It is really like the real game
When I first bought this app was very skeptical like extra skeptical I thought it was gonna be nothing like the real deal nothing but it was a bot like the real game because I have the The real game and it was a lot like the real game and I think I really am going to keep this I’m never going to delete it like if I get too much room I’ll probably delete some other game because this game is really fun and I mean like I was too when I bought it and now I’m27It’s really fine like I said are you got so much room and I mean like so much I deleted like all these other apps but I kept it shaking my hand like you know how you shake your hand not like shake out another person like it was like shaking like it was like so I like didn’t do it because it was too stinking I couldn’t so I ate App next to itAnd I really am making this like just now because I was like maybe later maybe later I might dislike this game I might dislike this game so I was like maybe later maybe later every time that it said it I was like not right now not right now not right now not right now and then I just finally I’m doing the. Now that I’m 27 i’m doing the review and figure it out I’m going to love this game forever never gonna not like this game

Awesome game! But...
It’s a really great app. There are changes, but most of them are neutral or positive changes. The changes to the money for careers are interesting and give a much wider difference between highest and lowest paying jobs. There is no better feeling than pulling brain surgeon and raking in 150k per payday. I also wasn’t expecting being able to play with computers, but it’s nice that you can. Although I do wish that you could online play with friends with separate devices. Maybe you can and I just haven’t noticed. The only thing that I wish was better is customization. There isn’t that many customizable things that affect gameplay. It would be nice if you could alter things like how much money careers are worth, what action cards you could get, house price, and more. I would very much like to be able to choose which quick ending I get as well. I could say more, but this review is getting long. Overall, do I recommend this app? Well I did give 5 stars so that kind of gives it away, but either way, I do. Even as it is, it is a great app and 600 times better than going to Walmart and buying the game for $20 and then needing to set it up and deal with actual cards.

Great game
This is a really and I mean really fun game but the computer people see I don’t don’t know if they are real people but if they aren’t you should be able to play with real people around the whole entire world that would be great but besides that this is a amazing game keep up the great work and I won’t to let you know that you are one of the best games I ever played so keep up the great work and I hope you stay healthy and safe you guys are amazing and one more thing and can you pls try to make the board longer at least try because I feel like the game is pretty short and I would like to do a lot more stuff in the game so bye and thank you for making this game be as fun as possible and this is great you can play offline I believe so if you are in a car with no WiFi you can just play this game with your family stay safe and wear a mask thanks for seeing this wow this feels like a speech or something but thank you for making this game so bye now for real this time

Boring
I really love the Game of Life, so I decided to gamble on it and pay for the game. I didn’t realize there would be so many features you still have to pay for, like customizing the player. It feels really tacky to have to pay for something as silly as a different kind of Vespa. Anyway, I did the default settings and played but found it kind of boring. You can’t see what any of the game board says until you land on them, so most of the game is just spinning and watching your piece move along a board. I guess I should have expected that, since it’s similar to what the game is like in real life, but I thought I would at least be able to see the game board. Years ago, there was a Game of Life computer game which I loved! When you came to a fork in the road, it showed you the two spaces you could have landed on with your roll before you chose, there was customization, the rolls felt more personalized and interactive, and overall it was a more fun game. I guess I was hoping for that but it isn’t, so I’m giving 3 stars because it does give the exact game, but without much of the personal experience.

I’m ADDICTED
Okay, first off… this game is JUST like the in person love action board game! Just digital! I downloaded it about maybe two days ago and I’ve been playing it pretty much almost every day nonstop I’ve also gotten my husband to play with me I’m even if you don’t wanna play with anybody else you can either play with the computer or you can also play online there’s so many options but I honestly love the game because it’s a wholesome it’s just like the board game. It’s fun it’s never gets boring and there’s just so many twists and turns with it that just really makes the game really fun. I’m not too sure why this game wouldn’t get five stars maybe perhaps people were expecting something different like the app the Sims where it’s nothing like the actual computer game, but somehow people like it but no, this game is actually just it’s amazing. I am just have a blast with it.

Life
I just love love love this game. I thought about playing it today. This is really one of my favorite games. One day I went on App Store and saw this game a got it. I am actually really really glad I went on App Store to get this. I play this game on my iPad and glad I got my iPad for Christmas. I really think this is a brilliant game! Who ever made up and thought of this game thank you! I am glad we had games and iPads to play on! I am so thankful and blessed for these kind of stuff! I am really really happy and amazed that someone was smart to make up this game! There is a few things I don’t really get or like but I am still thankful and blessed to have this game and at least a game like this game. I am super glad to play this game and I was so excited for this game! MAN I don’t know how happy I could not say it. Thank you for making this fun fun game!

Great but a few things
I love this game but usually when I play and I get really and I mean REALLY far into the game it usually glitches out also sometimes when I start a game the screen just freezes but the part 2 and the vacation ones are great I do recommend the vacation and game of life two but if you want to download this game and try anyway then that’s fine I really don’t care on anyone else’s decision or opinion well I do care but this is still my opinion so if you like this app then thats perfectly fine with me but still go check out the vacation and game of life two I love them and I really think peoples experiences so go share them but if you don’t want to that’s perfectly fine with me and also this game when it doesn’t glitch or freeze it’s so fun so I hope you have a great time on this app but just so you know if you play and it glitches don’t tell me I didn’t tell you that it’s very glitchy but still I hope you have a great time playing “this game glitches and freezes a lot” said by me also I hope you have a great day :)

Very disappointing
This version replaced an absolutely phenomenal version that iPhone no longer supports… given my love of life, clue, and monopoly I bought this several years ago. I disliked that they reverted back to pegs instead of people, but I’ll live with that, it’s purely preference. But all the stupid mini games make this unplayable. I like to play this as I’m going to bed, I don’t want to have to try to figure out or think quickly for a mini game, even if I did, I don’t wanna play the version of hungry hungry hippos or whatever other version it’s popping up… if I wanted to play those I would get those, but I got life. Again, citing how the old version was infinitely better, life (from board game up) relied on luck of the spin and luck of drawing good cards, not stupid mini games. Those are gimmicks to hide how bad this game is. Life doesn’t need gimmicks, it’s a good game and the gimmicks distract from that. There also is no way to turn off the mini games for a more traditional game. I paid money for this, and I can’t bring myself to play it (although I generally try once or twice a year). Honestly, I still have an old phone and charger (iPhone 3 I think), and I use that to play the original iPhone life because this version is so bad. The game got a two star instead of a one because it’s still Life, and it’s got the good bones… it could be salvaged by removing the mini games. But, if you like mini games, it could be awesome for you.

Great design but online play stinks
If anybody thinks this game is nothing like the actual game of life that is because they haven’t played the new version! The board game they sell in store now is different than when we were kids, and this app is exactly like the new version of the board game. I think it’s cute and funny that each character gets a look depending on the career they chose. Please fix online mode!!! It is so annoying that it’s so easy to get kicked off a game. If you leave the app for even a moment it will kick you off and turn your character into a computer. The games obviously last kind of a while, so it’s so infuriating when you’re deep into a game with your buddies and then you get kicked off because you got a phone call and gets get back in the game. Or you get a text message and muscle memory opens it really quick forgetting that will render you unable to rejoin the game. I urged all my friends to pay $3 on an app that is just frustrating to use! Don’t bother buying if you plan on playing online

This will enhance your game!
Hello, just speaking on behalf of any mobile user. I enjoy the game but it would be even better if you add a few to a several of these changes: 1. Adding more mini games to the map, having the same 3 games (especially when I land and play the same mini game in a row) can be pretty boring and not as challenging 2. Making it easier to reconnect when disconnecting on accident. Instead of having to start a new game every-time. 3. Switching up the map style (how the map is set up) in a different way so it will be more fun to actually want to cross around the map, instead of different themes (which is great too, but there could be more to it). 4. Since people like to disconnect a lot on here (barely when the game even starts) it would be nice for the bots to be more challenging. Like I’m legitimately facing a human like AI and not act stupid on some occasions( ex. Has a great job but trades it in for a crappier one, like what..?). 5. Have the bots be more gender fluid when it comes to picking who they marry (it’s always a boy-girl or girl-boy situation; lets LGBTQIA up in here more) So far, that’s all i can personally think of, Ive been wanting to write this down for awhile, but never got around to it. I paid 20 bucks for this game and it would be cool if you take my ideas into consideration. Thanks for taking the time to read this if you do ❤️ Talisha

Nothing like the original
First off, the game is expensive for what you get to do. You don’t get to Customize your pegs or even the car that you get without having to pay for it. The game is extremely repetitive, I feel as if the game already programs what you’re going to be landing on because I land on the same things almost every single time which can’t be coincidence. The jobs that you get whether it’s career or college are the same every time which is only 4 options. In the original game you have a lot more options. In this game if you have children you automatically get $50k for each child but in the original game you had expenses for child care, college for the kids, etc. Obviously you’re going to choose to have a child each time to cash in at the end. You have a lot of chances to gain money but not a lot of chances to lose it which I find boring. The whole point is that you have as many equal chances to win as you have to lose. The only thing I like are the mini games which I find amusing when you land on them. Overall, really bad game....

It’s good, but unoriginal.
To be completely honest, I love this game, and I don’t really have anything against it. Issues that can cause unhappy players are obvious. The game costs money, you have to buy skins and vehicles, and much more. Aside of these issues, the overall rating would be a 6/10. Why, you may ask? Well, the issues, and the game originally. This app is nothing like the actual board game. You can design vehicles and pegs, players get much more money which just makes it unfair in a way, etc. I dislike how it’s like this because the original board game itself is much better, and once you look at this app, you’ll see how different it is, in some ways it’s improved, but in most ways it’s just worse. Like I said, I have nothing against the game, and I do encourage to download if you’re bored or just for fun, but do be aware on what you’re spending precious money on, and do remember, there are bugs and it’s not like you think it is.

Nothing Like the Original
Overall, the app works great, and it can definitely be fun to play! The computer players are really nice to have access to, as well. The AI never feels rigged, a weakness so many other games of this genre possess. However, do not buy this game if you expect the nostalgia of the Game of Life that you know (which the description claims to evoke). Almost nothing about this game is anything like the board game it’s supposedly based on. There are completely different careers, no life tiles, no share the wealth cards, a completely revamped board layout, a pervasive mechanic known as “action cards” (which apparently give you money at the end?), no requirement to buy a house, etc. Despite the fact that the app bears no resemblance to the board game, this is a review of the app itself. Overall, the app works great. Buy it if you want some mindless fun to last the occasional hour. If you want the real Game of Life as an app, this isn’t what you’re looking for.

Not the Life you’re comfortable with but passing.
The game comes to a rather abrupt end on the free board. You go from collecting babies to the risky/safe path and then suddenly you’re in retirement within two or three spins. Old board games and online versions used to draw this portion out and from my estimate, your life isn’t over that fast! I’m fond of being able to own more than one house or forgoing a house entirely. Otherwise the mini games give the mobile version a nice twist on the game. It’s a little hard to justify a season pass with so much locked up behind a paywall. I need more to convince me the game is worth it. I don’t feel like I got my money’s worth of what I did pay. If the old fashioned game isn’t the length I remember it to be, then what good is that? It makes me unwilling to pay for more. Needs more content for the free version to make me willing and eager for more. Simply passing and barely so. A mediocre incarnation of your favorite game.

Super fun!
I read a review entitled “Nothing is good anymore” and had the heartiest laugh . . . Complaints like “players get paid too much,” “the money system is different,” “I can’t choose the vehicle I drive around in” and to sum it up, “I never thought something like this would happen to mobile gaming.” Seriously?!? Ha ha ha!! Oh, first-world problems. 😂😂 Why is it a bad thing that people get paid more? EVERYONE is getting paid more. Who cares if the money system is different, it’s fun and it works, and does it truly matter which vehicle you drive around in?!? That’s the LEAST of my concerns. Wow. ANYWAY, MY REVIEW: It’s a fun game, I don’t own the board version, and figure the board version would be boring in comparison. There’s not a single feature that you NEED that you have to pay for, so zero complaints. It’s just pure fun.

Preferred the Old Version
I miss having my character look like humans do. The game updated to pegs to “be more like the current board game”, but I would rather personalize a person than a peg. Also, being a female, I noticed that the computers only play as male. It’s alright until you play 100x over and it never changes. The new version has some okay-ish mini games. However, the #1 thing I miss from the old version was feeling like I actually loved the game. I feel like this is almost Mario party with rewards and mini games. I miss the steps of choosing a house and going down a risky road and possibly loosing it. Or having (like another reviewer suggested) the risky road have accidental children instead of always just taking 100k. I miss the album at the end making me feel like my life just ended. I want my character to age, not some peg to drive multiple vehicles and then retire. All in all... I prefer the old version, but will continue to play this because I have nothing better to do.

Great app but…
This is an amazing game! I recommend if you like board games and any games in general! I rate it five stars because it’s just that good! The only thing I think might be bad about it is that I try to play with my friends a lot but it doesn’t work a lot and when we finally make it on a server together it kicks us off the app or server and sometimes it just won’t load and my WiFi is always has all WiFi bars same thing with my friends. I hope that the creators fix this glitch soon and make it easier to get on servers with friends. Anyway this is a great app so I recommend you get it and thanks for reading my review! Have a nice day! Bye! I hope that this helps!

The old version is better
I like this version of life but I liked the old one better it’s just in the old version there weren’t pegs they looked more like humans and I don’t usually like the pegs because if you’re a girl like me wouldn’t you want to be a different color then pink!! I mean I like the color yellow and you need to be the color pink! You know girls can like blue and boys can like pink right?? Well anyway every time I play with computers the computers are always male. why? Can’t you guys switch it up a little!? And my last thing is why is every theme 3$ I mean why isn’t it 1$ this is coming from someone that has a hole bunch a money but still why does it need to be 3 bucks it should definitely be 1$ I mean let me get this straight: I think all the themes aren’t that cool and you just play the game with a theme I mean it’s like not that cool. It doesn’t deserve to be 3 hole bucks!! I guess that’s just my opinion. It’s not a bad game though 👍👍🙂.

Addicted to this game.
I don’t play games much on my phone but I play the game of life a lot with my family so I decided to pay for this app. Totally worth it! It’s pretty close to the classic game although I would change a few things. I hate the mini games when you land on a spinner. So hard to play on a cellphone. I also hate that landing on a pay day doesn’t give you a double pay day. It’s a waste of a turn. I also wish the game board was bigger because if you consistently roll high numbers you fly right through and don’t make as much money as you could. Other than that I really do love this game. Especially the button that lets you speed up the computer players. Hopefully one day playing with a friend on another device is possible.

This is a really good game
I wish I could keep it forever, but my dad won’t let me one time my brother played it, and he really liked it. He even win the game. Everyone needs to try it my whole family has it and they say that they like it but I wonder why I can’t win but this is a real game in real life. I have it you guys need to get it if you do thank you so much because I have been waiting until I get this game and I finally have it. It’s just amazing I wish I never have school so I can’t just play all day. Well, I think that’s all of saying how well is game of life if you think that you want it just buy it or ask your dad or mom and say that you need to buy it to bye-bye now.

MUST BUY
ITS SO GREAT! unlike the actual game, you can play mini games when u land on mi I game squares, AAAAAANNNNND it’s really cool cuz when u do things like graduate, ur peg goes into the collage thing, and comes out with a graduation gown and a diploma (when ur peg gets back in the car it goes away but it’s still cool) and it also does stuff like that for lots of other things like getting married and having kids. It’s also nice cuz if no one else wants to play, u can play against a computer. It also has other things that the actual in person game (or at least the one I have) don’t have, like the option to go to night school, “risky road”, and more. Overall, it’s worth the money

Love this game needs some fixes & improvements.
Me & family love this mobile game & the price is not bad at all ! But the game does have some glitches such as waiting screen constantly pops up & takes forever to load. Also when playing online a lot of people quit when losing 😢😢 they shouldn’t be able to do so , also adding chat would make things so much better & easier ! Instead of simple little emojis you can put & it should have peoples names instead of “player 1” “player 2” etc. I see you haven’t updated the game in a year ! But with quarantine going on this would be a perfect game to download & play , other then the waiting glitch & improvements this game is fun & awesome to play with family & friends through the phone !

Miss the old version
I got a new phone a while back and lost the game from my phone. It wasn't until a few days ago where I remembered about the game and re-downloaded it only to find its completely different. Change isn't always a bad thing, but in this case, it is... first of all, there's countless different features and additions to this version which is great.. if you didn't have to pay for every single one of them. Second, this version is rid completely of the classic game of life everyone knows and loves unlike the old version which reminded me just of the real game and brought back countless childhood memories. This new version is nowhere near as much fun as the real game like the old one was. I also find the game play kind of "busy" and confusing if that makes sense. I won't pay for different worlds to play in, but I would pay the classic version if I could. Some way to play that game again would be amazing.

Monopoly
It’s a nice time waster. It would be more enjoyable if each player could enter a name. My girls kept forgetting which colour they were. Why are all starting players always male. Two of my girls were upset that when they got to the chapel square to fine that they were a male when they thought they started the with a female. It would also be nice if there was a printable sheet to explain the number values for the babies. The girls were confused why some sisters go babies and some didn’t. I know you explained the first time. But after a few games the girlies forgot. And perhaps the designer could use better character icons. Not everyone enjoys the monster style characters

It’s really fun!
It’s a really good game but I would like to say something. Me and my sister were trying to play this game together online so we don’t need to take turns holding one phone. But it won’t work. Now I know that happens to almost every board game in the App Store but me and My sister really wanted to play online together so that’s a thing I would do if I made Game of life. Also, when I was young like 6 or 7 years old, I used to play it and we had no trouble because.. well I forgot. But All I know is we did not have trouble which was good. There’s something else that I want to change, well sometimes when I want to change my skin, I just wish it had more than free choices. :( but sorry for the weird complains. Except those, I love this game !!

Allot of waiting
I think this is a very great game to play but you have to wait a century before you can actually get to play board and play the game so I recommend to play the local play and hit computer cause you can actually get to play the game and not wait for it to load. I really wish it was like the actual life were we got to customize our peg and had it as a character not a peg but where we could name them and made it where the peg or character ages and gets old and looks different and where if you have kids they grow up through time and get there own car and just follows behind you and when you end up at the retirement home that your kids go and get their own house Overall I think it’s a great game just a lot of waiting and that it should be like real life

Like it, but…
First, a rebuttal to Talisha. You want LGBTQMNOP? Go to game of Life 2. You’ll be happy there. For us old folks, boys are still boys and girls are still girls! A couple of changes could be made to make it more interesting. The action cards for each venue could read respective to the venue they are in. If possible, the wheel could be downsized from to to 7 or 8. When you continue to spin 10’s, the game goes rather quickly. It the game of life, not speed. Another aside, I deleted Life 2 because of fulfilling Talisha like requests. If asked honestly, most people don’t care for’fluidity’! Plus, if you got $20 from Talisha; good for you!

Game is fun, but very unstable. Needs work.
I just purchased this game, and while playing over local WiFi with my girlfriend, we were forced to restart the entire game twice, after having downloaded the game only 30 minutes prior. We’re pretty upset, as we spent good money to play the game, and bought it in a pack with two more games from the developer, Clue and Battleship (Clue works well so far). I’m hoping the developer can either keep up with current iOS devices in the form of regular updates, or take the app down as to not lead honest consumers astray with a product that has a major design flaw. Playing a game for twenty minutes, only to have it crash and lose all your progress, is very frustrating. I’ll gladly change my review if the developer can craft up a fix for this, or the ability to save a game.

Love additions! More ideas for enhancements!
I love the new scenes, vehicles, and the fact that you can be gay. I like that the cards for getting others to pay your debt and such have gone away, and the new bonus system is better, but still has nothing whatever to do with the game of life. I wish the spins would give optional selects instead of random bonuses, like buying a house does. That way, it would create more of a story. Also, marriage should be optional, just like kids (but maybe add an "accident" option). Also, there should be a divorce option (maybe a split road, like a midlife crisis). Houses and jobs should match the scene we're playing. All in all, excellent upgrade, and worth spending to get it again!!!

Many subgames and graphics are great.
I’ve read some of the negative complaints on here and I’m not quite sure what they’re complaining about. In the board game you got one style of car and a little plastic peg. In this game you get a scooter you start out on and it evolves into a station wagon, same concept. As to the children, the little peg people get out of the car and go get their babies in the hospital, in the game if you landed on babies you added a little peg to your plastic car. Yes there are additions you can add to the game, but it doesn’t hamper game play if you don’t add them. There are many subgames that you can play and they don’t cost extra.

Awesome game but there are glitches
Awesome game! My husband and I play all the time and we have a blast. However, we’ve noticed that there are quite a few glitches in the game. We play multiplayer and sometimes his or my screen will freeze and the computer takes over to start playing for whoever’s screen is frozen. Also, sometimes after I’ve invited him to the game, it’ll show that he has started playing but it still shows on his end that it’s waiting on me to spin. Hopefully these glitches will be fixed soon because it’s caused us to have to restart the game almost every time we play because it doesn’t work right the first time. Pretty annoying. Please fix this especially since you have to pay for the game.

Great game, but could use some improvements.
The game is fun, I appreciate that when playing with a computer you can fast forward their turn. It would be nice if when you’re done reading the card etc. that we can click out of it. Along with the little graduation, wedding, baby segment. It drags the game. I absolutely can’t stand that there is no option to turn off the mini games. I’m not interested in mini games, just playing The Game of Life. I’m sure other users find them fun, but to have an option to turn them off and get matched with other players who have turned them off would be excellent. Or, at least when it’s just in local play. Otherwise, great game!

Love this game!
We always play this game. We loved the board game but thought it was so long and at the end you had to count your own money. With this, they count the money for you and it doesn’t take as long as the regular game. All the parts of this game are really fun and kid friendly. we got all of the board settings and loved them all. We also loved that we can all play on one device (my husband and I and my 9 and 6 year old while keeping a close eye on my sleeping 2 month old) Awesome game. Totally recommend to any family who loves the board game (or has never played the board game!)

Wish it was more like the old game
I feel like the game is too short for my taste. Not a fan of the cards it gives. And I wish the game would force you to stop and get a starter home, then stop to get another home later if you want like it use to do. I played 3 rounds and I couldn’t land on a home tile no matter how hard I tried. It would also be nice if you can rerelease the old game of life app you use to have and maybe just “modernize” It a little. It was just like the board game back in 2007 and it was perfect. Maybe it’s nostalgia, but it just had a more “life” feel to it.

Pay Pay Pay
I was super excited to play this game. Happily paid for the app, which I never do, and downloaded. Only to discover absolutely EVERYTHING is an extra fee once you get into the game. And the fees aren’t cheap. They’re more than you paid for the actual game. Very disappointing to realize you got basically nothing for your money. The game is fun enough, but the features are very limited unless you’re willing to cough up more and more money. There is no way to earn money to buy extra features within the game or level up in any way. It’s just the game, and you pay actual money for any extras you want. Also, there are serious connection issues regardless of how good your internet is. I’ve been kicked out of multiple games where I was winning because the game had connection issues. It’s just disappointing all around.

BEST. GAME. EVER!
I honestly think this is better than the actual board game! It’s so realistic! I do have a few things that I’d suggest/bring attention to. First, you only have 4 avatars and 1 car to choose from, which is kind of sad. Nobody will pay for just one avatar or car! Second, when my family plays the board game, if we have too many children to fit in one car, we take another car. But in this, the helicopter just drops the kids in on top of each other! Then I can’t tell how many kids I have! Maybe the car could expand? But this game will always be a 5/5 no matter what!!!!

Could be better
The game is overall enjoyable but already having to pay $2.99 to play the game- we shouldn’t have to pay an additional $4 just to get different cars and appearances. Also I strongly dislike how you have to land on a space in order to buy a house. That should be one of the stops along the journey. I played about 15 games or more and I only landed on the house option twice which is quite annoying. Also I always seem to roll high numbers and end up flying though the board and then having to wait for the computer players to catch up. Not very enjoyable. Also, you seem to earn loads of money for not doing much at all. Have never been in debt, yet. Should be more realistic like the board game.

Best game ever!
This game is not only a blast to play but it’s gorgeous and never has any issues. I had one question that I emailed to Marmalade and I received a response immediately. So I have to add Customer service to all the great things about this game AND another of their games....Clue! Update: I’d like to add a question. My husband and I play this a lot and when it comes to choosing a career after school he chooses whichever job comes with lucky number 5 regardless of the salary. And he wins every single time. 5 pays $130k bonus money each time anyone lands on it. And everyone lands on it ALL THE TIME. It is the most spun number every game. Hopefully fixable?

Good
Good game, but not worth the money. The game finishes quickly and there isn’t much incentive to win. I just played through two games in a matter of 15 mins and they weren’t really all that engrossing, to say the least. This game isn’t worth more than $1. The create-a-player needs MAJOR work. I couldn’t even figure out how to get the game started initially because I didn’t understand the create-a-player screen. It could be simplified, like the game could just ask a couple of questions in order to build the player profile and begin playing, instead of it all being jumbled little pictures with no words or directions of any kind.

Pretty Good App
I love this app, and I play it with my brother all the time. I just found a couple of little things that could use improvement, and one big thing. First things first, let’s start with the big thing. 1) the biggie is the online playing. Whenever I’m in the lobby, the app crashes. I never got a chance to start an online game because of the glitchy online mode. 2a)little changes are sometimes big. Like buying a house. In the actual game, you had to stop and buy one. Now you have to land on the square. After my brother found out that you get money at the end for your house, he would get upset if he didn’t land on the house square. 2b)life cards. I know instead of life cards, you get action cards. But I still miss that you get the life cards. The life tiles are better than the action cards, and I miss life tiles from the original game I played the other day with my family. 2c) one suggestion I have is being able to skip the CPU’s turn. I tried playing with CPUs, and their turns take forever!

“The game of life”
I played this game for FREE just a couple of years ago on my iPad. And it was great, I loved playing this game. YOU RUINED AN AWESOME GAME! It is hard to control, you have to buy everything. Most importantly it is overpriced. I waisted my money on this game. If I could get a refund I would, really disappointed at what this game became. Don’t buy this game. It doesn’t deserve even one star for this review. WHATEVER YOU DO DON’T WAIST YOU MONEY ON THIS GAME. The original was much better. This “new and improved version” is hard to control, not as fun and overpriced. I may be repeating myself but it’s not worth it. Also if you are playing by yourself against a computer the computer plays the whole time and you just have to sit and watch. Please just restore the game to the original, it was much better. Sorry for complaining, but this app isn’t worth buying.

Getting Money
This game is amazing and fun. It reminds me of when I use to play this game with my siblings. The only problem I have with it is when you receive money you shouldn’t have to tap it to get the money. I was in an online game and someone sat there not taking there money and I had to sit there for 10 minutes waiting for them to take their money until they had finally left the game. I think there should be a 10 second timer to take money until the game just gives it to you. This would stop the unnecessary wait time of people who are mad because they are losing and don’t take their money.

BEST GAME EVER
I only just started the game today and I already like it more than all my other favorite games. If you have never played this game then I recommend that you download this game RIGHT NOW because I promise you that you won’t regret it. I’m literally ADDICTED to this game. When I first started playing I made a few decisions I didn’t want to but later on in the game I started getting used to it though I will admit that the game gets pretty tiring if you don’t take breaks every once in a while( like me for example).With that being said, DOWNLOAD THIS GAME RIGHT NOW AND I PROMISE YOU THAT YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Great, but.....waiting
I absolutely love this game and the features it has. I think that having different maps and vehicles you can choose to play with is super fun, but one problem. I was playing in an online game where one of the players wasn't collecting their cash, so we couldn't keep playing until they collected it. I waited for at least 5 min and then I left. this was really upsetting though because I was in the lead and had A TON of money. I hope there can be a feature where if you aren't active for so long a computer player takes over, because the waiting sometimes just gets to be too long

Not the classic game...
I’m disappointed by this game. The previous version was better, but still not great. I don’t have a problem that this version exists, but why not make a version that brings back the game from 1960, which is what many people who play it are looking for? It’s still available in physical form as a re-issue. It could be an in-app purchase, as well as the 1970’s, ’80’s and other editions people remember growing up with. I would certainly buy it, but this version, with absolutely no acknowledgement of what came before, lots of mini-games, and re-skins that don’t change the game at all, is of no interest to me. I understand that the game has changed over time, but why not cater to the interests of more people by providing versions that more people will like?

Stupid AI.
Ok, so this a great game and all, BUT… the computer is cheating. I probably sound very stupid saying this, and it may even be just me, but it’s true. I was playing the game last night and decided to play against the computer. ALMOST EVERY TIME THE STUPID THING ROLLED AND 8 OR HIGHER. And on top of that, it wins all of MY competitions and games, AND all the cards it gets are good while I got ‘’you are fired for bringing your cat into work; get a new job’’. SERIOUSLY?! I don’t even have a cat, in game or out of game. I’m pretty sure the AI is mocking me. Anybody else out there who is reading my review and agreeing with me, LET US JOIN FORCES AND KICK THIS THING’S… computer cable? Eh, whatever. Please fix this! Thanks in advance!

It’s a convoluted mess
I spent $4.99 on this discombobulated game of nostalgia. I can’t finish one game because I lose track from all of the confusing mini games, small print “action cards”, and trying to pick up bonus money but it must be a glitch because it gives a hard time trying to swipe it. It’s graphically impressive, that is why I gave one star but the gameplay itself is not engaging. My solution: come up with a better way to spin the wheel; ditch the mini games; and have card match games or match 3, ANYTHING besides those weak mini games currently. Also, even though the graphics are stunning, is there a more simplistic 2d version. I was hoping more for thr traditional board game But I’m NOT HAPPY I had to spend 4.99 to realize the game is MEH

Wonderful
It is beautiful, this game. I didn’t know how to play at first but once you ice it, it becomes better. I don’t know if I will replay this though, once may be more than enough. Played on my iPhone. Kept spinning the Hashbro but it kept giving me low amount of spaces. That is, the dial doesn’t move far. I don’t know why. In the end, I lost to the computer. Had a gay marriage, 3 daughters (adopted probably), and 3 houses. First I bought a Dream Villa, then a Family House, and finally a retired Country House. One of the interesting thing is I have no idea the number of space moved.
