I've owned an original Simon game since 1979. This new version pales in comparison. Here's a list of all the bad things about this new version.

1. The original Simon speeds up after completing sequences of 5, 9, and 13 signals. This new version stays at the same slow speed no matter how high you go.

2. The tones on the original Simon are musically harmonious. If you played them on a musical instrument, they actually formed a major chord similar to the notes of a bugle. On game 2, where you create your own pattern, you could actually play simple songs. The tones on the new version of Simon are simple beeps and boops and they're not harmonious.

3. The original Simon has a Last and a Longest button. The Last button plays back the last sequence you just completed. So you could see where you messed up. The Longest button plays back the longest sequence played from the time the power was turned on. The new version of Simon is missing these two buttons.

4. The original Simon has a skill level switch that allows you to set it for a game of 8, 14, 20, or 31 sequences. If you reach the goal set by the skill level, the game gives you a win signal. The new version of Simon has no skill level and there's no way to "win" the game. You just keep playing until you mess up. The game then plays a "victory" tune based on how far you went in the game. So in other words, the game plays a victory tune even when you lose. On the original Simon, if you lose, that's it. There is no "victory" tune at the end. I guess the makers of new Simon didn't want anyone to feel bad when they lost.

5. On the original Simon, you have to press down on each of the color panels to get them to operate. The new version has panels that you simply touch. That may seem like a good thing until you accidentally touch a panel by mistake and cause you to lose the game.

Now here's a list of all the good things about the new version of Simon.

Until this came out, the only Simon toys still available in stores were the tiny keychain versions, which I didn't care for. This new one is full-size, and boasts a number of improvements.

First and foremost, instead of having buttons that actually press down mechanically, the four colored things are now like mini touchscreens, meaning you put your finger on it and it registers as a press. They look really shiny and nice and work great.

Second, there are now three game modes. The first is the classic Simon everyone knows and loves, where you must repeat an ever increasing sequence. The second is like the first, only instead of the computer choosing the new color that gets added on, you add it yourself. While the temptation to make easy sequences (like the same button over and over) is too strong to make this fun for a single player, it really shines as a multiplayer game, where one player tries to challenge another as much as possible by making the sequence harder to remember. Finally, game three is a party mode, where players each select a color (or two, if there are two players) that only they press, and if they do not press it when they are supposed to, or press it when it is not their turn, they are eliminated.

Another new thing is a little lcd screen that shows the game mode selected, the high scores, the current round number, and little game over animations. While not essential, it is a welcome addition.

Finally, the sounds are loud, clear, and pleasant to the ear. Also of note is that the game uses three AA batteries, which are included.

In conclusion, this is a great return to form for Simon, and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I remember playing Simon when I was a little kid back in the early 90's. It was easily one of my favorite games to play, something about the simple colors and the sounds kept me mesmerized. I've gone to a few stores in the past trying to find the game again, even if it was an updated version, as long as it retained the original game play. Unfortunately all I ever came across was the Simon key chain, which just didn't do it for me.

After taking a glance at ThinkGeek's website, I saw they had Simon on their new items list. It looked quite a bit like the original, which instantly appealed to me. I decided to look at a few reviews on the web for it, and everything I read was positive. It looks like the original Simon, sounds like it, but improves upon it with some newer technology, like touch sensitivity instead of buttons which is very responsive and works very well. A small digital screen that displays some effects and the current number of times you've completed the pattern, which also keeps track of the high score. And a couple of extra game modes which are welcome editions. I didn't buy it on Amazon, because the Barne's and Noble right by my house just happened to have one left in stock, and I ran over there and bought it immediately for $24.99 instead of $31.99, the price of it on Amazon as I write this review.

It has three game modes you can choose from by pressing the button once or twice after turning on Simon. Upon turning Simon on by pressing the green action button, Simon lights up and makes some sounds, then it instantly goes to game mode one. If you let it sit for a few seconds, the game begins. This is the original Simon we all know and love. If you press the button a second time during the selection process, you go to game mode two.
