UNO Review: Deal Your Cards Now
The cult classic game of your childhood, UNO, returns with a whole arsenal of incredible features, including video chat support and a new theme system. Download UNO, collect combinations of cards and play active cards to change the course of the game.
Graphics – 4/5
Even though the graphics of the game are simple, they are also bright and colorful. There are special Theme Cards available that allow you to choose the theme you like and enjoy the gameplay even more. There are themed cards that give you the opportunity to block other players from making you draw and other things.
There is also a soundtrack in the game that, unfortunately, may become quite boring after a while.
Gameplay – 4/5
UNO is a popular American table game, which both children and adults love to play. This is one of the card games, but is much more interesting and quite easy to master. There are more than a hundred cards in the game with four colors – red, yellow, green, and blue, with numbers from 0 to 9.
The most interesting thing is that there are special cards in the deck of cards such as Draw Two, Reverse, Skip, Change Color, Draw Four, and even a Swap Hands card. If these cards are in your hand, you can easily beat your opponents, but if your opponents have these cards, you will have to try hard to win. Until recently, UNO was a regular table game, but today you can play it online with friends.
It is important to be very attentive in the process of the game and not get distracted because one wrong card in your direction can lead you to defeat.
Controls – 5/5
The control system of the game is as easy as the game itself. Study the mechanics, choose the themes that you like most and enjoy the gameplay.
After the cards are dealt, you just need to choose those that you want to get rid of first. The faster you will get rid of your cards, the higher are your chances of becoming a winner.
The new version of the game also has a video chat support that makes it possible for you to communicate with other players online.
Replay Value – 4/5
Due to the fact that this is the favorite game of many fans of table games, UNO has high replay value. Even those who got introduced to the game recently don’t mind spending long hours to finally get one card in their hand. However, the game is not free, and many players are not willing to pay for it to play online. According to UNO review, they’d rather play the classic game with cards.
The Bottom Line
UNO is a fun game that will take you back to your childhood. However, it is quite repetitive and soon becomes boring. The game is digitalized now, but it is still as much fun as it was. On the other hand, it is not worth paying $9.99 for it when you can just play it using regular UNO cards with your friends.
