This game is truly one of my favorites. It is really good for learning and all 3 of my girls play it ( although its kind of weird when one shouts " Warren Harding just killed 3 aliens!") Now even my five year old knows about our presidents! Thank you Presidents VS Aliens!

Is It Any Good?

PRESIDENTS VS. ALIENS is just plain educational fun. The game provides a database of facts, so you can study up before you play. You can also just learn as you go. The alien head layouts keep changing and you can earn power-ups by answering three questions in a row correctly. You can't help but learn something in the process. There's something strangely satisfying about flinging these staid presidential portraits across the screen at colorful alien heads. This is a wacky but fun way to learn about U.S. history.
