I expect the game'sA bit rough around the edges, but that's to be expected with such a small team and on such an amazingly limited budget. I expect the game's post-launch support to address that. A better way to say it is that the game is a miracle considering the depth of its content and given its small team and minuscule budget. I still have a bit to go, but I have seen enough content and played around with the game's system enough to rate this an absolute success. If you enjoy CRPGs, this is a "can't miss" for you.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.8Apr 30, 2013Admittedly, not having multiplayer kills replayability past a certain point, but do you know what has multiplayer? Every single other pokerAdmittedly, not having multiplayer kills replayability past a certain point, but do you know what has multiplayer? Every single other poker game out there. If that's the jones you need, there are a thousand ways to go get it. Not every game has Poker Night 2's personality, and as Jules Winfield would tell you, personality goes a long way.
In lieu of multiplayer, what you have are five great characters and deep amounts of barks and conversations between various combinations of them. Despite what the reviewers said, dialogue repetition is not that big a problem. There are only so many ways to say "check" and all in." What amazes me is that I've played this game for about thirty hours now, and as recently as last night, I saw some one-liners and conversations that I hadn't yet.
The call for multiplayer is misplaced. It's not that kind of party. My only suggestion for future games would be the option to get up and walk around...explore the room, play some of those arcade machines seen in "Poker Night 1", etc. etc. "Poker Night 2" is a "through the looking glass" game where your most ridiculous gaming fantasies get dragged into reality and forced to play cards. I don't even like poker, but I love this game.… Expand

This includes the four DLC, which combine to form their own unique, compelling story. Be sure to purchase the GOTY edition for the full experience. Props to Obsidian and props to Bethesda for handing the reins back to the franchise's creators.
It would get full marks alone for the merciful lack of metro tunnels.… Expand
