The last thing the world needs is another shitty poker video game.
For years game makers have been shoving bad poker game after bad poker game down people’s throats with no real idea of what makes the card game so compelling.
Pure Hold’em, an upcoming game for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, is different than its competitors in one major way:
It’s not really a poker video game.
It would be much more accurate to call it a poker simulation.
The team at VooFoo Studios has painstakingly re-created the entire poker experience with one of the most detailed poker tables you will ever see along with individual chips, cards and seats.
You even hold down LT to peel back your hole cards so there’s a little bit of a sweat to see what you have.
The game also offers most major poker variants including cash games and tournaments with various stakes.
It's clear the developers have a good understanding of poker as they even include basic strategy tips in the loading screens.
