5-0 out of 5 stars a great activity
My daughter, 5, loves to play this game. She dresses up the animals in very creative ways and feeds them too. The game holds her attention over many other "fancier" type programs. She loves to bathe the dogs and give them a check-up too. She even prints out her creations. Best of all, this is a game that she can do by herself. A lot of other games seem to be a bit difficult for her age. This one is truly for young kids.I would say that this game is worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars 3&7 year old love this game
My 7 year old daughter got this last year for christmas and she still sits and plays it all the time. You pick your own animals and set up your pet shop, then you care for your pets, groom them, and dress them up. Her favorite thing about this I think is the music she is always singing along with it. My 3 1/2 year old son likes this too it's easy for him to play it all by himself.

5-0 out of 5 stars I buy this for all my kids friends
I'm actually buying a replacement CD. My oldest daughter loved this, now my youngest daughter loves it but it got too scratched. It's great because it's so easy for them to learn and they can play it without getting frustrated (and I don't have to bail them out!) The song is nice, it's not violent, it teaches compassion and both of my girls now want to be veterinarians. My youngest was 3 when she first played this, now she's 5 and has a lot of other newer computer games but still likes to go back and play this one -- hence, the replacement CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this game!
I got this game last year for my 3 year old son. He loved it so much. ... My 7 year old daughter really enjoyed playing the game too.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Game
My daughter has had this game for a little over a year, and she has never tired of it. It remains one of her favorite games. She is a big animal lover, so it is right up her alley. It is simple to use, yet allows her to be creative and use her imagination. A great game for boys or girls. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible game - The victim is you and the perp is Aspyr
This is about the worst piece of software that I have come across in recent times. It is reminiscent of the early days of software development when all manner of quirky, buggy junk used to make it onto the shelves of retailers.

But that was 20 years ago. Since then software development has matured considerably and although there are bugs they don't impede the general purpose of the game - which is to challenge and entertain.

Well there's no entertainment here. The graphics are dreadful. The sound is non-existent and there's no way to exit out of the game without having to reboot the computer. Something our Windows cousins are well accustomed too but is a very rare occurrence on the Mac these days with the release of OS/X.

So how does a lame piece of rubbish like this get on the shelves of respectable ret retailers ? That's a good question. I guess that with all the software out there it is difficult to check every game out. Retailers probably look in the box figure out that there is a CD and a manual and assume everything is ok.

It is ironic that a company that sells this type of software calls itself Aspire - misspelled ASPRY - it should more aptly call itself DSPYR for despair.

All I think of is that in the end of all of this process you - the buyer - are the victim in this transaction if you buy this game and the perpetrator the company called ASPYR. Hopefully the good people in Law & Order will catch on to this con and throw ASPYR's arse in the clinker.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Game
I've tried to get it to work on two different platforms, a G3 Macintosh running the lastest Jaguar and a G4 running the latest Panther. Aspyr technical support is absolutely no help. Don't buy this game until they fix the bugs (freeze-ups and virtually no sound). It's a $40 ripoff.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work
This game doesn't work. It freezes up. I tried to work with Aspry and when it still didn't work after all their suggestions, they said that it must be a problem with my system. Some other program must be interrupting play, which of course wasn't tremendously helpful. I recommend not buying this game until or unless Aspry discovers a solution.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
I bought this game for my dad as a Christmas present. Unfortunately it's not much of a gift since it doesn't work. Even after making sure our system software was completely up-to-date, it locks up constantly and is basically unplayable. I even attempted to install it on my own system with the same results. Aspyr doesn't offer any solutions to this problem which seems to be widespread. Don't buy this game until Aspyr offers a patch. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Putt-Putt and Pep are on their way to the circus, and they're looking forward to three rings of fun. Unfortunately, a hungry goat eats their ticket, so the car and his canine pal must earn their way to a ringside seat. Fortunately, the circus owner has some serious problems, and he enlists Putt-Putt to solve them. The reward--if he succeeds in getting the circus up and running--is a free lifetime ticket to the big top.

Putt-Putt Joins the Circus is a role-playing adventure for children between 3 and 8 years of age. The various circus performers are all refusing to do their shows, and Putt-Putt must change their minds, either by finding a lost item or winning a simple arcade-style challenge. The puzzles and arcade games are easy and straightforward, and users will find extensive animated sequences sprinkled throughout the story. Along the way, they can help out a number of talking vehicles and friendly circus animals. One word of warning: older players may find the animations too lengthy, and the simplicity of the challenges means they will finish the game quickly.

Putt-Putt is an appealing character and he shines in this game, which features large, colorful graphics, great sound, good humor, and a nice mix of storytelling and problem solving. Putt-Putt Joins the Circus also comes with a parent/teacher guide, which suggests methods of reinforcing the lessons of teamwork and kindness that are the game's themes, a nice supplement to the gaming experience. --Alyx Dellamonica ...

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent software for young game players
If your child has played beginning software like JumpStart and is ready to move on to more advanced gameplay, Humongous Entertainment's Putt-Putt series (and Freddi Fish and Pajama Sam, as well) are an excellent choice. These titles take the cognitive tasks up a notch as children must accumulate specific items, navigate a number of locations, and use their problem-solving skills to help their friends and achieve larger goals. Along the way, kind and gentle Putt-Putt and his dog Pep will meet a number of nice characters, visit a variety of interesting locations and play games as they complete the larger tasks.

In Putt-Putt Joins the Circus, the overarching goal is to earn a ticket to the show by performing a variety of tasks and helping the various acts prepare. You must get a nose for the clown, help the organ arrange her pipes, get a power drink to the strong-van, find a new tent for the fleas, etc. There are quite a few locations and objects, so it would be a good idea for you to help your child for a while. Eventually they will probably want to play on their own. The characters are lovable and there is a lot of humor here. We run it on a Mac and have had no problems at all -- very stable and easy to install.

This is one of the best titles in a great series.

4-0 out of 5 stars Why no positive reinforcement?
I'm a parent of 2 children, 5 and 2. Both find this, as well as all Humongous software, quite a bit of fun. My problem, as a parent, is that after working on clues and spending as much as an hour getting through the game, all the positive reinforcement goes to the onscreen character, (Freddi Fish/Putt-Putt) and the child is left empty. Why on earth doesn't Putt-Putt acknowledge the child as the reason the game was solved? Accolades are heaped on Putt-Putt, while my five year old looks on with an expression frustration hoping someone onscreen will talk with her. Great games from Humongous, but they need to work more directly with the children playing them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Putt-Putt is great
I got putt putt with a computer that i had bought as one of the disks included. My son was 2 at the time and loved playing this game with me looking for missing clues and helping to put them together. now at 3 yrs of age he plays all by himself with it and knows exactly where to go each time he starts over.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Young Kids Age 4 to 7
Add this one to the list of great (young) kid's games produced by Humongous, including the Freddi Fish & Pajama Sam series. Although my grandson has outgrown these titles, my great nieces and nephews are now playing them. They are both entertaining and educational.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fun, fun game!
Both my 3 1/2 yr. old and my 6 yr. old girls play this game. They both truly enjoy this game. In fact, I have to get them some of the other Putt-Putt games, because they enjoy them so much! This is a delightful game that teaches problem solving and memorization in a very fun way. It is a great game for either boys or girls. I would recommend this and any other Putt-Putt games. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Solid Game with only a few flaws
Ford Racing 2 helps fill a hole in mac gaming, namely the lack of racing games. Great graphics, fairly good sound. It's main weakness is playability hampered by extremely sensitive keyboard controls that make you crash your car from side to side, like you have a high blood alcohol level. Unfortunately, the in game controls are not helpful, but you can adjust the keyboard response rate in System X's System Preferences. Ideally a wheel should be used with this game, though at this point I can't justify the expense and with some practice and frustration you can control the cars with a keyboard.Also,the physics model is not very realistic in that no damage shows up, no matter how much you run in to walls or cars. Ferral's racing games get better and better, and I would recommend this game to someone that enjoys racing games and has a fair amount of patience. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great problem solving!
My almost 5 and almost 3 year old girls love these games! We rented the Europeon Adventures from the library, and decided to try this out, since that game is included. What a bargain for so many games! If your kids like Madeline, they will enjoy this!

4-0 out of 5 stars Madeline software is delightful
My daughter has an earlier Madeline computer program, and it has been the best we've bought. Unlike Reader Rabbit, which I think can be frustrating for small children because it takes so long to "win" the game by collecting items, the Madeline program builds smaller, more easily attainable arenas for success. Plus, the program grows with the child. We bought ours when she was not quite three; at five years old, she can still enjoy it using the higher level activities. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Such delicious fun.
Max Payne is one of those rare games that does everything right. Great plot, amazingly fun, and it doesn't take itself seriously at all. You are Max Payne -- an ex-cop whose family was killed by junkies. As the game's plot unfolds, you are sucked into a conspiracy that takes you from exacting your revenge on petty mob bosses all the way up to those responsible for ruining you. The game's Bullet Time system gives you the edge you need to defeat the hordes of mobsters, mercenaries, and more sent to stop you from discovering the truth about your past. I also highly recommend downloading the Kung Fu mod, which essentially turns Max into Neo. This game is worth every cent. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A classic and much-loved children's story is given a vivid interactive finish in The Little Prince, a CD-ROM that will thrill young readers and their parents. With elegant animations and a low-key, whimsical delivery, this CD-ROM tells the tale of a stranded pilot and his friendship with a strange young man who lives alone on a small asteroid with only a rose for company.

As an interactive storybook, The Little Prince is absolutely gorgeous. Antoine de Saint Exupéry's story is ideal for a multimedia format, since much of the tale centers around the act of drawing pictures. Kenneth Branagh's cheerful and appealing reading of the text is enhanced with sketches that not only appear on narrative cue, but interact with users--changing colors at the click of a mouse or sweeping the book's text aside to highlight the simple, but beautiful illustrations.

The Little Prince offers an intriguing mix of the simple and the sophisticated. While the humor in the story will be more appealing to older players, the games and activities in the program are extremely simple; for the most part, they are composed of animations that come alive at a single click. One game involves maintaining the ecosphere of the Little Prince's home, asteroid B-612, by destroying young baobab plants and watering his rose. Another involves making regular visits to see a wild fox, which will eventually become tame enough to play hide-and-seek with players. Little is required in either of these games except diligence and patience. The animations are simple and repetitive, and many players will tire of them quickly. However, this may only serve to refocus their attention where it deserves to be: on the story itself.

The Little Prince does justice to the original book, adding motion to the illustrations while remaining faithful to the creator's original vision. It also adds an audience-participation element that a simple home-video rendition could not provide. Though it is neither a traditional CD-ROM nor a video game, this presentation will delight its users thoroughly. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome story.
Although it isn't very user-friendly, this software is very good.

5-0 out of 5 stars "If you don't get it, you DON'T GET IT !"
This book was known by every child in my country. I was suspicious about its computer version, but was delighted with what Tivola did. They fully preserved the spirit of this masterpiece and offered something that stands way out from any other children's products that I've seen and that money can buy. The only thing I don't understand (in fact I do...) is why Amazon dares to put this book/CD in the same ballpark with Dr.Seuss!!! They could afford hiring those who feel the difference. Anyway, if you don't find this book/CD a jewel, you must be either a real "sad old man" or one of the characters described in the Little Prince. I truly hope you are not either one of those!

5-0 out of 5 stars "The Little Prince" finally came to life for me
I had read "Le Petit Prince" many years ago when I was a child. It was given to me as a gift, and at the time I put it away. A few years later I dusted it off and gave it another try. Then, in a literature class we read the book again. Many of my friends loved "Le Petit Prince." Our campus in Québec even had a showcase window with all of the "Little Prince" merchandise you could want. But somehow the story was lost on me.

Along came this marvellous software from German publisher Tivola. Contrary to what some reviewers have said, I found that installing and using the software to be very easy. Once I opened the box there was a small manual that covered the interface, gameplay and troubleshooting that got me started on my way.

The game interface on "The Little Prince" is the coolest interactive menu I have ever seen. You start out floating through the universe, past stars, the moon, spinning planets populated by characters from the book...you can move in any direction, accompanied by soothing spacemusic.

There are several different options with the software. You can have the story narrated and click on interactive illustrations, care for the Little Prince's home and rose on Asteroid B-612, explore an interactive biography of the author Antoine de Saint-Éxupéry, play the Fox Taming game on Earth that, when you tame him, you are given access to personalized stationary and a diary. All of the animations and music are top-notch. This is a labour of love that finally breathed life into "Le Petit Prince" for me. I entered his world and saw things through his eyes. Perfect for children of all ages (including grown-up ones).

4-0 out of 5 stars Creative and Unique
I originally was disappointed with this software but my son finally figured out how to use it. It's not as user-friendly as the software we're used to buying but your patience is worth it. The reading of the story, along with the pictures and music, is superb. It allows the reader to imagine with the story, unlike much American software which turns reading into a video-watching experience. The story has over 20 chapters, and has kept my 8-year old's attention. I highly recommend this software.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money - buyer beware!
This may be creative with pretty graphics and pictures but is probably the worst software I've ever bought. Neither myself nor my two very computer-literate children could figure out how to get the interactive story to run. I called the support line in Europe and they also did not know. The instructions that accompany it were also not helpful. I finally sent email to the support group and they never answered my email. I'm very disappointed with this software. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Deserve a Medal
This game is ok and can be entertaining - but hardly a classic deserving more than 4 stars. Its just an average game and that's why I went with 3 stars. I'm surprised at the number of great reviews, and perhaps the reviews pumped up my expectations, but I'm left disappointed by the overall game's experience.

PROS: The graphics are great and the plot is historically interesting - especially if you like WWII type games

CONS: Boring weapons (that hardly ever change), no gore, parts of the game oftentimes seem way to hard or way to easy.

If you like the realistic things this game brings to the table historically with the plot, weapons, etc you'll enjoy it. Otherwise I would suggest you skip it. The game has left me very disappointed. There are so many FPS out there and I don't see how this one deserves a medal outside of the graphics. As examples - I thought Soldier of Fortune II and Return to Castle Wolf were all around better experiences. Both of these games were constantly absorbing me and scaring the heck out of me. With Media of Honor I feel like I am playing a lame Quake 3 WWII mod with limited weapons and linear action.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good game!
Medal of Honor Allied Assault is a fairly good game. The combat situations are fairly realistic, along with the sound affects, and once again a great music score.

Gameplay: I though the gameplay of allied Assult was pretty fun. I mean how could running around shooting-up Nazi's NOT be fun? Though the combat in general is pretty realistic for a game, once again the running around by yourself killing 250 Nazi's isn't. It's pretty much impossible if you not at a machine-gun nest in real life. If Allied Assault had more combat with your brothers-in-arms that would rock! Which I have heard there is in Spearhead, Allied Assault's expansion. The controls were good for me, but if find there not for yourself they can be customizied. Which is very handy. Most of the levels in Allied Assaul are fun. From peration Torch to Operation Overlord and more.

Score/Sound Effects: Wonderful. The sounds of the the gun and everything are realistic. And like al MOH games the score is great.

Graphics: The graphics are a bit dated. Not the best but thhere okay.

Multiplayer: Awsome! You can play as Axis or Allies and there are plenty of maps. plus you can choose your player model.

Overal: Well there are a few things I dont like, I think all-in-all it's worth it's mone and will provide fun for sometime!

4-0 out of 5 stars Demanding but immersive
First off, let me just start by saying that MOH is the most well-written FPS out there. The story line continues from mission to mission and doesn't resort to the shambling zombies and cyborg enemies that another "WWII-era" FPS does (initials RTCW?). While I will admit that the Normandy Beach mission does seem lifted right out of Saving Private Ryan, it does lead on to some very interesting hedgerow missions.

That said, there are some problems that I'd like to discuss in this review. For starters, there's game performance. I own a PowerMac G4 867DP (MDD) with a GeForce MX440 32MB card and 1GB RAM. This was a heavy-duty machine when MOH came out. And I get frame rate drops all the time, even with resolution at medium, detail at medium, and resolution at only 1024x768 (sub 30fps numbers). This is compared with >45 fps with RTCW on max settings at 1024x768 res (Both are based on the Quake3 engine BTW). The game almost drops to 1fps briefly when you hit a checkpoint. I have upgraded to the latest version which is supposed to include routines that allow for both of my processors to be utilized, but this hasn't made much impact on the gameplay.

Second off, the graphics at the resolution I've had to play (as mentioned above) aren't as impressive as the box art, and the colors are not as deep. The texture mapping is poor, and granted this is an effect of both the lower memory of my Apple GeForce card and my settings, it is kind of disappointing.

Third, and final, the game can be astonishingly hard (I had to replay the Normandy Beach mission 8-9 times before I got past the beachhead into the bunker) even on the easy setting. It is no walk in the park like RTCW.

Getting back to some pros and leaving the cons aside, the missions are engrossing. The mission where you sabotage a U-boat by infiltrating the base as a Nazi officer and then getting discovered when you plant the first explosive is great -- and I had almost sadistic fun intentionally blowing my cover and anhillating the whole base with an MP40. The sniper alley mission in Normandy is impressively difficult but very satisfying to beat (hint: you don't have to kill EVERY Nazi but it is fun to do so!).

The sound effects are excellent too. The "ping!" of an M1 clip running out, the "rat-tat-tat" of the Thompson, and the "crack!" of a KAR-98 sniper rifle are more realistic than the sounds from RTCW.

The weapons selections are a history buff's fantasy. You get to use the following:
US Army: M1911A1 .45 cal pistol, M1 Garand rifle, Browning Automatic Rifle, Springfield Sniper rifle, Winchester Pump 12 Ga. shotgun, Thompson .45 cal SMG, US "Bazooka" antitank rocket, and Browning .50 cal machine gun.
Axis: Luger 9mm pistol, MP40 SMG, KAR98 sniper rifle, Panzerfaust antitank rocket, STG44 "Sturmgewehr" automatic rifle (the first modern assault rifle), MG44 machine gun
You also get to fool with explosives of every sort.

The detail to the levels is amazing, and realistic as well. '88' antiaircraft guns can block your path and require an airstrike you can call in. Grenades bounce like the real thing (and do require some serious practice to get the hang of). P-51 Mustangs fly overhead in the Normandy missions. German soldiers speak German (not accented English). There are no "secret labs."

This is a very satisfying game with serious attention paid to realism and detail which immerse you in the environment, but it is very demanding on even the upper echelon of G4 processors.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST GAME IN THE WORLD!!! NEEDS MORE STARS!!!!
Medal Of Honor Allied Assault is the greatest game out there it's graphics are just spectacular! Don't listen to the people who say it's a bad game. Medal Of Honor Allied Assault is historically accurate and the enemy A.I. is excellent plus the D-day levels are the best I have ever played and I've been playing for 12 years. Settle for noting less buy this game and it's expansion I BEG OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This game rules!!
I have always been a big fan of first person shooters. But also adventure games. Games of this type I've played in the past include Marathon series, Tomb Raider series, and Unreal & Unreal Tournament. (There would be more, but I only have so much time.) The story is important to me. If I want to just blast things, I'll play Unreal Tournament. Anyway . . .

The first thing I noticed about the game was how real it felt. You start out in the back of a german transport truck, you know the kind with the canvas cover, getting trucked into a German compound. The tension and anticipation is amazing!! Your first job, with your squad, is to rescue an SAS agent being held hostage there. I'll just say you encounter resistance. When one of the truck drivers papers don't check out, the mayhem begins.

Other campaigns involve capturing and then driving tanks, stealthing through winter forests at night to take out antiaircraft guns, sneaking into bases to gather intel, demolition missions, rescuing pow's, infiltrating and planting charges inside a german UBoat, and the most insane - storming Omaha beach to commence operation Overlord, infiltrating their defenses, and taking out the gun towers - totally harrowing!! Sometimes you're alone, sometimes with others - Rangers, SAS, etc. The missions are believable, sensible, and seem necessary to the allied effort.

While the game is basically a 1st person shooter, there is always a mission to guide you. It always takes a little thinking to get the job done. On your compass there is a general guide as to what direction your mission should take you, as well as a general distance guide, but it's not that easy. Let's just say the shortest distance between two points isn't always a straight line, and getting there is no stroll down 5th Avenue.

I think the AI is great. Very few stupid guards and enemies. A little advice: Stealth works. Staying out of searchlights, and walking rather than running are quite effective. Sometimes not killing enemies is preferable to machine gunning everything. Often, if you're too loud the germans will sound the alarm, which brings others quickly. And it's damn tough finding your way out of town after destroying their radio communications, when you have twenty to thirty highly trained nazis with machine guns looking for you.

The weapons are appropriate to the period - which I like. This helps the learning curve. The range on the pistol is very different from the machine gun, from the sniper rifle. Reload time is a factor! At the beginning, I would run out of a clip at just the wrong time. Pay attention. This is especially true of the sniper rifle. I like that different weapons are useful in different situations - it's not just a "machine gun always" kind of game.

My favorite part is that skill works. Thinking works. If you walk in the middle of a road, you'll likely get taken out by a sniper - in one shot! Sometimes you have to impersonate German soldiers and officers. Know how? Neither did I. You have to learn. Hint: don't run.

Good games always feel a little short, and this is no exception. There are twenty levels, and they're all fun! The finale (which isn't Omaha beach) is so damn exciting and difficult, that you'll really feel like you've accomplished something!

Graphics and sound: Outstanding!

A couple rants: 1) Sometimes you can be firing a rifle or machine gun, say to take out a guy in a tower, yet 50 yards away, others don't hear it - good for us, but not too realistic; 2) No knife to use when you sneak up on folks; 3) You should have to drag dead folks out of the way - into closets or behind walls to maintain your secrecy; 3) When you're fully loaded up, you can carry two machine guns, a sniper rifle w/ scope, a silenced pistol, ten grenades, approx 1000 rounds of ammo, and sometimes a bazooka. Can you say 75 lbs? Hardly inconspicuous. Sometimes, you might start with just a sniper rifle, or a pistol, but you can load up pretty quick, with no adverse effects; 4) On a couple missions you end up killing like two hundred folks - by yourself. Hmmm . . . . These are small points - I just get excited about the realism and envision the next level.

I haven't enjoyed a game this much in a long time. Can't wait for the sequel. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Freeverse 3D Pitch is a well done implementation
The 3D Hearts/Pitch pack will keep a Pitch or Hearts (or both) player busy for many hours. Beginners can play against the computer to learn the rules and then the strategies for these games then go online with the included GameSmith connection software (built into the game) to play with real people all over the world. The game really shines when able to play with others via GameSmith. One can play with or without offleading, partners, smudge, smudge wins all etc... and these games both support a choice of puppets, 2 of which, allow you to put a picture of your choice in their head. It is easy to chat while playing or out in a lobby trying to get a game going. Cards are social games and this product plays this up and delivers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hearts, Spades, Pitch (Setback) Wow!
If you like the idea of playing games online with a friendly group of people then any Freeverse card game and an internet connection will bring you to a fabulous place to play. Unlike the randomness other places you can play, you play with people you get to know (and like!) and the level of conversation is always adult, but not vulgar. The graphics are great and the fun never stops. If you like card games, how can you go wrong for $20? Think of it as two pizzas, but these game will last a lot longer and bring you a lot more pleasure and fewer calories.

5-0 out of 5 stars Big fun for pitch players
I was pleasantly surprised after discovering the Freeverse community. Not only have I found lots of good Pitch and Hearts players, but as a bonus I found players with a sense of humor. Unlike some sites where the lobby talk can get fairly nasty,this place refuses to put up with any swearing or bashing of any kind.Kind of a nice environment.
I recommend Freeverse as a great place to find tough and amusing opponents.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great gaming fun
Never have I gotten so much out of $20. The people online are great and fun to play with, especially that guy Broham, and you are always able to find a game with people playing your game. Possibly the best part is that the server is FREE, meaning after you pay $20, you can play online all you want.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Way to Play Hearts
Who knew when I plunked down $20 for 3D Hearts Deluxe so many years ago how many hours of fun were in store for me? Freeverse Software's 3D Hearts Deluxe offers several common rule variations, computer opponents of varying expertise, and playing with people from around the world via Freeverse's GameSmith server. The CD also include 3D Pitch Deluxe.

Most of Freeverse's card game titles share the same basic card-playing engine and thus provide by far one of the best user interfaces for playing cards on a computer. You and your opponents are represented by puppets and appear seated around a table. The cards in your hand are clearly laid out in front of you. An optional score pad shows the progress of the game and the hand. And when playing against human opponents, a chat area appears at the bottom of the window so you can also enjoy the essential social aspect of playing card games.

3D Hearts Deluxe, however, has its not-so-minor problems, two of which I mention here, which is why I'm giving this title four stars instead of five. First, a complaint common to most computer games: the computer opponents, or bots, do not play particularly well. While they may be adequate for learning the basics of the game, they are lacking when it comes to the finer points of strategy, skills which separate the decent player from the expert player. Second, the program does not allow salvaging a network game by substituting another player or a bot for a player who drops out in the middle of a game. This can prove to be very frustrating when a hard-fought game has gone on for close to an hour only to end prematurely because a player's modem disconnects him or her from the internet.

Freeverse is actively developing the 3D card games series and plans to address these issues in future updates, which will also introduce more player-suggested rule variations and improvements to the user interface. In any case, the drawbacks are far outweighed by the hours of fun you will have playing games or just chatting with other people from around the US and the world. Freeverse has fostered the growth of a community relatively free from the rude and obnoxious players that commonly hang out on services like Yahoo!'s. Provided you have internet access, free access to the GameSmith server is included with the games. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GHOST RECON RULES!!!
I love military games and I like 'em hard and realistic. No extra ammo, no health, and no extra lives. With that said, Ghost Recon gets it right. I am a big fan of Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear, so as you can imagine I was pretty excited to get a copy of Ghost Recon for OSX. Ghost Recon is pretty different from the previous games in both game play and graphics. http://www.methodshop.com/games/ The planning interface is more informational than graphical. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand it's easier to set up your team, but on the other it isn't as much fun. The graphics and sound are pretty good, but not the best out there. I'm probably a little spoiled from playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. One thing I really liked graphics wise was the uniforms. Your snipers look more like a tree or a bush than a soldier. This also gives them some extra stealth and the enemy has a harder time trying to spot them. But the real amazing thing to Ghost Recon is the game play. When you send your teams out, you better secure all possible angles and move in slow, otherwise be fully prepared to have all your guys picked off one by one. Almost every time I get lazy and skip by an area, some terrorist comes up behind my guys while they are laying in the dirt and shoots them in the back. This brings me to another cool thing about this game, the AI. The computer players are good. Here's a good example. I tried to secure a corner of a building by standing right up next to it. I was able to pick off a handful of terrorists when BAM, one of my guys got hit with a grenade. As soon as the AI figured out what I was doing, it changed strategies. How's that for realistic? Here's one final thing I liked about the game, the weapons. Rogue Spear gave you a ton of machine guns to use but most of them were crappy. Ghost Recon gives you only good guns and everything from anti-tank rockets to rocket propelled grenades. I love blasting one of those anti-tank grenades into a room full of terrorists. This game isn't like Quake or Return to Castle Wolfenstein. There are no monsters or zombies, just terrorists and your team. It's more of a simulator than a game I guess, but it's still a ton of fun. I used to have a view of the World Trade Center from my window. Now it's just a memory I keep fresh while I clear board after board of Ghost Recon. This game is available for most platforms including PSX2, PC, Mac, Xbox and Game Cube. by JLOVE

A GREAT game! The single player campaign is challanging, great story line, great weaponry. Mulitplayer is also great, and easily expandable with a plethora of Mod's (http://www.planetrainbowsix.com/damnr6/start.html is the best source). Highly recommend to anyone who likes strategical challanging.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ghist Recon Rules!
I think that Ghost Recon is the best Game which Tom Clancy has made. it has a realy fun and interising story line. Any one would want to play it, well not every body...
Any way i think this Game rules!
You shoud use Game Ranger with this as a type of battle.net
Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ghost Recon...best fps ever
I have the ghost recon desert siege pack, and it is great! The graphics are incredible and are realistic. And with gameranger you can play online and it is tons of fun. Also, with some mods you can get over 300 new guns and different levels. I HIGHLY reccomend this game to all gamers. ... 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.

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

5-0 out of 5 stars Jay Jay EARNS His Wings
What a wonderful word for a child to learn: EARN. With concerns about my nephew being given almost anything he reaches for I bought this for his birthday. At four he is starting to develop a concept about work equating reward. His favorite cartoon show Jay Jay has helped with this wonderful computer program where Jay Jay has several errands to run to EARN his new job. The math skills taught were presented in a way that my nephew was totally unaware that he was learning! I'm looking to buy more Jay Jay programs. this one has done the job and more.

5-0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS!!
Jay Jay is one of my almost-3-year-old son's favorite TV characters. My son is fascinated with basic math right now. When I found that it taught simple math addition and measurement, etc., I decided to pick it up right away. After we ran it on my son's computer, we were pleasantly surprised by the vivid animation and the quality of the games it offerred. Usually the drawings of the characters in a computer do not look as good as what you would see on TV, but this one is just as good. It even plays the theme song in the beginning. BUY THIS ONE!! Your kids will learn a lot from it, even though he may think he is just playing an interesting computer game. ... Read more
