I normally rave about all of our LeapFrog cartridge games and apps. This one, however, doesn't cut it. The trailer for this game looks awesome and we were excited to buy it. Unfortunately, you spend most of the game flying around in the airplane going to various locations, which is very poorly programmed to boot (the controls are very slow and unresponsive for this part). The map quests and mini games have very little if any explanation about what you are doing or why. My son knows what directions are which now, but it doesn't explain why North is North. He thinks that East is to the right no matter what. As far as the "culture and people" aspect of the game, I believe it is laughable. For example, one of the quests is to pick what ingredients normally go on a cheeseburger. In another mini game, you drag a close up photo of maps of Canada, The USA, and Mexico onto a map of those countries. It does not at all remind the child which country is which or say out loud anything about each flag, it simply becomes a process of elimination for the child to guess which flag goes to which. There is no learning or explanation involved. I am disappointed I wasted my money on this game. I have found better free games in the app store for my phone. Super disappointed in LeapFrog for this game.
