The game play is wrong
The game is OK, and just like Scrabble for most features, however if you play against the computer at an advanced level, the game play goes awry. Playing Scrabble against an advanced player means they know how to score more points and have a better knowledge of words to use. Unfortunately, this game changes the letters distribution. The computer gets most of the high value tiles, and quite often you are left with a tray of 1 point letters. This is so frustrating.
Having now played 10 to 15 games at advanced level i have never got the Z and the Q in the same game, and mostly if i get a 10 point letter i never get an 8 point letter. So from consistently winning at the level down, winning at advanced level is a rarity because of the letter distribution and my points total has decreased from 350 points per game to 250 to 300. The letter distribution should be random at all levels.
Another update. Save your money and don't bother with this app. Only works intermittently, EA ignore customer request for assistance. Probably the worst app ever.
Hasn't worked for about the past month!
Not a bad app when I first got it but about a month ago it stopped working on mobile platforms (iPad etc). EA are aware of the problem and keep advising users to be patient and a fix will be available very soon. They seem to think that we should be happy because in the meantime we can continue to play against the computer!
I wrote this review a couple of years ago. Have to report that their customer "support" is no better.
Players can connect to the server occasionally, if you're lucky.
Reporting of faults go unacknowledged and unactioned.
Having said that, it's not a bad game when it works. Users just have to accept that you cannot always play when you want.
Has improved a bit lately - after a very period of no updates.
But as others have said tile distribution at advanced levels is suspect at best.
Also why does human player alway have to start in games against computer player(s).
