    "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.
