THE GAME OF LIFE - The Official 2016 Edition reviews and comments

How to play the Game: Game actually explains itself pretty much by itself. Easy with the Mouse, click clack! Graphic: Really nicely done, fell in love with the Game! The Game is inspired by the Board Game, you are happy that you recognize these Things again! Story: You write your own Life Story! Multiplayer: Of course, it'S even more Fun with Friends. Either on a PC or over the Internet, just great! Verdict: Is addictive And can almost replace the original Board game. Let's play: https://youtu.be/4p5eE4wCGT4?list=PLWyeFevMkZFHk6cyq5sRlm0EELzWGtZ4V

I am a very big Fan of these classic Games, but unfortunately this Implementation of "Game of Life" disappointed me greatly. All too often there were the Mini-games in which one always emerged Victorious. If you remain inactive, even if the NPC does not win until you act on your own and win the Game. You can't set a Level Of Difficulty either. The Level is intended for Children and not to change. The Ambience in the Game is very well done, unfortunately I personally lacked the Fun of the Game, which is why I give the Game a negative Rating.

Game of the Board game MDR, good the normal parts of the game lasts 40 a hour depending on the odds against the fast parts that last about 15min. A game or you can have fun between buddies despite bots that want to let you win (apparently) If you put them (this is also the case in solo) and no one who play online if you try to search for parts in lines. The translation is approximate at certain times but nothing serious short, I advise you to make parties between buddies (you type full of bars on it) that is online partly personalized or local.

With the old Board Game from the 70s, this Game has little to do. With the right Friends, however, it's still a lot of Fun. For example, there are a Bunch of Event cards that are funny worded and contain silly Tasks that probably no one does anyway. The Board is nicely designed, but the Soundscape is quite monotonous and a bit annoying in the Long run. Unfortunately, you hardly have any Options or Influence on the Game. You can't give the Characters (it's only max 4) the Names of the Players, you can't skip Animations or decide how hard you want to spin the Wheel. In the End, it runs almost on its own and only from time to time you are asked how to decide (whether to buy a House, what job to choose, etc.) With four Players you are through after 60-90min. Entertaining, but as I said, with Friends it can get quite funny. The Friends should be younger und/or silly, though. ;)
