World Series Of Poker Game
If you are looking for the perfect combination of the today’s favorite past times for the 15-45 year old male, then the World Series of Poker game is the perfect find for you (it’s the perfect find for any female interested in the activities too, but let’s face it, the numbers are slightly more tipped in favor of the guys when it comes to these two pursuits).
The WSOP video game was an instant hit among those who love both poker and arcade games, as it provided a seamless integration of the video game with the biggest event in the poker world. It’s a game that is incredibly vast in its concepts, as it does a great job of simulating the real life environment of the World Series of Poker, from the screenshots of Harrah’s Casino to the simulations of real life poker pros. It’s really one of the best simulated card games that has ever been invented, and you will get a real sense that you’re right in the action with this game, and this is certainly not the only review that will tell you so.
The video game was first released in 2005, and was originally only designed for play on the Xbox. Versions that were compatible with the PC, the Nintendo Game Cube, and Play Station quickly followed. The only platform excluded from the game was the Mac, and sadly Mac users are also excluded from the popular sequel to the World Series of Poker game, World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions. The sequel was designed to be played on PC, Nintendo Wii, Playstation Two, X-Box 360, with rumors that it can also be played on PS3.
One of the great things about most of those platforms is that with a hook up, you can play them any time and anywhere against opponents from all over the world. Unlike shoot em up games, poker relies mostly on your innate skill, so you don’t have to play the game for hours in order to get to the level your competition will be at (note, we mean the video game!). The game has some built in resistance to cheats, but you should be aware that as with all video games there are cheats available, so the playing experience that you find when hooked up online might not be an actual replication of what it could be if everyone was on the same field.
Just like in the real life World Series of Poker, the main event of the World Series of Poker game is the Texas Hold ‘em, no limit tournament. This tournament can take hours to complete even while playing solo, although the game does include options to speed up play. Any review will tell you that this great game is as close to the real life WSOP as you are going to get, and it’s well worth the time it takes to play.
