Re: Please Rate This Review - Portal 2
I think it flows pretty well in terms of writing, but in terms of criticism I don't think the previous references to Portal are relevant or fair.
If you want to mention how playing the first will add to the experience, by all means -- but you seem to be grading a new game based on the standards of its predecessor, which is dangerous ground to tread.
I think you hovered around a great point about the tutorial feel, however. The middle segment of the game, especially, with all the paint and such, was really poorly paced. It felt like you were just learning things and then learning something else, instead of facing interesting challenges.
