    To be frank the game is just very lacking and very bland. With all the great summer titles hitting high numbers it's a safe bet that this one will make the scratch list in the next few months.
  2. The card game may be old, but it’s far from obsolete, providing a perfect counter from the faster-paced, high-concentrate titles.
  3. It's a solid adaptation of a fun card game, and at 400 Microsoft Points it's priced just right.

    More could have been done with creating a cool look and adding some incentives for playing. Still, Gin Rummy can get addictive. There's just not a whole heck of a lot here.
  5. Simple, straightforward, no thrills gin rummy.
  6. For anyone who enjoys tossing cards, this game is a relaxing experience, and worth chilling out to. [Sept 2008, p.79]
  7. Another low-grade offering. [Issue#34, p.117]
