Summary

Who wants to solve 80 cases to be famous?

The Good

It is very interesting to see a spotted suspect for the first time. Very humorous. Graphics are good, animation is beautiful. Locations are interesting and they have a basical information. The questions vary from level to level.

The Bad

It is very little animation in game. When you saw the spotted suspect for very much times you are tired of it. So it is no animation to the end of game at all. The information is very little to be helpful. Variation of questions is only 3 groups. The number of cases to enter the hall of fame is too much.

The Bottom Line

The game is educational only for those, who already read much books on the american history, but game doesn't provide education for players. It is test only. Also when you've captured Carmen Sandiego after approximately 40 cases you don't finish the game, you must solve other 40 cases to be famous and enter the Hall of Fame. But the game is a very good addition to collection of Carmen SanDiego series.
