    You get what you pay for

    Ok, so Id love to tell you this is a great item but after 200 miles of driving and two controller pads later my kids still can play the game. The only reason I was willing to buy this was because it was a "Best Buy Deal of the Day" at $9.99. I thought what an amazing price! So we get home, set it up, and start to run the girls through the process of working it and the pen stops working. So I take it back the next day and exchange it for a new one only to have the control pad to not even power up. You can actually hear parts moving around in it. What a piece, I can see why they are selling so cheap. Best Buy is probably hoping at $10 that people are just going to throw them away, which is all about you can do. If it cant hold up to being delivered to Best Buy what makes them think it will hold up to a kid?

    Fantastic for artist and gamer

    I played this on Wii with the family and loved it last year, but the improvements were worth picking it up on X360. It is much sleeker and easier to use. It is now wireless without plugging in a controller, the touch sensitive part is better, you can use pinch-and-stretch like a tablet, and since you don't have to attach to the controller you can use it right or left handed. Pictionary game is the best, and great for family gaming night. Marvel game is fun if you are a comic fan and like creating your own adventure. Get's me ready for Avenger's movie!

    It is an okay tablet to pass the time when the kids are tired of shooting at zombies and want to go back to playing simpler games. They have the one for the Wii and have not seen them get much use out of it, but once in a while, it would get pulled out to play for a couple of hours. This Xbox tablet was purchased for $5, but I would not have paid more for it knowing how little use they get out of the one for the Wii. Maybe if there were a ton of games and the tablet was not so clunky, and at times, unresponsive, it would be a more valuable addition. I think that for those who want their kids to doodle, color, (or have family members who like to get creative without the waste of paper and mess of acrylic paint) this is a good pass-the-time addition.

    Don't expect hours of intriguing game play

    Our house is usually the go-to house on the weekends for our friends. We'd recently became tired of Rock Band nights, and this came up for sale for a cheap price. It comes with the instant artist game, and we also picked up Pictionary for an additional $10. I had read the reviews, so I sort of knew what to expect, so I wasn't exactly let down. We spent one night playing it for a couple of hours and that was the last time it was used. For under a $20 investment, it's was worth giving it a shot. Just don't expect hours and hours of in-depth game play.

    Great product that unfortunately killed THQ

    THQ or Toy Headquarters is a former game publisher probably best known for the Red Faction and Saints Row series. They endeavored to do more and gambled more than they should have. uDraw was a neat idea in a time of big peripherals. As for an art game, my then 4 year old daughter really enjoyed it (and still does). We got it on the cheap when they were liquidating stock so it is harder to find. There were several games made that take advantage of the peripheral. If you are interested in something creative and interesting, look no further!

    Nice concept

    My daughter loves art, so I thought I would buy her this to encourage her to continue drawing. It's is a very cool concept, love the colors, etc. but the pad is not as responsive, it is difficult to follow. It's hard to finish a drawing too. Haven't played much with it yet, but I can see kids, or even adults, getting somewhat frustrated when trying to draw something. We love technology, and overall we like the udraw, it has a lot of potential. Perhaps they will improve it in the next version.

    Not exactly accurate

    Know what you're getting and who you're getting it for. If you're buying this for a small child, know that the mechanic of drawing on black slate while looking at a tv will be a challenge. The mechanic of slightly pressing on the tablet to know where your "pencil" is on the screen is a bit tricky too. Older kids (9+) may find a bit of fun out of this, but without the support of more tablet compatible games, this will probably be a dust collector as is at my house since bought christmas 2012

    Disappointing

    The idea behind this tool seems great, and with THQ's unfortunate demise, it's cheap enough to try out. Unfortunately, the execution was very disappointing. The accuracy of the touch pad was poor. The touch pad itself was too small. The connecting wire for the stylus was just short enough to make using it awkward. All-in-all, we tried it a couple of times, were disappointed, and now it sits on a shelf. (On the up-side, you can use it as an emergency extra controller.)

    Great concept Not to user friendly

    This would be a fantastic product if it weren't for the problems we have had actually getting it to work properly. The stylus and pad are very difficult to coordinate. It is hard for us to draw or write smoothly and navigation is difficult. Could be that ours is not set up correctly. Our child seems to enjoy it and has an easier time with it than us. I'd still recommend this product.

    Interesting, fun device. Not a breakthrough item.

    My daughter played with this for hours when we fist got it, she still enjoys playing it from time to time. The tutorial is lively and simple, excellent for youngsters looking for a way to enjoy console gaming without bulky button filled controllers or the typical confines and frustrations of action packed play. I wish there were a larger selection of software for the Xbox, like there is for the Wii. Certainly a different way to Xbox.

    Bought this for my handicapped son for Christmas. My husband tried to set it up since he is the electronics person in the family. He has hooked up many devices to our TV's but he got very frustrated trying to get the UDraw to work. Eventually, he scratched the DVD somehow. So we never go to try it. We don't live close to a Best Buy store any longer and not worth mailing back. Now I see it is only $5.

    I bought this for my kids for Christmas because my kids love to draw, well it was a great deal for $10.59 , glad i didnt pay the original $30 for it because the kids have only touched it once, they got bored with it and have not seen them with it any more. I guess its better for smaller ones , my boys are 7 and 11 and could care less about it .

    Fun game for those looking for something different

    UDraw is a great game when you are looking for something different to play. No role playing, or fighting. We especially enjoy the paint maze section of the game. We haven't tried out all of the parts, but we are having fun, nonetheless.

    It is what it says it is...an art studio! As that, its great. It has enough options to spark children's interest for awhile. We like to make up games to play on it (ex-Draw Something). Fun for the whole family, or a party, if you get creative. (:

    my 6yr old can control this drawing program just fine, but my 4yr old gets frustrated at it. I tried it and i can't get the hang of the motions... i guess i'm too used to using a mouse and keyboard!

    We were very excited about playing Pictionary using this pad on Christmas. It was a huge dissapointment because the pad just didn't respond to the stylus and it was impossible to draw.

    My kids didn't even play it for one day. Tried for a couple hours and were done. My husband and I both played, and it is not entertaining.
