Portal 2 review

Portal 2 is the sequel to Portal and features much of the same gameplay with some great new additions such as tractor beams lasers, and other things that add to gameplay. Although some parts of the game still have the level like feel others are more open and the game strikes a nice balance between the two styles. The story is that after being put in stasis after the first game for hundreds of years the main character Chell is waken up by a robot named Wheatly who asks for her help in escaping the now crumbling Enrichment Center, but in the process they accidentally wake up GLaDOS.There is also a 2 player mode where you play as GLaDOS' test taking robots Atlas and P-body as well as a mode where you make your own levels and download others from the internet. So in theory you will never run out of levels! This game is also way more humorous then the last one and all the jokes are pretty funny. Although you can play this game if you didn't play the first one, I suggest you play that one first because it is a awesome game and it will help you better understand the story. I give 5 out of 5 stars      By Nick Starceski          review for Mac

Portal review

Portal is a game where you shoot portal to progress through out the levels get to the goal. The way it works is that you shoot a blue portal somewhere then a orange one and the blue will lead to the orange or vice versa. You can use this to jump from one portal into another increasing your velocity and launching you at great speeds. You also have to place blocks on buttons and get past deadly turrets to proceed. The story is the computer GLaDOS sends the player character Chell through a series of tests in exchange for cake but Chell discovers things may not be as they seem with GLaDOS. This is a very fun and well made game but it is a bit short.I give this 4.75 out 5 stars
