uDraw Pictionary feels like the game the uDraw tablet was made for. Although sketching on the tablet while looking at the screen is still an awkward feeling at first, you will get used to it as you play -- and it's a whole lot easier than trying to draw by moving thumbsticks on controllers. And while the ability to use different colored paints and textures certainly isn't necessary for a game of Pictionary, it sure does add a lot of fun to the experience. The "Mania" mode is a blast, too. The crazy added rules make things really difficult, but in a very entertaining way. uDraw Pictionary, frankly, is more about laughing at way-wrong guesses as it is about sketching a perfect illustration of the clues. It's also very nice to see how much thought went into making the game work for cross-generational play. There aren't that many games that kids and adults can be able to play easily with one another, but this is one of them.
