The reason I gave Beat the House 2 an 82 and not higher is because it is a good game -- not great, not terrible. I feel this game will appeal to people who enjoy other computer card games. It is a good addition to any gamer's collection, because it is the type of game that can be played over and over. I love having it on my laptop. It comes in handy on plane trips. Instead of reading, I play a few hands of blackjack to pass the time. If you've played solitaire or hearts, or enjoy other gambling software, then grab a copy; you won’t be disappointed. It’s good to see a game deliver all it says it will on the box.
Avid gamblers and casino aficionados of the world, rejoice. Beat the House 2 is an accurate, entertaining way to experience the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat, without actually risking your own money. The statistics and coaching features will enable beginners and veterans to get lots of practice before heading off to Vegas, Reno, Atlantic City, or wherever for the “real thing.” Everything about this game reflects the true nature of these games, and adds in the flavor and the atmosphere that make gambling such a popular pastime. Anyone looking for a solid, complete gambling game will need to look no farther than Interplay’s Beat the House 2, a truly solid title in every respect.
If you're interested in slick graphics and configuration, you could do worst than HOYLE CASINO, another solid entry in Sierra's HOYLE lineup. But BEAT THE HOUSE 2 supplies more authentic casino-style games and instructions for the serious player. In either case, it's hard to lose, since you avoid the potbellied, cigar-smoking, fiftyish crowd.
