I have called UNO! more times than I could ever count since I started playing this classic when I was about 5 years old. Now, I also have my four year old hoooked. A few weeks ago, to my extreme pleasure, I downloaded it from Xbox Live. Since then, I have been OBSESSED.
UNO is a fantastic game perfectly suited for the Xbox 360 that will delight kids and adults, the same people who probably already play it with real cards. While the computer opposition might be a bit overwhelming (I swear the computer cheats), the online play with leaderboards and voice chatting makes for a great social environment that will keep you entertaining and online for countless hours.
All in all, this is exactly what I'd want in an Uno game. It isn't perfect, but it's pretty darn close and allows for some inexpensive fun that can be played any time you want. The ability to change the rule se to suit your taste is a bonus and the online capability is fantastic. I'd really like to have more musical choices, but I can deal. You can also download special packs, including the new 35th anniversary deck (seriously, there are some interesting twists offered up by this deck), so I hope we see more decks available in the future. In the end, this is four hundred points you will NOT regret spending. It's only Uno, I know, but hey... it's UNO and that's still a good thing after all these years.
Merle Robbins hatte 1971 eine wirklich tolle Idee. Er nahm ein paar Karten, schrieb Zahlen darauf und nannte es UNO. So oder so ähnliches ist das wohl bekannteste Kartenspiel entstanden und pünktlich zum 35 jährigen Jubiläum können alle Xbox 360 Spieler gegen Freunde aus aller Welt antreten. Wir haben es für euch getestet und verraten nun, ob UNO hält, was es verspricht.
For less than you'd pay for a brand-new deck of actual Uno cards, you could be playing Uno on your Xbox 360, which is a pretty hard point to argue against, unless you're the kind of person that simply doesn't like Uno. But, if you're looking for a fun and relaxing time with some online friends, or you need to take the edge off after a particularly intense Geometry Wars session, it's hard to go wrong with Uno.
If you like card games and elevator music, UNO is right up your alley. Honestly, it would have been hard to mess this one up. It plays identically to the card game, even requiring you to press X to yell a virtual "UNO!" There's always a good amount of people playing online, so it's great for the occasional pick-up-and-play session.

400 marketplace points for the classic card game that sucked away hours of my childhood is a superb deal. None of the Hardwood Card games have the same worth of Uno. The graphical issues and the below average audio are forgivable considering the addictive nature of classic Uno gameplay. Don't hesitate to add Uno to your stable of Xbox Live Arcade games, especially for those looking to recapture a bit of their youth.
Without games like UNO, Xbox Live Arcade would feel a lot like a retro museum. There are a load of great games on the Live Arcade, but games with such broad appeal as UNO aren't as common. Certain players may scoff at the likes of UNO being a killer-app for Microsoft's excellent service, but it's a fine addition to your hard drive. Whether you want something to relax with or you want to play competitively for the best part of a day, you can't go wrong with UNO.
The good news is that the team who have designed the 360 version have clearly kept this in mind, and thrown in plenty of customisation options. You can determine everything from which cards can be played when to how points are scored, and how the winner is ultimately decided. Admittedly, there's no option for Strip Uno or Winner Gets to Slam Losers' Fingers in a Drawer Uno, but there are some pleasures that videogames just cannot emulate.
Even though it's a fun, social game to play online, it's still Uno. In other words, if you hated Uno the card game, you're going to hate Uno the Xbox Live Arcade game. Assuming you like Uno, know that with the camera on the way, Uno's social aspect will only increase. Uno's statistic tracking and online leaderboards add surprising depth to this package. Plus, it's only 400 Microsoft Points.
Overall given the price point, there is enormous replay value and Uno is another Xbox Live arcade game worth purchasing. The original card game can be found online for $6 + shipping while the Xbox Live game is only about $5 and you don’t lose the cards – so give it a shot! - Dan Clarke.

While the complaints are obvious, the 360 does handle a fine game of UNO. It's not a technological marvel by any means, but the ability to play online is a definite step up from the limited options of family and friends. The price is proper to go along with the ease of play too. It's UNO with the worst case of elevator music-itis. If that sounds appealing, then this is a must have Arcade title.
