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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bought this despite seeing poor reviews...bummer September 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
I got this for my 10 year old son - we had a great time until about halfway through when the game shut down (as my PC is pretty new, I'm assuming it was the game software). We had to restart at the beginning because our progress wasn't saved. About 4 minutes into the game, it shut off again and again, progress not saved. My own fault for ignoring the majority poor reviews and opting to listen to the positive ones. A $10 lesson I won't soon forget.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy November 9, 2013
By MU Lady
Verified Purchase
This is a terrible program. Not at all like the original game I played in my youth. Each time we play, it is the same "mystery" to solve but the worst part is that the game will not work properly (too many flaws to name) and seems to never end. It would have been a waste of money - except that Amazon very kindly gave us a refund once they saw all the other terrible reviews.
