The Game of Life for Negative User Reviews

Facebook requiredThey fail to mention that Facebook is required for online. Very disappointing..Version: 2.1.0

CrashesThe was only my second game after purchasing the game about 30 minutes ago and it’s has crashed! Really annoying considering I was actually doing quite well and it’s really annoying that I’ve paid money for this game but I can’t actually play it. Very disappointed.Version: 2.2.2

Extremely DisappointedI love the board game, I was hoping there would be a game option where you play against CPU’s, and that you don’t have to be only so you don’t have to be online. You pay £3 for the game, but have to then pay to get other avatars, transportation etc. It is laggy, and not worth it. I am very very disappointed. Maybe if they add a single player mode I would give it higher..Version: 2.2.2

Absolutely wrongMarmalade studio bought this game from Hasbro, and you have changed almost all of the game’s fundamentals. The gameplay experience has degraded for me so much; it’s a bitter disappointment and not worth my time or even the little amount of money that I paid for this..Version: 2.1.0

Not worth the $I honestly wish I could get my money back. Had I known how bad this version is, not to mention it crashed in my very first game, I would not have purchased it. Nothing about this motivated me to want to play another round, it’s so extremely, painfully basic. I wonder how many bored housewives have given this game good reviews because it is the most basic game I have downloaded let alone PAID for. The hype is just hype, don’t be fooled by the reviews. It is definitely NOT worth paying for. Totally unimpressed..Version: 2.2.2

Needs a lot of improvement!I have played this game maybe 10 times now and it is impossible to load, drops out during the game and there is a lot of waiting for it to connect again. I don’t have a problem with any other game I play. Also why can you not set up a user profile and keep it and not to have to set all that as you enter a game? Could also do with some big improvements in the crazy games you are expected to play. These are so poorly done. Why are we paying for this game? they certainly don’t spend the money on who they employ to do their graphics..Version: 2.2.2

BoringI 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..Version: 2.2.2

UrggghCould he a good game but basic problems are letting it down. You can be waiting in a lobby for a while as matchmaking is poor and if your phone rings or for any reason you come off the app during play, you are booted from the game you were playing. Considering most games on on for a while... this is a problem. I have played 3 games this evening, all of which have crashed during the game. I have not finished a game once. I feel like I wasted £3 on this but at least I saved money by not buying any bundles. There are free games that perform better than this; tbh it feels like just another example of kids being ripped off online for not knowing any better and parents unaware..Version: 2.2.2

Great app butIt’s a good app even though it costs money it’s worth it I did get annoyed about in game purchases because I payed for the app so I expected everything to be free but it wasent but the classic map is great but it does get boring over time and if you don’t have the money to spend on new maps then it’s just boring. It’s also annoying when you have to wait for people join!!!!.Version: 2.2.2

Needs ImprovementHad a great time playing the game but I am experiencing an unfortunate glitch problem. For some reason the audio on the game ( both music and sound fx) are non existent no matter how much I adjust the volume bars unless I play with my headphones connected. Headphones on, sound is fine, Headphones off, no dice (no pun intended).Tried restarting my phone and anything else I could think of to see what could help. But nothing would. Finally decided to uninstall and reinstall to see if that worked, well it did not. Furthermore I had just purchased one of the dumb character packs for a dollar before the uninstall and that disappeared upon reinstalling. Talk about adding insult to injury...Version: 2.2.2

Nothing like the originalFirst 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.....Version: 2.1.0

Multiplayer problemsWe couldn't get the multiplayer on different devices to work. You can play with random people or on the same device. The only online option is via Facebook and we couldn't get it to work at all. Disappointing considering monopoly and cluedo both work fine and no Facebook required..Version: 2.2.2

Allot of waitingI 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.Version: 2.0.4

Rip offWhen you play you have to pay for the actual game and to think there are extras you have to pay for as well. I think there shouldn’t be in app purchases for paid games.Version: 2.1.0

Glitched outKept kicking me and my friends off the app while playing! Disappointed! Think I would like a refund..Version: 2.2.2

$$$$$Pay for the app and one basic game: then pay an extremely high amount for everything else. Waste of money. Not worth it, save your money..Version: 2.1.0

Not as good as the originalSome nice features in this updated version but I begrudge having to pay for this version when the original can no longer be played because the developers haven’t bothered to update the old one. Meaning I’ve paid for a game I cannot play any longer and have had to pay again to get this version. The new game should have been made available for free to purchasers of the first one..Version: 2.0.4

Multiplayer is brokenEverytime I try and play through Facebook with my friends the game freezes or crashes halfway through and doesn’t let us continue. It has happened three times in a row and we have to keep restarting the entire app. Not good..Version: 2.2.2

Pretty badYou can only use the default map and for the other maps you have to pay money! Please change that!🤬.Version: 2.2.2

DisappointedDoesn’t work to play with others online, very disappointed after paying for the app, seems like a scam..Version: 2.2.2

A mockeryThis is not the game of life.Version: 2.2.2

Cheaters Online+Rip OffsThis game is awesome bug there are a few things I want to point out. In Online Play I played with this person that had a shiny purple as their colour and cheated. We were playing Grab the Cash and she got 28 and 2 loans, I got 31 and 1 loan. I lost and got 60K while she got 100+K. And with the wheel she spun ig in a pattern because she took a long time with her turns and was probably getting her cheats ready, so I left. The next thing is some parts of this game are basically rip offs. You buy the game and you pay more again..Version: 2.0.4

Nothing Like the OriginalOverall, 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..Version: 2.2.2

Not worth itCOnsidering you're paying for the app you would expect it to be perfect but other apps that are free are better than this app. It stops by itself midgame with the 'waiting...' screen and you can't do anything but exit the game then you end up not being able to get back in the game. Very glitchy and not worth the $5 I paid for it.Version: 2.2.2

Too many purchasesI enjoy the game however I don’t like the fact that you have to pay for the game, then have to pay for different places to play, and different vehicles! Too may purchases for my liking. If I had known this before hand I wouldn’t have purchased in the first place. Only having one place and one vehicle to play with, for game that last 10 minutes maximum, isn’t worth £3.00.Version: 2.1.0

Game of LifeTerrible game, was a waste of money, I have perfect internet reception yet it will not find players when I search for my niece. So She cannot play the game. Disappointing..Version: 1.2.3

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..Version: 2.1.0

Online with friends requires forced Facebook login!The single player game is fine, but this type of game comes alive when played with friends and family. I bought the board games bundle including Game of Life, Monopoly, Cluedo and Battleships. The latter 3 can all be played online with friends without the need for additional accounts etc. They play really well and it’s fun to play online with family and friends, especially during lockdown. Game of Life bucks this simplicity by selling out to Facebook and making it mandatory if you want to play online with friends. As such this is an instant delete. If it weren’t part of a bundle I’d be getting it refunded too. No chance of up selling extra packs etc like I’ve bought with Monopoly and Cluedo. Very disappointing, short sighted and user hostile..Version: 2.2.2

Lost connection too muchGreat game, good fun but a player always loses connection without fail and we have to start again. You should be able to rejoin them but you can’t. The game just starts ‘hanging’ and nothing can revive that one player. It’s been someone different each time so not a WiFi issue, a definitive game issue. Not finished one game yet. Am asking for a refund until they can fix this issue..Version: 2.2.2

CrashesHad to delete it...it really hates live games for some reason and crashes constantly. Otherwise a great game.Version: 1.4.3

Unstable as hellThe game is fun when it works but 9/10 games I get a loading screen that never resolves before I can finish playing. I also can’t check my texts between turns without it completely disconnecting me in an irreversible way.Version: 2.2.2

SCAMBought this app and it keeps saying server full!!! do not waste your money.Version: 2.2.2

Kicks me offNice little game to pass the time but keeps kicking me off which is severely disappointing considering I had to pay money for this..Version: 2.2.2

The old version is betterI 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 👍👍🙂..Version: 2.1.0

RubbishI bought this game a couple weeks ago, I have to try start a new game around 3 times before anyone joins them and it puts you into a group of 2+. Some people don’t click ready to play so it never starts. I’ve had it where during the game one player doesn’t take their turn so you just sit there and wait for them to spin the number which can take 5 - 10 mins half the time. You have to pay for all these extra features. Would rather pay for another game..Version: 2.2.2

Fun but disappointingLast night my friend and I played the board game of the Game Of Life. We had lots of fun and we decided today to each buy the £2.99 version on our phones so we could play online together. We have experienced many problems so far. We first wanted to connect with each other and in order to do so we had to use Facebook. I had a Facebook account but my friend didn’t. So we had to put the effort into using another account and downloading the app in order for us to connect. After about 5 tries of trying to connect it finally connected. We then started to play the first game and we were playing perfectly fine until my friend accidentally closed her phone and we lost all of our progress. Annoyed, but we attempted to play a second game and we lost connection and we lost all of our progress yet again. We were so desperate to play a successful game, we tried to play again. We had a lot of fun while playing again for the 3rd time and this is was we are most disappointed and annoyed with. We were just about to get the results while they were counting our action cards and the screen froze and then said we “lost connection” yet again. We have a stable internet connection so I really do think the game it too sensitive to losing connection. I do regret purchasing this app and I hope people find this review helpful before they buy..Version: 2.2.2

ProblemsThis game was awesome when I first got it but lately there are bugs, it cuts out randomly halfway through play and the game shuts off. When a player leaves the game buffers for ages before letter the remaining players know they’ve left and it slows down to a ridiculous speed for no reason. Any chance these bugs can be fixed? Then it might be an awesome game to give a better rating..Version: 2.1.0

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..Version: 2.2.2

3/5I like this game, sucks that you have to buy different worlds once you already buy the app..Version: 2.2.2

Preferred the Old VersionI 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..Version: 2.0.4

Waste of moneyThere's never other players able to be found, meaning it's only the odd occasion you're even able to play. Pointless 😩.Version: 1.2

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..Version: 2.1.0

Sort of worth the moneyI mean it’s good in all but you shouldn’t have to pay.Version: 2.2.2

Very disappointingThis 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..Version: 2.2.2

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?.Version: 2.2.2

Great game but why am I paying for extras when I’ve already paid?I love this game but why do the developers feel the need to charge for extras when they are already charging an up front fee. This doesn’t sit well with me and I won’t be purchasing any “extras” as they don’t add value to the game or my experience. Not a good move in my books..Version: 2.2.2

Bug!Les jeux s’arrête seul et invitez des amis est compliqué. C’est mauvais..Version: 2.2.2

New update :/Can’t just play the classic game of life anymore. The players are riding motor cycles and you have to pay for any other vehicle. I just want the option to play the original like when I downloaded it..Version: 2.2.2

Terrible gameDO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME. Spent 16$ so my family could all play and first time we try an online match it says server full. Not working at all and we just wasted our money. STAY CLEAR OF THIS SCAM APP!.Version: 2.2.2

Awesome game but there are glitchesAwesome 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..Version: 2.2.2

LifeFor a game I paid for I am not very happy. Played for about 30minutes and the game crashed 4 times. Fix this please.Version: 1.6

SucksYou need to pay another $30 to get full version..Version: 2.1.0

So DisappointingLife has been my favorite board and online game my whole life. I own the board game and have played online back when you had to buy it on CD’s for your desktop and have had the app in years past. This new version is absolute trash and a disgrace to the game. The new layout is awful and it needs to go back to what the original is. I want to be an actual person like you could be on the CD and not a peg. It is great you can be gay or straight though. I do not like the action cards and the mini games, I don’t want to play those. I read so many great reviews before purchasing and I have no clue how people enjoyed this app, it is not the game of life that I know, you need to change a lot. I’m just very disappointed because I love this game and this version just made it trash..Version: 2.0.4

Facebook.... No ThanksThis could be a great game and a lot of fun to play with friends online BUT unlike Monopoly or Battleship or Cluedo you have to login with Facebook. This is a big FAIL. Not everyone has Facebook or wants Facebook so why try to make us sign up to Facebook in order to play online with friends. Facebook has a disgusting reputation with regard to privacy and forcing us to use it tarnishes your reputation..Version: 2.2.2

No good for playing on lineThis game is great to play with others at home BUT useless in lock down to play with family over the internet. The only way to play remotely is if you have a Facebook account which my relatives don’t. A waste of £12 (4 downloads). We had to go back to playing Monopoly and Ludo which work fine without a Facebook account..Version: 2.2.2

Too much moneyYou have to pay money to get the game in general but then to play different boards and stuff you have to pay more money. So without paying more money to play different boards it just gets boring over time playing the same thing.Version: 2.2.2

Pay Pay PayI 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..Version: 2.0.4

StuckI can’t get off of the “story of life” screen everytime it pops up? How do I get off of that and continue playing.Version: 2.0.3

Miss the old versionI 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..Version: 2.0.4

Obviously riggedThis is a fun game but it’s so obvious that it is rigged. It always makes whoever is blue win and get all the good action cards, always spin high numbers, and more. If you are going to rig the game, then it definitely shouldn’t be $5 or everyone would be wasting their money. Otherwise, it’s pretty good and one of my best games that don’t need wifi..Version: 2.1.0

Good appI.Version: 2.1.0

SadI got all the words and it was a lot of money. But then my sister deleted the game on my iPad. When I got the app back I didn’t have my packs..Version: 2.2.2

CashOverall the game is AMAZING I just wanna say that the fact it is $5 is just a bit to over the top for me. Also, after 3 or 4 games, I gets a bit boring. If I knew it would’ve been this way, I wouldn’t have bought it. But on the plus side, it is good, keep up the good work! 🥳.Version: 2.2.2

Crashes just before ResultsI was really enjoying playing this game but last night it crashed just as the results were coming through at the end of the game. When I opened the game again, it was as if the game had never happened. There’s no point playing the game if you can’t find out who wins! Really frustrating..Version: 2.1.0

I can connect and play with my friend onlineI want to play with my friend but I can connect my Facebook account to play with him……….. I have a error message.Version: 2.2.2

Waste of moneyI actually hate that I’m even writing this review. I love boardgames. And I love playing my board games on my phone. So I was very excited when I saw that The Game of Life had a mobile game. Unfortunately, the $2.99 that I spent was wasted. Loading the game is a nightmare. It took so long that two of the players in my live game quit. And once we finally got the game going, the game actually froze in the middle of a computers turn. I didn’t even get to finish! I was able to play a local game by myself in order to get a feel for it, but that was no fun because the computer doesn’t offer any challenges. There are many games, which I thought would be pretty cool, but they turn out to be much tougher to place than I thought. It is almost impossible to see what you were doing with some of the mini games depending on the size of your screen. My advice? Stay far away. If I could get a refund, I would!.Version: 2.2.2

MoneyIs there a way to get my money back?.Version: 2.2.2

SadTakes way to long to load and it kicks me out of the game. Waste of my money and time, I advise you don’t get it..Version: 2.2.2

Cannot even start a gameI have only had the game for today and enjoyed playing the short mode a few times however whenever I try to play a full length game and join others online there is always one player that never is ready. I waited for between five and ten minutes for a game to start and the player has never become ready. If this was one game I could understand however I have attempted several times now and have had to success joining and going on to play a full game.Version: 2.1.0

Pretty goodI thought it was okay, wouldn't have paid all of that for it if I knew what it was like. The App Store should have a demo option 🍪.Version: 1.6

“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..Version: 2.1.0

AwfulYou have to pay cash just to get it....every time I want to play there is no one and I’m stuck in lobby. You can only play one board. Every other board etc you have to pay more! All pay game. Disappointed..Version: 2.1.0

THIS GAME SUCKSThe computers are rigged and they r racist..Version: 2.2.2

WellI was a big fan of this game growing up and was loving this when I first bought it however they have removed the ability to play with random people online via network mode which is such a disappointment! My interest in this game has gone now. I don't understand why they removed it when it worked well..Version: 1.9.9

Great design but online play stinksIf 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.Version: 2.2.2

Terrible gameMost boring 3 mins of my life before I gave up.Version: 1.2.3

Could be betterThe 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..Version: 2.1.0

Great but a few thingsI 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 :).Version: 2.2.2

Bug. Can’t finish a game since I bought...Online or vs computer bug.Not working Wells.Version: 2.2.2

Shouldn’t be $5I do love the game if life but on a phone screen it is a little complicated. There is a lot going on graphically and it can be confusing as to what is happening or what will happen. For the basic features it provides it should not be $5. That is way to much to pay for a game that includes a lot of in app purchases. Overall I did enjoy the game but it was too complicated for phone screens and the enjoyment was limited after it was played once or twice. I would pay $5 for an app which had all the Hasbro games (or a collection) not just one which had limited features. If I had known these things I would have NOT bought the game..Version: 2.1.0

Well designed but unable to add friends even via FacebookMy friends and me paid for and downloaded this app. Sadly, none of us were able to play together. We even tried to invite each other through Facebook but nothing worked. One friend received the link but we were unable to see each other in the list of players, the other friend did not receive the invite at all. It also keeps saying connection lost when waiting to add players..Version: 2.2.2

Hate itPlease just give us the old version because that is childish and stupid. I lasted a minute playing before deleting the application.Version: 1.6

Multiplayer with friends doesn’t workBrought this game to play with my family online, can only do this with a Facebook login and the game requests never work! Even when they do get a game request the notification only opens the game and doesn’t even take you to the game lobby. Would be a lot better to just create a game code like Monopoly, Cluedo and Battleship! Can’t be that hard to do right? Haven’t even been able to play a game and was very disappointed.Version: 2.2.2

Won’t workMe and my boyfriend are trying to play and it won’t let us play with each-other after spending money on this app I am p***** off and annoyed. It won’t let us connect by playing online or sending the link on Facebook. Do not buy if your looking to play with friends and family..Version: 2.2.2
