I can see I'm gonna get pretty cold playing this game. Still, whooor, eh? Sam Fox Strip Poker? S'gotta be a winner, innit? (dribble, slaver, drool, stream of sexist blubbering).

Yep, it's true. You too can bet your shirt in a game of naughty poker with Samantha Fox. No, ya big loop, not the real one, a sooper dooper on-screen digitised one. Is it any good, though, I hear you smirk? Well, all comments about the dubious logic behind computer-based strip poker aside, it's not really all that bad, mate.

Using Sammy's much coveted bod as a gimmick for a game of this type would be a bit naff if the game itself was a feeble excuse for a pervy cardgame. But as it happens it's not.

The program features a high degree of artificial intelligence, it says 'ere, so that Sammy analyses your play and alters her strategy accordingly. Hmm. I don't know whether this is strictly true, or whether she can actually see my cards, it's hard to say. But she did seem to know if the hand she had was worse than mine. Helpful if you want to win, I'd have said. And she does. Time after time after time! Look, you can call me a perv if you want, but the main thing that really bugged me was that Sammy doesn't take her clothes off! Even if you win two or three hands in a row she is still pictured wearing what looks like every piece of clothing she owns. Damn and Blast!

So, If the combined thrill of gambling and naked bodies fills you with anticipation, then off you go, with my blessing. But before you get too excited, I warn you. It's not easy!
