WWE No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker

Author: Juan Castro

It's time to hit the mat, portable style. We've been anxiously awaiting a demo of WWE SmackDown! Vs. Raw 2006 for PSP for some time now, especially since the upcoming PS2 iteration of the game looks downright tasty. We could discuss how popular and well-designed the Smackdown! series is, but there's really no need is there? Fans of the series know it's cool, and non-fans, well, they're probably not reading this article. So, let's just jump into how this sucker looks on the PSP.

In short, it looks great. And not just from a graphical standpoint, either, the entire package looks to deliver on its promise of offering a very console-like experience. There's very little sacrifice here. Smackdown! on PSP features every mode, character and extra in the PS2 version. Only now, it's entirely portable.
Capitalizing on the popular Texas Hold 'Em poker craze sweeping through the country comes the WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 PSP exclusive No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker mini-game. The last of the PSP Arcade Mode mini-games, WWE No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker features a roster of more than 50 selectable WWE Superstars and Divas. Each Superstar is equipped with a unique strategy, ranging from nervous, cautious or calculated to clueless or aggressive.

As a result of these different behaviors, each Superstar will play differently. For example, a cautious Superstar will exhibit a much more conservative style of play, choosing to play it safe rather than take many risks. However, a clueless Superstar may demonstrate an unpredictable and erratic style of play based on confusion with the game, making him or her an equally dangerous player.
WWE No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker offers two modes of play: Training and Tournament. Training Mode is ideal for polishing and honing skills, as it does not feature any blinds or cash amounts. However, those feeling especially confident should opt for Tournament Mode action. Unlike Training, Tournament Mode allows players to select the small and big blind amount as well as their starting amounts of cash.

Once a Tournament begins, six Superstars will be seated around a WWE emblazoned poker table and will be eliminated, one by one, as their funds dwindle down to zero. The last remaining Superstar will be named the winner. Frequently, upon each of their turns, the Superstars will display one of four amusing emotions: pleasure, anger, perplexity or calmness. The CPU controlled opponents will make use of these emotions in the hopes of psyching out or befuddling players into making mistakes or folding their hands. Players will also have the ability to make use of these emotions by pressing up, down, left or right on the D-pad in bluff attempts of their own.

WWE No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Poker can be played alone against the CPU or, utilizing the PSP's Ad-Hoc Wireless functionality, up to four players can join in for a fun game of poker amongst friends.
