My Take
The game itself is great and the kids love it, but I can't believe how hard it was to get it installed for everyone in the class! Regardless of computer (Mac or PC), we had so many glitches and errors that in every class there were about 5 kids who just couldn't get it to work at all. It was very disappointing for those students, as they just had to watch their friends play. As a result, I can't rely on using the game for homework or assignments.
