  1. "WSOP" has a better Career mode than this game, and faster gameplay. But WPT has a better online mode, and slightly better computer AI.
  2. World Poker Tour is the best of the console poker bunch--though that isn't necessarily saying an awful lot.
  3. Despite the amount of complaints on the table, I still think World Poker Tour should be given a chance if you plan to take it online, because as far as I know, this is the only poker videogame that offers such an extensive online mode.
  4. Buy WPT if you watch poker; buy "World Championship Poker 2" if you play poker. [Jan 2006, p.95]
  5. The graphics are piss poor and the AI a joke most of the time, but generally this is the best of the bunch.
  6. Maybe it's time for this addition to the videogame genre stable to start uttering that often resented yet ever-powerful f-word. That's "fold", by the way.
  7. The graphics are mostly serviceable, but the AI is all over the map. [Holiday 2005, 92]

    The weakest of the three. Graphics are slightly better then WSOP and WCoP2. Gameplay is very repetitive. The AI checks too often. The pro playercharacters seem just as lost as you are trying to figure the other players. One can never catch a flop. The AI calls you with bad cards and almost always gets rewarded. If you are a pretty good poker play then I wouldn't reccomend it. This game will only fustrate you to when your huge pocket pairs get beat out by horrendous calls. Expand
