Duke Nukem Forever is one of those games where hype isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Where hype can utterly destroy a games reputation, sometimes before a game is even released.

Dropping the Need for Speed in the title this time Shift 2: Unleashed is out to make all the juices in your body flow with exhilaration at every corner.
When Portal was released back in 2007 it was part of the Orange Box package and served as almost a tech demo for this kind of gameplay. Not treated as a traditional FPS the player was given a gun that could open one portal on a wall and another portal anywhere else that would serve as its corresponding tunnel. Vavle has alot to live up to on making the sequel to such a hit and it looks like they've done it again in a much bigger way. Click the link to check out our review
