Game description: Join A.C.M.E. agent-in-training, Cole Gannon, along with Jules Argent and Shadow Hawkins, in an all-new action adventure on the trail of Carmen Sandiego--the world's greatest thief. This case takes Cole around the world: from a museum in New York and the beaches of New Zealand to the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu. While on the case, you'll need to use acrobatics, stealth, martial arts, and most of all, your wit, to stop Carmen from unearthing the drums and making off with the lost treasure.

Game doesn't hang before ingame. Seems to work fine but reports cdvd read errors with all other plugins apart from cdvdpeops. Bugs:

1. Game reports CD read errors with all other CDVD plugins. 2. Some part of screen is cut if you use newer gsdx versions. Note: latest GSdx builds fix screen problem.
