I find the new format frustrating and empty. There isn't as much interaction between players in this one (others don't have to give you money when you get married, have children, etc.), except for the career spots and those detract from the game - they're pretty pointless and not true to the real world as we know it.
I have to agree with the previous reviewer who found the LIFE cards very annoying. There doesn't seem to be any hope for the underdog in this version; if you don't happen to pick a good salary, you won't win, no matter how many LIFE cards you pick up along the way.
I really wish that they had left the game the way it was! I think we'll go dig up the old one that my husband's parents have somewhere. That will be more fun!
Bottom Line: After wanting to own this game for a while, I wish I hadn't wasted my money. I'll just find an older used one. One word - disappointing.
Besides all that, the quality of the materials is lower, the board has to be set up every time, the hills don't stay put, and the spinner jams in the hands of little kids. Last (but not least) the little pink and blue people just won't stay in the car. They seem to leap to their deaths at every turn, perhaps jumping out of sheer embarassment at being associated with such a watered down imitation of a once fabulous game.
Next time I play I'm skipping college entirely, becoming an artist, buying the mobile home, and pulling down $100K. You know who's gonna come out on top! What wonderful lessons for life...

Definitely not as much fun as the original, but still very enjoyable! This game is a "more positive" version of the original, as my boyfriend and I have decided. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Jaclyn
The worst edition ever! The game is not the same from childhood. Apparently kids don't have to learn any life lessons because everything will be handed to them with this gamePublished 14 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is just as much fun as you remember, but it really doeasn't do anything to promote any kind of non-traditional 1950's conception of family. Read morePublished 18 days ago by M. 9 Fingers
