4.0 out of 5 stars Great learning game June 17, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I own both Oregon Trail and Amazon Trail. And I have actually always liked Amazon Trail better than Oregon Trail.
This game allows the player travel down the Amazon River, while exploring events that occurred on the river during different time periods. The player can interact with simulated Native Americans, Henry Ford, Teddy Roosevelt, etc. The player can also learn about different diseases, species of plants and animals, etc.
It's a great twist to learning. I recommend any parent to buy this for his/her kid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rowin' down the edutainment river February 14, 2012

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played this game when I was young. This game is fairly educational involving animal Identification, problem solving and even some diplomacy when working with the native people. It can be a little boring, especially when all you are doing is rowing down the river for a while. But if you are really good at it, you can beat the game very quickly. It doesn't have too much of a replay value though, which is a bit of a dissapointment.
There were a few technical problems with the game. I have a newer computer and noticed that many of the animations didn't work too well and that the game would occasionally crash after a while. All in all a decent game worth a couple hours of play. Very educational too!

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG! August 22, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I freaking loved Amazon Trail! I got the second version when I was a wee child in elementary school, and later played through it again as an adult. This game is super fun and educational. I just so happened to have an obsession with the Amazon, as well as animals, photography, and history, so this game didn't get much more perfect for me. If they make a newer version (oh please do!) I would buy it for myself in a heart beat. I remember a LOT of stuff still that I wouldn't have known if not for that game. Definitely helped my development into a smart little kid and a very nerdy adult :P

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't run on OSX - Mac OS 9 and below... May 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't bother with this software if you own a Mac that you've purchased in the last 5 years. This software is from 1999. Literally.

The installer will only install in MacOS "Classic" mode, which means that it won't install on any Mac running an operating system version newer than 6 or more years.
