  1. Poker is a lot of fun when played amongst good company, which is definitely the case in Poker Night 2. Claptrap from Borderlands and GlaDOS from Portal steal the show with their goofy remarks. But once you have collected all the goodies, you just want to seat yourself at a real poker table. [June 2013, p.90]

    It’s definitely more fun than it has any right to be, but its lasting appeal is seriously questionable.

    Undeniably funny and entertaining. Too bad it's a dreadful poker game. [Issue#232, p.83]

    Hidden underneath all the issues with Poker Night 2, there’s an enjoyable game. If Telltale manages to patch Poker Night 2 on the PS3 to a level where it runs smoothly, you should buy it, especially if you’re a fan of the characters features in the game. Since we aren’t at that point yet, hold on to your money.

    This game is broken on PS3. The stuttering and freezes isn't occasional. It is ALL OF THE TIME. Makes a slow game of poker even slower. For some reason it wants to save between hands and it will just stutter the audio. I think it saves between hands because it will also freeze indefinitely causing you to restart every once and a while. Telltale dumps some shoddy stuff on PS3 again. Not sure how you can screw up a POKER GAME. The dialog is hit miss on the funny but is hampered by a delivery on PS3 that is less than ideal. Buy elsewhere if you find the characters so hilarious you want to play Poker with them. Full Review »

    It looks like telltale pulled a Bethesda on us ps3 gamers and released a COMPLETELY BROKEN GAME! The game often freezes and characters stutter audio frequently. It's been nearly 2 weeks and there still has been no patch. Telltale didn't even acknowledge or respond to complaints on Facebook concerning their broken game. The only saving grace are the characters. Glados and Claptrap are awesome! Ash and Brock are alright but Sam is unfunny and boring. you do get a couple of themes which is nice. My original score would be a 5/10 but it is a 2 because there is a particular bounty challenge that you must complete to be able to try and win Glados's special item and it is impossible. You have to win a showdown with only a high card no pairs flushes full houses only a high card. This is nearly impossible in the game of Poker and the fact that the developers put this as a bounty challenge is both disgusting and revolting to me as a gamer. You basically are forced to spend HOURS And HOURS trying to beat 1 bounty challenge that's not possible. You might want to get it after a patch But only after patch and even then prepare to rage when you see the bounty challenge. Full Review »

    Decent poker game but the game freezes, lagging, loading and framerate drops makes it unplayable most of the time. Had it free with PS plus, i am glad it was free.

    The conversation between all the characters are great but get repetitives and there is no way to deactivated them if you just want to play poker.
