Earlier this year I played World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions 2007 and I thought that game was pretty bad. That is until I played World Championship Poker: Featuring Howard Lederer - All In. The people in this game don't look like actual people, and when they do move they often interfere with poker table causing parts of their body to disappear. I would give graphics a 1. When I'm at the table playing a hand I often hear an annoying laugh that makes me wonder what's so funny. The laugh is often random, and so are the computers tauting. The voice acting is off cue. I would give sound a 4. Controls bother me more then the graphics do. From the moment the game started I was complaining about the controls. The game doesn't use the wiimote as a pointer at all. The option to point at the menu choice I would like would have been a small addition to make this game a bit better. I got over that small mishap and started the career mode. It did not get any better. I had the hardest time trying to navigate around the map to find my next poker game. When I wanted to go left, I would end up scrolling up. Very frustrating. To call, check or raise you use the A button, and to fold you use the B button. During game play I would find my self accidentally folding a flush, or calling by mistake.. That could be blamed on me probably, but It would be more efficient if you could either point at your choice, or have you choose action with a menu. I would give Controls a 2. If your a younger person, and had more patients then I do you might play this game for a longer period of time. If your a poker enthusiast I would recommend World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions 2007. I would give this reply value a 3

Gameplay: Boring
Difficulty: Easy
Audio: Bad
Controls: Good
Camera: Good
Length of Play: Minutes
Replay Value: Low

If you want to play a poker game on the console then this one has the features you want; it improves drasticly over the Series version (not saying much). After all it is a boring type of game to play.
