Great multiplayer arcade game that utilizes the webcam which seems to be overlooked by most developers creating games...

User Rating: 7.9 | Uno X360
Uno is a game that many of us remember playing whenever we were little kids growing up in the good old days before technology surpassed our obsessions with board games and other old fashioned fun. Carbonated Games has managed to sucessfully create Uno on the Xbox 360 via their Xbox Arcade services. The arcade game utilizes the Xbox 360 webcam which seems to be lacking uses for at the moment. While making your opponents draw four cards and dropping skips on them, you can rub it into your opponents as much as you want, so long as you don't break the contract you have signed with Microsoft. This makes the game more enjoyable than playing an invisible foe if this feature wasn't enabled. You get to learn your opponents much like in say Texas Hold'em and lay down cards based on their physical movements. However, the webcam can also be a downside because there are certain people on Xbox Live that abuse the rules and do rude gestures or things that aren't appropriate for people below the age of 18. If you ever encounter someone who is doing something rude you can always disable the camera feature and send a message to Microsoft to get them to ban the player. As for playing Uno, it is relatively simple. You mainly use either the D-pad/joystick and the A/B buttons to make moves. Overall the game is user friendly and simple to master. Once donwloaded you can either choose to play single player or go straight into multiplayer. The singleplayer bots are rather dull however, so your best bet is to go online and play real people that have much larger IQ's. In order to win you must reach a certain number of points much like you do in the real Uno card game. Overall this game is a must purchase on Xbox Live Arcade and it is worth every penny. If you own a webcam then it gives you more reasons to purchase this game.
