Summary: I loved the game, but I think if your serious about poker there may be a few things you might like added. A teaching mode where you receive comments on your play. A percentage indicator telling you your chances of winning (part of the teaching mode). Also the announcers comments are so boring and so repetitive you could barf, thank god you can turn it off. The comments should be more informative (yes teaching mode).
Summary: I was just playing this game and pulled a three of a kind sevens. I went all in with another player. Turned out he had a three of a kind sevens, also. That's six sevens. How does that happen? Isn't there only four in a deck, or have I been living in the twilight zone all this time? Either way, I know I've never seen that in a real poker game.
Summary: I really enjoyed playing this game. I am an avid fan of poker and it's great to get some practice in on something other than the internet. It can be very difficult too and is fun for people of all skill levels none-the-less.
Summary: World Series of Poker (the so-called official game) is a farce. The game is completely programmed to make you lose. The player does not have the freedom to be aggressive or bully. The game is programmed to make you play one style, and that is controlled poker. If you get too aggressive the computer will automatically give the opponent a bigger hand. Also, even when you adjust your play to the computers style, the opponents still "suck out" all the time.
Summary: With that being said, its the best poker game out there ive seen so far. I do like how it has alot of the different tournaments, and not just the final WSOP. Its a 4 in my book mainly because for anyone that plays for money, you will feel like you wasted hours of your time when you win and have nothing to show for it. If you are interested in learning more about the game, or just have no desire to ever play for money, this is by far the game for you.
Summary: This one is real. A Doyle hand is a 10/3. Players go "all in" on it in real life. I live in vegas and see this all the time. It is gambling. This one game is better then WCP2 and Stacked. I have all of them. This one has all the features you want. Realistic hands. You lose with A/K or Pocket rockets sometimes. Quick play. Good graphics. Cool intros. Chips are on the table (stacked doesn't even have a stack of chips!), players walk away (stacked player's turn black!
Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift and I LOVE it. This is the kind of game you look forward to playing after work. Kids will be bored, but if you've ever played Texas Hold 'Em, or watched it on TV you will enjoy this. I like playing in "career mode" the best, where you can design your own character and go toe to toe with the pro players. I agree that the graphics are not the greatest. Who cares?!? This isn't Grand Theft Auto, it's a card game.
Summary: This is a very good game. This is worth a round of applause for quite a few reasons. The Quickplay mode is a very good way to spend a few minutes with WSOP Superstars. The Career mode is great. You get to play any kind of poker you see on TV along with the Main Event. The main event is awesome! You get the sights, sounds, and feeling that you'd see at a real poker table. I did one without saving and doing cheats with my friend, we finished 37th.
Summary: I got this game for my birthday thinking it would be better than playing online with a bunch of random idiots. Since I only play for money in real life, it made a lot of sense. This game has been all I expected it to be and more. While the graphics are not the greatest, I can't complain. How great do they really need to be when all you are doing is playing your cards? Game play is good.
Summary: This game is awful. The graphics are really bad, and the character creator is way worse than WCP which came out a year ago. The online bails everyone out when the host leaves and the AI is a joke. I returned this game when someone bought me the World Poker Tour game which is cheaper and MILES better.
