Good fun!Many fond memories of the original. This game incorporates those memories with a new way of telling the story with extras that are equally as fun!

Hard to Enjoy Anything About It.I borrowed this game because it looked like it would be pretty cool. There aren't too many Oregon trail games out there. When I started playing, I thought that the graphics were pretty mediocre, and the old-fashion country music was kind of annoying. It takes a while to figure out what to do if you're knew to the game, and I basically just spent a long time whipping oxen and going on the trail. Didn't really do much else. I went hunting, but you basically just move a target onto a blurry rabbit and make it explode with a gun. It also doesn't use the 3D in a great way. It might as well just be 2D. This game bored me quickly, and it's hard to say anything good about it, besides the fact that it is unique and different from other games.

EHHH....i LOVED the computer version, this one is fun, but no where near as good. i wish they would have done more with it, such as sicknesses, injuries, etc. cause that just doesnt happen that often. This game is ok i dotn think i play it a lot so ill probably end up returning it, possibly.

Like the PC version? Then you won't enjoy this.I picked up this game with fairly high expectations that this was going to be like the PC game that I played in grade school. I was in for a shock. At the beginning you only get one story line option opened to you. Once selected you can customize your wagon tarp and base which was pretty cool. But after you take off from Independence, the game falls down hill quickly. It sets you on a time limit to reach your destination by winter and when you go to check on your stuff, hitting the controls and figuring them feels a little awkward. Major issues came from controlling the oxen on the game to "navigate" the course of the trail. I couldn't believe how terrible it was! Your wagon and oxen basically have "hit points" sort to speak of hitting trees and rocks. If you hit them, you keep going, with little "talismans" on the road to help patch you up, it doesn't have too much of the realistic flows of the original. You also do not get to pick up berries or search for cures to the ailments your team may develop. You just hit "give medicine" and you're covered. As an adult hoping to give this to a child, the lack of learning that came with picking your own berries and researching associated with the deadly diseases true pioneers faced takes away the chance to make it an enjoyable history lesson (like its predecessor). The positives of this game are the fact that it is child-friendly, and the fishing/hunting aspects of the game are enjoyable. (Though beware: You do not decide when you are done. That is also timed.) The rest of the game was terrible enough that, after getting to Oregon City my first time through, I returned the game. I seldom give out negative reviews because it takes all kinds of people to figure out the game, but this one I wouldn't even really recommend to my own.

I love this versionIn this version I really like being able to drive the wagon and the 3D visuals. The hunting is fun altough I enjoyed hunting more in an old PC version I used to have but still liked it better than in some versions. The fishing was probably the easiest way for me to get food as well as being fun. It is also fun to be able to cross the rivers without having to decide how to do it. The game is pretty simple but certain parts are a bit challenging.
