i had rented this game and found out all this game was was an updated version of the old floppy disk game that I played back in elementary school. This games graphics are ok nothing spectacler. The gameplay is really boring just driving your wagon and reading alot of boring facts about the oregon trail. The controls are easy to use shake the wii remote to start your wagon and drive with the nunchuck. Shooting controls are simple too just point the wii remote at the screen and press b to shoot. I would not recommend this game unless you want a boring histroy lesson.

Good

A modern update of Oregon Trail. No more, no less.

Plain and simple, this plays the way you would think a modern iteration of the old Apple IIe game played. You won't find eye-popping graphics or sound here, but if you really liked Oregon Trail of old, you'll probably enjoy this version.

I was excited to get this game as I am easily amused, especially something from my childhood days. However I don't think they did a very good job of updating it. Your control over steering the wagon is wonky at best. You get used to it after a time, but there seems to be a lot more you should be able to do. Rent for some memories, but not if you expect it to be updates to perfection.
