    If you have an interest in poker and you have Xbox Live, you will certainly get more out of this budget title than someone who only plays it offline.
  3. Ultimately a decent effort, but only because of its online play. The offline component of the game is simply too pointless and spotty to hold anyone's attention.
  4. The game's not perfect but it is leaps and bounds above what we've come to expect from current casino games.
  5. If you are resigned to playing poker on the Xbox, World Championships Poker is probably for you. Everyone else should probably spend that $20 on a deck of cards and a case of beer (legal drinking age assumed) and call your friends.
  6. You'll only enjoy it on Xbox Live with a bunch of friends that enjoy playing Poker.
  7. The limited ways to play ultimately causes the game to get tedious and the AI can't even pretend to measure up to the human element that makes poker so interesting.

They didn't do their homework on this one... Full Review »
