This is one of the best Yu-Gi-oh! games I ever played on the PSone. This one is called Yu-Gi-oh!: Forbidden Memories. The developers who did Castlevania, Silent Hill, and Metal Gear Solid is known as Konami. I played the other Yu-Gi-oh! games, but they suck. This one played the old school rules with out sacrifices of 1 or 2 monsters. So you can bring special high star monsters out on the field with without sacrificing monsters. There are spells and trap cards in this game, but you will be mostly using monster cards. This game is about how Yu-Gi-oh! go stay. This one is set in Ancient Egypt about 5000 years ago. You will face alot people in game. You will not use guns or swords. You are using cards to battle people. If you lose, it’s GAME OVER. You have to win in every duel, otherwise you will lose everything.

American history has its bleak times, and the early part of the 20th century is like some kind of dark fairy tale, but there is no magic when it comes to taking over a huge city during the Jazz Age. This is the time of real gangsters, flappers, speak-easy casinos, bootleg gin, and a stock market built on credit. There are no knights, and the weapons of choice are Tommy guns and switchblades. This is Chicago in the 1920s, and you might wonder why we are even here. Why, to build a casino empire, of course!

In the film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Indy says to Harold Oxley, “I know you, Harry, and you’ve never been this interesting.” Well, if Harold Oxley’s normal personality was put into a casual solitaire game it would be Legends of Solitaire: The Lost Cards.

That is just how boring this golf solitaire game is. If you are wanting to relax, no, more like get knocked out faster than the one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor, then this game will do it. I had reviewed another golf solitaire not to long ago, and it was upbeat and very fun, and nothing like this version. The only thing these games have in common is the base gameplay. The cutesy little characters on the cards are supposed to be from fairytales and legends of Euro-centric folk tales we are so familiar with, but no matter how big the dragon might be that we would eventually have to fight, this game is just not worth the time you might put into it, because you won’t stay awake long enough to find the beast, but you might have some interesting dreams when you collapse on your keyboard.

While I like dogs just as much as cats, and I have to admit that the dogs in this game are very cute, it was not really gripping, but if you’ve got a bout of insomnia, or the neighbor’s dogs are keeping you up when they bark at their nocturnal kitty friends at night, Best In Show Solitaire will put you right to sleep. While you do get great info on various breeds of dogs and some sort of history on them and what each breed is best known for, like working dogs or sporting dogs, the game play is somewhat tedious. There are no sounds to give your left brain a little break now and then, so the game is purely visual. A little bark once awhile would have been nice when you won a hand.

Sometimes, you just have to take a break from all those hidden object mysteries and match 3 adventures for something simple and purely fun! This simple solitaire game takes us onto the fairway of many golf courses, and the game can’t get any better! We even have sports announcers covering our moves, and their commentary about the courses is pretty funny. I loved the line about the Modest Municipal course being in worse shape than Jack Black.

This is pretty much a tri-peaks solitaire style game, but the golf game atmosphere makes it worth the time you put into it. From the wise-cracking golf announcers to the mischievous gopher with a bad attitude, it seems like I was playing solitaire while watching CaddyShack or Happy Gilmore. Golf couldn’t be any more fun than an evening down at Pirate’s Cove Mini Golf, and you don’t have to go out for margaritas afterwards. If you love solitaire games, then you should not pass up Fairway ™ Collector’s Edition. Casual card games don’t get any better than this!
