Editors' reviewThis mobile poker game's plentiful feature set helps to compensate for its rather disappointing trial restriction. True to its name, the program allows you to play Texas Hold'Em poker against computerized opponents directly on your BlackBerry.
For a mobile game, we were quite impressed with Aces Texas Hold'em - No Limit's graphics; the small faces that the game uses to represent opposing players is an especially nice touch. Betting, calling, raising, and folding are simple affairs, but what really impressed us was the amount of customization options. For starters, you can change your bankroll and tweak your opponents' names, faces, and skill levels. You also can create new opponents from scratch if you want to fill the table up for a bigger challenge.
It's nice that Aces Texas Hold'em - No Limit keeps statistics and let you change the game speed for faster action. Strangely though, selecting the Save option when changing the settings had no effect--we had to hit the Back button to save our tweaks. That's annoying, but our biggest gripe with the application has to do with the fact the demo only allows you to play five hands at a time. Despite its flaws, we think any poker fan with a BlackBerry will find the game has enough merits to warrant consideration.
You'll need your best game as you go against the players in Aces Texas Hold'em - No Limit. The game has been described as having the best AI of any Texas Hold'em poker game available, with humanlike instincts your opponents bluff like the real deal. Dial up your opponent's skill level to see how good a player you can be.
No Limit Texas Hold'em is easy to learn using the same rules as poker, but only giving each player two cards and sharing five community cards. Even though the game is easy to learn it has been thought of as one of the toughest to master with the unlimited betting and shared cards. Version 1.2.2 is a bug fixing release.
