Nice little bundle

This is a great bundle that includes both Portal 1 and 2.The original Portal took the computer gaming world by storm and surprised many people (in a good way). The game is full of witty humour and challenging puzzles where you use your gun to shoot portals that you and objects (such as companion cubes) can enter into to teleport out of the other shot portal. The game was so successful that a sequel was released and this improved the game experience in almost everyway by presenting the player with more challenging puzzles, more tools to use, differing environments and stronger character development. Portal 2 even has a level editor and Steam Workshop support where you can upload your own test chamber creations as well as downloading those that other people have made. Portal 2 also has co-op play where you and a friend need to work together to solve puzzles and reach the exits of many different levels.

Both games have a nice visual style utilising the Source engine very well, and the audio in both games is excellent with humorous voice acting containing lots of good jokes and insults. Both games also have catchy songs at the end, although the one in the original Portal is probably better than the song at the end of Portal 2.

This is a great bundle that is very much worth your time if you haven't experienced the world of Portal yet. The sequel is definitely better, but the original provides a great warm-up. This pack will provide you with a great single player and multiplayer experience. Just be aware though, if you want to play the multiplayer that Portal 2 has, you will need a friend who also has Portal 2.

Amazing bundle

Speed4Runs | Nov. 29, 2013 | See all Speed4Runs's reviews »

Portal is a very innovative game, and Portal 2 is an advanced version of the first one. The major difference between Portal (1) and Portal 2 is that the first one has an amazing performance and graphics ratio, while Portal 2 has some kind of poor performance and somehow improved graphics from the first one. The innovation is the portal gun which is very funny and can blow your mind. Portal 1 has very easy puzzles and ends soon, while Portal 2 has harder puzzles (yet not too hard) and it lasts longer.

Graphics + performance: 6.25/10

Portal 1 has very good graphics which are very clean and an amazing performance; Portal 2 has improved graphics (though not so much) and poor performance.

Gameplay: 7/10

Amazing and innovative gameplay for both games.

Longevity: 5.75/10

Portal 1 ends too soon, while Portal 2 lasts way more (although it's still not a so long game).

Sound: 7.5/10

They both have some amazing soundtracks and dubbing, and the radio "easter egg" simply blows your mind. Awesome.

Plot: 6/10

Very good plot with some twists. It's very enjoyable and intriguing.

Final score: 65/100

Very good bundle. I recommend this to everyone.
