After about 5 minutes of playing the game, you've heard all the dialog that the announcer has in his repertoire so it gets annoying quick. The feature of panning across the table to see the competition is kind of neat, but more work than it's worth. Also the computer can be very predictable at times. 90% of the time if you raise the blind to something decent, they will all fold and you'll get the blind.
i hate to complain about graphics and sound in a "poker" video game but they were both pretty lame. the game play can be fun and if you play long enough it can be exciting at times but to tell the truth, i would rather just play poker for real.....

Ok, not really. With this game I thought I could. It was about the 20th minute in and I noticed something. These cards seemed familiar. Like I had been given then before. Then I realized that they were exacly the deal I had recieved not 10 min ago. So I watched. And I remembered. And sure enough there were deals that were repeating themselves. Not just hands, but the entire way the cards laid out. I knew that if I dumped that 9 of hearts a 2 of diamonds was coming to complete my flush. After about an hour I decided that the game was broken if I can find the pattern like that. It's a fun game. Brings poker to the Wii. I just don't think it should rehash the same hands in the same hour. If you want to know about graphic and such read someone else's review. I didn't get past this problem that I just stated.
