Diehard GameFAN: Poker Night 2 Review

DHGF: It feels odd to recommend a game not for great game design but to hang out with fictional characters, but that’s just what I’m doing. Each character is brought to life in a variety of ways. The voice acting is great, and the original voice actors reprise most of their roles. It is noticeable, though, that Ash is not voiced by Bruce Campbell, but I have to give the actor credit, he sounds close, and after a bit, you don’t even notice it. Each character has stories to tell, reacts accordingly to how the game plays out, and has their own specific visual tells. Each character also has a play style that fits; Ash bluffs big and takes risks, while Max plays it safe and cool. In fact, this social aspect is what elevates it from other poker games that might be better mechanically. Hanging out, telling stories and trying to figure out someone’s playing style by their reactions is a huge part of poker, and the reason why people get together to play. (Poker Night 2, Xbox 360) -
