Once again, here's one of those games that are so much better on the Joyce. With the precision of the fine pixels everything is laid out in a clear fashion and so there is no confusion about what is happening at all. The game is enjoyable as always and with the addition of the help mode it makes it a great pleasure to play. What appeal this will have i can't guess but it deserves to do well.

Scrabble is the perfect game for those evenings when your starfighter has blown a turbo, or the dragon has eaten the princess. Just sit back, relax, and wrap your brain around a more intellectual challenge.

Nicely presented conversion of a subject which has obvious limitations.

Scrabble falls neatly into the software catalogue somewhere between Chess and Othello. It is a rather slow, but nevertheless interesting, game. Not being a member of Mensa I didn't know the difference between a double letter score and a triple word score, but if I was in any doubt the computer players certainly weren't! The way the machine manages to make words scoring over fifty is quite beyond me. Still, the hint option came in handy (even if I still didn't get the word.). Scrabble is a fascinating piece of software, very well programmed and very user friendly.

Unlike most boardgames, this loses little in its computer translation - and the 16-bit opponent can prove very tough indeed. If you like word games both conversions should prove very attractive.
Negativ ist natürlich wieder der englische Wortschatz zu bewerten, denn der Computer kann nur englische Worte legen. Vielleicht ist dieser Umstand für Englischlernende aber wieder ganz praktisch. Doch wer dies schon gewöhnt ist, sollte sich IBM-Scrabble ruhig einmal anschauen. Zwar macht das Brettspiel viel mehr Spaß, aber dort kann man nur mit mehreren Personen spielen, während man bei der PC-Version nicht auf Mitspieler angewiesen ist. Fazit: Scrabble ist eine gelungene englische (im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes) Umsetzung des populären Brettspieles.

Insgesamt ist Computer Scrabble eine sehr solide Brettspielumsetzung, deren einzige Schwäche im Konzept liegt. Am meisten Spaß macht Scrabble nämlich immer noch ohne Computer...
