Attractive, but not as functional as the older version

Summary: I had an earlier version of this game which I enjoyed, but have lost the disk. I thought I'd try a newer version, but stayed with one a couple of years old as my PC is six years old or so and runs on Windows XP. Downloading the updates for it took over an hour, and then the game ran so painfully slowly; in stop-motion animation on this PC; that I gave up on it and loaded it on a newer, 4-year-old PC, on which I've played it for about a half hour.
Summary: Hoyle games 2008 is a little better then Hoyle games 2005 and a lot better then Hoyle games 2010. Slightly better logic in the 2008 version compared to the 2005, about as good as the 2010 version but the 2008 version has better graphics then the 2010 version. All the versions must have been written by a none player because the game logic stinks. For instance..
