Shuffle Up and Deeeaalll!
Stacked's tagline is "Poker. Raised." and though there's not much to improve on, it does feature a patented "Poki AI" which detects player tendencies and adapts accordingly. The game also features an online mode so, if by chance you actually find people taking advantage of the Playstation 2's online capabilities, you can check and raise other poker fiends from around the country.
It might just be a better idea to gather up some local friends for a weekly game, but if you're willing to give Stacked and its cabal of poker celebs (like Josh Arieh, Jennifer Harman, Erick Lindgren, Carlos Mortenson, Evelyn Ng and David Williams)a chance, then Stacked will be waiting for you on store shelves this week.
