Summary: As far as poker goes, it's accurate. As far as poker with characters go, it's great. Stories get repetitive 12 hours in. Despite the cartoonish looks, this isn't a game you want your children to see or hear...
Summary: When I bought this game, I never really played the Sam and Max series, nor do I know that character in the blue shirt. However, I HAVE played Team Fortress Two and have been a fan of homestarrunner ever since back in the good ol' days. This game has no frills to it, it's just a casual poker game. The graphics are great, and the writing is spot on. If you enjoy entertainment that breaks the 4th wall, this is it. It's casual, it's fun, and their banter is entertaining.
Nothing like poker night with some famous characters!

Summary: I love this game, the best thing about it is that it makes you feel like you are part of the game and having an authentic poker night with some famous characters. This one and the sequel are equally great and if you're into poker games, check them out.
Summary: Great, fun game with some amazing characters at the table with you. The interactions do become redundant, but even if you play to get most of the trophies, it won't take terribly long to get done.
Summary: When you think of poker you usually think of a game where you are sitting around with your friends trying to outsmart each other and having a good time with great conversation. The folks over at Tell Tale Games decided to release their first masterpiece which was Poker Night at the Inventory. You took on the role as the player entering into a high stakes poker tournament as you tried to be the last one standing.
Summary: There is no way in any acid fueled mind trip that this game deserves a 5 star rating. The play is painfully slow, the player conversation is inane and repetitive after just a few rounds, and there is no multiplayer. The only reason to play this game would be for the unlock-able downloads, other than that there is nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing redeamable about this mind-numbingly turgid mess that would justify playing it, not even if it was free.
