Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I spent an hour wringing my hands at the store deciding whether or not to plunk down the $50 bucks for this game. I love word games from Boggle, to Scrabble, to the Jumble in the newspaper. My concern was that Ubisoft might have dumbed the content down for an audience of younger gamers. Three minutes into the game I saw the words "paroxysm" and "raffishness" pop up and I knew they had done nothing of the sort. The result is a great success that exceed my high expectations of how a word training game might be. The game is not anything like the shallow Brain Age/Big Brain Academy but rather an in depth word training game designed by phd linguists. There is some actual meat to this game unlike the others that satisfies your quest for knowledge and fun simultaneously. The game really trains your vocabulary skills. In fact I would think it would even be acceptable for someone studying for the vocabulary portion of an ACT, SAT, or the graduate GRE Exam and even ESL. From the get go Word Coach tests the player to find a baseline at which to start building from and provides tutorials on how to play the learning games. The controls are really easy and really satisfying that is fun to carry out. The spray painting of letters takes a few minutes to get but within no time it'll feel second nature. I began and within about 40 minutes had reached my quota for the day. After that you can continue playing but the game won't rate you or introduce too many words as there is science and thought going on to keep the learning of words manageable. As soon as I sat down the controller my Mom a former English teacher picked up the game and played for an hour and a half, and she "doesn't like games" but there was something about this one. So you'll find it accessible for the non gamer as well. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Vocabulary and Spelling Done Right November 7, 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My Word Coach
Do you have a kid who hasn't read enough to build a large vocabulary and strong spelling skills? This game provides lots of word practice with a series of different games -- my son seemed almost surprised at the end of his first series that he had learned so much. There's lots of reading (definitions, etc.) which I think would make it tricky for kids much younger than ten. Each player sets a profile(up to 8 profiles - after that you play as a guest or delete a prior profile)that provides progress graphs and high score history for encouragement. There are vocabulary games (e.g. Split Decision where you match the word on the screen to its correct definition) and spelling games (what could be more fun than grafitti-style spray painting to fill in the missing letter or correct a wrong letter?), with six training games in all. We haven't tried the multiplayer option yet, nor have we used the DS to play Missing Letter. There appear to be lots of options to keep a player's interst as the game gets harder -- for instance, both definitions may be wrong in Split Decision. My soon-to-be eleven year old played for over two hours tonight -- there's a slight learning curve, but he figured it out on his own without getting frustrated. He intuitively began picking up on clues such as how to guess a word from the definition. My son says it's "lots of fun -- almost, but not quite, like a regular game." There's an emphasis on vocabulary that should prove helpful to young readers who have a basic familiarity with a word, but the game also provides lots of spelling opportunities. I predict libraries and after-school programs will be holding lots of competitions with this game. We liked Spelling Challenges (DS version is portable and only $20 ) -- we love My Word Coach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good tool for learning new words via the Wii! December 31, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just a word of warning - I had a little trouble with the controls, getting the screen to scroll either to the right or the left - seemed it did opposite to what I wanted.

I still have some learning to do on that end but when talking about the content of the game - it's excellent! Lots of games to keep the player going and what's nice is that REAL learning is taking place. This is very simlar to the DS game in content but certainly easier for us "visually challenged" presbyopic folks (that means we need reading glasses!!).

If it takes a short while to get used to the controls - hang in there. I think the game is worth getting the hang of the controls. And hey, it's one place where you can spraypaint letters and not get chastized for it!

3.0 out of 5 stars An Innovative, but Flawed Game January 28, 2008
By Kara
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
My husband and I are in our early twenties and are both previous english majors who are enamored with words. We did not have fun with this game.

1. In terms of ease of gameplay, the controls are awful. They appear to have wanted to take advantage of the novelty of the wii-mote with no thought as to how the difficulty of maneuvering would impact gameplay.
2. The overall tone of the walk-through and the grading was a bit patronizing.
3. Performing the same tasks over and over again in order to open new ones was not interesting.
4. While they managed to pick challenging vocabulary, much of the words do not seem like particularly useful terms to know.
5. The competition with other players is lacking.

I think there are better games, particularly on the DS and the Wii, to challenge people mentally. I personally favor Big Brain Academy over this game. While those games do not pay much attention to vocabulary or spelling, this game proves to me that there is still a ways to go before we master bringing those subjects into a video game format.

My son loves games and he really enjoyed this but not because it challenged him at all. It was cute I guess.

This game is simple, but fun. I would have rated it a 5 if there were more words available. I find that the words start repeating after a while, but it is still worth the purchase.
