The ads were ok but they came up randomly and I always had to wait for them to load to go back out of them. I really like it though. It's addictive and fun to play. I like how you can decide how hard the CPU players are. It's overall a pretty good game.
This particular version of Hearts puts entirely TOO much emphasis on making SURE that YOU will get the Queen MOST of the time to the point where it's really not very realistic. For the most part, you can pretty much count on losing. You can tell from the ridiculously high or middle-of-the-road hands that you're dealt more than often enough. UPDATE: Come on AI, if this AI engine is the one that companies in other countries use to perform serious research, then we're in serious trouble. Worst AI I've seen.
Great implementation! Like others, I got frustrated with the cards and play. I can beat the Spades game 80% of the time at some of the toughest levels, not this one. However, I've become a better Hearts player with this game and am now winning 25% to 33% of the time. IMO, this AI is much better than the Spades game. So, ignore the folks complaining (I used to be one of them) and get this game. You'll enjoy it!
Good graphics, awful gameplay. 5 stars to designer, 1 - to software developers. Only one actual computer "player", no simulation of three independent ones. It "knows" your cards, it "plays" against you only and can (suppose it does it every round) exchange cards behind the scene. No fair play and simulation, app is slow, full screen ads.
I like you can play the computer and pick player difficulty. It doesn't let you change your mind on which cards to pass before you pass them, though.
The programming here is very suspect. The computer programming so clearly knows what is in your hand. It is frustrating when it makes plays that would be asinine unless it knew exactly what was in your hand. I nonetheless have fun messing with the computer's mind with shrewd moves. Entertaining to a point.
