    This game is the best game on the market! It has the thrill of the poker room and it feels and looks like you are really in one. The things that make this game better than any other poker game are the gameplay, hand results, and graphics. If you arfe a poker fan, this game os a must have!

    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 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.

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

    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 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.

    The best poker game EVER! So cool to put your face into the game using the digimask camera. Fantastic.

    This game is very intersting, the ai is really fun to play against even on the lower difficulty. The online play can be slow but fun with the videos, and voice chat.

  1. The AI players choose to push hard with some strange hands that’ll keep you off-balance, but there’s lots to do in the single-player game, and all that fun playing others in multiplayer.
  2. The game's not a head-turner in the way of graphics and sound, and the AI can be a pain at times with some odd calls, but the Xbox Live Camera and multiplayer options still make this a game of poker worth ante-ing up to, especially if you're a poker enthusiast.
  3. This year's game does put a greater emphasis on its included pro players, and the online multiplayer is certainly a draw, but the offline play is still a bit mundane, thanks to off-kilter artificial intelligence and lackluster presentation.
