I have played Hoyle Card Games 2008 a great deal since retiring 2 years ago. I found several bugs that the patch update for 2008 did not fix. I contacted Encore sales and asked if the bugs had been worked out in 2012 that were present in 2008. I was told that 2012 was a different technology and the bugs had been corrected. Because of this info I ordered Hoyle Card Games 2012.
On the first day I got it and installed it, I started playing Hearts. During my 3rd game, I won with a score of 4 points. Because I did not get the Queen of Spades, I should have been given $231 as a "Queen Dodger". All I received was the $58 for the win. It was the same bug I had encountered in Hoyle Card Games 2008. Also in some hands 3 cards were missing when the players passed cards at the beginning of the game. Seems the "New Technology" was a joke and nothing has changed. If you own an older Hoyle Card Game, do not expect a newer card game to be better.
Also I expected a whole new set of virtual player verbalizations in the newer game. Unfortunately the virtual players said the exact same things. After hearing certain words and phrases for 2 years, I had heard it all and just turned the sound off because I knew everything the virtual players were saying. Very disappointed in Encore for not improving their games after 4 years of development. Cursing
