Portal 2

version: ntsc/us - year: 2011 - developer: valve - publisher: valve - format: ps3, blu-ray - condition: mint - rarity: common

For this sequel, it became clear Valve spent huge resources to make sure it feels like a triple A title, unlike the first game which was released on a much lower budget and was more of an experiment.










Review - "Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!" - Cave Johnson

After all the drama that surrounded Valve, its CEO Gabe Newell and the PS3, one would have expected the PS3 version of Portal 2 to suck, right?


Portal2 on PS3 looks really polished and graphically exceptional to the point that sometimes some of the levels will look like pre-rendered cut-scenes….

Not only Graphically, Portal 2 looks amazing, but the audio part is of very high quality too with incessant and entertaining dialogues (or monologues) with plenty of black-humor which make the experience of playing this game even more unique.

The PS3 version of Portal2 also allows to connect your PSN account to your Steam account, effectively allowing cross-play with PC players.

This feature works well and increases the pool of online players with whom to tackle co-op missions, meaning that you won’t have to wait in a queue for ever to find a partner.

On the negative side, loading times between levels is steep and annoying while puzzles seem to have been dumbed down a bit, especially if compared to the first game but other than that, this is a must play.

Bottom line: Valve brings another unforgettable game to players worldwide. Play this, you won't feel sorry! 9/10
