bad poker gameFirst off what i liked was the graphics were ok but nothing special. The gamplay was realistic but not good . It seemed i never got a good hand. I remember once when i was playing i got 1 good hand out of 200. so to stay in tournaments you have to bluff A LOT to just stay in and keep up with the blinds.

Decent poker gameThis was a pretty decent poker game. There is an option to get help from your poker legend, but it's better to go with your gut and get used to playing like a pro. Don't think that you can just go all-in all the time and punk out your opponent. The A.I. is really watching you and it sometimes feels like they can see your cards. The online play (even today) is actually pretty active. I've talked to people that say that this is one of the better online games as far as poker goes. You can use your camera to make your character look like you, or even use your imagination to make your character look like something else. One guy had his looking like homer simpson because he had a large plush of him. It was pretty funny. My wife says that my simulation of myself looked creapy, it actually was pretty realistic for being a computer sim of myself. So if you like poker and you'd like to test your skills, this is a good pick. There's even some tutoring if you would like to learn some new tricks. It does take up a lot of time, and I've still not gotten through the whole series as far as getting the championship, but I'm still playing it every once in awhile when I want to play something different. There are decent achievements for every round as your playing through too.
