Use Your Words reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Review of Use Your Words Use Your Words is a Party Game in which you try to make your Friends laugh with your own Words. Thus, the Game itself hardly offers Humor, although even the Name of the Developer "Smiling Buddha Games" is amusing, instead the Player himself becomes a Humor valve. You can play Use Your Words with arguably the most accessible Controller in the World: The Mobile Phone. According to Estimates, about 2.6 Billion People own a Smartphone! Anyway, the Game is quite a lot of Fun with his Friends. Sometimes you laugh away your Posterior and sometimes embarrassing Silence dominates the Room. Can it all happen. However, what is far too common Are longer waiting Times. The Pace of the Game is sometimes quite sluggish and you realise that you often wait until it finally continues. This is not due to loading Times. There are hardly any of them in the Game, but for example, the Tutorial Is always displayed again, the Film clips are always played twice, or the Wait for other Players to Finish Typing. In the Total per Game Run, you probably don't wait very long, but noticeable Are these short waiting Times already. Let's Just Get to the Pro-contra list for the fast under us: Pro: + Different Mini-games, the approximate order of which always changes per Game run + The Soundtrack is really amusing! + Family Mode is quite unique and interesting. In that Mode, more ambiguous Images and Film Clips are not shown, so Children can also take part in The Action. + The Choice Of speaker is phenomenal! Always amusing how a single Voice can be funny. Contra:-You are almost forced to answer in English, because it is so harder to recognize the House answer. The House answer is always in English and if everyone wrote their Answer in German and someone would then select the House answer, you would be able to identify them immediately and then you just don't have to take that answer to get a Point Wound to Suffer. In general, the Game has unfortunately not been translated. Prontra: +-Tutorials keep popping up. They are quick to skip, but still disturb. +-Unfortunately, There is no Way to play the Game alone. Is actually understandable, because the Game has not been designed for it, but I think that's a shame. If you have a fun Party game that is easy to understand and can be played quickly and easily with your Mobile phone, you can strike here unthinking. However, I think the Price of £14.99t is significantly too expensive! You should know for yourself if you are willing to pay this Sum, but I would wait for a Sale. I thank you for Reading and wish you a lot of Fun playing! ;-) https://store.steampowered.com/app/521350/Use_Your_Words/
