1995 iN!-Ovation Award
The First Emperor of China
Start with a superb documentary, mix in quality graphics, a fine musical score, “periscopable” maps, and an in-depth bibliography, and you’d have a top-notch CD-ROM. When these ingredients serve to illuminate subject matter as fascinating and scholarly as The First Emperor of China (The Voyager Co.), you understand what makes multimedia so compelling. Explore the huge tomb complex of Qin Shi Huang Di (221-206 BC), the first emperor of China: take a tour of The Great Wall, or spend time studying the seven thousand-plus figures of warriors and horses in the Qin Museum. Everything about this disc works, and nothing in this disc will disappoint you.
– February 1995
