Portal 2 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Mac) review

 

Four years after exploding into the public eye with a sensational debut EP, synthetic singer-songwriter GLaDOS has finally taken on the challenge of the difficult second album. Her song ?Still Alive? became an overnight hit after picking up millions of...

In conclusion,?Portal 2 is a textbook example of how to make a great game, but nothing more. Its narrative focus robs the game of its predecessor's quirky charm, but gives players a much stronger sense of purpose - medium-term objectives roll by at a...

Portal 2 (2011)

 

Portal 2’s design is meticulously crafted to such a startling degree of sublime ingenuity that from the moment the returning protagonist – Chell – awakens from her century-or-so slumber, you’ll find yourself hurtled through one of the most...

Portal 2 ? Review

 

The day gamers have been waiting years for has finally arrived; Portal 2 is now available in stores. Picking up where the first title left off you will, once again, assume the role of Chell. After the conclusion of the first game, Chell was dragged...

Portal 2

 

Set hundreds of years after the original game, and with the devastated Aperture Science Laboratory largely reclaimed by its jungle-like surroundings, Portal 2 finds returning protagonist Chell freed from - what we believe - is a form of stasis...

Some may accuse us of being unprofessional in offering up anything more than a vague impression of Portal 2 considering that it still has several months left in development. But look at it this way: the fully-fledged sequel boasts even more creativity...

Portal 2

 

Portal came out of nowhere in 2007 and became one of those games beloved by all. With no guns, no combat and a reliance on respecting the players intelligence, it pretty much stands alone as a bastion of innovation in the First Person Shooter genre. So...

Portal 2 Review (PS3)

 

All too often video game sequels suffer from what I like to call ‘Bioshock syndrome'. There's nothing wrong with them. But the sequel often never really lives up to or can't capture the magic that was the original title. Sure it plays better, looks...

So in closing Portal 2 really is an amazing game. Valve uses the Source engine well and delivers a unique and challenging experience. Plus if you’re buying a new retail copy of the PS3 version you get a free PC/Mac Steam download of the game. Portal 2...

Portal 2

 

Portal 2 takes what the original did so well and perfects it in nearly every way. It looks great, the voice acting is some of the best you'll ever hear, and everything works together to form one of the most impressive games in recent memory.

They say that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but I dispute that and say that the shortest distance between said points is a portal, and you can make that distance even shorter with the trainer from CheatHappens.com....

We take a closer look at the recent release of Portal 2 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, but does it live up to the hype? Find out after the break, y [...]

Great world (Aperture Science), hilarious cast of characters (GLaDOS, Wheatley, Cave Johnson, turrets, etc), solid gameplay, excellent level design and top notch story telling make Portal 2 one of the greatest games of all time.

Portal 2- PS3

 

When Portal was first introduced to gamers via The Orange Box in 2007, it was an unexpected hit. It won countless awards for its accomplishments in gameplay innovation and narrative. It resonated with gamers from all across the spectrum of Hardcore and...

Funny dialogue ; Amazing Co-Op and Single Player Campaigns ; Great characters and voice-over work ; Seamless Cross-Platform Gameplay

Tedious loading screens ; Some puzzles feel too linear
