Mod Review on Dec 1st, 2010 - 1 person agrees 1 person doesn't

Even though this is 1.0 but I will say this is right now the best Portal mod period...but there were problems.

*this is constructive criticism*

Gameplay:
In the original Portal game the chambers go from easy to hard gradually but in this from easy chamber 0-1 (of course) to hard 2, 3, 4 and it gets worse I had to watch a walk through just to get it and even worse there were some chambers I had to use noclip because it was impossible or unplayable just to get past parts. So you guys made this mod for hardcore Portal fans? which is not a bad thing but for newcomers or portal fan like myself that hadn't played portal in a while. So in future updates need to tone down the difficulty so in each chamber gets gradually harder not easy then hard right off the bat. Oh I forgot to mention the physics using different cubes like fire, ice, action, etc really changes the playing field in a awesome way including wind turbines and gravity pads.

Sounds:
Wow I'm impressed with the sounds of the mod there were times that relaxing music that help keep you in a relax state that you can think what to do next and I love that...oh the turret's great voice acting but I'm so used to the original voice that is was...strange but not bad maybe in a future update be able to change the voice from whats in the mod or switch it to the original.

Graphics/loading:
Wow for a Portal mod I'm really impressed and I was surprised that I had the graphics maxed out with motion blur and still runs smoothly which is really impressive. Speaking of that the loading was for a mod wow really really fast and wow every well done on optimizing the mod with this speed.

Story:
Well it's similar to Portal story but I'm not going to give out much info just because that will spoil the fun...

Overall:
The experience of a Portal mod that works is amazing even it's in 1.0 stage so it does have its problems but once you figure it out its worth wild.
