4-0 out of 5 stars Wagons Ho!
Starcraft, Monkey Island, Medal of Honor, and Freelancer are exceptional games. Oregon Trail belongs among the great games. Oregon Trail II is great for the whole family. I think it would be a great game for teachers to show their students the difficulty the pioneers faced traversing from Illinois and Missouri to Utah and California. You will spend many hours figuring out how to start out as an artist and end up alive and wealthy in California. I suggest you start out as a banker first. Some will enjoy figuring out what medicines and other goods to take and others will enjoy hunting for meat on the trail and deciding which trails to take. I hope to see continued support of this game since my family has had it for years and we never tire of it. The best strategy is to take one of each essential item and then whatever else you can afford. It takes time to figure out what medicines are best for ailments. As for crossing rivers, if they are deep you better caulk the wagon, and if they are fast it is best to double team those horse. If you enjoyed this game you will love Oregon Trail 5. Good luck pioneer!

This is one of the greatest computer games I have ever played. I put it in good company with Monkey Island, Starcraft, Red Alert, Medal of Honor, and Battlefield 1942. These other games are more for adults or boys where Oregon Trail II is great for the whole family. The video is interesting but the game itself not only is fun but a great teaching tool.

5-0 out of 5 stars HOURS of fun!
This game is the best! You are the "captain" of a train of wagons going out west in the 1800's. You can pick a number of people to go with you and pick their names and ages (I usually did my friends' names or the names of famous people). On the journey you encounter storms, food shortages, sickness, and desicions such as: If a person dies-keep going or have a burial? Where and when to stop and rest? How to spend the money you are given and what to do when you run out? And more. Overall, a great game! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME!
Everyone talks about how bad it was, WELL I will tell you it is better than most current games TODAY!!! As far as errors, it works PERFECTLY for me! The game is fun, and does not need much knowledge to play! Super graphics during the time the game was made ( 1980's -90's). It was released on cd-rom about 1994.

All I have to say is: WONDERFUL, maybe not the sims, but just as GOOD!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Game Ever
It works great! Here's a helpful hint: pick the right season. I never did and I feel I payed a price for it. Also, learn a foreign language! It could help you out at Soda Rock.

1-0 out of 5 stars It just doesn't work
I had the same problem that [others have had]. I have not tried any of the newer versions but I am assuming with those, the restarting problem would be fixed.

4-0 out of 5 stars My favorite Game in Elementary School!
This was my favorite game in elementary school! I have the Version 2 which is a whole lot better! I recommend the version, similar game, alot more functions. Oregon Trail will ALWAYS be my favorite!

1-0 out of 5 stars CAUTION! NEED DOS 5.0 or higher!
Never got to play the game. After installing it on my Windows 95 machine, it kept giving me a message it needs to be run in DOS, and when it goes to DOS it says it needs a mouse and re-starts windows. MOST Windows 95 machines come with a DOS version 4 so be careful! If you have DOS 5.0 or higher, you may have better luck. It's a shame! I loved this game in Middle School! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game... maybe I got lucky?
I remember playing Oregon Trail as a girl in elementary school - recently I saw it here on Amazon.com and decided to get it, even after reading all of the negative customer reviews. Maybe I got lucky or something but there was absolutely nothing wrong with any of the software and everything loaded up and installed great. My computer's pretty new, too... I didn't have to go through the hassle of downgrading anything (I have Quick Time 4.0), like some people had complained about in their comments. I definitely recommend the game - brought back lots of memories, only with better graphics and easier game controls. And you can't beat Amazon's price. Awesome game!!

5-0 out of 5 stars oregon trail
it is a fun game for all ages for people who just want to have fun. it is also a good learning experience for all students learning about the oregon trail. it gives true accounts of how hard a journey the trail was. i give this game five stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so good.
I got this as a gift, because I loved playing Oregon Trail in grade school. This version, though having much prettier graphics, isn't nearly as fun. Half the fun of playing it was naming all the people after your family, and reading the dirty limericks people wrote on the gravestones. Save your money, don't buy this.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Classroom Favorite
My third graders study the Oregon Trail every year and enjoy playing this game. It is educational and exciting! Kids take a small party on a covered wagon trip from Independence, Missouri to Oregon. First, they buy everything they need, from oxen to bullets. They must provide their own food along the way (by hunting, trading, or buying at a fort) and are often faced with illness and even death. If someone does die, you can write their tombstone, and maybe see it on your next trip!

This game turns textbook learning into reality. It is hard to make it all the way to Oregon (Hint: it goes faster if you have a lot of oxen). But along the way, you will learn to take care of your party and to appreciate things like good water and good weather. I happily recommend this game to kids age 8-10.

4-0 out of 5 stars I love this game
I got this game for baby-sitting we loaded it on and the people did not work. We got with the technical support and they told us to got to broderbrund.com they told us how to get the people to work the only thing the didn't tell us was to totally delete the game when you are done with the process. Most people don't like this game true Oregon Trail 2 was the best yet with lots more trails to go on and such. There is some difficulties with this game but all in all it has only exited twice on me. It probably is just the peoples computer. Note the disapering people usally only happen with Windows. I also think that you should read the box that's says 10! and up seven year olds should not play this game enless they know the reason people got those illness's. This game is very educational and great for older kids. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Westward, ho! This is the charge of Oregon Trail II, the successor to the perennially popular pioneer survival game of the same name.Roughing it takes on a whole new meaning as players trek cross-country to lay claim to the undeveloped Old West, learning geography and history all the while. After selecting an initial profile for the travel leader and his or her group (occupation, names and ages of companions, type of wagon, destination, etc.), cyberpioneers must make crucial decisions from beginningto end to ensure a successful settlement: how much food, medicine, clothing,and artillery to buy at each trading post; when to hunt for wild game or barter with other pioneers; when to cross an icy river or wait out a bad storm.... One false move can mean the death of a fellow traveler or vital livestock, a loss of supplies, or debilitating illness-even the untimely endof an incomplete journey.

This dramatic adventure is not without its pitfalls: The accompanying graphics are unsophisticated (the talking townspeople and fellow sojourners suffer from "lip flap"), the sound effects aren't terribly inventive, and inexperienced players are ill equipped to make strategic decisions so important to the game. The trip across the Rockies isn't quick--players may start to feel they could have made the actual journey in less time than it takes to complete it virtually--and the three increasingly challenging levels of play designed to keep participation interesting don't do the trickfor long. But the skills to be learned along the way make these points easier to overlook. At the helm of this Western adventure, players sharpen decision-making and planning skills, learn to be responsible for others, andpick up loads of facts about the history and geography of the western UnitedStates. Whether an enhancement to a weekly American history lesson or a historically based alternative to The Sims, this trip westwill bring out the pioneer in everyone. (Ages 10 and older) --Leah Ball ...
