Edutaining Kids (Jun, 2001)
Veterans of Humongous' Junior Adventures will dive right into this underwater extravaganza, and will be pleased to discover that this adventure may last a little longer than previous ones because it is rather challenging. Newcomers or children under 7 might get frustrated too easily. Gather up a group of kids on a rainy afternoon and let them at this exciting program. They'll use their heads and have a great time.
Highly recommended--and not just for children--for anyone who loves old-fashioned, point-and-click, mouse-controlled adventure games with beautiful animation. If you have never before tried any of the Humongous products, then you are in for a pleasant surprise, and you may find yourself sneaking to the computer once your child is sound asleep.

I played with Clare for a lot of this game, not because she needed me to, but because we both wanted to. At 8 years old she would certainly be in the top end of the target audience, and my input into what to do next was negligible. She was able to work her way through all the conundrums, with only the occasional nudge. She thought that the game was "just right" as far as the challenges were concerned.

This adventure game provides kids with plenty of opportunities to develop problem-solving skills as they sleuth their way through a colorful underwater world. The storyline of the program is as fun and intelligent as its heroine, Freddi Fish. This fifth in the series is quite challenging and is best for children ages 7-9.

Учитывая отработанную годами технологию, мастерство художников и фантазию сценаристов, работавших над пятой частью приключений рыбки Фредди, трудно было ожидать чего-либо отличного от успеха. Поэтому смело рекомендую игру всем, у кого есть дети. "Рыбка Фредди 5: Чудовище Кораллового Рифа" - беспроигрышный вариант, как для своего ребенка, так и в качестве подарка детям друзей. Если, конечно, им не очень много лет.

Freddi Fish continues to delight. The player interface is extremely simple, the animation is very good, the graphics are excellent, and the characters are wonderful. Though the game features limited replay, it nonetheless presents a solid game for younger players.
De Zaak Zeemonster is nog altijd even hoogstaand als de vorige avonturen van Freddi Fish, maar na vijf episodes begint er op het concept toch een klein beetje sleet te komen.
