  1. Good varied tournaments, and its fun to see the pros in the game.
  2. It has a great single-player game to partner with the online experience. Plus, the Digimask technology is really showcased in this title, making it a must for Xbox Live Vision camera owners.
  3. Undoubtedly better than "Texas Hold ‘Em," the Xbox 360’s only other poker game.

    While poker doesn't give a great deal of room for manoeuvre, there's a lot of meat here for fans to chomp through. It's just a shame the marketplace version steals its thunder. [Issue # 16, p.96]
  5. A full-featured online mode and excellent variety of computer opponents.
  6. It’s great that the developers were able to secure the all-star poker talent they did, but for the most part they squander the opportunity.

    A frustratingly straightforward game to rate, courtesy of the fact that it sells for at least twice the price it should. [Issue 20, p.64]

    I never expected so much from a $29.95 game. The Poker Tools are great, and Lon and Norman make it easy to feel you're really at the WSOP.

    Poker heads will love it. Others will too. If you don't like poker you won't be converted. Sometimes its a little difficult to see Poker heads will love it. Others will too. If you don't like poker you won't be converted. Sometimes its a little difficult to see who has won a hand and there's no suspense or "revealing" of the hands slowly which is a shame. All round its good tho. And if you downloaded it during the "free" period you'll be laughing all the way to Gamblers Anonymous. Expand

    If you dislike terrible graphics, slow gameplay and annoying voice acting, do yourself a favour and buy a pack of cards and get your friends If you dislike terrible graphics, slow gameplay and annoying voice acting, do yourself a favour and buy a pack of cards and get your friends over. Ok, the less extreme option would be to download the xbox live texas Hold 'Em. It takes an exciting card game and dresses it up in a 3d environment... that would be ok, except for the 3D masking is pretty poor (your face will scan in nicely, but you'll have to live with looking like your head is hanging off by it's neck) you'll find the players constantly sneezing, YES SNEEZING! Why on earth did they put this in? Absolutely awful. It does have a variety of scenarios and tutorials that will give a beginner player a leg-up into playing a tournament, but the games go by so slowliy that I just went back to playing the xbox live version.. I'll give it 3 points as it does have a bit of depth, but it's ruined by shoddy presentation and sluggish gameplay. Expand
