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.

don't bother ordering this

fastjimmy, Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: You can try to order this highly rated version of Hoyle card games. You will, however, be sent Hoyle Card games 2009, as has just happened to me twice. It even has a sticker saying Hoyle Card games 2008, but the writing on the box clearly states "hoyle card games 2009 C 2008 Encore Software". The box, of course, matches the photo for hoyle card games 2009.

Wrong product shipped -

Julie M, Amazon
5 September 2010
  • Summary: I ordered the 2008 Old Version based on the reviews of bad changes for newer versions and reading that the 2008 version would work in Windows 7. I ordered a new computer for my 83 year old mother and knew she LOVED the Hoyle card games and wouldn't be happy with a new machine that didn't have her card games on them. Imagine our disappointment when we tried to install the games - and lo and behold - the disk was for Hoyle Card Games 2009 - not the one I ordered at all.

It did not work

David Beers, Amazon
4 September 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.

Hoyle Card Games

Charles Brown, Amazon
4 September 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.
