in a tunnel full of giant ants threatening to destroy you. They are nothing. The level itself, however, is annoying and you have no way to mark your way. It took me a half hour to beat, which accounts for 25% of my play time. The game, after several bad... puzzle levels, gets good when you have to activate the four stone giants. These levels are fun and interesting, providing a refresing pace. After this, the fun goes away since you are met with a bad... ending. The graphics aren't bad, though they could have been better. Multiplayer is worthless, since nobody is ever on, and after winning the game, you won't play it again. 1 thumb up, 1 thumb down on this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars A GOOD GAME, BUT GETS BORING AFTER A WHILE
This game is fun for about an hour. The graphics are merely average.
The intro is dumb.

Level 2 is pretty easy,the only hard part is those stupid bridges. They're only a board! The second bridge does not break if you walk on the thin board; don't fall off!

I got stuck on level 3, but finally figured out how to pass it:AT THE FOURTH TUNNEL, GO DOWN CLOSE TO THE GROUND; JUST SO THAT YOU DON'T HIT IT,THEN STEER TO THE MIDDLE OF THE TUNNEL, KEEP GOING UNTIL YOU FLY THROUGH THE MIST, YOU ARE AT THE END OF THE LEVEL.

Level 4 is the hardest one; there are keepers everywhere!

Level 5 is sort of hard; to get talisman 1, you must enter the water room. There is a treasure chest under the bridge in the water, but it is useless. Don't waste your oxegen trying to get it to do something. Just grab the talisman and get out of there! The fire room is harder; go slow to avoid falling into the lava. The wind room is the easiest; nothing can hurt you.
The rock room is by far the hardest. You'll have to avoid the cracks in the ground that if you fall into you will die. This is one of the only places in the game where you'll have to use jumping. Note that each time you come out of a room, that number of Keepers will be waiting for you. Place all these talismans in the stone book (the thing in the center of the room) and the platform will move down. See the book? Just walk up to it and you'll have beaten the game.

3-0 out of 5 stars O.K
Atlantis was O.K But easy to bet. You have three levels of skill you can choose from easy, medium and hard but it's still not that hard to bet on hard. It's not much a chalange but still a fun game to play

5-0 out of 5 stars Atlantis was "Unsinkable"
This game was quite entertaining! I saw the movie and if you liked that youl love the game. Disney always seems to be coming up with new "Unsinkable" idea's. This game is great for all ages!

A decidedly low-tech era in U.S. history goes electronic in OregonTrail 5th Edition, a game for children ages nine and older that pits playersagainst all the hazards a wagon-train voyage can dish out. Following Captain JedFreedman and a trio of young pioneers out West, this program teaches history,map reading, geography, and a variety of other skills. Players must keep theirwits sharp if they want to keep their party healthy and well-fed all the wayacross the country.

Oregon Trail 5th Edition offers a good all-around workout in readingskills and problem solving. Using limited funds, players must equip theirwagons, balancing the need to survive on the trail with the necessity formoving quickly. Shortages will inevitably crop up along the way, and members ofthe wagon train can die of thirst, fever, snakebite, or many other perils... ifyou don't have the right equipment on hand to deal with the emergency. Even awell-equipped party can come to grief, though. Swamped wagons can lose criticalsupplies, and though there are people sprinkled along the trip who might providehelp or trade goods, happening on the right trade is by no means assured.

Except for being a bit slow-paced, Oregon Trail 5th Edition has fewflaws. The people aboard the wagon trains come from a variety of cultures.Though the game glosses over the ugliest aspects of this historical period, itdoes not skirt them entirely. Players who over-hunt the resources of aparticular native tribe are likely to hear about it. The game has a variety offeatures that flesh out the travel experience, like a trip diary and animatedcampfire tales--one of them about the Donner party--that effectively break upthe pace of play.

For children interested in a multifaceted educational challenge, OregonTrail makes a good choice, capturing the difficulties and dangers of thelong voyages that settlers made so long ago. (Ages 9 and older) --AlyxDellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not What I expected
I first bought this game because I used to play the first Oregon Trail for the Mac when I was in elementary school back in the late 80s. To be honest, they should have just stuck with the original version (without all the fancy pictures). The graphics did not match when changing from the main map to the cg scenes to the cartoon movies. It was very awkward looking. Often when cutting to a movie, the game will crash (I have Windows 2000, which the game supposedly is compatible with). The game crashes very often.

This game is difficult to use, with confusing and frustrating options (I've found 2 bugs already where you are stuck in an infinite loop). I DO NOT reccommend this game for young kids!! Not only is it awkward to play but it can become extremely tedious as well.

There were a few nice things in this version, you can fish and gather certain types of berries and herbs. However, when it comes to buying supplies, any child will be overwhelmed by its bartering system.

This game hardly has any of the old Oregon Trail charm that it used to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Solid Game
Wow, when the reviews I'd read said it was an update of Oregon Trail 2, they weren't kidding. It is almost exactly the same, with a few great updates (the fishing and gathering options, as well as the story of the Montgomery family). I really enjoy this game, and always have. I think they probably could have done a bit more improving on the old version 2, but I'll still play with great enjoyment very often.

1-0 out of 5 stars This was a rip off.
I've been playing OT since it's first version, back in the 80s. This is a slightly jazzed up COPY of version 2. IMO, version 3 far exceeds anything before or since. Version 2 is pretty good if you want a basic game (start to finish in an hour or so). Version 3 is great, with the addition of fishing, gathering, and player driven trading, along with the much better graphics. Version 4 consistently crashes on an incredibly powerful gaming computer system, which I use to run MMORPGs. There's no reason that such a basic game should be so incredibly unstable. I've never managed to get to Oregon with that game. It always crashes shortly after leaving Kansas. I was so pleased to see Version 5 on the shelf, and so incredibly irritated that I had wasted my money once I had loaded it!! The only difference between 2 and 5 is a different border frame around the picture, and the addition of the "story" of transporting the children to Oregon. Other than that, in all important ways (UI, graphics, trading, hunting, etc.), it is identical to Version 2. Don't waste your money on v5. Hunt down a used copy of v3. It's a much better way to spend your money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Game!
The Oregon Trail is no disappointment to people who want a challenging, fun game! The graphics are solid and the begginning is fun, but the middle is the best. If you want to relive the Sims mixed with problem solving geography, and also even history involved, this is the game for you. Highly reccomended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Compare 1 and 2 to this one
I have Oregon Trail 1, 2, and 5.

Version 1 was wicked boring and you could not treat anyone who got a disease. Plus u never made it to Oregon. It almost crashed my friends computer! (She has Windows 98) Plus the music was just...depressing. I recommend this for someone who ddoesnt mind losing all the time.

Version 2 crashed on my computer(I have Windows ME), and my friends computer. If it ever started, everyone would die like right away. And it played really creepy music when someone died. My sister cried and it gave me the shivers. Of course, you would never make it to Oregon or even Great Salt Lake City before you die or get fired. This one, maybe 14 and up?

Version 5 is the best. It was a lot more stable on both of our computers (mine and my friends) and was really fun. I could make it to Great Salt Lake City and Sacramento but not Oregon. It didn't crash, everyone would just die before you even got to Fort Hall. My younger brother could make it though. Ages 7-107. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun way to reinforce school skills
This is another solid entry in the ClueFinders line. I've used these titles with 3 kids so far, and we all love them. They strike a great balance - making the kids practice the skills they're learning in school, but in a fun way that they look forward to.

The format is really well thought-out. The mystery-adventure storyline draws the kids forward, the animation is good, and there are occasional extra "flourishes" (songs, jokes). The ancillary features (hints, auto-leveling) work well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a Batman Game that is educational and NOT violent!
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. However, once you have solved the game, that is it. It is the same everytime. My son's don't seem to mind though, they just play it over and over. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Trouble is afoot in the high mountains of the Masters of the Elements. One of these great beings, the Master of Chance, has lost his cat. As Time, Gravity, and Chance's other friends search for the wayward beast, their powers are leaking away and the natural order of things is falling apart. Unless you can find the cat and the Masters' lost rings, chaos will result.

Aimed at players ages 8 and older, Masters of the Elements is a first-person role-playing game devoted to teaching basic physics concepts through virtual experimentation. Players learn about gravity and force through a virtual juggling activity, attempt to recharge a battery that will run the Master of Time's toy train, and perform many other tasks in order to turn up the missing cat. Each small game offers a gentle lesson in the workings of the universe, one that helps in the larger quest.

This game requires an odd mix of arcade-style finesse and puzzle-solving skills. The clues to the science conundrums are all available for players to decode, but their solutions are subtle and implementing the experiments can take care, grace, and a lot of repetition. Mouse commands are sometimes on a hair-trigger--move a millimeter too far or shift a juggling pin too quickly, and the whole activity might collapse. This makes Masters of the Elements an excellent game for children who enjoy using the computer in the company of helpful parents.

The masters for whom the game is named are supreme rulers over Time, Gravity, Electricity, Warmth, Light, and Chance. They are also cheerfully drawn storybook characters with ample humor and appeal. This game never lectures players on the aspects of the concepts it teaches, yet still delivers applicable lessons in how the fundamental forces of nature work. What's more, the artwork is pleasantly unrealistic, stylized in a fashion that will please those tired of a harsher graphics aesthetic. Ultimately, these features make Masters of the Elements a terrific package for kids who enjoy solving problems and thinking independently. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

Product Description

Visit five different continents and brave the elements in The Wild Thornberrys: Rambler, an arcade-game series that takes players all over the world in pursuit of cheese munchies, stolen music, and a few juicy bugs.

Rambler gives players a chance to become the characters from the popular Nickelodeon show, The Wild Thornberrys. In the Arctic, you can play Eliza as she hops from ice floe to ice floe, dodging polar bears as she reunites lost baby animals with their parents. In South America, Darwin the monkey retrieves stolen cheese munchies from wild monkeys, trying to avoid becoming a snack for crocodiles in the process. African monkeys in this game are also kleptomaniacs--they've stolen Debbie's CD collection, and she must chase through the jungle to get them back! In Africa, Donnie eats his way through a bug-filled maze in a simplified version of Pac-Man, while Nigel faces off against an animal poacher named Kip O'Donnell in Australia.

Ardent fans of The Wild Thornberrys will find a lot to love in this game, which focuses on the characters, and features bright, cheerful animation. Other players, less interested in the show, may find fault with Rambler: its gameplay and soundtrack are both glitch-ridden, and many of the games lack humor and a true sense of challenge; they're too repetitive and don't increase in difficulty quickly enough to maintain player interest. What's more, the program's educational content is minimal. Still, if your child is just learning the basics of computer gaming and is a fan of The Wild Thornberrys, Rambler might be a good choice. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Tigger is the one Disney character that seems tailor-made for a computergame. From his chief mode of transport (bouncing) to his jocular can-do attitude("Collecting honey pots is what Tiggers do best!"), Disney game icons like BuzzLightyear could learn a thing or two from this peppy pouncer.

In Tigger's Honey Hunt, the mission is to guide Tigger through ninelevels within the Hundred Acre Wood on a quest for honey pots. Pooh needs thehoney pots in order to throw a party, which is a nice central premise: Tigger'stask is to be helpful, not blow up the enemy. A secondary goal is collectingsnapshots of Winnie the Pooh characters that float through the woods in order tobuild the pages of a photo album. As difficulty levels increase, thekeyboard-controlled Tigger must avoid everything from angry bees to falling rocks to thedreaded Heffalumps and Woozles. If Tigger gets frightened three times, the game isinterrupted, and Tigger backtracks to a checkpoint to regain his courage. Easiercourses must be mastered before moving on to harder ones.

Inspired touches include spider-web trampolines, a richly illustrated book-likeformat for moving within the program, and a dialog transcript that appears atthe bottom of the screen anytime Tigger interacts with one of the manycharacters along his path. It's a great way to sneak some reading practice intothe game, especially with some of the words Tigger concocts.

The program's weak spots are the initially inexplicable Classic Mini Games. Kidscan leave the main game behind and play Rabbit Says, Pooh Sticks, and Paper,Scissors, Stone. These games are designed for multiple players, which is whythey're unwieldy: A single player must use X, D, V, and C on the keyboard tonavigate her or his Pooh Stick as it drifts in a stream. Player number two mustuse number pad 4, 8, 6, and 5. And so forth. It's confusing enough for oneplayer, as these keying sequences aren't explained within the game. Lining upfour players along the keyboard would be an exercise in futility.

If you can avoid the Heffalumps and tolerate those clunky classic mini games,Tigger's Honey Hunt is an excellent romp through the woods. (Ages 5 andolder) --Anne Erickson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Loads of fun!
I find it difficult, but my kindergarten son really enjoys it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Adorable
I give this 4 stars because at times it is too hard for the suggested age group. Also, I had to reset my graphics accelerator according to Disney's Customer Support page which no child should be doing. I needed the hints to start level 4 and found the cave to get the "missing" honey pots. I liked the game enough to keep trying to find out why it wouldn't play and was not disappointed with the end results. Sadly, I am an adult learning to play computer games.

2-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating
I bought Tigger's Honey Hunt for my five-year-old son. I was quite disappointed in the game. The main part of the game, the Honey Hunt, really can't be classified as an adventure game (at least at the level at which we have been able to play it). There is no reasoning and no learning going on here. You bounce Tigger around a landscape and catch floating honey pots. I'll admit, the landscape animation and the way Tigger bounces are pretty cool (thus the two star rating). But it is quite frustrating to get to the end of a round and have Owl tell you that you did not collect enough honey pots, even though you thought you got them all!

The Mini Games are simultaneously too hard and too easy. The interface to them requires that you consult the manual, which I think is asking a bit much of a five-year-old. (Left is the X key, Down is C, Enter is F, etc. !?!) The games are designed to accommodate multiple players using only a keyboard, but I don't think most people would use these as multi-player games anyway. Once you figure out which keys to use, the games are too simplistic to be interesting. And even using the correct keys, it sometimes seems that the game does not respond to your keystrokes when it should. And it seems to have no mouse interface!

The animation is cool, but overall, a big disappointment.

1-0 out of 5 stars Compatablity nightmare
Being in the computer business, it is very seldom I can't something to run. Well this is one program I warn you to stay away from. After spending 2 hours, I went to the Disney website and found out, it has problems with many 3d graphics card. Read this carefully, if you have a Savage card this product does not work, if you have a SIS (most Compaq's) it does not work. I have 5 computers in my home and this worked on one. In addition the one computer that the graphics will work on, the game freezes. If we would have kept the box I would have returned this product for sure. We have purchased most of the Fisher Price games and we also have allot of Disney and this one is not worth the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tigger's honey hunt
I highly recomend this game. My son is 5 months old and he loves Tigger and the graphics of this game. We don't own the game but, my best friend does and I sat with my son in front of her computer and played the game with him. I have never seen him so excited about anything before except for food. So I do highly recomend this game. ... Read more
