There is so much information in it that actually extracting any can be very frustrating. A lot of people have difficulty understanding a railway timetable, so a book like this is likely to be overwhelming. A junior version of the book, or even a database on the disk, would have been preferable. The book apart though, I can think of worse ways of revising for a geography exam.
All of this may not sound very exciting but Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? has the ability to hook a player. After getting your first promotion you will want another which will keep you going as each promotion puts you closer to capturing the elusive Carmen Sandiego. My only complaint is that there are only 30 cities included in the game. Extra cities would have added more depth to the game.

Il aura fallu attendre un an pour voir arriver la version Commodore de cette enquête policière. La partie met en place des graphismes de qualité et bénéficie d'un maniement très aisé. Le jeu risque de lasser les détectives acharnés.
