The Polar Express Screensaver

By Warner Bros. Entertainment Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Despite the exciting possibilities of roaring trains and Santa visits, The Polar Express Screensaver consists entirely of one small picture in a frame with snow falling in front of it. Sure, the picture of a train passing by some houses looks attractive and well-rendered. OK, the snowflakes are pretty and accumulate for a while at the bottom of the frame, then swirl around again for a snowglobe effect. And fine, it's free. But there are no settings, no audio effects, no music, and, worst of all, a significant border around the picture that experiences no snowfall and thus no screensaver action. While you're waiting for something to actually happen, you have time to wonder why snow is falling from a clear sky, and why such a basic screensaver required a restart to install. You also have to uninstall it manually. The Polar Express Screensaver might appeal to fans of the movie.

Developer's Description

A young boy lies awake in his room one snowy Christmas, excited and alert. He's listening for a sound he's afraid he might never hear--the ringing of Santa's sleigh. Suddenly the boy is startled by a thunderous roar, and sees the most amazing sight.
