Excellent

Even those with exceptional vocabulary will learn

I admit it; I'm a word nerd. At first I was frustrated by the low level of vocabulary in the program--I wanted to be stretched. But after playing for a little while (okay, a long while), the vocabulary and difficulty level of the challenge games rose. Now I'm reviewing my more elevated vocabulary and learning new words. Another plus is if you miss a word, the program reviews the missed word several times in future training programs. It results in mastery.

Best for other vocabulary enthusiasts, people reviewing for the SAT or GRE, and anyone who wants to improve their vocabulary.

Negatives are the difficulty using the controller, the spray paint feature may misread the letter repeatedly, and the multiplayer games don't review the vocabulary.

Worth a rental if not a purchase.

I really liked this game. It might not be a good rental but would make an excellent game to buy. The idea way to use this game is for short periods of time several times a week.

but the clumsy controls make me think this would be a title better suited for the ds.
