  • Great! Except I can’t figure out how to pay back loans. Aug 9, 2020

    By Spiral nautilus
    I really like this game and think it’s an improvement over the first life game because it doesn’t tell you to do real life things like tell another player your favorite book (which, when you’re playing by yourself, was irrelevant and impossible). I also find the transgender option interesting (even though I’m not). The only problem I have is that the game tells you that you have to pay back loans before the end of the game or you will get points taken away (and you do)...but I can’t find any way to actually pay them back, even if I do have the money. I would think that they would have put in a button (like the mortgage button in monopoly) where you can take or pay back loans at will. If anyone can tell me how, I would be grateful!

    I'm lovin this game! First the graphics are so HD which makes the gaming experience REALLY GOOD!! Second it's so fun to play this game I can even play it with my friends! Third, I am so into fantasy genres. And seeing as how they added a fantasy world in this game is the cherry on top of it's perfection!! It's the reason that made me buy this game! The fantasy world!! Aaaaahhhh!!!~☆

    I really enjoy the original game Life 1, and based off the reviews for this new Life 2, I was a bit apprehensive . I have to say that the earning of puzzle pieces, gives an incentive and feel of accomplishment when the game ends, rather then in the original game, if I won, there was no real feel of victory and felt anticlimactic. There is still non stop action in this new version , just like the original , however, the one MAJOR flaw and disappointment I have is they did away with ALL the “player vs player “ competitive games that were such a big and more importantly , FUN component in the original version. How and why they would take out those mini player on player games, I’ll never understand. Those were a major part of the game. Now it’s just spinning the spinner. Really shot themselves In the foot making what could have been a Awesome new game into a decent game. Although, I can’t say I like it more or less, it’s just a coin toss at this point. If they added the competition games to version 2, then that game would have everything I wanted from day 1 in the first game. I always said they should keep score on players to add incentive to want to keep playing, and the puzzle pieces do it. Hope they add the side games to the second version, and I’m a 40 year old female saying this and I love playing. Just sayin.

    THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is by far the best board game on the market. The reason I give the game a 4 star is because It feels like it's watered down and extremely short. I would really love to see a longer board. I'm excited for the new road maps. As you can tell the biggest issue I have is the game feels extreamly short. Also the next update can you guys add more customization. Can we please have a LEADERBOARD 🙏. Sorry I keep editing but can you add emotions so we can have some type of communication

  • Good game, but prefer original Aug 4, 2020

    By Jayson Rivest
    I bought the original The Game of Life from Marmalade Studios and really enjoyed that. It was pretty close to the classic board game experience, but with the convenience of being digital. Was looking for the option to play Online with Friends, but the only option was to be matched with other players via Facebook. I wanted to play with my family on the other side of the country, we currently do that with Marmalade’s Monopoly app. When I saw that this game offered that functionality, I was excited... until I downloaded and started to play it. It is advertised as a sequel to The Game of Life. I know that I shouldn’t have expected the same experience but I didn’t enjoy the new gamification of the action cards with the different attributes. The graphics also were a turn off for me as they seemed overly simplified and geared towards children. I recognize this is a game and therefore should appeal to children, but I liked the graphics from the original version better. Still bright and colorful but not in an elementary school way. I really wish that they would just add the Online with Friends (in a custom private room) function to the first game.

    Yo what the heck happen? I played 1 game offline pick and pass. It was smooth but extremely short. The I tried single player mode.. Holy hell kill me now..... who programmed this? 8 times log out to load in because it constantly locks up. You think you're going to get 25$ for short maps and bad game play... good luck.

    Game overall would be fun, if the lazy developers could fix the probability ratio; especially in single player mode, you'll never win against the bots. The game get monotonous, because the developers cant develop a game algoritm to save their lives. Spin the same # multiple times, get same category of tile, pick life path and never get to experience it. Very lazy game making. Dont waste your $, even if they paid you to play it. I usually dont leave reviews, but the simpleton level is🤦🤦🤦

  • Not Fun At All. Slow. And limited choices! Aug 23, 2020

    By Ken_zi21
    I love playing Life. It was my favorite board game growing up and I even like the Life app that they came out with. Similar to the board game but had a few cool things added. So I see the advertisement for Life 2 and I’m excited thinking its like the new board game. So I thought. No it’s just a hyped up 3D bore fest! It was a waste of $4 and I’d like a refund. The game is boring. The choices are limited when picking a career or house, etc. And it’s always the same options. Which was always a really exciting part of playing life was choosing from the cool different jobs and houses, etc. Also it is really short game time and so dramatic and extra for no reason. And I know it seems weird for a game to dramatic but if you’ve played it you would understand. I dont recommend anyone whom enjoys the board game or orignal app to buy this cause it was defiantly a waste of time and money.

    this game needs a ton of improvements before I could give it 5 stars. for instance, players should be able to change the name plate plus have the ability to designate gender of pegs, especially for marriage. developers should be more creative with the action cards & by that I mean action cards should never be repeated in the same game. I'm sure there's other improvements that could be made. right now I'm very close to deleting this game.

    The board is too short. In many of the options where you can choose which way you want to go (for example the family route), there are only about 7 or 8 spaces, so if you roll a 9 or 10, it makes the path obsolete. Additionally, more custom options and more job options! In the original, there were many more job options as well as home options. Additionally, unless you choose the investment path instead of the family path, you most likely won’t get a home, which doesn’t make sense. Overall disappointing, but there is lots of potential.

    This version is so much better than the original! Theres much more freedom in how you play, so you're not really 'required' to get married and have children to win. It's more about the experiences you gather, so I won by staying single, buying my own apartment and adopting a cat and dog while studying for a masters degree! It feels more satisfying, so I started playing making my own choices, instead of tactically deciding how I can get more stuff!

    Hi I love your guys games. I am like the king of monopoly. I love this game as well but I have a few suggestions about how to make the game better. I wish you can trade with people like money for hearts. Also you guys should make like crews where you can create and join on. And like each week is like a separate challenge. One week can see what crew can get the most hearts. The cap for the amount of crew members should be either 10 or 15. All your friends can join your crew. The last suggestion is that I wish you could add the computer in online with friends mode. You can do it in monopoly but not in this game. Also add more houses cars outfits and action cards. Thanks for considering my thoughts. I really a appreciate it. You guys are the best. Keep up the good work on making game of life 2 better.

    I absolutely love this game although I do still really love the classic game of life and life vacations but life 2 is much better the game teaches you about real life like taxes and jobs and other things but I do have a problem when I was playing the game I have noticed that the game board is long but for some reason the game goes by fast yes I do know that it’s something you can’t fix but I do recommend making the game board longer and adding more cars,outfits for the game ,and more maps I know that the game just came out but I still do recommend that but overall the game Quality is really good and the physics are to and overall overall I really do like it

    Its good fun but i am always last place its like the algorithm doesnt work properly as the same position of players is always first but otherwise good fun. Shane there isnt more you can do without having to keep paying since i already paid for the game that is rather dissapointing that everything else must be paid for after.

    I've been playing the game of life before the ages of technology. I love the new choices, like stay single or married, brilliant. My suggestions to you is this, in the original game we had twins, children gave retirement money. Each player gave a gift for one child. In the app game we had the option to have triplets/quads, please bring this back. In addition to the careers, I find very basic, it doesn't match the "2" I guess I was expecting more of a hierarchy of careers. Thk u

    Meh...I like some of the options they've added like adopting pets and the gender neutral character, the option not to get married, but there just doesn't seem to be as much variety or as many options as the first one. It just kind of feels extended and dragged out. The only thing you really work at is getting the achievements. Graphics are better of course but not really enough to grab me. Played it a couple of time to see if it got more interesting. Nope. Get #1 if you want to play.

  • Some microtransaction money grabs... Aug 16, 2020

    By herhhd hi jdhhdhhdjhdhhd
    The game is fine as it faithfully recreates a version of Life. Keep in mind that this version is fairly simplistic and lacks the elements of the older, more classic gameplay. That may or may not be a good thing. So, keep in mind that this is a $3.99 game, so lower your expectations... Graphics are nice enough, albeit repetitive. The music and sound effects are mediocre at best. Multiplayer didn’t connect well for me. Other games I have played generally connect quickly. Therefore, I’m blaming this game. Gameplay, as mentioned, is a simplified (but faithful) version of Life. It moves SLOWLY, however, even when placing it at 5X speed. The reason for this is the many transitions between play, which cannot be fast forward. There’s a surprising number of microtransactions for this game. Of course, they are for cosmetic items; however, the cost of $30 for a “season” is a bit steep. Other games that use a season framework generally charge $10 or less and give you much more. You can, of course, buy bundles for $5.99 which give you limited cosmetics. Worth the money? If you REALLY like these type of board games, sure. Otherwise you’ll likely unlock the achievements and not play it again.

    I really enjoy this game! But with the update I lost all of my collectibles... Also seeing a longer game option would be wonderful! I enjoy the shorter board too but having that variety would be a lot of fun. More house spots and more job spots. Even so more risk. Maybe adding in a lose your job space(s) just to make things a little more interesting.

    This game is not worth spending your money on. It constantly crashes in the middle of games which is quite infuriating. Games that are free can never crash. The fact that this company asks you for money is absurd for what you actually get. The Game can be fun when it works, but right now it sucks a lot.
