    Fails at almost every level. The framerate shudders like a dying horse. [June 2004, p.86]

    Technically, ... Dead Man's Hand is a mess - which is a shame because this could have been a whole barrel of fun. [May 2004, p.107]

    This game has the realism i like and the multiplayer to boot so it is better than most but not the best.
