Excerpt: Poker games haven’t come of age when it comes to the current generation of consoles. The current poker boom should be enough to correct that, of course, as more publishers and developers look to turning the sport into the perfect console game.
Conclusion: There are a couple of small annoyances; the fact that you need to scroll through your betting amount, should you wish to raise, is unnecessary. If you wish to bet $4000, you’ll spend vital seconds waiting for the scroll bar to reach the desired point.
Conclusion: All told, for $20 World Poker Tour has enough to offer poker fans to make it worth checking out. Like every other retail poker game out there, this one has its share of flaws. But those flaws don't add up to nearly as much of an overall detriment as the other poker options currently available, thus...
Pros: Fairly lengthy career mode that actually feels like it goes somewhere, More online play for the PS2 and Xbox, A gaggle of crazy poker games, Robust create-a-player function.
Cons: Graphics are still downright ugly, Commentary is mostly repetitive and flat, Artificial intelligence relies much too heavily on checking, and it makes some exceedingly dumb calls from time to time, Pro players are hardly used and are barely noteworthy.
Conclusion: So, the gameplay is reasonable, if predictable and the facial gimmicks are flawed but amusing. The load times are excruciating, the dealers are obviously missing fingers and the graphics are not exactly a million dollars. For diehard fans of the WPT only.
Pros: It’s Texas Hold’em, Giving your character overlarge boobs!, Some nice videos for fans of the WPT stars
Cons: Clunky interface, AI not quite convincing, Silly loading times, Gimmicky facial ‘tells’
Conclusion: However, ultimately the incredibly slow play, dragged down by its lumbering animations and tiresome player comments, ("Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I think I'm going to.............................. fold.
Conclusion: Seeing as you are reading this review you undoubtedly have access to the internet which means you already have 100’s of sites out there offering you most of the same features the game does. So why should you buy 2K’s WPT game?

Excerpt: "World Poker Tour on köyhäksi jäävä yritys tuoda Texas Hand Hold 'em-pokeria myös konsolipelaajien ulottuville. Pelin graafinen vaisuus ja sisällön köyhyys ovat pelkkiä sivuseikkoja, kun ajattelee miten karmaisevasti koko pelin idea jo itsessään romuttuu rahapanosten puuttuessa konseptista.
Pros: + Edullinen konsolipeliksi
Cons: - Perusidea romuttuu ilman rahapanoksia, - Maailma pullollaan parempiakin tapoja pelata pokeria, - Graafinen toteutus tekee pelistä sietämättömän hitaasti etenevän, - Nettipelipalvelimet enimmäkseen autioita
