Good family funJan 09, 2009
By Maryan Staske
Planet Earth Interactive DVD Game is a wonderful learning game for the entire family. I played it with kids from 5 to 15 and everyone enjoyed it. The photography is awesome, it moves as fast as you want it to, and the puzzle is an added benefit. I highly recommend this game.

Planet Earth DVD GameNov 15, 2008
By Denise D. Faucheux
My son and I just finished playing this game for about 10 minutes and the same question about sea snakes was asked at least 5 times. The company's website is pretty lame. There are only two FAQs and they are both about another game. I'm going to try contacting the company at this email address to see if I can get some help[...].
The website provides an option to return a game.....if you live in Australia

Very disappointing!!!!!Mar 03, 2008
I paid $[...] for this game... what a disappointment. The second time we played it it repeated questions that it had asked in the first game. By the third time we played it we had to keep taking our turns over and over to avoid the questions that we already had in the 1st & 2nd games. You'd think they could put enough questions on this so that they didn't repeat themselves just the SECOND time we played. I am very disgusted... so much for learning a lot when you play... I guess we'll just be answering the same questions over and over. Other than that the pictures are really cool.

I see sea snakesOct 20, 2010
By Snake Boy
Hey, all those people complaining about the sea snake - why don't you email the manufacturer before you mouth off about it on Amazon. Yes the manufacturer acknowledged that one particular batch of this game had a bug, apparently it was only related to one particular chip inside a number of cheaper brands of DVD players (you can't test for everything). This bug is apparently invoked when you press stop twice and then resume the game - so the solution is to stop mashing the buttons and be patient with the game. All DVD technology is dicey at the best of times. I think if you see repeat questions you should eject the disk. Turn your DVD player off for a moment or two to clear the memory. Then re-insert the disk and start playing again - you *should* receive a new batch of questions. Remember DVD players have less memory than a nokia phone - it's a miracle these things actually work.
Complaints about the questions being too easy, or not educational enough are quite bizarre. The game is obviously meant for kids and families to play together. If there aren't a few easy ones in there you're never going to get to the goal. There's literally 100s of questions on the disk, so I find it hard to believe the complaints about repeat questions. Considering this game plays on you regular DVD play, it's actually pretty good, my kids love it. To all the people who complain about this game - go play mario-kart. It's a DVD game dudes, it cost $20 - what do you expect?

Don't botherDec 27, 2008
We got this for our daughter, and sat down to play it this evening. Though the nature footage is impressive, this is absolutely the worst question and answer game I have ever played. Educational? Hardly. Some examples. It asks the player--True or False--if a salamder lives to be 120. No is the correct answer--only 80. So, what's the point? It's old--but not quite that old? Next question, and this time multiple choice. Some monkey dives "regularly" to a certain depth for some kind of food. The choices: 6.5 feet, 8 feet, or 8.5 feet. The answer: 6.5 feet. Again--what have we learned here? Anything? And one must question if this answer is actually true. But the next question made me want to quit playing the game. Another multiple choice, we were asked the length of the blue whale. The player answered correctly (98 feet); but the chap on the DVD announced that the correct answer was 49 feet! Who created this game? They should be ashamed of themselves.
