Single player not challenging

Good if you play 2 player mode. Single player mode is far too easy. Haven't lost a single game at highest difficulty setting, and I'm not that good. AI makes some boneheaded moves. OTOH if you have 2 players its nice. Board is beautiful. Soothing japanese (?) backround...

OTOH if you have 2 players its nice. Board is beautiful. Soothing japanese (?) backround music. Has landscape mode. Very nice presentation.

    Weak competition

    On the one player setting it is easy to win at this game. The App is a very weak competitor. Even at the highest difficulty setting it is easy to win and win by a large margin.

    Disappointed

    I love the challenging game, Othello, upon which Reversi is based, and I looked forward to playing this version of it. I am disappointed to see that this game allows illegal moves. I cannot enjoy this app; I play only by the rules.

    Single player is useless.

    Probably perfectly fine as a two player game, but the AI on single player is terrible. The AI was either written by someone who doesn't know the game at all, or someone who just didn't care if it was terrible.

    Too easy

    As a previous post stated, the AI definitely needs a boost in this version. Unless you are completely not paying attention to what you are doing, it is near impossible to lose on the most difficult setting. Fun enough to pass the time with, but look elsewhere if want a challenge.

    Way too easy

    The AI in this game needs some tweaking. It is nearly impossible to lose no matter what difficulty is chosen. The AI often offers you a coveted corner spot unnecessarily. For a buck it is worth it, if only to stroke your ego, but if you want a challenging game you'd be better off playing an organic partner.

    No difficulty

    The difficulty select is a lie. If you like games where the opponent ignores victories & lets you win then this is for you. If you wanted to sharpen your skills then you'd best look elsewhere.
