A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
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.
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.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
