4 stars from PC Entertainment

There is a city so magical, so mystical that it has inspired religions, warriors, psalmists, kings, and poets... Jerusalem.

According to legend, while ten measures of beauty were bestowed upon the world, nine went to Jerusalem.

What is it about this city that inspires such love, anger, passion and loyalty?
Only one square mile and yet Jerusalem's walled Old City has for three millennia been a lightning rod for the forces of human faith, love and yearning.

A city of mirrors, the old reflecting the new, the religious reflecting the profane, peace reflecting war. A city where the ancient stones hold secrets and legends timeless as the ages.
State of the art technology coupled with breathtaking graphics and the help of nine unforgettable tour guides, takes you through the streets where prophets and martyrs once walked.

Experience ancient Jerusalem guided by the personalities that shaped it and visit modern day Jerusalem guided by people who live there today.
Embark on an amazing journey. Pathways Through Jerusalem is your virtual guide through this magical city. Come join us...

Reviews:

PC Entertainment, March 1996

"Future Vision Multimedia's Pathways Through Jerusalem takes a multicultural view. You'll find interesting interactive timelines, hyperlinked databases, and multimedia maps covering the city, its history, and its significance. The comprehensive two-disc title also presents nine guided video tours throughout the city. Your guides include historical figures King David and Herod the Great, as well as modern Christian, Jewish, and Muslim residents. Each covers the same ground, but view it from a unique historical and cultural perspective. The guides' acting talent ranges from sincere to campy, but the experience captures the essence of an actual visit to the Holy City and reflects how different groups regard this important place."

Computer Shopper, March 1996

"There's an excellent database for researching specific sites and topics, as well as a cool map that lets you take in the city one site at a time. You also can access period texts, check in on related archaeological discoveries, learn about the myths associated with various places, and get different historical perspectives from other guides about the same structure or landmark.

Technically, the title is brilliant. The producers make effective use of blue-screen filming techniques to superimpose the actors against the historical backdrops. The video clips are done extremely well, too, particularly those rleating to the modern era of the British Mandate and the founding of Israel."
