World Championship Poker 2

World Championship Poker 2 for Fall May 10, 2005 - The sequel to World Championship Poker will feature the likenesses of eight professional poker players and it’ll even release this fall on PlayStation 2 and Xbox for just $20. More surprising is the amount of advancements Crave Entertainment and the developers at Point of View plan on implementing into their product. WCP 2 Game Features: 14 types of poker. Different levels of play. "Real Deal" for experienced players and "Power Play" for the casuals. Active tell and bluff systems. Third-person "TV" mode (including the popular in-bumper "card cam") or first-person mode to watch human and computer opponents more closely for signs of tells and bluffs. RPG-like upgradeable skill system. Likenesses and signature personality traits of eight pro players. Detailed character customization feature. Color commentary including player controlled taunts, bluffs and tells. Poker tutorials, as well as hints and tips on strategy. Dynamic one player game -- upgrade your pad and host online tournaments. Hock your stuff if you’re desperate for funds for the next tournament. Exclusive PS2 EyeToy support. Xbox Live and PS2 Online support. What’s particularly interesting, however, is Crave’s collection of professional level in-game players that should be modeled after their real life counterparts. Pros Include: Howard Lederer -- Known as the "Professor of Poker," Lederer has quickly become one of the most respected players around. Lederer holds 13 major poker titles including the World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour championships. Greg Raymer -- Raymer, also known as "Fossilman", was the 2004 World Series of Poker champion. Raymer defeated a record field of 2576 players to win the $5 million dollar first prize - the single largest cash prize for a poker tournament. Clonie Gowen -- Gowen is one of the rising female players who placed 10th on the World Poker Tour tournament in Costa Rica and then ended up winning the WPT Ladies Night Invitational, besting more experienced players such as Annie Duke and Jennifer Harmon. Amir Vahidi -- Vahidi was ranked 1st for 2003 "tournament player of the year," with nine no-limit final table appearances in 2003, including a sixth place finish at the World Series of Poker (where he has lifetime earnings of $300,000). Paul Darden -- Darden holds a World Poker Tour Title and a World Series of Poker Bracelet. He’s an active participant in the tournament circuit and frequently places in the money. Darden was also featured as one of the World Poker Tour’s "Bad Boys of Poker." Robert Williamson III -- A born poker player, Williamson waited on his father’s game at the age of five and was playing by age 10. Known for his Pot Limit Omaha expertise, Williamson won a World Series of Poker bracelet in that event in 2002. Matt Savage -- Savage is the tournament director of the Bay 101 Casino for the World Series of Poker. Savage continuously strives to maintain the high standards and integrity of the World Series of Poker. Annie Duke (non-exclusive) -- Howard Lederer’s sister, considered by many to be the best female poker player in the world [Ed’s note: Jennifer Harman might have something to say about that], and the top female World Series of Poker money winner in history.
