Summary: First review is correct! Game does not recognize the numbers when you write them in. My daughter was writing the correct answers to math problems and this game was telling her she was "incorrect"! The whole purpose of this game is for kids to learn math while they play. This will only confuse them!
Summary: I like this game, although I wish there were more to it. The total amount of different items to play is limited, but I think it is meant for you to get better and better at them instead of having too many things to do.
Summary: The concept of this video game is great. It keeps my kid's attention, and teaches the basics of math memorization. Beyond this, there is one major flaw that we cannot get past...you have to WRITE the answer. I played this as an adult to see why my kids were frustrated, and even with nice handwriting, I could not get it to read my number 5. For kids that are already struggling with writing numbers, that is a major game flaw that cannot be overlooked.
Summary: I swear the creaters of this game just wanted to get this game out as quickly as possible. The games don't change, the games may start out a little bit easier but then like another poster said they get nearly impossible. I'm VERY disappointed! Will definitly see if I can get my money back. The other thing I don't like is that the game has very few games it doesn't even have the games shown on the front.
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 year old last Christmas and it was one of his favorite games. We worked together and had a great time as he answered the questions. We need more games like this for our kids.
Summary: I bought this game based on the pictures on the back cover and the description. It is supposed to have an "adjustable difficulty for ages 5-11." I set this for my 5 year old and the games were way too hard. I am 34 and I had a little trouble with one game. You were supposed to complete the word and were given p-----l and were given about twelve letters to guess.
Summary: Just bought this for my 7 year old. NO matter whether you set the age on 3 or 30 you still have to do multiplication tables I don't know many 5-7 year olds who know their multiplication tables. Now granted if he keeps guessing he can get it but where is the learning in that. And then the game where you are suppose to "draw" the picture isn't actually drawing at all it is plotting points, boring.
Summary: Bought this for a 7 year old. regardless of what age you put in whether 11, 7 or even 3 the only math I've seen so far is multiplication. Even though the game is designed to show you what you got right and remove what is wrong for most 5,6,and7 year olds it is just a guessing game. Some of the other challenges are also just guessing which letters belong in words.
Summary: I had some high hopes for this game, graduating my kids from their leapsters to ds and losing the educational value of the games I was looking for something along these lines. I read the back of the game, adjustable difficulty level for ages 5-11. I had also bought the Junior classic games at the same time which is age rated for 4-9. I have a 4-year old and a gifted 7-year old.
