This game is a lot more story-heavy than the other JumpStart titles. The player has to visit each location and play each game in order because of story progression. Other JumpStart titles gave the player control of the direction or at least randomized the order. There's no side-tracking in this one.
That said, the story is pretty great. Jo Hammett single-handedly stops an evil scientist who plans to destroy the city one building at a time. It's short enough that it can be finished in an afternoon if you know what you're doing. If you're not in a hurry, you can provoke the non-productive options in the dialogue trees for the jokes.
Unlike the glorified multiple choice gameplay of JumpStart 6th Grade, many of the puzzles in JumpStart 5th Grade require reading for information and open-ended number manipulation, so you may have to slow down and plan ahead. This can be frustrating to a first-timer without a lot of patience, but all the answers you need can be found inside the game if you know where to look.
