Portal 2’ and ‘Mortal Kombat’ top new video game releases

By Omar L. Gallaga




New video game releases this week:
“Portal 2.” — “This was a triumph. I’m making a note here: huge success.” The first lyrics to Jonathan Coulton’s closing credits song for Valve’s brilliant 2007 game “Portal” (voiced by the robot GLaDOS) still give gamers chills. The game was a clever, perfectly executed series of physics puzzles combined with humorously dark writing. In the much-anticipated sequel, Aperture Science’s GLaDOS is back and she’s brought co-op multiplayer modes, bigger test labs and new characters. In a unique bonus, the PlayStation 3 edition includes free codes to download the PC and Mac versions and the game can be played online cooperatively within those versions. Rated E-10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. $50-$60, for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC/Mac (sold together).
“Mortal Kombat.” — There may have been one (or three) too many “Mortal Kombat” games over the years, but the original developers of the long-running series are hoping this reboot, with an emphasis on bone-crunching 2-D fighting, more realistically violent blood and gore, and deeper storylines. Will it be enough to win back old-school “Kombat” fans? Rated M for Mature. $60-$100 for Standard and Collector’s Editions, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
