5-0 out of 5 stars Can teach a 6 year old to type!!!
I bought this as a gift for my six year old who wanted to learn to type on the computer, tried other products at the library and the librarian recommended this one. I installed this easily on an old pentium 166 running Windows 98. It runs better than most kids software. It does have some issues with typing too fast or too slow but frankly I think it helps you place your fingers cleanly and accurately.

The GREAT thing about this program is that my six year old loves it and it is teaching him good typing skills. The graphics are very interactive, if you mistype the characters (called bladers) perform comparable to your performance. The different events, cones, cow jumping (a real hoot), half pipe, sidewalk and speed skating concentrate on different typing skills. You jump more cows and do more flips over them if you are more accurate in that event. The sidewalk event requires both speed and accuracy and is definitely a challenge. The skater skates along as words are displayed for your to type. One mistake and he runs into an obstacle and flys to fall flat on his face. The graphics are redundent but it motivates the heck out of my six year old.

If you are older and too computer savvy you may not like this. Particularly if you can already type. (Though I could see how using it would improve my skills). For kids just learning to type it makes a very boring (remember high school typing class, before computers, for those readers over 30)really a lot of fun.

Teenaged kids who watch too much TV and play ultra action type video games will also find this pretty mundane. But they really should learn good typing skills anyway and this would help them.

1-0 out of 5 stars Non-functional, out-of-date software
Marketing gives the impression that this is a 3D interactive, when in fact it is not. After the interactions occur, and sometimes during, you are shown a canned quicktime movie. Same movie may be shown over and over and over...

Any program that requires Windows users to back off of Quicktime 6 and install 2.5 from the CD-ROM is useless.

Tried it on our Mac also and found that if you type too fast, it misses your keystrokes, and counts the stroke as an error! If you type too soon, even after the visual prompt is displayed, it misses the keystroke.

Distracting visuals and too great a visual reliance on the keyboard chart at the expense of the source text hinders learning. IF you make a single mistake, you lose and have to start over.

This program may have functioned well in its day (though I don't see how that could be), but it is out-of-date, in addition to being very poorly designed.

STAY AWAY!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than Physicus, But...
My wife and I are avid adventure gamers and, to help pass the time until "URU: Ages Beyond Myst" is released later this year, we decided to try "Chemicus". We played "Physicus" a couple years ago and, while we enjoyed it, we both thought that it could have been a much better game if it had tied into Physics a little deeper and if more effort was put into the adventure game design (look for my earlier review).

We just completed "Chemicus" and I can honestly say that this was a MUCH better overall attempt. Nearly all of the puzzles of the game are chemistry-related ranging from the fairly easy and logical to the pretty hard and requiring a hint or two (we peeked into the included walkthrough only a couple of times to get us unstuck).

The greatest improvement over "Physicus", however, was on the game design side. Like "Physicus" the graphics and music are lush and inviting. But, the scope of the game is where "Chemicus" shines over its predecessor. "Physicus" was just a singular environment or location to explore with very few cut-scenes and conveyances to enjoy along the way; both popular elements to a successful adventure game. In "Chemicus", even though the "subway" system was a little on the cheesy and repetitive side, at least it felt like we were transporting between unique locations (thank goodness the space bar forwards you through the animations). Plus, after solving some particularly difficult puzzles, we were rewarded with some nice cut-scenes; the balloon ride over the city being the best one. It wasn't on the same level as the bigger games like Riven and Schizm, but still an improvement.

One thing that "Physicus" did get right and that "Chemicus" fails on, is its link into the "Brain Center", the included chemistry text book. The content of the chemistry text is impressive, although, it looks as if the inclusion of animation and narration of some of the experiments and topics went by the wayside probably due to the added scope of the underlying game. What really annoyed us was the fact that we couldn't follow a link from the particular puzzle we were working on into the appropriate chapters or topics of the textbook. Along the way, you pick up "Knowledge Chips" that add chapters to your Brain Center and I suppose, if you kept up with the reading along the way, the new topics would relate to the new puzzles in the area. But, later on, when we were still working on the puzzle, it was very difficult to find those same topics in the textbook again. Like "Physicus", a link to just the appropriate topics would have been very useful.

Other than that, the game was very well written and designed. The user interface was very intuitive and easy to use. Could have done without the gratuitous, politically-correct diatribes on "greenhouse gasses" and "socially responsible science" that we have come to expect in these games (easy to ignore, though). We just started on "Bioscopia", but it looks as if that one more closely resembles "Physicus" in design and scope, bummer. I hear they are working on a "Chemicus II" game, so once we finish with URU, we will probably give it a go, too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Education and confusion come together in Chemicus
Okay, okay, I had fun. But I was also incredibly frustrated by the set up and "logic" (or I should say lack of logic) of this game and that truly detracted from my enjoyment. I wanted to learn something from this game, but I didn't get the connections half the time!
This game has so much potential for teaching chemistry, but the set up was lacking logic - you don't know what you are supposed to be doing, and you have to go back and forth between the various "stops", never knowing if you have really done what needs to be done. And because you have to go back and forth so much, you have to wait for each area to load when you go to another stop. I tried skipping the animation of the transport zooming through the tube, but it still took a long time for the stop to load. And you want to scream when you click on the wrong button and have to wait twice!!
One example of frustration for us is that you have to melt the ingredients for solder someplace other than the melting furnace before you put it into the melting furnace... How does that make sense? The logic behind why some ingredients are placed in certain places is very foggy, and sometimes you just don't have enough (understandable) information to figure something out, or the information is there but so obscure that you have to be a rocket scientist to understand it.
So you look for help, and all you are given is a walkthrough, when hints would be so much better... and would help you learn why you are doing things. I have thought of making my own hints to pass on to someone who would like to learn something from the game.
I ran Chemicus on a mac running OSX. It had to run on classic, so there were many times when it lagged. Don't know how it runs on a PC.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for edutainment!
This is great game but it is NOT easily solved. It has Myst like elements where you find puzzles and solve them to move around. The game has a twist where you keep an inventory of items you will need in other areas of the game. The hints that came with the game were helpful..I hated to use them but after getting stuck and not making progress after a few hours I had to take a quick peek to continue. At first I thought it was too easy but then it got hard. If anyone writes otherwise they are not being truthful. I took many chem classes in college and not everything is intuitive in the game. Infact, sometimes you know what to do but the game only lets you do things in order to perform a task and you think that you are wrong (but you're not). You only switch CD's once ever and then you are done. I copied the help file to my computer so I would not have to reference it off of the disk. The only part I did not like was the navigation. If it had not been for that I would have given it 5 stars. . All in all I have zero regrets getting this game. I had just finished playing Myst III and I wanted another same type game. great buy

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Challenging and Quite Lovely
Your friend, Richard, a Chemistry buff, has discovered a strange amulet that, combined with certain experiments, allows him access to another dimension. You are supposed to meet with him to discuss his findings, but discover he has disappeared. It seems the denizens of this other dimension aren't too pleased! They think Richard's visits have upset the stability of their world and are holding him prisoner. Now you must cross the dimensions and prove your friendship by restoring a mysterious "Transmitter Molecule."

_Chemicus_ is a first person game very much in the style of MYST: you are wandering through a virtually empty world picking up clues and solving puzzles. From time to time, as in the MYST series, you might see another person from a distance or receive a transmission from your imprisoned friend, but there is no character interaction. So the draw of this game is not clever, pun-filled scripting, but using close observation, deduction and sheer brainpower to get from point A to point B. There is not very much more story than is given to you in the introduction; to enjoy _Chemicus_ you have to enjoy solving inventory-based mechanical puzzles.

And the scenery, of course. _Chemicus_ is a really gorgeous game. The "Other Side" is depicted as a place enough like our own world to be somewhat familiar, but enough different to give a certain sense of alienation -- again, much like MYST. The buildings and landscapes have a kind of organic texture that I personally find appealing. Unfortunately, there is no 360-degree movement; _Chemicus_ is a slideshow game. That means you're quite limited as to what you can view closely and where you can go. Personally I didn't find that too annoying (my husband hates it!), particularly as this game is so long and full of puzzles. I just didn't feel as put out by not being able to explore more fully as I might have.

Aside from the graphics and the sound -- mainly subtle f/x -- the strength of this game is in the puzzles. Because they are all based on chemistry, there is a logic to them that is often lacking. Some of the puzzles are a bit confusing, but none is arbitrary. It does in fact help to have had a course in chemistry and some math, however. The game provides a "BRain Center" to teach you what you need to know to proceed, but I found that often the information it gave you wasn't quite enough. However, I was pretty astonished at how many of the tasks could be accomplished with no specialized knowledge. In a way, this game helps point out how much we use chemistry in everyday life, without thinking about it.

I had some serious problems running this game, however. Despite having far more than the system requirements and using a full install, _Chemicus_ ran at a frustratingly slow pace. The scene transitions and animations were especially slow; I found them a good place to grab a snack or make a cup of tea. I also had trouble with the game crashing, often when I was accessing the Brain Center. If it hadn't been for those two things, I would easily have given _Chemicus_ 5 stars.

Several other annoyances were minor: games were saved as a list with each game defined by date and time only, so it was hard to tell what each one was. I consider this minor beacuse I don't tend to backtrack much. There was a lot of back and forthing -- inventory was almost never used in the place you found it -- and some of the locations were hard to keep track of. One or two puzzles involved somewhat obscure solutions, aside from the chemistry.

_Chemicus_ comes complete with a PDF walkthrough in case you get stuck. I did have to access this a few times. I didn't really like the way it was set up because, as walkthroughs tend to, it only told you what to do without telling you how. It also presents events in a specific order, which might not be the way you've played, _Chemicus_ being extremely non-linear. And I think it would have been helpful if you could have accessed the help file without totally exiting the game.

Although marketed for "Everyone" _Chemicus_ will probably appeal best to science oriented teens and adults; I don't think it will really appeal to just any adventure gamer. A long game, it took me about 30 hours to complete.

If you like MYST-type games and if you like science experiments, you will probably like _Chemicus_.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love a challenge!
Beautiful graphics, and really hard. This game is not easy, and that's the way I like it! (If you aren't like me, the makers of the game put a walkthrough on one of the CD-ROMs in case you get stuck.) This game is a first-person point & click in the style of Myst. There is a lot of area to cover and a lot of hard puzzles. It ran smoothly, and was hours of fun. For the length of time this game will take you it's also a really good value for the price. I liked it more than it's two predecessors (also good!), Physicus and Bioscopia. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Annoying and frustrating startup.
If you expect to plug the CD in and be up and running some time soon you will become as angry as I was. The installation also involves the loading of a new version of Quick Time and a thing called AIMCtrls along with its setup routine. This is all okay except for the fact that the AIM program was not on the CD. An email to Viva Media sent on a Saturday was answered on Monday instructing me to go to a Red Shift website and download the new version of the AIM thing. What to do with AIM after downloading it was not clearly indicated, but after fooling around with it a while I got Red Shift running-- well, sort of running.

The 'Activation' process (the final step) was carried out in a simple and clear step-by-step manner until the final hurdle was reached, which stated that you must be online to do it-- sorta like giving a tourist directions to a desired destination by telling him to turn left seven miles this side of the dam. Really not a significant problem, but just another little annoyance.

After calming down enough to start running Redshift-5 through its paces, I was pleased to find it to be every bit as good as advertised. It's too bad that Viva Media chooses to make such a bad first impression by inflicting a frustrating start up routine on its customers.

4-0 out of 5 stars Your own superb planetarium ¿ Redshift 5
Your own planetarium - Redshift 5

These days, it is difficult to keep up with other keen amateur astronomers without resorting to the Web, some discussion groups and planetarium software. One of the most successful and versatile software programmes available is Redshift and at a price of less than £30 it is amazing value.

Redshift was first launched 11 years ago and has been developed over the years into the current Version 5 which is a very versatile and stylish and well organised on screen: the overall impression it conveys bears comparison with Encarta, for example.

It is, above all, focused on being a planetarium programme to enable users to study aspects of visual astronomy and it is invaluable for learning about the heavens and for planning and carrying out observing sessions. There are orrery views and guided tours and tutorials and other aids for beginners.

The scope of Redshift is mind-boggling - it covers 20 million stars, 100 moons, 50,000 minor planets, 1500 comets, ... and provides access to the Hipparchus, Hubble and Tycho2 catalogues, amongst others. It can also be updated online, although it remains to be seen how much after-sales support can be provided by the software house, given the low price of the product.

It runs extremely well on my Pentium III, 600MHz PC and Windows 98 and I have only encountered one or two random glitches but these have been minor irritations and have not repeated themselves anyway. It is also a bit irritating to have to run the programme with the CD in the drive. One other drawback is a rather specialised one; users of robotic telescopes will find they cannot link them to Redshift. On the other hand packages, such as "The Sky" cost much more.

The great thing about planetarium programmes, such as Redshift, is that you can set them up so that you view the sky, or objects from wherever in space you want to site your mind's eye. Thus you can look at Saturn's rings from Saturn or the Solar sustem from Vega or Andromeda, .... More typically you set up the software for the location of your back garden, including altitude, and pan around the sky in a virtually limitless choice of space and time; zooming into great detail where required.

From my point of view, now Version 5 of Redshift is available it is an excellent programme. I like the way in which it has been enhanced to make observing sessions much more productive. The sky diary warns you of upcoming events such as meteor showers, eclipses, etc and you can access charts which pinpoint the best possible times to observe and, say, on what day and at what time is Saturn going to be at its highest elevation this year.

To help you find objects in the real sky, you can print out sky charts to virtually any degree of zoom and scale. If you have a laptop, (I got a Dell Latitude 500MHz PIII for £350 recently), you can use it to great effect alongside your scope. To make things easier, Redshift have now provided a "night observing mode" which dulls the screen to preserve night vision and you can flip the screen to whatever angle that matches your telescope setup.

Overall, I regard this as probably the best all-round "buy" - in short a "must-have" astronomy package - and one which provides wonderful scope for armchair and field observing and fascinating opportunities for leisure and education.

5-0 out of 5 stars redshift 5
redshift is seriously the top of the line for anyone who wants a space program.. i've tried out several others and none can compare! redshift has multitudes of features and a plethora of information that is near impossible to exhuast! before this i only owned redshift 3 and i doubt that i have even looked up everything on that cd by this point, some 4 years later!

redshift is the maximum.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Program.... Shop around, though.
I think this is a really great program for the astronomy enthusiast. I own Starry Night Backyard and I think that RedShift 5 is vastly superior. However, I would go to http://www.viva-media.com and order it. It's $40.00 cheaper than Amazon's price! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars K-State Student
Being a college student on the go, a notebook computer is essential to my academic success. I have been fortunate enough to be a Beta Tester for Microsoft OneNote, and this program is amazing. Designed for Tablet PCs, it still works great on my Desktop and Notebook.

I am capable of typing all my notes as the professor lectures. Many students enjoy paper and pen due to the ability to draw and sketch as needed. OneNote allows you to use mouse or touch pad to enter charts, graphs, or sketches right into the notes. Notes are easy to print, save, share, and sort with OneNote.

In the past I always wrote my notes and had to try to pay attention to the professor, read the overheads, and write straight and legibly so I could read the notes for later. I always had to try and read three different things at a time. Now, I can just type away while looking at the professor and overheads allowing me to pay better attention to the professor.
Why is this better than Word? Because it is designed with the power of Word, but with all the easy to access tools needed for Note taking. Colored Pens tools, fonts, bullets, outlines, all easily accessible from the Menus.

While I love my Notebook computer, I love it even more with OneNote!

It's not bad at all; the new game, Graffiti, is quite addictive.
It's not intended to begin from the scratch, but is a good method to go further, if you have just the basis; it's a pity there's no division in units.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Gaelic!!!
This program is great! I had been looking for Gaelic language learning software for some time before I had found this and I am very happy I did. This software has so much to offer for learning Gaelic. I really appreciated the extra online features that expand and support your learning, Transparent Language really goes the extra mile by offering this. Irish Now immerses you into the language with conversation practices that feature video and audio plus you actually speak back with a microphone for the software to analyze your answers. To me this means I can experience an element of realism that makes me almost feel like I'm holding a conversation with someone in Gaelic. The software contains a tremendous amount of the Gaelic Language to learn in many different ways, which will keep you busy for some time. Overall, I couldn't be more happy with this purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Try this!!! Its good!!
I wish I had found this sooner. This product is great, it works exactly how it is supposed to. I bought this to obviously learn Gaelic and found that it was very good. It really helped me to develop my language skills in many ways. I found several features that really helped me work with my pronunciation. The audio features are so good that you can hear every word said by a native speaker of Gaelic. For practicing there are a bunch of games that you can play that are really good practice. My favorite feature was the conversation practice because there are so many of them for different situations and I found them quite useful also. All in all, this is a great program for language learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
I love this product. I really enjoy learning Irish Gaelic through it because it has so much to offer. The games are great, the audio features are so amazing and it is just a well done product in general. I would highly recomend this to anyone looking to learn Irish Gaelic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Want to Learn Irish Gaelic? Use this
Finding this program was like finding a four leaf clover. Previously, I had tried audiotapes, books, ect. but I learned more from this product in a few nights than from weeks of study with other products. Irish Now concentrates on four areas of language skills, Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing, and Vocabulary & Grammar. The audio features are so incredible that you can check to see if you are pronouncing words correctly. The videos make it possible to follow a conversational dialogue with scenes which help in understanding the context. I was able to gain a vast vocabulary through the games and large amounts of content. I would suggest anyone try Irish Now if you are trying to learn Gaelic. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Less than I had hoped for
This product has the potential for excellence. However there are several features through out the CD which were unavailable. For example, the on-line lessons did not exist. When I called the technical support. I was told they did not know when they would be available.

Some features are very good however. The dictionary is worth the price of the software. And the book is excellent. It is the actual lessons, the lack of clear information, how to use the features which is so disappointing. I would not re-buy this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works well for me!
I bought this product to supplement private lessons to prepare for a trip to Austria. I had ten weeks to get ready.

For [price] the product is pretty good. The software worked fine on my Windows XP laptop and the audio supplement CD also worked fine.

The book seems quite comprehensive and extends well beyond my simple needs or ability. The basics are covered in the first few pages. It includes written dialogs to complement the interactive lessons.

The lessons so far have proven helpful in reinforcing and expanding my weekly face-to-face lessons. It has also allowed me to venture into specific areas I know I will need, such as travel dialogs: where is the train station, can I make a reservation, how much is a taxi to the hotel.

The book includes a vocabulary section, but that is a small piece of a large book. I plan to buy a pocket dictionary for my trip.

One warning: the speech recognition feature is extremely generous and forgiving. I found I could say entirely different words and still get a rating well above average for pronunciation. Anyone who relies on this program may be quite surprised when they meet a German speaker in person. Find some other way of checking your pronuciation before you entrench bad habits!

On the plus side, any feedback at all encourages people to talk. The simple listen-repeat of an audio-only lesson plan doesn't engage as much as this. I just ignore the "accuracy meter" and its lavish praise of my native-like accent. Yeah, right! :)

My only REAL problem with the software: that stupid cartoon bird that inroduces each section. The good news is you can skip him entirely, he adds no important content and doesn't show up durind the lessons.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Software to learn spoken german
I have been very pleased with this purchase. It is well tailored to teach spoken German. The software starts with basic words and fairly quickly introduces conversation sequences from relevant situations. Voice recording allows the user to hear is own voice and compare it with that of a native speaker a feature which helps learning the correct pronunciation. Grammar is reviewed thoroughly but is not very well exercised.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn German Software
This is a great product and at a great price too. Comes with 5 CD's and a booklet.... This is worth your money ! You won't regret it. I got "Learn German Now 8.0 " by Transparent Language for Christmas and it's not for beginners. But, since there is a lot of things on the software to took me 10-15 minutes just to download.

2-0 out of 5 stars Learning German 8.1
This has a good text book and a pretty good listening to phrases CD. But the PC CD's don't allways work and in fact I had some trouble trying to reload after some problems that crashed my system. In fact it has never worked since. So I am unhappy with this product because it has been mostly user unfriendly and a waste of time and money for me...David G ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars hard to learn
i already learn french in school. And if i dind't already know a little bit then i would have a huge problem with learning from this from scratch. It's difficult to use. It doesn't teach you vocabulary. And i've found errors in the some of the translations. Overall I dont find this product useful, and it's totally not worth the money

This product is a complete waist of money. It doesn't teach you step by step, all the material is translated into english. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy and fun way to learn Czech
I found the Talk Now! Czech CD-ROM very helpful in learning some basic Czech words and phrases. It is a difficult language to learn and this program offers easy games and options to keep it fun and motivating. While it doesn't get into grammar and more complex Czech, it's a great start for anyone wanting to feel more at home in the Czech Republic! ... Read more
