Scenario Mode: Players are presented with a series of poker "puzzle" challenges that gradually increase in difficulty. Lucky Charms: Players can improve their luck through this Career Mode skill.

    Whether you just want something to play Texas Hold ‘em on your PS2 for, or something with the depth and customization of a sports sim, All In is your best bet.
  2. The tutorials are helpful, the character creation elements are amusing, and the display and presentation of the game outperform every other poker game available.
  3. It does feature a nice variety of games, a solid career mode and online play, but struggles in the graphics, audio and artificial intelligence which take the title down.
  4. Up to this point I've been recommending "Stacked" for the advanced poker player, and "World Poker Tour" for newbies. I don't see any reason to change that recommendation. [Nov. 2006, p.112]
  5. Like every other console poker game on the market, it simply can’t compete with the real experience of playing poker. All In has a lot of goods but an equal number of bads that keep it from being anything but an average poker simulation that fails to captivate and engage the player.
  6. While World Championship Poker featuring Howard Lederer: All In for PS2 isn’t the worst poker game ever made, it’s in the running.

    The great selection of poker styles is ruined by limited play options, a horrible presentation and crappy player A.I. Save yourself some cash and just buy a deck of cards instead.
