    It is the best poker experience available on any platform and should not be missed.
  2. As with most poker games World Poker Tour isn't much to look at but it does look a sight better than the PS2 version.
  3. In the final tally, holding a PSP with World Poker Tour is like holding the video-game equivalent of the ace-king "Big Slick" - it's not a sure-fire winner, but you're likely to have a lot of fun playing it just the same.
  4. We're still waiting for the definitive poker game, but World Poker Tour is certainly moving in the right direction. [July 2006, p.84]
  5. World Poker Tour for the PSP retains many of the console versions' strengths and weaknesses, though it tosses in a few more weaknesses of its own.
  6. 67
    The commentary gets repetitive pretty quickly. [Issue 141, p.110]
  7. Poker makes more sense in the portable format - still, no Royal Flush. [May 2006, p.95]
