Reviews:

JustAdventure, by Randy Sluganski

"When is a game that has the word 'adventure' in the title not an adventure game? When it is Arthur's Computer Adventure. Not that that is a bad thing, mind you, but this is more of an interactive read-along adventure, not an inventory-based, solve the puzzle in order to proceed adventure on the order of Rugrats or The Pink Panther.

"This game is the fourth release in the Living Books Arthur franchise, and it is also the most balanced. Not only can you read about Arthur and click on hundreds of objects within the pages of the storybook, but you can also participate in five different 'learning activities' that are actually learning tools masquerading as games. This enhanced interactivity greatly increases the game's replay value, and we did find ourselves revisiting certain games again and again."

"So what is the adventure in Arthur's Computer Adventure? Well, for me, it was playing with my son Jacob. Even though the box states that the game is for ages 3 to 7, my 8-year-old was enthralled. The interactive reading section can be completed in a night, but it is the well-done extra activities and games that kept him coming back for more. This is one program that is heartily recommended for any parents who want to enjoy computer time with their children or for any parents who do not want to fret over leaving their children alone with inappropriate material."
