2.0 out of 5 stars Not A Good Game May 29, 2005
When I purchased this game I was hoping to have some reasonable AI, but I was dissappointed. All the players play the same; it doesn't matter if you are going against T.J. Cloutier or Gus Hanson, they play the same in this game. When the cpu gets any pair they jam the pot till they are allin. If they have no pair, they simply give up. This programming is way too immature for the serious player; however, the price is reasonable for the low quality entertainment it provides.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, but very basic July 7, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I downloaded this game because I had just played hold'em for the first time a couple of weeks earlier. I wanted a game that was fun and this one definitely fit the bill. This is an easy game to get started. Unlike other "trainers" there aren't a lot of options that must be set up (this is also a fault.

The AI is interesting. Unlike a other reviewers I could see a difference in style with some of the players. For instance, Phil Ivey almost never bluffs. TJ is impatient and will go all in at the slightest whim.

The early tables are easy. After a few hands I was able to bluff when I needed and suck players into going all in. The final table however, the players all of a sudden start playing looser. Where most would fold prior to the flop, at least 1 or two players always stay in sometimes up to the river.

My main gripe is the lack of true tournament play. If I lose at the first table I am not out of the tournament. Each game is a new table with new chips. The tournament is set so that the 8 players playing will play 7 tables. The purpose of the first 6 tables is to determine the final table starting chip amount.

Basically I could lose each of the first tables and still make it to the final table, just with a reduced chip amount. To me this is one of the downsides of the game. I wish the tournament gave you new players at each table and required you to win the table to advance.

All in all, if you are just looking for a fun game to play, this is a good choice. I have had the game for about 2 months now and I still play a few hands when I need to relax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best poker game out there April 6, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a lot of really bad texas hold 'em games out there (I've played a bunch of 'em), and this one seems to go against and the trend and actually is very well done.

It follows the Poker Superstars TV show. You get to play against some well known poker players - like Doyle Brunson. It looks pretty nice and follows the show's graphics, music too. I really liked the crowd aplauding my good hands.

The AI is pretty good, much better than average, and a lot better than some of the really bad ones I've played against. It definitely took me a while to win a couple of rounds, and still working on winning the tournament.

All in all, a pretty great game, glad to finally have a poker game that I like to play - perfect for laptop play on my business trips.

2.0 out of 5 stars Average at best April 28, 2005
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanted to play a computer game with an AI instead of online against other human players, a game that would both entertain and somewhat challenge me.

This is an avearge game at best if you take poker serious and want to improve your game do not purchase this game. It is for entertainment purposes only.

Major flaws in the game:

- Regardless if a player is called, his winning hand is showed

- It *seems* whenever you are raised and then fold the opponent will show his hand (see flaw above) and he will be bluffing you, however when you do have a solid hand and you call a raise you are 9 out of 10 times beat and they opponent usually has pocket pairs

- I'm not 100% sure but I think hands are not rewarded correctly. For example I went "all-in" with A-7 and Phil Ivey had A-6, my 7 was the 5th card to make my hand, and his 6 was the 5th card to make his hand, yet it was a split pot?! I could be wrong but I did a long double check to make sure.

I've only had the game 1 night but this is my first impression on the game.

The controls and flow of the game are also too involved and require you to hit way too many buttons to keep the game moving.

1.0 out of 5 stars High Stakes - Low Excitement - Not Worth the Gamble October 28, 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game claims to have all the big stars from the Poker TV shows, but it was missing many of my favorites. Besides, rather than being talking, interactive stars, they are just pictures that show up around the table. The REAL reason I rank this game so low is that it is devoid any of workable AI. I won several tournaments in a row simply by going ALL-IN whenever I had a decent hand. And, like others said, I could not detect ANY difference in the play styles of the stars. For my part, I tested out incredibly stupid tactics (like going ALL-IN EVERY hand whether I had something or not,) and easily won time and time again!

A game needs to take me away from my own life to some kind of realistic diversion. This game is not realistic at all, and it was no challenge whatsoever. Anyone who thinks they can learn on this game and then go out and become a poker millionaire, like their PR implies, is in for a rude awakening.

After I bought it, I saw a demo of Poker Superstars #2. I tried that one as well. You guessed it, the game really lived up to the claim of being "number 2," if you know what I mean.

Bottom Line : Not fun and not challenging. I kick myself for giving it any stars at all.
