What about him?
Seriously, he doesn't make poeTV any worse than the rest of us.
Although I do fault him for taking on the name of the worst mixed drink that features my favorite liquor.

Oh, so you guys hate him now?
All the cool kids stop liking something or someone after a set amount of time.

Five for Yahtzee.

I agree it's lost the surprise factor, and some sections are padded.
But you know what? It's funnier, the puzzles are better and more inventive, and you get a whole co-op campaign on top of a bigger single player. I'd agree with "Portal was better in its time, and so gets better scores", but not "Portal 2 isn't as good as Portal".

portal 2 was excellent. The comedy, puzzles, level design etc. was all great but while playing I didnt feel it was a cohesive whole. The various elements felt like they had been crammed slightly awkwardly into the same game.
I thought portal one was a masterpiece as it had reached the stage where nothing could have been removed without ruining it, though I think yahtzees punnet of cherries and sawdust is a bit harsh, I'd say a great big punnet of cherries, jelly babies and mints. all nice things individually but not sure about mixing them together.
I'd say that's about as fair a comment about the game as you will ever find. 5 ghost stars for you Mr. Purple.
That sounds like a scene out of Gravity's Rainbow, or a drink I'd make you.

The only part of this review I really agreed with were those padded areas that were in between puzzles. I was able to figure out the puzzles all on my own throughout the course of the game, but I was forced to consult a guide no less than 4 times when I could not find that little patch of white wall that could shoot me to the platform ahead.
But, I think Yahtzee is completely offbase here. Portal 1 was incredible, but when you take the whole of the two games it's almost pathetically easy. There are only like 4 REAL puzzles in the game, the rest are just basically a tutorial that we accepted and loved because the concept was so fresh and invigorating. Portal 2 has great puzzles out the ass, and I would take almost every single puzzle in Act 3 of the second game over anything from the first. The only thing that the first game has over the second is that incredible final sequence, which Portal 2 tries to recreate several times, but never quite gets it. The last boss fight is even better though.
I actually liked the bits between puzzles. But then I'm an avid sightseer when I play games, I really love just standing around looking at the eye candy.
