Just a little more than a year ago, Telegames and GBA developer Cosmigo paired up to produce a collection of standard and familiar table games, Ultimate Brain Games. Even though each game could be found cheaply outside of the package, it was the sum of its parts that made Ultimate Brain Games such a fantastic and highly recommended collection of challenges for the Nintendo handheld. Just a little more than one year later comes Ultimate Card Games, a title that calls it exactly as it is: quite possibly the most complete package of single and multiplayer card games ever seen on any videogame system to date. It's a brilliantly implemented Game Boy Advance package that offers a gaming experience that perfectly suited to the Game Boy Advance's unique "instant gratification" market. A must-have? Without a doubt.
The features and options this game has are incredible. It's a great learning tool for those of us who barely understand certain card games. After reading the rules on how to play poker, I felt slightly more confidant. If for whatever reason I was unsure of what sets of cards meant what, I could just look to the options and find out. Needless to say, after about an hour or so of play, I learned to play poker. I'm no guru, but I get the basics. Every game on this compilation has the same ammount of detail put into it. From a brief history of the game to how to play and with how many players, you'll find a ton of things to immerse yourself in. Every card player with a GBA should have this game. Every collector of games should put this on their list of obtainables. I highly reccomend it.
I love playing card games. I am a long time fan of the various card and board games presented by Sierra. This time, GBA owners are offered a generous selection from Telegames. There are a LOT of games to choose from. Long trips will be a breeze with this in your arsenal. From solo play to up to four player competition, this game has something for every mood and situation. Ultimate Card Games is a nice game.
