EA Scrabble Goes Live for N. American Facebookers. Scrabulous Killer? Hell No.

I’ve been toying with EA Scrabble on Facebook for the past week or so as a beta tester and I must say, I’m underwhelmed. It is slow, clunky, overly stuffed with graphics, and in many ways reminiscent of a Flash landing page that just slows everything down. Mattel launched Scrabble for Facebook over 3 months ago, and obviously it wasn’t a priority for EA (who licensed the games digital rights in North America) to put up a practical solution that would appear to be not just taxing on any old computer, but most definitely on a mobile device.

That said, I haven’t had much opportunity to play against anyone *I know* so if you’re interested, hit me up on facebook and i’ll invite you into a game!

Until then, I maintain that the simple, straightforward and more Scrabble-like interface of Scrabulous is superior. And I’ll keep playing my current standby, the Boggle-like game Scramble.
