    Governor of Poker isn't a bad game, but it's not a good one, either. The concept of taking over the entirety of Texas by winning games of poker is quite cool, but it's a tedious grind against loads of AI opponents that couldn't care less about making risky moves, simply because there's no risk involved for them.

    Governor of Poker on 3DS is a decent game of single-player poker, and if it were the only portable poker option on the market, it would be a must-buy. But it isn’t, so it’s not.

    Those looking for straight-up, no-frills Texas Hold ‘Em can find it in Governor of Poker. Those looking for engaging goals and atmosphere, however, likely will not; the constant tug-of-war on the tables to build the funds to buy the next non-interactive building feels more like a chore than a real accomplishment.

    Overall, it's an okay game for poker fans who somehow haven't got their fill of the card game, but its appeal really is limited, and there really so many other poker options out there.

    There are few reasons why a game that is available on the mobile market and also available for free on a Flash format should be released as a paying game for the 3DS. Other than players with a very keen interest in poker and who are not familiar with the other versions of this game, very few will find it appealing.
