World Series of Poker 2008

True achievements
4 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Looks: 6/10 The screen size can be a little small, especially with bigger tables, and the cards can be hard to read. (Good luck seeing your suit in Razz, or Seven Card Stud without "peeking"). The characters look decent enough, not the best though. Achievements: 9/10 If you put the time in to this game, you should be able to 1000/1000 eventually, so I think it deserves a good score.

  • Excerpt: When 11-times World Series of Poker bracelet winner, Phil "The Poker Brat" Hellmuth Jr offers to teach you lessons in the fine art of tournament poker, you want to listen.

Expert Review

Game Over Online
10 December 2007
  • Excerpt: There are many improvements to this year’s edition of WSOP. Compared to last year, the career mode in 2008 is much more in-depth. First you have the option of creating your own pro or becoming a look-a-like of an existing champion, but who wants to play heads-up poker with Phil Hellmuth when you are….Phil Hellmuth? Like most players, I created my own poker champion. You can pick your player’s clothes, hat, and sunglasses and even their voice.

  • Conclusion: If you're a Looney Tunes collector and absolutely must own everything related to the franchise, pick this one up. Otherwise, you'll probably be disappointed with what Looney Tunes: ACME Arsenal has to offer. That's not to say it has no redeeming value -- if you're truly after a vapid brawling experience, by all means, be our guest. Overall, however, AA is a shallow trip down license lane, and that's all, folks.

World Series of Poker 2008

26 June 2008
  • Conclusion: World Series of Poker 2008: Battle for the Bracelets ist ein rund um gelungenes Spiel. Man hat sich sichtbar Mühe bei der Einzelspieler-Karriere gemacht, Videotutorials und zahlreiche Missionen machen Spaß. Am meisten begeistert aber der Online-Part und durch die mehrstündigen Spiele über Xbox Live vergisst wohl jeder die grafischen Mängel.
  • Pros: Toller Multiplayer
  • Cons: Schwache Grafik
