RobB.10Been happily playing this game for a while now, pretty much every night. When World Series of Poker came out , I ran to the store expecting something better. WRONG! WSOP is brutal by comparison, despite the 3D environment. Is going back to the store, without question. The arcade version is clearly focused on play, not graphics. The essentials have been implemented almost perfectly. A must for any hold-em fan.… Expand
MandableM.10oh come on people, alright it may be a little lacklustre in its appearence but for goodness sake IT WAS FREE!! personaly I have spent every waking moment playing this on live and it is superb. Its even worth the 800 points they charge now aswell. If you have any friends online at all then this is a must!… Expand
alexl8Internet poker, through the TV. Simple as that.
OK the system isn't as refined as many of the PC based systems, but it's just as addictive. Consequently I haven't played any other games since. Worth 800 points? Well seeing as I've already spent more time on it than all the other Live Arcade games put together, then Yeah. Its also finally spurred me into buying a headset so I can sledge my rivals. If you like poker, (and who wouldn't) then get it.… Expand
MatC.3I'm going to rate this as if I paid $10, since anyone from tomorrow on will... The game itself plays correctly. The cards are relatively readable, and the betting controls are decent enough. Also, the money in your account is attached to your Live login; very good! But there is one major problem with this game. It's SLOW! Very slow. You cannot preprogram folds. You cannot advance hands until all players press to continue. No auto-fold. Slow deals. The table view moves before and after every deal. Why? Why take all of this time? All I want is to play poker - not watch cruddy animations or wait for the guy who folded and isn't paying attention. Overall, I can only hope that you didn't pay for it. It moves just barely faster than a home game, doesn't connect often enough, only has 8 players at a table, not 10... Be prepared to be extra-patient when playing.… Expand
