Strong Points: Math detective is interesting to play.  It allows the student to search and find the answers, and if needed, there are clues.
Weak Points:  Not enough visual stimulus.  The graphics were poor and not inticing at all. It can be used as a quiz for schools, but it does not live up to game status.  If this was in a home the child would stop playing it because there aren't enough rewards.  In the school setting the kids could use it for a little time each day to review their math facts, but this probably would not go beyond a third or fourth grade level.
