It has its charms - but consider some alternatives,
This review is from: Omar Sharif's Bridge (Video Game)
Omar Sharif's Bridge scores plus points for its competent cardplay and fairly direct bidding. The voiceover commentary adds to the enjoyment too. Visually it is attractive on screen. So if you are an intermediate player, or a keen beginner, it may be just the thing for you.
The "tutorial" is poor, a missed opportunity. Instead of taking the beginner through from the basics, it assumes a good basic grounding and starts with a reasonably complicated deal - like the first half is missing [maybe i had a deficient copy ?]. and it doenst have the voice-over.
A couple of alternatives:
If you want a strong bridge playing program, consider shelling out £50 to £70 for Jack, or microbridge, or one of the others.
If you want a quick/free starter at the game, there are several floating around on the web including the one I use (Easybridge) which doesnt play as well as omar sharif, but it does allow you to see its chain of reasoning - so you can at least understand how your partner made their choice, even if it was palpably daft. So it can help you develop some of those partner-handling skills. (If only all human partners had the same facility... ... and not just in a cardplaying context...)
