Amazon.com Review

Never face another rained-out ball game with this stunning simulator just for kids. Backyard Baseball 2001 lets you manage your own team through sunshine, hail, and hurricane. Whether you want to enjoy a single pickup match or maneuver through an entire season, this game will let you put the players you want on the field of your choice before pitting them against the toughest young players the Major Leagues have to offer.

Play in Backyard Baseball 2001 can be as simple or as difficult as you want it to be. While it is definitely useful to know a few simple statistics about your team members, it is not required. During play, batters may choose between power hits, line drives, bunts, and grounders as they try to hit the fiendishly clever pitches of the opposition. Once a hit is made, players direct runners from base to base. Unlike the earliest baseball simulators, where many decisions were made by the computer, this one puts the user in control of everything, encouraging a good sense of baseball tactics and discouraging rash play. (Stealing bases with a player who is not a good runner, for example, is a quick road to an out!) When pitching, players select from a menu of pitches and then give the pitcher a target within the batter's box for their throw. A hit transfers play to a wider view of the field, so you can direct the ball to whichever base the runner is headed for.

Backyard Baseball 2001 is an upgrade of an earlier game, and players familiar with the original Backyard Baseball will find that it is very similar in design and structure. Your favorite players (and their color commentators) have been carried over wholesale from the first game, complete with the same signature animations as they come up to bat. At first glance, in fact, the program may seem like it hasn't been spruced up much at all. However, the newer game allows players to join Major League ball teams, such as the Toronto Blue Jays, or to create their own team names and uniforms. Players may recruit or play against youthful versions of current sports superstars, such as Mark McGwire and Tony Gwynn. They can even create customized team members to shore up weaknesses in their outfield or custom-tweak an even deadlier pitcher. Another very welcome upgrade is Internet play, which takes the players on the virtual road, pitting them against teams managed by other players online.

The game design in Backyard Baseball 2001 is absolutely stellar. The interface is easy to use and entertaining. The eight ball fields each come with advantages and disadvantages to be puzzled out and exploited. Players themselves come from a pleasingly multicultural palette with a good age, gender, and ability mix. This game also carries over and expands on the original Backyard Baseball's zany sense of humor: a drinking-box gauge shows how much "juice" the pitcher still has, the patter of the commentators is pleasing and surprisingly nonrepetitive, and successful play is rewarded with power-ups for both pitcher and batter. These power-ups are hilarious--a hot pitcher can throw Fireballs, for example, which literally burn as they zoom past the luckless batter. Batters who do manage to hit these special pitches earn the right to try Crazy Bunts, which carom randomly around the field, or the (literally) Screaming Line Drives.

Young baseball enthusiasts will love this program, which combines entertainment and sports education in seamless combination. So put your team together, suit up, and play ball! --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BASEBALL GAME OUT THERE, EVEN FOR GROWN-UPS!
If you want baseball on the computer, get this game. Backyard Baseball 2001 has 31 Major League stars as kids (2 from the Reds, 1 from each other team) and 30 other players that you can pick for your team. You can play as any MLB team or pick from a list of custom names. You can even create your own player! But the most surprising part of all is that on Backyard Baseball 2001, Frank Thomas is an amazing pitcher (even better than Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling). In fact, he is so amazing, I pitched a perfect game with him once! The only downsides of this game is that you can only pick 9 players for your team (no subs) and that there are some players that you can't pick for your team that other teams can pick. This game is so good, maybe I'm even gonna start a BYB2K1 webpage! Get this game. It's worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is a must
Backyard baseball teams up with Major League Baseball and The Major League Baseball Players Association to bring real-life baseball pros to the neighborhood baseball diamond...as kids! They have players from Mark McGwire to A-Rod,Ivan Rodriguez,Randy Johnson,Larry Walker,Chipper Jones,Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa,Ken Griffey Jr.,and much,much more! As well as all major league teams. And you can play people on the internet. Theres game modes like season,single game,and batting practice. Plus you not only get the game but you get baseball cards with the game and its a whole lot of fun for anyone.Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars They Should Make More Games Like This!
I've had this game for a long time now, and I've played it more than any other game I own and it's my all-time favorite game. It has tremendous replay value because of its wide selection of modes like single game, season, internet play, practice, and T-Ball mode. I especially like internet mode because it allows you to play with other kids on the net. Parents, don't worry! The internet mode is safe and secured and monitored by the company themselves! I say it is a great game because you can choose from 30 Backyard Baseball player kids and 31 MLB players as kids! That's 61 kids in all to choose for your team! Awesome! But that's not including the custom characters you can make! The controls are EASY! I never experienced anything that was so easy! Just point and click! There are many special pitches and batting types in the game, from spitballs to fireballs and from crazy bunts to aluminum power bats! The special pitches: spitball, fireball, corkscrew, big freeze, zig-zag, slo-mo, and elevator. The special batting types: crazy bunt, aluminum power, under-grounder, and screaming linedrive. Bottom Line: Get this game! It's GREAT! Tip: If you have the game, here's how you can play as Mr. Clanky, the untiring robot with sizzling pitches! Just point your mouse or controller on the robot at the main menu and click on him while holding the shift key!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game... for the younger kids
this is a very fun game. Great graphics, smooth gameplay, and, as i said, lots of fun! you can choose from a bunch of pros, such as arod, nomar, bonds, giambi, beltran, and sosa. and the backyard kids, like pablo sanchez, dante robinson, jocinda smith, etc.

but, as my title says, it's made for the younger kind. The game gets really easy really fast, and on the hard mode with errors off, i beat the other team 44-1.

I would borrow it from a friend, see how you like it, and go from there, but don't buy it right away.

4-0 out of 5 stars "You'rrrrre Out!"
This game consists of picking players for your team by learning a bit about each player, what they are good at or not good at in baseball. Then you can choose your team's name, colors, and whether to play one game or a season. You tell your pitcher what pitch to throw & where to throw it - or, if you are up to bat, you tell your player when to swing.
It is a fun game, however I strongly recommend it for ages 7 and up. There is some reading necessary - and you must be able to comprehend what defines a "good" baseball player. For the older child - it can be hours of entertainment - and satisfying when you pick a winning team! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a new kind of gameplay
I just bought Republic:Revolution yesterday, I have by no means gotten far enough in the game to explain it in great detail. I can say that I can tell if a game will be good, and this game like the editor's review pointed out, is very different then other games. This game is very real, the object of the gameplay is to overtake the president of a new free Russian state after the collapse of the soviet union, i have never seen a game so intense and real, the game is not action packed but it is more psychological and the game seems to have a mind of it's own.
If you are a person looking for a challenge in computer gaming i highly recomend this game.
I dont know where this game is headed, but if it lives up to the potential that I think it posseses, it will be a masterpiece.
In this game you actually feel like you are alive and lost in the game ready to defend yourself, ready to start a REVOLUTION! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Here's your chance to reunite online with the entire undersea gang.The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea brings Ariel, her daughterMelody, Sebastian, and all the other characters from the two Disney filmsstraight to your computer, in a package of games and activities certain toplease young players.

Return to the Sea features two arcade games--Melody's Daring Dive and TooCool!--and a trio of creativity-oriented activities. In the first game, Melodydives for jewels and pearls while dodging sharks and other hazards. In thesecond, she collects gems in an effort to thaw out a trident, which she mustthen use in battle with the nefarious Morgana. Both games are fast paced andwell designed, boasting 20 levels of difficulty. Unlike some games for this agegroup, these genuinely get harder, ensuring significant replay potential.

The noncompetitive activities include Aquabatics, where players design anunderwater dance show; Mermaid Memories, an interactive sticker book; andMelody's Melodies, a karaoke program featuring two songs from Disney's newestLittle Mermaid film. Setting up the routines in Aquabatics is a lot offun; players can flip and spin their favorite characters in a variety ofswimming twirls. Though almost all games for girls include a program likeMermaid Memories, the one featured in this game is put together extremely well.The backgrounds are flexible, the graphics meld seamlessly into the scenery, andplayers can even add sounds and movements to the scenes they create. Finally,Return to the Sea comes with a second CD-ROM, Ariel's StoryStudio, a gateway to even more undersea adventure.

The one real disappointment of this package is Melody's Melodies, which onlyfeatures two songs and a few simple options for singing them. Kids learning toplay musical instruments might also notice that the presentation of the musicisn't correctly laid out on the staff. However, the program's other delightsmore than compensate for this weakness. Broad enough in scope to ensure wideappeal, and of the highest quality to guarantee player entertainment, Returnto the Sea provides hours of fun for the whole family. --AlyxDellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dive Into A World Of Adventure With Melody!!
I LOVED IT!! I don't know what I would do without it. Now let me tell you about the CD-ROM. In the beginning, you type in your name and after that there is a magical pendant in the shape of a shell. It is open. The top half is games and the bottom half is the credits and stuff like that. Move your curser into the pendant and you will see something. When you click on it, it will take you to an activity.

My favorite game is Too Cool!! It is so much fun!! It is a little bit hard. In this game it's kind of like a maze. You try to gather all of the power crystals to melt the ice around the magical Trident & and zap Morgana through levels 3-20!! Tip: use your snowballs & mermaid potions. But be careful, Morgana only has a LIMITED number of mermaid potions, so don't waste them!!

In Melody's Daring Dive, you need to collect a certain number of gem's to have Melody make different types of jewelry. There are three places you
Can dive at. There's Hope Reef. This is the best place to go diving. Believe
Me I know!! Then there's Quaky Caverns. This is a little harder because there are rock avalanches, bubbles that could blow Melody off course, kelp
That could make you go slower, barracudas, and electric eels!! Then there's
The hardest and scariest of them all, Pirate Point. Here there are all the things that I mentioned before, plus octopuses (but not Morgana and Ursula), and sharks!! But don't worry. When you're riding a dolphin, you can pick
Up a cannon ball and drop it on the shark by hitting the spacebar. Then it will not return.

At Aquabatics, you can pick your own dance moves, designs to put the dancers and moves on, and dancers including Ariel, Melody & Flounder to put on your own show!! Tip the penguin and Dash the walrus are your hosts
in this fun game. You need to create six acts to make you own performance for the merpeople of Atlantica!!

In Mermaid Memories, you can create your own pictures to tell the story of The Little Mermaid 2: Return To The Sea, or just any pictures of the land and sea. You can add your own backgrounds, characters, props, even sounds!! And last, but most certainly not least, Melody's Melodies. Here you can sing along, sing by yourself, or record your own voice to 2 of the songs from the movie. One of them is "Down To The Sea", and the other is
"For A Moment". This isn't one of the better games in here, but if you love to sing like me, than this is the one for you.

This CD-ROM was way more than what I expected. Take my word for it. If you liked Ariel's Story Studio & The Little Mermaid Print Center, you will absolutely love this!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome game!
I loved this game. It's completely awesome. This game is wonderful for anyone who loves the Little Mermaid and games that take place in the water. The first game is Melody's Daring Dive and sports 3 levels. The first is Hope Reef which is easy. Next is Quakey Caverns which is a bit harder. An finally there is Pirate Point which is the hardest. The game is introduced by Sebastian. You need to help Melody collect gems below the sea while avoiding sharks, eels, and falling rocks. The next game is Too Cool and is introduced by Ariel. You need to help Melody collect gems in order to unfreeze the trident and zap Morganna. Tip and Dash throw snowballs for you to use to temporarily freeze Morganna and her cohorts. This is a great arcade style game that has twenty levels. The next game is Aquabatics which is introduced by Tip and Dash. This is my favorite game in which you get to organize an undersea dance extravaganza. You pick the dancers, the patterns, the stunts and the music. You can put up to five dancers in at a time. Your dancer choices are Ariel, Melody, Flounder, a turtle, and a dolphin. Next is the picture album where you get to make the scene. You pick the characters, backgrounds, sounds, props, and even special wallpapers. You can then print your picture. The last game is Melody's Melodies and is Karioke style. There are only two songs to choose from but it can be a great learning tool for people who want to learn how to play music as it shows all the notes on a standard staff paper setting. This game rocks and if you think it is only good for kids, let me tell you I am 26 and love it. It's well worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Down To The Sea We Go...
Forteen years ago, Walt Disney Pictures released the ever-popular, (will come out on DVD in 2004) The Little Mermaid. Then, ten years after that, they released the sequel, The Little Marmaid 2: Return to the Sea. Though it could never over-take the original popuarity-wise, it did score this great CD-ROM. Though maybe, & then maybe not, better than the original Little Mermaid CD, Ariel's Story Studio (see my review), this has five entertaining activities. First, there's Melody's Melodies. Here, you can sing all your favorite songs, with or without the characters. There's really not much else to tell about this one, so let's move on. In Aquabatics, you choreograph your own underwater play, with some of your favorite characters, sea turtles, dolphins, Flounder, (how'd he get in there?) and much more! Then, in Mermaid memories, you can create your own sticker-book, and decoraate the pages with scenes from The Little Mermaid 2! I alwayas loved those kinds of games. Next, we have Melody's Daring Dive. Here, help Melody collect jewels, pearls, and all sorts on good things. You better watch out though, for as you progress through levels, it gets harder to find things, you have to go up to get air more often, and there's the ever-looming danger of sharks. Finally, we come to the "piece of resistence." Too Cool! is a maze game where you have to collect crystals to melt the ice surrounding the trident. Once you free the trident, you have to use it to chase after and, oh, how can I put this... FRY Morgana! This game is especially fun, and even more enjoyable and/or challenging as you progress. Overall, this is a great game, but the movie is not as good as the CD-ROM, though. Well, that's it. I hope this Review has helped you annd encourages you to get this CD-ROM.

4-0 out of 5 stars the best of the bunch
This came in a pack with three other princess games. Of the four it is the best with enough different activities to keep the kids amused. There is diving for gems, which has you diving down and having to collect air bubbles to breath while you also pick up gems until you have enough. An arcade type in too cool, a sticker game where you make a picture and the singing which only has two tunes that you can play. The last and probably most interesting was designing the dances and then watching the show, then are several dance patterns that you can add different movements too and two mermaids and three sea creatures that you can choose to dance.
Overall its quite a good game.

5-0 out of 5 stars We love it!
After Little Mermaid, my two girls couldn't get enough of this swimmer. We've had so much use of this CD that it is worn out and will be purchasing another. My 5 yr old especially loves the chase around the iceberg game. The 3 yr old just loves seeing Melody during any of the games and hearing her voice. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Software is fine, Company quality is the question
I had purchased this item and found out later that one of the three cd-roms was bad. The company ran me around in circle for weeks try this and try that. I found the one file on the cd-rom was bad. They now wanted more than what I had paid for it to exchange the cd-rom. Long story short, I finnally got a new cd-rom for the free. Just check out their product carefully and save your receipts and packaging so that it can be returned if you have a problem.

My kids love the games, but were a little upset by having to wait almost three months for Pajama Sam.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent software at a great price
This is another great Humongous software collection. Each of the titles has sold individually for the price of this set. My children (3 & 7)love the games. The titles offer fun for my kids with the benefit of helping them develop critical thinking and computer user skills. You will not be disappointed in this collection. They will be entertained for hours playing with Freddi, Sam and PuttPutt. You will probably have to pry them off the family computer just so you can use it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Humongous Heros Three Pack
In this collection of Humongous Entertainment games featuring Freddi Fish, Putt-Putt, and Pajama Sam, you get three games for the price of one! In Putt-Putt Travels through Time, Putt-Putt must find his things and dog, Pep, because they've been sucked through a time machine. In Freddi Fish 3, Freddi and her pal, Luther have to figure out who took the conch shell from the festival. In Pajama Sam 2, Pajama Sam is afraid of Thunder and Lightning, two sisters who run the weather, so he goes up to stop them. All three teach kids problem solving skills, have built-in strategy guides (Windows F1 during gameplay, Mac you have to look for it on your computer). They also change every time you play.

2-0 out of 5 stars Arcade port for Mac
Driving simulations, thanks to today's fast personal computers are very realistic...but this isn't one of them. Total Immersion Racing (TIR) is a Mac/PC version of an arcade game and it looks like it and drives like it. Think PlayStation and you have the right idea. Try the free download demo version before you buy.

For a much more realistic driving experience (a $55-$100 USB steering wheel and pedals set really is a necessity) try $20 'NASCAR Racing Season 2003' (NASCAR) or $30 'F1 Championship Season 2000' (F1CS2K). Don't let the dates make you think these simulations are old-they refer to the tracks, cars and drivers from that year.

NASCAR cars are big, heavy and powerful. The sim does an amazing job of modeling the feel of drifting and sliding; you really can steer with throttle and weight shift. Instant replays are fun to watch, and the program even includes a limited editor so you can create your own movie with highlights using several different camera angles. The sound of the big V8s really adds to the fun, and for you hot-rodders out there you can tweak just about everything about the cars to try to scrape another .1 second off your lap time. Online racing against drivers on your LAN or around the world on the Web is also possible too. A downloadable demo is available free from various sites, but they're huge at 100+ gigabytes, so unless you have DSL or cable modem just let Amazon sell you one. You'll be glad you did.

F1CS2K cars are small, light, very nimble and very fast. With a force feedback steering wheel you can feel the road better than with NASCAR, indeed you can even feel the rumble strips at the apex of a turn and the wheel gets loose when you're briefly airborne over a rise. To drive fast you MUST practice, and the drivers' school, which is very demanding, really helps improve your skill. F1CS2K is, in my opinion more realistic than NASCAR, but it's also the hardest to drive well and thus-for my money-the more enjoyable. But I still drive NASCAR periodically, just because the big cars are fun in their own macho noisy way. Once you're turning respectable laps on a Grand Prix track (my favorite is Spa in the mountains) try it again in the rain! Very humbling even with the "grip" set-up. LAN and on-line racing also available with dozens of pre-established cars and set ups and thousands of possible combinations, as with NASCAR, if you want to tweak things yourself. You can save a loop of the last 20-120 minutes of driving at each track for instant replays depending on how much disk space you have (min. 500Mb but none required to drive). Free download demo also available on the Web.

My Logitech Momo Racing USB steering wheel and pedals set work very well with TIR, NASCAR, and F1CS2K. If you have an older, slower computer go for the NASCAR sim which has more 'low end' graphics options. But with any G4 or G5 Mac both NASCAR and F1CS2K will bring you amazing graphics, realistic handling, lots of fun and, if you enjoy them as much as I do, hours of lost sleep.

BTW, if you ever thought a couple of beers doesn't effect your driving, have a couple and watch what happens to your lap times. Very sobering.

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is Really good
I just recieved this game about 2 weeks ago and it is so cool. The AI is just superb its really advanced. Ive been hooked on it and i must say its not for everyone its for someone who 1. loves race cars 2. loves racing games 3. someone who wants to race cars such as the Audi TT, Mclaren F1, And lemans like prototyope Bentley its really good. the cars are cool. The tracks are real world tracks. Some of its a bot wierd but its really goos u have gotta get it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best race game for the Mac
Buy this game, this is what we in the Mac community have been waiting for.

The physics model is realistic, the cars each have their own handling characteristics and the tracks require a certain amount of finess attainable with a little practice. The graphics are somewhere between Gran Tourismo 2 and 3. The sound is different for each car and the realism is exciting.

I always found the Formula 1 race from Feral to be a little too difficult to drive with out most driving assistants turned on. TIR on the other hand is more forgiving when driver errors knock you off the track. You can still recover and get back in the race with out having the computer assist you in braking, turning, etc.

I hope Feral continues to support this game with new tracks and cars. My G5 does sometimes start to drop frames when the action is fast but that's on a 19" monitor with 256Mb RAM. Hopefully upgrading the RAM will help.

This is the new standard in Mac racing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not For the Race Car Impared

Amazon.com Review

After making a name for himself with horror classics such as TheDamnation Game novel, The Books of Blood short-story collection, andthe feature films Hellraiser and Candyman, Clive Barker has slowlymoved away from the horror genre toward more fantasy-centric work. Barker hasn'tcompletely forgotten about his first love, however, and Clive Barker'sUndying, a first-person action game from Electronic Arts and DreamWorksInteractive, beautifully captures the type of horrors that populated Barker'searliest works. And not only is this game genuinely frightening, it's also a lotof fun to play.

Cast against the backdrop of Ireland in the year 1923, Undying followsPatrick Galloway, an investigator of the paranormal. Galloway has been summonedto Ireland by his old war buddy Jeremiah Covenant to put an end to the strangeoccurrences at the Covenant family estate. What Galloway finds is a house ofhorrors that is populated with Jeremiah's dead siblings (and other ghastlycreatures), all of whom want to snuff out Jeremiah so they can complete a spellcast when they were children.

Graphically, Undying is first rate. The Unreal Tournament graphicsengine has been used to great effect and the result is amazing character modelsand environments. The haunted mansion is suitably dark, with wispy draperies andmacabre paintings. The estate's grounds are a mix of lush Irish countryside andcrumbling ruins, all set against vivid skies.

Pretty pictures aside, the most impressive thing about Undying is itsatmosphere--this game is flat-out scary. Every element of the game, be it thegothic architecture, eerie story, great weather effects including rain andlightning, or amazing sound effects, perfectly complement each other. The resultis a gameplay experience that rivals the Resident Evil series in terms ofgenerating sheer terror in the player.

The great atmosphere isn't Undying's only innovation--it also features avery cool two-handed attack system. Most action games saddle the player with anattack system where one hand controls all the weapons and the other hand doesnothing. In Undying, the left hand (and left mouse button) controls thestandard weapons, such as the pistol and shotgun, while the right hand (andright mouse button) casts spells. This is a great gameplay device and ensuresthe action stays at a frantic pace.

Of all the spells in the game, the coolest is the Scrye spell. When cast, itlets the player see and hear past events--some of which are quitehorrific--andoccasionally it shows you how to progress beyond a certain level. This help cancome in the form of highlighting certain objects or unveiling a portal, butwhatever the method it is a very well-designed gameplay element.

The only real complaints with Undying involve the long loading timesbetween levels and the system requirements, but even those aren't enough toderail this excellent--and terrifying--action game. --Kilmic Robbins

Pros:

  • Very, very creepy
  • Amazing sound effects
  • Excellent graphics
  • Slick controls
Cons:
  • Long loading times
  • Story is a little convoluted

5-0 out of 5 stars underappreciated
this game had so-so sales (usually a better idea than reviews of how much one will like it), and i didnt do it right after it arrived. yet this is one of the best games i have done. its good and long, in addition to being scary, though familiarity will dull the surprise of the monsters. the disgusting sky lizards, floor squids, and the vile land fish will give your back chills. howling dogmen will make you jump out of your seat, and these are only some of the nonhuman(oid) opponents. the weapon list is diverse and a little far fetched, but certain monsters are very susceptible to specific weapons and spells.

even on easy, there were places that needed to be played over and over to discover the boss's weak spot. most could not be approached with pure firepower. puzzles are few, but there are side trips that end in finding valuable amplifiers (of spells) and mana wells which increase your ability to use these spells. these side paths are often difficult to find or are well guarded. of note, there are many places where you cant just kill all the monsters and then go on; if you just sit there, the game will keep throwing monsters at you, and only if you progress through the horde will they stop coming. there were several times i spent an hour fruitlessly trying to fight monsters or bad guys only to realize the solution was to run.

there are several magical levels, such as a floating sky city and an attractive but perilous mountain glen, but the best is the ancient monastery. in addition to being able to produce effective mood, these environments allow special spells such as increased jumping ability. one will find plenty of medikits; i had > 200 before encountering the last bosses, and spell enhancement is plentiful as well. this game ran very well in OSX without crashes, freezes, or slowdowns. many people have complained about loading as the game progresses from room to room. Although frequent, loads lasted 6-8 seconds; anyway, i was reloading much more frequently from deaths.

all in all, this was an exciting, engrossing game that commanded my attention the whole way through and one of the best games i have done, especially at its cheap price. this game should be bought 1) for days of top notch entertainment and 2) to encourage the availability of more games for mac.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting and exciting gameplay..
First, let me start by saying I am a game playing novice. That being said, this game is a GREAT value[]. The six levels provide great "gameplay variety": there is fighting, climbing, swimming involved. The second level, the monastery, is an especially creative level.

Potential negatives are linear gameplay---although this ensures a lower skilled player (like myself) doesn't get too frustrated because of their ineptudes.

Unlike some reviewers, I enjoyed the variety of weapons in the game. The scyre is a particularly effective weapon.

The game is scary.

5-0 out of 5 stars atmosphere
I've played a few of these FPS type games, and after just starting Undying, this has become one of my favorites. Why? The atmosphere this game creates is superb - there is no background music on the first level, just creaky floors, the wind moaning in the background, the occasional scream as the help is attecked and killed. Very cool, and for 10 bucks, a terrific bargain. As noted by others, it plays well on G3 Macs with less than 32 MB of vram, a refreshing change from the latest wave of games.

2-0 out of 5 stars Yawn
Very boring. Very tedious. Very predictable. Now, add your own adjective: Very ______________ (anything negative you put here will describe this game).

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny!
A great game with excellent graphics. It's an awesome thrill ride that keeps your heart pumping and your wallet full. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Am I missing Something?
My boys (ages 5/6) could not get past level one on this game. Some of the items that needed to be found, never made their appearance. I even tried. Perhpas we got a bad copy.
I must say from a parent's point of view the music drove me nuts!!! Same little tune, played over and over....it never changes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Endless fun
My six and nine year olds have a blast with this. At first they were a bit confused about what to do but once they figured it out they loved it. There are different scenarios, much like the Freddi Fish games so it is never boring.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun Camping Adventures
Our 4 year old has had a blast playing this game. It is loads of fun exploring around the campsite, climbing up (and sliding down) Mount Rockslide, and looking for helpful objects which will allow The Brain to construct a signalling device.

There are simple, yet challenging activities, like constructing a tent, which have been fun, and all of the Arthur characters, with their trademark personalities are there to help. ... Read more

SINCE THE FIRST DAY I GOT THIS SOFTWARE, I WAS HOOKED. THE BEST PART OF IT IS IT DOESN'T COST ME ANYTHING TO PLAY THE SLOTS THAT
ARE SO MUCH FUN TO PLAY. IT MAKES ME LAUGH AND IT'S ENTERTAINING
ALSO. I WOULD SUGGEST THIS SOFTWARE TO ALL WHO LIKE PLAYING THE VIDEO SLOTS OR NICKEL SLOTS. IT'S FUN.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's ok...but there are better ones
This cd rom slot style is an alright game just as long as you don't have anything else to play. If you have any others, they would be more interesting than this one. The game has some fun bonus rounds but there are not that many. My advice is to find something else like Reel Deal Slots Nickel Alley. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fabulous for my 5-year old
I bought this for my five-year-old son last Christmas, and he's been playing it ever since. It has three difficulty levels that keep it fresh over time. Very nicely done!

3-0 out of 5 stars entertainment that is quickly run through
I got this to span the gap in my kids ages. WHile officially set for 5-8, my 7yr old got thru the highest level of difficulty in one afternoon and my 3yr old son is now on it after a few weeks. WHile fun for them, it is hardly educational. This is just an elaborate puzzle that walks thru OZ, and in that it is very very good. Alas, however, I wanted something more. I think the DK does a lot of the absolute best sorftware and books for kids and we bought a bunch of it this xmass. Apparently my expectations for the medium are too high.

Recommended as entertainment. I guess it is a good deal, given the outrageous prices we pay for movies these days. But I confess that I think we can do better. Much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oz, a Magical Educational Adventure!
Oz the Magical Adventure is a wonderful educational trip down the yellow brick road. My mom bought this game for my autistic brother and he loves it. The games are entertaining, the characters are wonderful and the animation is highly enjoyable.
This adventure puts you into the story of "The Wizard of Oz". But something has gone terribly wrong. The Wicked Witch has sent one of her flying monkeys to capture Dorothy and Toto. As Dorothy and Toto are carried away from the yellow brick road Glinda the good witch of the South appears to tell the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Lion to keep going to the Emerald City. Once in the throne room of the Emerald City, the Wizard of Oz tells the three companions he will grant their wishes if they rescue Dorothy, kill the Wicked Witch, and bring Dorothy back as proof. He gives you a medallion which will open the door to the witches castle. It's missing nine jewels. The jewels are hidden all around Oz. Your objective now is to help the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Lion find the jewels and get to Dorothy and Toto. Now it's up to you to save Dorothy, Toto, and all of Oz from the Wicked Witch of the West.
This game is based on the original book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum, not the movie with Judy Garland. The game brings out characters from the book, characters from other Oz books, and new characters that are equaly lovable. You must journey with the Tin Man, Sacarecrow, and Lion to locations in Oz such as the Land of the Munchkins, the Land of the Winkies, and the Country of the Quadlings. In each land there are three games. Between each land there are mini games. Some are to transport you between the lands and some are for plain entertainment and don't have any purpose other than that. There are 15 games total.
The games all teach basic logic and directions. For example: In the Land of the Munchkins you must help a juice lady to recover her memory that the wicked witch has stolen. You must listen to her instructions to make a fruity drink that will help her recover and she might be able to tell you where a jewel is hidden. In the land of the Quadlings you must set the water pipes right or the jewel will be stuck. To reset the pipes you need to dircect the colored pipes in different directions so the water will flow the right way.
The games are very educational and entertaining. The animation is brilliant. It really brings Oz to life. The Lion, Tin Man, and Scarecrow are always at your side and interact with you so you're never alone. Before each game starts you can select levels (Bronze: Easy, Silver: Medium, Gold: Hard). And after each game you can either quit or choose another level and start over. The game really makes you feel like you've fallen into the book and met all the characters. Me and my mom taught my brother how to play each game. He eventually learned to play the games all by himself. We're hoping he will soon progress to the next level. This game provides really good challenges for 4-8 year olds. The game is always changing so it doesn't get boring quickly. I highly recommend it.
So put on your magic slippers, grab your basket, get your dog, and head down the magical yellow brick road for an unforgetable journey through Oz. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Slick but a bit buggy--and not that much fun
Nicely done and a good bit of variety, but we found it buggy in places (wrong answers, mostly). It's also quite hard for a first-grader: from the second level on up it's got tough multiplication and and three-digit subtraction. More to the point, the six-year-old proclaimed it boring, and I have to agree.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad
My six year old got this game last year and loved it. It's a lot of fun, but only marginally educational. I think the Jumpstart series is much better. He does have fun with it though, and it does help reinforce skills such as math and geography. It doesn't help much in the language arts area. ... Read more

when i wrote this review the requirements for the game weren't listed. So for anyone who wanted them besides me here they are

Minimum System Requirements:
* Power Macintosh G3/233 MHz
* 64 MB Ram
* MAC OS 8.6 or later.
* OpenGL video display
* Multiple button mouse recommended

4-0 out of 5 stars The only thing you have to fear is....Everything!
You may think that FPS (first person shooters) can't possibly be scary. This game takes that and all other comments against the fear a game can create, and lets an Alien tear it to shreads. When I say that this game is freaky, I dont fool around. For the three species you play, (human-marine, Xenomorph-Alien and the ever scary Preadator), you feel the fear that is incorporated with the fool you play. As a marine, you tangle with cloaked Preds (preadator) and Aliens poping out of nowhere. As an alien, you try to survive a downpour of bullets and are only rewarded with a very hard to kill Pred. And as the overspecalized hunter, you find that aliens are on you in a split second and marines can riddle your carcase with lead faster than that. The biggest frea factor is that all the enemies are places and apear randomly with very fiew exeptions. The only problem is that there are no times where you are with others in a group. As the marine, you are alone with no other help from other marines. And like the marine, an Alien is in the center of it's hive with not even a facehugger to keep you company. (BTW, preds always hunt alone ;p ) Take that away and you get a fun (but scary) game that would recive a full complement of stars. Happy Hunting ;p

4-0 out of 5 stars not so clear...
let me geuss you have seen the aliens, and predator movies but whonder if this game would peek your intrest will you may be disipointed some campains with a certion spices (predator) may be the only species and campaions youd be intresed in altought i'm a alien type of guy the cheap form of combat seem to make me happy. but this game my not intrest thought who like seeing enemy's hole and not in peices when shot. altought the outher spises whould be most intresting when in combat. but there is no such thing as being bored...

enjoy the graphic nature of extreme action...

5-0 out of 5 stars the best game EVER
If you don't own this game buy it now. If you dont own a computer, buy one and then buy this game.
Pros-
Great graphics

Skirmish means the game never gets old
Cons-
Hefty system requirements

3-0 out of 5 stars Game is OK
I thoght that this game was going to be great.One of the options i was really excited about was skirmish mode, but it turns out that you can only be a predator and marine instead of an alien. But I love the multiplayer mode. that is why this gets a three. ... Read more
