Based on the Disney movie of the same name, Toy Story 2 Activity Center offers kids six activities to be played alone, or, in some cases, with a friend. Situations from the movie are cleverly interwoven into the action, involving users with their favorite characters Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang.
Arcade-type activities dominate, as kids help guide their pals across a 6-lane highway packed with bumper-to-bumper traffic, aid Buzz as he assembles a rocket ship, and rescue Woody by moving Buzz across rows of luggage in search of the suitcase that holds Woody captive.
Other activities include a checkers-like board game, a simple art program that lets kids 'Create-A-Comic-Book', and 'Woody's Printing Press' with which kids can print greeting cards, postcards, a poster and stickers featuring the Toy Story 2 cast.
Some of the activities included in this program involve arcade skills and can therefore be frustrating for young users, especially those unfamiliar with arcade-type games. Those who lack arcade skill should be encouraged to develop strategies based on their previous trials with the games and use these strategies to achieve ultimate success.
