KyleTurner2The graphics are worse than PS1 quality, the core game mechanic is flawed in that AI players don't seem to actually know how to play poker, and the sound designed can be summed up as a horrendous collection of .wavs that teach you to turn the sound off every time you load the game.
ONLY play via multiplayer, and even then only if you're somehow all trapped in a pitch black room without a deck of cards.… Full Review »
TravisP.1This is by far the worst game I've had to endure in my lifetime. I have been playing poker for 15 years and I spend countless hours watching WSOP on TV. I feel I'm experienced enough to qualify my remarks just from my experiences in casinos. First off voices and/or little sayings during gameplay is irritating. Secondly and most importantly, the "AI" in the game is a joke. I have lost count on how many times I've gone all in before the flop with pocket aces and the computer calls me with only a 7/2 off suit. Sure enough a 7 7 2 drops and I lose. This is not an isolated incodent by far. I have watched "the pros" in the game make the most irresponsible calls that they themselves would never make. I've also noticed that the computer rarely if ever stays in if you do bet megarly to try to generate some chips in the pot. The computer plays as if it already knows the outcome and the only way to bypass the BS is to constantly save after each hand won (which are few and far between). The graphics are alright which is why I gave it as high a rating as I did, but otherwise I suggest taking your $20 and flushing it down the toilet...that way you can end your misery quicker. All in all...WSOP 2005 sucks!!!!!!!… Full Review »
AndrewB.8I read the professional reviews after I had already purchased the game. I must say that the reviews are missing the point. While the game does in fact lack heavily in the graphics and sound department, it is a solid poker experience. I truly doubt that anyone who even thought about picking up this game did so to see spectacular graphics and hear quality sound. I'm certain that they did so to enjoy a relatively realistic poker experience on the go - and this game delivers. As mentioned in other user reviews, the AI varies from poor players to great players, and in that way it does a good job of simulating a true table. Not every single player you ever play with will be highly experienced and make the best decisions all the time, if the game ran that way how much fun would that be?… Full Review »
