Product Description

Portal 2

Manufacturer's Description

Coming this April to four major platforms (PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Mac) Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.

The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.

The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.

5.0 out of 5 stars What more can you ask? 10 May 2012
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first Portal was a unique game...I've played a lot of games in my life and I can assure you I had never seen anything like that. It was fun, family-friendly (i.e. despite being a first-person game, no blood and shooting, for a change), full of puzzles (some of them harder than the ones in Portal 2), had nice graphics that ran smoothly on most machines and to top it all off, a nice twist about two thirds of the way in that added a sense of refreshment to the game till it culminated in a nice finale. Four well deserved stars there, for this bold and sweet new IP.

Now we have the sequel - Portal 2. Where to begin? Of course, this game isn't Mass Effect. Or Call of Duty, or Battlefield or any of the leading industry giants that take you on a visual rollercoaster ride. But why does it still get 5 stars? Because in its new genre, and also as a sequel, Portal 2 does everything perfectly. Let me explain:

Portal 2 isn't a reboot of the franchise, it is a direct sequel. I like how the developers chose the theme of a rundown facility that we revisit, testing chambers being overgrown with vegetation, partial sunshine shining through from some unfathomable crevice high above, and dirtied and rundown panels being a pale reminder of the testing facility's former glory.

The graphics of Portal 2 are simply awesome. No, it is neither Cryengine 3 nor Frostbite 2, but still Portal 2 looks amazing. The lighting, the visual design, and most importantly, the (albeit scripted) smooth and dynamic destruction you witness during many parts of the game is so fluid and convincing that you can do nothing but simply marvel at the attention to detail that is present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain! 14 Dec. 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a bit late getting to Portal 2. I felt the original was a wonderful little package that had said all that needed to be said- I was sceptical at best about whether it was possible to create 6+ hours of content from the same mechanics. Somehow, Valve have managed just that. They've evolved the mechanics just enough to make it feel fresh and new, but not too much that it loses what made the original so special. I thoroughly enjoyed the singleplayer story. I thought some of the middle parts of the game were a little overlong, but whenever it started to really drag they introduced a new gameplay element or story twist that pulled me back in. It took me about 8 hours over the course of three nights, but I've only brieflytouched the multiplayer stuff so far and it looked there is plenty more there to entertain me. One more thing (though it's probably been said enough by other reviewers already)- the voice acting from Merchant et al is superb, and laugh out loud funny in places.
I would give this four and a half stars but at this price (£12.99 at the time of writing) you can't go wrong. Great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marmite 2 Aug. 2011

I think this is one of those games you either love or hate.

I love this game. I never played the first one so when this became available for under 13 notes I decided to give it a go. The game is lovely and polished and all but the most basic of rigs should be able to handle it.

The puzzles are fiendishly fun but the sinlge player I felt was a touch short. Multiplayer more than makes up for this. Really enjoyed. The dlc is rumoured ot be free when it comes out so that will only add value to the game.

I don't know why people complain about steam, I find it soo easy and convenient. But then my time with steam has been trouble free.

Portal was a superb game. For me it turned the Orange Box from a bit of a con to a thing of beauty. Though in itself short, the challenge levels at the end provided many hours enjoyment as I tried to meet the near impossible tasks set. Indeed, I could only see some of the tricks needed to get top marks by watching youtube clips. I wasn't able to replicate them all myself.

Plus it had one of the best endings to any game in history. Cake or no cake.

So, could Valve pull it off again? For their sake I certainly hoped so. I am immensely happy to report that they have indeed produced a game of immense and fine splendour. Put simply, if you liked Portal, then this will knock your socks off.

At this point I will say that if you have seen video clips of two robots running about, then relax. That is the two-player coop game. The main game itself has the same character from the original Portal. Indeed, the game starts with her receiving a rude awakening. The first thing that struck me was "I recognise that voice. Its that annoying bloke off those Barclays ads." And indeed it is. One of the main characters who chatters away to you for a large part of the game is the same, well character basically, as the bloke on those ads. I don't mean that he will try and sell you insurance, but his voice and wordplay are the same. If you like that, you are in for a treat!

Anyway, you soon stumble across, and reawaken, an old friend. All she has been doing all these years is thinking about how you killed her. So she is not happy. Turns out, all she wants to do is test though. So you have to run tests...*
(see footnote at end of review if you have never played Portal).

New tests, with new problems. Oh the old favourites are still there.
