Portal 2 Review

Portal 2 Review

Portal 2 is out for the PlayStation 3, X Box 360 and PC and this time around it's AMAZING. Everything about this game is AMAZING!

The writing is great. this game prides itself with being a surprisingly funny.

While this isn't the greatest looking game. its defiantly got its style. while the game docent look entirely like the first Portal it shares the same atmosphere only this time around its thousands of days later and the testing facility has been overrun with wildlife. 

Yes Portal 2 is a first person shooter but you wont kill one thing in this game. the only weapon you have is a portal gun that shoot two types of portals an in and an out. The whole point of this game is to get from destination A to destination B. this game is literally one big maze.

Portal 2 also goes back to the "original" testing facility, where colored goos are introduced, a blue goo that makes it so you can jump higher, an orange goo that makes you move quicker, a white goo that makes it so you can put portals on surfaces where you previously couldn't. compared to the rest of the game the "original" testing facility dramatically slows down the pacing of the game and very commonly drive you nuts trying to figure out what to do next in this huge testing facility. 

You don't have to have played the first game to understand what is going on in the second game, also there's not on mention of cake in this installment.  

If you own both a PlayStation 3 and a PC there is absolutely no reason not to buy the PlayStation 3 version because it come with a free PC download of the game, that links both games together, and you can also play with your Steam friends online.

oh the online.

I thought the online for this game was going to be imposable and after playing through the whole thing the major issue for multiplayer is that there's almost no replay value.

Once you know how to solve a puzzle the willingness to help someone who is just seeing things for the first can be overwhelming and sadly this can take away fun from the other player who is just seeing the problem for the first time and trying to figure it out for themselves. So if your new to Portal online try and play with someone who is also new. This will keep the teamwork up and you can both figure out the problem together

Overall I think this is a game contestant for game of the year, 
I'm going to have to give Portal 2 a 

10 out of 10.
