Draw Four, Sucka Fool!

Do you remember those good 'ole family times when you'd be sitting around a table playing Uno? Yeah, me neither...but the Xbox 360 has a version of this classic card game that you can play via Xbox Live.

If you happen to run into Season on there prepare for a beat down!

There’s no doubt that those who do decide to invest the Microsoft Points for UNO will find that it’s a totally addicting, but strangely relaxing game.

The graphics are about as good as you can get for this game, but that elevator muzak will slowly drive you insane. Luckily to make up for this the game supports custom soundtracks. It also has full voice and video support so players have plenty of ways to smack talk, especially when you consider that the game isn’t exactly the most mentally taxing thus leaving plenty of brain power to come up with a witty cut down.

What I like about UNO is the way things can suddenly swing in and out of your favor. One minute you could be ready to lay your last card down, the next you could have just picked up six cards for a misjudged challenge. There is a thin line balancing good judgment, effective strategy and pure luck and that is what can make the game a lot of fun to play.
