We tried so hard to find the older style jumpstart games. The non Jumpstart world ones that are actually learning game format not video game format. Ordered these and when it arrived I thought hurray it's the old style non jumpstart world version. Yet when we opened the box the disk said not "2nd grade fundamentals" but "Jumpstart world " I phoned the company and they said if I wanted the said advertised game I should pay to send the disk back to them and they would send me the advertised one as they don't actually sell it anymore. The same thing happened with the kindergarten version we ordered at the same time. Bottom line is unless you want "jumpstart world" don't order anything from this company. We found that the videogame format was addictive for the kids and made them grumpy when they got off it. On a technical note we have many problems with the game crashing at this moment despite being installed on both of our computers only the videogame portion is working. As soon as you try to play a learning game the program crashes. I am so fed up with this company.

My child really enjoys this title and each time she loads it up ends up spending at least an hour on it. The learning games are fun and the graphics appealing. The one improvement we would like to see is the integration of a standard PC game controller so that the central character can be more easily controlled as they walk around and explore the landscape.

The storyboard for this game really appeals to my child - she really likes the concept of being on missions of some sort, living in a location, being able to explore it and receiving rewards from the learning games that can be used to enhance her house. She seems to enjoy the three CDs - Fundamentals, Mystery Club and Field Trip equally - so much so she has yet to try the fourth disc!

There is one spot of confusion within the game however - whenever the character walks into one of the learning buildings, the games panels that come up are from all the different learning buildings/areas although you can only play the games from the panel belonging to the building into which you walked - I think it would have been better to have limited the interior game panel to the one meant to be associated with the particular building.

Don't waste your money Jan. 15 2008
By Frustrated Mom - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this for my daughter this Christmas. She was excited to use it but it brought nothing but frustration. She used the preschool version years ago and loved it so I thought this would be great. Was I Wrong!!! The directions are confusing and unclear. The pets playground doesn't even work. It crashes my computer every time we try it. The fundamentals disc didn't let her pick the character she wanted, it kept defaulting back to another character and maneuvering through the program was extremely confusing and very user UNFRIENDLY!! Not what you want from a childs program. How can a 6 or 7 year old figure this out if her 40 year old mother can't understand it! This product is poorly manufactured, I am extremely disappointed and I won't be buying from this company again.

Bad for Macs Jan. 6 2008
By Jeff Shepherd - Published on Amazon.com
You should only get this if you have a PC. They advertise that the 4th disk (Pet Playground) is PC only, which is fine. But the 3rd CD (Mystery Club Vol. 1) while saying Windows/Macintosh on it has nothing but PC .exe and .dll files -- nothing I can use on my Mac.

The first CD (Fundamentals) works on my Intel Mac in OS X native mode (OS X 10.5). It crashes on my PPC PowerBook G3. The second CD (Field Trip Adventure) is Classic only. It won't run on my Intel system, but is OK on my PPC.

My reaction to this (without running the programs) is that they are just throwing a bunch of stuff together. Here's a CD we made back in the OS 9 days, here's one we've made recently. Webkinz is really popular so we're tossing in virtual pets as well. Perhaps I'd be more impressed if I could get everything to run, but I'm seriously considering returning this mess.

Geared more to boys. Sept. 14 2007
By Ami - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased this for my daughter. She does not play it very often. It is not something that interests her. This game seems more geared to boys. Another issue is that the instructions are not clear. I had to play and figure out the games first, to explain to my daughter. I tried to let her figure it out on her own but she was getting frustrated. It took me an evening to sit down with trial and error to figure out how to play the games. I would not purchase it again. I would not recommend it to friends, in fact I would suggest against it if they have girls.

BEWARE - Subscription based product June 18 2010
By R. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
This is a subscription-based game. It says so inside the box in very small print. You get 2 levels with the game but you have to unlock anything beyond that. It is about $75 annually or $8 per month.
I missed that part. I thought I got a great deal (Costco $11) for this game and was really pissed off when I realized I have to pay so much more for this game.

One more annoying note - the game includes educational games (level based) and various activities such as drawing, playing with a virtual dog, planting virtual flowers, etc. The problem is that if you want to move to the next level of the educational games, you have to complete a ton of time-wasting activities and earn badges. I don't mind my daughter playing the non-educational parts but she literally has to spend twice as much time on them than on the "real" stuff. Having it a requirement to move up a level seems like a very silly requirement.

Had I known about these issues before I bought the game, I probably wouldn't have purchased it.

Intense frustration Oct. 1 2011
By Jo - Published on Amazon.com
We just bought this game (Jump Start Advanced, 2nd Grade Fundamentals) yesterday. My daughter saw a list of about 10 things she could do, with different characters, when she first played. But today, no matter what we click on, we are forced to one game and one character. And I can't find any instructions or explanations ANYWHERE. My daughter, age 6, says Jumpstart
"wants kids to feel stupid" and they are
"forcing me to have the same character and play the same game for the rest of my life" and she is
"never EVER going to play ANY Jumpstart game again EVER EVER EVER!"

And now we are going outside to smash the disc with a rock.
