no, no problem, just because something is a mappack and not a mod does not mean that it doesn't deserve praise, I have seen single room maps that are the most original and beautifully designed games.
Its quality not quantity, as always.

To answer your question, personal preferences regarding the individual projects.
Project beat was unfinished and not as revealing as it was sold as, blue portals was far too difficult to be enjoyable.
Portal 2 mappack was ingenious, original and build very fast showing great skill.
I don't see why you need me to justify my reviews, but have it as you will.

Glad to hear people are liking the track. I do intend to 'un-muddy' the intro a little. It terms of vocals i haven't really given it too much thought yet, i know arpit196 sent through a good idea, i will get round to adding lyrics of my own at some point but i'm not really comfortable putting my own voice to it.
Let em know if there is anything else people whould like to see in terms of musical changes

Is there a way for the player to 'fix' the door in the hidden room or am I wasting my time carting the vent cover about?
Great work by the way,loved the new lifts. Are you thinking of continuing to de-make portal 1,

A little tip from one composer to another, get yourself on and learn how to use their HTML set embedding.
I've used it a few times, its real handy for posting whole soundtracks/albums here on moddb.
The Portal: Awakening OST is a good example of it.
Good luck and keep up the good work.
