A terrible game and worse even as learning material

Summary: If you're like me and just want to learn how to speak Chinese than DO NOT GET THIS! You are basically forced to learn how to write and read it as well, even if you have no interest at all for it. Why? Because this thing won't let you go on without beating the level and to do that you have to pass the reading and writing sections for it. This game has a horrible teaching style. What it does is show you a character. Now you have to press the correct English world for it.
Summary: This game is so horrible that I can't believe it!! It's a shame that you couldn't do 0 stars for the reviews because that's what I would give it. First of all, it's totally uncreative because the lessons are basically the same in open lessons. Second of all, they got very lazy at the end because only if you do 100 or so lessons you'll increase your rank. Third of all, the games are so boring I could fall asleep playing one.
Summary: I have been studying Chinese for five years and am constantly looking for tools to help me with my studies. Based on the screen shots, I thought that this product would be perfect, however, as I started working through the lessons, I found that, in at least one instance, the tones were wrong, and the character writing games often had incorrect stroke orders and in some cases even the number of strokes was wrong!
