Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Oregon Trail: 40th Anniversary takes the game many of us remember playing as kids and brings it to the Wii system with a new, more updated feel.

Your main goal is to survive with as much of your family for the entire trip. You have only until the start of the winter season to complete the trek. If you don't make it before the snow starts to fall, the game ends and you have to start over. Oregon Trail is divided up into "Stories" each one having several chapters. You must complete and win all the chapters in each story to move on to the next one. For each level you get to chose your characters who each have their individual strengths. You also select a family heirloom to take with you that brings you good fortune in some way (i.e. food, health, oxen, etc.)

Oregon Trail Stories:
~Three Brave Brothers~ Race against your competitive brothers to get to the end of the trail before them.
~A Family Affair~ A story of romance and family life that progresses along the trail.
~Gold Rush~ Hopes of striking it rich with gold by panning for it along the trail to Oregon.
~Stuck in the Middle~ Surviving the hardships of war while trying to make it to the end of the trail.

Navigating your wagon:
You navigate your wagon with both the Wii remote and a nun-chuck. While it seems simple enough, the trail is full of obstacles to cause you difficulties. Rocks, downed trees, mud, lakes, tornadoes and wolves are just some of the obstacles you will run into along the way. As you go along, your wagon and oxen start to wear down, but there are wheels and horseshoes along the path for you to pick up to keep your crew going.

Hunting is back and much like it was in the old game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Essentially just one long boring wagon race. January 13, 2012
By Renee K

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to agree with Rick. I was incredibly excited to get this only to discover that it is too boring to play. I was expecting something like the earlier computer editions of Oregon Trail, where you could learn about what plants you needed to forage to feed your family, and discover what the best remedies for trail diseases and injuries. The towns and forts had stores with dozens of different items that they really would have sold in 1850. I owned the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th edition of Oregon Trail for PC, and they are all entirely superior to the Wii version. In the one hour of gameplay I forced myself to complete, all I did was steer a wagon around floating logs and rocks. So ridiculous. I wish they would just rerelease the 3rd edition for XP or Windows 7.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Update December 16, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This version seems pretty different from the old ones at first. You have to drive the wagon yourself and avoid obstacles and pick up supplies. But then you realize that just like before you need to make sure you have enough supplies to make the trip. As you drive, people in your family can get sick (yes, there's dysentery!) you can get robbed and other events can happen.
I think this is a great new version, and my 5-year-old enjoys driving the wagon, although she needs me to read the events for her. I like how it has everything from the original but also some new ideas too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and takes me back to my younger days!!! December 16, 2011
By Caden27
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off I don't understand the low ratings on this game. I grew up playing the old school Oregon Trail in school. It was so much fun then and as I have gotten older I often wished I could play it again!! This is just a more modern version of the game but keeps it simple and classic. Great Game! I wasn't let down at all by this game. Maybe people are just expecting too much from a simple, fun yet AWESOME game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Oregon Trail game ever!! October 31, 2013
By PhilV
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
There was great potential for this game, but developers did something extremely stupid, they took every thing out. No more do u get all the monuments such as Chimney and Independence Rock or Soda Springs etc. You get a few but a very minute few.

Rivers: You basically just ford right through them, no decision on whether to ford, caulk, take ferry if there is one, hire an Indian to help, or take the bridge.

Injuries and Sicknesses: You get no choice on how to treat the injury or sickness just whether to treat with medicine or ignore. FYI There is barely any medicine to be had in the game once u start out, stock up in town if u can and don't trade it.

Hills: None, they took them completely out, no hills to climb which means no deciding on whether to use rope and chains, anchor the wagon, double team animals, lock wheels etc.

Trading: There but completely watered down. You click a guy you get one trade like 2 medicine for 3 pieces of clothing. You don't get to pick what you want to trade for or get to haggle, simply a yes or no.

Winter: If you get to Winter game over. You no longer get to continue and brave the elements and try to survive through winter to get to your destination it simply ends.

There is no travelling through fog, thunderstorms(there is rain), wildfire's, dust storms or anything like that. There are rolling rocks and twisters to avoid.

This is the worst Oregon Trail game period. The 1st Oregon Trail on the pc is better than this garbage. If you want to play a good Oregon Trail game spend your money on any PC version you'll be a lot more satisfied with your purchase.

This is not as awesome as the old-school version my husband and I grew up playing. He's only played it once or twice since we got it; we were a little disappointed by it.
