Place letters to create words that earn the most points.

If you enjoy playing the board game, then you will love playing Scrabble on your computer. It is easy to grasp the idea if you've never played the game before. This is basically a crossword puzzle with two people, but you don't have the clues to help you decide which words go in the blocks. When you begin the game, you are given a certain number of letter tiles. These tiles are used to create words. If you can't form words with the letters that you have, you can swap them for different ones.

The best part about playing this game is that you can play by yourself, against a computer or against someone else. There is a mode where you can play up to three people at a time. This is called the Hot Seat Challenge. There are also several game styles. When you play the computer, you can choose the level of difficulty. This might come as a benefit if you feel that you can't beat the computer. Special features allow you to keep track of your best words and your top scores. In order to become the best player, you can track your progress as you play each game. This information is automatically recorded so that you don't have to keep playing several games at a time in order to gain more experience. There are some things to keep in mind as you play the game. Avoid playing in full-screen mode because the outer edges can be blacked out. Music playing in the background is relaxing so that you can concentrate on the game.

Pros

  • Amazing graphics
  • Fun to play
  • Based on rules from the classic game

Cons

  • Not many hints
  • Music can get bothersome
