World Championship Poker 2 Featuring Howard Lederer review

  • Say hi to pros like Greg Raymer
  • Smart plays from your opponents
  • 8-player support
  • Unbearably slow play
  • Sleep-inducing loading times
  • Can't save on demand

The slow pace, poor voice-overs and lack of handheld convenience lends WCP2 a strong sense of "thank god it's over" whenever it's time to switch off the PSP - and no game should ever do that. The impressive AI is the main reason to buy this game, but we wouldn't choose the PSP version over the nearly identical PS2 edition - especially considering that the UMD is $10 more. And while it's great the two games share DNA, World Championship Poker 2 on PSP sticks too close to its console siblings to be a decent, palatable poker room.
