WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SANDIEGO?Reviewed By: Carole Stewart McDonnell
VOLUNTEER GUEST REVIEWER
Genre: Instructional / Adventure
This is a fun way of learning world geography. Game-players hear little informative and musical tidbits as they pursue Carmen but since they're playing detective they don't realize all the learning that is taking place. When ordered from the developers, the game comes with a World almanac. While playing this game, some children might have one hand on the computer mouse while the other hand peruses the almanac.Other game-players might just shanghai a poor parent with a question about China. So, if a parent doesn't want to look like a turkey, he or she had better have a quick answer for "Where is the city of Istanbul located?"
There is also a version for younger kids called "Where in the world is Carmen San Diego, JR?" And a version that deals with American geography and culture called "Where in America is Carmen San Diego?" There is also an historical version called "Where in Time is Carmen San Diego?" Carmen sure gets around.
Year of Release—1992
