Sophisticated humor! Finally!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Portal 2 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I know a lot of people are going to write excellent reviews about game play etc. I wanted to make a quick note about how outstandingly funny this game is. The comedic writing is excellent throughout, the timing and general performances (from Stephen Merchant in particular, but the whole cast too) are spot on and I have been laughing out loud while playing the game on my own. I never laugh when I'm alone.
The game is rated E for everyone, but I'm pretty sure that some of the jokes might go slightly over a 8 year-old's head. That is a huge plus in my book. I have played a few other Xbox360 games that were supposedly funny (Battlefield Bad Company 1 + 2 for example), and they left me cold. Juvenile this game is not.
So yeah: Challenging puzzles, original and hilarious writing. What more could you ask for?

I agree completely, the humor in this game was extremely well written and even more spectacularly performed.

first of all i must point out that my real name is Peter also. more importantly i want to say that i've only played a couple hours and the humor has been one of my favorite parts. obviously gameplay is more important but the humor really makes me laugh out loud sometimes.

I'm pretty shocked and appalled that your real name isn't Chunky, Mr. Drummer. As far as gameplay goes, I really can't wait for the user-generated content - replay value so far has just been going through the developers' commentary. I guess there is also the excruciating process of watching my wife play it and attempting to keep my mouth shut.

I agree the jokes in the game were HILARIOUS. I can see why it might go through an 8 year old's head. it was rated E10 though. My favorite quote was the Lemon rant
