Product Description

Product Description

Build real-life skills on a trailblazing adventure to Oregon. Pick your wagon party, stock up on supplier and explore new routes to the last great frontier. Success depends on the many decisions you make!


This trailblazing adventure builds real-life skills, such as decision making and problem solving. As the leader of a wagon party, you can choose your team and supplies, read maps, plan your route, and guide your team through the unknown wilderness. Tough choices lie ahead, but with the help of your wagon party and people you meet along the way, you'll conquer this challenging journey and arrive in a new land. You'll need to build a team with the skills you think are important for survival on the rugged trail to Oregon. To find the best route, you'll rely not only on maps and guidebooks but also advice from fellow travelers and your gut instinct. On the trail, you'll face all the trials and tribulations of the first pioneers: raging rivers, buffalo stampedes, sickness, and gunshot wounds. Your adventure comes to life with 3-D travel, 360-degree panoramic views and full-motion video.

DON'T BUY THIS GAME! Our family enjoyed a previous edition of this game and looked forward to the 4th edition. What a spectacular let down. We don't have a new computer, but to make this game run we were expected to "tweak" our system to a level below the computer we retired in 1998! The technical support people at TLC are totally unhelpful. The only suggestions they offer are the same as those printed in the "read me" file. Quick Time 4.0 prevents this game from running, so you have to downgrade to the Quick Time 3.0 version that is bundled with the game. Since Quick Time 4 was part of my Windows system files (and not a separate program file) you can imagine the headache messing with this caused. It is absurd that The Learning Company expects a "new" game to require a version of Quick Time that is no longer available and which has no support. I spent hours adjusting our system to run the game and guess what? IT IS AN AWFUL GAME. If I hadn't spent money and hours of my time DOWNGRADING my computer it would be funny. The game is pasted together with scenery from previous versions. Extremely poor game design, pitiful graphics, and clunky gaming. Not since the days when Windows was first replacing DOS have I installed a game that was such a pain to set up and so undependable in play. Save your money, don't buy this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oregon Trail 4 - not what you would expect May 24, 2000
By A Customer
I do not recommend buying this game. The first one I bought loaded fine, but I could never move out of first gear. There were no people in the hotel and I could not join a wagon or advance. All the double clicking in the world would not get this game to work. I exchanged the game for another and the exact same senario occured. Bad batch of CD? I think so. Buy the way, the first and second editions of this software are the best. The third edition keeps crashing on the 3rd CD. The Learning Company needs to get their act together.

1.0 out of 5 stars I repeat DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. I repeat...! November 12, 2000
By Jaclyn
Okay, Okay, This game may look so fun, but it isn't so fun. I started playing this and it was okay, but then when I went on the voyage/trip to Oregon, it was boring! Nothing to really do and then the game started to mess up...like half of the screen went black. This game is so different than Oregon Trail 3(and not in a good way). I reccomend Oregon Trail 3 instead of this piece of junk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quick Time Blues February 20, 2000
By A Customer
We purchased this product for our child based on a review in Consumer Reports Magazine. The program requires Quick Time 3, and will not run if you have Quick Time 4 installed on your computer. Some of our other children's software includes Quick Time 4 as part of the installation procedure. As a result we must uninstall Quick Time 4 , and reinstall Oregon Trail 4th Edition each time we use the program.

1.0 out of 5 stars oregon trails fourth ed. October 18, 2000
By A Customer
The first CD works fine. But the second will not load, and it is frustrating. We enjoy the oregon trails II and use it daily in the detention center I work for in AZ. We received only half the value of the product we paided for. A big let down. Take them off the shelves in the stores.

1.0 out of 5 stars Technical difficulties ruin the fun November 12, 2000
By Lucy
We excahnged our first copy of this game because it kept freezing the computer when we put in the second disk. The new disk has the same problems and we've never gotten beyond the first disk. The kids have stopped trying and I'm sorry that I did not ask for a full refund. I thought we were doing something wrong until I read the other reviews and see that many people have had the same problem. Big dissapointment:-(

1.0 out of 5 stars frustrating to use March 14, 2000
By A Customer
I like some of the changes made between this one and edition number 3 but I agree with the other reviews in terms of technical problems. It took a while to figure out how to get it to work. Only when I changed my monitor to show high color vs. true color could I get it to work and then I only happened to try this based on the system requirements listed on the box not based on instructions for set-up. Even so I still keep coming up with technical glitches that I didn't have with the earlier edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy Oregon Trails 4 December 19, 2000
I only wish I had read these reviews before I wasted my money on this game. Oregon Trails 3 was 10 times better. Even the first edition was lots better. Not only is the playing of it slow and boring, but theres technicals problems. It was a total disappointment!
