4.0 out of 5 stars Does Dora Live up to her Show? August 26, 2002
By A Customer
Dora the Explorer: Backpack Adventure is the first CD-ROM starring Dora and her friends. For the parents that have bought Nick Jr. software before, such as the Blue's Clues series, I must warn you, you will be a tad dissapointed. First, however, the pros. Infrogames (that's right, Humongous is gone, Infogames has taken over) has copied 95% of Dora's world into this game. All her friends are there, and are voiced by the TV actors. The music is from the show as well, and Dora asks for your child's help a lot. This game is based on Backpack Adventure, which means you are helping Dora return her books to the library. Now, sadly, we come to the other 5%. First off, if you're looking for free exploration and clickable surprises, you will only find them in 2 screens of this game. The rest of it is game-structured. You finish a game, you're done at that location. Second, the Map screen. When you look at the Map, instead of seeing three locations, you see 7. Still, the Map tells you you only need to go to three of those locations, yet you go to all 7. This could be confusing for a child who has seen the show. Also, if your child likes the songs, he or she is in for a surprise. Only one song is played fully, and two (I'm the Map and Grumpy old Troll) are recited. The other two, Vamanos and Backpack, are shortened. Aside from that, this is a good game for any Dora fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars My 3 year was bored after 3 plays the first day. October 29, 2002
By A Customer
I would have to agree with the other reviewers of this game. This game looks and sounds like it is 3 to 4 years old, Infogames must have been put on a quick deadline to get it done. Graphics are very poor, details are lacking, and there is very little a child can explore on their own. There is little incentive to play it again after completing it one time at each skill level. My daughter loves Dora, but has not wanted to play this game since the day we brought it home. My advice would be to wait until it appears in the bargain bin at the store.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor September 6, 2002
By "roojo"
The children's show Dora the Explorer is ready made for computer games but unfortunately Infogrames has done a terrible job putting this together.
1.The game is full of glitches, I have run it on a MAC and a PC and have had problems with it on both platforms.
2. The game is VERY limited, my son loves Dora but was bored with this after a few plays.
3. My advice is save your money and buy some Dora books
instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Dora November 1, 2002
By A Customer
It's too bad that this title is nowhere near as good as the Nick Jr. TV show. It starts out nicely, but is short on content and gameplay and is very repetitive. The movies become dull, and children cannot click through them which caused alot of frustration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids Like Repition November 4, 2002
By A Customer
I have b/g twins - almost 4 - and this has become their favorite game! Yes, I got bored with it very quickly - but they LOVE it - and they now get on the computer themselves, and pop it in. They love typing their names in and "owning" the whole game (without my help). I'm sure they'll tire of it soon, but we got it during the summer, and it's November and they still "play Dora" almost every day! Kids LIKE repition!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money, gets old very fast September 30, 2002
Our 3 year old wouldn't leave the store without this, so we gave in since it looked like a good educational, and fun program. Unfortunately, once you have played the game once (which takes all of 20 minutes)you have pretty much exhausted it for entertainment value. Oh sure, you can change the level to increase the difficulty but it really doesn't alter the game play, it just adds a few more items to each "puzzle". Although from the packaging we had high hopes for this game, we ended up being extremely disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dora September 9, 2002
By A Customer
Dora's backpack adventure was too easy. My three and a half year old completed level 2 in about 15-20 minutes. The third level is only harder because it the activities are in Spanish. She loves Dora but was bored with it the second time around.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of this product December 7, 2002
My daughter loves this game, but after installing the game, I realized that it had also decided to install some software from Gator.com.
If you are not aware of what gator is, it is a massive online privacy violation. It will track all of your web travels, giving gator information that you have entered into webforms. This has nothing to do with the game, and is a blatant violation of your and your childs privacy.
If I had a way to give this a lower rating I would. My daughter played for about 5 minutes before she ran into a hang that needed the computer rebooted, and we couldn't play anymore. Go somewhere else to find your childs games
