Summary: The dialogue and characters are a very nice fan service to four very distinct sets of fans, but the fact that I can't skip any of the dialogue that I've heard a hundred times is incredibly frustrating. Sure, the dialogue can actually give me a chuckle every so often, but it really is rather annoying after the fifth or sixth time hearing the same joke. And let me tell you. This game's difficulty is RELENTLESS. I've played about 10 tournaments, and have only won one.
Summary: This game is not hard to review at all, Its poker and for that reason alone its a ok game in my book; however, that does not mean I will go easy on this game at all. Valve is awesome; they are known for the Half-Life, Portal, and Left 4 Dead series. I just don't understand why they are still doing this, though. Team Fortress 2 is a good FPS and is really fun.
Summary: Im sure this game would be decent enough.... if myself and a fraction of the community this game has could even play it... There is no "we're working on it" message in the forums. And little to no support to help. This game was rushed and it shows. I dont understand how people could this is an amazing game. Most people buy it because of unlocks and after they get them its never played again.
Summary: I suppose you can't expect too much from a Poker game designed for a games console, but this in all isn't the best nor the worst. The thing that let it down for me was not having the option for multiplayer; although saying that it would probably be impossible to find an online game anyway as nobody really plays these games online. I'm a lover of poker which is why I bought it, but there are probably others I'd go to before this.
Summary: The first Poker Night game is pretty fun, but it is one of those games that didn't need a sequel. However, this isn't really a bad thing. Poker Night 2 was also really fun and I found the characters to often times be more enjoyable in this one than I did with the first one. I'm not fully sure why Brock and Ash Williams are in this game, but they aren't that bad of characters. However, it is really annoying that they didn't get Bruce Campbell to do the voice of Ash.
Summary: All this wasted potential on a great game WITH NO ONLINE GAMES. WTF WERE THEY THINKING? The game can't be played by yourself forever. The AI have great dialogue but are too predictable. I need to play with real people or I might go crazy talking to Claptrap.
Summary: Like any casual poker game, the quality of Poker Night 2 hinges on the players involved. So when the conversation runs dry during an already boring--and sometimes flawed--game, it's time to fold and go home. The multifarious cast of characters is the immediate draw of Poker Night 2. Brock Samson from the Venture Bros.
Summary: The unskippable dialog ruins the game. The first Poker Night provided a "talkative" setting. Now the dialog halts game progress and can't be skipped. There is on ~1 hour of content so it quickly becomes a repetitive, unskippable mess.
