With Poker becoming more popular amongst people it was no suprise that poker games were being released all over the place. Previously the only games which involved poker where on your phone. These games were very simple and basic which seemed to get extremelly boring and repetitive. By releasing a poker game on the PSP it would of attracted a bigger range of people to purchase the game and try it out.
It was no suprise that this game didn't come out at the £35 mark like other top games on the platform. Instead this game was £25 which I think is a lot more reasonable and likely to attract people a lot more towards it. If this game was £35 it would be up at the top with the Fifa games and so on. By putting it down at £25 people may be willing to give it more of a chance.
When starting the game you are given the chance to make your own player to start a career with. Like expected you can change how the character looks to your own personal preference which I think is a good feature to add. To start your journey you can enter very low stake tournament with the goal of working your way up to the top. You can even end up playing some of the big named players on the professional circuit which could be an added incentive to your game.
As a player you don't just have to stick to the standard game type which is most common with the game Poker. Other different variations include No Limit, Pot Limit and Omaha. My personal preference is No Limit as you can do whatever you want with no type of boundaries. You may find though once you played one of the other types that you prefer that instead. beware however you will not find as many games with the not so common game types.
When you sit down at a tablet to play your game you will be accompanied by a maximum amount of players. If your in a tournament with a set amount everyone will be on different tables and when people get elimated the amoutn of tables will also decrease. Don't worry if you think that you will get bored waiting for other players to make their move as you can skip. This is a very good feature to have and keeps the game exciting.
Overall I think that this game would be a good purchase for anyone who likes the game of poker. For around £10 as it is now it is worth a buy as I do think you will have a lot of fun with it. You will enjoy progressing yourself up the ladder of the game hoping to reach to the top.

The tournaments have a dealer, announcer and realistic gameplay. You can decide to watch the entire game, see the close ups of all the other players making their decisions of whether to chip into the pot or fold, or can instead just keep pressing the skip button to get to the next hand if you folded your last and want back in quickly.
The computer will not want you to win. If you are a fish then I bet you cant beat them. Definitely purchase this game if you are a poker fan as it is very addictive.
