A nightmare to install - but fairly educational
on 10 August 2005
This software was a nightmare to install, I should have learned from the last GSP offering but I didn't. If you have XP service pack 2 you will still need to download the patch for service pack 1 once that is loaded you will then need to download another patch from the read me file! that done it will be neccesary to update your audio drivers and then re install the CD again! What a nightmare, still apparently if I buy any DK / GSP software in the future I will not need to do all of it again! Hmmmm right.
The reason we bought this was because my daughter's school had been using it and my daughter wanted to complete it to get her rewards (on the disc) It struck me as a bit boring at times but she stuck to it and finished the tutorials and the whole disc in one day, well 3 hours actually, + the 2 hours to install it!
For a younger child who is starting out on year 2 studies it will probably take longer as they will not have covered some of the topics (my daughter is 7) so aim for 6 year olds and you will be fine.
Overall it gets a 3 because it was educational and it did work eventually.
