Strong Points: The graphics in this program are very good, the movies scenes will hold a students interest well. The background on the play and the times in which it was written help to give the player some more insight in to the play they are reading. The anylsis of the scence could also help in the classroom giving the students some base for discusion.
Weak Points: The essays are on a level a little too high for the age group which this program would be benifiting. The "Macbeth Karaoke" only offers the player a choice of 3 scenes they can play out, a few more or even the whole play would be more appealing.
