Motion-X Poker Vs Yahtzee?

Hi guys, I am thinking of getting either one of these games. Which is better? Which has more replay value? Oh yeah, if I go with Motion-X Poker, should I get the first one or Motion-X Poker Quest?

Yahtzee Adventures is much more deep and has several different game modes, not to mention you can play two players on the same device. I have both and Yahtzee Adventures has tons more replay value.

Motion-X Poker was one of my first buys. I was totally blown away by the reality of the rolling dice. The graphics are fab, and there are loads of unlockable dice and boards. Once I had unlocked them though, the game faded for me. I just bought Yahtzee Adventures, to bring back some old memories, and I am equally blown away, but for different reasons. There is an Adventure mode, where you play against different characters from all over the world, as well single player against the AI, or your friends. Also, there are a bunch of different twists to the original Yahtzee rules which keep it from getting dull.

If I had to choose again, I would go with Yahtzee. Hope that helps

These are two of my most played apps over time.

Motion-X poker was one of the first games I bought. I have never bought the sequel to it though, so not sure if that is a lot better. I still play this game, if not every day, at least a few times a week and think it is the best game when you have like 4 minutes while waiting on someone, or standing in line, etc.

Yahtzee Adventures is also a favorite game of mine, and with the variety of different modes I tend to never get bored with it.

So that was no help at all

My answer is both? heh.

Actually I would say for long term value and for multiplayer ability, Yahtzee Adventures probably has the best value of the two.

I want real dice in Yatzee Adventures. It is a dice game after all.

Once you take the 15 mandatory minutes to beat Yahtzee's Adventure Mode, you'll probably never play the game again.

Hrm Yahtzee seem to be the more popular choice. But man, it's EA and they never update their games and seem to have a don't care attitude. Still considering carefully. Would love to get both but really only have room for one.

...yeah, but Yahtzee is in no need of any up-dates. It's complete already. SimCity.....now that's another kettle of fish

Yeah, it's fairly stable but I did experience the odd crash. I'd say once every 5 hours or so, and it could have easily been something else on my phone or low memory.
