The graphics looked a little rough at some points, but the animation was pretty good. Touch up the graphics and I'll be looking forward to the next installments.
Actually good poker games are few and far between, and while this one does have a few shortcomings, Poker Simulator is a good way to spend a few hours of risk-free gambling. Also, for once, it's a game that has a Mac variation - something I've literally never seen before in any type of gambling game. The variety of opponents to play against lets you keep the game fresh for quite a long while, since each has a slightly different play style. You can also change the setting where the game is to take place, and can go from something as normal as the inside of an old parlour to a medieval castle. One can also add and play their own music with the game, so if the default sounds start grating, there's always another option. Graphics are decent for a budget title, with obvious extra ime having been spent on the animations for the opposing players, which makes trying to call their bluffs quite enjoyable. They could be trying to help you out by actually being nervous, or the AI is really just playing you. The game can be quite long, and has tournaments as well as a campaign with coaching if one so desires. Poker Simulator tries its best to include players new to this type of game, and succeeds admirably. This is easily something I can recommend.
I like poker, but this game isn't good enough for me. Graphics are kind of lame and so does the music. Gameplay is dissapointing. I thought this game was going to be better. I had problems running this game on Windows 7.
