World Series of Poker 2008: Battle for the Bracelets
Sony just put a poker game out with online play on their Playstation Network store. How come this game doesn't have online listed in the features or on the box? They used to have online games, why did they take it out? Thumbs down with no online.
The problem with poker games
The problem with poker video games is that its next to impossible for the A.I. to make the correct decisions, and switch gears during play. In the end there are always the characters who call all ins with Ace rag, who fold to any big bet, who play hyper aggressive, who call everything, but I have never played a game where the character could do all of the above at the right time. I'm a poker/ video game junkie, so I would love to get this game, I just know I'm going to be disappointed with it. There is too much skill in poker for anyone who has a greater than average knowledge of the game to play against an A.I... but alas, I know I will end up buying it anyways.
all around good start for ps3
for being the 1st poker game to be released for the ps3 i have high hopes for it. with over thirty pros and decent looking graphics the game and poker world seems to be stepping in the right direction. with the commentary by norman chad and lon macheron it will give fans hopefully a more realistic feel. i know being the very first poker game out for the ps3 it may have some flaws but hopefully over time it will become as great as watching it on Espn in the sense of it becoming that realistic.
