  • Summary: [WiiWare] Prepare to experience the intensity of a real Texas hold'em poker tournament. Whether you're a poker novice or a veteran, you'll enjoy Tournament, Cash Game and Heads-up modes with the simple-to-use Wii Remote controller. Hit the tables as one of six fun and charismatic characters, or import your own Mii character to really put on your poker face. Take on the world's most prestigious casinos, from Monaco to New York, and challenge opponents who won't hesitate to taunt or comment on your style, creating a very realistic poker atmosphere. You can also impress friends with wild poker parties, thanks to an online mode that allows you to play with up to five friends and create your own tournaments or join official Gameloft tournaments. You can even challenge random online opponents of any skill level. Even if you've never played poker before, you can learn all the rules and strategy with an Advanced Tutorial that teaches you everything from winning hands and betting to bluffing. [Nintendo] Expand

    Simply put, it’s ok, but it’s not great.

    Gameloft's Texas Hold'em Poker isn't the new high-bar for poker simulation video games -- it doesn't overcome the natural hurdles of translating troublesomely human elements of the game like the subtleties of bluffing, table talk and the like. If you get over that, though, what's offered here isn't bad at all.
  3. A poker game where you start off 600 Points down and can't win it back. Fail. [Nov 2009, p.104]
  4. As a single player experience, Gameloft's Texas Hold 'em Poker will provide about as much diversion as a good game of Freecell. The visuals are excellent and the game plays well, but the useless online experience and one-note gameplay prevents us from recommending this game to anyone but die hard fans of this poker variant.
  5. All said and done, while Gameloft may have had some good intentions with Texas Hold’em Poker – a family-friendly game of Texas Hold’em with online play to boot – I simply can not recommend this game to anyone outside of those looking strictly for a Wii poker experience.
