Review: Portal 2

I truely didn't know the meaning of jizzed in my pants until I played this game. Portal 2 is a continuation of the very successful Portal game. It is well known for it's humour and innovative and spectacular game-play. GLaDOS and Chell are back along with other characters such as Wheatley and Cave Johnson. This game has really focused on creating a plot, where as the goal of the first one was to beat tests and escape. New features such as physics altering gels, hard light bridges and areal faith plates make this game an epic adventure, that features some very surprising plot twist. It also features a co-op mode that has it's own story which was a blast. Me and a friend would spend so much time trying to plan out rooms and how to beat them, even if we weren't playing. The thing with the co-op is the second player has to participate or you won't get past the first level. Portal 2 will take you a combined 8-14 hours depending on if you are playing the co-op and want to take your time. If there is one fault to find in this game it's that it doesn't quite live up to the massive shadow cast by it's prequel. As good as this game was, Portal just had a certain charm and left such a lasting impression. Not to say Portal 2 doesn't, as it is easily one of the greatest games I have ever played. Another thing I didn't like was the ending song in Portal 2, probably because it made you compare it to the original which was so great.

GLaDOS won the nobel prize for longest grudge held

The very simple-minded but hilarious, Wheatley

Still watin' on my cake...
