I learned that Bridge, while a confusing game from the outside, is actually a very strategic and mentally stimulating game once one gets into it. The presence of Mr. Sharif gave the program an air of sophistication that was very welcome, and enjoyable. If you are a bridge player, casual or dyed-in-the-wool, or just wanting to learn the game, then this program is a must for you. You won't be sorry.
While I’m not a Bridge expert, I still feel qualified to judge the game from the standpoint of someone looking to learn about playing the game of Bridge, which I am. From a basic and rudimentary standpoint, Bridge Deluxe 2 did a good job of providing some entertaining play. The tutorials were solid and quite helpful in learning the game. However, as a computer game there were a number of components that could have been added or improved. I view this much like I view Interplay’s Caesar’s Palace — both are decent titles but seem to be lacking a lot of what makes a strong computer game. Maybe in this case it’s the ability to choose different types of playing partners or opponents (more aggressive, better defensive players), more difficulty levels, or the ability to simply see people sitting around the table (e.g., Hearts) instead of just cards. Overall, the game provided some solid play but didn’t really bother to add in much else.
