"There must be better programs."

October 03, 2011  |  By iClaudius42

 |  Version: Solar System 3D Simulator 3

Pros

Does the job of displaying the solar system.

Cons

Limited view (I'd say "views" but there's only one).

"Basic and disappointing"

October 19, 2010  |  By wizzerman

 |  Version: Solar System 3D Simulator 3

Pros

It gives a crude display of the mechanics of the solar system, however there are far better products out there.

Cons

Graphics are awful. Interface is clunky

Summary

Recommend Earthsim 2 if you want beautiful images of the planets in the solar system or Celestia if you want a rich database of the heavenly bodies

"View of the Entire Solar System Animated"

January 04, 2010  |  By ZiorSam

 |  Version: Solar System 3D Simulator 3

Pros

This would be a good program for a child to see how the Solar System works.

Cons

Very little user control of the interface. Saturn does not look like it should because it looks like a rock with craters and the rings don't look right either.

Summary

This is only a good program for a small child to see how the Solar System works. If you want something with Great Graphics and more for other children and adults then download Celestia.

"Good For kids, Not good for anyone else"

August 06, 2009  |  By grassman85420

 |  Version: Solar System 3D Simulator 3

Pros

Its an educational simulation of the solar system. Children grades K-3 will find this very informative.

Cons

No control of the simulation. Can not manipulate the parameters by any means.

Summary

All in all this is an educational simulation of the solar system. This is good for K-3 grade children. As for anyone else this is poor simulation because there is no control other than changing the view point and getting information on any of the eight planets and Pluto. I only recommend this product to those with young children so they may learn about the solar system.

"Wow. What a mess!"

August 01, 2009  |  By LaJan7

 |  Version: Solar System 3D Simulator 3

Pros

If you haven't a clue, this program's for you! It will lead you well into the history of scientific thinking.

Cons

Hello! There's aren't 9 planets in our solar system once Pluto was downgraded to non-planet status. And that didn't even happen this year. How old IS this dog of a program? Pre-Asteroids game? Pre-Pong??? Graphics are laughable at best.

Summary

This was well worth the price: nothing. Thank goodness I didn't waste time downloading it; I was doing something else simultaneously. This is inaccurate, graphically bald, and basically embarrassing. c/net needs to maintain a higher quality of active downloads or people are going to stop using it as a source. Previous reviews are from years ago when something this shoddy might have passed as valuable. But those in c/net who know this download is still here are obviously not looking at it. Does c/net update its download stock or are items simply included and left here to grow outdated?

I'm sorry but another horrific download like this one and I'll use the site solely to point me towards the possibility of finding something interesting elsewhere.
