User reviews of Spades!
Addictive and enjoyable, even though partner AI not smart enough to avoid over-bag penalties or allow nil-bid opponent to take the book. Video ads interrupt gameplay. Looking for alternative.

Every so often it plays Video ad : ( No way to get around it. Otherwise decent game

While I will play this game, the computer doesn't always make smart moves all the time.

Adds while actively playing, preventing play. Fun when it works, lots of frustration.

Ugh Id like online if my partner didnt always suck!!!! Like seriously. Cutting my books, cutting low card books with ace of spades. Rookie mistakes. Plus it freezes then bombs my hand. Sheesh. I love spades but this ish is ridiculous.

Not for the saavy Wins are what you expect them to be. Losses, however, pile up as your partner turns into opponent #3. You have no chance when the system wants you to lose. Dismal choice for spades unless you are a beginner.
