The game contains a wide range of options that allow both beginners and experts to enjoy a game of bridge. You can use over 20 playing options including the Stayman Convention, Take-out Doubles, and Jacoby Transfers. You can also choose to practice different strategies such as forced slam bids, and use the take-back and review options to analyze your game. In addition to full-motion video clips (including an extensive tutorial) starring Omar Sharif (unfortunately missing from this CD-rip, in the interest of saving our precious space), the game has one of the best on-line reference materials on bridge I have ever seen. You can browse an extensive guide to bidding and strategies, a how-to guide for scoring rubbers, and even a comprehensive glossary.
With excellent AI that offers a challenge to users of all skill levels, top-notch on-line help, and many more options than other bridge programs, Bridge Deluxe II is a must-have if you enjoy the card game. You can even play with up to 3 other players in hot-seat or LAN mode, although the latter requires MS-based network and is not easy to set up. Two thumbs up, way up!
To be honest, I expect this game to be better, with the endorsement and all.
Both the bidding and playing pretty much on the beginner level, sometimes worse. For example, it has this strange tendency to make an opening lead in the trump suit against a trump contract AND does not lead the fourth of the longest suit against a notrump contract. Sure, these are all legit actions, but only with good reason. Other basic things it doesn't do include returning the partner's opening lead.
The bidding part is worse. It does not use 5-card majors, does strange things with bidding (such as takes the bidding from a safe contact to an unsafe one).
The only "tournament" included in the game is rubber bridge, which means the player is pretty much left to luck.
The only thing Omar Sharif did was lend his name to the game, which, in retrospect, may not be that wise.
