“Technically the ‘main feature’ in the Thinking with Time Machine mod is a time machine ..., which is great and all but look, LEGS.”

Alright, if you ask yourself "Do I need to download this mod"(Which is weird because it's free and almost everyone say it's awesome), this review is gonna show you exactly why you should.

Plot
Ok, so the plot is kind of a meh, and a bit cliche as a time travel story, but the start is amazing as you have already seen in the trailer.

Length
It's not as long as Portal 2, but as it works on the same principle of Co-Op(Think for two players), so the difficulty would make it feel longer.

Difficulty
This mod is much more challanging than the actual game. Really, even Portal 1 isn't hard like some of these chambers. Lovers of challanges, you're gonna LOVE this mod.

Differences From the Base Game
Ok, almost everything is now completley retextured and looks awesome.

Overall
Overall, this is a great mod, very challanging, a bit short, and while Portals are not the main mechanic anymore, you should all play this. It's also free and you can see your legs.

Pros:
• It's free!
• It runs fantastically with no bugs as far as I'm aware. It looks like it was made by Valve themselves, or as if it was its own game!
• Brand new mechanics. It's not about the Portal Gun, it's about the Time Machine and the Portal Gun.
• You can see your legs!
Cons:
• It's free! The developers of this mod deserves money for their valuable work.
