Mission Possible World Geography is a geography quiz, thinly cloaked in the guise of an adventure game. In the program, the user must answer randomly selected geography questions -- sorted by continent -- to help a secret agent progress on a mission to save the world from global warming.
Quiz questions are primarily multiple choice, .e.g. "Which city is the capitol of Canada?", with a sprinkling of location identification, spatial relationship, and scrambled letter problems.
Mission Possible World Geography provides a reasonable medium for practice. More interesting than reviewing a text book, studying flash cards, or re-reading classroom notes, it offers users interactivity and some visual effects.
The program identifies areas that need more study, and tracks high scores. Topics covered include: Countries, Capitals, States/Provinces, Cities, Bodies of Water, Deserts, Mountains, and Famous Sites.
Mission Possible World Geography is reasonably captivating for students who know their geography facts. Unfortunately, the secret agent storyline is quite weak, and in reality, just a gimmick to provide cover for a series of quiz questions.
Mission Possible World Geography was simple to install on our test machines. Program use and navigation was entirely intuitive,
A good review program covering basic world geography facts. This program is best-suited for junior high students.
