So today marks the release of Portal 2. Many of us (probably) have been waiting for this since 2007, the year that gave us The Orange Box (and MW, Crysis, Bioshock. Basically gaming god-year). Now I'd actually rather tell you guys that Valve released Episode 3 today, but we'll have to wait another 4 years for that. In the meantime I'd rather inform you about the second best thing that is Portal 2.

I ordered a physical copy from Amazon, so I'll have to wait. The ones who ordered it at Steam have probably already played it. So, share your favorite moment, tell us about the gameplay, quote the funniest line and laugh about Weatley's accent or GLaDOS' cynisism.







If anyone can actually be bothered to reply (I don't know how TGTAP's activity is lately..), then I might just add some nice info and the like to this post.

In the meantime.. this is where I get off.

It's too epic for words. Knowing now what I know (on the penultimate chapter as we speak) I'd have hated it if I'd have known what was coming. It's too good.

Claims that it's 15hrs are untrue. I'd call it 8, 9 max for anyone, even the touristy players like me who listen to the dialogue intently.

I like how the TF2 Team snuck in and added hats to it.

Also, once people start finishing the campaign, the co-op is pretty lulzy. Not great, and lacking the soul of the singleplayer, but good. Hit me up... Steam ID: MrLlamaLlama

I actually haven't even played the first, though I have The Orange Box coming to my house on Thursday. Idk but I actually was excited for Portal 2's release? Haha but yeah, If I like Portal, I'll get the second after I beat the first.

I finished Portal 2 the other day. At first it seemed very similar to 1, but I really got into it by the end. Storyline was awesome, the new features are cool, and yeah pretty cool.

It has some replay value, but I'd like to be able to pick a levels to replay (not just saves).

Not tried co-op yet.

You can go back chapter by chapter, but they were pretty beefy as it was. Had the opp. to play co-op with some friends and i must say it has been very well thought out. Bring a mic though.

I am disappoint.. No challenge rooms.. and the puzzels we're not all that challenging. Though I have to admit I had a few 'what now' moments, it usually was cause I didn't understand a certain game mechanic.
Spoiler


I did like Portal 2, don't get me wrong. Just... felt like it could have done better.
Spoiler
and too much questions regarding the story are left unanswered. It's more of an afterthought though.. I enjoyed playing through it the first time. Sort of did it over again (well, half at least), but it's not that much fun doing it again.. unlike Portal 1, that gave you the possibilities to do things over again on a different way.

Eh, what? I don't understand. Am I the only one who felt a little.. I don't know, hollow when finishing the game?




Spoiler





So once again: it's a very good game with very high production values and I'd certainly recommend it to everyone. It just isn't the best game ever and actually is even a step down on some fronts compared to the original. The challenge rooms of the original actually were what the name suggested: a real challenge. Portal 2 basically just makes you walk a predetermined path while listening to the lines of Wheatley and GLaDOS while now and then popping a portal here and there.

It isn't as grim as I may make it sound, but I had a bit higher expectations.. On the other hand, it's hard to 'wow' once again when having to live up to something as fresh as Portal 1 was.

I just don't know how it could possibly live up to the first game. I mean, the first game was the greatest game of all time.

And I am rather upset that I cannot make it work on my computer.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.
