I wholeheartedly recommend this game as a great way to relax after a long day of work/school.

For the most part, the characters around the table are fun and have lots of personality. If you know their history, its nice to see these licensed characters play poker the way one might imagine. But even if you've never heard of most of them, you'll come to know them - and their interesting quirks - in short order.

Sam is conservative with his betting, almost achingly so. Ash is just as keen on bluffing as he is on raising the stakes - he *wants* the player to squirm. Brock comes across as more studious with his bets, but won't hesitate to bet big when he feels he has the advantage; it is fun to just *watch* Brock think. Claptrap is a wild card, and he knows it; he is fairly easy to intimidate and he seems eager to win the approval of his competitors. His failures - and constant excuses - will make anyone familar with Borderlands want to hug him....and then hit him in the face.

What makes the game particularly fun is that the characters seem to actually enjoy each other's company. The lines are well read and the timing of their usage accurately reflects the events of the match. GLaDOS is a perfect addition as supervisor for the evening's events - just as much as the other characters seem to like hanging out together, GLaDOS seems just as eager to be rid of them. The dynamic works extremely well in keeping the match engaging.

As for the poker itself, its pretty conventional stuff; no doubt you've played similar games with similar mechanics before. But the matches move right along at a good pace, and the "Showdowns" are enjoyably tense. These moments also have the funniest lines, in my opinion. (...Brock...poor Brock...)

In sum, Poker Night 2 is a presentation 'tour de force' with very competent game mechanics. If you like card games, its not one to be missed. Oh, and the price is great, too!

- More and better choices of chips, decks, and tables
- Great lineup of characters including GLaDOS, Brock Samson, and Sam
- Pretty good unlockables for Borderlands 2 and TF2
- Very fun and great for killing time (great replay ability)
- OMAHA HOLD 'EM IS AN OPTION
- The action has increased a bit
- Great conversations
- Some other pros I forgot about

Cons:

- Claptrap's ADHD

9/10. Not perfect, but I definitely recommend this to anyone.

I work at a casino and I'm so glad that GLaDOS isn't installed there, but it'd be interesting to see a massive and homicidal AI dealing cards in the table games department with the people at the table being Ash Williams, Brock Samson, a police dog, a robot from another planet, and me for some reason

9.4/10

I spent a few months acquiring parts and software for a gaming computer. It was my first. I put it together and marveled at its gleaming awesomeness.

And then I spent three days playing this game: which I could have played on the computer it replaced.

Because if you don't like playing poker with GLaDOS, I don't know what to do with you.

After playing this game for a couple of games, I think I've finally grasped how the card game 'Poker' works.

Every turn, you randomly click buttons on the table, hoping that the dealer tells you that you've succeeded. If you succeed, you are given an ancient and powerful artifact, capable of destroying or enslaving the human race entirely. I have used this to great effect by traveling back in time and enslaving most of an entire race, before I was almost assassinated in my sleep and forced to come back to this era to write this review.

Overall I give this game about a 6.8 out of 10, due to the amount of vomiting that has occurred due to rituals involving bear urine and anthrax. I heavily suggest this game to anybody looking to learn how to play Poker.

Interesting for a while with the characters' lines but will get frustrating when the game doesn't choose your best hand for the round resulting in false losses.

This game is quite funny. The commentary from the characters are hilarious when you know who they are, but beyond that, there's not much else. The game is poker and Texas Hold 'em, and it's an incredibly slow experience because of how much the characters talk. This would be fine if they didn't repeat themselves so much. Eventually it becomes a really annoying time that you only keep playing for the team fortress 2 items.

4/10. ( iv played alot of this offline, my time played is more like 40+ hours). edit: this games worth buying if u can get it very cheap on a sale but understand that after roughly 4-5 hours all up, what was at first amusing chatter is just purely annoying.

Poker Night #1 was a broken game based on the incredibly large amount of negative issue threads on the discussions pages and my own issues of the game never saving / sometimes being near impossible to open.

Well Poker Nights #2 works, and it has some nice features and i would really enjoy the game and rate it much higher, IF it wasnt for one tiny but incredibly frustrating thing that #1 has but for some reason they didnt think to include in #2. This feature being the ability to alter the level of AI character discussion that occurs.
This game is fun for a while and the chats funny and entertaining at first, but then you will find yourself becoming frustrated that they wont STFU and just play their hand, not to mention you will start to hear the same comments repeated after awhile. There is no button to skip their dribble, your just expected to sit and listen to it.

The game also cheats on the last cards draw quite often and the 1 card the AI needs despite it being incredibly unlikely they get it. occasionally the bs unlikely card works for you too but its obvious its the games programming making the unlikely occur for shock value and a flawed attempt to exhilerate the player. i understand sometimes in cards you get lucky / unlucky, but this game definately doesnt use real odds all of the time.

i can think of half a dozen equally good if not better, FREE & none time wasting poker games online. google online poker and click with your eyes closed and you'll find one, alot of which you will also be able to play vs friends or random people, which this game cannot do.

The Good:
* Great characters and voice work
* Interesting mechanics outside of the card play
* Decent if eventually predictable AI players
* Great for casual play

The Bad:
* Some conversations are long winded and repeat often
* Occasional strong language, so rare it doesn't seem necessary
* Grinding for cash becomes tedious as you learn the tells and AI
* Collectables are mostly boring and entirely useless
* Eventually runs out of steam

Background: Not a gambler but like the odd game of cards

Impressions: Good fun and often available at a budget price that makes it great value for a quick game of cards. Fun for a casual play when you have 5 minutes to spare but often find yourself staying for an hour.

Recommended for: Light hearted cardplayers who like these whacky characters from their own franchises

Conclusion: 7/10. Charmingly whacky.
