Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Last UPDATED On: September 22, 2007

My new scores: FUN= 4 stars; OVERALL= 3 stars;

After so many enjoyable months of playing this game, I just played a No-Limit Texas Hold' em tournament hand, against a Cpu player, in which she checked the guaranteed best hand (stone cold nuts) on the river, when she was LAST to act (on the highest difficulty level of Professional). In my opinion, this is the kiss of death for a poker game! Anytime I come across this MAJOR FLAW in a poker game, I quickly try to unlock everything and then I sell it. However, in this game, since the Cpu only seems to check winning STRAIGHTS, it's not as terrible because straights don't occur too often anyway. So, surprisingly, I still enjoy playing it and can't seem to stop. I will also still play Omaha and the Heads-Up tournament mode to see if the Cpu players also sometimes check the absolute best hand on the river, when they're last to act. So far they haven't, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyway, I still think the game deserves a 4 star rating for FUN, but now, only a 3 star OVERALL rating (Amazon doesn't let you actually change the scores). Even though this major flaw seems to be rare (so far it's only happened with STRAIGHTS), and it even sometimes happens to real-life poker pros, if they misread the board, or their hand, it still annoys me!

Also, because the new 2008 WSOP PS2 game, is due out sometime in September or October of 2007, I would suggest you wait for that one to come out, instead of buying this flawed game. Hopefully, the new version, will be improved. I will certainly review it, and keep watching carefully for any rare bugs as I continually play it!

Just in case you're curious, here's the actual flawed betting hand, I just witnessed today.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will ruin your poker skills November 27, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many reviewers have stated the cpu play is horrible, only to be saved by running cards. I can give hundreds of examples, but here's the one that made me write this review. I raised 10 times the blind (you have to do these huge raises to get ANYONE to fold), I had AJs. I was called by a player with 7 / 2 offsuit. The ABSOLUTE worst starting hand in poker. I go all in when the board pairs my Jack the cpu calls and gets a 2 and a 7 on the turn and river. Notice that the all in call (virtually all his chips) was made with nothing. This is one of several examples. I started to keep track of the flushes, straights and full houses and the percentage is remarkable for the cpu.

Conversely, I found that when I had the nuts, the cpu would rarely ever call any amount of a bet. So you can't bluff, because you'll get called with ANYTHING and then lose, and you can't bet your nut hands because no one will call.

Thus, this game will RUIN your poker skills if you're trying to get better at poker. Try Poker Academy instead. Much more realistic cpu play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn Good Game .. for Fun or Learning January 10, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, so Im not at all one of those people whose like "OMG THIS GAME IS A 15 OUT of 10!!" Im mean lets be reasonable. However, I will say I would seriously have liked to give this game that 6th star.

As the title implies, this is definately a damn good game, whether your looking to learn the game of Poker(spefically No-Limit Hold-Em and the likes)or you think yourself a seasoned "pro" and are looking to hone your skills then this is a great game. Even if you are a "poker pro" you will definately pick up some tips and learn different strategies here, and as they say: practice makes perfect! Also, for anyone who falls in between the two this is still a wonderfully delightful buy (and at 19.99 right now you cant really go wrong)!

Now, personally as a poker player I would rate myself somewhere around amateur(I wouldnt say Im horrible by any means and Im no novice, but Im not exactly wearing any bracelets around my wrist heh) level. Also, I own more than a few other Poker and Hold-Em titles on both the PC and PS2. Ive got to say, in all honesty, this kind gave me some renewed faith if you will. I mean, no offense to any of the devs or whatever, but alot of poker games out there just suck(no matter what you're looking for out of it). I offer this as an opinion, and I mainly look to these sort of games to hone my skills and yet more so for the fun factor. This game delivers on both levels adequately.

Also, as far as just the gameplay itself, I was also pretty satisfied. I've played previous poker games with claims of "animorphic face gestures" or "player facial animations" and the such. Ill admit, you cant get picture perfect reads but you can definately spot players reactions around the table and pick up on there negative and positive reactions QUITE well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe 3 and a half stars... October 1, 2006
By GC
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start off by saying- what the second reviewer mentioned is totally correct; The first player to act into an unraised pot will raise 99%+ of the time and yes it is very inaccurate.

But beyond that awful flaw, lies a pretty good game. The commentary is maybe a little above average but is a real improvement from last years version.

Starting out from the beginning of career mode might be more annoying then hard because there are no helpful cheat/tutor features such as "always see winning hand" et al. That is helpful for a few hours when beginning because you gain some insight on how the cpu plays.

So how does the cpu play on the default setting? Aggressive, generally. Simply put, someone will reraise preflop with k4 even with a decent stack.

Trapping is usually a good idea on this game and without running into a lot of bad beats, the AI isnt supremely skilled, as poker is totally a human game. I think of myself as a hobby player although i have won some 1-5-10$ nl and limit tourneys in the past and in the first 5 hours of this game, I won the 18 man limit tournament, the 16 player heads up tournament and the 4 player home game tournament. Like I said, be patient and trap with strong hands.

One of the best features in this game is the myriad of poker variations offered; Hold em, Stud, Stud 8/b, Omaha and Omaha 8/b, as well as Razz for good measure! I enjoy all of these games and think they should be included on every game of poker.

30 pros are listed in this game but sadly some very notable players were missing. Left out were Dolly Brunson, Johnny Chan, P. Hellmuth, D. Negreanu, etc etc etc...

Despite having a limited replay value in the long run, newcomers and owners of last years game should seriously consider picking up this title for under $30.
