Now, the poker room is not merely monotonous; it's also very annoying to play. While sitting at the table you are dealt bad hand after bad hand and mostly fold, and watch the computer play. Realistic? Yes. Fun? Not one bit. What's worse is that you have to sit and listen to the other fake players talk smack at the tables with the same four lines of speech. You'll be wise to quickly run to the Options menu and turn the sound off. Actually, you'd be wise to quickly run to the store to return this game, and buy a game that you can interact with instead of watch.
