Review the new credit interactive game

Connie Prater

The Advertising Council and the U.S. Department of Treasury recently launched a new interactive game to help teach young adults (18 to 24 years old) how to avoid some of the pitfalls of using credit cards. asked a group of young adults to review the game, which is part of a public service advertising campaign called Control your credit.

The reviewers evaluated the game by looking at usability, graphics and audio presentation, educational value, content and overall appeal to the target 18- to 24-year-old audience.

Play the game, then come back here to post your comments.
