Fascinating for a Few Hours, Then Mediocre and Too Easy.
on November 28, 2011
I bought this because I like gadgets and I like the original Simon game. There is some fascinating technology in this game that makes it fun for awhile, but the games are too easy. It is a pretty amazing thing that the 4 cubes can communicate.
The novelty wears off pretty fast though, because the games are not really challenging. There are no difficulty levels to choose from and the difficulty does not change as time goes on, during a game.
Another con is the fact that the game requires 8 AAA batteries. It comes with batteries, but if you end up playing the game a lot, you will be swapping batteries often.
In conclusion, this game is pretty fascinating at first, but loses appeal fast. A young kid may have a lot of fun with it, but older kids and adults will get bored, because it's generally too easy. Get a real Simon with adjustable difficulty levels and a faster pace as the game goes on. This game would be a good value at $10, but not $20.
