Portal 2 In Motion adds three mechanics, subtracts one plot (review)

VentureBeat
30 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Portal 2 In Motion offers some cool new tools and a few more hours playing around in the Aperture Science Test Facility. While it’s occasionally sloppy and too isolated to hold its own against Valve’s best, it does have solid motion controls and a lot of neat ideas that I would love to see more of...
  • Pros: Cool new mechanics… After you pick up an item, you can hold out your Move to activate One-to-One, which you can use to rotate objects in real time (hence “one-to-one”) by turning your controller.  You can also get boxes across gaps, through holes in walls, and around obstacles. It has a bit of a ...
  • Cons: Puzzle solutions are occasionally inelegant In Motion contains moments at which progressing depends on forces out of the player’s control, and that’s kind of a big deal.

Game Debate

Portal 2

High-Def Digest
5 October 2011
  • Summary: The folks at Valve have succeeded in nailing a sequel to Portal.

  • Excerpt: Portal 2..... Valves fresh new approach to its ever popular puzzle game. Am I a Valve fan? In deed I am, with hits like Half Life, Team Fortress, Counter Strike and Left 4 Dead, Valve is ever expanding the way we play games and Portal 2 is no exception.

  • Conclusion: What they say about sequels not holding up the original is often enough true, however it doesn’t apply to Portal 2. Everything about Portal 2 is “bigger and better” than the original.

  • Excerpt: Portal came out of nowhere in 2007 and became one of those games beloved by all. With no guns, no combat and a reliance on respecting the players intelligence, it pretty much stands alone as a bastion of innovation in the First Person Shooter genre. So how do you follow that?

Strategy Informer
13 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Portal 2 is the best Valve release to date, and one of the most refreshing, exciting and innovative games we've ever played. There's no doubt in our minds that numerous Game of the Year awards have now already been shotgunned, and with mighty good reason.

  • Conclusion: What seemed like a silly one-off intended to lead in to the next Half-Life (whenever that is coming) has turned into a premiere franchise that can stand on its own two legs. Portal 2 is everything a good sequel should be.
