Graphically enhanced, fiddlier than most CS titles; fun though
In this installment, the resourceful Carmen finds herself running away from the player and hiding in Europe. So, yeah, you guessed it, it's that time of the year again when geography through puzzles is the name of the game. Granted, compared to Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? this title is less toiled over, in terms of the puzzles and controls, so you'll need a bit more patience with it. But after you settle in, you'll be surprised to find a well produced, fun to play, if a bit iffy game in certain portions. So, yeah, give it a go, especially if you liked other games in the series. For those that are used, say, to the tablet edutainment games out there, well, you'll find that Where in Europe is Carmen Sandiego? is a bit harder to sink into, but it sure has a lot more to offer in terms of general knowledge, trivia that might prove useful at times (granted, if you are ever caught without your smart phone!) and logic building ideas. Plus, it makes kids more resilient to less well produced interactive products, if ever there is any value in that!
