3 star(s) OK, But not as I expected

By EsvatikSpazzy Verified Buyer from Racine, WI on 5/17/2010

Primary Use: Personal
Pros: Original Story line
Cons: Almost like the old apple, Still Old Style format
Describe Yourself: Quality Oriented

I don't know I was a little dissapointed in the software, I figured a NEW version of the software might have better gameplay, but it still ran like the old apple version that I remember playing back in grade school. There were some things that improved over the old version but not to much. It is still a good game and I still play it, but really disappointed that it is not as improved or advanced as you would expect NEW versions to be.

1 star(s) Do not purchase for a Mac

By Ponderu Verified Buyer from Vancouver WA on 5/18/2009


Do not purchase this game for a Mac. This was a great game that my children have learned from and enjoyed. Unfortunately it will no longer run on a Mac system unless your running OS 9. It requires a font that is not present and can not be obtained. Customer service is not available, the game is not supported. Purchase at your own risk.

Got this in a decent amount of time, bought it because the earlier version wasnt for XP. Apparently this one isnt either... Regardless what the pkg says. Still cant install it or make it run. It seizes my machine. Thats about it. If anyone knows the way to make this work- def let me know.
