I bought this game mainly for Scrabble Jr. but was also slightly interested in Sorry!. I had no interest in Aggravation so I won't be reviewing that title. I am playing the game on a GBA.
The back of the box says that the game has been "supercharged." I find the opposite to be true; any sense of strategy has been sucked right out of it. The graphics also have not been "supercharged" in any way.
There are several flaws with this game. As you play, if you draw a Sorry! card (which means you can take a piece from your home-base, place it where an opponent's piece is, and send the opponent's piece back to THEIR home-base), you have NO CHOICE which opponent's piece to choose; the game automatically chooses the opponent's piece that's closest to your home-base. Now, for some people, especially younger players, this doesn't matter. But players with any ounce of strategy in their brains will be extremely frustrated with this lack of choice, since sometimes a player with a piece farther from your safe-zone is actually closer to winning. The instruction booklet states that you can use the L and R buttons to select which opponent's piece to choose, but these buttons do absolutely nothing on my GBA. This problem also occurs with the 11 card where switching pieces with an opponent is an option; you can choose YOUR piece, but not your opponent's piece.
There always must be four players. Thus, if you are playing by yourself, you are forced to play against three computer players.
Also, player one is forced to play as Blue at the TOP of the screen which means your home-base and safe-zones are upside down.Read more ›
SORRY: I would have paid the price of the game for Sorry alone, and since it plays a fairly good game, I consider the money well spent.
1) SORRY FLAWS: Very occasionally the game seems to become confused when an opponent's pawn is on your starting spot and you enter a pawn and send it back to its start. Subsequently a pawn of mine got sent back for no reason I could see.
2) SORRY LIMITATIONS:
A) As a previous reviewer noted, when activating the Sorry or "11" cards, the human player has no choice about which opponent's pawn to affect with these.
B) The computer players never take advantage of the special features of the "7" and "11" cards when these would benefit them. For example, with a "7" card you can either move one pawn 7 spaces or split the move between 2 pawns; the computer players never choose the latter option.
C) You cannot save a game.
AGGRAVATION: I'm new to this game and enjoyed it immensely, but be aware that the game may go haywire in mid-game and you may need to quit and begin the game afresh. I've written Destination Software about this but have heard nothing from them yet.Read more ›
-very little player interaction, the games almost
play themselves. Just press the "A" button
-no game enhancements, or cool animations. The graphics are
photo realistic, but have no animations.
-pathetic sound effects, consisting of *beeps* and *boops*
-annoying music, after a few minutes of the generic music
slamming your brain, you'll want to mute it.
-Scrabble Jr. doesn't understand the words your make, and the
CPU will make up bogus words that don't exist and reward itslef
-no game options. It would of been nice to adjust the rules of the games.
-boring gameplay, when a game has no fun
features other than pressing the "A" button it is
not even a game anymore.
-Sorry is the best game in the pack, but it plays at
a very slow pace
+photo realistic graphics
DSI, robbed gamers yet again with pathetic games that
look nice, but play terrible and without gameplay
enhancements of any sorts. If you want a good board
game, buy the old "monopoly" version for the
gameboy color, which is compatible with gameboy advance.
