If you're a gin-rummy aficionado, this game should keep you entertained for quite a while. Installing Ultimate Gin is a somewhat lengthy process, which makes sense once you see the quality graphics. We liked the fact that we were given the option to play against the computer, a real-life Internet opponent, or a friend on the same LAN. If you choose to challenge the computer, you'll find yourself in a casino sitting across from your opponent, who tries to intimidate you by making rude comments. You can customize the game to your liking, changing your opponent's skill level, the game type, the casino room, the deck type, the shuffle speed, and the music. However, the trial version only allows you to launch the game five times, which seems a bit chintzy. This high degree of configurability, along with the variety of play options, makes Ultimate Gin a worthy pick for any lover of the game.
