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

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have Your Cake and Eat It 29 Jun. 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The original `Portal' came as part of the `Orange Box' bundle along with `Half Life 2' and `Team Fortress 2'. In terms of extras it was like ordering an ice cream and being given £5000 on the side. The game was intelligent, funny and unique. `Portal 2' is the follow up to this mini game and is a full release; therefore, it must provide more to represent value for money. Set many years after the first game the Aperture Science facility is run down and your nameless character is brought out of a deep slumber. Along with the help of the rather dim AI Wheatley, you must escape the facility and try and avoid meeting up with an old friend, GLaDOS.

In terms of story telling and character Valve have once again been triumphant. The characters of GlaDOS and Wheatley are a joy to listen to and make the game a breeze. The commentary from the long dead Aperture Science staff is also fantastic; the game is packed with Easter Eggs for the more hardened player to discover. It is in terms of the gameplay that the game falls ever so slightly from excellence. Around half the game is based in test chambers, like the first game, whilst the rest is set in the bowels of the facility. I found the sections that required you to use your portal gun in a real environment much more entertaining and I was reluctant to go back to the test chambers again.

`Portal 2' easily justifies its full RRP; there is a comprehensive single player mode with several new puzzle elements that see you slide and bounce around the levels. Perhaps the better element is the co-op game that is also included. Playing as Atlas and Peabody, you and a pal must work together to tackle tricky test chambers across many levels.
