Portal 2 has been out for over a month now and when I first took a look at it on launch it didn’t really interest me all that much. I never played the original game (sigh!) so I didn’t really know what I was missing out on, but now starting to play Portal 2 I have just one word for it, awesome! I’ve only just started playing it, I completed the first chapter last night and already I can’t wait to see what else this game has to offer.
Stephen Merchant as “Wheatley” is great, such a funny character. I’ve included the Portal 2 trailer above which as some footage of this great character. This game is built on the aging source engine that powered Half Life 2 but surprisingly the game plays very well. It isn’t the most impressive looking game I’ve seen recently but the art style of the game really works well and visually looks very good.
I’ve been having fun with it so far, if you’re looking around for a new game to play definitely don’t go past this one. I disregarded it for a whole month after it launched but glad I gave it a try, I’m totally hooked on it right now!
