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: 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.
Summary: So I had read a few reviews for the games and everyone said it was terrible. But I love the original Oregon Trail and I wasn't looking for an A+ game. That being said, this game is un-playable!! regardless of how good I want it to be. Its really disappointing because it seems like its actually pretty in depth for being an Oregon trail remake, but sadly it just doesn't run right on the 3ds its constantly loading or lagging, very very sad.
Summary: I was so excited for this game to come out. I waited for it for months... sadly it's not as good as the original. The most disappointing part for me is that they've added a time limit. And if you don't complete the level within the time frame then you have to start the level all over. What happened to the good old days where your character would just die of dysentery or snake bite?
