Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This poker game makes a nice way to kill a few minutes now and then, but its lack of features and demo restriction may frustrate some users. As you're likely to infer from its title, this application offers the classic poker variation known as five-card draw. Unlike many similar programs that resemble real-world video-poker games, this one actually lets you play against three other computerized opponents. However, since the demo only allows you access to the easiest AI setting, it's simple to get your foes to fold by betting heavily during the first round of wagering. You can change the maximum amount of cash you have at your disposal, but the other features are either nonexistant or disabled by the demo. Hard-core players also may get annoyed at having to relaunch the program and start from scratch every seven hands. Like many games of this ilk, 5 Card Draw Poker lacks elaborate graphics and sound effects, but its appearance and layout are functional for a simple card game. Also, although the app could be a quality learning tool for novices, it lacks help files, hints, or tutorials. Therefore, this poker title best suits midlevel players just looking to squeeze in a few hands during work breaks or downtime.
