2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed August 21, 2003
I have used earlier versions of CreataCard and have been very pleased with every upgrade. But not this time. While there are many nice graphics, the majority (and in some categories - all)of graphics require you be online to even view them. If you 'paste' the item, then you have to wait while the graphic downloads. Many of the artwork that had previously been on my PC are now only available if I'm online. I have written the company; they acknowledged that the majority of graphics were online and advised me to turn off that feature or to upgrade!!! I told them I wanted my money back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Much Less Than Expected March 15, 2005
I have Creatacard Gold 3 and love it. Wanted to Purchase more, but since being bought out by Broderbund, the option for expanding the cards on the CD's was taken away. The only option available is to purchase a newer version. I was okay with that, but discovered that the newer version doesn't even come close in quality, variety, or ease of use. If you've used the earlier versions and are looking for more cards, do NOT waste your money or time on this inferior product.

2.0 out of 5 stars American Greetings CreataCard Gold 8 August 19, 2004
By Rippy
Very disappointing. I had been using CreataCard Gold (Copywrite 1997) and was very happy with it. I purchased version 8 hoping for the same user-friendly interface and more professional quality greeting cards with multiple greetings.

I found this version's interface to be cumbersome. The size of the cards was too small to see prior to selection. When I scrolled the view kept bouncing backward. The cards were nearly all cartoon quality-- few nice, professional quality like the first version. Most of the cards were accessible only via the Internet. DEFINITELY NOT AN IMPROVEMENT OVER THE ORIGINAL CREATACARD GOLD. KNOWING WHAT I KNOW NOW, I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT.

1.0 out of 5 stars After creatacard gold 3 , it was all down hill October 31, 2005
I started with creatacard 2. I loved it so I got creatacard 3. I liked that even better so I got creatacard 4. This was a total waste of my money. It is so different from the original product that I can't believe that they could even use the same name. A total waste of time and money for anything after version 3.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very unhappy December 6, 2005
I am an owner of CreataCard Gold 3. I love it but it is outdated so I decided to upgrade to the CreataCard Platinum 8. I am very disappointed. I can not use the old version saved files it doesnt reconize them. You cannot send an email of the card without the whole shop showing. It is much harder to use. I dont think it is user friendly.

I wish I had read these reviews before purchacing it. To anyone that has the old version do not upgrade. To those who do not have the older version then good luck to you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money April 28, 2005
By Mindy
I could not even get this installed.

After searching the website for Broderbund and receiving unbelievably complicated instructions to install, it still did not work. You cannot call them because the only reason this company will talk to you on the phone is to sell you something. There is no e-mail support for this product, probably because they could not possibly hire enough staff to support this service because this product is so bad.

I e-mailed Riverdeep which owns Broderbund and they have sent me a form letter e-mail instructing me to do everything I had done so far with no further help.

I also had to do a long complicated process to remove a previous version from my computer and to finally remove the mess that was created from trying to install this program.

Don't waste your time or money on products from this company.

1.0 out of 5 stars CreataCard Gold 8 April 1, 2005
I agree with D. Davis (Honolulu). I have been using CreataCard Gold 3 for years and tried the upgrades and gave up on them as they are not a patch on CreataCard Gold 3. I usually like Broderbund products but they need to go back to the drawing board or better still go back to Gold 3
