Therapeutic / by: Neonta
I was never really happy or unhappy with this game. However I only play card or any kind of games when I can't sleep. These are for times I need distractions from intellectual input of the day, that I just can not turn off. No, I'm not a Robot or a Computer. However I do sometimes feel that others think differently.
Hearts does seem less entertaining, but it serves my purpose. I like the game. I win very frequently and even if I didn't. Well it's just a game. However the computers should be more accommodating to the user. Hopefully your reviews will be read and applied.
Myself, I'll continue for the therapeutic value it provides.
Good but not great
I’m less convinced than the next reviewer that the 3 computer players gang up against the human. Instead, I think they’ve programmed vindictiveness (a strikingly human element) into the program: If you lay the queen of spades on a player, they will, in the next hand, hold off playing the queen of spades (if they can avoid getting stuck with it) until they can give it to you. My one complaint is that, even in the “Hard” mode, the game-play still seems far too easy, with the computer players making lots of mistakes. Unfortunately, that still doesn’t mean that I win regularly, but the game should be more of a challenge.
The Game is pretty good, but...
I like playing Hearts with this software, but I wish the software was set up for each of the computer players to play to win. Instead, the game is set up for the 3 computer players to team up to keep the 4th player from winning. After playing it a while, it's easy to see that the computer players help each other "Shoot the Moon" and also that each of them is willing to collect points toward the end of the game so that the player is kept from winning. I still enjoy playing it, but would prefer it if the deck wasn't stacked against me from the start.
