4 stars from CD-ROM Today
An interactive Moviebook based on the Warner Bros. Film. Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home is a totally captivating multimedia experience for children four and up. Developing reading and computer skills has never been so much fun.
It all starts inside a fully explorable Whale Watch Tower overlooking Willy's favorite island cove. Inside, children will discover a storybook with over 50 pages of text, movie clips, photos, animation, sound effects and puzzles. An optional narrator reads the text aloud as it highlights the words and activates multimedia events.
Outside is a lush shoreline thriving with engaging activities, including sandcastle games, amazing mazes, environmental treasures hunts...even a place to watch (and learn about) orcas. It's Willy's most cherished place on earth, now inside your PC.
Requirements: 386/33 running Windows 3.1 or later; 4MB RAM (8MB recommended); CD-ROM drive (double speed); 256-color monitor; sound card.

"It's no surprise that interactive storybooks based on popular children's movies attract attention - kids enjoy spending time with their favorite movie characters. Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home and The Little Rascals are multimedia-rich electronic books based on Hollywood movies.They succeed as early learning titles because they combine familiar movie sights, sounds, and personalities with skill-building activities that motivate reading by capturing a child's imagination."
"Free Willy 2 and The Little Rascals also feature several other games, puzzles, and fun activities. For example, The Little Rascals invites children to print black-line drawings that they can color in later. Kids get to build a custom 'Blur' racing car assembled from a wide collection of car bodies, tires, steering wheels, doors, and horns. There's also a treasure hunt in which kids search for objects hidden in black-line drawings. Free Willy 2 takes children through a maze, an undersea world of treasures and trash, and Clamshell Castle, where they play a game of Concentration.
"Free Willy 2 and the Little Rascals cannot compete with the Broderbund/Random House 'Living Book' series. Moviebook pages don't have as many amusing animations or wacky sound effects. Nevertheless, these well-crafted storybooks are packed with content, delivering educational value and gaming fun."
