Faithful? Yes. But honestly, I might as well play nothing. The kids get NOTHING out of this. It uses words that any child under 5th grade would have great difficulty following, often like they didn't even try to address children. The sentences are for adults, meanwhile the content is so watered down and uninteresting that anyone capable of understanding it will be bored. I know many of these stories well, actually from Story of the World -- and they're missing some of the most important / interesting things about it! I actually MUCH prefer Story of the World's engaging version of Saint Joan of Arc! Shouldn't the hagiographies be your wheelhouse, Civilization?
I get that we want to support a good, faithful, Catholic alternative to Story of the World. But they just whiffed with this one. I regret the money I spent on it. I wanted it to be so much better, and it simply failed at most of its objectives. It's not addressing children and it's not teaching history. It's just a rushed exercise in making a product.
