5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased!
Our 6 yr. old daughter loves this software. I have started limiting her computer time now, because if I didn't she would play this game for hours. It works well, user friendly and the format is great. Love the colors and animation.
1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
I have a new HP computer.Loaded the game and it says the necessary sound card/program is not on the computer - but it is!Needless to say, the program will not run.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
Luxor is a fabulous game, addictive, and on a couple of levels very difficult.My other half is a true gamer and loved it too, and found it to be quite challenging.There are some very challenging levels--the Khufu levels--but once you get past them, you're able to do it again.You will love this game.The colors and graphics are very nice eye-candy.You'll wake up in the middle of the night thinking "twenty more minutes...just another twenty minutes and I'll have it licked."Have fun!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!
I'd like to give this game five stars. It's fun, fast, and and entertaining and I really enjoy playing it.Unfortunately they designed a couple of the levels too hard. Level 5-4, for example.It's nearly impossible to get through this level.If you do, they have an even harder version of it later in the game.Do a search for Luxor 5-4 or 8-4 and you'll see tons of comments about people stuck on these levels.
2-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed!
I made it to the 9th stage and enjoyed it along the way BUT it is virtually impossible to get past the second segment of the 9th stage. If you enjoy stress and anxiety then you will love this game. Personally, I consider it to be worth maybe half of what I paid for it. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The Few Disks That Work Are Good
As another reviewer noted, if you can find a disk in this package that works, it's a good deal.At least half of them didn't for me--and I tried them on several PCs, with different OSs.There's a help line you can contact, but they told me the problem was with my PCs, not their disks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Buy a used copy!
These Encore educational sets, though labeled with the latest year in the edition they're trying to sell at any given moment, are really changed very little from one edition to the next - which explains the phenomena of the "extra" drivers needed for XP which an earlier reviewer noted.
2-0 out of 5 stars Good software but I expected more.
I was looking for a piece of software that could help my son better prepare for middle school during the summer.One of the things that I expected was that each 'unit' would have some kind of test or quiz so we could track his progress and this title had very little of that.At this point we are using it as 'guided computer time' and looking for another package that can do a better job of tracking and reporting his progress. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!
This is a good game and the sequel is coming out soon, but no one in their right mind should pay any where near what these people want. Crooks...

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!
I really enjoy this game, but am still pretty amateur. Of course, the difficulty "Easy" helps... This game is awesome though, it recieved a 9.4/10 on game spot, and the patches make it better. This game was designed with modders in mind, and a ton can be dloaded from www.madminutegames.com

5-0 out of 5 stars American Conquest Divided Nation
This game is just like its' predecessors. It is a very good game,especially the civil war part of the instant action mode. It is very authentic,has excellent graphics, and is very realistic. CDV has put out another excellent game. This game come with everything that involves the Civil War, including the correct types of ships, the gatling gun, cannons, and the whole works. I have played the History channel Civil War Game, and believe me , it is similar to American Conquest Divided Nation, but American Conquest Divided Nation is much much better. I see that this game isn't out yet, but I ordered my copy from the CDV headquarters off the web site from Germany. This game called American Conquest Divided Nation has got a superb Civil War Game on it, (Union vs. Confederate). When you get this game you will find out what I mean ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Elementary Advantage
Gee, I've used the Elementary and Middle School Advantage to suppliment the "Play and Learn" books for home schooling and found it acceptable. The programs can be difficult to load on newer machines but that is not our issue.Compared with what is being taught in public schools in our area, it is nice to have the opportunity to teach/learn Spanish, typing and do spelling in a game form. There are definetly things that could be improved on but as a suppliment its acceptable and usable. I particularly found the Middle School Advantage Reading disc full of books a great asset.The elementary spelling disc could use revamping by having grade graduated lists, common mis-spelled words and words grouped together with common sounds, spellings or letter characteristics.I recommend purchasing the set at the used price of under $10. and use it as a interactive suppliment.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
My best advice is to save your money and do more research on other products.The fancy box is misleading as the software is terribly outdated.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terribly Outdated. Misleading coverbox.
I bought this in hopes of helping a 7 yr old improve his spelling and reading.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ripoff
What a HUGE disappointment. I was looking for an alternative to the Summer Bridge books for my [...] son to finish out the summer and thought that, since computer time is prized at our house, he'd be motivated by CD-ROMs. After only an hour and a half with these CDs, we're both perplexed and annoyed.
1-0 out of 5 stars Beware: one of the worst set of computer games ever
The description of the game is great, it makes you want to buy it.Do not let the advertising trick you. The games are very poorly designed, bad graphics.Most games are from the early 90's.I contacted the manufacurer after I installed the games and requested an explanation on why they sell old games as brand new, never got an answer.A waste of money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value!

1-0 out of 5 stars This isA GAME!
This is a game . Its educational value does not live up to what is promised on its cover, very misleading. What primary resource material was it talking about? It was a game and if thats what you want to get your kid get civillization III, not only does it have more educational content , it also is more realistic and helps them learn the complexity and hardship alongside history and structure. In other words this was a waste of money !

4-0 out of 5 stars Sound great for reports
This looks great as I plan on teaching 1750 - 1900 this year to my homeschooled children.I especially like the idea of maps, that is if I can print them off.It is good to have maps pertaining to that era specifically.The only reservation I have would be the systems requirements, as I have XP but I can use it on our Windows 98 I am sure.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Middle School Success
Don't bother buying - especially for Math.Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II and Geometry are non-existent on the CD's except as a page (no links) on the engineering cd.The rest of the cd is fun for about 10 minutes with very little learning value.Typing Tutor is okay, but boring.
1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I thought I'd try out this software because I had seen it often in the computer store and wanted to assist my 8th grader with basic middle school work over the summer break. The nicely laid out subjects shown on the box (such as Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and Algebra II) had no corrolation to the titles included in the packet. Some of the disks seem geared toward 3rd graders and insult the intellect of the middle school student. Others are much more advanced (aka the Engineering (or "Math" cd) Funny the box doesn't mention anything about learning Engineering?)
1-0 out of 5 stars unbelievable
I bought this program to help my 6th grader. The cover brags about having 11 CDs covering 19 topics. My first problem is, where is the math!? The first CD contains 3 games that deal with probability and engineering. The written explainations of the problems look they they belong on the board of a college engineering class.I searched through all the other CDs and there is no other math! What a let down.
