  1. In all, if you are a fan of Texas Hold'Em, as I am, you will find some enjoyment in this game. Even so, the game wears thin on you after a short while. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this to anyone. The game is simply too vacant for it to warrant a purchase.
  2. Texas Hold 'Em Poker is much more sparse with no licensing and very little to distinguish it from a PC shareware title.

    OK, so there you have it. Buy this game to learn the how the rules of the different Texas Hold'em games differ (essential if you're going to Vegas soon)...don't buy it to get better at poker... My suggestion? Liquor in the front, poker in the rear.
  4. Not that Texas Hold'em Poker does anything wrong, there just is not a lot of content.
  5. Good for short sessions, but not one that you'll spend hours playing. [Feb 2005, p.117]

    But it doesn't really try to capture the essence or thrill of the game too much, and it takes the easy way out in just being average.
  7. It lacks sorely in presentation, and doesn't offer any kind of multiplayer effort to keep you or your friends involved for too long.

    Very well done, the game is perfect, with your opponents even learning your quirks if your not careful. The only thing this game is missing, is the smell of a fresh pack of cards, the sounds of the people around, and the eyes of your opponents. Really good game. Expand

    Marc, does that M. in your last name stand for Majesco? This game is awful! The rules of poker aren't even properly followed and the AI is abominable -- I went all in pre-flop at a 10-person table and every last one of the AI opponents called the bet. This game looks like a high school senior programming project. Expand
