Soltrio Solitaire is an Xbox Live Arcade title developed by Silver Creek Entertainment for the Xbox 360, which is a bundle of 18 separate solitaire card games, which was released on May 16, 2007.

Gameplay[edit]

The game supports the Xbox Live Vision camera and has 2 player multiplayer over System Link or Xbox Live, including competitive solitaire in which two players use the same foundation piles, and co-operative solitaire, in which players assist one another and pass cards over.

The game features a light roleplaying mode called "Voyage Adventure" in which the player traverses a game map to play solitaire games, which includes the ability to unlock new card elements and design customizable deck graphics.

The game featured downloadable content in the form of solitaire card game packs every two weeks until October 3, 2007, using games found in Silver Creek's Hardwood Solitaire title for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS.

Critical reception[edit]

IGN rated Soltrio as "mediocre". Some game modes, such as Memory, were criticized for being "padding". The quest mode was seen as worthless and the multiplayer Klondike-variation was deemed "sloppy and no fun". Although the competitive mode could be "spirited and fun", overall the package was described as unjustifiably expensive.[1]

The single-player games are nicely presented and the online multiplayer is decent, but it's just not enough to validate the high price point. Avoid this one at all costs.
