Most helpful positive review
This handheld game has been both entertaining and fun for my children. I got this game because I know that my children are fans of the show. And much like the show, this game found a way to hold their attention and teach them at the same time. While this handheld game is different than most handhelds due to its lack of graphics, it uses creative thinking to keep kids interested in continuing play. The construction is sturdy, as it has survived a few drops and still works. One negative thing about the game is that the child does need to have some knowledge of world geography before playing the game. If not then this will definitely be too difficult for them. It does help them to learn new things. But it can get frustrating if the child doesn't know and isn't able to catch their target. Overall, I would recommend this game but not for younger kids.

Just like the Original!

I used to play Carmen Sandiego as a kid all the time and loved how it used country trivia and detective work together. When we recently played the Carmen San Diego Board Game (not this game), I was a little disappointed because it barely captured the computer game I remembered from my childhood.

BUT this! If memory serves right, is SUPER CLOSE to the original computer game. Old graphics and all. Lol. The buttons even remind me of an old computer we had. Kids today probably won't even realize the on/off button resembles a floppy disk. A little tongue in cheek for those who remember the DOS style computers.

To that end though, I played this with my 6 year old daughter. The box recommends 8 and up which is probably pretty accurate since you do need to know country trivia. If your child has an iPad though they can easily look up country flag colors or languages.

My daughter surprisingly loved it. I think the original graphics were almost novel.

And it was more nostalgic for me.

Overall though, my daughter learned some geography, country facts, and how to track clues.

I was really happy with this game. Would definitely recommend to anyone who played it as a kid.

If you did not play Carmen Sandiego as a kid, there might be a little bit of a learning curve.

It also might seem way too simple with poor graphics if you never played it.

Having played it as a kid, I absolutely loved it.

Great remake! Would definitely recommend.

Great Classic Game!

The Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego game is a great handheld game that is an amazing spin off of the original 1980s game. This brings back all the nostalgia from 80s computer gaming. I remember playing the original game on a Commodore 64 with an 8 inch floppy disk. The screen has the same graphics from the 80s and the buttons are high quality. The game turns on and off by pushing the red floppy disk button. The game requires 3 AA batteries and they are included with the game. The game is as challenging as I remember from my childhood and there are game instructions included so you can read up on how to play. This is a fun and educational game for all ages that teaches you easy and difficult geography while you play. Don't forget to type in the description of the suspect as you play so you get the warrant for their arrest. I kept wondering why I could never catch the thief and reread the instructions to figure it out. Overall this is a great game that is also educational. It is a great recreation of the original and provides hours of fun!

A very nice game for kids!!

My kids love this game!! Especially my 11 years old. It has been a while since I saw him excited about non electronic game.

He loves learning about countries and cities, he kept searching some info to be able to catch the suspects. And sharing all this info with his younger brother and every one in the family.

I believe this kind of games kids need these days to spend their time playing while learning new things.

Carmen Sandiego handheld game

This little handheld game system is perfect for car rides or for letting the young ones just sit on the couch with a game to play. It brings back memories for me! The display is very bright and the buttons are large and easy to hit. This is going to make a great Christmas present for a particular special young man. I like the two tone grey color of the handheld game. I also like the design of the way the game is laid out. I think any little gamer will be very thankful to get this.

Entertaining and Educational

Fun game

Where in the world is Carmen sandiego computer game is fun, you become the newest member of the Acme detective agency and tracking down Carmen sandiego internationally, you explore various cities for clues, get your mission after you log in.

It is a nice throwback game, simple and fun!

Not so lovely handheld game.

I use to love watching the tv show Carmen Sandiego, so I just knew the game would be a hit. It wasn't for me at all. It was hard trying to figure out where to go to find clues, like what city/place to go to find the clues. It was hard trying to go from place to place and you only have a certain amount of days and the information that was given to you was not very much help at all. The tv show is really goo Geography help but the game was just too hard for me to figure out how to maneuver through it. My kids ages 10 and 12 also tried to no avail. I will say this is a no for me on this product.

Fun but tiny font to read

My kids love the tv show Carmen Sandiego and this is definitely a cute, vintage style handheld video game that goes along with that. However the sound is loud, the type is extremely tiny and the game, while informational, is a bit simplistic. So I think my kids have fun with it but I doubt that it will impress kids who are used to high graphic, exciting, action-packed video games. It is nice that the sound can be turned off completely though.

Oldie but a classic

I was so excited when I saw this game pop up. This game is a classic and I couldn't wait to get this for my 9 year old. My daughter loves it so far. I am a police officer and she has always been excited when it comes to crime solving. The game console is small and easy to take around with you every where you go. The only downfall is as far as graphics the are what I would consider a little sub par considering what is available to kids these days. All and all a fun, challenging game for your child!

Super Old School

Brings back memories of playing this in grade school. It is pretty true to the original format. I found it fun to play around on, my 12 year old poked around on it a bit, but is use to handheld games with better graphics so it didn't hold his interest long. If old school Carmen Sandiego is what you're looking for then this it, if not, it's probably not.
