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...
Have you Ever Seen aPortal? aPortal 2 Review
on January 22, 2012 at 10:03 AM
The ARG that lead up to the release of Portal 2 was one of the most complex and exciting promotional campaigns for a video game ever created. It had Valve enthusiasts and Portal nerds salivating at the very thought of a sequel to what many consider the best puzzle game ever made. Portal shook the foundations...
Review - Portal 2

Portal 2 is a masterpiece. It’s a concord moment in the gaming industry, a point to which we will all look back and truly appreciate its genius. This is, hands down, one of the greatest games I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. Just in case you’ve never played the first Portal ,...
Going Back To A Place You Loved

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...
Portal 2: Great puzzles, great lines, great game.
on October 09, 2011 at 07:14 PM
I went to Gamestop one day with Portal 2 and CoD: Black Ops fighting to be my purchase. It just so happened that Gamestop had a sale going on for new Portal 2 games, so I decided to buy it. When I was able to set it into the disc tray, I didn't really know exactly what to expect, having not played...

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...

My favorite part was when I was in the area with Cave Johnson the joke were...
A Shining Example of How Puzzle Games Should Be Made Nowadays
on May 16, 2011 at 06:42 PM
In an age when the pure adventure game is all but forgotten and when puzzle games are generally relegated to Facebook's endless online Flash-based offerings, Valve provides players a true puzzle adventure game, which demonstrates how to bring both genres into the modern age. Living through the eyes...
WGWC 2.1: Portal 2 Review
Blake Anglin (thegodofwine7)
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...
Portal 2 (I love this game)
on April 22, 2011 at 08:45 PM
I can't believe I'm saying this but I nominate this game for best achievement in story telling of all time. This is the best story of any game I have ever played. Now that's a bold statement especially since I have played Mass Effect 2, RDR, Uncharted 2 and a lot more but trust me on this...
Still Alive: The Review With a Tune
on April 21, 2011 at 07:26 AM
(This is a review of the single player experience) This is a Triumph: I'm making a note here, despite the stress. It's hard to make a sequel with satisfaction. Aperture Science.... they did what the could, and got some fans. And for the good of all the us, and everyone who plead... in this sequel...
Portal 2 - The Most Fun You'll Ever Have With Science
on April 20, 2011 at 10:54 PM
The second GLaDOS was revived and that hauntingly digital voice spoke for the first time, I honestly got the chills. Portal 2 has been a long time coming, and Valve seemed to do all they could to not disappoint. The improvements Valve made over the original Portal are evident the second the game begins...
The Good vs Bad when it comes down to Portal 2
on April 20, 2011 at 11:49 AM
Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Portal 2 has been a game that I’ve wanted to play since Gabe Newell’s rather shocking announcement for its release at E3 2010. I have never owned the first Portal, but upon renting and playing it I was amazed by its originality and it became...
A GREAT game
on April 20, 2011 at 08:22 AM
Portal 2 is an amazing game. the platforming, puzzle elements, story and especially the voice acting are all top notch. The level of interaction between you, and characters like wheatley astounded me. Also, the graphics and physics are all superb, with foliage looking at its best, and the aperture science...
