  1. Free poker game with gambling cat picture! Bargain. Poker is free after all. [Issue # 11, p.104]
  2. The presentation leaves something to be desired, but the price tag – either free or for $10 – is totally worth it for those who want some casual fun in their Xbox 360 rotation.
  3. It feels cheap and tacky, missing things you'd hope for and things you'd expect, and the single player mode is terrible. Still, try as they might, they've not managed to stop poker being great fun, especially with friends.

    If it remained free, I'd recommend it, but at almost ten dollars, it's a losing bet — single or multiplayer.
  5. Even though it will satisfy anyone’s need to play a few good hands of Texas Hold ‘Em poker, its presentation is boring and it’s multi-player mode is bug ridden – leaving you with a half-made game.
  6. Texas Hold 'em does the barest of bare minimums to make a playable game of Xbox Live Arcade poker.
  7. 22
    A rather horrible game. Something this simple being so poorly designed is asinine.
