There were times when playing Portal 2 that I didn't know quite how to feel about it. My initial instinct was to try to compare it to the experience of playing the first Portal for the very first time, but it became clear pretty quickly that that was neither fair nor feasible. To begin with, the...
Portal 2 is a Great Game
on February 14, 2012 at 05:49 PM
While not perfect, Portal 2 is an amazing game. Great physics, well thought out puzzles, and endlessly funny dialog. It is not that different from the first Portal, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Lots more types of puzzles, and some really amazing environments.
Portal 2 - A New Standard of Creativity in Gaming
on January 27, 2012 at 09:02 PM
Since I’ve only and probably will only play the single player campaign, that’s all I’ll be reviewing in this review (I don’t like playing co-op with strangers, or online multiplayer that much in general), though I’m sure the quality would apply to both sides. In short, Portal...

When it comes down to it, the average gamer knows who Valve is and understands what kind of games they bring out and Portal 2 is no exception to this. Anyone that played Portal can tell you that it is a short and quick puzzle game that people have grown to love and appreciate, but Portal 2 is a whole...

Originally met with no expectations, Portal's initial entry was an incredible slice of gaming nirvana packed into a budget compilation of Valve titles. Once people realized how masterfully crafted the game was, you couldn't talk about video games without someone mentioning cakes and lies. Valve...

Portal 2 Review: Extreme Fun With Science
on June 20, 2011 at 07:29 PM
In short, Portal 2 is an extraordinary game. It stimulates the mind with its clever puzzles, it amuses with its hilarious dialogue, and delivers a satisfying experience. Let's get down to the main part: the gameplay. Describing Portal 2 as "Clever" is an understatement, in my opinion. The...

Game Over... continue?
on June 13, 2011 at 01:18 PM
*WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS RELATING TO THE ORIGINAL PORTAL * In my humble option, Portal should be one of those games that is mandatory ... everyone should play it. Even if you're not a huge fan of 'puzzlers,' it's sheer ingenuity and humor make it worthwhile (it's actually been...

This is by far one of my favorite games, ever. The story as simple as it is, is still very good, very fitting to the world of Portal. The voice acting is suburb, and this is the funniest games I have ever played. There were times were I literally had to pause the game and stop playing because i was laughing...

VALVe really hit the target this time!
on June 07, 2011 at 10:54 AM
I believe know that you will have fun with this game. You don't even have to like puzzles to like this game. It is much longer than the original, and also way better with a new physics engine. The storyline is much more interesting, and the game offers you the experience of looking at some of Aperture...
Portal 2 Review: This was a triumph.

That tagline is ripped straight from a Rock Band set-list - I never played the critically acclaimed ‘Portal’. This was my first adventure with the magical portal gun, my first foray into Aperture science. This is my review of the highly anticipated sequel, Portal 2. Gameplay At it’s...

What's there to say about Portal 2? Valve delivered in every single way. Providing a game with a great story, even more memorable characters than the first, and some of the best action/puzzle/platforming around. Simply put: Portal 2 rocks. And if that weren't enough, its got co-op this time around...
Portal 2 Will Break Your Brain, But Make You Feel Good About It
on May 17, 2011 at 01:47 PM
With the original Portal, Valve created a short but sweet game with a unique gameplay mechanic in which you create and walk through portals to solve puzzles. Not only was it new, but it was fun and challenging, and it was incredibly satisfying whenever you solved a tough puzzle. Flash forward to Portal...

WGWC 2.1: Portal 2 Review

on May 06, 2011 at 12:52 PM
When it first released in 2007 as part of The Orange Box as a sort of experiment, the original Portal had little in the way of fanfare or expectations. It went on to become a breakout success, combining mind-blowing gameplay, pitch perfect pacing, and fantastic writing to create an experience that resonated...
The Successor to Greatness Manages to be Greater

When Portal 2 was announced, I was really excited! However, I couldn't help but think, "It won't be the same." The first Portal was a smaller game, but its impact was HUGE. I definitely wanted more, but as far as impact goes, I expected much less. That said, I'm pleased to say that...
"...combustible lemon that can burn your house down."
on April 28, 2011 at 02:39 PM
From what I've seen and played on Portal 2, it's probably one of the best games I've played yet. A brilliant combination of mind-burning, comedic, movie-ish, physics-based fun. The game would be epic enough just with its gameplay alone, but Valve truly kicked it up a notch-or even 5 notches...
