3.5 stars. When I read that Megan had been to spades camp I was looking forward to trying it out. Well, I have to agree with others who have said that Megan needs to go back to school. I enjoy nil games and I think Megan is worse now than before. Sometimes I'm surprised, but not as often as I was hoping. There is a strategy in Megan's play, but too often she overbids. Many times I've just been completely bewildered to have a Megan bid of 2 or 3 and have not seen a card played that was worth considering. And then there are the flashing adds, the constant advertisement bar at the bottom. I love this game, but am frustrated with it at this point.
Play is FAR from realistic.
When you play on easy, your opponents bid WAY to many every time and they always go set, and you end up winning 500 to -1500. As you play on harder levels, it feels like the cards they deal you get crappier and crappier (and are not "random"), which makes it harder to out bid your opponent and even have a chance at winning. I don't understand why that is how the makers chose to make the game more difficult on the harder levels. In addition, your partner is dumber than a box of rocks. She will keep trumping and taking tricks even though you have already made your bid, which makes you go back on bag tricks every third hand. In summary, this game is not worth the time. If you want a more realistic Spades experience, keep looking elsewhere.
Enjoyable but has issues
Most things about this app are great. There are two issues: the hands dealt do not feel realistic, especially on Hard. I do not think the cards are random at all. The hands feel pre-computed to make the hard level seem hard.
The other issue, which is less annoying is Megan. Her bidding is terrible. She is always underbidding or overbidding and can not see, to play the way she bid. We typically go set at least twice before the game is over and we win.
Otherwise, great game.
