"Review from someone who has actually played the game" - By S Capo (Timonium, MD USA)
Portal 2 is a continuation of the Portal we love but we added touches that make it Valve's best game ever. Harder puzzles coupled with the introduction of Excursion Funnels, Aerial Faith Plates, Thermal Discouragement Beams, Pneumatic Diversity Vents, Repulsion Gel, and Propulsion Gel make soLving a level even more sAtisfying. The graphics are also improveD from Portal 1 alOng with more complex level deSign in the now destroyed Aperture Science facility. I don't want to spoil any of the game but if you played Portal 1, everything will feel very familiar. The PS3 version of the game includes Steam integration so you can play along in co-op mode with PC and use the steam chat feature. Trophies / Achievements are synced with Steam. PS3 buyers get the PC version for free so this is by far the best console version to purchase.
Only 2 left in stock. Ships from and sold by BA Sports.
"BEST BANG FOR PS3 OWNERS!" - By Danny Denim (RockTown VA)
A good game overall, I had owned HL2 for my Xbox a few years ago, beat it, and started playing Orange Box on PS3, overall it is a better experience.
so far I have encountered no framerate problems or anything to keep me from enjoying the game. There are load times but they are not as frequent as the Xbox version and they are not as long as some people say they are.
Plus, you don't have to worry about Steam, like you do for the PC version.
HL2 = 10/10 HL2 EP 1 = 8/10 HL2 EP 2 = 9/10 Portal = 9/10 TF2 = 10/10
Orange Box = Greatness, no matter what system you buy it for.
Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
"An incredibly funny head trip." - By Reggie (San Diego, CA USA)
If any one reading this remembers the tv show from the 70's called "The Bionic Woman," there is an episode in this show called "Doomsday is Tomorrow" (you can watch it on youtube) where the Bionic Woman is trapped in a building and has to outsmart and fight against a super computer named Alex 700. As I played Portal, it gave me the sense of being placed in this kind of deadly situation just as the Bionic Woman was in. Portal is a very cool gaming experience, and once you figure out what you can do to advance through the game while creating portals, you will feel really smart and good about yourself. A brilliantly funny head trip that is short and sweet. When Valve finally come out with Half Life 2 episode 3, I hope that they surprise me by incorporating the portal gun along with ... full review
If you're like me (the parent of a boy who loves gaming, but as a parent you understand that he doesn't want "little kid games" anymore but you don't want him playing First Person Shooter games either, lol), this is the game to pick!!! It's great for the kiddos that don't want to be stifled with the "baby games" anymore and are craving something a little more edgy with a lot more adventure! It comes with everything you need to get started and brings a great incentive to get the kids up and doing some chores too ("If you clean your room every day, you'll be able to buy a new Skylander to add to your collection in just 2 weeks!"). Plus, there are so many characters to add on later. Different elements, different stories, different possibilities! And I love that we can even use characters from the previous Skylanders ... full review
I really like the idea of a puzzle game on the ps3. Too many ps3 games are shoot-em up that are very similar and boring, with virtually the same stories and boring mobs that try and stop you with bullets. Here is a friendly game that is for all ages, that has an interesting plot, and makes you really think to solve each level. There is a companion that follows along with you in the game and helps you out.
I haven't played Portal 1, but this is the best game I've played all year!
Features: Shoot either an orange or blue portal to travel through the level to get to the goal. The exit door can be tricky to get to so you may need to fall through ceilings to get through it, sneak past gun turrets, open them by redirecting lasers, move boxes onto switches, or ... full review
I just picked up my Aqua Blue 3DS and I am very pleased. The 3DS is not perfect by any means but I do think that it is a fine system so far. As I write this some features like Netflix are not available so I may come back and update this review when I can test these features out for myself.
The system feels comfortable to hold in my hands. The size isn't too far off from the DSi. The color has a sort of metallic look to it that is very classy though I do wish that Nintendo had given us more colors to choose from. There will undoubtedly be more colors to choose from in the future though. The color isn't exactly an aqua blue, it is more of a bluish-green.
The question that most of you probably have is whether or not the 3D ... full review
"Dragon's Crown is more than a game" - By J. Andrews (Boston)
Vanillaware is not a niche developer.
Dragon's Crown is not a niche game.
It is the culmination of what gaming would have been years ago without in the intervention of 3D graphics. Dragon's Crown, aptly named, is the resplendent prince of our gaming heritage. It's as if the Byzantine Empire had continued on in some alternate dimension and you could go there anytime you wanted just by turning on your TV. It's astounding design and execution nails a treatise on the oaken doors of the AAA gaming industry who have become the slaves of novelty and the mindless servants of their own avarice.
George Kamitani and his cohort have been reaching back not just to gaming classics, but into their own true creative artistry. Famously free of focus testing and without care for what is 'trending' in the industry these courageous people ... full review
"An excellent game for children, and the hardcore crowd might enjoy it too." - By Frederick Heind (Calgary)
If you're reading this you're probably already familiar with this games gimmick, but I'll explain it anyway. It comes with a "Portal of power" and three figurines that you put on the portal, and in turn, they are "transported" into the game. There are, from what I understand,30 some toys in all, which can be bought separately, or there are some three character packs available, as well as some "Adventure packs" which Include one new character, a new level, and a couple of items that can be placed on the portal to help you, such as a potion, or defensive swords that circle you. A full collection of all the toys, and the game itself, will probably run you upwards of 300 dollars. Is it worth it? That all depends on whether you like the game or not, and your fiscal state. If you are a parent you should ... full review
