4-0 out of 5 stars Pooh - 6 stars, Mickey - 2 stars. Buy it for 2-4 YO!
Pooh CD is really great for 2-4 year olds. It offers several 6-7 (!) various activities. All of them are interesting and useful in some way. Each has 3 different difficulty levels, so your child can grow with the program. The visual quality is extremely high and this software can work on older PC. I run it on my old PIII 350 without 3d card and was very happy.

Mickey CD has a couple of activities, but they are either not challenging enough or, when challenging, are too boring. I doubt your child will be using it much.

Overall, the Pooh game is so good, it makes the whole package worth the money.

Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent, cohesive, glitch-free software for your toddler
This is a terrific package of toddler software, featuring one disc of Winnie the Pooh Toddler and one disc of Mickey Mouse Toddler. Activities are inherently interesting to children -- colorful, musical problem solving and play -- and generally have three difficulty levels in order to customize the experience.

In Winnie the Pooh, each activity (involving letter recognition, sorting, counting, music, sequence completion and painting) occurs in one of the main characters' houses, and children use a navigation screen showing all the houses situated in 100 Acre Wood. As each activity is completed, that character is free to attend Eeyore's birthday party. When all of the activities are completed, your child can attend the party and watch the story ending. This kind of cohesive play is sorely missing from most kids' software.

In Mickey Mouse Preschool, the navigation screen is set at a diner and gas station run by Goofy. Activities include music, design, arcade shooting, following directions, opposites and games. Most are car-oriented, which is especially fun to many children. While this game doesn't have an overarching goal like that in the Winnie the Pooh game, it is lively and fun.

The two discs make a terrific combination for your 2- to 4-year old. Highly recommended. ... Read more

The game runs slow on a G4 with 1/2 Gig of ram. The colors are kinda drab and I think Myth 2 looks better. On top of it all, you can still play people in myth 2 on playmyth.net (with a patch). You can also play M3 on playmyth, but you are unlikely to find any opponents.

In short, go get myth 2. It is cheaper and you can find people to play against in it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Help Is Here
Although Myth III did get off to a rough start, there is now more reason than ever to buy this game and give it a chance. The volunteers at MythDev.com have produced a patch for Myth III that fixes the major game bugs and allows playing on the popular PlayMyth.net game server. There is also a demo available for those that wish to see the updates before buying. So buy this product..., download the patch from mythdev.com and join us on PlayMyth.net for all the carnage!

4-0 out of 5 stars Help Is On The Way
Though this game got off to a bad start, the volunteers at MythDevelopers have completed a patch that will allow you to play this game online and fix a majority of the bugs that the game shipped with. The patch will allow playing on the playmyth.net gaming service solving the problems associated with GameSpy. This game is now at a reasonable price. So buy it, download the patch from mythdev.com and join us on playmyth.net for all the carnage! There will be a demo of the game available on playmyth.net by April 6, 2003.

In the beginning, there was Myth. A revolutionary real time strategy that didn't rely on resource managment, or "building" enough troops to overpower your enemy. Life was good.
Then Bungie got bought by Microsoft, and the rights to the Myth games fell upon Take 2 Interactive. This is where Myth 3 comes into play. Take 2's first inhouse development.
I swear that this game was released in an alpha state. The bug list is just too long to list here. The worst of them is probably the 'buddy' crash. Just click the 'buddy' button on GameSpy, and back to the desktop you go. The pregame narrations don't always match the text scroll, and can dump you into the level before you've even heard what all of the goals are.

Single player maps seem strangely unbalanced. One level can be rediculously easy, and the next can be rediculously hard. There are heros on almost every level with a 'keep alive' tag on em. And like I wrote before, the balance thing comes in. On one level, Connacht died after just four swipes from a myrkridia, while on the first few levels, he could take on a pack all by himself.

Units- Some of the characters from Myth 1 and 2 make a return, but so many varients of them have been put into the game, it becomes pointless and confusing. Ghol priests, ghol brutes, standard ghols. Which is which?
The units are far too difficult to click on, and double clicking (to select all units of a particular type) only works about half of the time.

The flavor text bar, which was a great part of the first two games (useful for seeing what units are selected), has become unreadable. The text is fuzzy, and the bar takes up far too much of the screen. Myth 3 also introduces two more bars (one at the top, and one at the bottom). These aren't quite as intrusive, but they aren't customizable. They need to be turned off every single time, and in a certain order, so if you want one, but not the other, you need to go through the whole cycle to find it.

Music and voice acting.- The music by itself is okay. A nice celtic mix. It doesn't quite match the game. I may be too used to the 'feel' of the classical style from the first two games to make an honest judgement of it. They need some new actors for the narrations. I never thought it possible that an actor could speak with more halts, and emphasis on the wrong words than William Shatner, but here we are. In game volume is about two or three settings lower than the narration, so if you turn up the volume to hear your units in game, your ears hurt when the between level stuff comes up. (really bad when you have headphones on)

Graphics.- for the units and the meshes, this gets a very high score. The maps, are very well done, and the units are very detailed. The grass and trees even sway in the wind. This means you're going to need a very high end machine to run this though. The system requirements say 400mhz. This is totally unrealistic. You're going to need at least 600 to run this bloated beast of a game, and if the action heats up, and bodies start to pile, you're probably going to want more.

Do yourself a favor, and keep your money. Don't waste your time with this. Just look back on Myth 1 and 2 with fond memories, and forget this one ever existed ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

After a brutal storm wrecks his ship, a bedraggled Robinson Crusoesuccessfully manages to drag himself ashore--he's the sole survivor and it'syour task to help him escape in this animated story CD-ROM.

From the start, Robinson Crusoe is a gripping game, brilliantly narratedby Martin Jarvis. It opens with stirring dramatic music as Crusoe talks of hisdesire to travel the oceans of the world despite the strong opposition of hisfather. Unfortunately, lightning strikes his ship, and from the moment you seeCrusoe arrive alone on the beach, you have to take on his role. Stranded aloneon the Island of Despair, you must keep your spirits up and carry out varioustasks to prevent yourself from starving or becoming the victim of a savage wildanimal.

Your first task is to get on board the shipwreck. Using your mouse button, youhave to collect all the pieces you need to build a raft, which will thenhopefully take you and the remaining food and water ashore. The scenes are veryatmospheric and well illustrated, and you even need to wait for a low tidebefore you head for the wreck.

This game comes with clear instructions on how to navigate through theadventure. By clicking on a book icon, you can find tools or objects to makelife on the island easier. When you hold down the mouse button, you can enjoypanoramic views of the island as if you were actually standing there. And, likeCrusoe, you have to constantly beware of the cannibals. --Justin Hunt ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Is this supposed to be fun?
If you are looking for a fun game to play with your kids, keep looking. My 8 year old and I could not navigate through the game even after reading the instructions several times. The play is not in 3D animation.

We're not quitters, so we read the same "book" in the story and wandered around the ship trying to pick up objects, but there is no place to keep an inventory and no way to "grab" the objects.

This game is not like Harry Potter or even Nancy Drew, where you can go different places or follow a path. Its based on a 2D drawing that doesn't "do" anything! It is frustrating, useless and not entertaining. Save your money, even if it's only $!

5-0 out of 5 stars A fun game
This game is fun because its not like normal games.You have to survive without your parents.The game is a lot of fun.You have to find food,shelter and water in order to play farther in the game. The graphics in this game are wonderful. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The Narration NEVER stops
This is one of the most annoying Princess games ever. It loads fine on my computer but when your in the game the narration is slow, obnoxious and never stops. 2 mins to explain each game! You can't by pass it! My child got this for Christmas was excited and now..hates it. She's 7 and thinks this is the stupidest game.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not truely XP compatible.
I also should have read the reviews on this however, my Daughter loves this game. I do not have the problems with sound or graphics as they are very clear on our system. However, my 4 year old now has to have Administrator rights on the system in order to play this game. I bought XP so I could allow the kids functionality on the computer without me hovering over them. I studied how to set the system up for limited users and Administrators (which can do everything), but now all that work and the money for the product are gone. I have made my complaint with Disney as they are the ones that informed me that they have no intention on changing this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars I should have read the reviews here first!
I purchased the game for my 4 year old daughter and was extremely disappointed in the quality. I should have read the reviews first as they sum up the CD-ROM perfectly. Slow to load, confusing, a mumbling narrator and terrible graphics. This is the first and last Disney CD-ROM that I will purchase. The Vivendi Universal games that distribute all of the Barbie titles could definitely teach Disney a thing or two about designing age appropriate, amazing software for kids. Don't waste your money on this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars mom of a 5 year old
This game is terrible. I have just purchased my computer and the game is so slow. A grown person can barely place the furniture much less my 5 year old. The introduction to the game and instructions are way to long for a childs attention span.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment!
We bought this cd for our 7-year-old daughter. The cd seems to slow down the speed of the drive so that it can't be installed at all. Nothing we try works, and our computer is only about a year old and surpasses all of the system requirements. We have never had this much trouble from a cd before. Overall, it has been a waste of money and time, not to mention a disappointment to a small girl who thought it looked fun. We expected more from a big money company like Disney to put out better quality products. This is our first Disney Interactive CD, and most definitely our last. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Exploring London and Paris to find 102 missing Dalmatian puppies isquite an adventure; kids dodge Cruella, Le Pelt, and Alonso while playing zany,multilevel games and learning about historic spots.

This CD-ROM is extremely kid-friendly. Kids ages 4 through 8 navigate the mainscreen using a giant puppy paw as a cursor. However, one of the games, Adopt aPuppy, requires Internet connectivity and parental supervision since kidsdownload up to six "international online parks" as they progress through thegame.

Whether children print postcards from around the world or learn theresponsibilities of adopting a virtual puppy, they'll get to practice theirproblem-solving skills while trying to make all 102 Dalmatians happy. Ourfavorite game in Disney's 102 Dalmatians Activity Center is Verdogo, afast-paced arcade-style maze where kids travel through pneumatic tubes, rotatingpans, ladders, and moving belts to find wayward pups while avoiding Alonso, LePelt, and Cruella.

Another challenging game, Chow Time, has kids slinging dog food while gettinggreat practice using the arrow keys and space bar to make sure none of the pupsgoes hungry. For creative kids, the Pup Art Gallery will provide hours of funwhile kids study the masters of "pup" art. Children can create their own art bychoosing from a variety of backgrounds and character stickers from the movie.

Finally, kids get a chance to play detective in Operation: Dalmatian, amind-bending logic game. Children can play this interactive, top-secret mission andapply deductive reasoning skills as they collect clues to find the Top Dog.(Ages 4 to 8) --Tina Velgos ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Game... Parts of it are a bit monotonous for young kids
This game was purchased for my six year old. She is a pretty active kid...not a lot of computer experience yet. When she first began to play, she was very tempted to look at her fingers...I sat beside her and held a lg. piece of paper over her hands, which solved the problem. The first night she learned to type f,d,j and k. She liked to "shoot bugs" (by typing the correct letter) but mandatory pages of just letters was a bit frustrating for her. I think that this game should go a little slower and therefore be more of a game and less work. I rate this game a solid B. It seems that it would be perfect for an 8 or 9 year old.

5-0 out of 5 stars Time to give Mavis her walking papers!
This is not one of those cutesy titles that only pretends to be about education. This is an extremely well-designed, well-thought-out program that effectively teaches typing (i.e., keyboarding). Anything even remotely associated with The Lion King may trigger the gag reflex in survivors of the whole Lion King blitzkrieg, but rest assured: Timon and Pumba do not have center stage here; the lessons do. Never sacrificing the functional for the cute or gimmicky, this program is structured, yet adaptive, and uses a gradual progression of exercises to provide just the right degree of challenge as the user progresses. In other words, the program captivates by providing variation (to keep things from getting dull) and by making the goal seem easy while maintaining just the right level of difficulty. Both my wife and nine-year-old were instantly hooked and have progressed dramatically. I do have a few minor complaints (for example, icons for navigating through the program could be more intuitive or--Heaven forbid--identified with actual words), but overall, this is a finely crafted tool that condenses a one-semester high school typing class (of yore) onto a single CD-ROM--but without the boring teacher.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unhappy
I have had a terrible time getting this program to run. It constantly shuts down or comes up with errors. It was a total waste of money as far as I am concerned.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game, tons of fun!!!!!!
This game includes four fun-filled levels. It's great for kids of all ages. But I am sorry that it is SO difficult to find in stores. I recomend this item to anyone who is looking for a very, very fun learn to type game for children.

2-0 out of 5 stars Boring! Boring! Boring!
While this program appears to be cute and engaging at the onset, it quickly becomes very boring. My daughter likes the ONE game, but can't get past the first row of typing because it's so monotanous. There is nothing to challenge her to keep going and improving - no incentive. Just more boring repetition like we had to do in high-school. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Fun game, but you have to change 6 computer settings to play
I really enjoy playing this game, but you have to change 4 computer settings, and 2 Quicktime settings to play it, and that is a royal pain. Then I have to change them all back to the original settings to use the internet. I've NEVER had to do that with any software before this one, and I have a Pentium 3!

5-0 out of 5 stars One great game!!
I love shows from the 60's and 70's! When this came out I knew this was the perfect game for myself. One of my favorite actor's I got to play the game with was Don Adams. It was wonderful to see all these actors and actresses again, they've still got it!

5-0 out of 5 stars "Blast from the Past" is Really a Blast!
Finally ... a game that is fun and easy to use. My girlfriend and I just finished playing "Blast from the Past." I beat the pants off of her (mainly because she hadn't even been born before most of the shows featured on this gane were originally aired). At any rate, the game is great and would be a bargain at twice the price!

5-0 out of 5 stars Coolest Game!!
I am 12 years old and loved this game. I love watching old TV shows, so when I saw this game, I had to buy it. I recomend this game to anyone who likes game shows, even if they don't know the answers to old TV shows.

5-0 out of 5 stars great trivia game
If you like classic TV and trivia games you'll love this game. It is a fast paced game that can be played by 1 or 2 players or even by teams if you choose to. I liked the fact that actual stars from classic TV shows ask the questions. There are 6 different mini games but only four are used in any one game. So you don't even know exactly what combination of games will be used when you play. I think that adds to the fun of playing the game. Another feature this games has is the ability to keep track of which games have been played so that there is less chance of repeating games until all games have been played. ... Read more
