Review:
Kudos to the Knowledge Adventure folks for their Math Blaster Cross Terrain Challenge. This latest addition to the successful Math Blaster series is one tough, enjoyable ride. This is no re-hash of previous versions of the Math Blaster software. The programmers did not simply increase the level of difficulty in the math concepts covered and repackage an old idea as something new. This CD is totally different from previous versions. The sound track and characters are hip, the action is fast paced and exciting, and there are beat-the-clock games to play and bonus points to win. Cross Terrain Challenge is a very good blend of "need to practice" with "want to play."

This is a solid program. The math content is in line with national standards and the presentation is appropriate for the ages 9-12 rating. Cross Terrain Challenge is well worth its $20 asking price.
