4.0 out of 5 stars So quiet, but it works, June 6, 2009
Works great to dry your shoes or boot liners but it does take awhile if they are really soaked. It uses the simple principal of hot air rising, there is no fan or anything like that, so it isn't real speedy but it is silent. Oh, and do NOT use it without the foot forms in place. I did, trying to dry some gloves, and it caused the tubes to warp and melt -- my own fault, the instructions did say not to do that, but I forgot. Too bad there isn't a label right on the device as a reminder. Oh well, it still works, just isn't as "pretty" anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down, June 6, 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
My young teenage daughter can't keep her hands off this. It is fascinating to play with and feels great. It is nice and heavy, with a durable case and real metal pins, not cheap plastic like some other ones. If you like experiential art, this is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the primate lover, June 6, 2009

This review is from: Foam Mask Chimpanzee (Toy)
Fun little mask for the young primate lover in your life. We bought three and made a three headed monkey costume for Halloween -- worked great. Fun for the little ones just to run around in and act like, well, apes.

Very nice, my daughter was thrilled. The pearls are larger than I expected, and nicely rounded. Very satisfied and would recommend these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous trip down memory lane, February 9, 2008
Beautiful item, wonderfully packaged so it arrived in great shape.
The candy assortment was great fun, inspiring lots of reminiscing about where and when everyone had this type of candy before. Great conversation piece, very tasty, overall great fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for the system requirements, February 9, 2008
Be sure to double check the system requirements using the Viva Media web site before you buy!

The 1.0 version had a bug where it would not start even though it installed properly, for which the developer issued a patch.
This version (1.5) has the same problem, but NO PATCH is available. When I emailed Viva Media about the situation, they responded that I didn't have enough graphics memory. Too bad those requirements are NOT spelled out in the Amazon listing!

Buyer beware!

2.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic and gets dull, February 9, 2008
This review is from: Toy Factory (Video Game)
No instructions come with the game so it takes awhile to figure out what you're supposed to do. Once you do figure it out, it gets dull quickly -- lots of the same kinds of thing over and over just getting faster each time.

The true test: My 10 year old said it was fun the first time she played it, but she has never voluntarily sat down to play it since that first time.

I'd recommend something more entertaining, like Fizzball.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shameless attempt to get you to buy a sequel, February 9, 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Good points: Beautiful graphics, immersive sound, likeable main character, the (unrealized) potential for a good story

Unfortunately the rest is all bad.

The PC interface, which is clumsy and requires two hands at all times, will make you seasick or frustrated.

Multiple MANDATORY (and boring) combat scenes break up the game and add absolutly NOTHING to the plot.

Many, many very LONG cutscenes require you to sit and watch the characters have conversations. Too bad if the dog has to go out at that moment! Hope you have a saved game or you won't know what's going on after that! Oh, you did have a saved game? Well, guess what, maybe you can space-bar your way through the parts you already saw, or maybe not, just depends I guess on whether the designers cared enough to include that particular feature at that particular moment.

Jarring profanity at several points, which also adds absolutely nothing to the game. I guess they just really wanted that "Mature" rating.

Raunchy humor in some spots, which, again, adds nothing to the game. Apparently they consulted 5th grade boys on what might be a funny pun.

Very few puzzles of any sort. Most "puzzles" are merely timed action sequences requiring you to guess the right direction to run before something eats you or zaps you or squashes you or whatever. The (very) few actual puzzles are primarily shuttling: Get the guy a drink, oops go to the market to get the ingredients, oops back to the tavern, oops back to the market, oops now to the other side of town, oops back to the market, oops back to the tavern, etc. etc. By the time you finally "solve" the thing you won't care anymore.

You can die. And you will. Repeatedly.

Frequently, you can't spend time exploring the environment. Or you'll die. Again.

The ending is a complete and total disappointment. Absolutely NOTHING in the entire plot is resolved. Apparently all the heroine's tribulations amounted to nothing -- or maybe not -- the main characters all die -- or maybe not -- the bad guys win -- or maybe not. You'll be left wondering why you just spent 20 hours of your life tolerating this monstrosity since there was apparently no point.

And the final insult: In order to see the last scene of the game you MUST sit through ALL of the CREDITS first!! Unbelievable. The designers should quite literally be ashamed of themselves.

I can't imagine why this won game of the year other than beauty of graphics or sheer length.

Bottom line:
If you want an Action or RPG game look elsewhere.
If you want an Adventure game, look elsewhere.
If you want an interactive story with a well-thought-out plot that ends with a satisfying conclusion, look elsewhere.
If you want to sit and watch a long movie with periodic frantic button mashing which ultimately "ends" in a shameless insistence that you buy a yet-unreleased (and maybe never to be created) sequel to have a clue what's going on, this is your game.

Instead, I'd recommend:
Syberia & Syberia 2 (buy them at the same time -- they're short)
The Longest Journey (the original)
Myst: Riven

Happy gaming!
