Week after week, the classic UNO game continues to be a best-seller on Xbox Live Arcade, but now it's time to open the curtains and welcome a new and strong contender. Are you ready for frenzy?!! Ready or not, UNO RUSH is now here. It's innovative, fast-paced, and pure mayhem… but in a good way!
The first thing you'll notice when you see a screenshot of UNO RUSH is that the cards are all facing up. When you're playing, not only will you see the cards in your hand, but you'll also see what the other players are holding. The main premise of the game is the same, to get rid of all your cards by discarding cards that match the color or number of the top card on the deck. As always, there are special cards to reverse the direction of play, skip another player's turn, give extra cards, etc. However, the main difference is the incredibly fast-paced gameplay. You don't get rid of one card at a time; you have to organize your hand as fast as you can so you can get rid of many cards at once and create chains. Talk about fast!
This game offers innovative gameplay, but it also brings a fresh new look to the series. It's vibrant and full of animations that tie it to the modern look of XBLA. The game supports LIVE Party Chat, LIVE Vision Camera, Avatars, and even the Scene It! Controller (Big Button Pad). Up to four players can play at once online or offline, as the game also offers full guest support, so that special someone sitting next to you doesn't have to wait until you're done playing.
