This is not at all what I expected. I thought that my Kids would learn a little geography and history. Instead all they learned was a lesson of frustration. This game is geared towards kids and what the developers failed to realize is that kids do not know the concept of how an anaolg stick works if you push lightly you sneak to your enemy and if you push down you run fast. Kids always push them down hard. All the enemies that you encounter in this game require that you hit them in the back if you are spotted you start over again at the beginning. My son kept calling me into the romm to get him on to the next point of the game. When I played I found little challenge to it, however an unclear explination of where to go next. After running through the forst level for 1hour and 45 minutes, and checking the map to find out that I hadn't uncovered anything we both gave up. What happened to the Carmen Sandiego games I played in elementary school in the computer lab? I think that a re-realease of Orgeon Trail needs to be done but not like this!
