There really is only so much you can do in a poker game to be honest. And this is clearly something that Idle Games Inc realised very early on in development. So instead of trying to tack on a bunch of new and unwanted features. They have decided to give us the poker we all know and love, but make it the highest quality poker game on the iOS store.

This without a doubt is the best looking poker game on the iOS. I think I may even go as far to say that it is the best looking poker game I have played period. A great deal of love went into to making sure this was a game that looked amazing.

Your avatar that you can create looks just so high quality it is unreal. You have a vast amount of options at your disposal. If you want to look like a regular guy then go for it. But if you want to be a little bit crazy then you can make your guy look like a shark, dog, or even the Grim Reaper then you can make it happen. As well as the avatars looking great the venues that you will be playing in have equally had as much time spent on making them look fantastic. In terms of the games presentation the biggest problem I have with it is that it looks so good it really is hard to go back and play a bland old poker game now.

The game play is equally as impressive as the visuals. Like I said in my opening there is only so much you can do with poker, but Idle Games Inc has gone above and beyond to make sure this is the most streamlined and fun way to play poker on you iOS device. You can play in huge tournaments at regular or turbo speed. So for those who like the drama and tension of a long game of poker that is here for you. And at the same time for those that like there poker in faster bursts you are also catered for.

The interface for how you play the game is very well designed and it is incredibly even to learn. Even for non hardcore poker fans it is easy to just jump in and figure it out. When you play a hand you will be rewarded with experience points that you can use to level up. And of course if you just so happen to win a hand then you will earn even more. As you are levelling up you will be unlocking more items for your avatar and some new backgrounds as well.

This is the best poker game that I have played. It is not that it does anything new, but it just does everything better than all the rest. And as well as being fun to play there are those gorgeous visuals that are incredibly impressive. This is well worth a download and if you can persuade some of your friends to get it as well you will have even more fun playing against them.
