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

VentureBeat
18 June 2011
  • 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 in the future.
  • 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 learning curve, but it makes sense and feels natural once you’ve done it a few times. Portal Surfing lets you grab a portal you’ve already placed and drag it along a wall or r...
  • 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. I admire the Valve-designed puzzles in both Portal games for their almost mathematical precision. The actions and inputs that get you from one of the facility’s ubiquitous inter-chamber elevators to the next typically follow a clean, logical sequence that is always satisfying to discover. Sixense’s so...

Portal 2 Review (PS3)

Yet Another Review Site
25 April 2011
  • Excerpt: More dimension-twisting buffoonery from Valve! OK, so I�m starting with an explanation: you�ve seen my score, and your blood is boiling because you disagree. To those who think I�ve marked it too low, it is a great game, but not quite the Game of the Year everyone is screaming about at the mo. More on my reasons below.
  • Pros: Visually and audibly awesome, clever use of tools for puzzling, great story and characters, co-op rocks, price
  • Cons: A bit short, no great leaps on from the original, not a lot of replay, massively hyped and suffers for it

  • Excerpt: Самый первый «Portal» завоевал сердца многих геймеров и вполне заслуженно занял место в десятке лучших игр 2007 года. Мозгодробительные головоломки, язвительные высказывания ГЛэДОС, и, конечно же, портальная пушка – эти, и многие другие атрибуты стали самым настоящим магнитом для жаждущих испытать свой интеллект игроков. И вот, спустя четыре года, вышел сиквел этой замечательной игры. Итак, встречайте – « Portal 2 »!

  • Conclusion: Portal 2 is zeker een waardige opvolger voor zijn voorganger. Valve heeft met deze game goed werk afgeleverd. Ook zit de verhaallijn goed in elkaar en is het aantal uur aan game plezier flink verbeterd. De fanatieke gamers zullen met negen hoofdstukken in totaal ergens rond de 6 tot 8 uur aan speelplezier hebben. Wat mij betreft is dit spel de volle prijs waard. Na de singlepayer is er nog genoeg te beleven in de co-op mode.
  • Pros: Verhaal;, graphics;, geluid;, humor;, niet te makkelijke en niet te moeilijke puzzels;, Wheatley.
  • Cons: Robotstem Glados.

  • Conclusion: Charmant, kreativ und verdammt witzig! Portal 2 erweitert das aus dem Vorgänger bekannte, süchtigmachende Spielprinzip um unterhaltsame und stimmige, neue Elemente. Die durchwachsene Story ist trotz toller, frischer Antagonisten eher Mittel zum Zweck und die Spiellänge für ein Vollpreisspiel vielleicht einen Tick zu kurz. Dafür überzeugt mit den kaum repetitiven Rätseln der Kern des Spiels.
  • Pros: tolle Testlabor-Umgebungen..., … vermischt mit exzessivem Verfall, gelungener Portal-Effekt, mehr Level-Abwechslung, amüsante Atlas-/P-Body-Effekte, relativ glaubwürdige Schwerkraft, akzeptable Lichteffekte..., extrem witzige Kommentare/Durchsagen, neues Abspannlied, zurückhaltende, dynamische Musik, hervorragende Original-GLaDOS-Stimme, einfache Shooter-Steuerung, eingängige Rätsel-Elemente, freies Speichern, tolle Coop-Abspraceh-Tools, logische Rätsel, tolle, faire ...
  • Cons: …. die nur selten ausreichen, teils karge, langweilige Ebenen, insgesamt etwas veraltete Optik, deutsche GLaDOS-Stimme menschlicher, leichte Steuerungsprobleme bei Atlas und P-Body, insgesamt recht fade Story, einige Twists vorhersehbar, mittelmäßige Spielzeit, insgesamt etwas zu leicht, selten repetitive Rätsel, kaum Wiederspielwert, selten Frustmomente
