Default worth the buy?

wel i saw a thread with portal tricks and when i saw it i was quite intrigued with the gameplay. i just watched more gameplay and it looks cool. so i have a few questions

1. how much is this of a shooter? (my gaming site says its a puzzle shooter i could be wrong though)
2. is it worth the buy and why u think that? (i dont like shooters but some shooters i like such as bioshock 2)
3. i sure wanna try it out but in our country renting is forbidden and we need to pay full price so thats why i ask if its worth it.

1) It's only really so much a puzzle shooter is that you make the portals using a portal gun. You don't shoot NPCs... just fire a portal at a wall.

2) Definitely! There's nothing else like it, besides portal 1. It's great fun playing around with the physics. The dialogue during the single player is by far the funniest i've ever heard in a game and you'd have to have your sense of humour removed to not find it funny You don't need to have played the first to get the story really, i didn't play the first. There's a co-op mode so you can play with friends. The DLC is free, well the first one is anyway (summer release) and if what i read about them is correct they're likely to release more free DLC in the future. Seriously mate, don't let the word shooter throw you off, it isn't really one and the gameplay is so straight-forward you can literally just pick up and play without any trouble.

3) That sucks! But yeah, with the free DLC and a free download of portal 2 for your pc included it's definitely worth the price overall.

Hope you get it

The DLC is free and Valve (the makers) have a history of releasing endless amounts of free DLC according to a magazine article i just read about them (but don't hold me to that as this is the first game i've got from them lol).

Yeah, i didn't know about the free pc download til i looked at the back of the box when i got home lol. Also the pc version has mod tools so there will be user created content which is reported to be available to play on all consoles (but only creatable on pc). So by the looks of things it'd be a bit like LittleBigPlanet in so much as that there'd be infinite levels, in theory. But i obviously can't confirm that myself as PSN is down but it was reported a while back.

1. its not a shooter. Its first person, but the only thing you shoot are portals not people(or robots or zombies etc...) I guess you could relate it to Mirror's Edge, but only in the sense that its first person and NOT a shooter.

2. I do not remember EVER playing a game that had me smiling and laughing so much through it(and my first system was an Atari 400...yeah I've been playing videogames probably since before you were born). If you're not laughing at the story, you're solving fun and inventive puzzles. It was worth every penny, and I've barely touched the MP since the PSN is down. I've also played it through 3 times already, 1 initial playthrough, 1 for trophy cleanup, and 1 with commentary.

3. What country are you in? thats a little rediculous IMO. Anyway, you won't be dissappointed, fatty fatty no parents. (if you want to get that buy the game!)

It's definitely worth it. I hate FPS's and this is one of my favorite games so far ever (though I think I may be only 1/2 to 2/3 done) It's definitely worth the money! The gameplay is so different then any other game, er, besides Portal 1. I might give Portal 1 a spin if I were you, though Portal 2 is definitely better, it's nice to have the back story.

What's the commentary like? Worth a playthrough to listen to?

They're mostly technical, programming, design, etc. At least the ones i've listened to were. I've only listened to the Chapter 1-2 though. There is also no save so i don't know what happens when you die.

Ah right okay. I'll probably give it a miss then. Not really that bothered by things like that lol. Thanks for the quick reply
