Reviews:

Family PC, October 1996

"If you still believe that the head bone is connected to the neck bone, this in-depth journey through the human skeletal system will set you straight. Like all DK Multimedia titles, the CD-ROM features beautiful illustrations, a friendly interface, and brief but informative text. It also includes detailed 3-D illustrations of all 206 bones in the human body, which you can rotate and view from any angle. You move through the program by either clicking on a small rendition of a skeleton or through an index that lists all the bones in the human body. And if you're struggling with all that Latin, the program will pronounce the name of each bone for you.

"The Ultimate 3D Skeleton also contains a directory of 'amazing facts' (the hand's lunate bone, for example, acquired its name because of its crescent-moon shape), as well as a quiz based on the program's contents. One gripe about the quiz was that the questions range from the super-challenging (the bones of the hand) to the simple (the hip joint). Still, the quiz may prove useful as a study aid.

"This program is not designed for younger kids - while it's easy to use, it is not particularly attention-grabbing, and the graphics appear a bit cramped within the view screen. But for serious anatomy students or those who want to go further than their general human anatomy program can take them, the Ultimate 3D Skeleton fits the niche."

MacAddict, November 1996

"In this highly focused bone dig, you can stare at, flip around, rotate, and print out every ossified ounce of matter that matters. Click anywhere on the skeleton at the side of your screen for a close-up view of a bone. Once the bone is in your sights you can opt for different views or twirl it around in movie mode."

"DK used multimedia technology to its best with this disc: a book on the subject be a decent reference, but this disc makes standard text seem like a bunch of old bones."
