  1. There are a few different modes available, as there are in all of the Family Game Night titles, but none are really all that inventive or interesting past the ability to play more traditional modes.
  2. Boggle is really fun and addictive to play if you’re into word puzzles. If not, maybe spending $10 on it is not going to be your best purchase since it has nothing of an exciting game. The multiplayer component does add something but it’s certainly the least appealing game of all six titles currently available. Peggy Hill would sure buy it…that’s if Hank lets her.

    If you loved playing Boggle before, this new version for Xbox Live Arcade will likely be to your liking.
  4. Boggle's speedy rounds [are] perfect for quick doses of multiplayer. [June 2009, p.75]

    If you like the board game you'll probably be pleased with how Electronic Arts has presented it here, and the ability to play online is great.
  6. Really the game's major downfall is the clunky controls which make navigating the grid an exercise in frustration and all but cripples the fast-paced gameplay of the board game.

    I cannot recommend anything with the name Hasbro. I will never buy anything Hasbro and very weary about buying anything EA. EA canceled the online support for this game which is the only reason I bought it. So I have many of these hasbro games, battleship, yahtzee and others that cost me 800 points and are now utterly worthless, Id give this - rating if I could. DO NOT BUY Expand
