CNET Editors' review
This top-rated trial for one of the most popular solitaire programs around continues to improve. The 2009 version of SolSuite Solitaire adds another two original games, bringing the grand total to 500...for now. Expect to see even more new games in later releases. The excellent trial offers a free month of play (with three shuffles per game), and big solitaire fans will likely register before the 30 days are up.
The helpful interface lets you browse games grouped by type, time, difficulty, and skill level, or you can have the program choose a variation at random. SolSuite provides a glance at each game's rules, a difficulty rating, and a layout. Players can choose between different card sets and backgrounds, and they can even create their own solitaire games using the Rules Wizard.
Strategies, tips, and hints help beginners, and adepts will enjoy the robust statistics including graphs, 3D charts, tables, logs, and online high scores. You can always undo your moves and return to a good position. The suite supports multiple players, which is perfect for families and tournaments. A longtime editor and user favorite on CNET Download.com, SolSuite looks likely to further satisfy our solitaire cravings in 2009.
