Governor of Poker 2 Review

The sequel to Governor of Poker was released and I was thrilled to play it. I spent many late nights trying to take down those Gamblers in the first one and I was looking forward to the challenge of the second. So far I have not been disappointed. The game-play is essentially the same as the first: your job is to win enough money to buy up the local towns and beat enough notorious gambles so you can face off with the Governor. However, version 2 more fully engages the player with a lot more data at your fingertips and a more complete world. I like how with a simple mouse-over you can easily see where your current hand ranks in the pecking order of poker hands and with a single click you can review the results of the previous hand.

Another improvement in the game is the non-linear play. You are no longer restricted to a set of cities. If you have the money, you can go anywhere and play. You can even gamble while riding on the various forms of transportation.

The graphics are improved as well and you can purchase your own hat! I’m not sure if it is just me, but the level of difficult seems higher in this version, with the locals raising their bets higher sooner. The only sour note I encountered was a typo in the very first dialog you read, which spells the Spanish word “Hola” as “Ola”. Come on guys, who was proof reading this stuff?
