Game review: Carrie the Caregiver 2

I haven't played a lot of games lately. For the most part, there hasn't been anything I've found interesting. Then I decided to give Carrie the Caregiver 2: Preschool a try. I played the first Carrie the Caregiver game a long time ago. It was OK but nothing spectacular. I was hoping the second would change that. Our nursing school graduate, Carrie, has decided to try teaching preschool. It is your duty to remind the kids what they are supposed to do (paint a picture), give them supplies to use, wipe any runny noses, hang their artwork on the wall and clean up their supplies. Things can get a little hectic when the kids start getting demanding.

I didn't like this game nearly as much as the first one. While this is supposed to be a preschool setting, Carrie ends up doing everything except the actual painting for the kids. By the time the kids reach this age, they are old enough to get their own paintbrushes and clean up their own messes. However, Carrie is still doing these tasks. It would be nice if the game treated the kids more like real kids. Instead of having Carrie be a servant to the kids, change the game a little so you have to click on the kids for them to get some of their own things. There would still be plenty of things for Carrie to do: hanging the kids' pictures on the wall, helping the kids that are a little slower than others, getting the paint ready for the kids, among other things. I definitely think that would have made the game a lot better.
