Carmen offers kids an exceptional method of learning about the world in an educational but entertaining manner. The game will really test their skills as geographers. While trying to hunt down bad guys, they learn about cultures, history, languages, and locations. Because the kids are exposed to geography facts within the framework of adventure, the learning opportunities are fantastic. While kids learn key facts about 50 countries - their geography and history - they also read maps, exercise deductive reasoning, develop reading and research skills, follow directions, and collect data. It is easy to recognize the program exercises their higher-level thinking skills.
I found this program reinforces the very skills I am trying to teach - how to get kids to think and apply the higher-level thinking skills. Beware! They learn to think! They have fun! It is the best of both worlds for them and me, and I love it!!
Each mini-mission takes approximately 30 minutes and there is apparently no way to save the game until the mission has been completed. For that matter, even after certain missions have been completed, the game will not save. It could not be more frustrating to keep replaying the same missions over and over.
In sum, this game appears to be dumbed down quite a bit from many of the other mystery/problem solving games out there. The key clues needed to solve many of the puzzles are automatically put front and center after the puzzle has been selected so it takes little thought to solve them. It's also impossible to lose Carmen's trail. All the player has to do is contact the chief and she just point blank tells you "Go here. Do this." I think the game would be more challenging (and educational) if the Chief would give hints, perhaps for security purposes.Read more ›
I had played the original game -- about fifteen years ago I think-- which was a very intelligent set of geography puzzles and hours of fun.
This "new version" has taken a great concept and destroyed it by thinning the content to a point of triviality and replacing it with a mindless cartoon storyline that often goes into repeated inanities and makes no sense whatsoever.
