This version of scrabble is exactly like the boardgame. I like it that it is not spiced up or pimped, but just plain scrabble.
I played medium difficulty and that was challenging enough for me, I lost from the computer. You can play relaxed, no time-pressure (nobody irritated becasue you think too long, lol)
When you have no one to play the boardgame with, this is an excellent replacement.

NOT AS FUN AS PLAYING WITH FRIENDS!
The game itself has the classic as well as timed modes of play. I played one game of classic against the computer and won, and it was to boring to play again. But if you love scrabble or just want some practice before challenging your friends you will like this game. I probably won't purchase this game but I do feel it's a game well done for what it is, so to scrabble lovers I recommend this.

SCRABLE BE' DABBLED
It was quite fun for a word game. Of course computer knows words we wouldn't, for it is the dictionary. I like it better playing solo. Their are different levels, and it is quite nicer than using a board with tiles.
Only thing is, if I get this it will be with a credit or the 2.99 special. Have fun all you word geeks, this is for you.

Scrabble's Back Baby!
I was looking everywhere for my PC version of Scrabble and then I noticed that Big Fish has a brand new version. I immediately downloaded it.
About the Game
You can play against the computer, all by yourself in Solo mode or in a hot seat mode with up to three others.
You VS CPU
I've only tried Normal and Hard difficulty levels. On Normal, I'm able to consistently beat the computer, but CPU kicks my butt on Hard difficulty. There is a "Best Play" button where the game will find and place the best possible play for you, up to four times per game.
This is the practice mode, where you play with yourself until all the tiles are gone or you quit. There is a teacher button that will rate your last play by whether it's smiling or not. If you click on the button, it will compare your play with the best possible play.
I've only tried it once. It's easy to set up and can accommodate up to four players.
There is also a built in dictionary with a list of acceptable two letter words. The dictionary only tells you if the word is valid and does not provide a definition.
Sharp graphics, straight forward interface. Computer opponent should provide a good challenge for all players.
Placing letters with the mouse is exactly what you'd expect. Unfortunately, placing letters with the keyboard is poor. There is a purple cursor you can move around, but you cannot simply place the cursor, adjust its orientation (down or across), and start typing. Instead, you must move the cursor to the desired tile before placing each letter. This definitely could use some improvement.
Also, the dictionary should provide definitions from Websters Scrabble Dictionary.
Another suggestion would be to come up with a "workshop" mode to help in learning important skills with Scrabble, such as placing the high scoring letters J, Q, X and Z.
This is a very well executed version of Scrabble that could use a few improvements to make it perfect. I'm so glad to have it on my computer!
