First let me start by saying this is my first review...just kidding
! Actually Tasty Pastry has an amazing ability to write the longest reviews on the smallest of games. With that being said, here is my review:Single Player: 2/10
Really not that difficult. You can tweak the house rules to where you win every time. But, lets say you play a standard game. No home rules. You'll get a lot of draw two's and four's. If you use a draw four when you still have the color, the computer 99.9% will never call your bluff. The game is basically rigged for you to win. The computer also picks the best possible card for you to play. So there is no real thinking in this game. Just press (A) when it is your turn. Boring and tedious. And time consuming achievements.Multiplayer: 4/10
Use to be a lot better. Not too many people play this online anymore. There will be at most 10 active games, and you may spend 10 min. just waiting to get 4 people in a game. Another really big problem like any Xbox card game, is if people start losing, they leave the game. Every time without fail. Haven't been to the end of game yet. If people leave, the online game will no longer go towards the achievement. You can dowload extra decks for a couple bucks, but that isn't to exciting. I gave the game a 4 out of 10 only because it is UNO, who doesn't like UNO!Graphics: 2/10
Unless you download the couple extra decks they have for sale, it's always the same background and cards. No customization what so ever. The only reason I'm giving it a 2, is because it displays your Avatar! Other than that, nothing to impressive.Achievement Difficulty: 2/10
These achievements are not are not hard to achieve in any way. Although there is nothing tough behind them, there is a factor that may prevent you from getting one of them. The "Win Ten-Online games of Uno", may prove to be impossible without a boosting session. As said in the multiplayer section, there is not many games available to play online anymore, and of those, people tend to leave when they start losing. Of the 12 achievements, 11 of them can be earned offline. Price: 5/10
If you purchase this game through the arcade, it is a rip off! It is $5. Or you can go to Gamestop and for $2.99 pick up the Xbox 360 arcade promo disc, that has Luxor 2, Feeding Frenzy, Pac Man Championship Edition, Boom Boom Rockets, and of course UNO on it. Which would you rather do? I'm sure you could also find this disc on Ebay for a $1 for those of you who are not from the U.S.
All in all, this game is pretty lame...no pun intended
. If you want to spend $5 on an arcade game, I suggest Hardwood Spade #1 or Hearts.
