Reviewed by Gary Leiter on March 3, 2014. I rated this game very low because of the lack of creativity the game designers used as well as being very dull to play. I was not engaged at all in playing this game and the technology in the software seemed very outdated. It was a good game in that students can practice over and over to learn the geography of the United States, but it really wasn't much better than using index cards or a puzzle to put together.

This game will help you learn the states and capitals. It will help you study for a test over the states and capitals for the US. I think this game is very helpful to kids that are in school that are learning the states and capitals. -TannerS22 3/6/14
