I'm glad I did, and I ended up buying it. For a fraction of the cost of buying each game individually you get all the classic games for a low price.
Battleship, Sorry!, Sorry! Sliders, Scrabble, Boggle, Yahtzee, and Connect 4.
The setup is well done where all games are kept in an easy to access place. You can play 1-4 players locally or online. The only game I hadn't played as a kid was Sorry! Sliders and that game has become one of my favorites. My wife and I play a different game almost every night.
Now you might think you'd get bored of the simpler games like Battleship and Connect 4, but they've done a great job of adding different twists to each game that you just simply can't do with the normal board edition.
For instance in Connect 4 you can play "power chips" which randomly gives you a chip that will be a bomb and blow up other chips, or knock out a whole column, or freeze a column, etc. In battleship they added modes to shoot multiple times, add decoys, etc. In Yahtzee they add wild cards; Boggle they add modes that switch letters after you make a match, etc.
Every game has multiple modes and you can customize them all. The AI isn't even half bad if you're playing solo. All the games are very well done and I'm very impressed by this as an entire package. You can even earn trophies and awards to customize the way the room looks when you're playing.
Achievement lovers will also not be disappointed as this set offers 1400 points, and non are really that difficult especially if you like the game.
I highly recommend this set to anyone who is a fan of even just one or two of these games.

SOUND - Though the sound of dice and game pieces hitting the board are genuine enough, I don't imagine audio was ever a focus here. It simply serves its purpose. Mr. Potato Head doesn't have a lot to say other than the celebratory "WOOHOO!" or "YEAH!" and the music is very 80s.
VISUALS - Again, everything looks convincing enough when compared to the originals. This game isn't going to push your console to the limit, but naturally that isn't its intent. Each game offers unlockables for decorating your game room but after a few minutes of this you'll have seen all there is to see and move on.
CONTROLS - Other than a few hiccups when playing Sorry!, the controls work exactly as they should and are easy enough to figure out for anyone.
STORY - 7

On this game is a variety of Hasbro board games that can always be a ton of fun, even if you decide to play against the built-in AI.
There are a few alternate game modes and odd awards for winning, yet you can also sit down for a nice game of classic Scrabble if that's your thing.
There aren't that many bugs to note. Occasionally a die in Yahtzee might get into the corner and slide a bit, but nothing serious.
All-in-all, a great game that can save you a bunch of money over going out and buying all of the games included on this single little disk.

Good for a rental, but would get boring quickly.
