Yes, I grabbed this game when it was on sale for less than a pound. When not on sale it costs less than 4 pounds. And still totally worth it. I turned it on for a minute, just to play a hand or two. Got stuck for an hour. Losing 140,000$ in the process, and listening to some witty and funny commentaries. If you want to play single player poker(Texas Hold'em or Omaha), this is the thing for you. Even though people buy this game mostly for the free Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands items, you know what? I don't play TF2, I don't have Borderlands. And I still like to play Poker Night. Because it's simply fun.

I really enjoyed the first Poker Night. I'm not a big poker guy, don't have the patience for it. Doesn't help that my poker face is about as subtle as emoticons. So I don't play much. But I did enjoy the first game because I could fumble my way from hand to hand and enjoy the banter among the characters. So the games in this series live or die by the characters and writing at the table.
Unfortunately, for me, Brock is the only interesting participant. Ash would've been fun if they could've gotten Bruce Campbell, since that character is truly just him hamming it up at every opportunity. So what's left if I don't really care about the characters? Oh yeah, poker.
So, of all the available poker games, does this do anything different or better? I don't know, really, but I do know that the game itself is kinda sluggish. If I want to play a card game, I want it to be snappy, keep the game going. Instead it just goes about it's lazy pace while I dream of Brock leaping across the table and eviscerating Claptrap. But it doesn't happen, and I get bored, and go looking elsewhere for amusement.

It's one of the best poker games on the market. The players are from several AAA games, but the lines gets boring after the 20th time.
Great game with prizes!AlmightyNata | Aug. 30, 2014 | See all AlmightyNata's reviews »
This game revolves around many of my favorite games and shows. It also introduced me to Venture Bros, a great show, and poker. Witty dialogue and casual fun gameplay. Not to mention this game gets you sweet items for Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands 2, two great games everyone should try out. If you're looking for a poker game, why not try one with great humor. This game has character on it's own. And I'm not talking about the fan favorites here.

Poker Night 2 isn't a game for poker veterans as the game is only singleplayer and pits you against AI that aren't a huge challenge if you are familiar with poker. The idea of the game is to complete different challenges during poker tournaments, leading to a different player placing their bounty item down which you receive if you win the tournament. Collecting a bounty prize unlocks items for Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands 2.
If you play either of these games and enjoy playing poker I would recommend this game. The characters are funny at first but the lines they use and the different cut-scenes will be repeated often and can become irritating at times. There are two different types of poker you can play, Texas Hold'em and Omaha Hold'em.
