[i]UNO[/i] really needs no introduction, I’m sure of it. It’s one of the best, easiest and most popular card games out there. Bringing it to the Xbox Live! Arcade on the 360 was no difficult task, due to the simplicity of the game.

You play against the computer or people (you can play it on Live!), and play [i]UNO[/i]. That’s all there is to do it. If you happen to be one of those people that don’t know [i]UNO[/i], you go around, and putting down cards that match the color or symbol/number of the previous card.

The game is good if you want to add a few easy gamer score points to your account (a total of 200 available). It’s also fun playing with friends online for a few games, in between some “serious” 60 dollar game.

The downsides are, that for one, the music completely sucks. Thank goodness that you can upload your own music onto the Xbox 360 and listen to that meanwhile. Also, the game tends to be monotonous after a while.

I would give this game an 8/10. It’s fun, and good while it lasts, and fairly cheap (400 MS points). If you want to play this alone, then don’t bother with it. The true fun lies within the multiplayer. I say, go ahead and purchase it, because it’s an excellent (not to mention cheap) multiplayer experience.

Score: 5/5
