I can't say I approve of this software being take 'too' seriously; their are far too many unrealistic circumstances in the interactive lessons to make it believable.
As one instance in the Home section, the young girl screams and then calmly says "I fell over". Then when you inspect her hand, their is a nasty looking 1 inch gash that is highly dramatic given that the kitchen floor is completely clean and free of objects! I've fallen down stairs and only bruised my arms.
Another instance, the Park, displays the individual (who is under concussion) lying in a perfect, rigid line. And apparently, he "just sought of bumped into" his friend playing football!
The narration that guides you through these situations is somewhat over calm and laughable; indeed, that might be quite a cynical comment, but no-one in their right mind observes huge gashes and cringing wounds whilst talking like a CBBC presenter.
If you don't feel like going through these situations (which I only do for fun now! Check out the old man on the 'Work' scene...), then if you end each one early a list of priorities and checkpoints is listed, which is far more helpful.
Their are also plenty of other options to have a browse of, including a Test, First Aid Kit inventory, and getting know the human body.
If you are thinking of buying this or already do and can't get the program to run, you will need to download and save 2 .DLL files to your computer in order to run it. This is because this was designed for Windows 95 - 2000 architecture, so if you're running XP or Vista, please search Google for the following files, and save them to the directory listed below to get the application to run.
WING.DLL (Drag into the 'System' folder on your Hard Drive)
WING32.DLL (Drag into the 'system32' folder on your Hard Drive)
If you are running Vista, you will need both files. If you're running XP, you will only need WING32.DLL
