4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Chess Companion
Designed for the chess lover in need of a challenge! Chessmaster 6000 provides hours of pleasure. Although it is ideal for intermediate to veteran players, beginners can learn to play with the wealth of tutorials. The best bet is to have someone teach you the very basics, then use CM6000 to hone your skills.

CM6000 provides "personalities" (complete with photos and bios!) of various skill, ability, and style for hours of challenge. Of course, the masters, like Fischer and Spassky, as well as the Chessmaster himself, are present and accounted for.

As with other incarnations of CM, the chessboards (ranging from traditional to contemporary and beyond) are beautifully rendered.

Overall, Chessmaster 6000 is very well worth it to any Mac gamer in search of a good game of chess, or just wanting to learn more about the game.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Much of an Improvement
This game is not for the serious chess enthusiast. If you enjoy a challenging match, you may be better off playing a three-year old than purchasing this game. If you already have another version of this game, like 2000, stick with it!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Chessmaster!
This is by far the best chessmaster game.There's near 100 players with all sorts of ratings,around 200 to about 2300.
For all chess fans this is by far the best chess game you can find,and you can improve your chess skills too.So there you go,chess friends.6000 is one brilliant chess computer game. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Super for kids age 2 - 4
I hadn't noticed this game because I find most Disney software to be lesser quality than several other brands; but then I read that Disney contracted Hulabee to design this program and I immediately purchased it. My four-year-old daughter who is an avid educational game player loved it. She finished it in less than an hour. The graphics are excellent; the game's design is Hulabee quality--both engaging and rich in problem solving education. The only problem was it was too easy for my girl. I recommend it for ages 2-4. However, despite it being too easy, by daughter continues to play it. It's a hit!

4-0 out of 5 stars Little Piglet, BIG Job
Piglet's Big Game is based on the movie, but has nothing in common with it. (Except for the title) This game is all about how Rabbit & his friends are going on a picnic, and Rabbit needs Piglet's help to go and gather ingredients for his soup, such as acorns, vegetables, pepper, "hunny", etc. Although, Rabbit thinks that Piglet is too small for such a big job. So Piglet sets out to prove himself. Along all of the winding paths & such, you will find acorns, needed for the soup. You need 10, but you can keep some extra ones... for a snack. You will encounter fun activities, such as The Pond Maze, Sorting Spices, Eeyore's Painting (my fave), and much more. This game is made by Hullabee Entertainment, which is the same company that made Mike's Monsterous Adventure. Really this game is just Mike for a younger audiance, but this has more activities and, when you love the Pooh gang, you just can't resist. You must be thinking to yourselves, if I liked this so much, why did I give it 4 stars? Well, they won't let you skip through the dialogue that you might already know about, and that can get annoying. But it's not that big a deal. Well, that's it. I hope this review has helped you and encourages you to get this CD-ROM.

4-0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet
This is worth the purchase. The graphics are good, and the story is cute - but it only took about 40 minutes for me and my 5-year old to complete. He hasn't played it since completing it. The ending was a little disappointing - there's really not much to do after collecting the needed materials for the big soup. But again, it was cute, a nice tie in with the movie, and a good amount of fun for straight 30-40 minutes. Child could complete almost entirely on his own. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Teacher Recommended!
I teach kids on a K-4 level and they all love this game! Phonics, letter reconision, even ABC order. My students fight over this one. Better for younger students/children just learning to read or with a minimum reading background.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good choice for learning letter
My 3-year-old son really enjoys this. It's easy to navigate, colorful and fun. AND it does a nice job of teaching ABC basics.

3-0 out of 5 stars disney reading abc/disney math 123
The six demo discs mentioned in a review were not sent with my order nor is there any indication that they will be coming. Also the disc appears to be the same as a previous disc I purchased entitled Disney's ready for Reading/Math. This is a great disc, but reviews and titles were deceiving which accounts for my disappointment.

5-0 out of 5 stars A One Hundred Acre Wood Full Of ABC Fun!!!
Winnie The Pooh ABC's is a wonderful, educational way to learn, and have fun with Pooh. ABC's is adopted from the original Ready To Read With Pooh, but even if you already have that, it will still be a blast. As you begin Pooh will greet you with his cheerful "Here We Go Floating" song. Then, he will land right in front of your tree house, and he will say so. After which, Gofur will give you one of his mailboxes and you get to put your name on it.
(Be sure to check your mail every time you come back to your tree house, because there will be letters from Pooh's friends that you can print.) Every direction around the tree house will be a game. To the west, there is Roo's Sandy Pit. Roo wants to play with his friends, but they are all to busy. So, Tigger makes friends from the sand for Roo to play with. Now it's time to imagine. First, you pick a sand friend, then an object from the sand, and then
Roo will imagine the rest. He likes to imagine at least five times, so you will keep track with flowers by the sand pit. Afterwards, Gofur will dig up a hole from the pit and reveal your prize. Take my word for it, this is the best game in the CD-ROM. If you go in an eastish direction, you will find Tigger's Jack In The Boxies. Tigger wants to play with all his jack in the boxies, but he forgot to label all of them to tell what sound they make. That's going to be your job. You need to click on all of the boxies, and see what sound they make. Then you need to take the letter off of a log and put it on that boxie. After that the boxie will open and show you something that starts with that letter. After all four sets are complete, then another boxie will drop from the sky. Gofur will be in it with your prize. Finally, if you head "due north, by northwoodly", you will come to the game Eeyore's Book. It was another blustery day in the Hundred Acre Wood, and poor Eeyore's book was torn to shreds. It is up to you to put all the pictures back on each page. There are twenty-six pages on level one, and twelve on levels two and three. After each book is fixed, Eeyore will give you bookmarks to print and color, and the prize from Gofur will be the book that you completed. Speaking of prizes, you're probably wondering where they are going. Well, back to your tree house of course. Prizes will appear on the outside and inside of your tree house.

So far it sounds like a great game, but wait it gets better. Also included are six, that's right, six demo games. There's Winnie The Pooh Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten. The same with Mickey Mouse. In Pooh Toddler and Mickey Toddler, help Pooh and friends get down to the ground after hanging on balloons, and help Minnie look for shapes all around her house. Toddlers don't even have to click to play most of it!!! Then, in Pooh Preschool and Mickey Preschool, help Pooh think of words to say to the magic tree to hear it in a different language, and help Goofy make 100 percent goof cars. Finally in Pooh Kindergarten and Mickey Kindergarten, make Tigger act out actions using wacky sentences, and learn the alphabet while keeping Goofy falling off the edge of a not-yet-completed building. Other titles in the Winnie The Pooh Learning Series include Pooh 123's, Spelling, Ready To Read, Ready For Math, Preschool, Toddler, and Kindergarten. You think I'm done? Yes, I am. Well that's it. I hope this review has helped you and encourages you to get this CD-ROM. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars games too short and too easy
"Max and the Haunted Castle", "Max and the Secret Formula", and "Max and the Pirates"
The games were too easy for my 4 1/4 yr old. She finished finding the hidden items (12 socks in the Castle; 7 numbers in the Secret Formula) very quickly and then there was really nothing else (fun/educating) to do. The Max games have the potential to be much more popular with children if Tivola would add more things to do/more stories; make them more difficult/challenging. I gave it 2 stars because it does have potential (my daughter liked Max and his inventor Uncle, Pong). Tivola has a great thing here if they would just improve upon it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars THESE GAMES ARE WONDERFUL
These Games are a wonderful value. Diane is right, there is no immediate gratification, you do have to sit and listen to a story for a minute or two, (something preschoolers should be learning to do anyway to ready themselves for kindergarten.) THe stories are charming, and my young children ages three and five have absolutely no problem understanding the accents. We are from the midwest, where they do not often hear English accents, but they listen and are able to follow. The value here is spectacular. Three games for half the price of one game is right, and they are very special relaxing, and thoughtful adventures that my kids love. They are not "zombified" by these games, they laugh out loud and talk to each other, talk to Max, and Uncle Pong. They LOVE the surprises. These are not like other games they have played. They learn to use thier logical thinking, and deduction, they learn cause and effect. These games are spectacular. I don't know where the first reviewer is coming from, and it makes me sad to think that some kids will miss out on these fun and charming games after reading her thoughtless review.
I REALLY hope you don't listen to the first review, because these games are a terrific value and will become favorites for your kids!

5-0 out of 5 stars Tivola programs are great for my kids.
Tivola's Max games are wonderful for my two boys. They are very funny and thought provoking. My kids have SO MANY pre-school games and educational cd's that are from here in the states. These are a welcome change from the lot of games that feature boldly colored circus goofs that quite frankly, bore the heck out of my kids and end up teaching them little. I got a Tivola demo with the Little Prince and popped it in for my 2 and 5 year olds. They were interested right away. The games are not dificult,and my children have no trouble with the accents. Tivola gets my applause for subtlety, and the non-commercial format. They make gentle games, which to my amazement, suit my two (very) rowdy boys.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money!!
My 3-year-old daughter has discovered the computer recently, so I've been trying to find some inexpensive yet educationally fun software for her. While the price seemed right on this one, that was where the fun ended! Don't waste your money, even if it doesn't seem like much. True, you get 3 games, but they all stink. My daughter doesn't understand anything they say because of their thick accents, and the little movie clips go on FOREVER. By the time she can finally participate, she's totally lost interest. (I don't blame her....yawn!) The games come with absolutely no directions. All in all, these Max games are a waste of money and time. (She loves Dora the Explorer!)

5-0 out of 5 stars 3 Great Adventures, 1 Fantastic Value!
First of all, this is a SUPER value! Three very charming, cute, and engaging games for half the price of one! Max is a lovable character, and these games, with their hand-painted, storybook quality are enchanting. I recommend these if you are looking for something that is not as fast-paced, violent, or tacky as many of the more commercial titles that seem to make up the majority of the children's market. These are beautiful and unique CD-ROMS that young kids will definitely enjoy. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun and entertaining game!
There is not all that much change in the difficulty of questions,making it seem like the 4th edition,rather than a Kids edition,and still missing sound effects in the show that the 1st and 2nd edition games had,why did it's publisher do that? Aside from that this is a great game for all ages,and I like that you can get codes from the web-site for unlimited lifelines,and Regis seems a little more perked up compared to the 3rd edition. The fastest finger is like on the show,and question difficulty (compared to the show) is a little bit more on track for a change compared to past editions,and another good reason to get this game is IT PLAY's IN FULL SCREEN!! About time...the last few Millionaire games play the size of a post-card in the middle of your screen,for the hefty-price tags on these games,you should at least be able to read the questions! Anyways this has to be the best edition in the series yet.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected
Well, I bought this game thinking that it would be really easy kid questions that kids can answer, that weren't that tough. After buying the game and playing it I figured out that the questions were really hard. Some questions my mom couldn't figure out. I would recomend this game if you like hard questions with an occasional easy question.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but HARD
This is a really fun game!! But some of the questions are hard! When our relitives came to our house for Christmas, it took them probably at least several hours and at least two times starting over before they finally got it. I think the questions are aimed at kids that are about 10, 11. But still, this is a fun game. I would recommened it!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for Sensitive Children
My 8 year old son was so looking forward to this game, and likes to play it because he likes answering the questions to see how high he can get, but he's wound up in tears over the nasty comments made by Regis (paraphrase - "It's OBVIOUS the correct answer is 'c' - DUH!"), and is frustrated when tricks not found on the show like the phone a friend person not being home fouls up the game. Perhaps older children or ones that are less sensitive may find this funny, but if your child is sensitive at all or you are trying to teach your child good sportsmanship, I would definitely not recommend this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for kids and adults to play together!
This is a wonderful cd-rom. My daughter and I have so much fun playing each other. She is learning so much. We played the one we have so much that is is scratched and she has begged me to order another one. I would recommend it to anyone. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Disapointed an avid fan!
Being an avid fan of 4x4 Evolution (the original), I figured I would love 4x4 EVO 2. I was quite a master at the first one, finally able to beat most of the races. So I jumped into 4x4 EVO 2. What a mistake. This game is SO tough. I have already been playing for a month and I have yet to win a race, yet I do everything the same as I did in the first version that won me the races. I travel straight, keep my wheels on the ground, avoid obstacles, turn carefully as to not scrub speed, yet everytime I am racing I get passed like I am standing still no matter what I am driving. Then to make it worse, everytime I hit even the slightest obstacle with my 14" lift and 37" race tires, I come to a screeching halt while other drivers seem to bounce right off it. Then if they hit me (which they always do because they can't drive and keep a line) it sends me into boulders or trees or whatever, but if I hit them, they simply get right back onto track going even faster than before. I think this game has some serious AI issues to work out. Maybe in the next version they should have multiple levels (like beginner, amateur, ace, pro or something) and make it a little easier to win every once in a while. I used to play the original for hours at a time, but with 4x4 EVO 2, I make it through 3 races in 3rd or 4th place and I quit. Then I go back into 4x4 EVO and play and I can win again. The graphics are good, the sounds could be improved, but are fair, and I like the additions to the game play (such as missions and teams). I wish that this could be geared a little more toward the beginner as I see plenty of people could become easily frustrated and ditch the game as I have. But at least the game company made their money, right?

1-0 out of 5 stars 4x4 Evolution 2 RIP-OFF
I guess I expect for games to work correctly when I pay good money for them. This game would barely install...took 45 minutes!!! When I finally got it installed, it wouldn't play, it just kept trying to reinstall. After repeated efforts, I finally got it installed. Once it begins to play, it has many glitches...like an old LP that skips over and over. If my son has to leave the computer to go to the bathroom, the game shuts down and you have to go through reinstalling it again. I am terribly dissatisfied with this game! I wish I had my money back.

2-0 out of 5 stars a duplicate of the 1st one-----14 year old race fan
Where do I begin. This game CLAIMS to have LOTS OF UPGRADES and TRUCKS, it does, but there's only about 8 NEW UPGRADES, and they GOT RID OF FORD. I'm not a FORD fan, but FORD has some cool trucks. Also, WHERE ARE THE BIG TRUCKS?! No 2500 models (except SUV's)They had LEXUS in this game but NO HEAVY DUTY TRUCKS! There are some NEW CARRER MODES, and THEY DO HAVE JEEP, but thats the only reason I gave this game 2 stars. The CHASE CAMERA changes angles, if you go slow; it's like your LOOKING AT YOUR FEET. If you go to fast it becomes difficult to see your truck. They had a bumper view and a a blimp view also, but that's it. If you'r just going to use cheats than this can be a great game, but you can't use the MONSTER TRUCK in career till GMC likes you. It's to HARD TO WIN also. All the other racers are always 1 foot ahead of you, they have faster and heavyer cars too. However, your truck does get dirty and you do get to wash it. This is just my opinion, it really isn't too bad with cheats, but if you stink at racing, stay away from the race menu on this game. One good game is CABELLAS' 4X4 OFF-ROAD ADVENTURE. That game is easy enough you won't really need cheats, and hardenough you wont be board any time soon. Thank's for taking the time to read this. Sep.23, 2002

Not a bad game to pass the seedy early hours of the morning, but well Mc'Craig kicks this youngsters game!

I paid for the First Edition of 4x4 Evo, and got an unfinished game. The game was fun and occasionally playable, but the release was riddled with bugs that made things like opening a saved game impossible. When the patch was released to fix the unfinished product it was a PC only patch. I hope Aspyr has gotten better with 4x4 2, but I feel totally ripped off by the original version of the game... ...

There is trouble in Townsville. Mojo Jojo has devised a terrible plan: he has successfully created robot clones of himself that contain knowledge from his own brain, and he has sent them into the streets and to the underground in Townsville to destroy the town. The clones, however, are capable of being overthrown. Help the Powerpuff girls capture and defeat the clones using learning power to unlock rewards by completing activities and collecting the clones' memory chips, and ultimately saving Townsville from Mojo Jojo's evil and villainous plans.

By completing the five learning activities, children will develop their math and reading skills, logic and problem-solving abilities, critical thinking and analysis skills, and their ability to follow directions. The CD-ROM is aimed at children ages 6 to 10, which covers a large range of abilities. To accommodate this range, five levels of difficulty have been built into the program. Progress is automatically remembered, and can be monitored. There are also printouts available: choose from 25 activities including crossword puzzles, colouring, word searches, and more. On hand throughout the learning and fun is Professor Utonium, who will provide help if necessary.

Let your children participate in Skyscraper Chaser (a high-altitude hopscotch), Letter Bugs (a street-cleaning exercise), and Zap the Map, (an exciting map-reading exercise) so they learn and have fun at the same time. Lively, fun, and modern, this package may appeal to young girls who find more traditional computer games less interesting, and it is a good way to involve them with the PC. --Susan Naylor, Amazon.co.uk ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Academic!
My four-year-old daughter loves the Powerpuff Girls but so far it has just been for entertainment purposes. I assumed this would just teach hand-eye coordination but I was wrong. This has plenty of action and hand-eye coordination fun, and then it also teaches north, south, east, west with map navigation and several other academic chunks as well. She is not yet finished playing it after about three hours so far and she is learning new material. It really teaches her--leaving me time to read a book without too many interruptions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good
I bought this product for my 5-year old daughter who loves the Powerpuff girls. She loved it and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had successfully blended drilling exercises in math and spelling with a truly fun and interactive game. The only drawback to this CD is that it's a bit limited with only 4 games but it is definitely still worth the money and will provide hours of fun for young children.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not so entertaining
My 5-year old doesn't spend the same amount of time on it as she does w/Reader Rabbit, Madeline, or Dr. Seuss. It doesn't offer a lot places to visit...Basically just 4 games and that's it.

5-0 out of 5 stars fun for kids
Both of my kids love "The Powerpuff Girls: Mojo's Clone Zone". I have a 4 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. It's their favorite computer game.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a surprise!
I thought this was going to be another mindless game, that would only hold my five year old's attention for a few seconds. But, this software has truly engaged my daughter in educational games and held her attention for hours, and has her coming back for more. The key WORD is "Educational". It's not just a game it is a learning tool. So if your child likes the "Power Puff Girls" and your want them to learn, I high suggest this software. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Gets Old Fast
Millionaire 3rd Edition has some nice features that aren't there in the first edition (I never bought the 2nd) but that's not enough to save it.

The 2-player fastest finger is cool, although the first time my friend and I played it, neither of us knew the answer to the first FF question and instead of getting a new question, we were stuck trying to answer the same question over and over again. Finally after 3 or 4 tries, Reege finally quit the game and made us start over. Admittedly, we may have been extraordinarily dumb, but it seems that it would be a little more "user friendly" to at least present a new FF question after several consecutive wrong answers.

Another annoying aspect is that for most of the normal questions, there's apparently no way to change your answer or to confirm that it is indeed your "final answer." Only at a few of the "$ Levels" does Regis give the player the opportunity to change the answer.

The game is very realistic with lots of Regis chatter and graphics/music that remind one of the TV show. However, the "action" drags when having to wait for Regis to finish his chit-chat before revealing the correct answer and moving on to the next question. On the TV show, all the chatter, music, and graphics add up to an exciting game but for a computer game, it slows the action down too much.

4-0 out of 5 stars An improvement, but the downloads aren't so great
The 3rd edition of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" is slightly better than the 1st edition. There are more questions, Regis's comments are not as bombastic, and there are some minor graphics improvements. This 3rd edition boasts the ability to download additional questions from the Internet and add them to your game. However, there is one drawback to this. I thought once these additional questions were downloaded and installed, they would be merged with the original 600+ questions that came with the game. Nope. These "question packs", two of which are currently available as I write this, are played seperately. This means if you play a downloaded "question pack", you are asked the same 15 questions every time. That gets old quick.

4-0 out of 5 stars Millionaire Comes to Life
In this game, you are in the Millionaire World! If you love Millionaire, buy this game and you will feel like you are on the show.

5-0 out of 5 stars great game
I Would recommend anyone to order this because its a blast

3-0 out of 5 stars Final Answer!!
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Third Edition was one of the last editions for the P.C. made with Regis Philbin. Still, he still has his zany and enduring way with handling people made him a very big hit with audiences all over the U.S.A. It is just a shame that he is no longer hosting Millionaire anymore. Instead, one of the people from The View is taking over. Unbelieveable, isn't it.

What makes Who Wants To Be A Millionaire different, the third time around, is that the questions are a little bit more complex. Not only that, but if you go to a certain website, you can download new question patches to play all about Millionaire. Unfortunately, those patches that you can download, contain only 15 questions anyway in the main seat, but in the fast finger category, there are more. I really enjoyed spending time with the game, it is just a shame that it isn't fun anymore like it was in primetime on ABC.

The reason why I'm giving it a 3, is because the only way I could've won the million, is because I downloaded the patches from the net. If you want to be a millionaire, I suggest you buy this game. You're not going to win a real million, it is just a game. If you're also a fan of Regis Philbin, I also suggest you get this too, final answer. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars zoboomafoo creature quest
This has so far been a disappointment. It takes like 12 steps to go through the introductory screens, and if you mess up, you have to start completely over. It also loads awfully slow and we have a top of the line loaded new computer. The game instructions are very long, and you have to listen to them every time, and they are mostly unnecessary, they should be under a help option. You can't even click to skip it, meaning you have to have a lot of patience while waiting. The animals are pretty obscure and not common/familiar. The animal facts I cant imagine ever being of much interest to a kid. I expected much better stuff from the Learning Company, especially since this program has received so many awards (no doubt through reputation). In comparison with other products, I can't identify one redeeming aspect for this software. The games are boring and mundane and many are a step down from even other "toddler" programs that are targeted to lower ages. Here I was looking to step up from the toddler programs which our daughter has already mastered. At least I got it very cheap. Its not much fun or entertaining. Not much area to navigate about and explore. No animation to speak of, other than the videos. Nothing clever or interesting or rewarding for mouse clicks. I have to report there are many better programs, and I could never recommend this one for fun, challenge, entertainment, or educational value. It does not hold her attention, she easily handles most of the games/activities, and she's like okay now what. And she still has a long ways to go before reaching age 3. The only games on this CD that she doesn't really know what she is doing is the chameleon and the coyotes, but even those she guesses her way to completion. I can't imagine her growing into liking this CD any more than she does now, in fact I'm certain she will like it less and less because she already expects more stimulation. Even now she prefers clicking around under encarta encylopedia more so than using this CD when it comes to short video clips. Even the logic aspect of finding puzzle pieces seems lame to me when compared to other such programs. I don't forsee her ever wanting to come back to this program when she's ready for more sofisticated logic games and ready to spell or do math. I should mention we started out our daughter on kids computer games before age 1, and she is just fascinated to the point of playing them every day, and she is just amazingly competent with them and now already figures out most kid games on her own. She is very familiar with counting and colors and shapes and mazes and matching and patterns and searching and picture drawing. She has pretty much seen it all. And this CD doesn't cut the mustard for new exciting stuff.

4-0 out of 5 stars fun, entertaining and age-appropriate software
Little Zoboo fans rejoice! This entertaining software is stable, charming and fun. Multiple cut scenes feature the Kratt Brothers and Zoboomafoo's friends in Zoboo-Land, as kids click on objects scattered around Animal Junction. With two exceptions the eight activities are age-appropriate and well-implemented, with three skill levels in coloring, mazes, matching, object identification, counting, bubble popping and pattern match; the latter two games are unnecessarily difficult and confusing, but kids can get through them by clicking away randomly. Also included is a virtual tape recorder with mini-films and factoids about a number of animals. Well done.

We're running the game on an iMac and have had no problems with installation or crashes.

Note: Creature Quest is much better than Zoboomafoo Animal Alphabet; if you have a little Zoboo fan in the house, I'd recommend you purchase this title rather than Animal Alphabet.

5-0 out of 5 stars We both love it!
My 3 year old daughter and I both love this software! She still needs some help with the mouse, so I have to play with her, and this is the only software we have that I don't mind playing after a few minutes! She's not so interested yet in the animal facts, but I like them!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for fans of the T.V show
I got this game for my 4 year old for christmas. She loves the T.V. program and learning about animals, so I figured it would be a hit with her, and it was. She loves playing it and trying to find all the puzzle pieces to find the treasure. Kids learn about some animals and their habitatis, numbers and patterns. You have to look for hidden treasure and there are 3 levels of play on the games. My daughter loved it first off simply because it contains the whole Zoboomafoo theme song! She runs it on her iMac. Only one little problem, it occasionally locks up when left unattended for a pretty long period of time, and the game is left running.

1-0 out of 5 stars How Frustrating and Disappointing
Wish I could give this 0 stars. I cannot get this to run on our WIn 95 machine (yes I know it's a dinosoar but that's what we have for my child) and it continually crashes on our XP machine. Broderbund (the software company) has not responded to my pleas for help except to give me 4 different case #'s. AAAGGGGHHHH. My 3 year old and I are frustrated to the extreme. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Warning- won't run on iBook G3
Don't buy this game if you expect to install it and run it on a G3 iBook. It freezes up on the first frame and goes no further. An unhappy Christmas gift experience to be avoided. Although it says "designed for OS X", I don't think anyone at the company has actually tried it on a new computer. My son's 4 month old iBook exceeds all the requirements, but it sure doesn't work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Demo rocks, but full game has been a long wait...
I've been playing the demo version of KSPS for mac on my 887mhz G4 powerbook 12" since it was released and am fully stoked. The gameplay tends to be smoother than the PS2 version and the graphics have more detail. I play with the PS2 Dual Shock controller plugged in via usb with an imported converter called the "PS-PC USB 2.0 Converter V," and it feels just like a console game.
Load times in the demo are fairly good, and as long as I don't turn on full anti-aliasing, the only lag during play is in the first second of the first wave.
If you are unfamiliar with the game: fans of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series will dig this water-based reincarnation. Surfers will surely enjoy this game, especially on flatter days... As for me (I also fit into the two above categories), this is one of the few video games that has next to no violence yet still sppeals to the above five crowd.
I've been waiting for this game since Aspyr said they were going to have it available in early June! A long wait, but well worth it. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Bloody Hell!
I love Monopoly but it's a pain in the royal chambers to set up all the money and clean it up after you're done. I thought this game would get rid of those problems, which it did, but it also made new ones. The host sound like a yankee carnie from the early 90's, dare I say. The computer always maanages to land on his own properties all the time and is quite stubborn in the trade aspect. This game frequently freezes, which is another annoyance. Finally, the map editor. It seems like a brilliant idea, but you can't save your bloody work! Overall, if you enjoy playing cartoon-like games, this is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you love the board game then you'll like this.
Monopoly is one of those games you may not want to play with friends because basically someone has to win and everyone else really loses. However, here you can play with someone on-line or on another computer hooked up to your or with computer players. One word of caution: the computer players cheat a lot!

1-0 out of 5 stars The tail is wagging the dog
For the first few minutes, you're likely to think this is pretty cute. The view of the board zooms around in 3D, the little dog wags its tail, and the characters make droll comments. But after those few minutes it will dawn on you--all this cute stuff is getting in the way of playing the game. It takes the patience of a saint to make it all the way through an entire game, and you're unlikely to want to play another. Even if you disable as much of the cutsie stuff as you're allowed to, the view of the board still zooms around in a way that will make your stomach turn (and prevents you from getting any real sense of the location of the pieces). Play is excruciatingly slow, and frequently interrupted by the silly (and ineffective) attempts at trading by the computer players.

It's loaded with sound and graphics but it's essentially unplayable. Buy this only if you DON'T like to play Monopoly.

1-0 out of 5 stars What OS are you using?
On anything OS 9+ on two different machines a CD game that worked a few years ago is now totally unsupported and useless. I hope this current CD works for you.

There are five different activities that can be played many times during the course of the game. You must catch the matching number/shape in Number Drop, choose the correct coordinates in the navigation activity, and assign the correct parts according to certain rules in the logic game. In the recipe section, you will weigh, measure, and set the timer/temperature gauges. The hero-building activity's directions must be followed to build a hero. There are six grade levels that you can customize to fit each child, and the program will give the player the option to adjust to a higher level if they answer all the questions correctly in an activity. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars This is NO Myst!!!
I LOVE adventure games of this genre, but I found this game lightweight when compared to the likes of Myst, Riven and Exile. The puzzles were easy. The only difficulty came in finding a few critical items that were WELL hidden.

(TINY HINT BELOW-- NO SPOILER)

Look in EVERY shadowy spot.

The end game is a letdown. It felt unfinished, somehow.

4-0 out of 5 stars many entertaining hours
i seem to have a dissenting opinion, but i really liked this. the puzzles were engaging, but not too hard (i didnt need a walkthrough). the game progressed at a rate such that i didnt get bogged down. the scenery was pretty, with lots of places to explore. examples are the temples off the queens chambers and the lagoon with several ruins surrounding it. most of the puzzles can be solved by finding the answer after careful exploration (like the alligator room); no mental revelations are necessary. it is possible to die, so save often. after a while, the player will recognize the danger spots. there is a relatively difficult maze whose passageways dont make sense, but it is still negotiable.

problems include jamming, mainly around the tape recorder, and a very obstinate padlock. the jamming can be defeated by turning off the ATIs in the extensions manager, but this requires restarting your computer each time you play or go back to other applications. once these are off, though, the game runs very smoothly. some places can be a little boring, like the endless tunnel and the great sand transfer, but generally things move along smartly. also, the music was good. generally, i dont notice game music, but i did with this one.

there have been remarks about religious undertones of this game. i really think that this is reading too much into it; it is just a computer game. the satisfaction comes from finally getting that door to open and not from some religious epiphany. in all, i consider rots to be a worthy effort and an entertaining puzzle (adventure) game. its sequel is coming out for windows, and i hope its available for mac.

3-0 out of 5 stars Riddle this!
For a game with so many programing flaws, it was fun and very challenging - too challenging at times. Too many program problems to contend with but passing the initial tape playing problems, the game was almost flawless. The puzzles are exact and demanded your attention to the max. No shortcuts here. The graphics are great but the play could have been better - too much like Myst and Riven in that respect. Just get beyond the technical problems with the patch at the Dreamcatcher web site and it should work fine.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Egyptians are Dull
I was hoping for a good exploration game with little shoot'em ups and more discovery and learning. Instead, here is a game that hopes you will buy the hint book. I did not get very far because I am not good at puzzles. I was greatly dissappointed.

(...)Jesus was Jewish, he was raised three years in Egypt and there is no problem with singing the joy that inspires your life and saves your soul. However, that is no excuse for a poorly executed CD-ROM.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment!!
I bought this game shortly after seeing it listed on the top ten games of the year list. After buying this game however, I thought it should be on the worst ten games of the year list! Graphics are horrible, sound is crummy, and the plot line lacks anything interesting. After 1/2 an hour of playing the game, I decided it would be more interesting to go watch Barney with ny 4 year old nephew. It has not re-entered my cdrom drive since. You would be much better off buying Myst which, although more expensive, is so much more interesting than this! ... Read more
