Portal 2 “Peer Review” PC Review
Andy Ruffell / 2 years ago
So here we are again. Portal 2.
Firstly, let me apologise for this not being in our usual format. With it not being a full/large game, how much can one say?
When Valve announced Portal 2, people were over the moon. After playing Portal people were left wanting more, as it was only ever designed to show off what they were capable of. When Portal 2 actually came to light it was mentioned that there would be a free downloadable content package arriving around September 2011. This made people, including me very happy. September came and there was no sign, but then light at the end of the tunnel! Less than one weeks notice and here it was!
So, with the recent release of the free DLC on all platforms, Valve have given us some extras levels to test our cunning and wits against. To celebrate the release of the free DLC, Valve also offered Portal 2 at a lowly sum of £9.99 for a couple of days in the midweek madness deal on Steam. Magic for anyone that hadn’t yet bought it! After waiting for a couple of days for a partner to come along and play with me, I jumped straight in to the game and promptly threw myself in to some acid. You’re a robot that makes hilarious noises. It has to be done…
While Portal 2 had a great single player element, I found the co-op side to be far more entertaining, assumingly Valve recognised this was the case for most players, as the Peer Review DLC focuses mainly on 9 new levels set for co-op with the loveable P-Body and Atlas.
