Merriam Webster Spell-Jam




Merriam Webster Spell-Jam 


Family Friendly Gaming was given a copy of Merriam Webster Spell-Jam on the PC from a friend. This spelling bee kind of a video game is neat in some ways. In other ways Merriam Webster Spell-Jam made me cringe. First off Merriam Webster Spell-Jam looks like a game from last century. It was actually released in 2007. The animations are light, and the voice acting is horrendous.

Know how so many have said our editor in chief should be the voice of a variety of franchises? He could have done a thousand times better than the voice actor sound byte clips in Merriam Webster Spell-Jam. To make matters we only have so much time to type or click the word we hear. I had to repeat the word in Merriam Webster Spell-Jam because some other sound drowned out the game. Even worse I did not understand what they were saying.

Words can be used in sentences and we can get the definition of them. Which can be helpful in certain cases. The computer controlled opponents in Merriam Webster Spell-Jam are insanely good. At times they got easy words like crew, and I got a word like administrative. I did not have trouble spelling administrative. It is just the point of the difficulty seeming very different.

Merriam Webster Spell-Jam contains a game show, competition, and practice. There are also a limited number of select-able characters in Merriam Webster Spell-Jam. There are three difficulty settings in Merriam Webster Spell-Jam. Deaf gamers will not be able to play Merriam Webster Spell-Jam on the Personal Computer since they can not hear what the words are.

I enjoyed Merriam Webster Spell-Jam. I wish there was a setting below ten in terms of rounds. Why? We have to spell ten words per round. That means one hundred words for one game. That is on the high side in my opinion. Merriam Webster Spell-Jam was also connected to Best Buy. There were numerous Best Buy ads in Merriam Webster Spell-Jam.
