A few of you commented on the pretty obvious hint I dropped in last week’s WeView, and yes it really is here now. It’s time to gather your thoughts on Portal 2, put virtual pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and give your opinion of Valve’s tale of puzzle solving hilarity.
Of course love for Portal and it’s successor has been pretty close to universal. There are a few who don’t like the puzzles or who just don’t like the humour, but it seems pretty rare to actually encounter them. Compared to games that seem far more popular, such as Call of Duty, there just seems to be a more universal feeling of love towards Portal and it’s sequel.
Portal 2 isn’t without it’s flaws and sits on a very comfortable nine, not quite managing to grab the brass ring of a ten. That’s not to say that Alex was shy with praise for the title, in fact he heaped it on.
Regardless, games like this don’t come around very often, and if you miss out on this one you’ll be skipping one of the finest examples of the medium the industry has to offer: Portal 2 is compelling, exciting, wildly capricious and, most importantly, laugh out loud funny. And who knows, maybe there’ll be a surprise waiting for you – at the end.
Now, whilst normally I’d give Alex’s opinion all the love in the world it doesn’t really matter here. This is about you think of GLaDOS’s little world, so head over to the forums and give us your opinion. Remember to give a score using the Buy It, Rent It, Bargain Bin, Avoid It scale, and if you want your review to count in the verdict get it in by Sunday morning.
