Governor of Poker 2 is an enjoyable poker game set in the Wild West, that offers more than just poker. There's a long campaign where you travel to different cities, play in various tournaments, encounter a variety of different opponents (including notorious ones), purchase buildings, and best of all, you get to buy new hats!

A big feature of real poker is the tells on your opponents faces, but in this game you don't see faces, just hats! In spite of this, the game does a pretty good job of giving different personalities to the characters through their voices and actions, and there are tells in the form of comments they make and other information, such as getting steamy when they lose.

A big part of the game is travelling to different cities and buying buildings, which provide you with passive income. At first you can only make money from playing poker, but once you own a reasonable number of buildings you have a steady income trickling in. The idea is to build up your reputation and take over different cities. You can borrow money from the bank if necessary, or sell buildings if you have any, and of course, you can buy new hats. New hats impart some personality to the players and allow you to enter new tournaments.

The gameplay is fairly fast paced, it's an ideal game for a quick poker fix, but I'm not sure whether the cards played are truly random and whether the AI cheats or not. Some reviews claim that it does. I'm not experienced at poker so I can't really tell, but as a casual player the gameplay seems decent to me, even though I find it pretty hard to win, even on the standard level. The Telltale poker games are a lot more fun if you want personality and banter, but for a simple poker fix, this does the job and is better than other poker games I've tried. There's no multiplayer, so look elsewhere if that's what you want, but it provides a good single player experience

The graphics are fairly basic, and low res too, but they're functional and pleasant to look at. There are free versions of this you can play on the internet but this version, the premium edition, provides more depth.

Overall I'd recommend this game for casual players, especially because of the extra interest that the campaign provides. Serious poker players may want to look elsewhere though.

Not the best poker game on steam. The game turn over is slow. There is no banter, little to no tells either. The game stacks the odds against you too much as well.

Good intentions, lousy follow through.

Skip it and go buy one of the poker nights at the inventory games instead.

A very nice poker game with good graphics. Lots of stuff you can do and the poker games itself are really nice and you must have a ton of luck sometimes, just like in real life. But i would recommend this. The only downside is that its 10 euro or 20 euro and thats to expensive. You can buy it cheaper on other sites if you know what i mean. If you want a more detailed version of this review, add me

Lets get this straight. I don't play poker or any other games similar to that in real life nor did i ever like the idea of playing. But:

+This game is awesome! Firstly i got it on sale for 5euro (Premium Edition).
+Easy to learn even for noobs like me. (Has a full tutorial about poker)
+Its not JUST poker..its poker with Storyline!
+Combines the storyline and buying stuff(hats for your character,houses for rent) with the thrill of playing a card game.
+Has achievements which even for me are fun!
+Time passes nicely

-No multiplayer :(

If you're decent at poker you will find this game pretty fun. I havent gotten too far but so far I'm breezing through the first city. Too bad there's no steamworks achievments :/ I've got tons of in-game trophies and awards for special senarios thatd be cool to show em off on my profile/newsfeed ect, oh well. I wouldn't pay full price but at %75 off this is well worth it!
