The moment that many a gamer has been waiting for has finally arrived today (well, those that live in North America anyway), the moment that they can start playing the much-anticipated Portal 2 game. This of course means that we’re now starting to see the very first game reviews come in.

We thought we would take a look at a few of the early reviews, and let’s just say that the early review round up definitely showed some pretty impressive scores. In fact, Oli Welsh from the eurogamer.net website gave the Portal 2 game a perfect score of 10/10, describing the title as a masterpiece!!

Jamin Smith from the videogamer.com website also gave the game a perfect 10/10 score. According to Jamin, who also describes Portal 2 as a masterpiece, the game is genuinely hilarious and very well written, with fantastic co-op gameplay and great diversity to its puzzles.

Meanwhile, Alex over on thesixthaxis.com website gave the game an overall score of 9/10, stating that it’s much better than the original Portal game. One of the downsides to the Portal 2 game in Alex’s opinion is the fact that the end segment is a slight disappointment.

The final review we looked at comes from David Scammell over at gamerzines.com. David gave the game an impressive score of 95/100, describing it as one of the classiest, funniest, most rewarding and amazingly beautiful games that you’ll play on your PC this year.
