Not for those used to playing online
28 March 2010
Summary: I love poker and having reviewed the games that were available for the PSP opted for this one, World Poker Tour. I've played quite a lot of poker online over the last few years, starting off playing sit n gos before moving onto cash games, just at low limits I might add. Not having played a poker game before, other than against other real people (online or against friends at home) I wasn't really sure what to expect really from this game.
Excerpt: "Ok i myself am a hardend poker player, i love it and the buzz that comes with winning. I thought i would give this game a try and now i really wished i had kept my money to bet with. On the other hand if your a beginner at poker and want to brush up on a few rules of the game or just want to play without the risk of loosing then this is a good game for you to start with. There are many different game modes when you start, there is " Quickplay ...
Pros: Ok for fun and for novice plyers wanting to practice
Cons: Boring for those who are poker mad and love to win cash
Summary: I was looking forward to this game, but as usual with PSP games it disappoints. Slow moving, incredibly frustrating waiting for ages between each section. Limited options. I would stick with the PS2 version. Also i have qualified twice from the amateur tour only to be 'kicked out' back to square one. Whilst i may have a 'buggy' version, the slowness in loading pages in itself makes this a frustrating game.
Summary: I was looking forward to a poker game on the PSP - this hardware seems ideal to this sort of game. However, this is a huge disappointment. Once you've finally got to the game itself - after five minutes worth of liscense agreements and logos - you have to go through a couple of loading screens to get to even the quickplay game. As I use my PSP mainly when I'm travelling, I would have done half my journey before I finally get to play.
