Stacked lacks the sizzle and flash of the real Las Vegas, but it does provide a highly competitive poker game. Beginners will need help, because they face off against some impressive computer opponents. A table full of Stacked bots feels like a table full of real people. Players may be able to sniff out some bots that easily fold in the face of a big bet, but others are a bit more unpredictable -- it's only when gambling against other real people online that players will encounter crazy nonsense play.

Despite the solid poker, Stacked falls flat in presentation. The game only offers a few casinos and fewer than 20 avatars to choose from. The audio doesn't help matters: Characters repeat canned phrases, and there's little music. The graphics are also disappointing: When characters leave the table, they stand up, fade to black, and then pop out of existence, and the amount of chips shown in front of a player has no relationship to how much money they actually have.
