    The best XBLA game yet, even if the music does suck.

    First off, this game is great. The tutorial is any easy step into the game and the buttons and configuring is very easy-to-use and understandable. Gameplay (9) - Extremely good. Strategic. Changes ...

    Carcassonne is a thoroughly enjoyable rendition of a classic German board game.

    For: Simple rules; tense games; deep strategy; 6 player online; 4 player local Against: Annoying music; random colour assignment Carcassone is best described as a cross between Dominos and Risk. T...

    A solid addition to the Arcade, Carcassonne is a great rendition of a great board game.

    With fellow German Board game Catan, Carcassonne is another head-scratcher revamped and enhanced for Xbox Live Arcade. Unlike Catan, Carcassonne is easier to get into, and games rarely last longer tha...

    This is a game that’s certainly worth your 800 Microsoft Points.

    Following the trend of electronic translations of board games comes Carcassonne, a game that’s similar to the other Arcade board game title, Catan. Although it’s a more simple strategy game, Carcasson...

    Nice, tile based game with enough enough ease to jump in and play and enough nuance to keep you coming back.

    Carcassonne is a nice, tile based game with enough enough ease to jump in and play and enough nuance to keep you coming back. The 3 levels of AI difficulty are a very good way to hone your skills b...

    Great Translation of a Great Board Game

    Rated on August 27, 2007 by crazychickens

    First of all I would like to say it was an amazing surprise that Carcassonne is now on the 360. I have always loved board game and usually only get to play when people come over. Truth is I don't kn...

    Help me, I can't stop playing this game.

    Rated on September 06, 2008 by Lokar

    Carcassone was tough to get the hang of, but once I paid attention to the rules, the games kept adding up at lightning speed. It's so much fun to play, you'll find yourself scurrying to finish castles...

    Easier to play than a real board game.

    Rated on September 10, 2008 by FelisLeo1980

    Carcassonne in Xbox Live Arcade is a great way to bring a classic board game to digital medium. Goal in Carcassonne is to build roads, castles and other real estate by using different puzzle pieces...

    I purchased this game with my last remaining 800 points and I was not sorry I did.

    Rated on September 18, 2007 by nobeaner

    II love strategy games. But, as I said in some of my other reviews, I am not the best at them. Fortunately for me Carcassonne is simple to understand and a great game to play. The design is simpl...
