Presentation is key to WSOP 2008. The menu designs, which are your primary interface throughout the game, are slick and easy to follow. The main screen follows a similar layout to television broadcasts, which gives the game a sense of authenticity. This is further pushed along by video packages that introduce each tournament. Topping it all off are the players. The presentation is complemented by a decent amount of voicework. In addition to running commentary throughout tournaments, many of the real-life players featured in the game provide voicework for comments.
As good as the game looks and sounds, there are a few minor issues that crop up. Players look a little too plastic, which lends a certain "creepy" quality to the game. Also, commentary can sometimes stutter or behave like commentary in any sports game.
