Summary: This is just OK. Some parts of the game are annoying, like how you can't stop the wagon most of the time in time before you pass a person or post and then you can't turn around. It gets pretty redundant too. When is someone going to make a good Oregon Trail Game?
Summary: When I was a kid, I had 1996 Oregon Trail on my computer. This was always one of our favorite games. I also played the 3rd edition when I was younger, which included fishing. The major difference with this game is that it includes a new element where you need to steer the wagon to avoid hitting obstacles, which damage your wagon and oxen. This adds a little more action to the game.
Summary: I got this game today, and after playing for almost an hour and a half, I have to say it's pretty neat and nice! I bought this game because I love the Oregon Trail so I thought it would be good to get the 3DS version of the game. The game didn't come out exactly like I thought it would be, but it's pretty great! Shipping was fast and I pretty much like the game! Glad I got it. Thank you!
Summary: When I got this I was hoping for scenarios where educated decisions would be the core of the game. All this amounts to is a driving game... with oxen. Medicine fixes anything whether its illness or broken limbs. Hunting is alright and not much different from past versions. The interaction has been dumbed down to drudgery or frustration with little to absolutely no educational benefit.
Summary: My history buff son LOVES this game as does my math/science/athletic son. They're having so much fun on this journey and I think they're addicted to playing it more than their other DS games that aren't as interactive (and educational).
Summary: I thought the game would have a little more to it... I get that this is a classic game but the 3D is almost pointless if you don't have a little more substance. I love the original story...it is history after all you can't change that. I think the game could have really gotten more involved in the hunting, fishing and gathering. Personally I just feel like the game I played 20 years ago had more to it than this minus the updated graphics.
