Average User Score: 8.7Apr 27, 2011My opinion:
Gameplay - 9/10 - I enjoyed this game much more then any other i have played in recent memory.
Length - 7/10 - I got 6 - 7 hours worth out of the single player, taking my time to become engrossed. as well as 5 hours to complete the Co-op and a few hours listening to the developers commentary.
Story - 10/10 - brilliant, everything i expected from a valve title and more.
Innovation 3/5 - not really anything that wasnt covered in Portal, except for the new gels.
Graphics - 3/5 - Many games with much more advanced graphics, but the source engine has dated extremely well.
Overall - 8/10 - A very fun and funny addition to the Portal franchise.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Jan 7, 2011I dont know what it is about this game, the gameplay on paper seems like it should be boring, the story is all over the place and the controls are very annoying and clunky, but something about this game keeps drawing me into playing it and i am having alot of fun.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Jan 7, 2011first thought: OMFG WHY WONT THIS RUN ON MY WINDOWS XP?!?!
second thought: Screw it i need to upgrade anyway
Third thought: OMG its still laggy as crap becuase my computer only has 2 gb of RAM and an 8800 GTX graphics card
Fourth thought: *ding* ill turn the settings down
Fifth thought: this is actually pretty fun with all the settings turned to the lowest
Sixth thought: *about 5 hours in* this game has the most horrible story that has ever been created by a game
seventh thought: *about 10 hours in* who cares about story? i just attached a jeep to my plane with a grappling hook, flew the plane off the runway, got the jeep caught in a tree and had to jump out of the plane before i got hurtled into the ground and exploded!
Final thought: Fun game, bad story, very high system requirments, can be a tad repetitive (especially if your going for full completion)… Expand
Average User Score: tbdJan 7, 2011dont buy this expansion, coming from a guy who really enjoyed the full game this expansion was a waste of money as it is the same thing as the full game only adding 2 hours or so of gameplay… Expand
Average User Score: 4.8Jan 7, 2011everyone that wants to buy this game for customisation and creativity with your decks, dont... Do not even look at this game and go play magic the gathering: online, or whatever its called. i bought this game and thoroughly enjoyed it for what it is, a card game with locked decks, a useless story and probably horrible AI for more experienced players seen as i beat it pretty easily and this is the first time iv ever played a card game. but what the heck right? i had a damn good time while it lasted and i picked it up for $2.50 so im happy… Expand
Average User Score: 6.1Jan 7, 2011Although its been downsized in scale and mass i found this game extremely fun with an immersive singleplayer. the only reason i can think that lots of people are giving it bad reviews is because its different to the original. Im almost 100% sure if this was given a new name and advertised as a tactical strategy game it would be raved about by everyone.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.8Jan 7, 2011Not a bad game. sure there are a lot of things im not fussed about, like the fact that you don't get time to think in the single player campaign because it is constant action and the random lag spikes in multiplayer for the first month or so was really annoying, but it was fun for a fair while and i got about 50 hours out of the game before i moved on.… Expand
