    Unprofessionally run. Membership privileges change without notice. Players get banned for no reason.

    Hardwood Spades used to be an awesome site for a good game of spades. It used to have tons of players at any time, lots of rooms with tables going, people from all over the world playing with lively chat that sometimes g... Read Full Review

    When I was a child I loved to play Spades when I went home and would be with my family during the holidays. But this game is completely different from what I remember the rules. So personally I foundthis game horrible to... Read Full Review

    Enjoyable card game spoilt with some exceptionally bad A.I.

    Ok if youve played any of the Hardwood XBLA games then you already know what the music, graphics and sounds will be like before even downloading this game. Graphically the game is poor, for a start the backgrounds are... Read Full Review

    Like spades? Well, you won't find any surprises here...

    If you aren't familiar with the card game Spades, chances are you have a free version that comes pre-installed on your computer. The rules are simple enough, it's kinda like a mix between War and Go Fish. You can play wi... Read Full Review

    Spades on Live!

    It's a great game, especially if you got some friends to play with. Forget the boring sounds, you got a 360, throw in a custom soundtrack. Jam what you want while you play. Don't jump into it like I did. I always played ... Read Full Review

    Fun at first, but gets dull quickly...

    I love card games as much as anyone, so when I saw Spades and Hearts pop up XBOX Live I couldn't wait to test them out. Spades started out enjoyable. The single player was challenging, but turned out to be very predict... Read Full Review

    It's Spades. It does the job. Bizzare comment from Gamespot about the graphics though...

    So it's Spades - as long as you get the rules right, surely you can't go wrong? Well, they got them right and threw in a few variations. It's good clean simple fun. If you like Spades, you'll like this. I'm not a huge Sp... Read Full Review

    What else would you expect

    Spades is spades. When it comes to card games, I think server stability is more important than graphics and sounds. HArdwood spades is a solid spades game. Where the problem comes in is server stability. From time to... Read Full Review
