a game by Natsume
If you just can't find the means to schedule a trip to Vegas this year, don't despair. A great gambling experience can still be yours. And best of all, it can be experienced in the comfort of your own home with Natsume's Virtual Casino.
With a list of playable games that include Roulette, Seven Card Stud, Baccarat, Blackjack and Slot Machines, Virtual Casino is filled with play that can be enjoyed for hours. There is even an option to play Baccarat and Roulette against a friend in Two-player Mode. For the. gamer looking for a challenge beyond what just the games can bring, there is also a Story Mode to enjoy. This style of play starts you out with a menial sum of money and forces you to acquire a predetermined dollar amount in that specific game before moving on to the next. Then the whole process repeats itself for the next game.
Many players will consider the graphics to be below par compared to more complex titles, but they do work fine with the low demands of a casino title where play is more important than graphics. Between-game cinemas in the Story Mode are also kept to a minimum, brining nothing but pure gambling to players.
Players in search of a gambling title with plenty of replay value need to look no further. Grab your imaginary money and try to avoid the fictional poor house!
Fans of casino gambling get ready-virtual Casino is here. This one is a heck of a lot of fun. The graphics are super sharp and the music fits the game perfectly. The Story Mode is cool, but the computer usually has an unfair advantage. For instance, in 7 Card Stud, the computer received four straight flushes to my one. There are some nice save options though (even to memory cartridge) that make saving money and continuing easy. Some of the games were difficult to leam but after looking over the manual they got easier to play through. The VS. Mode is a neat option that really increases the replay value of the game.
Talk about tantalizing FMV! That's the Japanese for you-open about sexuality. On the game itself, I liked Virtual Casino very much. It is what I would expect from a 32-Bit gambling title. The game has great graphic, though I would've preferred something a bit more colorful and fun. The graphics gave Virtual Casino too much of a serious feel. The Story Mode is a great feature, but a few more games should've been included. Five small casino events just isn't enough to hold my attention. Here's a gambling tip for you-don't bother trying to bluff the computer at 7 Card Stud. It's too stupid to realize what you are doing.
As far as video-gambling games go, VC is okay. It covers all the mainstay gambling games, from Blackjack to slots, and the graphics are sharp. I really like the Story Mode, which lets you build a virtual fortune by progressing through a series of gambling games. Still, I wish there were more games to play (there are only five). The Two-player Mode ain't all that exciting, either. You can only choose from the two gambling games-Roulette and Baccarat-in which it doesn't matter if your opponent sees what you're up to. The developers should have added more multiplayer games and trusted players to hide their eyes.
I'm not sure if this is the best usage of a 32-Bit system like the Saturn, but it's still great for avid gamblers. The Story Mode is the best feature, allowing you to take on Vegas with a vengeance by setting goals to advance to the next level (and the next type of game). The Practice Mode is great for learning about gambling techniques, and is highly recommended if you want to win the Story Mode. The Two-player Mode is weak, sporting only two games and no fun. The background music is a nice touch, but can get annoying after a long Roulette session. If you like gambling, check this one out or cash in your chips.
