No multiplayer is a missed opportunity

I can't believe they don't have multiplayer. It would have been great to control one of your favorite characters. Possibly have a dialogue wheel to choose one of their best quotes to say at opportune times. It seems like it would be easy to add multiplayer support so I don't see why they don't include it. It's 2013!

It doesn't need multiplayer, there is plenty of multiplayer poker games available, this really works best as a single player experience.

Agreed. IMO, multiplayer wouldn't work in this game cause its really about playing against the characters in the game and the dialogue they have together.

I agree, poker is meant to be played with other people. I don't mind playing AI occasionally like the pro takedowns in FHP but poker is so much better when playing against a real mind.

This game definitely plays better as a single player experience.

I am glad there is only single player. It sticks true to the original game.

There's other poker games where you can play against other people, the reason to play this game is for the interaction between the characters.
I can't see anyway for other human players to fit into the game, without it taking away from the game.

Yes it's fun to play single player for an hour or two but the dialogue starts to repeat and then it loses the magic. Multiplayer would help a lot. There is no reason it should not be included.

I'm glad there is no multiplayer... IF there was there'd be multiplayer achievements and online achievements and online tournaments and people complaining about achievements that require online access and in a few months time people complaining no one was playing online anymore... the list goes on.

Exactly. Already have a friend regretting he bought it because the repeat dialogue gets annoying fast. I'm sure more people would buy it (including myself) if it had multiplayer.

Please, someone for the love of Glob tell me how muti-player would work in this game?

Would other players replace the character?
What if 4 other players joined, what's the point in the game if the characters aren't in it?

I'm fine with no multiplayer, but I do agree that the dialogue needs more variety. Claptrap's constant comments on "bluff immunity" is driving me bats.

Don't really mind to be honest. I didn't buy this game thinking about playing with actual people. If I wanted a online poker game on my xbox, I would have gotten the avatar poker game by now.
