Recensioni

“If you're like me, when you played Portal 2, you covered every room in as much bouncy gel as possible. Well now it's a whole lot easier, and you can color coordinate the walls with orange gel.”
Kotaku

“A surprising and fresh revival of Portal 2’s familiar puzzle elements.”
Jeep Barnett

“It looks great, it plays well, and it lasts 2-3 hours, giving it good value for money.”

A lot harder then the original game itself in my opinion. Gameplay takes about 2-3 hours (1 hour if you manage to keep them solving really fast)

In my opinion it's a bit untested/not polished perfectly because i managed to skip atleast 1 if not more levels by jumping really high and getting on top of platforms that you are probably not supposed to get on...

For the full price it's an alright "game" but if you can get it while it's on sale then it's a great deal especially if you are a fan of the series!

Fun game takes 6 to 10 hours to complete depending on how good you are. I speedrun portal 2 so it took about 3 hours for me. Also has a easy to use editor to make maps and puzzles! 8/10!

Great Portal 2 mod that allows you to use a gel gun. Very creative design. Not much of a great story or funny narrator, but still very good.

This is an awesome mod! I really enjoyed playing it, even though I have not finished the game yet! The campaign is just really, really fun. The concept is awesome and I am surprised Valve never batted this game mechanic. I think Valve should adopt it into one of their games. I think it would be an awesome game! Could you just imagine this in VR?!

The community test chambers are really fun to play around in. I have played several of them and I am willing to play a lot more of them. I have created one and I am also willing to create a lot more of them since they are really fun to make. I got quite a few visitors on my first test chamber so I am intrigued to find out how others would react to some of my other test chambers.

I recommend playing both of the Portal games before playing this (even though you require Portal 2 to play this) so you get a little bit of insight as to what everything is in this game. Such as the level theme.

Other than that I can only recommend this game or mod (whatever you wish to call it.)! It is awesome!

If you enjoyed Portal 2, Aperture Tag is largely more of the same, but replacing the portal gun with a gel dispenser, lending itself to a rather different approach to the puzzles - including a few recycled from the original.

It's... okay, I guess. The story is barely there, and the gameplay lacks some of Portal's wow factor, but overall I found the game quite enjoyable.

PRO

-L'idea dell'arma: l'arma sinceramente non mi era dispiaciuta, l'idea dei gel su portal 2 funzionava bene, quindi perchè non farci direttamente un arma per sparare gel?

-workshop: Una dei PRO maggiori di questa mod, certi livelli funzionano meglio dei livelli ufficiali della mod (essendo dei veri rompicapo).

-L'aspetto delle room del capitolo 4

-la "fuga" del capitolo 3



CONTRO

-La storia: A differenza di "Thinking with time machine" (Altra mod) ho visto l'impegno di fare una storia.
Si svolge dopo gli eventi di Portal 2 con un altro soggetto, e saremo accompagnati da questo nuovo core... ma non vi coinvolgerà e non vi farà ridere per niente.
Peccato perchè il doppiaggio seppur amatoriale era decente, ma senza dialoghi interessanti o anche divertenti perde completamente tutto (l'esatto contrario di "portal prelude" dove i dialoghi e la storia erano molto ben fatti, ma il doppiaggio sembravano dei robot)

-Il gameplay poteva essere migliore: In portal 2 bisognava risolvere gli enigmi e capire cosa fare per attivare diversi pulsanti e andare verso l'uscita.
Qua invece bisogna solo capire come arrivare all'uscita, e sinceramente ci arrivi quasi subito e noti che di rompicapo forse c'erano solo nei ultimi livelli.

-Bug sui salvataggi: Ho letto le recensioni precedenti dove c'erano tantissime persone che si lamentavano della mancanza di una funzione di salvataggio, e da rifare così tutta la stanza. Probabilmente hanno risolto, i salvataggi manuali ci sono e pure quelli automatici nelle stanze... e purtroppo vengono qua i bug.
Mi è successo solo due volte ma rimane comunque un bug grave. Stavo saltando per andare su un pulsante, purtroppo ho calcolato male dove mettere il gel blu e quindi son caduto in acqua.... e dove mi ha salvato il salvataggio manuale? esatto, durante la caduta verso l'acqua, non potendo fare niente...
Le soluzioni erano due: o rifare tutto il capitolo, oppure usare i cheat usando "noclip" e metterti i piedi per terra. Dei bug così sono fuori dal mondo, uno che è costretto ad usare i cheat per un salvataggio manuale, io non ho parole.

-Bug sul workshop coop: Purtroppo in cooperativa il gioco da problemi. La modalità cooperativa è geniale, uno usa il Paint Gun e l'altro il Portal gun. Purtroppo Atlas, quello che tiene il paint gun, ha la pistola che a volte spara e a volte no, problema che ti fà snervosire.

-longevità: 2-2.30 ore di longevità che sarebbe accettabile se non fosse a pagamento..

-il prezzo: 5 euro per una mod sono troppi, sopratutto se la mod non è un granchè...


CONCLUSIONE
Il dlc alla fine non mi va di metterlo sconsigliato, perchè l'impegno c'è e il gameplay non è malvagio (nonostante lo abbiano messo a pagamento).
Consiglio sopratutto per il workshop della comunità, ovviamente a prezzo scontato.

I get it, the creators really liked Portal and Half-Life series, but my god this game is so unpolished.

I managed to get out of bounds 6 times, completely skip 2 puzzles, and skip 4 complete sections in puzzles.

The only limiting factors i bumped into were artificial difficulty and the worst level design i have seen in an FPS puzzle recently.

+Soundtrack is great thought.

Edit: i have 6 hours played but 4 of them were AFK, i opened the game and left the room. 2.4 hours to beat the campaign

The mod lacks polish in some very frustrating ways;
Dialogue needs work (writing, not necessarily audio)
Level design needed tweaking (might have suffered from the playtesters being too familiar with the solutions - ledges a little too far away, textures not lending to intuitive game flow/discovery, etc.)

I probably would have more to say if I bothered to play it longer, but I couldn't justify spending more time on a sub-par product.

I do not recommend spending money on this mod.

It's a good mod, but it has some tricky timing/platforming parts, where you'll die many times over. If you only want puzzles, avoid this game. The game is not that long (3 hours) and the voice over isn't the best. Some of the solutions to the puzzles involve a novel idea, so that's cool.

Recommended if you want more after Portal 2 and Portal Stories: Mel, and if you're not allergic to timing and platforming.

Aperture Tag: The game that recreates Portal 2 where, instead of portals being the main focus, you use gels.
The gels you can use at any given time are controlled by a new type of fizzler (Typically, green enables one or both gels, and purple disables both)

I suppose I should start with the story...
There is none. Aperture Tag does not have a specified timeline holder in the Portal universe, you are simply another test subject. However, you are not alone. Another personality core is introduced at the beginning of the game - Nigel. Unlike GLaDOS, Nigel doesn't have anything against you, and is more passive. He provides some speech between test chambers and instructions in other places, but that's about it.

The puzzles.
Most of the tests in the game have a decent design. All elements from Portal 2 make a comeback - Emancipation grids, excursion funnels, light bridges, even portals. Some tests, however, are either overly complicated or poorly created in a way that the gels can be exploited for shortcuts.

The escape.
When I first walked into the ALSSER room, I had no idea there was a 2nd door. I also did not know I would need to run anywhere, because I pressed one of the buttons before Nigel could even mention it. So for a good 30 seconds after I pushed the 2nd button, I was not aware of my objective at all, until I finally realized there was an opening that looked like it required propulsion gel. Even afterwards, the sequence requires some trial and error (Unless you just want to give up with that button). Most of the escape wasn't difficult at all, but on some occasions running up the long 45 degree angle wall, I lose momentum for no reason and can't make it to the next faith plate.


The ending. (It's an obvious reference to Portal, so I won't spoiler-censor it)
I walked into the last test, saw the elevated platform path line in the distance, and immediately knew what was going to happen. And hell, was I disappointed. However, an alternate ending exists where you can close the pit and instead be sent up an elevator to the surface... or so you'd think. Yeah, both endings are not only incredibly anti-climactic, but they result in your death. Just look at Portal Stories: Mel. The ending to that game is actually reasonable, but here it's just "Alright, that concludes the tests. Now testing protocol states that I have to kill you."

The verdict.
Aperture Tag is a decent game overall, if you have some spare money sitting in your Steam wallet and you're bored. The tests are unique, the solutions are clever, and honestly, who doesn't love coating the entire interior of a room with gel? The voice acting isn't terrible, but just one character is a little underwhelming. Personally, I'd wait until this game is on a discount to purchase. Even though the paint gun opens new possibilities, at the end of the day, I'd much rather be thinking with portals instead.

7.8 / 10

This game is very fun, and im not just saying this because im a fan of portal games. It presents almost entirely new gameplay mechanics and a new perspective on multiplayer games, as the co-op requires the cooperation of 2 players and understanding of the games gel mechanics and gun along with the portal gun of the earlier games. The only promblem I've had is an occasional missing texture.

A unique type of mod from others in the Portal series, Aperture Tag forces you to put down your portal gun in exchange for a new type of handheld device capable of shooting the mobility gels which are featured in Portal 2. The few early puzzles I have solved are easy to figure out but difficult to execute due to the game's mechanics. Small but significant things such as the gun spraying gel lower than I aim, as well as extremely precise jumps which cause me to fall into acid on almost every attempt, essentially make the game an unplayable experience. I paid good money for this game and am so far impressed with its gameplay mechanics and story, but until I can complete a level without making a proper jump only to fall a few inches short of the platform I am supposed to land on, I won't be able to play and/or recommend this game.

I feel like the biggest complaint is that this is an average-quality mod with a price tag to it, as opposed to several mods of very high caliber without any dollar sign attached. I actually like Nigel's voice actor (as opposed to the other negative reviews). However, the ability to solve some puzzles in very unorthodox and unintended ways, 'fake' difficulty (timing and precision being off in the slightest can kill you in some puzzles), and the fact that you can break out of the map because the walls aren't high enough in some places are really unnappealing. Unlike most other single player mods, story is severely lacking in this one, only really banking on Nigel's quips and your paranoia that he might pull a GLADOS. The co-op tag is a total fluke, by the way. There's no co-op.

Update: Found the alternative ending. It isn't much different from the previous one, really, (assuming you follow the path they expect you to take) just a change of scenery. That little extra effort for nothing new.

First off, this is a great idea for a mod, but I believe that it wasn't executed properly. It focuses heavily on testing rather than the story, and the story isn't that good at all anyway. This mod needs more exposition. I bought it and I conclude that it should not be worth the $4.99, this mod should be free as there are other mods out there that are much better and are free. Its fun if you're looking for the mechanics at least. Everything else is lackluster.
