Portal 2!

Yeah!

First post on this blog about the best game of 2011 so far, Portal 2!


For those not familiar with Portal, it was a short Puzzle-FPS game, featured in Orange Box. The general idea was solving puzzles with a portal gun which was able to create 2 portals at the same time and move between them, something like that:


Simple but very addictive and clever, combined with awesome writing and dark sarcastic humor, this 2hr gameplay game became a legend. If you haven't play it yet go now!


Now to the new one! I am very happy to announce that the game is just great. Of course there is no shock element gameplay-wise as like we had in the first game, but there are some clever additions that make the puzzles even more clever. The gameplay remains addictive (although most of the puzzles are fairly easy), the writing and voice acting are terrific and damn clever and the enviroments, especially on the outdoor stages are breathtaking, revealing bits of a massive post apocalyptic industrial setting.



The game also tries to give a little more background on the characters and Aperture Science, something that wasn't developed on the first game, and it does a very good job delivering that during your progress throught the various test chambers. Only downside is that is a bit small (around 7-8hrs for the single player mode) but there is also the co-op mode which i haven't tried out yet but i hear that it's very nice, and we also wait for the DLCs that are gonna get released at summer.

Small but addicting, with great gameplay, sound, writing and graphics, what else do we need? Play it now!

10/10

  40. Like Lenj I was fast, too, but it's still an awesome game.
    Only thing I didn't like was that you are very limited sometimes. One big room, 2 portal areas: "Soo where should I place those portals?!" :D
