Review by The CKYskater

"Oh, such a frustrating game you are, Minesweeper."

Minesweeper comes with Microsoft Windows. So if you have Microsoft Windows, then you have this game. To play this game, go to Start, then Programs, then Accessories, then Games, and then click on Minesweeper.

Gameplay: 5/10
The gameplay in this game is you try to click as many boxes as you can without hitting a mine. Most of the boxes have a mine in them and when you hit it (which happens very often), you get really mad. This happens every time I play the game. I hit a few lucky squares without hitting a mine and then I hit one and the games over.

Story: N/A
No story in this game folks...

Controls: 10/10
The controls are very good. All you do is click on squares, so I don't see how this section wouldn't get a ten. It's just a game where you click and nothing else No possible way for there to be bad control.

Graphics: 5/10
There isn't much of any graphics in this game, but what there is, it isn't horrible. But the fact that there isn't really much to see and the graphics are very simple, this section gets a five.

Sound: N/A
There is not any sound in this game. No music, no sound effects, not one single noise at all. At least on my computer...

Difficulty: 10/10
This game is very difficult. The thing that makes it so difficult is that you always hit mines and you get a game over. It gets very frustrating and ends up being no fun.

Replay Value: 6/10

Whenever you want, you can just go on your computer, open Minesweeper and play a quick game. It's fun to play at times, but you will get angered by hitting mines that you will want to stop playing.

Rent and/or Buy: Uh...
You don't need to do either. If you have Microsoft Windows, then you have this game. If you don't, then I guess you don't have it, but I am not sure of this. I'm not completely sure, but I think all versions of Microsoft Windows come with this game.

Overall (Not an average!!): 5/10
I don't hate this game, it's just really, really frustrating. It's just not fun to play for long periods of time. It's only fun to play for about five minutes at a time. It's just too damn frustrating!

The Final Results:
Gameplay: 5/10
Story: N/A
Controls: 10/10
Graphics: 5/10
Sound: N/A
Difficulty: 10/10
Replay Value: 7/10
Rent and/or Buy: Uh…
Overall (Not an average!!): 5/10
