Math, reading, and action in one colorful package.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this educational game makes its lessons not only fun, but enticing, by layering them into action-based, cartoon-inspired gameplay. Not all of the mini-games are purely curriculum-based -- some are more reminiscent of what you'd find in a mainstream, just-for-fun video game; but the inclusion of those un-school-like levels only serves to keep kids interested in the game as a whole. The educational games are geared at 5- to 9-year-olds.

  • Excerpt: Don't take my word for it! I have a lot of trouble recommending an educational game as flawed as Jump Start: Escape From Adventure Island . Luckily for the good people at Knowledge Adventure, I don't have to. In order to properly assess just how close this game comes to hitting the mark, I enlisted the assistance of a member of its target demographic - an adorable nine-year-old girl named Tommy.
  • Pros: A lot of learning material, Tommy totally loved it, Bug-ridden, Repetitive, Confusing menus
