  1. For some reason, World Series on the PC is a completely different game from the console versions, with worse artificial intelligence, a completely different (and in some ways worse) interface, next to no character customization options, and no online play.
  2. 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.
  3. The great license and the professional players just can’t make for an entertaining title thanks to a weak graphics engine and poor AI.

    Sure the graphics are about the best Iwe seen in any PC version of holdem, but the gameplay... *sigh* About the worst. Also you can mention Sure the graphics are about the best Iwe seen in any PC version of holdem, but the gameplay... *sigh* About the worst. Also you can mention all the bugs... It took me about 5 minutes to find at least 3 mayor bugs, for exampel you can allways check... Quite nice to be able to look at the cards all the way to the river and even win the pot without even risking a dime, The soso graphics is the only thing that saves this misserable game from a 0/10 grade.

    this is the worst game i played for the poker genre you simply cannot win a game where your set up to loose from the start.i understand this is the worst game i played for the poker genre you simply cannot win a game where your set up to loose from the start.i understand competition and all but how bout making the game hard and not letting the programming pre pick a winner.the blinds start same place cant add new profiles the play is set up so you can not possibly go all in.i have played three seasons and thr same thing keeps happening i get a good starting hand aa they call with q5 and end up with the nuts by river simply not the kind of game that will improve or entertain..thanks for nothing and wasting my money on garbage Full Review »

    World Series Of Poker has about the worst interface I have ever seen, which is sad because its snappy graphics make you think you're in World Series Of Poker has about the worst interface I have ever seen, which is sad because its snappy graphics make you think you're in for some real fun. Fun, this is not, it's just a big let down. The AI is sub-par, the betting menus are poorly done, and absolute worst of all it will show you what your opponent was holding even if you fold!! This isn't poker, this is a cheap, rushed, and altogether forgettable experience. The only reason it gets a 2 instead of a 0 is because of those flashy graphics. Don't bother. Online poker sites are much better and more realistic than this. Full Review »
