Great game for all ages! - I am in my mid twenties and I find this game to be educational in a cool way that is not too juvenile but it is also easy enough for younger kids. Being from the U.S. I find it embarrasing that I cannot answer most of these BASIC geography questions such as capitals, mountain ranges, etc. It is a GREAT game for anyone who likes to learn and play little games at the same time.

Just as terrific as on the iPad! - My family loves this app on our iPads and are excited to now be able to buy it on our iMac. Great app for learning United State geography.
Grandkids love Geography Drive USA - Our Grandkids love Geography Drive USA and we enjoy watching them learn facts about the States as they play.
Geography Drive USA - This game can become addictive. Great learning tool. Ran into problems though trying to fill my fuel tank. Either a question did not appear in the box when I hit the repeat icon or the previous question was displayed for a different map. Hope this problem is addressed soon.
