I was moved...touched...hungry!!! Hmmm...I wonder where I should take my lunch break, 17th Century France for some escargot, perhaps 500 A.D. China for some dim sum...the possibilities are endless.

If you’re playing this today, you’re armed with Google; that’s all you need, really. With 80+ cases to solve, you’ll be sleuthing for an age to catch Ms. Sandiego (thankfully, the game gives you a password after you solve every case). I could see the formula – gather clues, travel, gather clues, travel, issue a warrant, arrest, repeat – growing stale after a couple dozen cases. Still, few games have embodied the edutainment genre so well. With Where in Time, you will learn, and you will enjoy yourself… within reason.
Konami brings famous villain Carmen Sandiego and her 15 V.I.L.E. henchmen to the NES in a special new package that includes a vital weapon: The New American Desk Encyclopedia.
Even if you understand the clues, it’s still tricky spending your hours wisely. Adults will have a much easier time than kids, but it’s still challenging and fun, if not educational.
This title is a blast from the computer world of stardom. On the Nintendo, it comes off very well and offers a very interesting and sometimes educational quest for players. The music isn't the best and neither are the soundtracks, but the gameplay is easy to follow and fun.
