    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]

    The game has a good tutorial for complete beginners. There are several modes such as Hollywood and Oklahoma but they are rarely worth playing as most Live users stick to Classic Gin Rummy or the Speed version. Overall the presentation matches the level it should be for a card game - nothing fancy. Expand
