Reviewed on Pentium PC w/8Mb and CD

The Lion King Animated StoryBook was captivating for our reviewers’ kids. But as one of them noted, “it was a sure bet since the graphics and music were familiar.” Its long-term interest holding power was a question-mark, however for older children. The parents also felt the software’s educational value was limited -- it was viewed more as entertainment, than education. Several were also frustrated by the lengthy credits that scrolled on he screen when they attempted to exit the program. One parent noted that the credits ran longer than those in most Academy-Award winners speeches! (Hitting the space bar terminates those credits).

One parent concluded by noting: “Our children spent a long time on the program, mainly for entertainment purposes. On that basis, I would not recommend it as a reading program. But it sure beats watching TV.”
