The game was fun, but it is too slow moving. your computer opponents take too long to act. Another thing is in the tournament mode, out of a table of about 8 only 2-3 are playing any given hand so it takes a long time to get out of one table to move up in the tournaments.
I rented this thinking it was multi player! Waste of time we could not get into anywhere to get more than one player. Not sure if we have wand problems or if this being a rental we are not able to get into all areas...surely with a 9 seat game you can add players....if I wanted to play by myself I would have played online.
If someone knows how to add on players...let know...
Chris "Jesus" Ferguson is contracted to train you to be the best poker player. He gives you inspirational speeches before playing each poker tournament. The gameplay is just like TV. A little table chatter and you wait and wait and wait some more for your opponent to call, fold or raise. Their is not much to the controls, so the Wii remote is not a problem. You play against both fictous and professional poker players, including everyone's favorite actress Jennifer Tilly. The game lacks online play, so it gets kinda boring as the game goes on. Winning tournaments to qualify for the Main Event at the Rio is the goal. The games graphics are average, but then again it is a poker game.
