MultiMedia Schools, May 1994
"J.F.K. Assassination, A Visual Investigation is a reference
work that documents in pictures, text and film events surrounding the
assassination, on November 22, 1963, of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas,
Texas. It is well put together and effectively integrates its multimedia
components for easy use. "
"This CD-ROM effectively integrates a wide variety of
multimedia into an accessible and appealing package that is likely to receive
focused but serious use from interested students and faculty."
Computer Life, October 1994
"What's great about this disc is that although it presents
hours of facts, theories, reports, and images, it doesn't draw any conclusions
- it just makes it pretty tough to believe any of the official ones."
PC Magazine, September 13, 1994
"JFK Assassination: A Visual Investigation is more than a
good history program; it's a model for how such programs should be put
together. The written material includes the full text of two books on the
Kennedy assassination - Crossfire, by Jim Marrs (the basis of Oliver
Stone's film JFK), and The John F. Kennedy Assassination: A Complete Book of
Facts - as well as the Warren Commission Report.
"All of the text is easily accessible: You can use an index,
a retrieval engine, or a copious array of hyperlinks to find material on the
events of November 22, 1963. There's a lot of material here; for example, a
search on Parkland leads to 137 references to Parkland Memorial
"JFK Assassination comes with 30 minutes of full-motion,
full-screen video clips documenting the assassination, including the Zapruder
film and other assassination eyewitness films. There are 22 computer-animated
depictions of key events, showing such details as bullet angles, and an indexed
photo library. Different portions of the program present biographical facts
about President Kennedy, the events in Dallas, conspiracy theories, and the
aftermath of the assassination. Regardless of your theories about the Kennedy
assassination, this disk will inform and entertain you."
Electronic Entertainment - Best Multimedia Title:
"More than 30 years after the fact, thousands of movies,
books, and magazine articles still haven't been able to decipher the myth and
mystery of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Medio's J.F.K.
Assassination: A Visual Investigation brilliantly employs multimedia technology
to let you conduct your own investigation of the tangled web of fact, fiction,
and conspiracy theory surrounding this fateful incident in American
