Ah, the sweet Childhood Memories! If you are anywhere near my age, then you probably had a computer(yes one) computer at your school and that computer had a neat little game on it called Oregon Trail. You and your “family” would travel the Trail headed West and have to deal with all kinds of difficulties from sickness, to lack of food, to Indians.
Guess what… that game is finally back and better than ever! The game is now available for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii!
Westward Ho! Welcome to the Oregon Trail! Your job is to lead your family across over 2 000 miles of rough terrain from Independence Missouri to Oregon City in the middle of the 19th century. They made the journey for adventure, fortune or freedom. Now you have the chance to relive history and start your own grand adventure. Will you survive? Will you prosper? It’s time to hit the trail!

I received the Wii Version to review because my poor boys still have the old DS Lite. Poor deprived kids. LOL! Anyway, I have already finished the Trail twice and finally broke down and let my kids play. We love it. The boys want to spend their whole time fishing and hunting instead of actually going through the trail. I, on the other hand, let my poor people suffer through sickness as I race against the clock to “beat my brother”. Fun, fun!
