More Vegas Games for Windows. (computer game) (Software Review) (Evaluation)
by David Gerding
Dying for a game of craps? Or maybe the tuxedo-wearing sophisticate in you yearns for a round of baccarat. If you're a real casino games fan, More Vegas Games for Windows, from New World and the folks at The Dreamer's Guild, might be for you.
The game presents nofrills Windows-based versions of poker, baccarat, craps, blackjack, and horse racing. Multiplayer support allows four players sitting at the same computer to play together by passing the mouse around. Unfortunately, there's no support for network or modem play. Unlike its Vegas namesake, this isn't a flashy production. The visuals are just adequate, and sound is sorely underutilized.
However, die-hard fans of the above games will find they can get a quick fix of their favorite and will soon forgive the utilitarian approach as they repeatedly click on Deal Again. Additionally, the Windows environment may make this easier to squeeze in at work. (On your lunch break, of course.)
