This game does not TEACH you geography at all in a structured way. There a lot of mini games which are actually not that fun in which you need to have already known a lot of geography to pass/finish.
I couldn't figure out where the lesson plan or if there was a lesson plan. From what I can tell after touching everything it's basically learning by trail and error.
What was even more frustrating was the responsiveness of the touch pad with the game. I play a lot of games and I know my DS touch pad works well and it was really annoying when I was trying to move or touch things in this game that I had to do it multiple times for it to register that action. It could be that the game was just slow and it was slow... it was very slow, I tested it out and sometimes it was just slow but most of the time it's just not registering my touches.
I believe that they made the place you're suppose to touch so exact that it doesn't move on unless you touch that particular pixel which can be hard to find, I usually just mash around the area I know where it's suppose to be an hope I touch that pixel.
I can forgive bad graphics (this game has horrible graphics). I can forgive badly made mini games (most of the mini games were bad but some were sort of fun). I can't forgive bad responsiveness. When I touch something with my stylist I want it to register in the first touch not the 5th touch.
I spent about 2 hours with this game and my FI tried this game thinking that I was being too hard on it, he played for about 15 minutes. We both agree this is probably the worst game ever that we own and we own a lot of DS games.
DON"T BUY THIS GAME!
First it takes a long time just to try to load one game.
The games are not intuitive.
The world map where you can fly your plane above does not even show the name of the country just the city!.
I felt I could learn from it and teach my kids at the same time, they tried to play it, it is too hard for them.
Would not recommend even for just adults.
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.
