    I found this virtual game to be very enlightening. Before playing, I was unaware of the extreme conditions the people of Haiti endured following the devestation of the earthquake. It exemplified the various challenges survivors, journalists, and aid workers had to deal with. It led me to realize just how lucky we are to have a roof over our heads and food on the table to eat everyday.

    Very realistic immersion in the Haiti crisis. This simulation is a great way to educate the public about the crisis. Expensively produced and very well thought out.
