  • Summary: World Series of Poker features the likenesses of poker professionals participating in the 2005 WSOP Tournament. The game offers players a truly unique experience unlike any other poker video game on the market today. For the first time ever, the 2005 WSOP Tournament will be held at Harrah's Rio Suites in Las Vegas, the same location simulated in the video game and the location of the 2005 Lifestyle Show. All the sanctioned poker various of the World Series of Poker are available, including Texas Hold 'Em, 7 Card Stud, Omaha, and 5 Card Draw. With the flexible character creator, the player can create his or her own poker face, wear Vegas-style threads and upgrade looks/clothes as he or she gains money. Collapse

  1. Options for poker games on the Cube are scant at best, but even so, the merely competent opponent AI and middling career mode aren't enough to make this version worth your while.
  2. For those who know and enjoy poker, this game will be a total disappointment. [Dec 2005, p.111]
  3. This is a lousy simulation of the televised version. It looks terrible with its blocky graphics and herky jerky animation. The poker gameplay is about as average as you can get. There are better, more realistic poker games available on the net for free. Go ahead and look for one now.

    There's essentially no reason to pick up World Series of Poker. Scratch that, there IS no reason to pick up World Series of Poker.
  5. The great license and the professional players just can't make for an entertaining title thanks to a weak graphics engine and poor AI.
