World Championship Poker 2: Featuring Howard Lederer
14 December 2005
Conclusion: Slightly less inventive, but cool all the same, is the new tell/bluff system. World Poker Tour did something like this earlier this year, but not to the same extent. Basically, whenever the game feels like you've misplayed a hand or are generally doing something devious, a little circular meter pops up. In it are two notches, red and black, as well as a yellow icon you can move around.
Pros: Smart artificial intelligence that plays any of the available poker variations quite well, 14 poker variations, Fairly realistic character models and reaction animations, Upgrade points give some intriguing boosts to your game, Online across all platforms.
Cons: Bluffing minigame is an interesting but flawed concept, Commentary and soundtrack aren't particularly listenable, Character-customization feature is weaker than in last year's game, PSP version is more expensive than the rest, despite not offering any differing content.
