Different Carmen Sandiego Game

  • Dec 2, 2007

Pros: Good tutorial

Cons: Long tutorial and too many different control situations

The Bottom Line: Okay if you are into adventure games, but not for those looking for a classic Carmen Sandiego game

If you have played other Carmen Sandiego games such as the Where in the World ones on the computer, do not expect this to be the same. It is a very different style of game. I personally love the detective style of the ones for the computer, but this Gamecube game is more of an adventure style game. You still appear to kind of be a detective, but you play along the levels as chosen and do adventure style stuff like other level games. The game style actually reminds me a lot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for Gamecube. I honestly did not play very much of the game because it frustrated me. There were too many different control and things you had to learn to do just in the first level. I will say thought that I do like how the tutorial first level was done in a way that you actually were playing through a level as you learned the different things, but it was just too long of a tutorial being it took me at least 45 minutes to figure it all out and complete it. The graphics at least are decent and I think people more into adventure style games would enjoy it more. I was just more looking for the classic Carmen Sandiego game and did not realize that this is not what this game is.
