This game is pretty good if you give it time....

I quess I was looking for the bad in this game after reading these reviews but I decided to purchase and see for my self. I put it down after the first time thinking the game was locking up because I didn't read manual that says to tap twice to remove windows or open them. Then after knowing that I found you have to tap twice fast no delays between or it won't work. Once I gort the hang of that, which I admit is not very friendly why not just tap once, I was fine. You have to explore Geopedia alot to learn the facts before playing the game. If you don't you will be like other reviewers and have no fun with this game. So explore and learn facts first before anything.
Then the games are fun. Learn lanforms, cities, color flags, puzzles and etc. There are 10 mini games. then there is a treasure hunt game and yes you had better know the facts from Geopedia before getting into this one and rem. the tap twice fast deal. I like the map puzzle game and haven't played but 3 times so I haven't seen the map of the USA puzzle. I did the world map puzzle but I do hope the USA puzzle is there as I have seen it in screenshots. I also hope it has facts about each state which I haven't came across yet. So far I have just seen world facts and major city, landmarks.
I had to give this review to help with the bad reviews. If you rem to tap twice quickly and Study Geopedia section before just jumping into the games you will enjoy. If you just jump into games with out going through geopedia to learn facts you WILL be lost unless you know all the facts already. Children will need to know how to read before being able to play so they can read all the facts. And read manual because it gives facts of place when A button is pressed and then you scroll with direction pad to get lots more facts on same place. I can't wait to explore more and then help my child learn from this :) Parents would be wise to figure game out before giving to child.
