Game Review

Where in The USA is Carmen Sandiego is the second educational mystery game in the Carmen Sandiego franchise and was developed and published by Broderbund in 1986 for Apple II and DOS.

It was ported to many other platforms and spawned a remake in the years following its release. As the title would suggest, the focus of this sequel was United States geography. What I’ve always like about Carmen Sandiego games is the replayability. The crimes and clues are always different and you learn a little more each time.

You are hot on the trail of the infamous Carmen Sandiego and her sticky-fingered henchmen. They have stolen precious historical artifacts and you must get them back. Just like in the first one you need ask the right questions and follow the clues before the trail turns cold. You must use the information obtained to get a warrant to bring the suspect in. Track down her henchmen and you may just nab Carmen herself! Happy hunting!

GamesNostalgia offers you the enhanced version, released in 1990.
