Despite the lack of in-game avatars, Pure Hold'em is a nice package for fans of the genre. It's a technically proficient game with great visuals, slick controls and a very well-done leveling/money system. That it's relatively devoid of any distinctive personality or humor may or may not bother you. Again, the adjective at the beginning of the title holds: it's all about the cards.
Pure Hold'em is an impressive recreation of the popular card game. It features a high level of polish, as well as a multitude of modes. Whether you're a beginner or a more advanced player the game is an enjoyable title to spend some time with. There are a few negative factors that work against it, such as an unexceptional soundtrack and a couple of missing features here and there, but this will arguably not deter its core demographic.
Pure Hold’em is a well-designed poker simulation that can’t be faulted in terms of practicality and design. It makes you feel like you’re there at the table, under the smoky dimness of a poorly-lit room, gambling for chips with a glass of whisky in your hand.
