What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is not sophisticated software but it does provide an interesting way to drill geography facts on the computer. The spy theme is only loosely associated to the geography drill -- kids are not allowed to participate in the storyline since they affect it only by answering questions.

What's it about?

MISSION POSSIBLE WORLD GEOGRAPHY uses a spy-mission theme to make the learning of geography facts more palatable. Kids infiltrate a research facility to rescue important data about global warming. Their mission's success is directly correlated to how well they can answer a series of geography questions. If they answer correctly, they watch a video of their spy character moving forward in the mission.

The questions take many formats, including simple multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, unscrambling words, and identifying places on a map. Kids can practice learning the facts in a tutorial mode before taking on the less-forgiving mission mode.

Is it any good?

Mission Possible is not sophisticated software. Its graphics are somewhat crude by today's standards, and it has slow transitions between scenes. It won't keep track of what you don't know in order to quiz you later -- its questions are simply random. It won't even save your mission if you leave in the middle.

But it will provide a more interactive way of drilling geography facts than simply studying maps or running through a series of flash cards.
