"There’s a noticeable lack of criticism for Portal 2 that contrasts with the more negative reactions of people I know in person (Nathan isn’t the only one), and that’s kind of unsettling. The anonymous Internet verdict is still singing hyperbolic honeymoon praises over the year-old game and its metacritic score is just barely inching ahead that of its predecessor. I’m here to challenge all that, and I just want to go ahead and say it: Portal 2 is (gasp!) an underwhelming sequel."
