First-person shooters, sure, but first-person gambling? This is blackjack, only viewed from the best seat in the house: inside the martini-addled head of a card junkie. Our host is Mr. Paradise (how can you not be magnetically drawn to Vegas with a name like that?) %26ndash; prepare to meet his hands.
GASP as he drops chips on the felt. BLINK as he waves his hand to stick. SIGH as he slaps his hands together with victor%26rsquo;s glee. Then do it all over again. And again. Sometimes you%26rsquo;ll even get an achievement. Well done for winning $10,000. Well done for winning with a five-card hand. There%26rsquo;s even one for playing the game for two consecutive hours %26ndash; well done for enduring it, we suppose. How%26rsquo;s about this: keep the 700 points, and buy 42 All-Time Classics on DS instead. You%26rsquo;ll get blackjack with 41 other games to boot. VIP? Oh, it%26rsquo;s VIP all right. A Very Ignorant Purchase. By the way, we should also warn you that this has a %26lsquo;Teen%26rsquo; rating for %26lsquo;simulated gambling%26rsquo;. Well, duh.
