  • Summary: In World Series of Poker 2008: Battle for the Bracelets, players challenge over 30 of the world’s top poker champions. With intense heads-up tournament play, expansive poker tutorials, and strategy clips from Phil Hellmuth's Ultimate White to Black Belt Course, players can learn from the very best in the industry and take on all opponents in real-world locations such as Las Vegas and New Orleans. The game features Phil "The Poker Brat" Hellmuth Jr. -- owner of a world record eleven WSOP bracelets -- in a special Beat The Brat Heads-Up mode and thrusts players deep into the high-stakes world of tournament poker to face off against other A-list pros such as Johnny Chan, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, and Mike "The Mouth" Matusow on the quest to win the championship bracelet for the $10,000 Main Event and over $60MM in total prize money.

    I'm going to have to say that Battle for the Bracelets is probably the best poker game developed to date, if not simply for the features and extras available in this iteration of poker simulations. Through six weeks of WSOP play, you are able to compete in every type of game that the Series has to offer currently (the actual number and type of events change slightly each year in the real world WSOP). The time frames are accurate for the individual events, meaning if you really want to compete in a $1500 buy-in no-limit Texas Hold Expand

    definatly the best poker game out there. only gave it an 8 because there is still room to grow. better intelegence is always a factor. and lets get some tells... how they talk, where are they looking during action, more and better sound bites that actualy might give you more information on what they hold.
    also better control on how your character looks, and forget the personalized rooms, spend the extra time saved on improving AI, sound bites and graphics.
