One of the main reasons why people bought Poker Night 2 is due to the loot available for Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands 2. While the items you get are certainly worth it, virtual goods aren't the only reason to buy this game.
Poker Night 2 is a surprisingly good poker game with the added benefit of humor as well as well known characters to play against. There are now two modes of poker instead of one, and while Texas Hold'em is the most fun, Omaha Hold'em is enjoyable as well. I wholeheartedly recommend this game for anyone who knows the rules of poker, and is at least somewhat familiar with some of the characters you can play versus.

Fun poker game. Most people buy it for the items you recieve on borderlands 2 & Team Fotress 2 but to be fair this is a decent poker game in itself. Plus the character you play against say and do funny stuff.
Yes It can get annoying once you have heard all the comments and they repeat themselfs, though still this is a good fun poker game which also helped me to learn how to actually play poker.

The ai basically hands you their money, no skill is required.Their moves seem to have no logic, just out of complete randomness. Poker only seems to be good versus real people, but the type of game TellTale was trying to create should at least have leaderboards, if not you really just want your free in game items, and to leave this forever uninstalled. Popular Faces: From Clap Trap to Sam & Max you get to see some of your favorite video game characters battle it out[give you their money] at a Texas Hold 'Em, or Omaha table. Some people would consider this a great positive, I personally find all of these characters annoying and small time. I would prefer something like Master Cheif & Duke Nukem, you know some people who seem to have money and a more interesting background. Furthermore little of the dialogue is relative to the characters, just random mutter cluttering what should be a silent table. Price: For only seven cents this is an okay game, but I wouldn't have bought it for any other reason. [$1.24 - 10%($.12) from coupon - $.10 from credit back - $.95 from playfire rewards] Reward: The game rewards you in various ways, items in Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2, and some more background and leisure life details of your favorite video game characters.
Telltale usually follows their tittle [telling a tale] this has no story line and is exceedingly boring with every hand played. This was practically free considering I could sell the TF2 items and the money to buy the game was from GMG credit anyways, so I shouldn't be one to complain, but I would not recommend this to anyone for real money.

This game is better than the first one. The characters are fantastic, with my personal favourites being GLADOS and Claptrap. The dialogue and interactions between the characters are hilarious, and the poker is simple and fun. You can earn items in other games, such as Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands 2, by beating certain characters at certain times, which is fantastic and gives you a clear objective.
The only problems I have with this game are that sometimes dialogue can repeat after you have been playing for a while, and that the game can move a little slowly when you have to wait for the characters to finish their sentences and play.
Overall, it is an entertaining game aimed towards those who are interested in the characters rather than those interested in an in depth, fast, poker simulator.

Poker Night 2 takes the traditional game of Poker and gives it a jolt of modern gaming and pop culture fun by introducing funny and relevant characters to consistently entertain and badger you along the way.
The gameplay consists or regular Texes Hold 'Em or Omaha rule poker and the only other non-traditional elements to the game play comes in the form of buying drinks to coax your opponents into revealing their calls. Poker Night 2 improves on all the elements introduced in the first game as well as introduces a set of more interesting characters.
Overall, the game provides a strong challenge that requires you to become at least familiar with the rules of the game in order to actually win a tournament. In addition, some collectibles in the form of different themed sets, decks and chips provides a nice change of setting from keeping you from getting bored.
