It would appear that Activisionâ€™s Spanish for Everyone really isnâ€™t a game for everyone, featuring a highly dubious plot containing hidden sexual overtones. Furthermore, the “exceedingly racial stereotypes” have prompted a few complaints, causing copies to be returned to US stores.
It just so happens that his Aunt is called Gina Vasquez – an anagram of Vagina Squez – a lady who can â€œteach him many thingsâ€. Once in Mexico, Shaun roams the dangerous streets alone before meeting up with an â€œexporterâ€ who eventually sends him on a trip with a â€œpackageâ€. A cut-scene then warns of a â€œnew adventureâ€ in the back of a truck. Then thereâ€™s a similarly suspicious scene with a talking bull, thatâ€™s currently proving popular on You Tube.
According to those who’ve played it, the actual â€˜learningâ€™ aspect is worthless. The four mini-games on offer are apparently impossible to play if you donâ€™t know the basics of Spanish, while conjugating verbs and the difference between masculine and feminine nouns are totally ignored.
Sounds like the developers thought theyâ€™d have a laugh with this one…
