One of the best poker games i have played however i believe it does not compare to online poker as your opponents can become predictable at times. The challenge of the game is very good as to where you are able to develop your career as a player and go for the WSOP player of the year and the main event title!
Very good and challenging story as to where you are able to play either all the tournaments available on the WSOP or just the main events and hold'em events if you are not familiar with the other types of the game, the less tournaments is obviously the easier option as you get more money to play with and it is easier to get player of the year.
Each event has its own challenge, you start off with a certain amount of cash depending on what difficulty you decide to choose and you can spend that how you like.
As you finish a certain tournament you may get invited to play a certain cash game hosted by a pro in order to make more money for tournament buy ins. Throughout your career you will unlock more high limit games at different casinos with different pros.
You are also able to customise your player to make him or her look how you want them to look, you start with the basic clothes and styles however you are able to unlock more as you go through the career.
There is a good selection of pros to play against on the game and each of them you will find in each event of the WSOP, however I believe that they are missing some of the notable pros in this game like Daniel Negreanu.
Don't think there is really much to say on the game play in this game as it is just poker. What i will say is that it takes a lot of time to complete each of the tournaments and the game can drag a bit sometimes.
This is where you are able to set up your own tournament or cash game.
When you create a tournament you are able to select how many players there are going to be, the starting stacks, the blind levels etc. And play your own custom tournament.
When creating cash games you are able to select a variation of pros to play against, you are able to choose which pro will play in each seat and how much to play for.
A very good challenging poker game and it is very rewarding when you do eventually win the main event of the World Series of Poker.
Being a keep hobby poker player i felt i had to have a game for my PS3. World Series of Poker 2008 wasthe one i chose, mainly because i managed to find a copy on special offer. The game plays as you would expect, the graphics are ok and the animations are smooth. There are different games you can play such as cash, and tourneys also there is a fun heads up ladder to play where you can play against different well known pros up to phil hellmuth at the top.
Dont expect the AI to be like playing live, though they are not totally predictable. I bought this game mainly so that i could play a few games for fun when i had had a few too many beers to play online! and for this reason i reckon it is a good buy. Much more fun than playing the idiots of the free money tablesa anyway.
The commentary can be a bit annoying, but there is a lot of fun to be had with this game overall.
