Once you start winning and accumulating money, you can spend your winnings on increasingly better pads, and furnishings. Hit a losing streak, and you may have to hock your stuff to stay in the game. 14 types of poker are featured, including Texas Hold'em, Five Card Draw, Seven Card Stud and Pineapple. [Crave] Expand

  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 career mode will suck a lot of hours out of your life as you try to get the best pad around.

    The best part of the game by far is the career mode. [May 2007, p.82]
  4. Probably not worth much more than a simple weekend rental.

    The most challenging poker game yet - so newbies beware! [Jan 2006, p.95]

    When the pickings are slim, you gotta take what you can get. [Jan 2006, p.80]

    All In seems like Crave's attempt to bet the farm on nothing more than a high card. The few improvements the game makes over last year's entry pale in comparison to its shortcomings.

    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 Collapse
