Have you ever eaten breakfast at White Castle? Was it a Slider? Well today I had one of their breakfast sandwiches.... it was awesome... It used real egg instead of a frozen omlette puck thing.... It was Delicious. Like, I enjoyed it more than my first McGriddle, which was awesome, EXTREMELY AWESOME. So, White Castle! I approve of your delicious deliciousness.... may it stay delicious as long as it can stay PROPERLY pronounced in the english language.
Next, Portal 2 review:
Built around the concept of "thinking with portals" that valve laid in the original Portal, Portal 2 manages to find more and more new ways to keep you guessing. Whether by throwing in "light bridges" or "excursion funnels" early in the game, or the Repulsion, propulsion, and conversion Gels later on, Valve gives you countless opportunities to experiment to find the solution to your puzzle, or just screw around with infinite loops.
Co op mode expands on this premise even further by adding in a second set of portals and setting the players as 2 robots: P-body, who appears to be a modified turret, and Atlas, which appears to be a modified personality core. The puzzle solving requires teamwork and communication, and is quite often incredibly satisfying upon the completion of a particularly difficult puzzle.
In terms of graphics:
The sound design and music in this game are truly something to behold and quite often set the mood so well you may occasionally forget that portal is just a game. Helping to convey the current situation in the game at all times, whether it should be creepy, frantic, or even a tad silly, It will not disappoint.
The writing in this game is once again typical, topnotch Valve Fare. The writing is often hilarious, and always manages to help keep you immersed. Wheatley and Glad0s are both perfectly realized in terms of dialogue and voice acting. ( i will not divulge anything else about the story other than it is absolutely worth it to play through single player MULTIPLE times)
-Well written dialogue
-Smart level design that encourages thought.
-Co op mode is fantastic
-Single player mode is incredibly short
- Portal physics occasionally go out of whack
-there aren't enough negatives... this game is that good
Overall i give the game a 10 out of 10.
Valve has outdone themselves, and portal 2 is the new posterchild for animation, level design, and puzzle gaming.
