I am an avid poker player and had hopes that one of the 2 new poker games would be playable...how sadly mistaken I was. The cartoonish / gameboyesque graphics on the loading screens irritated me. It seems that "The professor" and his fellow pros were only concerned with how their characters look. Creatable characters look horrible. The computer AI is just another problem with it. Unless you go to turbo mode you have to play the stupid bluff mini-games and for the wrong reasons.(ie) Dealt pocket jacks out of position and called a raise pre-flop and was forced to play a bluff game??? Please don't bother renting this game. When I saw the keep it price at nearly $20 I figured hmmm i will most likely buy this....till it arrived not worth $1... Hope this helps

the game was boring, repetitive, graphics completely uninteresting, AI just as bad, and just like too many other "casino" type poker games you can pretty much count on a good hand when you're about to go broke. it lets me know that there's nothing random about the card drop.
i can't understand why a game designer would spend the time and money to create such a game and not make it online multiplayer.
