The Game of LIFE is a translation of Parker Brothers popular board game that has players deciding on such issues as marriage, owning homes, going to college, purchasing insurance, earning a salary, and even starting a family. Each player (up to six can play at once) is given $10,000 to start, with the goal being to earn as much money for "retirement" as possible.

You'll first have to choose between college or starting a career, and subsequent turns involve spinning a wheel, moving your car token along the board, following directions on the space and then making decisions to maximize your earnings. The PC version offers a 3D game board and your choice of car tokens and characters to play as.

The game also features a unique "car cam" perspective, allowing you to see through your token's windshield, and an announcer to keep things moving along. Other enhancements include a soundtrack reflecting the game's different time periods, hundreds of board animations and both analog controller and memory card support.
