Summary: I have this game for my ps2 and I really like the game a lot. I couldn't stop playing this game because it was so much fun. The size and everything fits perfect into my portable psp that I take with me everywhere that I go. The pricing of the game was perfect also ad very affordable for my budget.
Summary: Big, chunky polygon graphics, long load times and long mid-game pauses in the "action," clumsy in-game navigation, very poorly designed mini-game, almost nothing good about this game. In fact, go on your PC and do a search for "free poker game" and you'll get a better game than this. It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't take so long to load and if there wasn't a long pause between deals, allowing the PSP to catch up (it's obviously thinking, but thinking about what I can't...
Summary: I picked this up as the first game I bought for my PSP which I bought shortly after Christmas this year. The first thing I noticed were the incredibly slow load times, but I took that with a grain of salt as with a poker game, I didn't really see it as a terrible detriment. Then I discover the little feature called the bluff mini-game.
Summary: Horribly slow loading times and no feature to skip thru games you have folded on? Like watching paint dry at times. Althought there are some nice characters in the game ... the load times and poker basics have not been polished in this game. I also bought WSOP and although it's not as flashy, the gameplay experience is much better. Do yourself a favor, ignore Howard ... He's bluffing, when he says this one's good.
Summary: This game is very hard to play. Very tough AI system. Howard Lederer, Annie Duke, Raymer just a few of the professionals you will play against. Tournaments last very long hours...and there is a problem there is no way to save the game during a tournament...thats a big bummer. Career mode offers quiet alot you can decorate your pad with all kinds of neat stuff. Take out loans for tournaments. And sell items from your pad if you really are desperate on funds.
Summary: On the positive side, WCP2 is a comparatively cheap game to buy new (less than the price of a pack of 20 cigarettes), and absorbing enough to hold your attention. The graphics are pretty realistic, and you have an incredibly generous variety of Poker games and situations to choose from. I particularly welcomed the inclusion of Five Card Draw as a game option, which is something of a rarity these days given the preponderence of Hold 'Em.
