just good poker, with realistic people playing along side of you.
With this game, you start off as a protege of Chris "jesus" fergeson, and you follow his advice through tournaments and WSOP invitational events, as well as heads-up play verses some of the best (and jennifer tilly, i guess, as well).
One of the more redeeming factors about this game was that for once, without a silly game on the side, i was actually able to intimidate the computer players. Based on their verbal responses, they said things like "phew....not with how you're playing today. I fold." that's absolutely incredible to me, considering i had been attempting to play to just that end. my previous strong calls had actually caused the computer to fold.
Also, in the tournaments, Mr. Fergeson has various bits and pieces of advice. Such as, when he tells you that a certain person isn't going to let you steal the blinds, they really aren't. you better have the cards to call, because that person, should they choose to stay in the pot in the first place, isn't going to give up even a small amount of chips very easily.
a fun side note is that for once, you can actually play ad hoc with other players directly, without having to go through a silly internet server or having to be near a wireless access point. just two friends with psp's, and a fully charged battery (gotta love that built in wireless), and you are off to good poker fun.
overall, the game is incredibly impressive, considering the caliber of poker games that we have already seen (or rather NOT seen) on the market until today.Read more ›
Although this one also could have used some parts already integrated in the game to really make it more fun (the custom poker basement should have been an interactive part of the game, playing poker I mean, not just playing doll house....)
But as for the structure and level of competition, it rocks.
there almost seems to be no happy medium between game speeds. slow is WAY too slow with WAY too much chatter. medium is still very slow. and fast is ludicrous speed. also, there isn't much character customization available.
as for realism, i'd say no. "jesus" plays a hold'em or fold'em game with you where he gives you thumbs up or down on starting hands. if you follow his advise, you'll probably do well at a real table with pros (i don't know, never played with pros). but on this game, you'd be folding about 39 out of 40 hands dealt. and then, you'll get odd thumbs up for 6 5 off-suite or 7 10 off-suite. i know the amount of the blind has a lot to do with whether a hand is playable or not. that's normal. but i'd kick 6 5 off-suit all day long and not feel bad about it.
another problem is there's very limited play available when you first start. the first game you play is a home game. win or lose, you move on to a real tournament of 4 games to play; limit or no limit @ $500 entrance fee or limit or no limit @ $1,500 entrance fee. all other games available earn you nothing in money or rank as far as i know.
now the game does have a much nicer interface. it's visually appealing.Read more ›
I have won about 3 tournaments in this game, but believe me, they're hard. I highly recommend it.
P.D. There's plenty of tournaments and if you play all of them, you advance to next year's.
One minor flaw, the "ambience" sound sucks. Its a repetitive 5 second noise, with the same pots in the "kitchen" falling over, and over again. I just turn it off.
