Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, April 1996

"The company's [DK Multimedia] new suite of Eyewitness reference titles offers a virtual natural history museum with separate discs dedicated to each 'floor.' The first two titles, Virtual Reality Cat and Virtual Reality Bird, are strong reference works. Both are wonderfully executed and offer a variety of data and depth of information."

"Virtual Reality Cat explores the same subject areas and follows the same general pattern as Bird, although it does seem to have many more video clips of cats in the wild. The disc examines everything from the various sounds a domestic cat makes and what they mean, to how lions hunt their prey. Each display is based on a vivid illustration with captions and pointers. Most have hot spots for more detailed information, zoom-in buttons to get a closer look, and lists of related topics."

PC Entertainment, April 1996

Eyewitness Virtual Reality Cat and Bird "explore not only the history of the cat and bird families, but also their habitats, personalities, and survival techniques. And you won't just get up close and personal with house cats and seagulls. You'll witness baby birds hatching, speeding cheetahs bringing down their prey, and ancient art depicting the mythology surrounding these animals."

"The pair of discs covers just about every related topic imaginable as you take a splendid first-person stroll through the museum...Animal lovers and just-plain-curious types will find hours of fun with these engaging discs."
