Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?

By: Broderbund Software
Published By: Parker Bros Released: 1988

So I'll set aside my prejudices about this game, like when I was a camp councilor in the late 80's, and my kids could totally crush me at this game on the Apple II. The game is more or less the same, but they tried to add some effects to make it play on a console, and without a keyboard. Frankly I don't think it works.

On the other hand, the educational content is still there. Off the top of my head I can't think of any other SMS games that can claim any educational value whatsoever. I suppose if you want to educate your kids with classic Sega technology, I would just stick with the excellent Pico.
