4.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Old Fashion, But Pretty Good December 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
Couldn't beat the price of this game as an Amazon download. I took the risk after 2 poor reviews and glad I did. Spent an afternoon playing with my 7 year old daughter while we were stuck inside during a snowstorm. I had no problem with the download. I have a Windows 7 64-bit system. The graphics are a bit old fashion. The dialogue between characters can be a bit lengthy, but we had a good time. When we exited the game the first time (after beating the first two missions), it automatically saved. I thought it was good value for the price I paid. My daughter needed some help, but was independent at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun, but not what I expected June 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was trying to find the full-on game that we used to play way back in the 90s. This is just one "episode," and once you've solved it once, it's just the same thing every time you play. I was looking for the one that has a different case every time. Oh well, I'll keep looking! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fourth Grade Class Loves It April 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
My fourth grade class loves playing this game during free time. It teaches them random tidbits of world geography, but also promotes good listening/focusing skills. They have to pay close attention to understand the hints and find clues!

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging
This game incorporated social studies concepts but took a long time to play. We had difficulty saving progress and the dialogue took too long and was very repetitive.

I thought it moved too slowly and it is clearly for young children. I like the original games the best.

I love this game!! One of the best purchases ever. The timing of the shipping was 5 minutes. Plus, additional 5 minute wait for downloading. I grew up watching the PBS show.

My kids loved this game. My three year old loves to help even though it's too hard for him, but my 10 & 12 yr old really enjoyed it. Only thing is that it went by way too fast. Read more

The game is okay. It is hard to play and sometimes understand. I wish it came with a Strategy Guide to help with playing the game.
