The Game of Life 2 Reviews

We really enjoyed this app along with our girlfriend and her little brother. However, Im a bit skeptical if other kids will like this app because our GFs little brother got bored 3 minutes in and decided to play fortnite instead. It made us upset that a kid didnt want to play a kids game since you would think they would Enjoy it the most. Oh well…. We guess we just dont know what kids like anymore.

This game has it all! The music is awesome and with new jobs, its like youre living a brand life! Happiness, wealth, knowledge, it is up to you! Great fun for everyone, just like the first!

We love all the Life bundle games.

We’ve missed this game. Thank you for making it great.

This game is super awesome even though there are some app purchases you should totally buy it. You can finish puzzles and 79 purchases are really cool like new skins like this super cool princess outfits!

We played this game with our friend and had so much time if your looking for a fun game family game this is it. It cost money but its so worth it Im not a bot we actually played this and had so much fun so hope you do to if you want to and if you can bye.

Does this game even have sound we see that the sound is on but there is no sound what do we do.

Best game ever we totally recommend it so play it a warning costs 3 dollars.

Some day Ill learn to listen to learn not to listen!

We love this game. You did such a great job. There are no problems and we are enjoying playing it. The only thing we would change is the ability to name the other players when you are playing pass and play. But we are enjoying it a lot.

Hi we love your guys games. We are like the king of monopoly. We love this game as well but we have a few suggestions about how to make the game better. We wish you can trade with people like money for hearts. Also you guys should make like crews where you can create and join on. And like each week is like a separate challenge. One week can see what crew can get the most hearts. The cap for the amount of crew members should be either 10 or 15. All your friends can join your crew. The last suggestion is that we wish you could add the computer in online with friends mode. You can do it in monopoly but not in this game. Also add more houses cars outfits and action cards. Thanks for considering our thoughts. We really a appreciate it. You guys are the best. Keep up the good work on making game of life 2 better.

We love playing Life (1) with family!! So, just having Game of Life 2 on our phone is the best thing ever!!!!

We love the game but one time a paid for something and the next time we played it our payment was GONE!!!! Please fix the problem!

This game is really fun to play.

Wish for game of life 3 and thats it.

We love the game of life so much.

Very cool can wait to unlock more levels Only thing … Please can we have a chat or emoji reaction area like life vacations. (Life vacations by the way is so slow) Please.

This game is super fun to play as you get to choose more paths & have more things that can happen. This game can keep you, your kids/parents/family entertained for hours. Keep up the good work Marmalade Game Studio Limited!

Very real modern twist on a classic.

This is the best game we’ve ever played well one of the best good job.

Ok so Life has always been our fav board but the game of life 2 beats them all we just love it lol in their virtual game you could always be a girl or boy and marry either as well ( even the wedding videos change according to ur choice) but u had to get married and almost always had kids. Now theyve have really created the game of life lol it lets you be pink purple or blue also lets u choose pets or kids and u can stay single the whole game if u want lol like most of all the computers randomize too with all the options and names. Anyways we like the game and u should play it too lol.

This game has amazing animation. The choices are expanded. It is perfect! . But when is each update? We need to know. Thanks.

This a good game , very different than the other game. We do like the some of the jobs and that there no little games like in the first the games where replace our the fate we like the fate but there should more of a of like bad stuff. We like the game tho.

Love this game so much. Its so exciting and fun. Definitely a 5 stars!!

We really like this game and think its an improvement over the first life game because it doesnt tell you to do real life things like tell another player your favorite book (which, when youre playing by yourself, was irrelevant and impossible). We also find the transgender option interesting (even though Im not). The only problem we have is that the game tells you that you have to pay back loans before the end of the game or you will get points taken away (and you do)… But we cant find any way to actually pay them back, even if we do have the money. We would think that they would have put in a button (like the mortgage button in monopoly) where you can take or pay back loans at will. If anyone can tell us how, we would be grateful!

We love this game sooooo much. The only thing is…. We need more action card choices because we are tired of the same thing every time. Some action cards are the fired action card or great uncle Maxs birthday or lawsuit against the other player or just some more choices please. Another thing is could you please give us more jobs to choose from bc Im tired of only choosing from App developer, chef, YouTuber, Popstar, and the others. You could give us a . Just give us some more choices for a job. And more avatars. It would be nice to have more houses to choose from,instead of the same thing every time. And please cut down on the price . Overall we love this game. But please give us more choices. Thank you.

We like the game but, it consistently freezes and then we have to exit the game. We enjoy playing it with our sibling especially in this time with quarantine/lock down being very prevalent.

We normally dont write reviews, but we just wanted to say that this is a pretty fun reimagining of the classic board game. We’ve already played this more than we care to admit. There are some personal issues, thought. First of all, the games are often way too short. On one hand, shorter games is good, since we can get in multiple quick rounds throughout our day. On the flip-side, however, shorter games means that we often get to the end of the game with no additional family members (besides a spouse) and no houses, since it is far too easy to simply just roll past those events so they never come up. We find myself wishing these events were much easier to trigger, especially because each of these adds to the Attributes you accumulate that affect your total score at the end of the game. Speaking of additional family members, we were disappointed that when we finally got a game where we could get a pet, the game automatically chose a cat for us. We dont mind cats, but we are much more of a dog person. The game touts itself as being all about choice, yet seems all too happy to randomly chose which pet you get with no player input. When we played another game, the A. We got a dog and we felt a little cheated. Yep. We were jealous of a computer, if you can believe it. In real life (which this game is meant to emulate!), choosing a pet is such a personal thing, that we would have liked to have been able to chose our own pet rather than have the game chose it for us. You are able to chose your own spouse, why not be able to chose your own pet?? At the end of the day, however, these are really just nitpicks and our own personal issues that probably dont really matter or affect much of anything else. Overall, its still a pretty fun little game, even just playing against the A.I. : )

Although we love the game we have noticed that the pay may have a glitch when playing the single user against the cpu. For example: when selecting a career, the other choice is indeed chosen. When selecting college the second time the cpu will select a lower salary, and then given 200K salary. But overall, we enjoy playing.

We love the game of life 2, but we think it can be better. We think you should be able to pay taxes whenever. Like we lose games because we didnt repay our taxes. We should be able to pay taxes whenever. But overall pretty good game.

This is definitely worth the price really cool concept on how they did it!

We need emojis! And more lands. Already done collecting everything so it has become a bit boring.

We bought this game for our family and we to play, and we would recommend it! The only thing we dont like about it is you can only buy a house if you land on the house squares. We like in the real game how you have to purchase a home every time. Just our personal preference tho, go ahead and buy the game!

We bought this game about a month ago to play with our family and while we had a ton of fun with it initially, lately its been impossible to finish a match. Weve had errors where one player will buy a house and the options overlay on another players screen making it impossible to continue. We had another situation occur multiple times where one player will wind up with multiple marriage marriage partners bugging the vehicle and causing the game to freeze for everyone. Honestly Im not sure why these started. It worked fine for a few weeks and then, all of this. Im not sure how possible itd be to implement but allowing someone to rejoin after dropping out or reconnecting could potentially fix the overlay issues.

We like the game but at the end when you sell your house it says you can pick a different offer if you dont like the first one but it did not give us an option to change!!!

We really like this game, its fun and keeps us entertained with all the new things to do, plus the purple peg option is really cool! But, there are NOT enough jobs whatsoever. Im always stuck between the same two for both going to college once and then getting the masters degree. Wheres the job diversity of the original? It makes it feel very repetitive when you can only pick between the same two jobs every single game.

Its a great game, but the biggest flaw is there is no timer for the spinner. People can wait and wait and wait and you just have to sit and wait for them to spin. A timer is for sure needed. Also like in monopoly, add comments we think that would be fun.

Great app is lacking in baby spaces and we feel overall the game needs to be longer.

Wish you could add computers when you play along with a friend.

We always enjoyed playing the game of life games. But we do have two problems with it, one the cost of having expansion packs (fairytale) is kinda ridiculous considering we bought the game from the start. If there was a way we could earn points from wining games to unlock these things that would be great. Second it would be cool if there was a timer when your playing online. Some players take there sweet time if there was a countdown we can avoid making the game longer then it has to be.

The game is fine as it faithfully recreates a version of Life. Keep in mind that this version is fairly simplistic and lacks the elements of the older, more classic gameplay. That may or may not be a good thing. So, keep in mind that this is a $3.99 game, so lower your expectations… Graphics are nice enough, albeit repetitive. The music and sound effects are mediocre at best. Multiplayer didnt connect well for us. Other games we have played generally connect quickly. Therefore, Im blaming this game. Gameplay, as mentioned, is a simplified (but faithful) version of Life. It moves SLOWLY, however, even when placing it at 5X speed. The reason for this is the many transitions between play, which cannot be fast forward. Theres a surprising number of microtransactions for this game. Of course, they are for cosmetic items; however, the cost of $30 for a season is a bit steep. Other games that use a season framework generally charge $10 or less and give you much more. You can, of course, buy bundles for $5.99 which give you limited cosmetics. Worth the money? If you REALLY like these type of board games, sure. Otherwise youll likely unlock the achievements and not play it again.

We like the app but it keeps freezing in the middle of the games we start to play. Need to please fix this problem. We would understand if it was a free game but we paid money and this game shouldnt be doing this everytime we play it.

Great game but at times the game gets stuck. Also they favor the computer to win.

Board seems like it should be longer and the various paths should be longer than 10 spaces. Should be more opportunities to add to your family as we rarely land on a baby space.

We really enjoy the original game Life 1, and based off the reviews for this new Life 2, we were a bit apprehensive . We have to say that the earning of puzzle pieces, gives an incentive and feel of accomplishment when the game ends, rather then in the original game, if we won, there was no real feel of victory and felt anticlimactic. There is still non stop action in this new version , just like the original , however, the one MAJOR flaw and disappointment we have is they did away with ALL the player vs player competitive games that were such a big and more importantly , FUN component in the original version. How and why they would take out those mini player on player games, Ill never understand. Those were a major part of the game. Now its just spinning the spinner. Really shot themselves In the foot making what could have been a Awesome new game into a decent game. Although, we cant say we like it more or less, its just a coin toss at this point. If they added the competition games to version 2, then that game would have everything we wanted from day 1 in the first game. We always said they should keep score on players to add incentive to want to keep playing, and the puzzle pieces do it. Hope they add the side games to the second version, and Im a 40 year old female saying this and we love playing. Just sayin.
