World Championship Poker 2 stars seven real-life professionals, all waiting for a turn to fleece players of their hard-earned winnings. In addition to the title’s Howard Lederer, Greg Raymer, Paul Darden, Robert Williamson III, Clonie Gowen, Amir Vahidi, Annie Duke, and Matt Savage are represented by in-game personas designed to match their skills as well as their looks and personalities. Through a light role-playing-styled setup, single players begin as aspiring card sharks living their mother’s basement, and play their way up the ranks to untold virtual riches. The release also provides for multiplayer gaming, and this Xbox Live-enabled version of the game features online “Live Aware,” “Scoreboard,” and “Voice Chat” support.
