  1. In a sea of look-alike poker game clones, WCP2 stands out as the one that feels most like playing an actual game of poker against actual people, for better or worse.
  2. The long-time problems that do and will always hold gambling videogames down still exist here, mainly the fact that human emotion and reaction cannot be duplicated and gambling with fake money isn’t always satisfying when you can pull a real game together with your friends, but with all elements considered there simply isn’t a better videogame simulation of the popular card game to be found.
  3. The career mode will suck a lot of hours out of your life as you try to get the best pad around.
  4. Newcomers and poker addicts alike should all be pleasantly surprised by World Championship Poker 2‘s simple, easy to learn interface and addictive gameplay.

    The best part of the game by far is the career mode. [May 2007, p.82]
  6. World Championship Poker 2's offline play is the best you'll find amid this year's competition, and the online play is still pretty engaging.

    Found a big flaw in the game! If you play in a tourney of 100 or more people and are lucky enough to get down to the final 2-3 tables itFound a big flaw in the game! If you play in a tourney of 100 or more people and are lucky enough to get down to the final 2-3 tables it freezes up! I think it has trouble balancing players at the tables since it always freezes up when players move to your table. Anyone else experience this? Let me know. rambpp2000@msn.com Full Review »
