  1. The best poker game on the market. Not by much, but it is nonetheless. The career mode, quick play, and multiplayer aspects of the game all combine to make a nice little package for your hard-earned twenty bucks.
  2. Presentational quibbles aside, though, this is a really good game. A bit more polish (and by 'a bit' we mean 'a lot'), a few more career options and some recognisable licensing and this could become an essential purchase for poker fans.

    WCP2 features nice AI and a healthy singleplayer career plagued by many presentation issues and a lack of second year polish. There's also a run-of-the-mill multiplayer game.

    Grueling career mode will make you want to cut off your right hand. [Jan 2006, p.75]
  5. The game has its flaws, especially in the design and in some parts of the Career Mode, but it also serves up some mighty fine aspects that could serve the series better in its obviously-coming third incarnation.

    Every single time I play career mode and try to beat a tournament with 250 or 300 players the game freezes on me. I have bought two games Every single time I play career mode and try to beat a tournament with 250 or 300 players the game freezes on me. I have bought two games thinking that maybe I got a dud, but both games did the same thing. I will never buy another CRAVE game again. Full Review »
