Portal 2 :: PC Game Review

Portal 2 :: PC Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 19, 2011
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Portal 2 is a highly anticipated game for the PC, XBox 360 and PS3. Will it deliver on its promises or is the hype a lie? Read on to find out!

Portal 2 is the sequel to the fan-favorite Portal game, which was a small and short game included with Valve's Orange Box collection. It is a first-person puzzle platformer with an amazing story and wonderful humor.

For Science!

The focus of Portal 2 is the portal gun, a device that can create two portals on flat walls, allowing the player to travel between them like a worm hole. Using this device, the player must navigate the world of Portal 2, stopping every now and then to figure out what needs to be done in order to proceed.

Portal 2 starts off very easy and each level works to teach the player the basics of the game. Very quickly, you will be able to pull off amazing combinations of moves that may have seemed impossible to do before. Driving the game is a compelling story that is both interesting and funny. Like a good book, it will be hard to put this game down!

This was a Triumph!

The biggest complaint about Portal 2 is that the game is too short. However, this is said after a 6-8 hour single player story and a 3-4 hour co-op game with its own unique levels and story. If anything else, saying that a 10 hour game is too short really proves that people loved the game and wanted more. You may still get stuck on some parts and, at times, the game may get frustrating, but this will only make it more satisfying when you solve a level.

Don't expect an action movie where you take out your enemies with guns and punches. Portal 2 is a thoughtful game. Sure, you will be frying turret guns with death lasers, but that's just part of a puzzle. Overall, Portal 2 is an extremely polished game with very few flaws. It is incredibly enjoyable and is highly recommended that every gamer play it.
