Ever since the first release of Portal, I have been an ecstatic fangirl. I used to play tons of video games, but these days, I find too many other things that seem more interesting to do (like making websites, or entertaining guests and such. What happened to me? Anyway). Portal grabbed me and re-taught me what a spectacular gaming experience could be. After an experience like that, I started seeing other games- 2K’s Borderlands, I was floored by the story in Bioware’s Mass Effect 2, but for gameplay, nothing could possibly compete with the simple, brilliant, intuitive and challenging levels of Portal… Except maybe a sequel.
My dreams have come true. Not only is this sequel continuing an interesting storyline, bringing back old characters and concepts; it introduces a whole new world of possibilities for ways to enjoy the game.
First and foremost, it has a Co-op player mode.
There’s also a robust and story packed 1st person campaign that I can’t wait to explore:
Then there’s the host of all new interesting toys to add to their puzzles.
2011 can’t come soon enough!
