Editors' Review

+

Though this Spades game is full-featured and technically free, you'll have to tolerate some semi-invasive behavior to play. 100% Free Spades Card Game comes with a toolbar from the developer, and if you don't agree to install it, you won't be able to run the program.

If that weren't enough, the installer places a shortcut on your desktop without your permission. The game's cartoon graphics are amusing enough, and you can play against your PC or against human opponents, either on your LAN or on GameSpy lobby servers. The help menu provides immediate access to online tournaments and leagues. The computer players differ by skill, memory, predictability, aggressiveness, and even taunts. You can customize the decks and table style, but otherwise the interface stays the same. The available Spades variants include Partnership, Cutthroat, Suicide, Mirror, 3-Player Cut, and Navy Teams.

You can choose options such as game conventions, speed, scoring rules, penalties, bonuses, and even the tone of players' remarks. To brush up on rules and strategy, use the tutorial and auto hints. If you're playing as a beginner, you can always take back a play or throw a pie at your opponent. On most counts, we like this game, but as is always the case, we wish the bundled software would vanish.

"SPy-Ware, Toolbar addon, and home Page re-set"

February 17, 2013  |  By olvanmason

 |  Version: 100% Free Spades 7.42

Pros

The game itself is nice

Everything else. Spyware, adding toolbar and changing my selected home page and default search engine.

Summary

NOT WORTH THE RISK TO YOUR PC.

"4 Stars Cause...."

December 25, 2012  |  By miwi98

 |  Version: 100% Free Spades 7.42

Pros

I give it 4 Stars because I played this game, by this company, on my Palm.

Cons

Too busy, too many interruptions

Summary

When I played this game on my Palm Tungsten I could not get enough of it but was sooooo disappointed with the pop ups and everything. I know it's free but please it is soooo distracting.

"Worse Spade game in the World"

November 16, 2012  |  By cbs7477

 |  Version: 100% Free Spades 7.42

Pros

None. I think I am required to give one star otherwise they would get none!

Cons

Partner play makes no sense at all. You can re deal over and over again and still get virtually the same hand. Very bad programming and a complete waste of time.

"Avoid this game!"

August 10, 2012  |  By lannyst

 |  Version: 100% Free Spades 7.42

Pros

None at all!

Cons

Just about everything

Summary

Whoever wrote this program didn't even understand how to play Spades! Therefore, neither does your partner. You end up playing against your partner as well as the other team! So, before I delete this game I joined this stupid CNET thing and signed up for some stupid newsletter I don't even want in order to warn you away from this game. You've been warned. Now to get rid of the damned thing!

"not worth buying if you are serious about spades"

January 09, 2012  |  By pedro_bungoton

 |  Version: 100% Free Spades 7.42

Pros

The interface is good with lots of options for customizing

Cons

Plays very poorly and wins by cheating. Most computer card games use this approach. The programmers are either too lazy or too stupid to make the game play for real. The cheats are subtle - like giving you a nil hand when your partner can only bid 1 or 2. Your opponents almost always have a high bid to go with a nil. Your opponents also get bonus scores if you allow a 10 bid bonus of 100 in the scoring settings.

Summary

If you are not a good player you might enjoy this.
