  1. 90
    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. If you don’t care about frills and atmosphere then you’re probably better off with a less sophisticated poker game, but if you can put up with a little bit of waiting around, World Poker Tour has a lot to offer.

    World Poker Tour on the PSP in many ways winds up being better than its PS2 counterpart.
  6. We're still waiting for the definitive poker game, but World Poker Tour is certainly moving in the right direction. [July 2006, p.84]
  7. Playing other people really makes for some exciting tactical play.
  8. With modes literally bursting from the seams of its UMD casing, exceptional AI, well integrated online play and all the razzle-dazzle of many a licensed game, you could do far worse than to shell out 20 notes to sample 2K's latest.
  9. 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.
  10. 67
    The commentary gets repetitive pretty quickly. [Issue 141, p.110]
  11. World Poker Tour isn’t a complete loss. If you want poker on the go, then this is a fine choice. Just don’t expect to use it as a training tool, or to hone your skills, since the gameplay more often than not suggests that the title should be World Bingo Tour. Fun and atmospheric at times, very, very frustrating at others.
  12. The career mode is well structured though, offering tangible rewards as you progress from the smallest table to the high-rollers, but it doesn't stop you thinking you'd be better off with a real pack, a few mates and a sun visor.
  13. Not the finest poker sim around but a solid and comprehensive effort nonetheless.
  14. Poker makes more sense in the portable format - still, no Royal Flush. [May 2006, p.95]
