The Game of Life Review: CLick The Wheel And Spin It
The Game of Life is a video adaptation of a classic board game. The original one was released in far 1960s and became a favorite one really quick. Read this The Game of Life review to see if the modern sub is better than the original one.
The Game of Life Gameplay: 4/5
If you have ever played The Game of Life original board version, there’s nothing new for you. Everything works according to the same old rules. The game of Life is a desktop adventure that was successfully brought to your laptops and PC. Only you can decide your own destiny: spend time on education, marry or remain the eternal bachelor, take a chance and put your savings at stake. Do not forget the main purpose - it is better to finish with a thick wallet.
In the beginning, you either choose the route to start your career or go to school. Along of either choice, you eventually hit the mission to get married. The actual gameplay of The Game of Life is fairly straightforward. In fact, it's nearly nonexistent, but it’s what you should expect from a board classic game. Besides the other board game adaptations involving movement along a set path, this one requires nothing more difficult than clicking a picture that simulates the spinning of the famous plastic wheel. Once the dial's whirled, a player moves along the track the specified number of spaces and acts out the situation listed. These can include things like ‘Spend $100,000’, ‘Find a buried treasure’, etc. This stuff also comes with cartoons, animations, and voice-overs. Some missions involve playing short minigames like picking squares to get money rewards, and here’s where the gameplay gets most complicated it can.
The Game of Life Graphics: 5/5
Life game graphics look lovely. Its visual design will please you with its juicy colors palette and plain details. When it comes to animations, there’s nothing to complain about. The Game of Life runs fluidly on either big and small screens.
The Game of Life Sounds: 5/5
Unlike its previous video versions, The Game of Life PC has light background music, that can both calm and irritate you. But, in fact, this sound is quite soft, and you can barely hear it, so it’s not necessary to mute it at all.
To play the game you’ll need nothing more than a computer mouse or a touchpad on your laptop. To spin the wheel, you just have to click it, and this mechanism works through the whole gameplay. Sounds boring? Maybe, but what would you expect from a digitally-rendered classic board game?
Replay Value: 4/5
The Game of Life PC allows you to gather up to 6 players around one computer. Well, okay, I can imagine 6 players using one smartphone or one tablet, but one computer? At least, it’s not comfortable. So, I think you’ll rather play with a friend or two, but when it comes to the party or family gatherings, you will take the classic one or a more portable digital version.
There’s nothing wrong with board games being digitalized and brought to the big screens. The Game of Life can be a cool entertainment activity on parties, but again, in a smaller size. Though, The Game of Life PC made a great conversion from board desktops to digital desktops. It looks nice and works properly.
There are lots of both positive and negative feedbacks about this game on the Internet and I can relate to both sides. On the one hand, it is a cool digitalized version of the classic board game, but on the other, why do we need a digital, when we have an original one? Anyway, I still recommend you to try The Game of Life PC by yourself and decide if the game worth the candles!.
Pros : Light and easy gameplay;
Cons : Not suitable for more than 2 people playing at the same time;
