Not a very good poker game
6 April 2013
Summary: I play Texas Hold Em ' on my android phone and do quite well.I have won and placed in the top 3 in many sit n go tournaments.This game is nearly impossible to win!! The computer is very tough.The price of this item was good(for a used DS game).The item arrived on time.I would highly recommend the seller...excellent service!!
Summary: My son loves poker. I bought him this game because he always wants to play poker on my husbands phone and he really likes to play and get better. I did not know they had poker for the DS. He loves it, he was showing my 60 year old father how to play on Christmas day. For the price this was a great buy!
Summary: While this is a great game to play this cd rom & others mentioned on the net has a serious glitch in programming that makes the players flicker & the skin layer disappear the icons have changed to squares & the exit page is one big mess There are patches but apparently none officially from activision. The two I found seems to have made little difference.
Summary: The card play is decent overall. There are always the times when you ask yourself 'huh?' at some of the other player's behavior, but you probably see that with most games. It takes awhile to get the hang of things and there is no rushing through games or you end up losing very badly - much like real poker. This in itself wouldn't be a bad thing, except for the fact that YOU CAN'T SAVE GAMES!
Summary: This game rates very high with me. I like the phone calls from pros inviting you to cash games. The AI is fairly easy to beat but still will provide hours of good poker fun with no money risked.LOL the no money risk is important...
Summary: I guess if you want to play poker with virtual players and have good eyes, this is fine. The type is very small and hard to read (maybe me just getting older). When only playing 4 players, the screen still pans back and forth which can cause unnecessary nausia. I was disappointed that the blinds did not increase which makes for some real long play.
Summary: I like this game well enough but it takes a while to play a game and you cannot not save the game you are currently playing. So if you quit, you lose. Who's idea or lack of forethought was that.
Excerpt: "...you into the big wide world of live poker against opponents who are hoping to take your money. ==The game== The game is a very accurate reflection of a real game of poker. You have the choice of either a quick, single game right up to a full career mode where the objective is to progress through lower ranked tournaments and built up enough cash to enter the World Series itself and walk away with the coveted Golden Bracelet, the ultimate prize ...
Pros: Cannot lose real money, educational
Cons: Slow to play some hands, scrolling screen, cannot save game in mid tournament
Conclusion: I find this game very annoying, the format is annoying as it flickers between 2 sides of the table! The poker play on it i think is rather poor. It dosent even prompt you if u want to fold when you have the option to check, something that i have done countless times by mistake. I have saved about 4 times and then turnd my ds thinking it would of but u have to exit the menu before it saves.
