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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
