    5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent educational and FUN game 16 Nov. 2009
    I bought this as part of the triple pack for my son who'd outgrown his jump ahead games (which we enjoyed so much we bought all the set from nursary upwards).

    I'd found the year 3 game good but a little disappointing, but this game doesn't have any of the problems i had with the year 3 game.

    The level of graphics and story is much better than the jump ahead games (it's very 'cartoony' though and so don't expect fabulous graphics compared to some of the modern 'realistic' games - but it's great for the age range concerned).

    It also has a good 'story' whereby, a cartoon sequence plays each time the player reaches a certain part of the game - showing how the mystery is being solved. this is certainly good for an older child. It's a bit corny for an adult, but the kids love it.

    The best thing i like about it though, is the games, it feels like there's ALOT of games to play each teaching different skills - on the back is seems to have fewer than the year 3 game, but i suspect it feels more because children have to really practice before unlocking the next level - a definite improvement from year 3 game.

    Also the game automatically adjusts the level and you can monitor which levels the child has found tricky and which one's they've done well in. My son was completely engrosed, and finished the game pretty quickly, i'm hoping that once he's finsihed all the games, he'll revisit it and play the game again on a slightly harder level.

    A real thumbs up from me.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Cluefinders DVD 29 April 2009
    By Elsie
    This dvd is a good follow-on from Cludfinders Year 3. The work is obviously progressively harder but the format is very similar to the previous DVD and the children seem to enjoy this familiarity meaning they can quite quickly work on their own and just seeking help when they need it. A good use as preparation for Year 4 or as a back-up for work covered at school but in a more fun way.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Cluefinders Year 4 Adventures 3 Aug. 2010
    By Jane P
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this for my 8 year old daughter to keep her amused in the holidays, we had Cluefinders Year 3 and she found it brilliant. She found the Year 4 more challenging mathematically and some of the problems were a little difficult I felt for her age - she needs quite a bit of help with some parts. Having said that it's great fun and she can muddle along anyway by guesswork - not quite what we had in mind!! All in all a great buy for those rainy days, we already have year 5 on standby, but I think that will be some way off.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Busy mum loves this game 1 Dec. 2007
    My 9 year old loves this game, we thoroughly recommend it. The game practices maths, reading and geography skills but is fun and exciting.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Loved them 2 Jan. 2011
    By Tom
    I am now 15 and studying at a grammar school, after searching through a cupboard I though i would show my appreciation for a great game.
    I would whole heartedly recommend them although in my case they were bought erroneously when i was actually 4 (watch out for that) I still managed to complete it and had a fantastic time doing so.
    They really helped introduce me to many ideas such as fractions, hieroglyphs and logical thinking.
    I would really recommend them for any gifted year 3 who needs a challenge and anyone going into year 4.
    This will sound corny but they do make learning fun.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Year 4 cluefinders fantastic! 8 Aug. 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I cannot praise this series enough! My 3 children absolutely love it and beg for extra computer time to play it. Fab when consider that they are learning so much and it is reinforcing Problem solving skills (one of those tricky areas most kids struggle with). The learning activites are rewarded by an exciting cartoon strip. As you progress up each level you unlock another piece of the exciting story so the incentive is there to solve the tasks to find out what happens next. We now have all 4 (3,4,5, and 6) of these and only wish there was more in the series! This is such a great way of keeping their brains ticking over during the summer holidays.
    Reccomend also the 'Ed alive' programmes 'Volcanic panic' and 'Baggin' the dragon' for maths practice during term time. All of these programmes have really helped my children to improve and grow in confidence particularly in maths.
