I was very disappointed with this software. I already own the Hoyle Card Games (includes Bridge) and the Hoyle Bridge and Euchre. Both of these are much easier to play, and do not come with large accessory programs.

The Action menu does not allow Redeal, Rebid or Replay - once the hand is dealt, you are stuck with it. Also, even though Expert levels are selectible for the players, they frequently mis-bid causing an incorrect contract.

Don't waste you money.

Really pathetic play. For example, against 6NT the opener holds both AK of spades, does not double, and then robotically leads "4th down in your longest and strongest" so declarer ends up taking 7 instead of going down 1. The bidding is even worse. Can't count the number of times my idiotic (Hoyle computer) partner passed at the 1 or 2 level and then I make game or even slam.

This program took forever to install, downloaded a bunch of software before it could start the install, and gave no guarantee that the downloaded software was protected. Then the bridge was the same cheesy, stupid bidding and play as the cheap version! The bidding was pretty damn limited and did not always follow their own explanation of the bidding "rules"! I always thought bridge was a partnership game but I felt like my partner in this game was my enemy. This game is primitive and frustrating.

I hate them.

I have copies of Hoyle bridge games from the past and bought this program because it promised so much. But they are promises not kept. It is basically the same program that you can buy from Staples or Office Depot at their $10 kiosks. They throw in a deck of cards and a score sheet. It says it plays duplicate bridge but I couldn't find it. The help files are not compatible with Vista. I was unable to locate the advertised "hints" that are supposedly available. And try to get some information from their web site. Actually, try to find their web site. If you find their web site, try to contact them for support. It's a hassle, if not impossible. If you want the game, buy the cheaper edition. Same program. Same game. Buy your own cards and scoresheet.

I picked this game up on a whim while visiting LA for only 9.99. It did come with the cards and score pad. I'm sorry I did not try to order here. I would have read the reviews and would not buy it at any price. I will echo the other reviews. Bidding is ridiculous and play is almost as bad. Do not buy!

This box actually includes two bridge games. One is the standard Hoyle game, with the face creator and opponents like Harley the bear. It is very similar (if not exact) to the bridge game in the Hoyle Card Games package. This game does not provide hints.

The other game is MVP Bridge Deluxe, which is a very old shareware title written for Windows 3.1. The copyright is 1994-1998. This is the one with the advertised in-game hints. Unfortunately, the hints are not very helpful to someone who wants to learn how to bid. For example, it will prompt you to bid something like "1NT", but then it does not offer any information as to why that is the proper bid.

I suppose that if you already know how to play, this might be fun, but then again, you would be better off getting the Hoyle Card Games package, as it has many more games and is less expensive.

My first Hoyle Bridge CD was marketed in 2004. This one is dated 2006. In the two years passing, I expected a major upgrade in the animation, new player-character options, and some new character response/comments. I found very few improvements; not worth the cost of buying the newer model. Biggest improvement is the size of the players cards; they are bigger and easier to read. Also, throwing in a deck of playing cards was a bad sign; it was obviously an attempt to "add value" because the game was basically unchanged.
