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
