Editors' reviewAlthough this game offers a high stakes and addictive take on Texas Hold 'Em poker, we still don't think the demo restriction is generous enough. Similar to most poker-themed video games, this one doesn't boast mind-blowing graphics or sound, but they get the job done. Each player starts the game with $10,000, but since your computerzied opponents tend to be high rollers, you'll see large bets from the get-go. The game lets you disable the rudimentary sound effects, specify speed, and view the tournament standings, but you can't customize the table style, change the look of the cards, or increase your bankroll. The game's help files explain the rules but don't offer any kind of in-depth strategy hints for new players. Although the trial version now lets you play a full game with no hand limitations, novices quickly may find themselves overpowered and out of the game in minutes. Skilled players might be able to live with this application's limitations, but most others will want to keep looking.
