    Even if you dislike the poker, this game is probably still worth it just for the general humor you'll get, and it helps that Telltale can keep nearly anyone laughing and coming back repeatedly.

    If you are looking for a good poker game, then this is a no-brainer, but even if you aren't a huge poker player don't overlook this. The witty conversations and fleshed-out characters make this a fantastic little game, with very little holding it back.

    If you are fond of Telltale Games, have a minimum of familiarity with card games and want to spend an indefinite number of hours at the table with Brock Samson, Claptrap, and Sam Ash Williams, Poker Night 2 is probably the game for you.

    Telltale has taken decent poker gameplay, some gaming culture icons, and an entertaining script and wrapped it up neatly into an affordable little package. For less than a cup of Starbucks, it’s hard to go wrong.

    Opponents know how to bluff, they lure the player into ‘traps’ and despite humorous presentation things at the table can get tense. [CD-Action 08/2013, p.81]

    Poker Night 2 is exactly the experience you'd expect if you played the first episode. There's a nice selection of characters and lots of dialogue to keep you amused.

    A few cute unlockable cards and tables are nice touches, but ultimately the lack of more modes, multiplayer, or anything else to substantially mix things up doesn’t give this game a lot of legs. Still, for the low ante it costs to pick it up, it’s worth it for the jokes.

    It's certainly fun while it lasts. [Issue#136, p.113]

    This isn't a professional poker game with professional AI, that needs to be understood going in.

    What this is, is a poker game with these
    characters and it performs exceptionally well in that regard having said that the tells and bluffing of my ai companions have definitely improved.

    Unlocking each characters unique item is now based on a set of achievements randomized at the outset and the unlocks...unlock additional dialogue pieces and change the appearance of the game dramatically.

    Does playing poker with this line up appeal to you? then buy it. for the low price there's easily enough bang for your buck here.

    Do you like being heckled once or twice per hand? How about hearing cringe-worthy and unskippable dialog that stops the action, sometimes for up to a minute at a time? Do you like seeing you have a 100% chance of winning the hand, only to lose? Then this is the poker game for you!

    Honestly I liked the first Poker Night. This is basically that with the added bonus of being buggy and terrible.

    Everything you would want in a sequel. Although I am going to miss playing the first lineup, the second lineup is just as entertaining. Unfortunately for me, I am not a fan any of the Characters except for GLaDOS, but it hasn't stopped me from liking this game. Full Review »
