    Poker Night is weak on the fundamentals of card playing, but it's worthwhile for several hours of comedy dialog. [Feb 2011, p.78]

    If you're going to play a simulation of something so easily done in the real world, then you might as well do it in the company of the funniest characters in gaming. [Issue#104, p.117]

    Poker Night at the Inventory continues Telltale's tradition of offering games that deliver a great story. You'll come for the cheap poker mechanic and stay for the humourous banter.

    It's a nice little and funny game for fans of Sam & Max, Team Fortress, Penny Arcade or Home Star Runner, but it's a bad poker game. Medium difficulty is too easy and in hard mode the game seems to cheat.

    On one hand, the game has energy provided from the fun conversations taking place at the table. And you definitely get more than $5 worth out of that alone. What kills Telltale's latest game is that, really, there's not enough diversity to keep people coming back ... at least not for more than a game or two when you're bored and have nothing else to do.

    Playing cards with some talkative favorite characters is great ... for about the first 30 minutes.

As a poker game, its mediocre at very best, the AI doesn't act very much like real poker players would (not to mention bugs, which are plenty). Overall, its a good deal for this price, but as i said, for the loot and humor, not for the poker. Full Review »

The AI knows what cards will be in play ahead of time, consistently going all in with absolutely nothing and pulling out a straight when the final card has been played. I thought I could just buy the game and get the items for TF2 without playing this piece of **** but that is not the case. Full Review »
