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.
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: Like in the PC versions, your ultimate goal is to reach Oregon City before winter arrives. But along the way you must solve problems, everywhere from whether to hunt or not,all the way to deciding whether to flee from indians or not.
Summary: Nostalgia! This is a port of an ancient PC Classic! Its nice to be able to play this game on the #DS. Take a dangerous journey inn the Oregon Trail. If you are successful You and your family can potentially have a better life!
