It's like a game, except without the fun or interactivity.

The Good

The Engrish in the card interpretations is so bad that it's almost amusing--until you realize that this was an expensive cartridge that some poor kid got for Christmas.

Probably the least annoying part of the game is the music. It's not good, by any means, but it wasn't too bad to listen to just once.

The Bad

Where to begin? Once you've input your name, birthday, sex, and question, it proceeds to spit out a tarot reading. Of course, in order to do this it first must shuffle the deck--slowly. Having shuffled the deck, it slowly deals out cards, and then, one at a time, it slowly shows them to you. After the interminable wait for the reading to finish, the game asks what state you live in and presents you with lottery numbers. And then the game is over.

The Bottom Line

Mediocre music, pathetic graphics, and a complete lack of interactivity make this game so bad it's not even worth playing just to make fun of it. Its only saving grace is that it is very, very short, so you aren't forced to play it for long.
