Book Description

The Final Hour of Portal 2 takes you deep within the top-secret offices of Valve, creators of Half-Life, for an unvarnished look at the creative process behind the new video game Portal 2. Journalist Geoff Keighley was granted unprecedented “fly on the wall” access to Valve over the past three years to create this story. From the hush-hush Portal prequel that was shelved to the last minute scramble to complete the game’s story, The Final Hours of Portal 2 is a gripping and dramatic story.

Please note the Kindle version does not include as many photos or the videos that are available in the iPad version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick read, lots of fun January 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of spoilers, so don't read the book if you haven't already played Portal 2 all the way though.

Gives lots of insight into Valve's creative process and the people behind it, and the numerous starts, stops, and start-overs that went into the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, some background info into Valve February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good read about some of the background information about Portal 2 and the workings at Valve. I actually got interested into this book after reading some of the online stories about what Portal 2 went through.

Pros:
Good, quick read
Provides insight into Valve life
Interesting stories intertwined about different aspects of Valve & Portal 2

Cons:
Like others said, some information vague or missing
Really wish they would have told you more about what Portal 2 WAS going to be
