    We plan to produce more video reviews.

    Good review, I enjoyed it. It felt a little short, but really there's only so much you can say about a game like portal without spoiling too much of the story.

    I enjoyed the video review, the only other review videos i have watched recently are those shown on ign.com which are sometimes good, sometimes not, but what i liked more about this one is there was no 8/10 score given and the review is more suited to the mature audience (unlike the youth found on full blown gaming sites)

    Oh and is there any cake?

    Seriously, you didnt like Portal 2 ?


    :eek: :eek: :eek:


    Not a bad first effort for the review as well. Was this you Phil? I sort of got the feeling the guy narrating was a bit new to reviewing, but as a first effort I think that was very good, and as you get used to it its clear reviewing will become natural.

    Can we get some requests in for upcoming titles we would like to see reviews of?

    No. It was produced by our Gaming team. Ben reviewed the game and wrote the script. It was voiced by Roger Davis and edited together by Steve Hill.
    More coming.

    All in all I think it was a good first effort.

    What will be the publishing format in the future. Will we see written review similar to the hardware reviews, but with the video review at the top etc. I think that would be cool,and it would give us a thread in which to relay comments. You could also add a poll for members to vote for their own score rating as well, so we would have the AVF scoring, and a user scoring similar to how a lot of other gaming sites have.

    I think user scores are going to be implemented in with the official scores on the site somehow or at least it has been suggested from the staff as well as users so hopefully you can expect something of the sort in furture :smashin:
