 Don't waste you money! SERIOUSLY!!!

I've never written a review on play, but i thought I should so you know what you are getting yourselves into!!!

This is not a great game! I was expecting it to be, but unfortunatly...... The graphics are terrible and it doesn't automatically show you what balls the other players have on the front and you read stupid bluffs that don't even tell you what they may or may not have on the back.
One thing that thought would make it better was the wireless play, me and three friends were hoping to play against each other and actually have to bluff our way through by linking up our DS's, however, only one person can join so it is the two that can play, and thats not much better than playing on your own! I really wouldn't reccomend this, It really is a waste of money, you will actually regret buying it as you will only play it 3 or four times and then be bored!!!

Waste of money, wireless gameplay is over within a couple of minutes.

You have to constantly skip the instructions.

Every game is the same choose one person to kick off, choose another person. Go to the duel pick off the balls then choose split or steal. Keep your money to buy a game worth playing more than once.

 A game of luck, intuition and outrageous bluff?

Big problem - a TV show that relies on psychology and bluffing simply does not work in a computer game. In the 1 player mode where you play with CPU opponents there is no sense that you are making informed decisions or outwitting your challengers - it's just a guessing game, and not a good one.

Far too much time is spent watching the 'loading graphics' screen and when the graphics appear... it's like someone has rubbed butter in your eyes. The instructions say that if the balls are unclear (which they always are), don't forget to touch the 'A' icon to enlarge the amounts. This makes the balls bigger but just as unclear. Actually that isn't true - there is a mistake in the instructions and it's the 'B' icon that you tap if you want big blurry balls.

The sound is unimpressive - perhaps this is why the game is fully subtitled. The gameplay lacks excitement and variety. Computer-generated Jasper explains the rules in full throughout every game so unless you keep skipping ahead you'll hear the same dialogue over and over. At the end, win or lose, you're back to the main menu and the prospect of doing it all again - or repackaging the game and asking for your money back.

To sum up - the gameplay, graphics and sound are poor, it is not exciting or addictive, you won't feel like you're on the show and you may like yourself a bit less if you buy it.
