Whether you are a poker veteran or a newcomer to the game, World Series of Poker is a good game to own on your PlayStation Portable. The single-player isn't all that comprehensive, but the online Wi-Fi multi-player more than makes up for it, which has been lacking in many poker games to date, including on the DS. At $29.99, you couldn't ask for a more reasonable price on what could easily be the best poker game you will ever play.

Si elle ne révolutionne pas le jeu de poker, cette version 2007 de World Series Of Poker apporte tout de même une meilleure interface qui profite à l'ergonomie de l'ensemble. Les outils statistiques sont aussi bien pratiques et serviront sans aucun doute aux joueurs débutants. Enfin, le mode multijoueur est un réel atout indispensable au moindre jeu du genre.

Wer sich nicht am grundsätzlichen Problem stört, dass sich ein Computergegner schlecht bluffen lässt, findet hier ein unterhaltsames und sogar grafisch überzeugendes Kartenspiel vor. Die komplett englischen Texte tragen zwar zur Atmospähre bei, drücken das Testurteil aber auf "befriedigend".

The 2006 World Series of Poker has come and gone, with no-name TV producer Jamie Gold taking the $12 million dollar top prize. But soon enough the WSOP Tournament of Champions will find its way to ESPN, and alongside it you'll find World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and PSP. Like the regular World Series, this is a series of tournaments where players earn points and try to make their way into a final tournament to take home a huge cash prize. Much like Activision's previous attempt to turn the World Series into a video game, Tournament of Champions does a serviceable, if unremarkable, job of emulating the event. This year's game does put a greater emphasis on its included pro players, and the online multiplayer is certainly a draw, but the offline play is still a bit mundane, thanks to off-kilter artificial intelligence and lackluster presentation.

In the end World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions is a decent poker experience for the PSP but one that has a few flaws. Being unable to fast forward or skip hands when you fold makes for an uneven experience on a portable system. On a console it's a little different but since games really have to be able to be picked up and played on the PSP the lack of this feature is almost glaring. The AI is another soft issue and in the end every CPU character plays the same which really brings down the difficulty level. There are multiple challenge settings for your career so you can tweak the experience a little bit. If you're looking for a handheld poker game to pass the time with this isn't a bad option. I just hope that you're able to look past the drab presentation of the game and focus entirely on the cards.
