    As far as I am concerned, Full House Poker is the jewel in Microsoft's House Party crown. Full of style, wit and excitement it isn't just the best console poker game, but the best virtual poker game ever.

    Of course, if you are interested in poker this game will certainly interest you, but for those of you like myself who have hardly played poker and don't understand the rules, I can assure you this is a whole lot of fun!

    A good game, although the online action is certainly more enjoyable than the single-player game.

    Full House Poker is well worth the time or in this case the past time. Full House Poker is a fun game for its single player mode or its multiplayer mode and beautiful whimsical graphics and use of our avatars.

A very nice implementation of avatars and fun and varied play. Many online modes. Only complaints are no Omaha or Stud, but that's pretty minor. Just watch out for the donkeys gambling 50k with 39 offsuit. Texas Heat is awesome as well. Computer AI is pretty horrible, but playing against real players really does help train you to be a better player. Especially if you're bored ever since Full Tilt shut down... Expand

If you are new to the ONLINE poker scene then you may be a bit frustrated withIf you like online Texas Hold'em then you will like this game. If you are new to the ONLINE poker scene then you may be a bit frustrated with actions of the other players. You will get the people who are too scared to play and fold on every hand. The players who raise/go all in all the time with or without a good hand. And my favorite the people who dont pay attention and get timed out every hand.

    The single player is fun but there are very clear styles of play for each AI opponent. For instance the aggressive player may go all in with $1,000 before you even get to see the flop. Or the timid players tend to fold on every hand.

    If you can be patient and wait for a good hand then the outcome is worth it. I cant wait to play the Heat shows. Just dont expect to be playing some super smart computer that makes good decisions.

    I love Texas Hold'em, and I saw the demo available, so I thought what the heck! There in lies the first issue, I feel that any game that hasI love Texas Hold'em, and I saw the demo available, so I thought what the heck! There in lies the first issue, I feel that any game that has multiplayer ability should allow each user to have access to the multiplayer even if only for a limited time. Other than that...the game has some upsides and was worth the download for the most part. I would really like to see a poker game like this that has tournament modes within the multiplayer in which you can earn MSpoints, and other prizes for how you play and place in these tourneys. I definitely understand there will probably never be the option of actually gambling over an Xbox connection, but there has to be a better way of keeping those types of players we all could live without. I want an experience that is not only fun, but actually helps raise the level of each players game, because in the end, we all know poker is as much about skill as it is luck. Anyone who has got their pocket aces cracked after a pre-flop all-in by a person who had no business calling knows what I mean. Expand

It is hard to find a real poker game because of the all-inners. However, if you like the soap opera drama....there is plenty with the on-line chat. Texas heat is full of glitches and the majority of the time you end up playing the bots. Don't waste your money. Expand
