Lots of fun, even though it takes forever to finish a tournament. Bring your A game, the computer players don't mess around, it you want to win you have to play smart. Quality graphics with a real poker room feel.
And I've tried to play almost everyone that has come out for the Xbox to date. The interface is good. Wish there was a little more control on the way you raise only because the amount accelerates too fast for my liking.
The AI is somewhat realistic. The only flaw I've seen is that it will almost never raise preflop. You can lay down bluffs and trap the AI like a real person which is something lacking from the other games I've tried.
Graphics are good but I don't ask for a lot from a poker game in that department.
The down fall is that it's just a poker game. Unless you are a die hard poker player, this game will get old quick. And if you are really into poker, you would probably be more inclined to play for real money.
You know i have played every poker game that has come out for the x box and i got a say this is quite possibly the worst one ever. It just drags on and on and on and on. I will admit there are a couple good things about this game like the fact that you have to actually remember your hole cards. Instead of them always being on the screen, you have to lift them so everyone on the table knows you forgot. But other than that it really doesn't have any redeeming qualities. Lack of character design options, horrible menus in the on line portion(not even a clue as to how many people are already at the table). I should have known better than to expect something good from anything that MTV got its hands on!!!!!!!!! You know that excludes you Napoleon!!! For as many delays as this game had and it still not being ready, well that's just sad.
