There are a few options in the game that enhance the experience, most notably the ability to upgrade your chips, felt, and cards to the settings from all the other characters origin worlds/stories, which outside of changing the appearance of the room/table/et al, also unlockas new dialogue between the characters. You can also buy drinks for the other characters, delivered by your favorite bartender, Moxxi, in whose bar you are actually playing poker in. The drinks cause the other players to be more obvious in their tells.
Speaking of tells, each of the players has them. Brock is a hothead and will often bet without a real hand. Ash plays more like Gus Hansen, Claptrap plays a solid game overall, and Sam almost always folds unless he has a real hand.
That's pretty much it. Outside of the setting, dialogue, and some challenges which allow you to unlock new skins and such for Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2, it's pretty much a straightforward Hold 'em and Omaha game. So, if you like poker and video games, you will probably enjoy this. If not, look elsewhere for sure.
Note, it was also nice that I got the game on sale really cheap.
Otherwise, it's a really great game with some insanely hilarious and iconic characters. I doubt they'll ever make another one, given Telltale's success now, but I hope they do someday.
Now the game of poker being played is a decently one. Not the greatest poker simulation ever, but it's fun enough. But if you just want poker, there are better titles suited for you.
But if you want the character interaction, this has it in spades. The characters all have their own playstyles, and different reactions to how you are doing. So it does give it some unique gameplay. And with all of the dialogue and circumstances you can make happen, it does have a fair amount of replay value too.
Also, this game has some cosmetic unlocks for other Valve titles if you are into that sort of thing. Nothing major, just hats for Team Fortress 2 and the like.
But it's only $5, and about $1.25 on sale. And for what it is, I got a couple decently fun hours out of it. And that's all I really wanted from the game. So I'd recommend it.
In terms of gameplay, I especially like the Omaha set up- if you haven't played Omaha before, this is a great way to learn. Unfortunately it does reach a point where you can abuse the AI to win 75+% of the time, so this will get old eventually. However, I still fire it up every now and then for a couple of hands- poker and humor is a great combination.
This game is definitely worth buying, especially for beginners.

This game is starting to show its age. Granted, it was a buck. That said, I thought the quotes and such that the characters use could've been a lot more inventive.Published 17 months ago by Jim Maaske
Great humor, wonderful gameplay, but conversations tend to get repetitive as they didn't record enough conversations to fill up time spent waiting on plays.Published on July 25, 2014 by Stephen Douglas
Very fun game, and very funny. That said, it's just poker so it can get monotonous after a while. Perfect for short burst play.Published on July 16, 2014 by wattsn
