Paper Games is a little collection of four different classic games: Capture (otherwise called Dots), Pipe Layer, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Hangman.
If the game had an option to change the size of the grid for Capture and Pipe Layer, the game would be a whole lot better. Also, if you could play the first three games against a computer, that would increase the lasting value greatly. Finally, the game needs a better saving system.
Since you can find better versions of each game in the Marketplace, this collection of multiple games ranks pretty low. Capture and Pipe Layer need an option to change the size of the grid, otherwise the game is always the same. Tic-Tac-Toe is normal and works fine but it, Capture, and Pipe Layer could all use a computer AI opponent to play against. Hangman is pretty good since you can create your own words or have the computer generate a word for you, and you can also choose your difficulty. Overall, since there are better versions of these games in the marketplace, the gameplay gets a low score.
The visual design is good, but there arenâ€™t any sounds in the game at all. And while the load speeds and resuming speeds are great, thereâ€™s no way to save your current game, meaning if you close out of the game and re-launch it from the Xbox Live hub, you will loose your last game.
Lasting Value: 2/5
If there was an option to play against the computer on all four of the games, then the lasting value would be a lot higher. Right now, the only game that lets you play against a computer is Hangman. Therefore, the lasting value depends completely on whether or not you have someone else to play the game with. And since there arenâ€™t any options to change the grid size of the first two games, playing the game with a friend can still get boring quickly.
