Valve has done it again with the second edition of the smash hit challenge game Portal. Portal 2 takes what we all know and love from version 1, strapped a brand new co-op mode to it and made it even better. Portal is a unique challenge game that make you think in ways that other games just don’t.
With first person shooters renowned for senseless gun slinging fun, Portal 2 has a completely different take on the FPS. Sure in some levels you reach frustration that makes you wish you had an AK-47 on-board, but the sense accomplishment after getting through is one of the most rewarding emotions a gamer can feel.
Can you believe its been more than 4 years since the last edition, Valve please take the profits from Portal 2, expand your crack team of creatives and deliver us a bunch of new test chambers each year !
While always visually interesting, about my only criticism is that visually Portal 2 didn’t blow me away. There were certainly momentous occasions when environments would move and react in ways you had expected or reveal a scale that made you feel the size of an ant. There were however times where textures were relatively low by today’s standards. Its good thing the game is so engaging or this may be a big issue.. it wasn’t.
All in all, Portal 2 is a great game, I give it a 10/10. If it wasn't for Wheatley, played by British comedian Stephen Merchant, it would've only been a 9. :P
