Sega Casino (DS)
Advantages: Multiplayer might be okay, if you have people willing to play with you
Disadvantages: Can be difficult to win enough to unlock other games, can get tired very fast
I'm sure I don't really need to explain what "Sega Casino" is about. There are three modes - Free Mode, Casino Mode and Multiplayer Mode. Before I start on the other modes, I have to say that I haven't been able to explore Multiplayer Mode because you need to know someone else who has any desire whatsoever to play the game with you.
When you start playing the game, there are five games to choose from. These are Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat and Texas Hold 'Em. There are others to unlock (which the game tells me are: Chuck A Luck; 7 Card Stud; Keno; and Jacks Or Better), but they are only unlocked once you reach certain amounts of chips. If you're anything like me, you'll probably never manage to win enough to unlock the other games. With the majority of the games, it's all really up to chance whether you win or not, seeing as you're betting on what you think will happen and there is pretty much no skill involved whatsoever.
I presume that there are some differences between Free Mode and Casino Mode, but I can't really tell the difference. Apart from in Casino Mode, I think you choose which table to play at (which dictates how much you can bet and that's about all). That's all.
I'm guessing if you particularly love casino games, you'll probably like this. Even then, though, I wouldn't particularly recommend it to anybody. As a game, there's not much to it - just a few menus with boxes with text inside them connecting the games. I'm not impressed, and I wasn't particularly expecting it to be brilliant in the first place.
Summary: Sega Casino is one of the weakest games I've played on Nintendo DS and I wouldn't recommend it.
