This was a pretty good read, though I'm part of its target audience so some of the jokes that you were making weren't as hilarious to me as they might have been to someone who laughs at the idea of learning things from video games. I spent tons of hours on the Carmen Sandiego games when I was in elementary school (Apple IIe versions, thank you much) and they did have the effect of helping me to learn my capitals and such a little better. Clearly, the games weren't intended for people who already know the stuff, but for those who don't and should know it. And for that, they were quite enjoyable.

I've read this review and saw it leaving on a plane with a green and white flag.

I remember playing this game in grammar school on the school computers during lunch. Good times.

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

Whoever added this game to the database (I'm not saying it's EmP) has a laughable understanding of the English language.

I'm not sure what you're getting at, Suskie. It was likely me that added the title, and I see no issues with it whatsoever.

In titles, verbs get capitalized. "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" is correct. (And I'm not being serious, by the way. It's just one my pet peeves.)

Me and my pet peeves.

This isn't insane and overlflowing praise! It's grammatic bickering!

I am far from pleased at this turnout.


For us. For them. For you.
