You start out as a rookie detective whose job is to track down a crop of thieves stealing the world's most precious treasures. After each assignment briefing, you'll be given a deadline to capture the thief that stole the artifact using clues dealing with your knowledge of geography.
Remake of the original Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?. Features enhanced VGA graphics, sound effects, and joystick support.
This is a remake of one of the first games made by Brodenburd software dating all the way back to somewhere in 1985. The idea itself is very original and it puts you in position of an Interpol detective.
Your task is to hunt down criminals. During your investigation, you get to fly around the world, travel to different cities and investigate many places in them. You get different kinds of clues, based on which, you can issue an arrest warrant and track down the criminal you're after. The game progresses in such a way that you never get the same case twice! The potential is limitless.
As for the graphics, there are plenty of very nice pictures representing different towns and the introduction is just satisfactory. The only thing that could have been done better are the sounds which tend to repeat themselves frequently and are pretty annoying. Of course, we have to take into consideration the fact that making PC speaker sounds manually is both time consuming and difficult.
Finally, the navigation through the game is simple and straightforward so there shouldn't be any problems with that. All in all, this classic is a must.
Part of the Carmen Sandiego Series
You play the role of a detective, whose aim is to solve the crimes that Carmen's gang commits. The job is not easy, it requires a bit of brain power - chasing the criminals all over the world, to different countries taking you to the airport, library, dock, markets, etc. As you solve more and more cases you earn a higher rank by getting a question right to be worthy of the promotion. You don't actually come up against Carmen Sandiego till the very last case but its all worth the wait.
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego was one of my favorite games as a child. I loved the history and general knowledge questions and, of course, having to find the criminals. The ranking system was fair and the robot cop was hysterical. My favorite part was trying to catch the criminals without the case book telling you everything about them. I also enjoyed the random-ness of the witnesses, their accents and traditional garb. The music was accurate as you travelled the country and I even learned a little bit about world culture. Everything in the game was just great fun. The pictures of the places were stunningly beautiful and vivid. The creators obviously put a lot of thought into who all the characters were because they were all very well developed. Right down to the small village merchants. I used to watch Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego religiously when it was a TV show and I was so excited on the day when I walked into Ames (Yes, there were stores before Wal-Mart.) one day and there was this great game just sitting on the shelf waiting for me to take it home with me. At least weekly, I would pretend I was deathly ill so I could stay home from school and play Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego all day long without interruption.
In the game, you are a detective trying diligently to find Carmen Sandiego, the world's most wanted criminal ever. You are also sniffing along the trail of 10 or so of her closest criminal cronies, as they cross the world in a matter of a few hours. The travel agent alone is worth the trips. You're given clues, witnesses and an unlimited expense fund to track these dirt bags from Southern California to the Continental divide. The only catch is that you have to catch them in a certain amount of time, so you had better hope that your pilot has not been drinking. When you finally have enough evidence to arrest a suspect, you have to obtain a warrant, or you don't win the cat style, boot throwing, scratch fest that precedes a "court hearing" after you have a suspect in your custody.
These people steal everything that they can find of value, up to, including, but not limited to the Hope Diamond, the Great Wall of China, and even the Ambassador of Denmark himself! They are also very cunning and tend to break right out of jail if left alone for even a bite of a donut. So keep your eyes peeled!
Good luck in becoming the greatest detective of all time. This game is very addicting and will definitely have you asking, "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?"
