Summary: Zero stars
Review: Don't buy this game! It totally crashes my pc (Compaq wi WinXP)and from the other posts it appears I am not alone. This is a relatively new PC with pleny of memory and processor. Did not make for a happy Christmas moment!
I am always extra disappointed when the manufaturer has a lame web site with no support like VU. Did the driver update dance etc..no luck.

Rating: 1 stars
Summary: Does Not Work
Review: I installed this game on both of my computers. Both of them are new and far exceed the minimum requirements to run the game. The game will not run on either machine. I can install the program but the game will not start at all. Very disappointing for my 5 year old who was so excited and has been waiting forever to play this game. I sealed the box back up and returned it to WalMart, even though I didn't buy it there. I got store credit which was fine with me.

Rating: 4 stars
Summary: Good game
Review: I was a little worried about buying this for my 4yr old because of all the computer problems people have reported here, but it works just fine. My son loves everything Cat in the Hat, so he adores this game. Overall, a pleasant game. (The background music gets a little annoying, so that's why I gave it 4 stars.)

Rating: 1 stars
Summary: Not worth it unless it's fixed
Review: Installed the software on three systems that all far exceed the minimum system (and recommended) requirements. Game wouldn't start on any of them. No patch is available on the vendor's support website.

Rating: 1 stars
Summary: 0 stars -- Could not play game!
Review: It is comforting to know, after reading the other reviews, that I wasn't the only one having problems getting this game to work.
Even after installing more memory and updating my video card driver so that my system would far exceed the requirements, the game still caused my system to crash. There must have been a rush to get this game out in time for the movie release. I too have one disappointed youngster since Christmas morning -- guess this gift goes back to Santa.

Rating: 4 stars
Summary: Cat to the Rescue
Review: My husband bought this game for our 4 year old daughter's Christmas gift. She loves to play it, and actually goes to level 4 , with a little help from her father, by herself. Whenever she starts getting cranky, we always call on Cat's help, as she loves to play this game...She also loves it as she spends quality time playing with her father.

Rating: 1 stars
Summary: Major Disappointment
Review: Spent 30 minutes on the phone with tech support and still could not get game to work. Installing game would shut the whole computer down. No fix available and only suggestion is to either wait for a fix by continuing to watch website for a patch or send it back to company for refund which must be done within 90 days of purchase. I will be sending it back for a refund. Can't believe they didn't test this game better before releasing it to the public. Have one very disappointed little girl on our hands since this was the only computer game she received for Christmas!

Rating: 4 stars
Summary: Cat in the Hat
Review: The game Cat in the Hat has been a very challenging game for my 4 year old son. He has made it to level 6 and now he is stuck. I wish they gave you some game pointers for all the different aspects of the games. The area we are stuck on the the broiler room. (trying to get the crablock) My son loves this game and has had a great time playing it. We have experienced no crashes on our computer.

Rating: 4 stars
Summary: No troubles at all...
Review: The low ratings listed here, before myself ,are mostly based on the installation issues. However, i had not trouble one installing this. It ran beautifully and never crashed. It seems like their issues may be with their own computers. As far as the game itself is concerned, the gameplay is terrific for the 3-9 year old area. Beautiful Seussian landscapes follow you throughout the game while you 'Side-scroll' your way through a mostly 'Platform' style game. Overall, very nicely done. However, the cut scenes lack enough sound effects to fill strangely quiet times within the game. Mike Myers throws his two cents in, though it is mostly cut right out of the movie. Those points are not important enough to get in the way of the good points of the game. My 5 year old son is absorbed by this game. I actually enjoy it, myself. Truly, as this game lowers in price and the mediocre movie leaves our memory, this game will stand out as one of the better movie-based games made to date. Very enjoyable.
