Tournament Poker: No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Review

Developer: Eagle Games Publisher: Eagle Games
Release Date: N/A Also On: None

Shouldn’t have played that hand yesterday. I lost three hundred dollars. Never bluff with a 5 and a Jack. Poker seems to be an American pastime. Poker has been the most popular card game for the past 50 years here in America (sorry to all of you non-American readers). Tournament Poker No Limit Texas Hold’em seems to give the newcomers to the game a great experience, but fails at giving a worthwhile experience for experts.

Let me first say that even if superb graphics and audio were implemented, it wouldn’t have made the game better. I am also assuming that you know how to play poker, or are willing to learn if you decide to get this game. This is basically a game for beginners. It has exceptional explanations and many different difficulty ratings, so any novice can get good. The problem is that I thought it was way too easy.

Instead of being just a run-of-the-mill poker game, it has several other modes of play and options. The most noteworthy option is the ability to see who had what cards at the end. While acceptable in a real game if you are playing with a bunch of friends, it is unprofessional to ask or to show your cards to the rest of the players unless you have to. It may seem stupid to novices, but it keeps everyone’s strategy under wraps.

The only other problem with this game is that there lacks online gameplay. It would be amazingly fun if I could play with other people, but sadly, no such feature. What might be a problem is the replay value. It could be from 4 hours to 15 hours. People stop playing this game when they finally get better than decent at this game.

This has to be one of the best poker games for novices. While you won’t get that many hours out of this game, because it is not that hard to get good at poker when facial expressions aren’t involved, and not really a substitution for a real poker game with people, and the lack of online play, I still suggest a bargain bin purchase.
