UNO Xbox Live Review

I’m going to try and keep this short because there’s really not much to explain, it’s Uno. The truth is that this game is very addictive and is very difficult not to recommend at such a low price. Online multiplayer is phenomenal. A definite buy for casual game fans.

Gameplay: 8.5/10
Pros: It’s Uno, so it’s a proven formula for a game already, but the implementation and ease of playing makes the whole experience really great. The game is fun and addictive to play, which is perfect for Xbox Live Arcade.
Cons: It’s just a card game that we’ve all played before and that takes away from the newness or uniqueness of the experience.

Graphics: 6/10
Pros: Not really important in a card game, and as you can imagine there are 4 different colored cards and a sort of virtual tabletop. You can actually use your Xbox Vision camera if you wish and different decks change the graphics.
Cons: Despite the great presentation and use of the Uno license, the graphics are just cards and pretty menus.

Music/Sound: 10/10
Pros: I really want to play Uno games with the sound and music that this game uses. It just fits so well. The music relaxes me and all the little card sounds and Uno chimes work really well…the music/sounds add to the experience without being annoying, over the top, or repetitive…Truly remarkable.
Cons: ?

Lasting Appeal: 9.5/10
Pros: The games online system is really great and sets up and finds opponents for you very quickly. It’s sort of a simple matchmaking feature. The game is very appealing to the casual audience. Your girlfriends will take over your Xbox playing this game. Very easy to play online and you can even customize and adjust the rules.
Cons: The online ranking system should offer you the option of playing some of the more popular alternate rules. I’m a much bigger fan of not getting points and keeping your score low than you only get points if you win a particular game or hand. It requires more consistent play, but you only have the option of playing this mode unranked.

Average: 85.00%
Tilt: +/- 0.00%

Because of the simplicity of the game I don’t feel I should tilt it up any further even though the game is a ton of fun and costs about as much as a deck of Uno cards (except on Xbox you don’t have to shuffle or sort your cards). It’s a great little addictive game. Uno is definitely worth the download time and a purchase.

Verdict: 85%
