Portal 2 review

By 20 April 2011

By 6 April 2011

With 2009’s Need for Speed: Shift, Electronic Arts did the unthinkable; not just producing the first decent Need for Speed game in donkey’s years, but a sim-style racer that was a credible rival to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo. Sure, the handling... >>
