American Girl - Julie saves the eagles

Game Genre(s): Kids

Full Description

A girl who looks more like the girl across the street - your girlfriend, sister, daughter, than like Barbie or anyone of the Bratz family - what a relief. THQ/Mattel has a wonderful property here. What took so long?

The game's character is Julie Albright, an attractive 9-year old in jeans who finds out about endangered species and goes on to save a family of bald eagles. Her mom's around, her dad's around - they seem to live in different parts of San Francisco though. Mom is available for hints and so is her best friend Ivy. Julie's diary keeps track of her discoveries, has a ""To Do"" list and offers players accompanying pages in which to make their own notes. First time I have seen that, and it is nice touch.

The kids wander around 1970 San Francisco - Chinatown, North Beach, Golden Gate Park - exploring and learning about things - how to rescue an owl, what ""endangered species"" means and learning enough Chinese to help an old man with a remedy for a bellyache. Travel is done by going to a bus stop and clicking on the European-style bus sign. Dialog is appropriate, and the characters fit right into the San Francisco milieu and the voices match the characters well. The two mini games are minimally challenging - not so hard as to prove frustrating, and one must be won to proceed to the next level/location. Solutions to questions are found by going into the school library - even on Saturday.

  • Fun Factor: Nice San Francisco exploration.
  • Female Factor: Julie is a wonderful realistic character.
  • Player Friendly: Easy saves-easy mini-games.

Comments: This game is very confusing and I do not understand it. I do not recommend this game for any one to play. It does not give any directions on how to play this game at all. It needs a lot of improvement.
