This game is getting a very high rating by reviewers. Problem is, the reviews shown are NOT for this game! Many reviews are talking about teaching typing, coloring dalmations, etc. None of that applies to The Emperor's New Groove. There apparently are other versions of "Activity Centers", and reviews shown are for them.
Emperor's New Groove doesn't run on Windows XP, not even in compatability mode. I downloaded the patch required, and parts run, but not all. And the parts that run are very dull for anyone over about the age of 4. I got the game for our 6 year old, and it's not in the slightest bit challenging or entertaining. One of the game sections won't run at all, even with the patch. Even if this game ran perfectly, it would bore a normal 5 yr. old, so I can't imagine how they rated it for up to age 8.
I don't think Amazon should be selling this. Come on, how many people haven't ugraded since Windows 98? The only kids who would enjoy this game probably live in a third world country where computers and possibily electricity are novel inventions. Amazon and/or Disney should check into donating the games they have left.
