Summary

Poker is a genre of game that we have seen many times and in many iterations over the years. Poker Club is probably one of the most realistic games to date. It goes full throttle with the game using a top-down view with all the players being shown as just their hands, this means it looks like the real thing to the glancing eye, and when you mix in that you can change gestures and resting stances it feels like an alive game. The actual Poker part is solid with many tables and tournaments to play you will never not have anything to play, throw in the constant stream of real players and you have the definitive Poker experience. It will be daunting and kinda boring for a new player looking to break in as its a very text-based for tutorials, seasoned players can jump in and love the rich tapestry of menus that is Poker Club.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
