I "played" through one game of this (2 player, me vs AI), and will say right now, do not buy. Now that that is out of the way, here is why:

Graphics: The graphics are cute and colourful and the board does look a lot like the board game I remember playing as a kid. You can explore the board and find quite a few cute little click triggered animations which are slightly entertaining.

The resolution is terrible. For starters, the game is stuck in windowed mode and there's no way to change the resolution or even maximize the window to fit the screen. Which means on my monitor, I couldn't see all of the game window, thereby making the game impossible to play properly. All I could do was spin the spinner. The different cards I had to play against the AI player(s) were inaccessible, and using them can often tip a game in your favour.

Camera: The camera is terrible. It starts out with an overhead view of the spinner, then moves to a behind view when your token (car) starts moving. That would be OK, but it then twists and turns around the car whenever it moves around corners or stops. It's kind of motion sickness inducing, to be honest.

------

In a nutshell, if the resolution wasn't messed up, then the game might be worth buying if you have other people with you to play the party mode with (the store page says "single player", but there is a hot seat Party Mode in the game as well). Saying that, if you're going to get people to come over to play this game, then you'd be best off getting the actual board game. You'll have a lot more fun playing that than this version.

I've been on Steam since 2009 and have over 1100 games in my library. This is the third game I've actually requested a refund for in all this time. If that doesn't tell you how bad it is, I don't know what will. What makes it worse, is that this is a Popcap game. Their games are usually pretty good. It's a huge disappointment that they would make something this bad.

Don't buy this game. It's boring and unplayable. The video game version of Life I played when I was a kid was much much better than this.

This game is an insult to anyone who has played "The Game of Life" Not only is this not what it appears to be, but it ♥♥♥♥♥ in its face. This was not the game of life. Simply a mockery of it. Bad music bad graphics bad animations and gameplay that is unlike playing the board game.
Don't waste your money.
