Activision's ante into the crowded table of 2005 poker simulations is based on the World Series of Poker, featuring the rules and regulations supported by the annual tournament and presented in the style of ESPN's television coverage. Virtual card sharks can play any variation sanctioned by the World Series, including Five Card Draw, Seven Card Stud, Omaha, and Texas Hold 'Em.
Players are represented in the game by a custom character, created using the same editing engine found in recent Tony Hawk games. In-game leader boards track all the important stats. Multiplayer competition between two PSP World Series of Poker players is supported through the handhelds' wireless communications. Single-player "Quick Play" and "Career" modes are also offered, along with an extensive tutorial designed with input from professional poker players. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
