The saving grace for this game for me is that you can create your own character, which is really fun. The in-play graphics along with this feature make you feel like you are playing The Sims: Poker.
Downside...is that outside of play, the graphics look absolutely horrible. I don't know what they were thinking. It looks like a game from 1992. They use like 5 flourescent colors and menus/pictures that look like they were made on Microsoft Paint. I have no idea why they would do that.
I own the game. I bought it in the store for 20 bucks used. It's the only way to make it worth it.
I was expecting a card game sort of like Tx hold 'em in the arcade. I did understand that you would start from nothing and rise to fame, i just didn't realize that ai could move s-o s-l-o-w. I then changed the setting to fast and holy smoke it was my turn again. I never moved it to turbo because I thought the Xbox might explode. And the graphics remind my of a SIM type animation. I just think I wasted a mailman's time trying to get this game here. I'll stick the arcade hold 'em.
Overall the game was pretty boring, i only wanted to play no-limited texas hold-em but the game contained all sorts of card games. Nobody ever played online, and the interface was just very elementary.
