Fair

Worthy of a rental for a rainy day

Pros:

Many different poker variations to play
Well thought out options (speed up gameplay)
Unique "poker tells" system (mini-games)

Cons:

Weak AI (better than WSOP CE though)
Not much replayability
Hard to find an online game

Overall, the reason I gave this game a 5 is because it does some things better than World Series of Poker Championship Edition. The AI is definitely better, although its pretty easy to get them to call your all-in moves when they have a weak hand. After playing a while I noticed they tend to get many timely river cards as well. The lucky charm and items that are purchaseable or gainable add a unique element to the game. Sometimes during cash games when a player goes out they will bribe you with anything from their car engine to a painting so they can stay in the game. I haven't had a chance to play any online games due to not being able to find anyone online, but the menus are easy to find your way through and there are even helpful tips in the options menu for anyone new to the game.

I would recommend this game to anyone looking for something different. It caters to both the poker veteran and beginner. For me, this is the best poker game on the market for the 360.
