5.0 out of 5 starsAnother ClassicJan 14 2008
By Christine von Braun - Published on Amazon.com
This is yet another classic by the Carmen Sandiego line. This was the best of them all, and your kids will not stop playing it! It is more educational that I first expected, and has everything from grammar to spelling. A good buy for your money. Sorry, a great buy for your money!

4.0 out of 5 starsFun Learning, Aging GraphicsApril 24 2009

Carmen Sandiego Word Detective is a fun game for my 1st Grader. It has a fun 'techy' interface that is appealing while still having fun graphics and an adventuresome plot.
It did not install on my Windows Vista machine, but unlike another reviewer, it installed just fine on my Windows XP home machine.
Fun for the kids, fun for the adults to engage them in reading.
