Amazon.com Review

Astronomy is a very popular hobby, and many people findcomputer software helps them pursue this interest. Software can be veryflexible in its approach, helping you identify what you're looking atin the night sky on any particular date and learn more about astronomyin general. RedShift 4 is no exception. Indeed, many have regarded pastincarnations of this title as the best astronomy software available.

The great thing about RedShift 4 is that it works well for both noviceand experienced astronomers. The Sky Diary is on hand for you to lookup interesting events for the month ahead, from meteor showers tophases of the moon and eclipses. The program explains each event andwhen best to look for it. Manipulating the night sky is easy, too. Youcan add and remove objects simply, and can even plot spacecraft as theytrack across the sky.

If armchair learning is more to your liking, you can browse the photogallery, with its 400-plus photos taken with some of the mostsophisticated telescopes in the world. You can also view the multimediatutorials that talk you through the history of the solar system, thebig bang, double stars, and more. And for a real treat, how aboutobserving the night sky from the surface of Mars, or Jupiter, or themoon? RedShift was always a powerful piece of software. It just gotbetter. --Sandra Vogel ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost Excellent
Although this software might take a little time to learn. It's well worth the wait. Great star maps and excellent images of the solar system, although not much for deep space.

3-0 out of 5 stars Redshift 4 - Warned!
As an amateur astronomer who has experience using a great variety of astronomy/planetarium software, I eagerly awaited the release of Redshift 4. One or two of the features I had requested in correspondence to the developer were to be included in this release. In my opinion, Redshift 4 shares very little with its wonderful predecessor, Redshift 3. Though you have more options and improved control in selecting what you wish to see regarding deepsky objects, limiting magnitudes, object labels, zoom levels, etc., it all gets lost in a very cumbersome interface that leaves you frustrated and willing to compromise.
Two other areas where I found the software very below expectations were in having to open or create a work session, or event screen to begin, and in the printed sky charts. At least with my equipment, stars on the printed charts appeared the same size whether they were magnitude 2 or magnitude 6. Not good for starhopping or use as finder charts at all!.
In the Redshift legacy, I am so grateful I retained Redshift 3. Though support has dwindled for this release (when I last checked, Piranha Publishing and Maris Multimedia were no longer providing updates for new comets and asteroids - you may want to check for yourself), Redshift 3 still ranks as premiere astronomy software which is useful at just about every level (wish it had eyepiece and telrad fov indicators). Where it is unsurpassed however, is in its fun and educational factors. It's hard to find a better program to learn the sky and the awesome hobby of astronomy.

2-0 out of 5 stars NO! They ruined it!
Redshift 3 was, hands down, the you-know-what in this software category. It was near-perfection! They have brought it down to the garden variety of its competitors. I will stay with Redshift 3!

BTW, I am a PhD in astronomy, so if I seem upset, please see the other posts. I am not alone. This is its competitor with the little squeaky hand, not the great Redshift we have come to know and love.

Navigation is terrible, and frames change settings with views. I am going to be ill. Excuse me. Nooooo!

2-0 out of 5 stars What Happened?
I wish I'd first read the other reviews here. I though a Version 4 should include and improve on the features of version 3. It seems half the things in version 3 that I really liked, have been removed (such as being able to indivdualy zoom objects), and in return what do we get, multiple views and a few more stars... Well at least I now have a full collection of all 4 versions of redshift..

5-0 out of 5 stars A great program and value!
After reviewing other similar products, this is the best value for the price, and a wonderful program.

I did find the program a challenge to learn and as a result was initially dissappointed. However as I became more familiar with it, I have been very pleased. I used Redshift to assist me in teaching a astromony unit for a couple 6 grade classes. It had the flexibility to allow me control the complexity of what was viewed so that I could easily help the students grasp difficult concepts.

Big suggestion for the Redshift people - The program doesn't allow the viewer to export views, so they can be used in other programs. I needed to use certain views of astronomical objects in another program (Powerpoint) and the only way to generate them was rather cumbersome. This should be an option through the Redshift program.

In summary, after a short learning curve, a very good program and value. ... Read more

i was very disappointed in this software. although it does help with test taking, it does little in the way of initial presentaion of the material. even the "tutorial mode" is actually more test taking. so, if simply practicing test questions is the goal, this is a great program. but, in terms of allowing a user to learn the material or go beyond the rote delivery of information in school, this software falls far short of of what it promises to do.

5-0 out of 5 stars BioTutor
BioTutor helped me to excel and gave me an advantage over the other students in my class. BioTutor's probing questions and diagrams make a difficult subject easy to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars BioTutor
"I've been using BioTutor® and it really helps. It's pulled up my grade from a B to an A. The only reason I was getting a B before was because I didn't have very good test scores. However, on my most recent test (on Genetics) I got a 37 out of 35 points (including a 2 point extra credit question) because I had reviewed that chapter in BioTutor®. It's really helpful!"

2-0 out of 5 stars Repetitive matching game, not much learning.
My 5 year old son does enjoy I See Sue, but I hoped for a more educational experience than this. The little informative elements are not interactive and he learned most of the content from a night of reading a good dinosaur book. Not recommended by a mom who prefers her child to be gaining a little more out of time spent on a computer.

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is not for you! . . . . (It is for your kid.)
I am the main designer of this game.

It is painful to see some customers unhappy with their purchase. It clearly is not what they expected.

It was not designed to entertain busy adults. Instead, we played the game with four-year olds in a day care center until they could easily grasp the game, but still had to be pulled away.

Nor was it designed to be "educational" - as if there were a paleontology curriculum in kindergarten. If you want your child to distinguish the Jurassic era from the Mesozoic, buy a different title. Instead this game teaches your child to make wise trade-offs and to think ahead. You choose.

If you can read this review, you will probably find the game slow-paced and repetitive. You might quit before you discover that it is also subtle, deep and exciting.

3-0 out of 5 stars We liked it!
Well, kids are different, aren't they? My 5-year-old liked playing cards against the computer to match the dinosaur parts, he liked seeing his dinosaurs appear on the various gameboards, and he liked the "prizes" which were coloring pages he could print out. It IS repetitive, but often kids this age like repetition. I wouldn't say it's highly educational about dinosaurs, but just as we don't have only one kind of book in our collection, we have a variety of software. I can tell my son enjoyed mastering this game.

1-0 out of 5 stars [....]
No users manual, no help file, no clear explanation or guidance in the program itself. If I can't figure out what the point of this game is, then how can my four-year-old be expected to make any sense of it?

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy Sue the T.Rex
I just finished playing this game with my 4 year old son and I must say that neither of us found this title to be even remotely entertaining. It lacks the depth, superb graphics, and variety of the VERY good dinosaur game - Dinosaur Adventure 3-D. The entire game is this simple: Match 3 dinosaur tiles (head, mid-section, and tail) before your opponent does... and do it again, and again, and again... I didn't play it with my son for more than 20 minutes before I gave up from sheer boredom. I would suggest spending your money on Dinosaur Adventure 3-D instead. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A collision with a meteorite has stopped Earth from rotating on itsaxis! Now half of the planet is turning to a ball of ice while the side facingthe sun gets hotter... and hotter. If the planet is to survive, you mustgenerate enough electricity to power a giant impulse machine, the only devicethat can get the planet rotating again. The only problem is with the impulsemachine's electrical generators--not only are they scattered throughout theworld, none of them is working correctly.

Physicus is a first-person role-playing game in the style of Myst,designed for players aged 10 and older. Players click through a nearly endlessseries of gorgeously rendered scenes, scanning any stray objects they find andusing them to repair and activate the electrical generators. The key differencebetween this and similar games, though, is that all the puzzles inPhysicus are based on solid scientific principle.

Fortunately, you do not have to be a wizard in optics, Newton's principles ofmotion, or any other aspect of the physical sciences to play this game. Theexpert is provided for you, in the form of a virtual laptop, which can guide youthrough your world-spanning task. Within the laptop, the fundamental concepts ofphysical science are laid out in a clear and entertaining format, complete withdiagrams and animated illustrations. This banquet of information is broken intobite-sized morsels for younger players, and is available for access at any pointin the game. What's more, the game is very well cross-indexed, with links to thecorrect sections of the laptop appearing whenever a puzzle presents itself.

Physicus is one of the rare educational games that genuinely have it all:great story, super graphics, and truly interesting puzzles. Visually, it melds alush Victorian retrotech sensibility with hardcore educational content. Thefirst-person interface gives the players the opportunity to fully imaginethemselves in this complex adventure. Engaging enough to hold the attention ofadults as well as younger players, it makes an excellent shared project for aparent-and-child team. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Awesome graphics, but a huge disappointment
This game looked so cool as it made my Pentium 1 computer crash again and again that I purchased a new Pentium 4 machine JUST TO GET THIS GAME TO RUN!

Physicus has an intriguing storyline. Awesome, superior 3D graphics. The reference material is top rate.

But the game: In a scavenger hunt scenario you search for clues then solve problems. There is not enough direction. Hours of aimless frustrating hunting. There is no help in the game that provides any guidance as to what to do next.

The Tivola website offers some guidance, even shows you the answers for the next step but this leaves you no feeling of success. Even after these Tivola hints, you still can't find subsequent clues until more aimless frustrating hunting.

I don't like scavenger hunts where I don't know what I'm looking for so this game is a huge disppointment for myself and 9 yr old child.

It could be useful as reference material for explaining physics related subjects to kids, but the game needs a greater degree of direction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Physicus
Physicus is a terrific game. It is similar to Myst, with the game play and graphics, and has the added bonus of being very informative. The information on optics, mechanics, acoustics, electricity, and heat are excellent. Some of my middle school students love it. They have fun playing, and they're learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars Famous Software Tool
This software is found to be educational for those who are currently interested in the physics field and/or want to pursue future careers that generally involve physics. Recently, I've observed that the software itself is truly designed for teenaged students aged 10-16, in grades 5-11 and an excellent resource for physics-related science coaches. After all, it also provides an opportunity for many middle and high schoolers to excel in this software for many education purposes.

For instance, it is mainly used for situations when a teenager wants to try harder to sucessfully progress his masteries in various courses without any of bothersomeness in his parents' authority. As an idealist of the new century, I hope you find this to be your success material of all!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Need More Work From the Creators
This game is an interesting one, but completely confusing. I would like if it could tell the player what she/he is supposed to do. I try to play this game, but I am always bewildered about what exactly do I have to do to reach the next level. I just get lost and walk around for like hours without a clue! You should say something like "Here you must solve the ........." or something like that. This way people can understand what you mean and what they have to accomplish.

I really liked this game. The graphics are awesome and it's tricky enough to hold my attention but easy enough (okay, I looked at the hints twice!) to know that I will save the world! Very cool. ... Read more

Mosby's is one of the biggest names in American medicalreference. For 75 years flu victims in Fresno, syphilitics in Seattle,plague carriers in Peoria, and hypochondriacs in Hackensack have beenchecking its authoritative pages for the right terms, drugs, andtreatments to go with their conditions. And now it's been made eveneasier to scope out your symptoms with the one-disc Mosby's MedicalEncyclopedia CD-ROM, containing just about all there is to know inthe field of contemporary medical expertise.

The format is admirably clear. A column on the left of the screenindicates the various available sources on the disc. Click on each toaccess the subsection you want. Most useful is perhaps the encyclopediaitself, which gives plain, lucid, informative definitions of some20,000 medically related terms. Below the encyclopedia is a very handydrug guide, affording the scientific background and uses ofmultifarious pills, medicines, and remedies, from ibuprofen toIntaferon, temazepam to Tixylix. Equally interesting is the humanatlas, which diagrammatically maps nervous, lymphatic, muscular, anddigestive systems, amongst others. The on-disc Internet guide, whichlinks you to pertinent Web sites and apposite net addresses, is prettycool too.

In fact, there's so much information here it might prove slightlyoverwhelming for the layman, and in some ways the CD-ROM is aimed asmuch at professional users as the needy family or inquisitiveindividual. But for those willing to swallow the odd technical term,it's still pretty hard to think of a better single-disc medicaldictionary on the CD-ROM market. --Sean Thomas ... Read more
