  1. The difficulty arises from the speed at which card arrangement this needs to be done. You’ll literally have seconds to anticipate what numeral/color will be thrown down before your turn and to arrange your cards in a logical order. This involves not only thinking very quickly, but also having pretty sharp hand dexterity since fast controller inputs are mandatory for said sorting purposes.
  2. It takes the basic framework and turns it upside down, ripping out the casual appeal and replacing it with fast-paced competitive gameplay. Though not for anyone who gets flustered under pressure, Uno Rush is a great addition to the Xbox Live Marketplace, and a must buy for fans of competitive action.
  3. If you think sorting seven cards in a matter of seconds is hard, well that’s because it is. The game most likely won’t appeal to UNO’s broad casual audience like before, but the game definitely will bring Microsoft’s hardcore crowd calling. For only 800 MS points, around 10 dollars, you’re getting a brand new take on the UNO franchise.
  4. Ultimately, the length of time you spend with Uno Rush is pretty dependent on how cool you are under pressure. If the thought of a fast-paced multiplayer card game where you have to keep one eye on your cards and the other eye on three other hands excites you, chances are you'll have a great time.

    Almost everything about Uno Rush is an upgrade from the original. The problem is, unless you can't put down the Uno and are craving more, Uno Rush's upgrades are probably not worth another $10.
  6. UNO Rush is a new take on the traditional UNO concept. Making the game faster and more intense will definitely appeal to some players who found the original too slow. A well rounded and well made title that is sure to be enjoyed by many, though the fast paced gameplay won't suit all players and all skill levels.
  7. UNO RUSH is a great LIVE Arcade title. While some may be initially discouraged by the title's frenetic pace and seemingly unforgiving controls, once you get the hang of things, you'll never want to let go!

    You're constantly on the brink of both success and failure. [June 2009, p.76]
  9. Overall, UNO Rush is a worthy sequel to UNO. Despite some of the changes taking a bit of time to get used to, give the title a chance and you’ll fall in love, just like you did before.
  10. UNO Rush is a very entertaining, and fast paced card game that gives a nice little twist to the first Uno. The game demands little thinking and relies more on the sleight of hand, but will undoubtedly gets you playing for hours.

    Uno Rush is a fun, frantic way to experience everyone’s favorite kitchen table card game. But the controls just don’t quite provide the flexibility needed to make the experience great.

    If you've got the original, keep your virtual wallet firmly shut. If you haven't, just buy the original Uno. [Issue#46, p.101]

    UNO is the popular card game where players can get rid same number or colour card than the person before them put down. When you have one cardUNO is the popular card game where players can get rid same number or colour card than the person before them put down. When you have one card left, you can say UNO by pressing X. If you spot someone who hasn't you can press Y to force them to take two cards from the deck. There are also command cards that can help you along the way, like skipping the next persons turn, reversing the direction of play or changing the colour of the discard pile.

    This next UNO game this brings some speed to the precedings as the name suggests, instead of just sitting there waiting for everyone to have their turn like in the old game. But you can't sit still after your turn. The game means you have to arrange your cards into order to try and discard them all in one go.

    With this a new Command Card has been brought in - the shuffle card. This will shuffle the next players neatly arranged cards and make him miss his go to boot.

    The graphics have had a overhaul and looks better than the old game but in a game like this that doesn't matter much. The game now supports 4 people playing locally on the same console, but some people may not be able to keep up with the game, not even yourself.

    Overall a good upgrade that is worth buying if you haven't got the first UNO game. Add a star if you don't. Be warned though download the trial first to make sure you can keep up with it! If you have UNO, your points are better spent elsewhere.
