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.

Poker video games thrive on offering players as much poker as possible, not necessarily good poker (good as in the level of competition, not in how it’s portrayed). Certainly, WSoP: ToC is a solid game from that standpoint. The next step that game makers need to take is improving and varying the AI challenge, so you get realistic competition that’ll test your skills at adapting and “changing gears” so you can succeed against a wide range of gameplay styles. We aren’t there yet, but hopefully in the next generation or two. In the meantime, if you’re into poker or want to pick up the game, WSoP: ToC isn’t a bad investment to get you playing—and remember that practice makes perfect.

World Series of Poker 2007 has some things going for it: namely the camera support for Xbox 360 and PS2 and a functional online portion. Stacked is probably a better option on the PS2 and PSP, although World Series of Poker is undoubtedly better than Texas Hold ‘Em, the Xbox 360’s only other poker game.

The World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions is a must have for hardcore poker fans, though maybe more casual players should stick with the Texas Hold’em download. Both are fun to play in their own right, it’s just the WSOP presents a lot more pazzaz and visual splendor, just not the kind of splendor you expect from an Xbox 360 game. If poker is your thing, then go “all-in”, but if you’re only marginally interested in card games, then you best fold’em and cash in your chips.

World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions easily ranks amongst the best videogame poker titles out there, and depending on what you're looking for, may indeed be the best. Its AI is generally very solid, the presentation is all-around great (even if the animations don't match the bet amount in any way), and it's set up in an easy to play manner. If you're looking for a good poker title, definitely check this one out.

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.

The game does allow you to trick out the gameplay as well, speeding up the game to near sonic boom territory and to have the computer zip through any hands that you fold. Doing this can dramatically effect your play so unless you are used to a rocket fast game, your money can go that much more quickly playing this way. Of course there are other options you can work with as well, allowing for a pretty customizable gaming experience.

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".

I’m torn. A part of me likes Tournament of Champions better than World Championship Poker. It’s definitely the better game if you all want is a quick, uninterrupted game without any distractions. But that’s as far as the game’s advancements go. The tutorials should appeal to newcomers, while experienced players will wish there was a little more to the overall experience.

World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions is better than last year’s edition, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement. It’s great that the developers were able to secure the all-star poker talent they did, but for the most part they squander the opportunity. The Career Mode is solid but the AI is a little too aggressive, particularly with a full table. You’ll see a lot of bluffing and a lot of bad poker decisions by supposedly professional poker players. The Poker Tools are a nice touch and playing online can be fun, if you can find the right players. That’s a big if however. I’ve yet to come across the definitive poker video game and WSOP: Tournament of Champions doesn’t change that outlook, but at $39.99 USD, it’s certainly cheaper than a trip to a real casino.

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.

I didn't want to learn, though. I wanted to play a video game. WSOP is a good way learn poker, but not so good if you want to win first and ask questions later, like most gamers do. That tells me that poker doesn't have the substance to hold up a video game on its own (unless there are 41 other games and online play to support it). If you look at Tournament of Champions 2007 as an aid on your quest to become the next multi-millionaire, then it's worth a little something. If not, dump the $40 you would have spent on it in the slots the next time you hit up Vegas. You'll have better a better chance of winning that way.

World Series Of Poker: Tournament of Champions 2007 does the job for a poker video game. Teaches as it goes and gives you all the tools you need to kick some but at your home games. Online gives you a more real to life feel that you may be used to but with out any real stakes at hand people tend to bet a little crazy. Until they can get the A.I. to act a little more realistic like the pros that are in the game it will never have that real feel in single player mode. But if you need your fix before your buddies come over, this is your game!

We're at a juncture now with poker games, where providing a decent online mode and a lengthy career mode isn't quite enough to sell an entire package. With games starting to step it up in the AI category, it's time for all poker games to get smarter and not rely on the same robotic AI routines that don't emulate how people really play. And as far as presentation goes, it's not enough to just trot out a bunch of pro players, some licensed commentators, and camera support and call it a day. There's no shortage of games with similar features on the PC, so it's hard to look at this one as anything beyond another middle-of-the-road entry for the genre. You won't necessarily go wrong by checking out Tournament of Champions, but there are smarter, deeper, and considerably better looking games available elsewhere.

As the first poker game for the Wii, World Series of Poker is serviceable, though the lack of online play and lackluster presentation don't help its cause.

Après Micro Application, Anuman Interactive, Telllale Games, voilà qu'Activision se met lui aussi au poker. Plus habillé que ses concurrents, avec sa licence officielle, ses graphismes en 3D, et un mode multijoueurs, est-ce que World Series of Poker (WsoP pour faire plus simple) parvient à titiller un peu la référence que reste Poker Academy ? Non, mais ça ne l’empêche pas d’avoir quelques atouts pour lui…

World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions 2007 Edition isn’t a bad game by any stretch of the imagination. However, there is very little in this title to set it apart from any other poker game on the market. If you need your Texas hold ‘em fix and can’t find a group of friends to play with, you’re just as well off playing a bargain title for an older system or any of a number of free online programs. Poker on the Wii can wait until a game with more features is released.

The game plays identical to the PS2 version, looks terrible, doesn't make use of the Wii controller, and costs more than any other version. We fold.

At $40, this game is 4x the cost of the XBLA version of poker, and even though here you get access to some cool features like actual characters sitting in chairs and the surprisingly well done digimask feature, I'd be hard pressed to recommend to anyone to shell our four times the cost for a game that is marginally better at best. With the AI never really adapting and learning from the way you play, advancing through the career mode turns into a challenge to try and NOT get nailed by a bad beat, all while taking enough cash from competitors to outlast the blind raises every 10 hands. Save your cash skip this title.

PSPVideo Game Talk
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.

Visiblement baclée, cette édition PC fait bien pale figure face aux éditions consoles. Dommage, car le coeur du jeu était plutôt bon. Espérons que le titre fasse mieux l'année prochaine.

Tyvärr besannade World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions mina onda föraningar. Poker gör sig helt enkelt inte bra som TV- eller datorspel. Det förlorar så pass mycket då pokerspelets främsta spänningselement, pengarna, skalas bort att inget hade kunnat rädda det. Att sedan Tournament of Champions är en svag produkt i de flesta övriga avseenden hjälper självklart inte. Visserligen är det kul att kunna använda sitt eget ansikte i spelet, men det är knappast något som kan rädda det från ett underkänt betyg.
