Pros Works in Windows 7.
Cons Doesn't work in Vista.
Recommended it? Yes

This game works again in Windows 7!  Just a couple of compatibility changes and it was working perfectly.  I loved this game with Windows 98 and gave it away when it wouldn't work with Vista upgrade.  However I heard Windows 7 was better for game compatibility and thought I'd find a...

Pros Colorful
Cons Annoying panel jokes, not faithful to the original game, no lesbian pegs
Recommended it? No


The story of The Game Of Life is that of a sarcastic internet user who spent $10 on a game at Walmart without first checking to make sure it doesn't, you know, suck. Behold my lack of judgment! Behold my shame! Look down upon me!

Anyway, this is a CD-ROM adaptation of the... Read full review »

Pros Fun game to play
Cons Unusual concept for a computer game, game needs more variety.
Recommended it? Yes

At first, I thought that selling Game of Life for the computer was not the best move for Hasbro to make, as it is such a simple game, and probably wouldn?t have much replay value. In reality, the game is a fun game to play several times.

Spin to see who goes first
The game is similar... Read full review »
