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

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.

I really enjoyed these fantasy charactars talking about their adventures and making whole poker game feel more alive. Poker system is good, it's classic poker and you can play Texas Hold'em or Omaha style., but ifyou just want to play poker this game is not for you, it's frequently interrupted by chatting of other players and you can't do nothing but wait till they finish. So I recommend this guy just in purpose to enjoy the scene and atmosphere. Stories and statements are quiet repetitive, but what would you expect, when you are playing 156th game of Poker, just to make your account balance not be in red numbers.

Kinda funny and interesting.

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.

So, about a year ago (at the time of writing, anyway) I was up at about 1am on New Year's Day, cider in my glass and I was playing Poker Night at the Inventory 1. It's a quirky game, with colourful visuals, great characters, great dialogue and some neat rewards. Oh, and there's poker. I had never played Texas Hold'em before (to this day, I think it's the only proper card game I've ever played) and after looking up the rules and having the tutorial fill in the blanks, I had a good idea of what to do. So much so, that I bought the sequel to play more and, more importantly, get more items for Team Fortress 2. I'll say it now; Poker Night 2 is definitely better than the first PN. If you haven't played the first one, I'd recommend it, mainly if you play TF2 like me. Now, that's enough backstory. On to the good stuff. (This review might be a bit on the long side).

So, once again, you're back at the Inventory, playing poker against 4 colourful characters from various entertainment. The first PN had Strong Bad (Strong Bad), Max (Sam & Max), the Heavy (Team Fortress 2) and Tycho (PC Gamer Magazine). Now, we have Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.), Claptrap (Borderlands 2), Ash Williams (Army of Darkness) and Sam (Sam & Max). In my opinion, this is a much better cast. It certainly feels more balanced as opposed to the craziness of the first game. Oh, and did I mention that GLaDOS is the poker table and commentator?

I won't explain the rules of poker (the game has another tutorial for that anyway) but I'll list off the features. In PN 1, you would play poker, win different decks and tables and stumble upon a chance to win a TF2 item by beating the retrospective character yourself, which could often be frustrating. Now, you complete challenges to have a player place a bounty on the table. Win the tournament and an item for Borderlands 2 and TF2 is yours. Also, there are new tables, decks, chips and the introduction of themes. Apply all the items in a set and the Inventory gets a BIG visual overhaul, changing the lighting, the background and giving the retrospective character a tuxedo and top hat. There are also special cutscenes and dialogue that occur with these themes, both of which are quite entertaining. Seriously, the cutscenes with Steve in the Borderlands 2 set are some of the funniest moments in this game. More features include a second mode of 'Omaha' poker (again, there's a tutorial) and being able to buy drinks for the other characters, making them reveal 'tells' more often (basically, hints about the strength of their deck Yes, I said DECK). There's also a cheatsheet but I never used it, so I can't tell you much about it.

Finally, the dialogue is worth mentioning too, it's that good. It ranges from references, to asking others about their universes and some great humour (particularly with Claptrap). It stops the gameplay from seeming too stale and makes it more entertaining, even if you hear certain lines multiple times (I'M LOOKING AT YOU GLADOS). Now, the game isn't perfect. Some challenges may take time to beat and despite this, the replay value isn't that large. But, for what it is, Poker Night 2 is a solid sequel and a great poker game. If you own TF2/Borderlands 2, played the first PN, or both, pick it up for some good entertainment. 8.5/10

Even Steve could have won the game with those cards, and all he can say is "Heeyoo!"
*Steve cuts in* "HEEEYOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!"
SHUT THE F**K UP, STEVE!!!

Poker Night 2 is a nice little game, which you mainly play when you need to kill time. You can play hold'em and omaha against the AI. Unfortunatelly the AI is not that well. After a time you know how to outplay the AI very well, and with that the fun goes away. The reason why you keep playing the game is "Fan-Support", you do want to listen to your favorite gaming-characters.

Rating 7/10
