The online players make the game fun and competitive, but the fact that a player can hope out at any moment when losing, tricks the game. To gain more points in this app, players leave the game just before the last cards are played (if they are not winning). Defeats the purpose of playing cards against live players.
The game itself is good, but with few problem if they can be fixed. First is the online players going off.. it just few points off but should also get something like 30 minutes no online play. Also like other games where you can add people using codes, here if they either on facebook or their operating system. I like to play someone without facebook and has a different OS to mine.
Sorry but this is definitely not the best online hearts game. The online games only go to 50, you don't have the option of going down 26 points and quitters are not penalized for doing so. In fact, this is one of my least favourite online hearts games....oh...and the ai players are not that good either....uninstalled.
Scoring system is terrible. AI is really bad. Playing a rated game and one of the real players quit so the AI came in. I had all the cards to shoot the moon but hadn't taken any points yet. Spades was led. I played the queen (my last spade) and the AI took it with an ace. Didn't make any sense because the AI had lower spades and wasn't trying to shoot the moon. I hadn't taken any points yet so a real player wouldn't have been suspicious. Playing against the AI you get the sense that they know what you have in your hand.
I wish the cards were bigger because some times my big thumbs hit the wrong card but that's just a me problem. Great app, easy to use
There should be a mechanism to group players of similar strength in one game. It is very difficult to play when there are 2 strong players and two novices in a game. Also if players leave game it would be nice if the AI is set to difficult as a default.
