Product Description

Product Description

The Final Hour of Portal 2 takes you deep within the top-secret offices of Valve, creators of Half-Life, for an unvarnished look at the creative process behind the new video game Portal 2. Journalist Geoff Keighley was granted unprecedented “fly on the wall” access to Valve over the past three years to create this story. From the hush-hush Portal prequel that was shelved to the last minute scramble to complete the game’s story, The Final Hours of Portal 2 is a gripping and dramatic story.

Please note the Kindle version does not include as many photos or the videos that are available in the iPad version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 13 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a gamer, I found this book fascinating to read. I loved playing portal and portal 2 but never realised what went behind making it. I loved getting to know the people, the role they played and the ideas going around to get the game finished. A must read for any gamer out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not long enough 5 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book describes the problems and successes in the development of the award-winning game Portal 2. What is there is very interesting but there simply isn't enough of it and it didn't cover the story behind Portal 2 in as much depth as I hoped.

I liked this book because of the perspective it provides of how Portal 2 was made. It also gave a good perspective on some other ideas valve was working on. Overall I would recommend the book to anyone who likes Portal 2 to enjoy hearing how it was made.
4.0 out of 5 stars Quick read, lots of fun 28 Jan 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of spoilers, so don't read the book if you haven't already played Portal 2 all the way though.

Gives lots of insight into Valve's creative process and the people behind it, and the numerous starts, stops, and start-overs that went into the game.
