Portal 2: Peer Review Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

eTeknix has poasted a new review of Valve's free Peer Review DLC update for its action puzzler Portal 2. The game features a new co-op test track with both single player and co-op challenge modes. eTeknix gave the game a silver award.

From the review:

Now, as I mentioned previously the main element of the DLC is the new Art Therapy section of co-op. Entering the zone will see you through 9 different levels. Each level has a mixture of everything you will have encountered previously, lasers, cubes/spheres, light platforms, excursion funnels and of course the gels. Oh… let’s not forget those pesky little turrets either. While we did see 9 levels introduced, it didn’t add as much gameplay as you may think. If you’re still thinking with portals from the previous play through, or just keep up the practice, you’ll be whizzing through the 9 levels in no time.

Steam has me clocked at 2 hours of gameplay, however there was a good period of AFKs from my partner in crime (he knows who he is..). So all in all you’re probably looking at 60-90 minutes dependant on your skill level, and your partners for that matter.

There is a storyline to the Art Therapy course. P-Body and Atlas are pretty much on a mission to save GLaDOS who is currently being attacked by an unknown source. It’s your job to reach her and vanquish this enemy as an elite killing squad….. equipped with portal guns…
