Where's my magnifying glass...

One of the worst graphics I've seen - I'm not running hi-def so maybe that's the problem, but even up close you can't read the cards, your balance, the bet, the raise, it's terrible. No way to change screen orientation either. Or enlarge the font, it's so tiny! And no percentages for your hands until late in the heads up play. Seemed to focus on Phil's videos more than actual play tools. You will find some active poker rooms in online play though, so you can all suffer together. Thank god for GameFly, i would've hated to have bought this!

Not great

I is a bit on the boring side. I guess if you really love poker and have a lot of time to kill, great for the retirement homes.

Game for the severely injured

The game has excellent graphics and a great concept, but it is meant for the guy with a broken leg who can't leave the house for the next 4-6 weeks. The gameplay is setup so that if you really want to enjoy the poker experience you'll need to spend hours upon hours playing day after day.
