Worst game ever

Greg, Amazon
2 January 2012
  • Summary: Although I have only played the bridge and spades aspects of this game I cannot imagine that the other games are any better than what I have already experienced. The computer players are some of the worst portions of the game because they seem to be incapable of bidding correctly or understand the team dynamic. They frequently undercut tricks and make poor card selections. It is almost as if there is no AI at all and the computer just chooses a card at random.

AI Sucks

Amazon Customer "L.Ard", Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I found a free bridge game on bing in which my partner MIGHT place an unnecessarily high bid (3-6 points) on the first bidding round (very bad for me as his/her/its/Its partner). So I searched a non-free bridge in hope of finding a more professionally-made AI, and I ended up with the Hoyle Card Games 2008 series. To my abysmal disappointment, in this series, my partner ALWAYS places an unnecessarily high bid on the first round. I will never buy a Hoyle game again.

Hoyle Card Games

Charles Brown, Amazon
27 November 2005
  • Summary: The Poker game seems fair but the Gin game is terrible. The opponents mock you when you loose. If you are leading you can count on your opponent making gin on the first deal, often before you can play a card. This is clearly coded into the game to frustrate you. No one could possibly get gin on the deal over and over again. The game is rigged.

It did not work

David Beers, Amazon
27 November 2005
  • Summary: It did not work in my PC or my Mac. I had a disc from years ago that was messing up and didn't work any longer in my PC and would not work in my new Mac-Pro. Thought it was the disc. Hoped by buying a new one it that said it would work in the Mac, but it didn't.
