Summary: I have Windows 7 64. AVG detected a virus in the trial. The problem could be in the trial or the Amazon Game Installer. Anyway, I took the selected action. The software didn't work. Being that no one has mentioned this before, it's likely that AVG is being overzealous. But I don't take those kind of chances. Anyway, I couldn't try, so I didn't buy...
Summary: I love the game on my computer. Its addictive and bought the cell phone app for six bucks but it hasnt worked much at all and cant find a way to get my money back! I have a Galaxy Note and get the crash message before i get to play!
Summary: I would give this a zero star if there was such a thing!!! This game worked fine for about a day or two, then began exiting out without saving. It begins with the mine, where I win but then the game exits without saving. I can't get anywhere with it because it doesn't save my games. The sound also works fine for a poker tournament or two then it stops working.
Summary: If you are thinking of buying this game - DON'T - But Absolutely buy the Governor of Poker 2. There is no comparison. The developers really stepped up on GOP2. In GOP1 the other characters all seem generic and bland and impossible to read. In GOP2 the characters all have their own personalities and playing styles. You will soon learn who the big bluffers are and how to back them down.
Summary: Where do I start with Governor of Poker 2? I have spent many hours playing this game and have found it to be frustrating, monotonous, predictable and phoney. Playing thousands of hands of the same type of poker gets to be mind numbing, especially with the great amount of hands that you actually lose and spend your time getting nowhere in the game. They could have livened it up, also, with different towns playing different types of poker.
Summary: Ok, I played the demo, liked the mechanics, and graphics. I bought the game. The first thing I noticed was that 4 of the first six games of poker I played i started with the same hand, a 2 and a 3, not sure of the suit. Then, I played a game where everyone was eliminated but me and one other character. He had two pair SEVEN hands in a row. I'm not sure if this is an intended aspect of the game for "balance" or if it is just a result of faulty program.
Summary: From the sound of things, there *are* people who have gotten this game working in XP, and with more and more people moving to Vista/Win7 this issue may eventually be obsolete, but I would warn anyone with an XP system that you may be playing system roulette. I experienced the same bug as the other 1-star reviewer reported. The game crashes without loading on both of the WindowsXP systems I've installed it on.
