If that’s not enough, you can earn yourself various items for other games too, depending on which platform you play it on. For example, the Xbox 360 version allows you to win a bunch of exclusive Borderlands 2 items, as well as some nifty avatar rewards. The Steam version also has Borderlands 2 rewards, but it also grants some Team Fortress 2 items. This provides just one more reason to put in an extended play session - as if trying to hear all of the character dialogue isn’t reason enough.
I don’t think I even need to mention this, but the audio in the game is fantastic. The voice actors all put in incredible performances, and the atmosphere provided by the amalgam of these character voices is perfect.
The graphics, on the other hand, aren’t especially impressive, but they certainly do the job as well as they need to. Seeing the Inventory again made my heart skip and leap; it looks exactly as I remember it.
At the end of the day, Poker Night 2 is really just another poker game. But don’t let that turn you off to it. Very few games are stuffed with this much personality. If you like humorous video games at all (and especially if you like Borderlands and Portal), you really need to play this. It actually makes you feel like you’re sitting in a room and hanging out with some of gaming’s favorite stars, and that’s an opportunity you shouldn’t pass up unless you simply hate video games.
