I'd try the first one anyways, it's fun as hell.

In two weeks I'll try portal 2, I just don't have any time for games lately because of finals coming up.

Finished it. Oh My God...

That was a great game. I mean, Valve has made some fantastic games in the past, but the level of detail and the art of the storytelling in this game was SPECTACULAR!!! Definitely worth the money and worth the wait.

This is definitely one of the best games I've ever played. I know I said that about Mass Effect 2 as well, but Valve really knows how to tell a story.

*cough* Moondust *cough*

Is the whole game co-op (e.g. must be played multiplayer) or can you play the whole thing single player?

Why did it seem to get easier after the mid-point? I was a little disappointed in the level of difficulty near the end as well. Why didn't we get more liquids to use earlier on???

It's a great well-polished game though, and it's not like I'm crying about it, but man, once you get into a groove of finding the solution, it gets pretty ez. Co-op is the wave of the future, mark my words, when Valve said they are going that way, makes sense.

Anyhow, overall I did enjoy this game, i just want like 50 more hrs of game play GOSH DARNIT!!!!

Most people seem to think it gets harder as you go on, but for me it got easier and easier, especially once the various gels entered the mix.

I dunno, maybe our brains are just wired backwards.


I'll definitely have to give co-op a try, if it's quite a bit harder even with two people that will be nice.

O.o.......k.......

anyway difficulty does get harder as you progress till a certain point where u start again (like cave johnsons area)...

co-op was pretty hard tho, again early easy, but as u get to the last ones...it gets pretty tricky lol...

maybe ure really smart and it was too easy for you..

final boss was dissapointing tho...that was waaaaaaaaay tooooooooooooooooooo easy....but i guess wheazley isn't exactly smart.

That's what a third of the story line is developed on.

"Oops, that last time I called him a moron may have been one too many."

Good LoLs in this game.
