    I don't know what the professional reviewers were expecting from a Solitaire game. If you enjoy playing Solitaire, you'll love this game. If ou don't, you won't. The reason the publisher is charging $10 for this game is simple. Know of any other Solitaire games you can play on the 360?

    If you like solitaire, you'll find a LOT to like in Soltrio Solitaire. It's a very nicely crafted collection, and the online play works very well.

    I didn't think I'd care for this game, but it's surprisingly well done and easy to control. And it's addictive once you learn the games.

    Sorry. Worst purchase Ive made on XBLA so far. Not much replay value and some of the achievements are insanely hard. One of them requires you to beat a game of Solitare in under a minute. This basically means you have to spam buttons blindly hoping you have a clearable board that you can finish with nothing but luck. Gameplay is bland and the controls are not very well done.

Instructions for most unfamiliar games are HORRIBLE leaving you to learn a game entirely on your own, or in some cases, never learning them. Buy Pac Man Championship or Root Beer Tapper instead.

  1. For 800 Microsoft Points (or about $10), it’s a nice diversion when you need a change of pace. Just don’t expect a lot of bells and whistles, and you’ll have some fun if you play your cards right.
  2. Soltrio Solitaire is a solitaire game that costs $10. Yes, solitaire. You know, that game that comes free with every Windows PC ever made? The single-player card game that is so easy to obtain for free on the Internet that it might as well be falling out of the sky? Right. This is that, except it's on Xbox Live Arcade, and it's 10 bucks. Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture?
  3. There's no denying that, well, this is Solitaire. And while there are a lot of different variations on offer here, you need to really love these types of family games to get your money's worth out of Soltrio.
