World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions
Pure Texas Hold 'Em
Career mode in WSOP: TOC has only Texas Hold 'Em. If this is your best, and/or the only variety of poker you know, then it could be your game. However, if you're the type who prefers some or all of the other choices of HORSE (Hold 'Em, Omaha, Razz, Stud, Eight or Better), then your only choice to play these varieties is outside of career mode, either in quickplay or tournament (neither of which offers rewards for progress). The lack of poker varieties in career mode make it repetitive. You have to earn a certain amount of points during circuit events within four different locations to finally unlock the "Tournament of Champions", which is, again, the dreaded Texas Hold 'Em. The ONLY variety in the game is to choose either Limit, Pot Limit, or No Limit. In reality, the WSOP and its circuit events is all types of HORSE varieties. The one thing that Activison got right is the licensing of characters. Also, the animated cutscenes require their own loading period, and are done poorly.
