  1. While it may not be as deep as the latest RPG, or as intense as the latest action game, Solitaire is like Tetris: a timeless classic that anyone and everyone can enjoy. When you put this many different versions in such a compact package, it’s an easy recommendation.

    It needs a bit of a boost in the tutorial area, but if you can figure out some of the rules on your own, you've got several dozen games to try and enjoy, many of which will be completely new to you.
  3. Scratch your head in tragi-comic woe as you try to decipher the game's cryptic instructions! [Mar 2008, p.71]

    Just a big collection of solitaire games for the DS. Includes all the most popular games as well as some very good ones that are less well Just a big collection of solitaire games for the DS. Includes all the most popular games as well as some very good ones that are less well known. The between-game interface takes a little getting used to, but it works. The rules of some games (e.g., Aces Up and Pyramid) have been modified; they're not all standard. But from what I've seen so far, the changes are all for the better. Aces Up is darned near impossible to win normally, but with the special five-card reserve in this DS game, it's winnable. The graphics are adequate but nothing special. The music is mostly annoying to me, so I've had to turn the volume down or off. The game does keep track of your win-loss record, but it doesn't have many bells and whistles beyond that. An inexpensive PC solitaire game typically has many more features. Some reviewers complain about the cryptic rules. I don't get that. It's a little annoying to have to tap two or three times to get to the rules, but they're clear and complete as far as I can tell. Expand
