The Game of Life 2.1 5 55 55
Spinning Wheel Spin the wheel and choose your path...started out fun but I did not care for the Wheel!, too much attention to that and the loud noise it makes. I did like 3-D play. I stop playing after three minutes. January 26, 2013
Life I had very high hopes about this game and thought I would totally enjoy it, but unfortunately I didnt. Would be nice to see the whole board instead of just the wheel most of the time. This is exactly like the game I used to play with my parents way back when but I did not like it what so ever. So happy that I didnt waste a club credit on this one. October 24, 2012
Problem I Encountered Installed the game on my laptop n was so excited to play only to realize the game does fit within my screen resolution. n besides that fact the option to even take the game out of full screen was not n option....SMH October 15, 2014
Where do I start Just awful! The retro look could have made it fun but it doesn't work on a PC format, it is just a pushy, uninspired adaptation of a cardboard game....and all is lost in translation. Instead of spending their time on "The Game of Life", the developers and BF should encourage format and interface suited for the PC. No fun, no thrills, nothing to rescue it...Get a Life might prove a better title! October 24, 2012
Please remake this game! I'm sad to think that since this game bears the brand name, this will be the only release on BFG. That's too bad if that's true. I LOVED this board game growing up. I only played this computer version for a record 3 minutes! That's how bad it was. No explanations on what does what. My freebie cards had me wondering what they do. I couldn't see whatever was written at the bottom of the screen - even after hiding my toolbar. The game is so zoomed in, you have no idea what the board holds in store - - and it got me dizzy and confused. No thanks! October 25, 2012
A Definite No No I couldn't even make it through the first 5 minutes of this game. You have absolutely no idea what is going on with the turns and what you are supposed to do. The developers of this game should as others have commented "Get a Life." The graphics were awful and the fact you had to play in windowed mode is a real bummer. October 24, 2012
VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!! The day before this title was released I had just searched the web for this game (It's my all time favorite). Glad that I played the trial first. You have the feeling that you are just the button pusher! You don't know what is going on in the game. Opened in a small window, couldn't invest or look at stats. Overall I liked the one that I owned in 1999 for the PS 1, than this one! I kept thinking, "Maybe this is a site wide BETA test!!" NOT YOUR BEST BIGFISH!!!!! October 25, 2012
Game of Life?? more like game of bad...the window u play in is too long cannot even clikc the ok button...i guess they think everyone has a 20 in monitor! don't waste your hard earned money on this one....usually i encourage ppl to at least try a game and decide for themselves...but this is baaad!

Don't Waste Your Time! I tend to like about half the games that get poor reviews. This is definitely one that deserves BAD reviews! I used to play a PC version that is, sadly, no longer compatible with my OS. It had an enthusiastic announcer that helped keep track of what was going such luck here. The other game's board had the spaces labeled and you could pull out to see the whole board at once. In this version, you can't tell where you're going, or where the other players are most of the time. None of the squares are labeled either. You only find out what it does when you land on it. Part of the strategy of the original game was seeing the other player's positions, the upcoming spaces, and routing options. You won't get any of that here. When given an option of which fork to take, you can't see the benefits/pitfalls of either. Just pick one blindly. There is an info icon on each player's card, but it doesn't tell you anything when it's clicked during game play. You don't know how much income the others make, or what kind of risks they're taking. Another detriment to strategy. You do get to see each player's current cash and life tiles if you land on a space to take money from one of them, but this is no great bonus. The most irritating new addition was the "sue for $100,000" space. While I can see potential strategic benefits and understand that its "updated" for today's players, it reminds me how over litigated the world has become. I play games to relax not live in a virtual mirror. The best part was the skip button. It lets you skip over all the other player's actions. At least it gets the game over with faster.

What a Dud!!! PopCap I can't believe you created this piece of junk. I'm sorry, but the only way you would like this game is if you enjoy clicking the mouse, because that's pretty much all you get to do. Dreadful game. October 28, 2012
